Note: This list is not about who are the better players or prospects, but rather who is doing the best and making the most of their opportunities.

Rank Name Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Luis Severino TRE His second start wasn't as great but he still has a sub-1.00 ERA, a sub-1.00 WHIP, and more K's than innings pitched 1
2 Rookie Davis TAM Has allowed 1 earned run through first three starts; his best 3-game stretch last season was allowing four earned runs 6
3 Eric Jagielo TRE Very quietly getting off to a terrific start; leads the farm system in runs [12] and RBI [11], and ranks second in total bases [28] and home runs [3] 17
4 Ramon Flores SWB His .271 average helps disguise his high .977 OPS so far; he has as many home runs [4] as the Tampa and Charleston teams combined! 5
5 Abiatal Avelino CHA Like Flores the lower batting average [.265] disguises an otherwise terrific start; he leads the farm system in doubles [6] and ranks second in stolen bases [12] and runs scored [10] NA
6 Brady Lail TRE Has allowed just two earned runs in first three starts in 2015 and has a 15:1 strikeout to walk ratio thus far 13
7 Chaz Hebert TAM Like Lail, he's already been promoted this season; has allowed just 3 earned runs in 3 starts and he ranks second in the farm system in K's [19] 4
8 matt snyder TAM Tied with Jagielo for farm system lead in RBI [11] and he ranks second with a .367 batting average thus far NR
9 Jordan Montgomery CHA ERA is a little high [3.52] but he leads the farm system in K's [24] and has an 8:1 strikeout to walk ratio 7
10 Mark Payton TAM Only trails Flores and Jagielo in total bases [25], and ties Avelino for second most runs scored [10] NR
11 Jorge Mateo CHA Leads the farm system in stolen bases [14] but that was a given from the get-go; hitting .281 with great line-drive percentage. 8
12 Conor Mullee TAM Has allowed one base hit total in seven shutout innings thus far; could probably handle a promotion at this point 14
13 Cale Coshow CHA He and Mullee are the only two relievers in the Yankee farm system to not allow a run in their first four appearances NR
14 Jonathan Holder TAM 'Sleeper' prospect keeps on trucking; struck out a season-high 7 batters in last outing and his 1.76 ERA is tied with Hebert for 4th best in the system among starters NA
15 Jake Cave TRE The power has come back to earth but he has still gotten on base 23 times in just 12 games so far 2
16 Chase Whitley SWB Has had two terrific starts and one merely average one but still ranks 6th in starter's ERA 19
17 Jose Ramirez SWB Has a sub-1.00 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a K per inning pitched; solid across the board NR
18 Mason Williams TRE Tied for 6th in hitting [.310] and ranks third in stolen bases [6], and his 8 RBI rank fourth in the farm system NR
19 Diego Moreno SWB At 27 years old he's not a real "prospect" but a 0.46 WHIP and 13.5 K's per 9 innings are pretty damn impressive 12
20 Ben Gamel SWB Leads the farm system in hitting [.375] and his .957 OPS only trails Flores on the Scranton team NR
