Yankees Top Prospect Watch: Estevan Florial stuck in a slump, Deivi Garcia solid in Triple-A

Albert Abreu and Clarke Schmidt also had stellar outings on the hill

Estevan Florial, OF, High-A Tampa (No. 1, MLB No. 46) -- ETA 2021

Florial is mired in a slump, which has him hitting .176 (6-for-34) over his last 10 games. During the stretch, Florial has struck out 12 times and has failed to draw a walk, bringing his ratio of strikeouts to walks for the season to 56:10. As a result, Florial has generated a disappointing .619 OPS.

Deivi Garcia, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 4) -- ETA 2020

After winning his first start with the RailRiders, Garcia followed it up with a short effort lasting just three innsings due to command issues. Garcia walked four batters and allowed three hits, but limited Louisville to one run over three innings. Garcia is pitching at his third level of the season, and there remains an outside chance that he could see time in the big leagues before the season is out.

Albert Abreu, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 4) -- ETA 2020

Abreu got the win in his start Tuesday, tossing seven innings of two-run ball. Abreu scattered eight hits and walked a batter, while striking out seven. The 23-year-old owns a 3.72 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 82 1/3 innings for the Thunder this season.

Clarke Schmidt, RHP, High-A Tampa (No. 5) -- ETA 2020

Despite allowing just one unearned run, Schmidt took the loss in his second start back with Tampa since completing a three-game rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League. In the start, Clarke filled the strike zone, throwing 40 of his 54 pitches for strikes, while allowing just three batters to reach base. In 42 innings with Tampa, the Yankees first round pick from the 2017 draft, owns a solid 3.21 ERA with 45 strikeouts.

Anthony Seigler, C, Low-A Charleston (No. 6) -- ETA 2022

Seigler, who had just three hits in his last 33 at-bats, hit the injured list on July 20 with an undisclosed injury. In 30 games, Seigler is hitting .175 with a .328 on-base percentage and .206 slugging percentage.

Trevor Stephan, RHP, High-A Trenton (No. 8) -- ETA 2019

Stephan has yet to find a groove this season, even after being demoted to Tampa. The right-hander allowed three runs on six hits and a walk over 4 2/3 innings in his last start. After allowing hitters to record a .280 batting average against him while with Double-A Trenton, FSL batters are torching Stephan to the tune of a .318 average.

Antonio Cabello, OF, Rookie Advanced Pulaski (No. 9) -- ETA 2022

Over his last 10 games, Cabello has recored just six hits in 39 at-bats. The 18-year-old is hitting .198 with a .264 on-base percentage and .342 slugging percentage in 122 plate appearances.

Roansy Contreras, RHP, Low-A Charleston (No. 10) -- ETA 2022

In his last start, Contreras worked five innings in a no-decision, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. Contreras struck out five in the contest and has lowered his ERA from 4.81 to 4.33 over his last four starts (22 innings).

Nick Nelson, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 11) -- ETA 2020

Nelson continued a strong stretch, hurling five scoreless innings en route to his fourth win of the season. Nelson allowed five baserunners (three hits and two walks) while striking out five hitters. In 50 innings, Nelson possesses a strong 2.88 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP and 67 strikeouts.

Luis Gil, RHP, Low-A Charleston (No. 13) -- ETA 2022

Gil's pitch count - 83, with just 48 strikes - led to an early exit in his most recent start. Still, Gil was able to limit the damage to just one run in 3 2/3 innings, in which he struck out six hitters. Gil has 112 strikeouts in 83 innings for the RiverDogs.

It took me a while but I was finally able to track down a scout that had some info on Alfredo Garcia.  Here is that: pinstripedprospects.com/get-to-know-new-...

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Anthony Seigler, the Yankees’ first-round draft pick in 2018, had a disastrous first-full season in pro ball. The switch-hitting catcher posted a .175/.328/.206 batting line (74 wRC+) over 120 plate appearances for Low-A Charleston. Cashman revealed that Seigler fractured his knee on a foul tip and would get shut down for the rest of the year. The Yankees rave about his makeup, so here’s hoping he can put the year behind him and have a successful 2020.

Yankees Top Prospect Watch: Deivi Garcia struggling in Triple-A, Estevan Florial trending upward

Triple-A hitters are averaging .311 off Garcia thus far

Deivi Garcia, RHP, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (No. 1, MLB No. 66) -- ETA 2020

Some believe that Garcia might see some time in the big leagues this season. A courtesy call-up could be in store, but the chances of Garcia providing meaningful innings are dwindling as he's been torched by Triple-A batters in his four turns through the RailRiders' rotation.

Garcia allowed six runs in five innings in his last start and Triple-A batters are now hitting .311 off of the right-hander, as he's surrendered five home runs in his 19 innings with SWB.

Estevan Florial, OF, High-A Tampa (No. 2, MLB No. 67) -- ETA 2021

Florial is riding a modest four-game hit streak in which he's rapped six hits in 17 at-bats, including two triples and a home run. Florial drove in six runs during the upswing, which has boosted his batting average to .238.

Luis Gil, RHP, High-A Tampa (No. 4) -- ETA 2022

Gil's second start with Tampa was one to toss out the window, as the righty coughed up five runs in just three innings. Gil walked two and struck out two and will look to right the ship in his next outing.

Anthony Volpe, 2B, Rookie Advanced Pulaski (No. 11) -- ETA 2023

Volpe played sparingly this past week, but grabbed four hits in 14 at-bats. Over a longer stretch, Volpe has lifted his batting average to .218 from .125 by going 15-for-45 since July 16.

Alexander Vizcaino, RHP, High-A Tampa (No. 14) -- ETA 2022

The 22-year-old right-hander has found instant success in High-A, allowing just two runs in 12 innings across his first two starts. Vizcaino pitched to a 4.41 ERA in 87 1/3 innings for Charleston, but struck out 101 batters in the span.

Nick Nelson, RHP, Double-A Trention (No. 15) -- ETA 2020

Nelson continues to impress, hurling six scoreless innings, scattering four hits and three walks while striking out three batters. Nelson has allowed just four runs in his last 31 1/3 innings, which has lowered his season ERA to 2.61 in 58 2/3 innings.

Trevor Stephan, RHP, High-A Tampa (No. 16) -- ETA 2019

Stephan, who is clearly experiencing a resurgence, followed up his no-hitter by scattering seven hits in 5 1/3 scoreless innings. Stephan did not walk a batter and struck out three. The effort lowered his ERA to 5.45 in 66 combined innings (including Double-A Trenton).

Michael King, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 20) -- ETA 2019

King, who spent the first three months on the injured list has endured a rough return to the Tarpons rotation. In two starts (seven innings combined), King has allowed 13 runs including 10 in his Saturday start. King was expected to make great strides this season, but the injury has obviously set his timetable back some.

Clarke Schmidt shows why Yankees refused to trade him

Despite the Yankees’ obvious need to bolster their starting rotation before the trade deadline, general manager Brian Cashman passed on a deal that could have put Robbie Ray in pinstripes.

Clarke Schmidt is part of the reason why.

The 23-year-old, 2017 first-round pick, who reportedly was sought by Arizona in a potential trade package that also included Clint Frazier, has recently demonstrated why the Yankees were reluctant to part with him. Schmidt — the fifth-ranked Yankees prospect, according to MLB Pipeline — pitched a career-high seven shutout innings Monday for High-A Tampa, allowing three hits and three walks, while tying a career high with nine strikeouts.

Schmidt also opened the season in Lakeland, striking out nine in five no-hit innings.

“Some of the guys were laughing about it after the game, saying I really like pitching here,” Schmidt told MiLB.com. “I don’t know what it is exactly. The mound is really good, I like the stadium — it’s a pretty good atmosphere here. I enjoy the park and it was a lot of fun out there tonight, I just hope I don’t have to come here to pitch like that. I want to be able to do that every time out.”

Schmidt, who was limited to eight outings last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017, has twice been sent to the injured list this season, but has still made 12 appearances, posting a 2.98 ERA, while striking out 65 over 60 1/3 innings. In the best start of his young career, the right-hander faced two batters more than the minimum, and never allowed a runner to reach third base.

“I was holding my [velocity] well right up to the end there, but because of the pitch count and the length, I could definitely feel my legs getting tired under me,” Schmidt said. “But it was really good to be able to get to that mark and staying out there that long was good for me too.”

After deciding to stop throwing his slider early this season, Schmidt brought it back last week.

“I’ve been really working on throwing that slider type one for strikes and to be able to get guys to chase it late in the count, and that’s what I did tonight,” Schmidt said. “I got a lot of chases late or guys swinging through the breaking ball. It was really effective.

“It was just one of those nights where everything was working. In addition to my breaking balls, my changeup was really sharp and my fastball had a lot of life tonight — it was jumping for sure.”

New Yankees Top 10 prospects list includes Deivi Garcia supplanting Estevan Florial, more changes

Jasson Dominguez was the biggest addition to the list

Deivi Garcia jumping to No. 1 (while Estevan Florial slipped to No. 2) and stud international signing Jasson Dominguez coming in at No. 3 are just some of the changes on the new Yankees Top 10 prospects list that was released by MLB Pipeline.

Also of note: Albert Abreu dropped to No. 7 and Luis Gil jumped all the way from No. 13 to No. 4.

RHP Deivi Garcia, No. 1
OF Estevan Florial, No. 2
OF Jasson Dominguez, No. 3
RHP Luis Gil, No. 4
RHP Clarke Schmidt, No. 5
RHP Jonathan Loaisiga, No. 6 
RHP Albert Abreu, No. 7
RHP Yoendrys Gomez, No. 8
C Anthony Seigler, No. 9
OF Everson Pereira, No. 10

Garcia tore through Double-A this season and has put himself on the radar for a potential call-up this season, but has struggled since being promoted to Triple-A, with a 6.63 ERA and 1.63 FIP in 19.0 innings (four starts).

The Yankees held on to Garcia and all of their other most highly thought of prospects at the trade deadline, with GM Brian Cashman later claiminig that prices were too exorbitant to meet for any of the higher-end starting pitchers on the market.

While Cashman stood pat at the deadline, he was willing to trade Garcia as part of what he considered the right deal (such as one for Noah Syndergaard).

Dominguez has been called a "teenage Mike Trout" and his addition helped bolster a Yankees farm system that is viewed by most as a bottom-third system in the league. 

The Yankees' full new Top 30 can be viewed here.
