Greenville’s Nick Yorke cracks Baseball America Top 100 prospects
The 2020 first-round pick has been enjoying his first full season in the Sox minor league system.
On Tuesday, Baseball America has ranked Yorke No. 99 on their list of Top 100 prospects in the game.
Here is what Baseball America has to say about Yorke:
One of biggest wild cards of the 2020 draft has come up aces for the Red Sox. In his first season as a pro, Yorke has showed as-advertised hittability and burgeoning power. Combined, his tools have carried him through the lower levels of the minor leagues and opened the eyes of evaluators along the way.
Yorke now joins three other Red Sox prospects on the list. Triston Casas (19), Jarren Duran (21) and Marcelo Mayer (30) on Baseball America’s list. Duran, is currently with the Red Sox and had the game winning hit in the top of the ninth on Wednesday night over the Rays.
