Continuing with their league top 20 series, Baseball America named Ryan Westmoreland the top prospect of the Short Season NY-Penn League. Four Yankee farmhands made the list: Arodys Vizcaino at #3, Adam Warren at #12, Jimmy Paredes at #14, and Neil Medchill at #18. The subscriber only scouting report on Vizcaino says that he “could have a plus curveball to go with a plus-plus fastball down the road,” but he’ll need to work on his changeup to stick as a starter. An unnamed NL scout loves Warren’s pitchability, and one league manager dropped an Adam Lind comp on Medchill.
The South Atlantic League list comes out this Friday, so get ready for some Manny Banuelos love.
