After being ranked No. 2 last year behind Gleyber Torres, outfielder Estevan Florial enters 2019 as the Yankees' No. 1 prospect, according to the latest top-30 list released by MLB Pipeline.
Rounding out the top five are RHP Jonathan Loaisiga, RHP Albert Abreu, RHP Deivi Garcia and RHP Clarke Schmidt.
While MLB.com's Jim Callis notes there are "swing-and-miss concerns" with Florial, his multiple above-average tools put him atop the Yanks' farm system. The site gives Florial a 65 grade for running and arm, a 60 for defense and a 55 for power.
Florial, 21, did not make Keith Law's list of the top 100 prospects in baseball, but he did make MLB Pipeline's top 100 list and Baseball Prospectus' top 101 list.
The biggest riser on MLB Pipeline's list of the top 30 Yankees prospects is center fielder Antonio Cabello, who is ranked No. 9 on the list after not being ranked last year. After converting from catcher, the 18-year-old hit .321 with a .981 OPS in 40 Gulf Coast League games last year.
RHP Freicer Perez is the biggest faller as he isn't ranked in the top 30 after coming in at No. 8 last season. He gave up 20 earned runs in 25 innings for High-A Tampa last season before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. RHP Chance Adams dropped from No. 6 to No. 20.
