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.
