The Yankees have landed six players in Baseball America’s Gulf Coast League Top 20 prospects list. They are doing it for all 16 leagues and we’ll find out when Friday’s New York-Penn League list is released if any of the Staten Island Yankees have made it.
The six players in the GCL Top 20 are:
- #10 C Luis Torrens –Torrens only hit .241/.348/.299 but he’s also only 17 and scouts like his approach at the plate.

- #13 SS Abi Avelino – He hit .400/.481/.586 in the GCL but when he was moved up to Staten Island he didn’t fare as well.
