There’s another top 100 prospects list out, and the Yankees did a little better on this one. Scout.com posted their top 100 yesterday afternoon, and while the Yanks did not put anybody in their top 50, they did have 3 representatives in the 51-100 section. Luis Severino was 51st, Aaron Judge was 57th, and Greg Bird was 96th.
Severino’s inclusion and team-high ranking on this list goes to show how widely spread the opinions on him are, and once again exemplifies the high level of subjectivity and personal bias that goes into each and every one of these rankings. Everybody has their own thoughts, their own criteria, and that’s what makes this type of stuff fun and interesting to follow if nothing else.
