Every Monday, we'll be taking a look at how the Yankees' top prospects (their MLB.com Yankees Top-30 rankings are in parenthesis) are faring.


Deivi Garcia, RHP, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (No. 1, MLB No. 64) -- ETA 2020

In the bullpen for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since Aug. 22, Garcia's continues to adjust. His second appearance came last Monday when he allowed two runs on three hits, a walk and a hit batter while he struck two out on 42 pitches, battling command issues with 24 strikes to 18 balls. Garcia's latest outing and third overall as a reliever occurred last last Friday with mixed results. He surrendered three runs on two hits, including a home run, plus two walks to two strikeouts on 38 pitches -- 21 strikes.

In three games from the 'pen, Garcia has given up six runs on eight hits (two home runs) and sports a 11.57 ERA. However, his swings and misses are still evident of the power arm that made the 20-year-old rise up the Yankees' list of prospects, striking out nine while walking three.

Deivi Garcia has garnered attention from fans and media since the Yankees promoted the RHP to the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, but another arm developing on New York's farm reportedly has folks within the organization buzzing.

From a high-ranking Yankees scout to the franchise's High-A manager, a Wednesday report by Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media details New York's infatuation with RHP Miguel Yajure.

Garcia is nearing a possible promotion to the big leagues, where the Yankees could use him from the bullpen during the team's postseason push from August through October, but Yajure appears to be on his own ascension as he climbs the ladder.

The Yankees top prospect, RHP Deivi Garcia will move to the bullpen for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders for the rest of the season according to Conor Foley of The Times-Tribune in Scranton.

Foley noted that the Yankees have made similar moves like this last season with RHP Chance Adams and LHP Justus Sheffield. This was in preparation for the end of season roles that each player was going to have with the team. Adams pitched in three games last season, going 0-1 with a 7.04 ERA. While Sheffield also pitched in three games, throwing just 2.2 innings and allowing three earned runs on four hits.

Garcia, the No. 64 prospect in the MLB, has struggled in his two most recent starts. He failed to make it through the fifth inning in either game, and allowed two runs in both match-ups. He struck out a total of nine batters and walked four over 8.1 combined innings of work.
