Here’s someone in the Yankees chain that we should start to keep an eye on…Staten Island Yankee Justin Snyder…who keeps getting on…as his on-base percentage is a league-leading .488 and he leads the league in hitting at .375.
Snyder was drafted out of the University of San Diego in the 21st round of this year’s draft.
Primarily a third baseman earlier in the season, he’s moved to second base and center field before settling in at shortstop recently.
Baseball America ranked him as the 191st best overall prospect coming into the 2007 draft and thinks he profiles best at either second or center field in the majors.
We might be seeing him in the Bronx around 2010.
