Which 4 prospects did Yankees lose in Rule 5 Draft?

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Yankees ' farm system has taken a small, but mostly expected, hit.

The team lost four prospects to the major-league phase of the Rule 5 Draft at the 2017 MLB Winter Meetings at the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort on Thursday morning.

Some within the Yankees organization see Cortes, a starting pitcher, as a potential Vidal Nuno-type -- a soft-tossing lefty who works the strike zone and pitches to weak contact.

Ford, a Princeton graduate and N.J. native, hit .266 with seven homers and 21 RBI in 25 games at Triple-A last year.

In the Triple-A phase, they lose righty Yancarlos Baez (Twis) and catcher Sharif Othman (Marlins).
