Prospect season is all but over now the start of the regular season is approaching and teams are starting to make their first spring roster cuts. MLB.com gave us one last list to look over yesterday when they released their top 20 Yankee prospects list for 2014.
The list is predictable headlined by Gary Sanchez, who MLB.com rated as a 60 (out of 80) prospect overall. The rest of the top 5 is, in order: Mason Williams, Slade Heathcott, J.R. Murphy, and Eric Jagielo. The only "surprise" is Luis Severino at 10, which isn't much of one given what he's done since coming stateside, and the second half of the top 20 featured fellow young'ns Gosuke Katoh, Luis Torrens, Abiatal Avelino, and Miguel Andujar.
If you've got the time, definitely check this list out in greater detail. It's got stats, write-ups, and individual tool grades for each player and it's all free.
P.S.- Check out the AB4AR Top 30 too.
