Rank Player Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Jorge Mateo TAM

Tossed seven more scoreless innings in his last start; still hasn't given up a run yet

2 Aaron Judge SWB This monster had a huge week too, clubbing four home runs, driving in seven, and walking four times; now leads the farm in dingers [7] 16
3 Gary Sanchez SWB Top prospect had a huge week too; hit .429 with three doubles and three home runs 19
4 Jake Cave TRE Four more doubles this past week puts him second in the farm [behind Sanchez] with eight; ranks in top ten in nearly every category 14
5 Chad Green SWB Leads farm system in ERA [1.24] and ranks third in strikeouts [36] 16
6 Dietrich Enns TRE Finally gave up an earned run [four actually] this season in his last start; still ranks second in ERA [1.26] 2
7 Miguel Andujar TAM Ranks fifth in total bases behind the four hitters ranked higher here; leads farm in RBIs [22] and tied for second in home runs 17
8 Brody Koerner TAM Has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his first five starts; ranks third in ERA 10
9 Billy Flemming TAM The bat had to cool off sometime; not just hitting for average either though, he's among the doubles [7] and RBI [17] leaders 5
10 Matt Wotherspoon SWB Off to amazing start; has allowed just 6 hits in 21.2 innings and struck out better than a batter per inning NR
11 Caleb Frare TAM The walks are high but he still hasn't given up an earned run yet and batters are hitting just .100 against him NR
12 Domingo Acevedo CHA Ranks fifth in ERA [2.43] and second in strikeouts [37]; he's been one of the most consistent starters down on the farm so far 12
13 Jonathan Holder TRE Gave up earned runs in consecutive appearances for the first time this season last week but still has a sub-1.00 WHIP and a lot of strikeouts 3
14 Ronald Herrera TRE Been as solid as they come in Double-A; last start wasn't great but he pitched out of trouble 11
15 Giovanny Gallegos TRE The Herrera of relievers; he's been remarkably consistent from day one 15
16 Conor Mullee SWB See Gallegos above 9
17 Mark Payton TAM Like Cave he's among the top ten in nearly every offensive category 7
18 Zach Zehner TAM Ranks second in the farm in hitting [.347] and yet somehow inexplicably has just 3 RBIs despite hitting in terrific Tampa lineup 6
19 Josh Rogers TAM Had his first bad start the last time out; still ranks fourth in ERA [2.41] and fourth in strikeouts [34] 4
20 Jordan Montgomery TRE He's been solid all season but now he's starting to strike out batters too NR

Others considered for the Top 20: Tyler Austin, Daniel Camarena, Travis Hissong, Michael O'Neill, Hoy Jun Park, and Tyler Wade.
