Yankees prospects impress at AFL

Several New York Yankees prospects are participating in the Arizona Fall League in 2021 and some with impressive results. The talent of the farms is something that is becoming more and more important in this modern baseball, where already having many millions, does not guarantee you to be a winning team.

Let’s take a look at the future Yankees who see action on this circuit and find out below, what has been their performance so far:

Austin Wells – Catcher
Wells plays for the Surprise Saguaros team and so far this tournament, he has hit 11 hits in 36 at-bats, with a .306 average, 10 RBIs and one homerun. Austin was also selected as the best player last week in the entire league and is located in position six, among the top 50 talents of the Bronx Bombers. Scouts evaluate him as a very athletic player, as well as possessing a good bat.

Andrés Chaparro – Third base
Do not be guided by the last name, this 6-1 third baseman who weighs 200 pounds does not have anything short. Andrés in this Fall League also with the Surprise Saguaros, is hitting .250, with a homerun and eight brought to the plate, but in the last 14 at-bats, he has hit seven hits and the radars have begun to mark, very high speeds at the that takes the ball this young man born in El Vigía, Venezuela.

Elijah Dunham – Gardener
The 24th prospect on the Yankees’ 50 list is leaving many with their mouths open in Arizona. Not only because of his speed on the bases, in which he has ripped off seven pads in the same number of opportunities he has stolen, but because his wood is on fire. Elijah is hitting .395 with two hits from four corners, a total of 10 teammates brought to the plate, with four doubles, a triple and just two strikeouts in 50 plate appearances.

On the part of the serpentineros, there has really been no one outstanding. Reliever Zach Greene, in four innings has not allowed runs and struck out six, but also fire extinguishers Clay Aguilar, Blaine Abeyta, Harold Cortijo and Tanner Myatt have struggled with their control and have been hit so far in the league. .

Will any of these guys ever wear the Yankees uniform in the majors during the next few seasons? It seems that Wells may be one of the first to get to the big top, since that catcher position remains a question mark for the future of the Bombers.
