Oswald Peraza Could Be The Favorite To Start At ShortJanuary 25, 2023 | 07:23 PM
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, manager Aaron Boone and owner Hal Steinbrenner have said to expect a spring training shortstop competition between incumbent Isiah Kiner-Falefa and top prospects Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe, but the feeling around the organization is that Peraza might enter camp in the lead. He's ranked No. 62 on Baseball America's top-100 prospect list and impressed at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and during a September call-up. Peraza has more offensive upside than Kiner-Falefa, who hit just four homers and struggled on defense. Volpe is New York's top prospect, but he has only 22 games at Triple-A under his belt and could use some more seasoning.
