Yankees Top 10 Prospects Without Jackson and Vizcaino

The Yankees have lost three of their top prospects this offseason when they included Austin Jackson in a deal for Curtis Granderson and Arodys Vizcaino and Michael Dunn for Javier Vazquez. Thanks to Marc Hulet over at FanGraphs let’s take a look at what their top 10 prospects look like now:

1. Jesus Montero C
2. Austin Romine C
3. Zach McAllister RHP
4. Manny Banuelos LHP
5. Mark Melancon RHP
6. Corban Joseph 2B
7. Kevin De Leon OF
8. Andrew Brackman RHP
9. DJ Mitchell RHP
10. Jeremy Bleich LHP

Bleich and Mitchell were the most recent pair added to the list with Brackman barely making the list thanks to the Tiger’s deal. Some of the names on this list are a little underwhelming, but it would be quite an accomplished farm system that could absorb three loses and come out looking great.

Players like Slade Heathcott, JR Murphy, and Gary Sanchez are reasons to be optimistic. All three were plugged into the system during the past year and have the tools to rise quickly through the system. Pitchers Dellin Betances and Brett Marshall are two others who, once they fully recover from Tommy John surgery, could become much stronger prospects.

    Is Juan Miranda still considered a prospect?

    That depends on the list. Many leave off guys once they make the majors. But judging by the fact that Mark Melancon has major league service I would expect that FanGraphs is counting him and he just didn’t make this list.
