Yankees Prospects: Week 17 minor league review

The hot hitting has continued across the system but there will be plenty of trade deadline-related movement across the organization.

The Yankees have started making moves and a number of their notable minor league prospects are heading to new cities. This comes at a time when the Yankees’ farm teams are generally playing their best baseball of the season. With a lot of movement coming in the system after the trades, there is no shortage of candidates to move up and take their recent performances to the next level. Let’s take a look at how the Yankees minor league system faired this past week.

Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders

Record: 51-48; T-Fourth place in the International League (East), 3.5 GB

Past Week: 6-0 vs. Rochester Red Wings (Nationals)

Coming Up: Home vs. Buffalo Bison (Blue Jays)

The RailRiders went 18-6 in the month of July, finishing with the best record in the month of any MiLB full season team. It is no surprise that the players hitting at the top of the lineup have all been playing outstanding ball. Oswald Peraza, Miguel Andujar, Estevan Floirial and Oswaldo Cabera have all made big contributions of late. With big names like Hayden Wesneski and Ken Waldichuk being traded off their pitching staff in order to help the major league club, Scranton will need the offense to continue to step up if they want to continue their recent hot play (though Andujar is one name in particular who could move, given his trade request and 40-man roster spot).

Players of Note:

Oswald Peraza: 31 G; .344/.406/.625, 9 HR, 9 2B, 14 SB — doing his best to at least make the Yankees think about a move away from Isiah Kiner-Falefa as their MLB shortstop

Oswaldo Cabrera: 8 G; .387/.500/.742, 4 HR, 3 2B

Estevan Florial: 66 G; .311/.390/.538, 12 HR, 1 3B, 22 2B, 27 SB

Jhony Brito: 18 G; 2.76 ERA, 94.2 IP, 80 H, 29 BB, 75 K

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Second Half Record: 16-10; T-Second place in the Eastern League (Northeast), 0.5 GB

Overall Record: 60-35; First half Champion in the Eastern League (Northeast)

Past Week: 4-1 vs. Richmond Flying Squirrels (Giants)

Coming Up: Home vs. Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Mets)

As the Yankees trade some high-profile pitchers it is easy to overlook some of the arms that are flying under the radar in the system. This week, Patriots pitcher Sean Boyle recorded his ninth straight quality start, which is the longest streak by any minor leaguer since 2019. Austin Wells is riding a 14-game hitting streak and has a 180 wRC+ in that stretch. Top prospect Anthony Volpe has continued his strong play and has put-up big-time numbers since mid-May (151 wRC+ in last 56 games).

Players of Note:

Anthony Volpe: 56 G; .297/.380/.537, 11 HR, 22 2B, 23 SB

Austin Wells: 14 G; .357/.438/.589, 3 HR, 4 2B

Elijah Dunham: 29 G; .270/.377/.477, 6 HR, 5 2B

Sean Boyle: 9 G; 1.73 ERA, 57.1 IP, 38 H, 12 BB, 55 K

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

Second Half Record: 16-13; Second place in the South Atlantic League (North), 1.5 GB

Overall Record: 50-45

Past Week: 2-4 vs. Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets)

Coming Up: Away vs. Jersey Shore Blue Claws (Phillies)

Grant Richardson already has a Florida State League Player of the Week award under his belt this season, and perhaps only a day off cost him one in the South Atlantic League after he had an amazing last week. Richardson posted a 390 wRC+ on the week and after a slow start at High-A has really picked up the pace. This team lost some of its most productive pitchers in T.J. Sikkema and Beck Way during the week, but Blane Abeyta has been outstanding over his last five starts and continues to turn in strong performances for this Renegades team.

Players of Note:

Blane Abeyta: 5 G; 1.11 ERA, 24.1 IP, 16 H, 8 BB, 24 K

Grant Richardson: 4 G; .538/.625/1.385, 3 HR, 2 2B – 390 wRC+

Trey Sweeney: 24 G; .289/.407/.489, 2 HR, 2 3B, 8 2B, 6 SB

Edgar Barclay: 19 G; 2.11, 42.2 IP, 31 H, 14 BB, 52 K

Low-A Tampa Tarpons

Second Half Record: 19-9; First place in the Florida State League (West Coast), 1.5 GA

Overall Record: 46-48

Past Week: 5-2 vs. Fort Myers Mighty Mussels (Twins)

Coming Up: Home vs. Clearwater Threshers (Blue Jays)

With the looming addition of some of the Yankees 2022 draft picks, the Tarpons continued to play their best baseball of the season. Ben Cowles remains on fire for the Tarpons along with big-time catching prospect Antonio Gomez. After losing two colleges season due to COVID, the Yankees took a chance on Ben Rice during the 2021 draft despite limited game action. The Dartmouth University product has turned it on and is putting up some big numbers as he splits time with Gomez behind the plate.

Players of Note:

Ben Cowles: 35 G; .327/.409/.536, 3 HR, 2 3B, 10 2B, 8 SB

Antonio Gomez: 21 G; .375/.439/.569, 3 HR, 3B, 3 2B

Juan Carela: 16 G; 2.96 ERA, 79 IP, 49 H, 35 BB

Ben Rice: 35 G; .304/.385/.510, 5 HR, 6 2B

What’s behind Yankees prospect Antonio Gomez’s recent success?

Pin Striped Prospects

Yankees #18 prospect Antonio Gomez’s 2022 campaign had a less than ideal start. 

The 20-year-old backstop hit .179 with a .513 OPS through his first 15 games of the season for the Low-A Tampa Tarpons, prompting his demotion to the purgatory of Minor League Baseball, extended spring training. 

One of the Yankees top signings in the 2018 International Free Agent class out of Venezuela, Gomez spent 19 long days at the team’s complex in Tampa, playing on backfields absent of bleachers let alone fans. 

When Austin Wells went down with an injury in High-A and Tarpons catcher Anthony Seigler was promoted to replace him, Gomez returned to Low-A, sporting a fresh new look… glasses.

While they might not be decked out with a skull and lighting bolt like Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn from the classic baseball movie Major League, the prescription specs may have just worked the same magic. 

Since returning to Low-A, Gomez is hitting .281 with five home runs and an OPS above .800. Over the month of July he hit .364 with 13 RBI’s in 15 games.

“He started really, really rough,” Tarpons hitting coach Kevin Martir admitted. “He’s been performing a lot better… he said he feels a lot better and sees a lot better with the glasses on, so he’s been using them ever since.”

While his offense is developing daily, Gomez’s defense is something the Yankees don’t have to worry too much about. Tabbed as the best defensive catcher in the system by Baseball America, with an arm rivaling the best in the entire sport, Gomez has thrown out nearly a third of attempted base stealers in the Florida State League this season.

Gomez has posted sub 1.80 second pop times to second base, and has been clocked in the mid-80’s throwing from behind home plate. He even reached 101 MPH on the radar gun while playing catch during a winter workout. 

With an energetic demeanor on the diamond and leadership qualities that more resemble Jake Taylor, Gomez’s recent success at the plate paired with dominance behind it give him one of the higher ceilings in the Yankees farm system, and make him one of the top prospects to follow as his career unfolds.

Yankees Prospects: Week 18 minor league review

The Tampa Tarpons have a trio of hot hitters who are powering their second half surge.

After a busy trade deadline, there was a lot of movement around the Yankees minor league system. Some of their hottest prospects continued hitting, with a trio at Low-A finding their stride and making a strong case for a late-season promotion. Let’s take a look at how their minor league affiliates did this past week and who stood out amongst the crowd.

Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders

Record: 54-50; T-Fourth place in the International League (East), 5.0 GB

Past Week: 3-2 vs. Buffalo Bison (Blue Jays)

Coming Up: Home vs. Worcester Red Sox

Despite losing a significant number of players, the RailRiders continued their hot play, taking three of the five games they completed this week over the Buffalo Bison, who they are now tied with for fourth place in the Division. Oswald Peraza continued to be a force in the RailRiders lineup, and has a 167 wRC+ dating back to June 11th. He was removed from Sunday’s game after being hit on the wrist, but X-Rays did not show any broken bones and he is expected back in the lineup soon. Meanwhile, Miguel Andújar may be on his way to Seattle and back with the Yankees after Matt Carpenter’s broken foot on Monday night.

Players of Note:

Oswald Peraza: 35 G; .343/.403/.615, 10 HR, 9 2B, 15 SB

Oswaldo Cabrera: 12 G; .356/.455/.689, 4 HR, 3 2B

Miguel Andújar: 35 G; .306/.344/.549, 8 HR, 11 2B

Jhony Brito: 19 G; 2.61 ERA, 100 IP, 82 H, 33 BB, 82 K

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Second Half Record: 18-14’ T-Second place in the Eastern League (Northeast), 0.5 GB

Overall Record: 62-39 First-half Champion in the Eastern League (Northeast)

Past Week: 2-4 vs. Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Mets)

Coming Up: Home vs. Hartford Yard Goats (Rockies)

Sean Boyle has recorded ten straight quality starts, extending a run that is the longest streak by a minor league pitcher since 2019. The Patriots struggled over the last week, but did receive a boost from Andres Chaparro, who returned from an injury and rehab stint to reach base seven times in three games at the end of the week. Austin Wells extended a long hitting streak to 16-games before seeing it end during the middle of the week.

Players of Note:

Anthony Volpe: 61 G; .285/.380/.536, 12 HR, 23 2B, 23 SB

Austin Wells: 19 G; .312/.391/.532, 4 HR, 5 2B

Jeisson Rosario: 14 G; .412/.531/.647, 2 HR, 1 3B, 4 2B

Sean Boyle: 10 G; 1.68 ERA, 64.1 IP, 42 H, 12 BB, 62 K

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

Second Half Record: 20-15; Second place in the South Atlantic League (North), 0.5 GB

Overall Record: 54-47

Past Week: 4-2 vs. Jersey Shore Blue Claws (Phillies)

Coming Up: Home vs. Aberdeen IronBirds (Orioles)

After seeing some of their best starters moved at the trade deadline, the Renegades bounced back with another strong week. Blane Abeyta has been outstanding since early June and is pitching like an ace for the team. Matt Sauer set the franchise strikeout record when he recorded his 149th strikeout as a Renegade. Juan Carela also earned a promotion to High-A but had a rough first start with the team. On the offensive side of things, T.J. Rumfield has been playing well since returning from the IL.

Players of Note:

Blane Abeyta: 6 G; 1.19 ERA, 30.1 IP, 21 H, 9 BB, 26 K

Jasson Dominguez: 61 G; .280/.419/.464, 8 HR, 3 3B, 8 2B, 20 SB

T.J. Rumfield: 11 G; .300/.404/.400, 1 HR, 1 2B

Edgar Barclay: 20 G; 1.97 ERA, 45.2 IP, 32 H, 14 BB, 55 K

Low-A Tampa Tarpons

Second Half Record: 22-12; T-First place in the Florida State League (West Coast)

Overall Record: 49-51

Past Week: 3-3 vs. Clearwater Threshers (Phillies)

Coming Up: Away vs. Dunedin Blue Jays

The Tarpons continued to play strong baseball in the second half of the season, and the trio of Ben Cowles, Ben Rice and Antonio Gomez have been on fire for over a month at the Low-A level. Cowles, a second baseman, is an especially strong candidate for promotion after the Yankees traded Cooper Bowman, who had been manning second base for the High-A Hudson Valley Renegades. The Tarpons will likely see several 2022 draft picks join the team in the coming week, highlighted by Spencer Jones, who has gotten off to a fast start in the Florida Complex League.

(Update: Jones is indeed on his way to Low-A, as are fellow 2022 picks Brett Barrera and Tayler Aguilar.)

Players of Note:

Ben Cowles: 42 G; .336/.432/.534, 3 HR, 2 3B, 13 2B, 10 SB

Antonio Gomez: 26 G; .359/.429/.522, 3 HR, 3B, 4 2B

Ben Rice: 40 G; .303/.382/.504, 6 HR, 6 2B

Yon Castro: 16 G; 3.12 ERA, 66.1 IP, 51 H, 22 BB, 82 K

The Yankees also continued to shuffle their farm system in the wake of their numerous deadline deals and as short-season ball nears an end. First baseman Eric Wagaman and pitcher Matt Sauer both got bumps from High-A Hudson Valley to Double-A Somerset, while pitcher Sean Boyle bumped up from Somerset to Triple-A. Plus, 2022 first-round pick Spencer Jones is ticketed for Low-A Tampa.

Yankees’ first-rounder, two other 2022 draftees take first big step

With their first selection in the 2022 MLB Draft, the New York Yankees went high-risk, high-reward — though if any team can unlock outfielder Spencer Jones, it’s probably them.

After all, they pulled a body type they’re very familiar with (massive, toolsy outfielder who’s massive with a massive frame) from a trusted academy (Vanderbilt typically gets the job done) whose pre-draft stats looked exactly like Aaron Judge’s.

Most analysts did not seem to agree with the Yankees’ predilection for Jones — at least, not so early. But what do the Yankees look for in the draft, time and time again? Advanced college bats and familiarity. This year, they just so happened to find what they were looking for at a more mainstream school like Vandy instead of digging deeper and nabbing someone out of, say, Eastern Illinois.

Though it’s obscenely early, initial returns on Jones’ bat seem extremely positive. He might’ve been viewed among the rawest first-round talents selected over the All-Star Break, but he’s still rocketed to full-season ball just a few days after his debut.

According to the transaction wire, Jones is riding a 5-for-10 start to his pro career up to Low-A Tampa, alongside fellow 2022 draft picks Brett Barrera (8th round out of Stanford) and Tayler Aguilar (15th round out of Grand Canyon University). All three fast risers are position players.

Yankees first-round pick Spencer Jones, 2022 draftees Tayler Aguilar and Brett Barrera join Low-A Tampa

Jones’ gaudy numbers (three singles, a bomb, a double, two stolen bases and a Matt Carpenter-esque 1.445 OPS) made it obvious he’d joined the system with an advanced-enough approach to deserve a few weeks of full-season ball. FCL pitchers will thank the Yankees with a fruit basket, probably.

He’ll now join Rachel Balkovec’s squad, who was instrumental in getting fellow tooled-up outfielder Jasson Dominguez on track this year, as well as “breakout” candidate Antonio Gomez, who began the season lost in April, but has posted a .364 average and .990 OPS as a 20-year-old in July.

Not only will Jones get a fresh opportunity to cap his whirlwind 2022, but being in full-season ball means eagle-eyed prospect watchers will now get a chance to peep his Statcast data from his work in Tampa (and at the adjoining FSL ballparks, which double as Spring Training sites).

Despite his high-level collegiate experience, Jones is still a project, even though he’ll likely tear the cover off the ball when he makes his best contact. Practice patience, but celebrate the milestones — and this is a fun one.

And don’t sleep on Barrera, either, an advanced collegiate bat who seems very ready for the challenge. If you liked Cooper Bowman and TJ Rumfeld, you might love him, too.

Yankees Prospects: Week 19 minor league review

Oswaldo Cabrera’s hot stretch continues to help Triple-A Scranton close the gap on their division rivals.

The minor leagues are heading into the home stretch as the Florida Complex League and Dominican Summer League approach their final full week of action. The Yankees’ FCL team clinched a playoff spot as they have a 34-13 record, and their +121-run differential is the best in the entire league. High-A Hudson Valley and Low-A Tampa have less than a month left with their regular season, and both are battling for a playoff spot if they can win the second-half standings. Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Scranton will stretch a little farther near the end of September and both teams are playing really good baseball.

Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders

Record: 58-52; Fourth place in the International League (East), 3.0 GB

Past Week: 4-2 vs. Worcester Red Sox

Coming Up: Away vs. St. Paul Saints (Twins)

Sent down to Triple-A to be stretched out as a starter, Clarke Schmidt has morphed right back into the starting role that he had through much of his professional career. This past week he tossed 6 perfect innings with 11 strikeouts, throwing 78 pitches along the way. Offensively, Oswaldo Cabrera continued his strong performance since returning from injury with more home runs and a pair of triples; he has a 1.073 OPS since returning from the IL a month ago and could very well help the big-league club. The RailRiders were 15.5 games out of first place in early June, but they now stand just three back of first place in a tightly group top of the International League East standings.

Players of Note:

Clarke Schmidt: 2 G; 0.82 ERA, 11 IP, 4 H, 0 BB, 14 K

Oswald Peraza: 41 G; .325/.388/.578, 11 HR, 9 2B, 17 SB

Oswaldo Cabrera: 19 G; .394/.471/.718, 5 HR, 2 3B, 4 2B

Jhony Brito: 20 G; 2.66 ERA, 105 IP, 87 H, 33 BB, 85 K

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Second-Half Record: 22-16; Second place in the Eastern League (Northeast), 1.5 GB

Overall Record: 66-41; First-half Champion in the Eastern League (Northeast)

Past Week: 4-2 vs. Hartford Yard Goats (Rockies)

Coming Up: Away vs. Bowie BaySox (Orioles)

A number of offensive players remained hot for the Patriots as they won another weekly series and stayed within reach of first place in the division. Andres Chaparro’s return from the injured list has been a jolt for the offense as he has picked up hitting for power and getting on base. Austin Wells continues to show that his bat plays at the higher levels and a number of other players are providing big contributions as well. Pitching prospect Randy Vasquez has been great in August, allowing just one earned run in three starts while tossing 15.2 innings.

Players of Note:

Anthony Volpe: 67 G; .286/.377/.517, 12 HR, 24 2B, 25 SB

Overall Record: 57-50

Past Week: 3-3 vs. Aberdeen IronBirds (Orioles)

Coming Up: Away vs. Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets)

The Hudson Valley Renegades have been on the run all season long. The team has stolen an incredible 196 bases through 107 games and leads the South Atlantic League by 51 stolen bases. This past week Jasson Domínguez added five stolen bases on his own and now has 29 total on the season between the Low-A and High-A levels.

Low-A Tampa Tarpons

Second-Half Record: 24-16; Second place in the Florida State League (West Coast), 2.0 GB

Overall Record: 51-55

Past Week: 2-4 vs. Dunedin Blue Jays

Coming Up: Home vs. Bradenton Marauders (Pirates)

The Tarpons continue to get incredible production from the due of Antonio Gomez and Ben Rice. The duo that splits the catching duties for the team have been the steadiest bats in the lineup for over a month now. First-round pick Spencer Jones had an up-and-down first week at the level as he connected on his first Low-A home run but finished with just 2 hits in his 16 at-bats. The team fell out of a first-place tie, but they will get the chance to make that up this week as they play the first place Bradenton Marauders in Tampa.

Players of Note:

Antonio Gomez: 31 G; .333/.404/.495, 3 HR, 3B, 7 2B

Ben Rice: 32 G; .344/.440/.533, 5 HR, 2 2B

Yon Castro: 17 G; 3.04 ERA, 71.0 IP, 54 H, 23 BB, 85 K

Christopher Familia: 8 G; .320/.452/.560, 2 HR

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Now that the trade deadline has come and gone, MLB Pipeline is getting around to updating all of the league’s top-30 prospect lists following a major re-shuffling of prospects (and improvements throughout the season). There’s no shock that the usual faces lead the team’s top three, with Anthony Volpe being listed as one of the top five prospects in all of baseball, but there are some notable changes. This year’s first-round pick Spencer Jones slots in as the team’s seventh-best prospect, and Clayton Beeter is now the ninth-best after being traded over from the Dodgers. Will Warren has also risen from an unranked position to the eighth place on the organization list, and Austin Wells joins Volpe, Oswald Peraza, and Jasson Domínguez on the top-100 MLB prospects list coming in at 87th overall.
