Yankees shut out of Baseball America’s top 20 NYPL prospects list


Just like the rookie level Gulf Coast League, the Yankees did not land a single prospect on Baseball America’s Top 20 NY-Penn League prospects list today. Short Season Staten Island was terrible this year, as the club was stocked with lower round draft picks from last year and college seniors from this year. The best prospect on the club was probably OF Ravel Santana, who was recovering from his devastating ankle injury and only produced an 83 wRC+.

The full top 20 schedule can be found here. The next relevant list is the Low-A South Atlantic League, which will be released on Wednesday. The Yankees will be well-represented on that list, as OF Mason Williams, C Gary Sanchez, and OF Tyler Austin are all but guaranteed spots, likely in the top ten.

    word around instructs Banuelos to have Tommy Jones surgery in a week or so

      That’s not a big deal. At least it’s not Tommy John surgery. That has a much longer rehab to it.

      Why the fuck did they wait til October. Idiots. now he loses 2 seasons instead of getting it done in may.

    With Santana’s down year, Rutckyj’s the only guy I think I could even begin to make a case for.

    We have to start thinking about our approach to scouting and drafting. AAA and AA this year with only retreads and no prospects to bring up. Can the low minors bring us success in the next few years?

    Am i the only one concerned with the abilities of Mark Newman and Damon Oppenheimer?
