TGP Prospects Month Top 29 Prospects List - #28

Yesterday we kicked off Prospect Month and we kicked off our reveal of the Top 29 (or 30 if you read the article) Prospects List like we do every day of Prospects Month. Today will be no different as we take the next step towards the top with the #28 prospect in the Yankees system, Mr. Austin DeCarr. DeCarr was drafted in the 2014 MLB First Year Players Draft out of Salisbury Prep School. DeCarr decided to head to the Prep School rather than college after undergoing a surgery on his elbow to remove bone spurs and thought it would be the best case scenario for himself and his future, seems like it worked out well for him.

DeCarr is another one of those big framed pitchers the Yankees love to draft standing at 6'3" and weighing in at 220 lbs. DeCarr uses that big body to throw in the 92-94 MPH range and can touch 96 when he has to. DeCarr also has a power curveball and a changeup, albeit raw at this point. You have to expect some control and command issues, especially with secondary pitches, with "high school" pitchers though but it was good enough for DeCarr to land on our Top Prospects list at the #28 position.

28. Austin DeCarr
29. Thairo Estrada
30. James Pazos

DeCarr was much higher on the list but as you can see by the stat line the righty missed the 2015 season due to injury. DeCarr is finally deemed healthy after having Tommy John surgery in 2014 and should be back sometime in 2016 as he looks to climb back to the top of this list.
