Yankees Prospect Ranking

by James Vlietstra

The minor league baseball season is just about wrapping up for the year. After a slow start, several Yankees prospects have come on and have put together a very impressive season. There was a lot of turnover, but many of their top players excelled and were even promoted late in the season.

I put together a ranking several months ago that was well received, so I am doing it again. This list is purely objective. I give a point scale that goes to 80, based on six factors: Age, proximity to the majors, ceiling, position, pedigree, and this years production.

I will give a short demonstration on the point scale using recently prospect graduate Clarke Schmidt as the example.

Age 2/10

Proximity to the majors 10/10

Ceiling 14/20

Position 12/20

Pedigree 10/10

Last year’s production 8/10

Total is a 56 out of a possible 80. This would rank him in their top 10 prospects. Not bad for a former first round pick that has spent much of the season on the Major League roster.

So here are the Yankees top prospects going into the 2022-23 offseason:
