Justus Sheffield Ranks in The Top 10 LHP in Baseball

MLB Pipeline continues to unveil their ranking of the top minor league prospects in all of baseball and Justus Sheffield is among the top left-handed pitchers in the game.  The 5-foot 10-inch, 195-pound lefty joined the Yankees organization this season as part of the Andrew Miller trade.

With the Yankees Sheffield was able to get his first taste of Double-A after earning a 3-1 record and a 1.73 ERA in five games for the Tampa Yankees.  Combined he went 10-6 with a 3.09 ERA in 25 games, 125 1/3 innings with three different teams in 2016.

The young lefty is among the Yankees top prospects, easily ranking in the Top 10 on almost every list.  He possesses a fastball that has reached as high as 96 miles per hour as well as a curve and changeup.  This season he will likely return to Double-A with the Trenton Thunder.
