The big dogs of the baseball scouting world are releasing their annual top MLB prospects lists and so far it's been a disappointing showing for the Yankees. On Friday, they landed 2 on MLB.com's Top 100 for 2014. Gary Sanchez was ranked 47th after being 27th on the 2013 list, and Mason Williams was ranked 75th after being 37th the previous year.
Today it's Baseball Prospectus unveiling their Top 101 for 2014 and the Yankee representation is even slimmer. Just 1, Sanchez, coming in 85th. Regardless of how you feel about the Yankee system or prospects in general, that's not good. It speaks both to the lack of top tier talent currently in the Yankee system and the generally "blah" year that most of their top guys had. The good news? They still have a bunch of players with top 100 upside. Just need them to start playing like it.
