Rank Player Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Kyle Higashioka TRE

His unbelievable season continues, launching two more home runs in his last two games and is now tied with Judge for the system lead in homers

2 Chance Adams TRE He started off the season slow but he's been the best pitcher over the past month, following up his six no-hit innings with six shutout innings of one-hit ball in his last outing 4
3 Dietrich Enns SWB It has gotten to the point where if Enns gives up any runs and still has a quality start it is somewhat disappointing, and that's not fair 1
4 Tyler Austin SWB Might be the hottest hitter in the system right now; has a .378 average and four home runs in his last ten games played with 11 RBIs 5
5 Nestor Cortes CHA An online petition calling for his promotion needs to be started as his low-A dominance is rather ridiculous; enough said! 6
6 Miguel Andujar TRE Not all that hot right now [.237 in his last 10 games] but he ranks in the top five in hitting, doubles, home runs, total base, runs, RBI, etc 7
7 Aaron Judge SWB Currently on the DL but still ranks among the tops in home runs, RBI, and walks 2
8 Jake Cave SWB Like Andujar he hasn't been exactly hot lately but he's holding his own. Tied for fourth in total bases [148] 8
9 Yefrey Ramirez TAM Underrated season continues, allowing just two earned runs in seven innings in his last start, giving him quality starts in six of his last eight games 11
10 Jordan Montgomery TRE Struck out ten in his last outing but gave up four earned runs for just the second time in his last ten starts 9
11 Domingo Acevedo TAM Like Montgomery, he struck out his fair share [9] in his last game but gave uncharacteristically gave up four earned runs 10
12 Chris Gittens CHA One of the guys in the lower-half of these rankings playing above his overall production lately; he's hitting .316 in his last ten games 13
13 Ben Gamel SWB He's still blistering hot at the plate, hitting .340 in his last ten games in safely in nine of his last ten overall 14
14 Jose Campos TRE Lately he's been a little more miss than hit for his standards but overall he's been solid; has a 3.00 ERA in his last ten starts 12
15 Daniel Camarena TRE Tossed five shutout innings in his last start but like Campos the consistency hasn't been quite there like it was earlier in the year 15
16 Josh Rogers TAM Another six shutout innings in his last start; he could use another promotion but there's no room in Double-A yet 16
17 Tyler Wade TRE The on-base speedster does what he does, gets on base and scores runs; he leads the farm in runs [64] and ranks second in walks [49], one behind Austin 17
18 James Reeves TAM His blistering run lately is rather incredible; had seven more shutout innings of two-hit ball in his last start 20
19 Jorge Mateo TAM Back from two-week suspension and homered in his first game back; don't be surprised if he rockets up the rankings in the second-half 18
20 Dustin Fowler TRE He's been a compiler in 2016; his OPS [,704] doesn't rank anywhere near the top 10 but yet he ranks fifth in total bases [148] 19

Others considered for the Top 20: Abiatal Avelino, Billy Fleming, Thairo Estrada, Giovanny Gallegos, Ronald Herrera, Jonathan Holder, Christian Morris, Hoy Jun Park, Mark Payton, Gary Sanchez, Donovan Solano, Daris Vargas, and Zach Zehner.
