Yankees Prospect Ranking

by James Vlietstra

September 28, 2022


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:


Anthony Volpe


Jasson Dominguez

Oswald Peraza

If Cabrera is a "50," then the Yankees should dominate for the next decade. He's proved himself to be an honest-to-goodness major leaguer, and a potential All-Star. I have real questions about your metrics if you're grading him below six other prospects given how he's already performed in the Majors.

it's a little early for fully informed claims of possibly all-star futures for Cabrera.

he's looked good and as though he belongs in the major leagues

as a fine utility player

there is very little question concerning the widely-held opinion that the Yankees have a bunch of more talented prospects....

.... at least 4 of the 6 mentioned among them.

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."
