Oh Boy oh Danny Boy

Danienger Perez looks like he has found that all-elusive consistency. The 20-year old SS has shown flashes of ability every year in the system, batting .444 in a brief tryout with Staten Island his first year and .271 for his half season in the GCL last year.

And although he only batted .250 with Staten Island earlier this year, it was enough to get him promoted to Pulaski. Here, at his highest level, he is once again showing his skills.

Perez is batting .333/.435/.462 with thirteen hits, six walks, seven RBI’s, and seven runs scored. Danny is filling up all the columns. Again, it is small sample size, and he has a lot of work just to crack the Yankees top 30, but it’s all we got. And he looks better than most of the other 2014 international prospects.

I doubt he ever becomes an elite prospect, but he might end up a role player or trade piece if he keeps working. The Yankees, though, have higher hopes for the last player on our list.
