The Yankees will see their bright stars of tomorrow take on the Blue Jays on March 16th, and since it’s taking place at George M. Steinbrenner Field, that means there will be full Statcast coverage. It’ll be our first look at some of these players with Statcast, as most of them play at MiLB levels with incomplete or no feeds to capture velocity, movement, spin, and other variables. As for the roster the Yankees will have in this contest, it’s jam-packed with talent up and down the organization: (Rankings via @RyanGarciaESM on Twitter, link here)

It’ll be headlined by players like Spencer Jones, who have been remarkable thus far in Spring Training, but it’ll also be important to keep tabs on some of the youngest prospects in the organization. Roderick Arias and George Lombard Jr. are two teenage phenoms that the Yankees have in their organization with massive upside, with arms like Henry Lalane and Carlos Lagrange coming from the Florida Complex League as well. There’s plenty of prospect power in this contest, with the Yankees also giving us a look at who they value most.

Game time for this event is 4:05 PM Eastern Time, and will again take place on March 16th as part of the four-day event across both the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues, and it should be plenty of fun.
