Sanchez tops MLB.com’s top 20 Yankees prospects list

By

The crew at MLB.com published their list of the top 20 Yankees prospects today, a list that is topped by C Gary Sanchez. No surprise there. OF Mason Williams and OF Slade Heathcott round out the top three. Jim Callis published his list of prospects 21-25 as well.

MLB.com’s lists are always great because they include full (and free) scouting reports, 20-80 scouting scale grades for individual tools, and video for many prospects. The rankings can be a little unique from time to time — this year’s list looks pretty reasonable to me, perhaps because Callis took it over — but that’s okay. Different perspectives are a good thing.

Other Yankees prospects lists: RAB, Baseball America, Keith Law, Baseball Prospectus.

    Will you please trade Sabathia to Oakland? He will be like 6-20 this year.

      Shhh! We’ll never manage to pull of the trade if you leak your perfect knowledge of CC’s certain failure to the enemy!

      • Robert G Kramer

        Matt Sakki, he’s a goop. All you got to tell him is Russia is planning to nuke them and he’ll run away.

    Yankees are still working on a Headley deal centered around Angelo Gumbs. The package is said to include either Nuno or Phelps, a catcher and more.

    The Yankees are in talk to acquire Chase Headley without an extension. Talks are centered around Nuno, John Ryan Murphy and Angelo Gumbs.”

      Ahhhhhhh, the incredibly reliable source that is the jagoffs at NoMaas.

    Mike its SJK, I posted this blog on nomaas over the weekend. Your plagiarized my work. You can settle for 30 thou.

    • Angelo

      ^^^I imagine this guy will get blocked soon enough…?

  • forensic

    Well, this is an interesting set of comments…

    • dkidd

      yeah, that escalated quickly

    • ALZ

      And according to timestamps it took him about 45 minutes to come up with them.

    I’m pretty excited for the Milb season too. It was a down year, and many of the players didn’t get the stats to boost their rep. Aside from Austin, who is a safe player all the rest on the top 10 have huge potential, and I like that. They also have several huge potential pitchers, something it is hard to buy in free agency.

    There’s been a troll posting under the name “Matthew Saiki” on No Maas. I suspect there is a real Matt Saiki somewhere, but this isn’t him. There are a couple of trolls who frequent No Maas who like to do that. You can be sure he isn’t really SJK.

    • The Great Gonzo

      Didn’t think anyone was all that worried

  • Jorge Steinbrenner

    Someone needs to go back to trolling school I see. Maybe Greg and qwerty have an online course.

    What is that going on at the top of the thread?
