Yankees shortstops Gleyber Torres and Jorge Mateo, and third baseman Miguel Andujar, are Top 10 prospects at their position, according to lists released by MLB.com.
Torres, 20, is the top shortstop prospect in baseball, according to MLB.com, and "boasts one of the highest offensive ceilings among prospects, with the potential to hit for a high average and deliver 20-plus homers from a premium position."
He was acquired from the Cubs in exchange for Aroldis Chapman last July.
Mateo, 21, is the eighth-best shortstop prospect. He was suspended for two weeks last season due to insubordination, and Mike Rosenbaum of MLB.com says there are questions regarding whether he can stick at shortstop long-term.
The 21-year-old Andujar, who finished last season with Double-A Trenton, is the seventh-best third base prospect.
The Yankees, who traded away lots of key pieces near last year's trade deadline, have the second-best farm system in baseball, according to Keith Law of ESPN.
The praise for Torres keeps coming. He will be starting the season at Double-A Trenton and it would not surprise anyone if he earns a promotion to Triple-A in quick time. The infield dynamic in New York will have as much to do with Torres' climb to the big leagues as his personal performance.
Mateo's response to a difficult 2016 season might be a defining moment in his young career. He could start a level below Torres (or as his teammate) and he might be playing some at second base or even the outfield in order to provide the organization some versatility. Mateo's work ethic and his demeanor, regardless of the league and the positions he plays, is as important as his production in 2017.
Andujar jumped onto the scene in 2016 and you could make the argument that his 2017 season will have a good deal to say about the fate of Chase Headley in 2018. The Yankees do not have a lot of depth at third base in the minors, but having a player a step away from the big leagues is encouraging for the organization.
