6. Wilkerman Garcia, SS, 17, Signed in July 2014 out of Venezuela for $1.35 million

Garcia is young. I mean he does not turned 18 until April young. Garcia held his own in his first season of rookie ball, posting a .414 OBP. He was the seventh-ranked international player when the Yankees signed him and he appears to be a worthwhile investment for the Yankees. Obviously it is early in his development and he probably will not reach the big leagues for another couple seasons. If he continues to develop he has the potential to be an impact player in the coming years.
