Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

A mature prospect who'll be 28 (or so) later this year, Cuban Yadil Mujica is a contact hitter with plus speed, good range and a plus arm from shortstop. In his last year in Cuba, he hit .358/.432/.440, an average good enough for twelfth-best in the league (modern Cuban baseball is hitter-friendly, which might explain why so few Cuban pitchers stick in MLB.)
In the Yanks' AA system last year, Mujica scraped out a commendable .294/.273/.567 line, stole a few bases and knocked a home run. That's awfully good for a first turn in US pro ball, of course, but age isn not on his side, so he'll need to do a bit better in 2012 if he's going to have a future in MLB.
