    The folks at @MLBPipeline believe these six #Yankees prospects are "no-brainers" to protect in advance of the Rule 5 Draft:

    Deivi Garcia, RHP
    Estevan Florial, OF
    Luis Gil, RHP
    Nick Nelson, RHP
    Luis Medina, RHP
    Miguel Yajure, RHP

    They don't have 6 spots though. I'll be interested to see what kind of maneuvering occurs over the next month.


    Derek Jeter is a lucky man.

    Yep. Yanks have tough decisions to make. They have four open spots on the 40-man. That said, there’s always the possibility that the Yankees swing a minor trade in order to create space.

    Those guys are all top ten Yankee specs and with the 26th man being added there is a far greater chance that teams will take a chance on stashing a high ceiling arm for a yr. We d hate to have another Jose Quintana debacle again.

    You have to figure guys like Bird, Adam's, Tarpley
    Cortes, Heller or Holder could become 40man casualties. I'd actually be very surprised if Bird was still on the 40 man. Maybe the cut him and resign him to a MILB contract

    Those 6 specs have way to high of a ceiling to leave them unprotected IMO

    Another Dominguez article with now not future grades.

    I had read he was fast before but didn't realize he was on par with the fastest in baseball. Billy Hamilton runs a 6.2 60 which is regarded as the fastest in baseball. Dominguez runs a 6.3 60..wow he could end up being a 40hr 40SB guy

    I'm excited but he's got to keep his head on and keep healthy. He's a long way away.



    **** off. Where's my title

    Switch hitting power and speed combo is Mickey Mantle like. Imagine if Mickey never hurt his knee on the storm drain in his first season.

    Yes indeed. I made a similar comment in regards to Mick in another thread. Some suggest he played his entire career with a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus. Back then, knee surgery was not what it is today. An argument can be made that he played the remaining 17 years of his career with a torn/semi-repaired acl and mcl.

    Deivi Garcia had a 12.68 K/9 in 93.2 IP at AA/AAA last year.

    He was the only pitcher in the upper levels (AA/AAA) with 90+ IP and 12+ K/9.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    He only played well because they rested him to keep him fresh. Mick insisted on load management.

    For anyone who cares. The Yankees are linked to the top IFA in 2021. A SS Roderick Arias. Hes said to be a monster defensively and can spray the ball everywhere. He was supposedly so good at 12 they had him play against the 16 year olds and he was barrelling up 90 miles per hour.
