2012 New York Yankees Consensus Top 33 Prospects


I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.

Two of the lists were not updated to account for the Michael Pineda/Jesus Montero/Jose Campos trade. In order to account for this, I found Campos’s average ranking from the rest of the lists and ranked him there on the two lists that missed him. The points are still added up in the same way as before.

I included another column to the table named “Con. Rank,” which is the consensus overall ranking of each prospect, as compiled by me.
