Our weekly minor league report canvases the Yankees' farm system providing updates about the organization's top prospects.
Notes: Prospect rankings (via MLBPipeline.com) are club based with overall MLB rank, if appli-cable, in parenthesis. Team records, statistics and current club assignments are through games played August 10, 2018.
No. 1 (No. 27) - Justus Sheffield (LHP) - Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre - ETA 2018
Sheffield finally suffered a blip in what has been a fantastic season. In 1 1/2 innings, Sheffield allowed four runs on four hits and a whopping five walks. The Yankees have been reluctant to bring Sheffield up to the majors and his command has likely been one of the issues (21 walks in last 53 1/3 innings, which is 3.5 walks per nine innings).
