Welcome To IIATMS Prospect Week 2016

We barely snuck it in before pitchers and catchers had to officially report, but that almost works out perfectly as another outlet to bridge the gap between then and the end of football season.  Welcome back to IIATMS Prospect Week, folks, the one week out of the year where we put a dedicated focus on the Yankee farm system and rank our top 30 organizational prospects.  As time allows, we'll try to sneak in a few more prospect-centric posts around the top 30, but that's the main focus and we'll be rolling that out over the course of the next 5 days in a similar fashion to last year. Later today we'll start Prospect Week 2016 by looking back at 2015, more specifically the 2015 IIATMS Top 30, to review all the players who disappeared from last year's rankings, either by graduating to the Majors, getting traded to another team, or not performing well enough to retain their spot.  There was a high amount of turnover from last year to this, so that post will be a long one.  Following that, here's how the rest of the week lays out:

Tuesday- 2016 IIIATMS Top 30 Honorable Mentions

Wednesday- Players 30-21

Thursday- Players 20-11

Friday- Players 10-1

Check back a little later for the honorable mentions, where I'll give a little spotlight time to the 6 players who didn't make the cut for this year's top 30.  And if you'd like to revisit last year's top 30 one more time, you can do that here, here, and here.
