Greedy Pinstripes Top 28 Prospects List: #8

Prospects Month is in full swing and we're already up to our 8th best prospect in the farm system, Ian Clarkin.  Clarkin I think could be the future in the Yankees starting rotation from the left side. I am thinking the next CC Sabathia in his prime or Andy Pettitte. I could be over-hyping him but I think that highly of him. 

Here is the write up from Kyle McDaniel on Clarkin:

Ian Clarkin, LHP Video: Clarkin doesn’t have the typical projectable frame of most 1st round prep arms, but he has more feel and current stuff than his peers. After going 33rd overall in 2013, Clarkin had a nice full season debut in 2014, working 90-93 and hitting 95 mph, with an above average to plus curveball and a changeup that drastically improved to now regularly flash average. There’s 3rd/4th starter upside here and there’s reason to optimistic as Clarkin is young for his level and is getting results and ground balls due to above average stuff and feel.
