We've heard from Keith Law and now we have another take on the top 100 prospects in baseball. Scout.com has released their list and this time three Yankees are on the list. Luis Severino, who was left off of Law's list, is the 51st best prospect in baseball. Aaron Judge is on the list at no. 57 and Greg Bird, in his first year as a top-100 prospect, just makes the list at no. 96. Severino ranks as the 23rd-best pitching prospect, Judge the 14th-best outfielder, and Bird the 3rd-best first baseman in baseball. While he doesn't make the top-100 list, Eric Jagielo ranks as the 13th-best third baseman as well.
While Judge and Bird might rank lower than they did on Law's list, it's worth mentioning that only the most elite prospects have a consensus surrounding them. This is just another person's opinion on 100 young players that are going to be difficult to project over the course of the next few years. It might be better to consider that it doesn't exactly matter where you rank, as long as you're on the list. It's also nice to see Jagielo get some recognition, even if many think he's been a disappointment to this point.
That being said though, and just for fun, here are some prominent prospects that rank below the Yankee trio: Rob Kaminsky, the guy many people linked to the Yankees for the 2013 draft; notable prospects Colin Moran, Brandon Finnegan (the guy who pitched in the College World Series and the MLB World Series), Cuban free agent Yoan Lopez, Tim Anderson, Brandon Nimmo, Austin Hedges, and former first overall pick Mark Appel all rank below Severino and Judge. Trea Turner, who was recently traded to the Nationals, is a few spots under Severino. None of this means anything, but it's just nice to see someone who thinks the Yankees have something better than what many people around baseball have hyped up.
