Robby Cano,Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge are the only position players that were worth something coming out of the Yankee system these past two decades. I don’t count Gary Sánchez because he was an international signing,but my point is that Cashman’s team has not been very good when it comes to evaluating minor league talent.The Rays are sort of forced to depend on home grown talent, while Cashman has had the safety net of the Steinbrenners’ checkbook.
International signings have to be at least 33% of a team's signings the last decade. I think you'd have to count them.
Most of high profile international signings didn't even reached majors.
Martian hype better be real.
Most players don't make it. What are there, like 10,000 levels of minor league ball, all feeding 25 pro spots each team?
That's counting the international, college, HS players that are signed.
I think Cashman could have done far better with position players, but his track record of having the minor leagues deliver isn't bad. Obviously the farm system got a boost when they flipped Chapman and Miller and it got up into the top 3 for a bit, but even before that it did a decent job of producing some arms and players, if not for the major league club, then in for trades that brought players.
But it's not a runaway success and also, like stated, not great at position players.
I'm not holding my breath on Jasson Dominguez being anything either.
I recall when Yoán Moncada was going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
