Hi, what are you looking for?

The Yankees will find a spot for Jorge Mateo in 2019. (Bryan Green)


Weekly Prospect RoundUp: November 10, 2014

First off is Baseball Prospectus Mark Anderson who had a chat and talked about Jorge Mateo

Dave (Des Moines): Jorge Mateo was recently ranked the 3rd best prospect in the Yankees system by another prospect site. Do you believe in him as much as they apparently do??

Mark Anderson: I’ve gotten some intriguing reports on Mateo, but nothing that would lead me to believe he’s an explosive prospect that warrants serious attention near the top of the Yankees list. That’s just me though….


Next up is a smorgasbord of stuff from Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs.  He had a chat, podcast and an article that all talked about Yankee prospects or minor leagues.


Comment From j
Saw on Twitter that your grade on Aaron Judge has gone progressively higher as the season has gone along. Possible 60 FV for you or not yet?

Kiley McDaniel: Probably 55, but might be 60. My guess on the day he was drafted as to what my grade would be this offseason was 45.


Comment From Derek
Kiley, in your opinion which AFL prospects have the best raw power from the Right Side/Left Side? I’ve been impressed by Renfroe’s ability in BP to use his lower half and drive the ball with authority.

Kiley McDaniel: RH Judge is 70 and LH Moya is 70. Renfroe is a 60 for me, but he’s really tapping into it in games, so the game power isn’t far behind Judge, who is still learning to do that.

Comment From the real brian
Which Dredd is Aaron Judge; the original or the remake?

Kiley McDaniel: I thought the remake was much better, so I’ll go with Karl Urban


Comment From The Big Dipper
Is Aaron Judge a star?

Kiley McDaniel: Slow down the hype train


Comment From Jack
What are your thoughts on Greg Bird? Future 1b for the Yanks?

Kiley McDaniel: Trending up. 60 raw, feel to hit with feel for strike zone and at least avg defender. Scout gave me a healthy Nick Johnson comp two years ago and that still might be what he is


And because I wrote about Moncada last week here is something on him from McDaniels

Comment From Dan
Any idea where Moncada could fall on the top prospects list?

Kiley McDaniel: We’ll end with the player on most scouting exec’s lips right now. He’s gonna get a lot of money and we should know much more after his workout next week, since no one has seen him play in awhile. From what I’m told, he should be top 10 on a prospect list


This is a great read on what the Yankees are doing with minor league free agents


Finally listen to the podcast that McDaniels and Carson Cistulli

This podcast has a lot of great stuff on Judge and Bird.  It’s all in the first 10 minutes too so take a listen.
