Ohtani who? Yankees Rookie Phenom Gleyber Torres making his case for ROY

Give credit to the Yankee front office; the Yankees have arguably the best present and future out of any team in baseball. Brian Cashman and his crew turned around the farm system seemingly overnight, producing the Baby Bombers we’ve grown to love. The past three years the Yankees have trotted out Rookie of the year caliber players, Gary Sanchez was runner-up in 2016, Aaron Judge was the unanimous winner in 2017, and Gleyber Torres is making his case in 2018.

Domingo Acevedo and Estevan Florial named to the Futures Game World roster



While the Major League All-Star rosters have yet to be announced, Major League Baseball released the rosters for the annual Futures Game on Thursday. The Yankees will have two representatives on the World roster. RHP Domingo Acevedo and outfielder Estevan Florial are the two players that have been chosen.

Acevedo, 23, has pitched to a 3.16 ERA across three levels this season and was ranked eighth on the BBB’s preseason prospect power rankings. Acevedo’s electric fastball and upside will make him an exciting pitcher to watch in the game.

Florial, 19, was not among the Yankees’ top prospects prior to this season, but has been enjoying a breakout 2017. For Class-A Charleston, Florial is batting .310 with 30 extra base-hits. Florial is a Haitian native, and can also swipe bags as he has already taken 13 this season. He is one of lesser known names on the roster, but is deserving nonetheless.
