The clock is ticking on the Yankees’ front office. Friday is the deadline for the team to protect Rule 5 draft eligible prospects by adding them to the team’s 40-man roster. Doing so will be a tad more challenging this season because the 40-man is currently full, so we could be in for a handful of roster moves over the next 48 hours.
Pinstriped Prospects has the list of all minor leaguers in the organization who are draft eligible. Today, I’ll briefly touch on a bunch of prospects who deserve the most consideration for a roster spot. I’ve included their position, age, highest level reached, and MLB Pipeline ranking if applicable. One final note before getting into the prospect snapshots: pitching prospect Randy Vasquez is not eligible, as we found out Monday.
