Look who's farm system is ranked #1!!!

Farm System Update

The emergence of Gleyber Torres during the Arizona Fall League cemented the New York Yankees place at No. 1 on this list, otherwise, the Atlanta Braves might have unseated them.

Torres hit a ridiculous .403/.513/.645 with more walks (14) than strikeouts (8) to claim AFL MVP honors and, he just turned 20 years old last month.

If there was any question who the better middle infield prospect was between Torres and incumbent Jorge Mateo at the time of the Aroldis Chapman trade, they've vanished.

Justus Sheffield still takes top billing among the team's pitching prospect, but a strong late-season return from elbow issues and an impressive showing in the AFL has James Kaprielian nipping at his heels.

While Aaron Judge has some work to do on his approach after striking out a dizzying 42 times in 95 plate appearances in the majors last season, he still qualifies as a Tier 1 prospect thanks to his huge power potential.

There's a lot to like about a future outfield of Judge, Clint Frazier and Blake Rutherford.
