Baseball America unveiled their Top 100 Prospect list today.
Six Yankees made the list:
3. Jesus Montero, c
30. Gary Sanchez, c
41. Manny Banuelos, lhp
43. Dellin Betances, rhp
78. Andrew Brackman, rhp
98. Austin Romine, c
In terms of sheer number of prospects, this is the best showing for the organization since 1999, when the Bombers also placed six in the top 100 (including SS Alfonso Soriano and 3B Drew Henson).
Montero’s #3 ranking is the highest for any Yankee prospect since Joba Chamberlain was the #3 prospect in 2008. Montero was 38th on the 2009 list, and fourth last year.
In 2010, the Yanks placed only two names on this list (Montero and Romine).
