NYY Minor League Update & Leaders (6/1)

The Yankees farm system entered the season ranked in the 10-13 vicinity out of the 30 organizations. As May is coming to a close, let’s take some time to review how they have done up until this point.

Of the four affiliates, only the Hudson Valley Renegades are in first place. The Patriots are also having a good year, while Scranton and Tampa are both under .500.


Specific players that have played extraordinarily well are Jake Bauers, Estevan Florial, Aaron Palensky, and Matt Krook. Bauers and Krook have earned promotions to the Majors. Florial seems destined to be traded away at the deadline and will earn his opportunity with a different team. Palensky is perhaps opening up eyes

Top rated prospect Anthony Volpe has graduated from his status as a prospect as he has exceeded 150 Major League at bats. Since he was highly regarded the team position will be falling.

Oswald Peraza, the team’s second highest ranked has proven that AAA is no longer a challenge to him. He will likely spend much of the second half in the Majors.

Jasson Dominguez has had a repeat of last year and has gotten off to a terrible start.

Austin Wells was injured in the early part of the season but is back to being a top prospect and has cracked MLB Pipeline’s top 100. His bat will likely get him a closer look as the season rolls on.

Spencer Jones has been demolishing Hi A pitching, however he has developed a propensity for striking out way too much which will keep him where he is for awhile.


Jhony Brito is close to exceeding the limit for innings pitched and will remove himself from being a prospect.

Randy Vasquez just had a successful debut and should have earned himself another opportunity.

Chase Hampton is expected to move quickly as he sports a high strike out versus low walk rate.


The organization once again has approximately 120 players eligible for the next rule 5 draft. Some of the names to become familiar with either because they are protected or traded away beforehand are:

  • Ryan Anderson

  • Clayton Beeter

  • Juan Carela

  • Blas Castano

  • Jasson Dominguez

  • Elijah Dunham

  • Antonio Gomez

  • Aaron Palensky

  • Agustin Ramirez

  • Brock Selvidge

  • Jared Serna

  • Alexander Vargas

  • Austin Wells.

Florial was DFA'd in April. If no one picked him off of waivers, such that he could go back to AAA with the Yankees. I infer from that that no other club thinks he's an MLB-quality player, either.

Just saw Somerset @ Erie for two games- Dominguez looks totally lost- Wells looks like still searching for a glove position- For those two games, Pereira looked most ready (overall) to move up

Wells and Dominguez are the only ones guaranteed a 40 man spot. Dunham may be left off simply because of all the OF prospects behind him. Pereira is the OF prospect i believe will be traded at the deadline. Florial. I have no idea why he is really here, short of simply because the rules say he has no choice, as BC was never and will never give him a real chance. But trade him away when he eas a top rated prospect? Fahghetaboutit!

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
