The Next Yankee on the list was third baseman Miguel Andujar at #15. The 22-year old had 227 at-bats in the league and hit for a .317/.364/.502 slash line. While he excelled at the plate, he still has some troubles in the field, committing 17 errors in 115 games.
Following him is outfielder Clint Frazier at #16. Frazier, 23, hit .256/.344/.473 in 273 at-bats with the RailRiders. On July 1, he was promoted to the big leagues and made his MLB debut with the Yankees. In 33 games, 123 at-bats, in the bigs he is hitting .236/.269/.455.
