Rumor Roundup: An Infield Fix for the Yankees?

1

Daniel Rathman

The Yankees might deal from depth to fix a hole, Brian Dozier wants to stay in Minnesota, and more.

Yankees could trade a catcher for an infielder or reliever
Yes, you read that correctly: The team that gave Chris Stewart 340 plate appearances behind the dish last year now has a surplus at the catcher position. According to George A. King III of the New York Post, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is considering parting with one of his homegrown backstops for depth at a shallower position.

Every farm system in baseball, ordered from best to worst.

1. Minnesota Twins
Farm System Ranking in 2013: 4
2014 Top Ten Prospects: Link
State of the System: No team in baseball can boast the same level of top tier talent on both sides of the ball and impressive depth at every level.
Top Prospect: Byron Buxton (1)
Breakout Candidates for 2014: Lewis Thorpe and Jorge Polanco
Prospects on the BP 101: 8
Must-See Affiliate: Low-A Cedar Rapids
Prospects to See There: Kohl Stewart, Felix Jorge, Stephen Gonsalves, Ryan Eades, Lewis Thorpe
Farm System Trajectory for 2015: Down. It’s hard to stay on top, especially with some of the top talent in the system likely to graduate to the highest level (Sano, Meyer, Pinto)

Prospect Debate: Meyer vs. Stewart

9

Jason Parks and BP Prospect Staff

The prospect team pushes and shoves over which excellent Twins pitching prospect gets the no. 3 spot.

When putting together the Twins’ top prospect list, the first two names required little-to-no thought or debate, as Buxton is a superhero and Sano’s raw power turns scouts into teenaged girls screaming at the Beatles, c. 1964. On my initial list, I ranked Meyer third and recent first-round pick Kohl Stewart fourth, which in turn sparked the following debate about their prospect value and risk factors. Even though Meyer won the spot without much of a fight, the email exchanges did provide plenty of interesting scouting commentary about the two players, and made the reports more comprehensive as a result. This is how the sausage is made.

Ron Shah: Early thought: Stewart over Meyer.
