Albert Abreu, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 3) -- ETA 2020

Abreu followed up a six-inning scoreless outing with a one-run effort, but he lasted just 4.2 innings. The right-hander continued to allow too many baserunners (1.91 WHIP in 26 innings), which is preventing him from pitching deep into games. Abreu did lower his ERA to 4.73 on the season.

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

According to NJ.com, Florial (No. 54 on MLB Pipeline's Top-100 prospect rankings) recently had his cast removed from his fractured right wrist meaning he could begin baseball activities soon. Florial impressed in Spring Training, but he's been saddled with injuries, which has impeded his ability to climb the organizational ladder as quickly as hoped.

Jonathan Loaisiga, SP, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (No. 2) - 2019 

Loaisiga didn't make a start with the RailRiders this past week because he was back up with the Yankees for a very brief stay. Loaisiga tossed three innings of scoreless relief, picking up the win in the Yanks comeback victory over the Angels on April 24. After the outing, the Yanks sent Loaisiga back to SWB.

With the trade deadline approaching swiftly, every team is doing their due diligence of scouting farm systems across the country. As for the Yankees, they've certainly being putting in the extra hours as GM Brian Cashman is looking to make a splash with a preference in the pitching department.

The Giants have also been doing their homework, and the Yankees' farm system is at the top of their list. In fact, they have their eyes set on one particular prospect.

Right-handed hurler Albert Abreu reportedly impressed the Giants when they took a look at the Yankees' lower-level farm teams, per NJ.com's Brendan Kuty. Abreu is the Yankees' third-best prospect, according to MLB.com, and he is sporting a 4.28 ERA over 48.1 innings with High-A Tampa this season.
