Gleyber Torres is something else.  So is Estevan Florial.  Baseball America ranked 10 Yankee prospects and Torres and Florial are 1 and 2.

Here's Baseball America:

SNY writes this about our boys:

"Torres, who was ranked Baseball America's No. 3 overall prospect in its midseason top-100 list, was limited to 55 games with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery last spring.

A 20-year-old shortstop with 15 games at third base and 18 games at second base, Torres hit .287/.383/.480 with seven home runs and 34 RBIs last year. He entered last season having been ranked's No. 3 prospect, Baseball America's No. 5 prospect and Baseball Prospectus' No. 15 prospect.

Florial, 20, hit .298/.372/.479 with 13 home runs, 57 RBIs and 23 stolen bases in 110 games for Low-A Charleston and High-A Tampa in 2017. Baseball America considers him to be the best athlete in the organization, as it says he is the fastest baserunner and has the best arm among outfielders."

I can't wait to see these kids up in the Bigs. I'm especially excited about Sheffield.
