Yankees Prospect Power Rankings

In our fifth installment of the Power Rankings for the 2015 season, both Aaron Judge and Eric Jagielo [in the photo above] continue to lead the way at the top. 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 Aaron Judge TRE Has a current 13-game hit streak going and still leads the farm system in total bases [72] 1
2 Eric Jagielo TRE Two more 3-hit games this past week with three more extra-base hits; only trails Judge in total bases [66], and leads the farm in runs [25], RBI [22], and doubles [12] 2
3 Matt Snyder TAM On the DL again but still leads the farm system in hitting [.360] and is tied for second in RBI [20], and got promoted to Double-A 3
4 Abiatal Avelino TAM Running a little hot and cold in Tampa, but still among the system leaders in doubles [9], stolen bases [19], and run scored 4
5 Miguel Andujar TAM Scorching week [4 HRs, 10 RBIs] has him finally debuting in the rankings; he was quietly among the total base leaders even before the monstrous week NR
6 Tyler Wade TAM He may not hit home runs but he's a leader in nearly every other category, including ranking second in hitting [.333] and runs scored [24], and third in stolen bases [11] 16
7 Jordan Montgomery TAM Left his last start after one inning and went on the DL but still ranks 2nd in strikeouts and 2nd in starter ERA [2.86] 6
8 Jorge Mateo CHA Hitting a solid .287 after having his 9-game hit streak snapped and his 27 stolen bases leads all of baseball [he has more stolen bases than strikeouts] 15
9 Slade Heatchott SWB Contributing in nearly every category and he's been the model of consistency so far in 2015 9
10 Nick Goody TRE Hasn't allowed a run in nearly a month! And he's walked more than one batter in just one outing this season. 12
11 Ben Gamel SWB Like Heathcott he's been the model of consistency this season; ranks second in Scranton in OPS. 8
12 Kyle Roller SWB Quietly having another superb season; leads Scranton in OPS and total bases, leads the farm system in walks [21], and ranks second in home runs [5] NR
13 Ramon Flores SWB Has cooled off power-wise but he's still getting on base consistently; had eight hits and five walks in the past week 14
14 Rookie Davis TAM Cooling off lately; has allowed five earned runs in two of his last three starts but still leads the farm system in strikeouts [36] 7
15 Johnny Barbato TRE Overshadowed by Goody in his own bullpen but he too has a sub-1.00 ERA and more K's than innings pitched NR
16 Luis Severino TRE Another hurler on the shelf; perhaps his blisters were the cause for his lackluster last start [2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER] 5
17 Mason Williams TRE He hasn't been dynamic but he's been the epitome of steady in 2015 17
18 Dustin Fowler CHA Like Williams, Fowler has been chipping in on a daily basis 13
19 Mark Payton TAM See Williams and Fowler 19
20 Jonathan Holder TAM One clunker start early this past week disguises an otherwise stellar first full season; has allowed two earned runs or less in six of seven starts 10
