YANKS MINOR LEAGUE SHORTSTOPS (EOD 8/8/2014)

 

While the most buzz about top Yankee shortstop prospects goes to Abiatal Avelino and Tyler Wade, a couple of 19-year-olds sharing the position at Low-A Charleston, there are a few other names and stat-lines to watch at the lower levels of the farm system.

Angel Aguilar, a 6-foot 19-year-old from Venezuela, is currently leading the GCL in home runs with 7. Jorge Mateo (19) and Thairo Estrada (18) were both generating a lot of excitement before going down with injuries. And Yonauris Rodriguez, (still just 17!) signed in July of 2013 out of San Pedro de Macoris, the “cradle of shortstops”, has been described by Baseball America’s Ben Badler as “one of the best defensive shortstops in Latin America, with good hands, range and arm strength.” He was just named to Baseball America’s August 8th Prospect Hot Sheet “Helium Watch.”
