Yankees Minor League Links Dec. 28

Cool video from MiLB.com about Arizona Fall League (AFL), including an interview with Yankees prospect David Phelps.

A full Yankees AFL report.

Full interview with David Phelps from AFL.

Rob Segedin interview during the AFL.

An article about the pitchers of the postseason in the minors, including Matt Tracy of Staten Island.  They also had hitters of the postseason and Tyler Austin was selected, also of Staten Island.

Seedlings to Stars, a great blog about minor leaguers, is doing a top 100 prospect list.  They are currently at #10.  The Yankees that have appeared so far on this list are Gary Sanchez, #17, Manny Banuelos, #26,  Jesus Montero, #42, Dellin Betances, #88.   I don't foresee any other Yankees making the list but will let you know if they do.  This list is a little surprising as they are not very high on Montero, mostly due to their thought that he is not a catcher.  I think I would have switched Montero and Sanchez as I am much more sold on Montero at this point, since Sanchez in incredibly raw at this point.  Especially with Montero's impressive showing in the bigs at the end of last season, this ranking seems quite low.  The two pitchers are right about where I would expect.  I am also considerably higher on Banuelos then Betances but I think both have a chance to make an impact as early as next season.
