Yankees' top-pitching prospect Deivi Garcia looked back on the 2019 Futures Game as a positive experience. 

Garcia, now 21, had a 1-2-3 first inning of action in the game which included a strikeout. 

At the time, Garcia, who was promoted to Triple-A Scranton after the game, looked back on the outing in a positive light.

Baseball America has released its Top 10 prospects for the Yankees heading into the 2020 season, and while some prospects make perfect sense on the list, one certain omission stood out. 

Estevan Florial, once the Yankees' top prospect, has fallen off the Top 10 list. This came after a down year in High-A ball with a .237/.297/.383 slash line with eight homers and 38 RBI over 74 games. 

So, with Florial off the list, here's how it looks:

Aside from 16-year-old wunderkind OF Jasson Dominguez, who is viewed as a future star, the Yankees are lacking sizzle when it comes to most of their top 10 prospects.

RHP Deivi Garcia is one of the names to keep an eye on as far as potential impact in 2020 is concerned, with him being a potential option in the starting rotation or bullpen at some point.

As far as a breakout candidate for 2020, MLB Pipeline gives that honor to RHP Clarke Schmidt, who was the Yankees' No. 5 prospect entering last season.

With the Yankees signing Gerrit Cole to a record contract earlier this winter, it's been a pretty buzzworthy offseason already in the Bronx. 

How great would it be if they kept that sizzle going and made a trade for Josh Hader, the lefty strikeout machine who has anchored Milwaukee's bullpen the last two years? 

Maybe the Brewers are just in listen mode and the whole idea's a longshot. Perhaps it'd be easier and smarter to just re-sign Dellin Betances, considering the hefty return Milwaukee likely will demand.

The Yankees made the move to protect seven prospects and avoid December's Rule 5 Draft by adding them to their 40-man roster ahead of Wednesday's 8 p.m. ET deadline.

New York added OF Estevian Florial, RHP Deivi Garcia, RHP Luis Gil, RHP Brooks Kriske, RHP Luis Medina, RHP Nick Nelson and RHP Miguel Yajure to its MLB roster.

As corresponding moves, it released OF Jacoby Ellsbury while designating 1B Greg Bird and LHP Nestor Cortes for assignment.

It's obvious that Gerrit Cole should be far and away the Yankees' top priority this offseason. But what if he really is determined to play in California, as so many people seem to think? 

Or what if Hal Steinbrenner isn't ready to break the budget for an ace? Where would Brian Cashman turn, then, for top-notch starting pitching -- the Yankees' only real need this winter? 

They will be looking for someone who can dominate a postseason start, not a regular season innings-eater, so that narrows the field considerably.

Every Monday, we'll be taking a look at how the Yankees' top prospects (their MLB.com Yankees Top-30 rankings are in parenthesis) are faring.


Deivi Garcia, RHP, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (No. 1, MLB No. 64) -- ETA 2020

In the bullpen for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since Aug. 22, Garcia's continues to adjust. His second appearance came last Monday when he allowed two runs on three hits, a walk and a hit batter while he struck two out on 42 pitches, battling command issues with 24 strikes to 18 balls. Garcia's latest outing and third overall as a reliever occurred last last Friday with mixed results. He surrendered three runs on two hits, including a home run, plus two walks to two strikeouts on 38 pitches -- 21 strikes.

In three games from the 'pen, Garcia has given up six runs on eight hits (two home runs) and sports a 11.57 ERA. However, his swings and misses are still evident of the power arm that made the 20-year-old rise up the Yankees' list of prospects, striking out nine while walking three.

Deivi Garcia has garnered attention from fans and media since the Yankees promoted the RHP to the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, but another arm developing on New York's farm reportedly has folks within the organization buzzing.

From a high-ranking Yankees scout to the franchise's High-A manager, a Wednesday report by Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media details New York's infatuation with RHP Miguel Yajure.

Garcia is nearing a possible promotion to the big leagues, where the Yankees could use him from the bullpen during the team's postseason push from August through October, but Yajure appears to be on his own ascension as he climbs the ladder.

The Yankees top prospect, RHP Deivi Garcia will move to the bullpen for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders for the rest of the season according to Conor Foley of The Times-Tribune in Scranton.

Foley noted that the Yankees have made similar moves like this last season with RHP Chance Adams and LHP Justus Sheffield. This was in preparation for the end of season roles that each player was going to have with the team. Adams pitched in three games last season, going 0-1 with a 7.04 ERA. While Sheffield also pitched in three games, throwing just 2.2 innings and allowing three earned runs on four hits.

Garcia, the No. 64 prospect in the MLB, has struggled in his two most recent starts. He failed to make it through the fifth inning in either game, and allowed two runs in both match-ups. He struck out a total of nine batters and walked four over 8.1 combined innings of work.
