    A lot to like about Rizzo, particularly his glove. However he is 32, which imo is a consideration when discussing the term.

    Welcome to the Yankees Prospect Report!

    First up, Anthony Garcia, 21 year old Yankees prospect and one of the most powerful hitters in all of MILB.

    video here: https://twitter.com/i/status/1452466772419006469
    It's strange how he didn't even make the yankees top 30 prospects. If he continues hitting like this next year, he's going to skyrocket up prospect lists.

    These are all the players that will be eligible.

    Deivi
    Ridings
    Clarke
    Gil
    Florial
    Medina
    Gomez
    Sands
    Cabrera
    Breux
    Pereira
    Lockridge

    I read on pinstripealley that the last 2 players are also eligible for the rule 5. I don't see how but i listed them anyway. Even without them there's still 10 other players on that list. How do they protect that many players while keeping nearly everyone on their current roster? We know Cashman hates letting go of players on his 26 man roster.

    If I am not mistaken, Garcia, Gil, Medina, Schmidt, Yoendrys Gomez, Peraza and Florial are on the 40 man so they are safe.
    (I believe that if you are on the 40 man, you are protected)

    That leaves,
    Ridings
    Sands
    Cabrera
    Breux
    Pereira
    Lockridge

    I will be shocked if they don't make room for Cabrera, Periera, Sands

    Leutge and Kluber clear space. I could see them moving Peralta or Rodrguez to make another spot.
    Brantley should be gone.
    Odor should be gone but that contract could be tough to move. It has a buyout next year but it's 12 on the books this year. I believe most of that is being paid for by Texas but IMO it's a waste of roster space.

    I think they make an effort room for all those guys except, Ridings, Lockridge and Breaux. There may end up being room for them but I would guess those would be the 3 to be the last on list.

    You know, i always thought players could come off and on the 40 man every year, but if what i'm reading is correct, they need to be DFA'd if a team did that.

    Pretty sure the yankees are going to buy out Odor's contract, which would effectively end his baseball career. I don't see any team picking him up under any circumstances. As for Ridings, lockridge and Breaux, I don't think the yankees can afford to lose these players over the rule 5. That would be very dumb. I think we can see huge years out of at least 2 of those 3, if not all 3. Not to mention, both lockridge and breaux field integral positions making them a lot more valuable. And the yankees could potentially use someone like Ridings as a future setup man or closer. I wouldn't sacrifice any of them even though they're not as valuable as a Volpe, Dominguez or Peraza.

    If they could, in an ideal world, the Yankees should sign Seager and trade with the A's for Olsen and Manaea immediately to get the best deal possible before MLB puts a moratorium on transactions, during a lockout. It is only a couple of weeks between the World Series and the expiration of the CBA, so it is probably not possible. However, if they could, the A's might be more flexible dumping the salary facing the uncertainty.

    I'm sure it would never happen until the new CBA is signed.

    Thus far, the Arizona Fall League has proven to be extremely hitter-friendly, with a league composite ERA over 6.00. The squad that has all the Yankees prospects (Surprise) has a league-leading 4.29 team ERA. In 2019, every team in the league had an ERA under that, with five of the six teams compiling an ERA under 4.00. There is a team in 2021 (Mesa) with 100 runs scored in only 12 games.

    How are the Yankees’ prospects doing in this environment?

    Here are some of the numbers, with Rule 5 eligibility noted. In case you are wondering, Surprise is currently 9-3 and in first place in their division.

    1B/3B Andres Chaparro (Eligible): .208/.345/.375 (5-for-24; 1 double, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 4 RS, 4 BB, 5 K) -> This is a decision that the Yankees will need to make this winter. Personally, I don’t know how they get him on the 40-man roster, though I would like to see them try. However, the Yankees did place him here to get a closer look (with the added benefit of scouts from other organizations getting a look). With all the “noise” in the system this season, Chaparro’s .267/.381/.468 line between Tampa/Hudson Valley was easy to overlook. Unlike many other prospects, his BB% went up upon leaving the automated strike zone league.
    OF Elijah Dunham (Not Eligible): .344/.475/.625 (11-for-32; 1 double, 1 triple, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 7 RS, 7 BB, 2 K, 6-for-6 SB) -> Dunham could get to MLB quickly. He should be handed a chance to clear the Double-A hurdle in 2022.
    C Austin Wells (Not Eligible): .357/.471/.643 (10-for-28; 3 doubles, 1 triple, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 6 R, 6 BB, 8 K) -> Whether he stays at catcher or not, the bat should play at the higher levels and (eventually) MLB.

    Former Yankees farmhand Ezequiel Duran is playing on the same squad. He is 13-for-28 with four doubles and four triples. The league is very much insane.

    On the hill:

    RHP Zach Greene (Not Eligible): 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K -> He didn’t get the “pitchers are not allowed to pitch well in Arizona” memo. Greene was very good in the minors this season. The fact that he isn’t eligible for the Rule 5 for another year is helpful, as many of their advanced relief prospects are eligible this winter.
    RHP Tanner Myatt (Eligible): 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 4 K -> The big kid with the golden arm didn’t pitch much in 2021. Control issues have followed him around. I doubt he will be protected.
    RHP Harold Cortijo (Eligible): 4 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 6 BB, 2 K -> The Yankees won’t be protecting Cortijo, who tossed a total of 10.1 innings in A-ball this season.
    LHP Clay Aguilar (Not Eligible): 3 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 0 K – Aguilar was a dominant force in 52 innings down in Tampa/Hudson Valley this season. He posted a 71/11 K/BB ratio to go along with his 1.90 ERA. His eligibility is far in the future (2024).
    RHP Blane Abeyta (Not Eligible): 2.1 IP, 3 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K

    Yankees prospects are turning heads in the Arizona Fall League
    The Yankees outfield prospect is among the top offensive performers so far in the 2021 AFL.

    BA updated their top 10 list...
    Anthony Volpe, SS
    Oswald Peraza, SS
    Jasson Dominguez, OF
    Luis Gil, RHP
    Austin Wells, C
    Hayden Wesneski, RHP
    Trey Sweeney, SS
    Oswaldo Cabrera, 2B/3B
    Luis Medina, RHP
    Ken Waldichuk, LHP

    Peraza jumping Dominguez is a big deal, that should put him in the 30-40 range.

    What a jump by Wesneski, i didn't see alot of him down the stretch but it must have been beyond impressive.

    Waldi deserves to be higher, i still believe he's probably our best pitching spec.

    Peirera being left off is a joke, he should be a top 5 guy

    I can see why Peraza and volpe are both ahead of Dominguez . They are the closest on that list to being part of the main roster full time . Atkeast when it comes to position players

    https://www.milb.com/somerset/video/...t-for-patriots He's got an odd arm motion but the stuff looks really, really good. He's been in the upper 90's with his FB and that SL is filthy
