SSTN Top Prospects: Unranked (1 of 2)

James Vliestra assembles and analyses all of the top Yankees prospect names to know! Today we feature a few unranked names.

 

Jeisson Rosario (OF):

Age (As of 4/1/23): 23.4 Years Old

Height/Weight: 6'1" & 190 Pounds

Acquired: Claimed off Waivers from the Boston Red Sox

Rule 5 Eligible: December, 2023


2022 Review:

Designated for Assignment ahead of the 2022 season by the Boston Red Sox to make room for Trevor Story, which allowed the New York Yankees to have him for nothing. In 104 games last season in Somerset, Rosario had an OPS of .771.

2023 Preview:

With some of the Yankees best prospects in the upper levels of the farm system, and veterans clogging up Scranton, it's tough to imagine Rosario being a starter in 2023.


2023 Preseason Cross-Publication Prospect Rankings:

Analysis of Rankings:

Someone always tries to be smarter than everyone else, and while Rosario may be talented, he's not a top 20 prospect in this system.

 

Raimfer Salinas (OF):

Age (As of 4/1/23): 22.2 Years Old

Height/Weight: 6'0" & 175 Pounds

Acquired: Signed as an International Free Agent in 2017 for $1.85 Million

Rule 5 Eligible: December, 2023


2022 Review:

In 2022, Salinas played in Tampa and produced to an OPS of only .666. That was down 130 points from the previous year in the FCL.

2023 Preview:

In 5 years since signing he's only played 162 games, so Salinas needs reps and he should be able to get them in Tampa. Hopefully he stays healthy and makes progress, namely harder contact.

Ronny Rojas (3B):

Age (As of 4/1/23): 21.6 Years Old

Height/Weight: 6'0" & 180 Pounds

Acquired: Signed as an International Free Agent in 2017 for $1 Million

Rule 5 Eligible: December, 2023


2022 Review:

Since signing his lucrative contract almost 6 years ago, his career quadruple slash line is an abysmal .174/.349/.358/.708. And, as though it weren't even possible, his 2022 numbers were below in each: .168/.328/.347/.675.

2023 Preview:

As of now I can't picture him in full season ball, considering how over matched as he has been. He would need to improve tremendously for the Yankees to get some sort of a return on their investment.

Josue Panacual (OF):

Age (As of 4/1/23): 21.2 Years Old

Height/Weight: 5'10" & 160 Pounds

Acquired: Signed as an International Free Agent in 2018

Rule 5 Eligible: December, 2023


2022 Review:

Last year, Panacual pitched a total of 90.2 innings with 29.1 in Tampa and 61.1 with Hudson Valley. While he moved up to High-A, his yearly totals were in line with his career totals, which have been quite dismal with a WHIP higher than 1.5, a 4.9 BB/9, and only 7.9 K/9.

2023 Preview:

Josue Panacual will return to the Hudson Valley Renegades in 2023 in hopes that in his second full-time season, he'll have more all around success.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

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

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

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."
