With 57% of the vote, our readers were clear and outfielder Ryder Green is the 2019 Pinstriped Prospects Pulaski Yankees Player of the Year.  Green beat out Ken Waldichuk who was in second place with 36% of the vote.

The 19-year-old Green impressed many in spring training and in the Appalachian League.  In 61 games for the Pulaski Yankees, he hit .262/.343/.444 with 15 doubles, a triple, and eight home runs.  He also drove in 28 runs and walked 25 times while also stealing 10 bases.

By all accounts, Green’s season was a success.  He lowered his K% from 36.8% in 2018 with the Gulf Coast League Yankees to 26.4% in 2019, his BABIP rose from .302 in 2018 to .338 in 2019, and his wRC+ went from 101 in 2018 to 117 in 2019.

Green lead all of the Yankees short-season hitters in doubles and was tied for third in home runs along with Maikol Escotto, Madison Santos, and Saul Torres.  He was known as a strong power bat when drafted out of high school and has demonstrated that ability in the Appalachian League in 2019.
