The future of the Yankees looks promising | Mike Stobe / .
If the present of the New York Yankees is encouraging for their fans, what to say about the future. The organization has several players under the age of 25 on which it builds solid foundations.
1. Gleyber Torres
The Venezuelan infielder is already looming as the next star of the Yankees. At 23 years old, Torres led the club in home runs in 2019 (38) and was the leader in the divisional series. There are those who postulate him as captain.
2. Miguel Andújar
Many see him outside the club, but Andújar is a valuable piece | Michael Reaves / .
The Dominican has just turned 25, but he remains one of the most promising players in the Bronx. So much so, that they look for him as a place in the lineup despite having lost the ownership in the anteroom.
3. Deivi García
Along with teenager Jasson Domínguez, García is the jewel of the Yankees’ farms. Before the special situation for COVID-19, the 21-year-old pitcher was expected to make his major league debut this season.
4. Estevan Florial
Florial is in the future plans of the Yankees | Mark Brown / .
Another Dominican. This outfielder has not been developing as fast as expected, but he is still in the future plans of the Yankees. At 22 years old, he is the organization’s sixth best prospect and was invited to training camp.
5. Clarke Schmidt
Another in the top 3 of New York farms, the 24-year-old right-hander was assigned to affiliate AA, awaiting the call to debut in the majors. He was the 16th choice of the 2017 Draft and is projected as the future ace of the Yankees’ rotation.
