If you’re looking for the Minor League Players of the Month in June, go here. If you’re looking for the Minor League Players of the Week, you’re in the right spot.

Minor League Players of the Week:

Pitcher:
Hector Noesi, 23, RHP, AA
14.0 IP, 7 K, 2 BB, 9 H, 1 ER

Previous Wins: Week(s): 1, 5, 8, 10 – Month(s): May

I’m running out of superlatives Noesi. Simply put, he’s having a really good season and is establishing himself as a top prospect in the Yankee organization. If you want something more substantial than that, check out the links above.

Position Player:
Gary Sanchez, 17, RHB C, Rookie
.588/.682/.824 in 22 PAs

Sanchez’s immediate production already has some people declaring him the 25th best prospect in baseball. While that’s a bit ambitious of a ranking, there’s no denying the massive potential of the 6’2” Dominican backstop. In his ten game stint in the Gulf Coast League, he’s displayed a power-patience combo (isoP: .325, BB%: 13.6) that you don’t find in many seventeen-year olds.

There was a reason why, when Gary was only sixteen, the Yankees paid three million dollars for his services. Most of those reasons are found on the GCL’s leaderboards, where the name “Gary Sanchez” can be seen at the top of the league in batting average (.459), on-base percentage (.545), slugging percentage (.784), OPS (1.329), and runs batted in (12). He’s not going to keep up numbers at this level (since nobody on Earth can), but who cares? The kid is just erasing opposing pitchers.

The really scary thing is, in spite of how young he is, Sanchez looks like he could have started the year in Charleston and not missed a beat.
