3. Aaron Judge
2. Gary Sanchez
1. Gleyber Torres
The top three bring all pinstripes. Should this list rank them as “best overall players,” Aaron Judge would be No. 1. His stats alone from a year ago put him at that spot. Gary Sanchez would probably fall in-line with Giancarlo Stanton somewhere with Jacob deGrom rivaling all three.
But forget that nonsense. This is a most valuable “asset” list and Gleyer Torres is the most valuable asset across all five boroughs.
He’s 21-years-old and has already tallied nine home runs and 27 runs batted in while hitting .317 over the course of his first 35 games in The Show. Couple that with the fact he’s been, arguably, baseball’s top prospect for the last few seasons and the value is absurd.
The Yankees fleeced the Cubbies for his services.
Sanchez receives the nod over Judge for two reasons. One, he’s a tad younger and two and more importantly, he plays catcher.
From a top 25 standpoint, 13 Yanks and 12 Mets made the list. It’s a tad surprising considering how much more quality and depth the Bronx team brings to the table. If the top 50 was analyzed, forget about it … the Yankees would reign supreme.
