Thread: 2017 end of season Yankee prospect update

  1. #46
    We dealt away Kaprielian, Clarkin and Littel during the season yet our pitching didn’t seem to suffer. We have an insane amount of arms.

    One guy I totally whiffed on in my rankings, btw, is Canaan Smith. Our 4th rounder out of HS this year had a very solid debut in the GCL. For an 18 yr old, he showed power and patience that usually comes with a bit more age.

    57 games
    .289/.430/.422 with 5HR and 5SB. He’s a good athlete with big power projection and a sweet lefty swing. He walked more than he struck out as well. With our system lacking a bit of position player depth in the lower levels, he should be able to pop quickly if he continues hitting.

    Rookie Advanced league
    6. Deivi Garcia
    15. Luis Medina

    Flabbergasted that Dermis Garcia missed the list. Absolutely flabbergasted
    The rebuild is complete.

    Great to see some guys which are out of the radar, it only shows how strong our system is

    No Cannan Smith?

    Helium alert in the AFL.

    Albert Abreu and Justus Sheffield are dominating the AFL, a classic hitters league. Sheffield's stuff is playing up per Law and others. Fastball topping out in the high 90s, slider looking plus and a change that has gotten refined. He is looking like a top of the rotation starter

    Abreu is showing high 90s heat as well with a power curve. His delivery has been a little erratic, but he is absolutely dominating hitters there.

    Cody Carroll has yet to allow a run in 3 appearances, striking out 6 in 4 innings (walked 3, though).

    Estevan Florial has shown his talents in limited action (7 for 18) but has also shown he needs to work on pitch recognition. He showed true 70 speed as well as an uncanny ability to crush fastballs.
    The rebuild is complete.

    Future is bright my friend!!!

    I'm really excited about Florial, if he's able to fix his swing, he will be aforce

    There isn't anything to "fix" per se. He is 19 years old facing guys 3-4 years his senior. He has a pitch recognition issue that should improve with time. Either we will see more walks or less strikeouts, and I will take either
    The rebuild is complete.

    Florial and Estrada are hitting the cover off the ball in the AFL. Holder is hitting well also and McKinney leads his team in RBI. Abreu and Sheffield are dominating on the mound and Carroll has allowed 2 hits in 7IP and functioning as the teams closer. The only Yankee AFL prospect who is getting lit up is Schwaab,

  9. #54
    3 of our 4 pitchers are really lighting up the AFL.

    Cody Carroll still hasn’t allowed a run. He’s functioning as the club’s closer. He’s gone 9 scoreless innings with 2 hits, 4 walks and 14K

    Albert Abreu has been completely dominant in a hitters league. 4 starts, 19IP (starters don’t got more than 5IP or 80 pitches). 2.37ERA, 20K, 1.05WHIP

    Sheffield has been even better. 19IP 21K 0.79WHIP 2.37ERA and is showing high 90s heat and a hammer breaking ball. The arrow is pointing straight up for him

    Scout.com came out with their top 50. Their rankings are intriguing for sure. Pat Teale usually has guys with similar upside but closer proximity higher on his list, but he loves Guzman. He’s got him all the way up to #4. Acevedo down to #12, although not really a fault of his own.

  11. #56
    Yankees sent 8 guys to the AFL. 5 ended up in the leagues top 25. (Florial, Sheffield, Abreu, Estrada and Carroll).
    The rebuild is complete.

    SYSTEM OVERVIEW

    Strengths: Undoubtedly, the Yankees' system's biggest strength in its pitching. That's particularly true when it comes to hard-throwing righthanders. Six of their Top 10 are pitchers, and five of those are power righthanders. Four of those five touched 100 mph or better. And they're all behind Justus Sheffield, who touched 98 mph from the left side in the Arizona Fall League.

    Weaknesses: Although the system is one of the deepest in the game, there's virtually no catching prospects on the rise. The best option is Kyle Higashioka, who had a breakout year in 2016 and made his major league debut, but missed most of 2017 recovering from injuries. The next catching prospects—Jason Lopez and Saul Torres—played at short-season Staten Island and Rookie-level Pulaski, respectively.

    We may have graduated Frazier and Wade, but they should be added back in as they’re both likely to start 18 in AAA

    Yankees used the Ohtani money nabbing Outfielder Raimfer Salinas and catcher Antonio Cabello. They’re the #11 and #15 prospects from the 2017 class giving NYY 5 of the top 20.

    Scouting grades: Hit: 60 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 50
    For now, Salinas might be best known for his bat, but the rest of his tools are not far behind. In fact, there's a belief the young outfielder has the potential to be a legitimate five-tool player and an impact player in the near future.

    For starters, scouts like Salinas' body frame and its potential. He's also a sound defender and his plus arm is already an asset. Salinas is already a decent runner, whether it's on the basepaths or roaming the outfield, and there's a belief he will get faster.

    At the plate, Salinas has shown an advanced approach and good bat speed. He's been able to hit to all fields while also showing some home run power. Salinas' overall tools package could land him in the middle of the lineup one day as a possible run producer. Scouts like his makeup and his overall confidence in his abilities.
    Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 55 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50
    Cabello could be the most athletic prospect on the international market this year.

    The teenager is known primarily as a catcher, but Cabello could also play second base and center field. He has a strong body and has been clocked at 6.45 seconds in the 60-yard dash. Cabello also hits in games and his makeup is considered off of the charts. He has built a reputation as a tough and hard-nosed competitor who hates to lose.

    Fellow Venezuelan catcher prospect Daniel Flores might be a better defender, but Cabello has also earned praise as a good receiver with solid catching and throwing abilities. Cabello has been praised for his ability to block balls and a quick release that gives him a chance to throw out even the best of potential basestealers.

    Cabello is still working on fine-tuning his overall offensive game, and like most prospects his age, he is working on his approach against secondary and offspeed pitches.

    Yankees place 6 in the top 100 on BA. I anticipate Medina will end up on the top 100 by mid season.
    The rebuild is complete.
