Anthony Volpe

The Martian isn’t No. 1… or 2.

The World Series was extended for at least one more game on Sunday night, but both New York teams are already in postseason mode.

On Monday, Baseball America dropped their rankings of the top ten prospects in the New York Yankees organization. And there’s at least one surprise in the list: Jasson Dominguez isn’t in the top two.

For most scouting services, shortstop Anthony Volpe has been the Yankees’ top prospect for most of 2021. He remains there in the BA update. But who else made their top ten list?

Here’s how Baseball America ranked the Yankees’ top ten prospects at the close of the 2021 baseball year. What do you think?

  1. Anthony Volpe, SS
