Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders
Ben Gamel

In a crowded and talent-laded outfield Ben Gamel has impressed. Coming into the season not much was expected from the former 10th round draft pick who was surprisingly given the Triple-A assignment ahead of Taylor Dugas. So far this season Ben is showing the Yankees they made the right decision. He got off to a hot start for the RailRiders, where he went 23-for-60 over a 17-game span in the month of April for an average of .383. Over that span he had three doubles, four triples, a homerun and nine runs batted in while walking seven times. [/nextpage]

Class-A Charleston RiverDogs
Abiatal Avelino

It only took 20 games for the talented infield prospect to earn a promotion to the next level as he is now with the Tampa Yankees but for the month of April Abiatal Avelino was the top player for the Charleston RiverDogs. In those 20 games he hit .301 with 8 dobules, 4 RBIs, 5 walks and an amazing 16 stolen bases. His stolen base total was only outdone by fellow Yankees prospect Jorge Mateo.[/nextpage]
