Baseball America released their Midseason Top 100 Prospects list and, once again, the New York Yankees prospects are dominating.
The New York Yankees don’t need reassurance that their farm system is one of the best in the game. However, sometimes it’s nice to hear it.
Happy Friday! We've got a new Top 100 Prospects to celebrate the end of the week!https://t.co/7x32Lt3LKk

With all the freak injuries that have happened and the Yankees recent skid, I’ll still take it.
With Boston Red Sox superstar Yoan Moncada perched in the top spot once again, Gleyber Torres is the first Yankee to make the list, sitting at No. 3. Dropping one spot from the last list, Torres’ current injury is keeping him from turning that prospect status into a superstar at the Major League level.
Regardless, Torres went on a tear since arriving in Triple-A Scranton this year, posting a .309/.406/.457 line and exciting Yankees fans.
Outfielder Blake Rutherford moved up spot, securing the 36th spot on the list with his impressive play at Low-A Charleston this season.
Clint Frazier is the third Yankee prospect to crack the Top 50 at No. 48. Frazier is currently strutting his stuff with the Yankees but will likely get sent back down to get more playing time once Aaron Hicks returns from his DL stint.
Right handed pitcher Chance Adams makes his debut on this list, ranking at No. 56. After tearing up Double-A Trenton to start the season, he has since been the ace of the Triple-A staff, going 6-2 with a 2.39 ERA.
Dustin Fowler rounds out the list for the Yankees by claiming the 89th spot. Fowler, who suffered a freak injury in his major league debut, looks to return in full force next season.
Well, there you have it. Of all the prospects the Yankees have, seven of them are on this list. And that is pretty darn impressive.
You might want to wear shades, Yankees fans. The future looks incredibly bright for this organization.
