RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A highly coveted asset at the 2015 trade deadline, Mateo was one of four Yankees prospects GM Brian Cashman deemed untouchable. At just 20 years old and never playing above the High-A level, the shortstop has already made a name for himself in the organization, both with his bat and his legs. The 20-year-old swiped 82 bags last season between Low-A and High-A while being caught just 17 times, and he posted an impressive .321/.374/.452 line once being promoted. Didi Gregorius currently poses a potential roadblock to Mateo at short at the big league level, but the youngster doesn't have any minor league experience at any other position in the field. Mateo is still at least a year away from getting his first taste of the big leagues, if not more, but should continue to move up through the organizational ranks in 2016 and could be worth a look in dynasty formats.
