1. BRADY LAIL, RHP, Charleston Riverdogs (A): 3.49 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 71 K, 13 BB

Lail, 20, was an 18th rounder in 2012, but has a career 5.96 K/BB and has raised his K/9 each season.

2. ROB REFSNYDER, 2B, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (AAA): .333 BA, .375 OBP, .529 SLG, 6 HR

His hot-hitting earned a recent promotion to Triple-A. Possesses excellent patience and contact.

3. AARON JUDGE, RF, Charleston Riverdogs (A): .330 BA, .427 OBP, .530 SLG, 9 HR

The 2013 first-round pick has excelled in his first pro season.

Another 2013 first-round pick, Jagielo has a .477 slugging percentage in two minor league seasons.

7. GARY SANCHEZ, C, Trenton Thunder (AA): .251 BA, .328 OBP, .414 SLG, 7 HR

The prospects’ numbers, particularly his slugging, have steadily declined since his breakout rookie year.

8. MANNY BANUELOS, LHP, Trenton Thunder (AA): 3.34 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 34 K, 11 BB

Missed most of 2012 and all of 2013 due to Tommy John surgery. Beginning to show former dominance.

9. IAN CLARKIN, LHP, Charleston Riverdogs (A+): 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 37 K, 8 BB

The Yankees’ third first-round pick in 2013 has shown excellent control at 19 years old.

10. KYLE ROLLER, 1B, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (AAA): .335 BA, .415 OBP, .660 SLG, 15 HR

At 26 years old, he’s on the fringe. But hard to ignore that 30 of his 63 hits have gone for extra bases.
