Kevin Goldstein's Yankee Top 11

BP's prospect guru with his take on the cream of the system:

Five-Star Prospects
1. Jesus Montero, C
2. Austin Jackson, CF
Three-Star Prospects
3. Dellin Betances, RHP
4. Austin Romine, C
5. Arodys Vizcaino, RHP
6. Andrew Brackman, RHP
7. Jeremy Bleich, LHP
8. Alfredo Aceves, RHP
9. Zach McAllister, RHP
10. Phil Coke, LHP
11. Mark Melancon, RHP

Just Missed: Brad Suttle, 3B; Kelvin De Leon, RF; Wilkins De La Rosa, LHP


Vizcaino continues his rise-18 year old with lots of filling out still to do who is already capable of mid 90's heat. Nice to see 2 5 stars in Montero and Ajax-and the Montero first trend continues.

Surprised to see McAllister behind Bleich, but Bleich has impressed in his limited action. I see Zach as the surer thing, but Bleich has a higher ceiling, and is lefthanded.
