Baseball America Yankees Top 30 Prospects

The top 10 list came out a few weeks ago, but today, with the release of the Baseball America's 2008 Prospect Handbook, comes the list of the Yankees top 30 prospects. (A tip of the cap to Peter Abraham)

1. Joba Chamberlain, RHP
2. Austin Jackson, OF
3. Jose Tabata, OF
4. Ian Kennedy, RHP
5. Alan Horne, RHP
6. Jesus Montero, C
7. Jeff Marquez, RHP
8. Brett Gardner, OF
9. Ross Ohlendorf, RHP
10. Andrew Brackman, RHP
11. Mark Melancon, RHP
12. Humberto Sanchez, RHP
13. Dellin Betances, RHP
14. Dan McCutchen, RHP
15. Kevin Whelan, RHP
16. Carmen Angelini, SS
17. George Kontos, RHP
18. Ivan Nova, RHP
19. Collin Curtis, OF
20. Jairo Heredia, RHP
21. Juan Miranda, 1B
22. Austin Romine, C
23. Francisco Cervelli, C
24. Dave Robertson, RHP
25. Mike Dunn, LHP
26. J.B. Cox, RHP
27. Mitch Hilligoss, INF
28. Scott Patterson, RHP
29. Edwar Ramirez, RHP
30. Zach McAllister, RHP

The Yankees are ranked 5th in organization talent. In 2004 there were ranked 27th. The Yankees have done a heck of a job taking what was one of the worst farm systems in baseball and turning it into one of the best.

Peter also takes a look at the money the Yankees and Red Sox have been spending on draft picks.

Tabata should be at tops. Melancoln's a bit high.
Bentaces and McClutchen aren't great pitchers.
Angelini is terrible on offense and Alberto Gonzalez still has a better glove. Ivan Nova is very high. The yankees have tons of OF depth and though Colin Curtis is talented, he is towards the bottom of it.
Jairo Heredia should be top 10 easy next year.
Austin Romine should be a lot higher (close to Montero) and Cerveli could be a bit higher.
Robertson is a tad low.
Mike Dunn is really low. JB Cox is terrible. Hilligoss isn't his good. Patterson ain't either. Edwar is higher. McAllister can't be ranked simply. Too much OF and SP depth. Catcher is deep too, but fairly week in the IF.
