Who’s the Yankees minor leaguer that will make a name for himself this year?

Luis Severino started to make a name for himself last year (along with 2B Rob Refsnyder). I think Jacob Lindgren will be the popular name in the system this year and he started to make a name for himself late last season. If I had to pick a position player, it’s SS Jorge Mateo. Oozing with talent and tools, Mateo could really explode this season and make a big name for himself in minor league baseball as a whole. I also believe Tyler Austin could be a force next season (if he can avoid injury). He was really turning it on last season after a slow start and I think there’s more to come with him.
