    NYY Fans Top 10 vs. Baseball America Top 10

    NYY Fans vs Baseball America Top 10

    NYY Fans:

    1. Clint Frazier
    2. Gleyber Torres
    3. Aaron Judge
    4. Jorge Mateo
    5. Blake Rutherford
    6. James Kaprielian
    7. Justus Sheffield
    8. Chance Adams
    9. Dustin Fowler
    10. Domingo Acevedo

    Baseball America:

    1. Gleyber Torres
    2. Clint Frazier
    3. Blake Rutherford
    4. Jorge Mateo
    5. James Kaprielian
    6. Aaron Judge
    7. Justus Sheffield
    8. Chance Adams
    9. Dustin Fowler
    10. Domingo Acevedo

    Some thoughts:

    If you were to tier the top prospects - it's apparent the consensus falls in 4 tiers:

    Tier I: Torres & Frazier - they are interchangeable - but with Frazier struggling towards end of season and Torres shining brighter - easy to see the swap occurring

    Tier II - Rutherford - a tier all to himself - clearly greater potential than Tier III, but not quite at the top tier yet

    Tier III - Mateo, Kapriellian, Judge - interesting that Judge has quickly lost his prospect luster. Judge has Gardner syndrome (which is not bad to have) - always struggles at the new level and then figures it out the second go-around... He'll be fine mark my word.

    Tier IV - Sheffield, Adams, Fowler, Acevedo - interesting that we had the order already in place and Baseball America just simply went over to our site and duplicated it

    - 5 of the top 6 prospects are position players (6/10)
    - if Cashman is looking to improve the team thru trades - look for Mateo, Fowler, and Acevedo (with Adams as a 4th option) to be key players trade - question is will it be enough? As I see the top 3 being untouchable and special love for Sheffield.

    Very interesting. I think if we did the poll today, we'd have Gleyber finish at #1, but it's very cool to see guys like Chance Adams and Fowler getting attention. I slightly suspected they were getting a homegrown boost over guys like Tate and McKinney, but that does not seem to be the case.

    Gleyber is definitely #1 by now.

    I look at it this way:

    1 - Our poll had the same top 6, although in a different sequence.
    2 - We both agreed on the bottom 4.

    Glad to see that BA follows us here on NYYFans.

    As in most cases tools/hype gets more legitimacy than production.

    That being said. I love them all and I don't care what number gets placed by their names.

    Loving that shakeup. Love the fact they have Blake so high too. Kap is too high for me. Need a healthy season from him. He didn't exactly light up the AFL either.

    Ian Clarkin? I like him quite a bit. Also have a soft spot for Miguel Andujar.
