Stock rising : Yankees hitting prospects making big strides

Starting from Triple-A and moving down, here are the position player prospects who have made the most progress since 2019 when they last played in the minors. Many of these players are still sleepers, but they won’t be for much longer if this success continues. 1. Trey Amburgey – OF, 26-years-old – Amburgey did make big progress in 2019, where he finished with 22 homeruns and an .822 OPS. The start he is off to puts that line to shame though.

Trevor Hauver was not a mystery, but as a third round pick he wasn't the talk of the town either.  Hauver played outfield in college, mainly because he was buried behind some major talent in the Arizona State infield. To his credit, he took to it nicely and can now play outfield too. The Yankees believe Hauver is best suited at second base, which is why they have him there to start the season. He has a so-so arm so his options are limited to second, left field, or first base. He will likely play all three
