As the 2024 baseball season unfolds, the New York Yankees’ farm system is bustling with activity and potential. The focus on developing homegrown talent has never been more evident, with the organization’s top 30 prospects scattered across various levels of play, from Single-A Tampa to the bright lights of New York City. This year, these young talents are starting their seasons in a bid to climb the ranks and, for some, make their mark in the Major Leagues.

From Somerset to Scranton, prospects are on the move

Among the Yankees’ prospect pool, notable names are embarking on their 2024 campaigns with aspirations of making significant strides. Jasson Domínguez, an outfielder ranked No. 40 in MLB’s top 100, begins his season on the injured list, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Despite the setback, his talent and previous stint in the majors underscore his potential to impact the Yankees once healthy.

Double-A Somerset boasts a concentration of the Yankees’ future stars, with eight of the top 30 prospects assigned there. Spencer Jones, an outfielder who combines power and speed, is among the most watched. His impressive 2023 season, highlighted by 16 home runs and 43 steals, positions him as a player to watch closely. Alongside Jones, pitcher Brock Selvidge and catcher/first baseman Ben Rice, who exhibited a potent mix of batting average and power last season, are set to continue their upward trajectory.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Single-A Tampa are also crucial starting points for prospects like Everson Pereira and Roderick Arias, demonstrating the depth and spread of talent within the Yankees’ system.

Here’s the entire list of the Yankees’ top 30 prospects:

Which Yankees prospect will make it to New York?

The journey from the minors to the major leagues is fraught with challenges, but several Yankees prospects stand on the cusp of breaking through. Jasson Domínguez, despite his recent injury, has already tasted major league action and is expected to return to New York once fully fit. His brief but impactful stint with the Yankees last September, featuring four homers in eight games, has fans eagerly anticipating his comeback.

Spencer Jones and Everson Pereira are also on the shortlist of players who might make their way to the Bronx in 2024. Jones, with his notable power and speed, and Pereira, who made 26 starts in the big leagues last season, have shown they possess the talent to contribute at the highest level.

Right-hander Will Warren, stationed just a step away in Triple-A, emerges as the system’s top healthy pitching prospect. His proximity to the majors and his promising skill set suggest that he could be called up to provide depth and quality to the Yankees’ pitching rotation. What do you think?
