Two Yankees Pitching Prospects Who Are Primed For Success In 2022
New York Yankees pitching prospect Hayden Wesneski attended Sam Houston State University and got drafted in the sixth round in the 2019 Draft. Wesneski still lives in Houston, and he has a great circuit of Minor League and Major League talent to train with down there. This past season, Wesneski rose through the Yankees’ system quickly, starting in High-A with the Hudson Valley Renegades and ending his season in Triple-A. He started 24 games and put together an impressive season. Wesneski pitched to a 3.25 ERA with 151 strikeouts in 130 1/3 innings. Wesneski is the No. 8 prospect and the third-ranked pitching prospect in the Yankees’ farm system.
