Sure. Player. But not prospect. Most long term Major Leaguers are in the Majors by age 24.
Yorman needs to be more selective. But he also isn't a guy who is defensively limited to the extreme right side of the spectrum. Right now, he can still play center field. He may eventually grow out of it and find himself limited to right, which dings his damage. But Soto is absolutely limited to first base. Lutz has a chance to play left, though he has plenty of work to do out there still before he can stick. If he can't do that, he has to play first. That makes him a bench player because his bat isn't good enough to start at first base.
Yorman has more work to do, but he is 4 years younger and has a lot more wiggle room in his development.
