TGP Top 10 Yankees Prospects List


On the eve of Baseball America releasing their annual top 10 list of every teams prospects I wanted to release what, in my opinion, is our 10 best prospects heading into the 2013 season. Agree, disagree, or feel like I am totally off my rocker because of my huge man crush on Tyler Austin if you want but here is the list.

1. Tyler Austin 
2. Mason Williams 
3. Gary Sanchez
4. Slade Heathcott
5. David Adams
6. Jose Campos
7. Manny Banuelos
8. Brett Marshall
9. Corban Joseph
10. Mark Montgomery

No one in my opinion did more to garner the top spot then Tyler Austin. Starting out in Low A Charleston and finishing in the playoffs with AA Trenton is no easy feat. His biggest concerns going into 2012 were his power numbers and subsequently his position due to the power, or lack their of. Austin moved to the outfield where he conveniently started out his career and found his groove in right field along with the power stroke the Yankees were hoping for. Mason Williams getting hurt kept him from the top spot in my opinion after the shoulder surgery that ended his season prematurely. Mark Montgomery probably could have been higher but as a reliever only I find it hard to see him on many peoples top 10 lists.
