Grading the Performance of New York Yankees' Top Prospects at Spring Training
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

As shown by their massive spending spree this offseason, the New York Yankees retool through free agency and not through their minor league system.

However, it is hard to know if they do that by choice or if they are forced to by a lack of organizational depth.

Entering the season, ESPN.com's Keith Law (subscription required) ranked the Yankees farm system 20th in MLB. That rank is mainly because they lack any big league-ready players.

That couldn't have been made any clearer than this spring when only six players currently ranked in the Yankees' top 20 prospects, according to MLB.com, saw any time in camp.

Three other top prospects, Slade Heathcott, Tyler Austin and Jose Ramirez were at camp but didn't see any action due to injuries.

In this slideshow, I'll focus on those six individuals that saw action and grade them not just on their statistical impact but will look at longevity in camp and other credentials such as teammates and coaching support.
