MLB.com ranked the New York Yankees' farm system No. 2 in baseball on Friday.
Writers Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Mike Rosenbaum graded the Yankees, who have seven prospects in MLB.com's top 100, just beneath the Atlanta Braves.
Gleyber Torres was ranked MLB.com's No. 3 prospect in baseball, while Clint Frazier, Blake Rutherford, Aaron Judge, Jorge Mateo, James Kaprielian and Justus Sheffield all ranked in the top 79.
On MLB.com's point scale that gives the No. 1 prospect 100 points, No. 2 prospect 99 points, and so on, the Yankees led all 30 MLB teams with 414 points, followed by the Chicago White Sox's 379 points and the Braves' 363.
In January, ESPN's Keith Law also ranked the Yankees' farm system No. 2 in baseball, also behind the Braves.
GM Brian Cashman said earlier this offseason he thought the Yankees had their best farm system since it featured Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte.
"It's pretty strong and pretty deep," Cashman told the New York Post's Steve Serby, "and I'd say probably starting to turn the clock back to the days when I was the assistant farm director and Brian Sabean was the scouting director back in the early '90s. It hasn't been this strong since the early '90s."
