NYY Minor League Update & Leaders (7/10)

The Yankees minor league affiliates on a whole are doing pretty well this year. They have three teams currently in first place and have scored almost 300 more runs than they have given up.

One team in particular to keep your eye on is the FCL squad. There’s an awful lot of talent on this team and I expect several promotions after the All Star Break.


There’re two stats in particular that I pay close attention to. For pitchers, it’s their strikeouts to walks ratio. This shows that they have good command of the strike zone and they don’t give up many free passes. On offense, it’s the V-Rating. For those that have read any of my articles in the past several years know it measures the overall performance (if you are unfamiliar, please search the archives here at Start Spreading the News).

Based on this, I feel that Ryan Anderson is a name to get familiar with as he is Rule 5 eligible and I can see him being selected if the Yankees don’t protect him.

Lots of their top offensive producers are from the FCL and DSL where they typically score more runs because the teenage pitchers walk lots of batters. Among the players in the upper levels, the best production has been Bauers, Palensky, Rortvedt, Florial, and Pereira.

Here are the organization’s leaders for both offense and pitching. Does anyone surprise you?

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

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."
