OF Estevan Florial (No. 57) and RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (No. 66) made the cut for the Yanks. Florial was No. 66 on the Baseball Prospectus list, while Florial was No. 66.
Former Yankees prospect Justus Sheffield -- who was dealt to the Mariners in the trade for LHP James Paxton -- came in at No. 43 on MLB Pipeline's list.
"Florial excites scouts with three tools that grade as well above average: his raw power, speed and arm strength," according to MLB Pipeline's scouting report. "With the bat speed and loft in his left-handed swing, he's well equipped to take advantage of Yankee Stadium. He's still raw and overly aggressive as a hitter, leading to concerns about whether he can make enough contact to realize his full potential, though he did post the best walk rate (13 percent) and second-best strikeout rate (25 percent) of his career during his truncated 2018 season."
Regarding Loaisiga, MLB Pipeline writes that he "has the upside of a No. 2 or 3 starter if he can stay healthy -- though that's a big 'if.'"
Loaisiga, 24, had a 5.11 ERA (3.53 FIP) and 1.54 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 22 innings (four starts, five relief appearances) in 2018, during what was his first taste of the majors. For Double-A Trenton in 2018, Loaisiga had a 3.93 ERA in 33.1 innings.
The 21-year-old Florial -- who was reportedly a target of the Indians earlier this offseason when they were dangling Corey Kluber -- hit .255/.354/.361 with three homers, three triples, 16 doubles, and 11 stolen bases in 75 games for High-A Tampa this past season. He is a career .281/.365/.449 hitter across four minor league seasons.
As far as the rest of the AL East, the Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was No. 1 on the list, with Toronto having four other representatives (including SS Bo Bichette, who came in at No. 11). The Rays, who have one of the best farm systems in baseball, had six players on the list (including SS Wander Franco, who checked in at No. 13). The Orioles had three players on the list and the Red Sox had one.
