Three Yankee prospects break BA’s Top 10 SAL Prospects list

Williams was praised for his tools, but BA seemed particularly dissuaded by the young outfielder’s actions. They note that he apparently “caused a few headaches” for the RiverDogs’ staff and included a quote from an unnamed scout saying, “He’s got the tools, but he needs to be humbled.” I never saw any specifics regarding this, so I hope that this is more of an instance of a young guy who has yet to really be challenged feeling cocky.

Sanchez made this list last season, coming in fourteenth, so the young backstop made some good improvements, coming in fifth this year. BA continues to tout Sanchez’s great bat, his ability to use the whole field and hit for power. They note that he has made defensive improvements, but doubt his ability to stick at catcher. Sanchez also seems to take a hit for his apparent “lackluster” work ethic.
