Quick hit: Two Yankees on Baseball America’s Top Prospects List

Baseball America published their list of the top 100 prospects in baseball last night.

The top three prospects are Twins OF Byron Buxton, Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts and Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras. Buxton has topped every prospects list so far this year.

As for the Yankees, RHP Masahiro Tanaka (Yes, that Masahiro Tanaka) comes in at #4 and C Gary Sanchez is #35. Tanaka is included because he’s considered a rookie even though he has years of service in Japan and Baseball America recognizes him as such.

Mason Williams, Tyler Austin and Slade Heathcott, who were all on the 2013 list, did not make it this year.
