Prospect ranking season isn’t quite over yet. John Sickels released the 2015 edition of his top 20 Yankees prospect rankings earlier today over at Minor League Ball, and I have to say I think it’s quite good.
It’s got all the usual suspects at or near the spots they’ve held on most of the other notable lists. Luis Severino gets the #1 spot over Aaron Judge here, Jacob Lindgren is up at 6, Miguel Andujar at 9, and the older contingent of guys like Tyler Austin, Jose Ramirez, and Bryan Mitchell are still regarded as valuable as 11-15 players.
The biggest surprise on Sickels’ list might be Angel Aguilar coming in 17th. That’s the highest I can remember seeing him on any list other than EJ’s, so maybe Aguilar is somebody I need to start paying closer attention to this year.
The whole list is free and comes with little write-ups on each player, so it’s definitely worth checking out.…
