Yankees Prospect Power Rankings

Here are the top 20 performances by the Yankees' prospects in the long-season leagues. This is our first installment of the Power Rankings for the 2010 season.

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. Players with big league service time are not eligible.

Rank Name Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Austin Romine TRE Third in batting average; tied for third in doubles; tied for third in home runs, and he's walking more NA
       
2 Graham Stoneburner CHA Nearly a 5 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio thus far and hitters are batting just .191 against him NA
       
3 David Adams TRE Leads farm system in doubles and runs, fifth in hitting with .321 average, and he's batting .360 with RISP NA
       
4 Kelvin Perez CHA His 1.07 ERA leads all Yankees starting pitchers and he's holding opposing batters to a .184 average NA

10 Adam Warren TAM Quietly is second in wins, third in ERA, and has a 1.08 WHP. He's proving last year was no fluke NA
       
11 Jose Ramirez CHA More strikeouts than innings pitched and has a solid 1.11 WHIP. Last start skews otherwise great numbers. NA
       
12 Kevin Russo SWB Sixth in batting, tied for third in runs scored, and he continues to contribute in all categories NA

14 Jack Rye TAM Making most of his opportunities, he leads the farm system with a .397 average and has more walks than strikeouts NA
       
15 Deangelo Mack CHA The average isn't there, but his 17 walks leads the farm system and he's fourth in RBI NA
       
16 Ivan Nova SWB Sixth in ERA, fourth in strikeouts, hasn't lost, and has solid numbers across the board NA

19 Grant Duff TRE Striking out better than 14 batters per 9 innings and he's kept his walks relatively in-check NA
       
20 Pat Venditte TAM Like Duff, Venditte has 23 K's out of the closer's role.  It might be time to test him in Double-A NA
