Baseball today unveiled its ranking of the Yankee prospects. This is their criteria:

Baseball America’s Top 10 Prospects lists are based on projections of a player’s long-term worth after discussions with scouting and player-development personnel. All players who haven’t exceeded the major league rookie standards of 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched (without regard to service time) are eligible.

This is their list:

1. Austin Jackson
2. Jesus Montero
3. Andrew Brackman
4. Austin Romine
5. Dellin Betances
6. Zach McAllister
7. Alfredo Aceves
8. Phil Coke
9. Mark Melancon
10. Bradley Suttle

I don’t see Melancon behind Aceves and Coke, but I can’t much quibble with their list otherwise. If you’re a subscriber, Jon Manuel is doing a chat on the list at 2:30 p.m. today.
