Two Yankees Minor Leaguers Named to Appy League Top 20

Luis Medina (Bryan Green)

Baseball America released their annual Appalachian League Top 20 Prospects list and two Yankees prospects were selected as top prospects in the rookie league.  Right-handed pitchers Luis Medina and Deivi Garcia of the Pulaski Yankees were named the #6 and #15 prospects in the league.

Media, 18, was 1-1 with a 5.09 ERA in six games for the Pulaski Yankees.  The right-hander has earned some comparisons to current Bronx Bomber Luis Severino.  He has a high-90s fastball, curveball, and a changeup.

Garcia, 18, faired a little bit better than Medina in 2017.  He was 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA in six games and struck out 43 batters in 28 innings pitched.  Unlike Medina, he throws in the low-90s and finds success with a plus curveball.
