New York Yankees Top 30 Prospects 2023 Preseason

April 1, 2023

The New York Yankees are perpetual contenders in the American League East, but one of the biggest reasons they haven’t dominated the last 15 years like they did the previous 15 is the farm system.

In combination, the Yankees haven’t developed their own impact big leaguers often enough, and others in the division have, namely the Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays, with the Baltimore Orioles en route.

The Yankees, however, have an opportunity to get back to their modern roots when their homegrown talent led the franchise to four titles in five seasons from 1996-2000.

*Ages as of July 1, 2023

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
1 22 Anthony Volpe SS 60

Led by a an above average hit tool and a chance at 20 homers, not to mention a premium glove. Volpe brings All-Star upside to the majors as early as 2023.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
2 23 Oswald Peraza SS 55

Peraza should hit and offer double-digit home run power to go with plus speed and above-average defense on the dirt.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
3 20 Jasson Dominguez OF 55

Dominguez’s physical tools stand out, leading to at least plus raw power and potential impact defense in the outfield.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
4 22 Spencer Jones OF 50

Jones has mammoth raw power and if he can get to it he has a chance to be an everyday corner-outfield bat.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
5 23 Trey Sweeney SS 50

The left-handed hitting shortstop carries the tools for above-average power and a chance to produce average or better on-base marks into the upper minors in 2023.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
6 22 Austin Wells C 50

Wells, 23, produced in a 55-game sample at Double-A a year ago and could threaten the big leagues late in 2023.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
7 22 Everson Pereira OF 50

Pereira started to tap into his raw power the last two years and the tools suggest more in the tank as he approaches the big leagues.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
8 24 Randy Vasquez RHP 45

Armed with a plus curveball, Vasquez needs to find more success versus left-handed bats, perhaps a task for a cutter or an improved changeup.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
9 25 Luis Gil RHP 45

Gil debuted in 2021, showing promising stuff (FB-SL-CH) led by a big-time velocity and fastball metrics, but needs to throw more strikes to stay in the rotation.

RANK AGE PLAYER POS OFP
10 22 Drew Thorpe RHP 40

Thorpe, 22, doesn’t throw hard (88-93 mph), but his slider and changeup both are major-league quality and compliment his sinking fastball.
