Yankees Prospect Power Rankings

In our third installment of the Power Rankings for the 2015 season, Eric Jagielo keeps moving up the rankings. Here are the top 20 performances by the Yankees' prospects in the long-season leagues.

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 Eric Jagielo TRE He's doing it all offensively, ranking first in total bases [39], home runs [4], RBI [14], and runs scored [17] 3
       
2 Abiatal Avelino CHA Tied for system lead in doubles [8], ranks second in runs [15] and stolen bases [14], and is batting .316 after 6 multi-hit games in last 9 games played 5
       
3 Ramon Flores SWB The model of consistency; his OPS hasn't been lower than .948 since the first few games and only trails Jagielo in total bases thus far 4
       
4 Chaz Hebert TAM Leads the farm system in starter ERA [1.33] and ranks third in K's [22]; tossed 5 innings of no-hit ball in his last outing 7
       
5 Rookie Davis TAM Like Hebert, Davis has been very consistent so far. His 1.66 ERA ranks second in the farm system and so do his 26 strikeouts 2
       
6 Ben Gamel SWB Has more extra-base hits [8] than strikeouts [7] and his system-leading .386 average has his stock soaring 20
       
7 Luis Severino TRE One so-so start helps disguise an otherwise strong start to the season. His 26 K's are tied for second and he's allowed one earned run or less in three of first four starts 1
       
8 Cale Coshow CHA Still hasn't given up a run yet and now leads the farm system in saves [5] 13
       
9 Jonathan Holder TAM Has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his first four starts and currently ranks third in starter's ERA [2.11] 14
       
10 Greg Bird TRE Lower .242 average disguises the fact he's among the runs scored [13], doubles [7], home runs [3], and walks [13] leaders in the farm system NR
       
11 Mark Payton TAM Quietly having a superb start; tied for farm system lead in runs scored [17] with Jagielo and leads Tampa in total bases [30]. 10
       
12 Jordan Montgomery CHA Not among the ERA leaders [3.80] but he leads the farm system in strikeouts [30] for a third straight week 9
       
13 Aaron Judge TRE Starting to heat up; has hit safely in 6 of last 7 games NR
       
14 Mason Williams TRE Gotten back to hit-first mentality and no longer obsessed with hitting for power, and the result is a top four batting average in the farm system [.323] 18
       
15 Slade Heathcott SWB Healthy and on fire lately, hitting safely in 7 of his last 8 games. His .342 average ranks 2nd in the farm system NR
       
16 Nick Goody TRE His 17 K's rank second among relievers [behind Bautista] but he's not giving up many base runners NR
       
17 Jorge Mateo CHA Leads the farm system in stolen bases [15] but the other numbers are lagging right now 11
       
18 Ericson Leonora TAM Tied for the farm system lead in doubles [8] and his current 9-game hit streak has him hitting .306 NR
       
19 matt snyder TAM His .313 average is among the top five in the system and he's tied for second in RBIs [13] 8
       
20 Diego Moreno SWB Continues to be one of the most effective relievers in the Yankee farm system [0.63 ERA and had 16 K's in 14.1 innings] 19
