DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you agree or disagree with the notion that Yankee prospects tend to be overhyped? Joba and Jesus Montero were obviously way overhyped. I know its early, but Severino and Judge appear to have been a bit overranked as well. On that topic, Gleyber Torres was a top 20-40 prospect at midseason, is traded to the Yankees, plays worse in the minors and is now being rated in the top 5 by various outlets. I know he had a great AFL, but it was only 18 games and I don't remember offensive stats in the AFL ever being weighed as heavily as they seem to be with Gleyber.
(Art from Baltimore)
Hey Art. Yeah, I think I agree with this general sentiment; there's something of a Yankee mystique that I think gets lumped in with prospects in their system. Similar to the Red Sox or Cubs, though they have the shine largely because of their top tier front office reputation. For the Yankees I think it's purely a tautology -- the Yankees are so good that they'd only acquire good players. So even players like Tyler Austin get the benefit of the doubt for a while, and every player is untouchable and a future HoF. I think their system is the best its been in ages, but I also think there's a ton of risk in all three of the names you mentioned, especially Torres, who could easily be a no-hit glove guy. (Trevor Strunk)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, who do have as some of your favorite "to keep an eye on" prospects for 2015?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
This is all over the place, but some guys who's values could fluctuate wildly from a fantasy POV for me are: Trey Ball, Chelsor Cuthbert, Casey Kelly, Tyler Austin, Tyrell Jenkins, Colin Moran, Kyle Crick, Matt Olson, Kyle Zimmer, Rymer Liriano, Gary Sanchez and Alen Hanson. All over the place, I know, but I feel like a lot of those guys are gonna go one of two ways. (Ben Carsley)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What Yankee prospect is most likely to make an eventual impact?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Saying "most likely" puts an interesting twist on the question. Guys like Tyler Austin, Slade Heathcott and Mark Montgomery will all likely have extensive big league careers, but I don't know how impactful those careers will be. I still believe Gary Sanchez's bat can carry him to the Major Leagues and I think there's some hope that he can catch well enough that you live with it because of the impact of his bat. (Mark Anderson)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these Yankee OF prospects, Slade Heathcott, Mason Williams or Tyler Austin, do you feel will have the best major league career?
(TheDonCharleone from North Carolina)
Austin. Better bat. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)

2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Austin legit? Do scouts agree with the numbers?
(Txt hrs from Dallas)
Depends on the numbers, but scouts seem to think he's going to be a solid-to-good player. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was Tyler Austin close to make this year's top 101, and do you think he has a realistic shot of cracking in next year?
(MikeD from NY)
No; No. (Kevin Goldstein)
