The Complete 2013-2014 AB4AR Top 30

(Courtesy of the AP)

It's Sunday, which means it's the end of Prospect Week 2014.  I didn't get to quite as many tools rankings as I wanted to, but the most important part of the week, the 2013-2014 AB4AR Top 30, was covered in full.  As I mentioned earlier, this year's list had a high amount of turnover, almost half of last year's Top 30 was replaced by new guys.  On the one hand, that may say something about the Yankees' inability to develop the talent they draft.  On the other, it may mean a turnaround of that trend is on the horizon with a big influx of new, young talent.  If you missed any of this week's Top 30 portions, or if you just want to peruse through them again, here's your chance.  From 30-1, the entire 2013-2014 AB4AR Top 30:

30) Shane Greene
29) Rob Refsnyder
28) Ben Gamel
27) Jordan Cote
26) Miguel Andujar
25) Angelo Gumbs
24) Bryan Mitchell
23) Vidal Nuno
22) Luis Torrens
21) Abi Avelino

Write-ups on Positions 30-21

20) Gosuke Katoh
19) Ramon Flores
18) Zoilo Almonte
17) Mark Montgomery
16) Luis Severino
15) Ty Hensley
14) Greg Bird
13) Nik Turley
12) Jose Ramirez
11) Aaron Judge

Write-ups on Positions 20-11

10) Jose Campos
9) Ian Clarkin
8) Manny Banuelos
7) Eric Jagielo
6) Rafael DePaula
5) Mason Williams
4) Slade Heathcott
3) Tyler Austin

1) Gary Sanchez

Write-ups on Positions 10-1

That's it for this year.  Time to start the countdown towards next January and the 4th edition...

Question about Refsnyder. In the write up on him, you said he was in line for a mid-season call up to Trenton. Any reason why, after 400+ AB and a .280/.400/.400 slash line he wouldnt start out 2014 in Trenton? Just asking.

That's a good point. Now that I think about it, it would make sense to start Refsynder in Trenton, Gumbs in Tampa, and maybe Katoh in Charleston if the Yanks want to get aggressive with him.
