It could be that I watch so many of the Yankees’ minor league affiliates over the summer that I develop a bias, but I really like their system. Anthony Volpe has star written all over him, and despite being the most overhyped prospect in a long time, so does Jasson Dominguez. Everyone forgets Oswald Peraza, but he hit 19 home runs, stole 33 bases last season, and didn’t look lost in a September call-up for the Yankees. Trey Sweeney took a step forward, and there’s a lot to get excited about the Yankees’ first-round pick last July, Spencer Jones. And then there are the young Latin kids they seem to acquire yearly. It’s a deep system, particularly with positional players, that should provide depth for the Yankees’ machine for the next several years as first responders or trade bait.
