1 Eric Jagielo TRE Leads the farm system in home runs [7], RBIs [25], and doubles [12], and ranks second in total bases [74] and runs scored [28] 2
2 Aaron Judge TRE Flip a coin with he and Jagielo for the top performer so far in 2015; leads the farm system in total bases [75] and is the top five in a few categories 1

4 Abiatal Avelino TAM Holding steady with consistent play; ranks first in runs scored [29], second in stolen bases [23], and third in doubles [9] 4
5 Jordan Montgomery CHA Most consistent starting pitcher in the farm system this season; leads the farm in strikeouts [42] and ranks third in ERA [2.76] 7
6 Ben Gamel SWB Like Wade he isn't a power hitter but he's contributing everywhere else, including leading all active hitters in the farm with a .333 average 11
7 Kyle Roller SWB His pedestrian .266 average disguises an otherwise fantastic season; leads Scranton in total bases [63] and the farm system in home runs [7] and walks [24] 12
8 Luis Severino TRE Back from his DL stint and tossed five no-hit innings in his return; ranks second in strikeouts [39] and sixth in ERA [3.27] 16
9 Miguel Andujar TAM Cooled off from his monster week the week prior; still leads Tampa in total bases [63] and ranks second in the system in RBIs [24] 5
10 Jorge Mateo CHA Like Andujar, the batting average isn't great but still standing out among his peers; leads the farm system with 29 stolen bases. 8
11 Rob Refsnyder SWB Starting to heat up; now co-leads Scranton in total bases [63], co-leads the farm system in doubles [12], and ranks fifth among active hitters in average [.308] after a slow start NR
12 Ramon Flores SWB The power production has quieted down but he's still hitting consistently; had three more multi-hit games this past week 13
13 Mason Williams SWB Got promoted to Triple-A on the strength of walking more than striking out, and ranking fourth in hitting with a .312 average 17
14 Cale Coshow TAM Sub-1.00 ERA, a sub-1.00 WHIP, and more K's than innings pitched all spell 'breakout' season so far NR
15 Nick Goody TRE Had his 11-game scoreless streak snapped but has still been incredibly productive in 2015 10
16 Jonathan Holder TAM Might be ready for Double-A already; has allowed two earned runs or less in seven of his first eight starts 20
17 Miguel Sulbaran TRE Even if the peripherals aren't great, he leads the farm system in wins [4] and ERA [2.45] so far NR
18 Jake Cave TRE Ranks third in walks [20] and cracked the top ten in hitting again NR
19 Dustin Fowler CHA Leads Charleston in total bases [58], runs scored [18], and RBIs [18] 18
