Greedy Pinstripes Top 28 Prospects List: #12

Prospects Month is in full swing and we're already up to our 12th best prospect in the farm system, Bryan Mitchell. Mitchell is knocking on the door in the Bronx and is ready to get his first real shot and opportunities in the 2015 season.

Here is the write up from Kyle McDaniel on Mitchell:

Bryan Mitchell, RHP Video: Mitchell has been maddeningly inconsistent with his feel and command, but got a cup of coffee in 2014 and looks ready to contribute in the big leagues in some way. Mitchell reminds me of Chris Tillman and that’s the 3rd/4th starter upside you’re hoping for here. Mitchell sits 92-94 and will run it up to 98 mph at times, with a knockout curveball that’s plus when he stays on top of it and a cutter and changeup that are both average at times.  He’s becoming more of a pitcher rather than thrower and could become a starter, but also has the stuff to break into the big leagues as a late inning reliever.

12. Bryan Mitchell
13. Miguel Andujar
14. Eric Jagielo
15. Jake Cave
16. Austin DeCarr
17. Tyler Wade
18. Juan DeLeon
19. Dante Bichette Jr.
20. Domingo German
21. Slade Heathcott
22. Nick Rumbelow
23. Jose Ramirez
24. Ramon Flores
25. Gosuke Katoh
26. Chasen Shreve
27. Taylor Dugas

28. Johnny Barbato


  1. I know you're pretty high on Mitchell. Not saying I'm not, but I think Jagielo and Andujar should both be higher than Mitchell.

    1. Mitchell is MLB ready. Jagielo hasn't made it to Double-A yet and neither had Andujar. For a polished college player the fact that Jagielo finished the season in Tampa hurts him a lot more than it helps him, 18 home runs or not.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
