The Yankees boast a system of high-end talent and some really young guys coming off of solid seasons. At the top of the list is Manny Banuelos, who, in the eyes of many is one of the top three left-handed pitching prospects in baseball. Towards the bottom of the list sits Mason Williams, a guy I was lucky enough to watch blossom in Staten Island last season. Although two extremely different prospects with very different upsides, both are persona favorites. Despite this system not grading out as high as Yankees fans would have hoped, it's still by all means solid, and one that could develop potential all-starts down the line or, like our good friend Jesus Montero, trade candidates for top-tier major leaguers.
