The long-awaited September call-up of top Yankees hitting prospect, Jesus Montero has finally come. Joe Girardi has slotted him in the lineup tonight against Boston Red Sox as the designated hitter. It’s will be interesting to see Jorge Posada’s reaction to being pulled off the playoff roster if Montero puts on a clinic this September.

Montero will be donning the No. 63 on his uniform.

A bit late on this, but Baseball America has released the New York Yankees Top 10 Prospects for 2011. And here it is:

1. Jesus Montero
2. Gary Sanchez
3. Dellin Betances
4. Manny Banuelos
5. Andrew Brackman
6. Austin Romine
7. Hector Noesi
8. Eduardo Nunez
9. Slade Heathcott
10. Brandon Laird

No real surprises on the list. Montero ranking #1 makes sense, considering he could very well be holding the starting catcher position out of Spring Training at the start of next season. As you can tell by the list, some prospects have made considerable improvements. Sanchez (#7 in ’10) and Brackman (#10 in ’10) have moved up the ranks. The thing that has to catch your eye is Dellin Betances ranking #3 on this list. It just shows how good of a year he’s had, considering he was left off the top 10 list all together in 2010.

With Zach McAllister and Arodys Vizcaino leaving the team, it opened up some new spots for other propsects. New additions to this year’s list include: Noesi, Nunez and Laird.   (more…)

     Keith Law just released a list of the Top 100 Prospects in baseball. There is a total of three Yankees on the list. They are Austin Jackson #46, Jesus Montero #83, & Andrew Brackman #95. Dellin Betances just missed the list..

His reasoning for not putting Dellin on the list:

Dellin Betances, RHP, New York Yankees: Betances has a great frame and big fastball, but poor command and control and iffy secondary stuff hold him back. He’s all upside, but there’s a lot of development between where he is now and where he could be if it all clicks.
