ESNY’s New York Yankees top 10 prospects

10. Miguel Andujar

The third basemen opened up the season with more questions than answers, and more potential than numbers. By the end of the season, it appeared as though he was finally showing some of that potential.



A usual slow starter, Andujar hopped out to a strong start at High-A Tampa. In his first 230 at-bats, he hit .283 with 10 home runs. It was his second season spent in High-A, and he was able to learn and grow from the results of his first season.

When he proved that he had mastered the level, he got a promotion to Double-A Trenton and took a step back.

Andujar went 75-for-282 and maintained a respectable .323 OBP. The young phenom took his biggest step back in power, his slugging percentage was .358 and he only hit two home runs in 282 at-bats but finished strong as he hit .300 in his final 10 games.

Luckily for Andujar, he may not be rated as highly as some on this list, but he has one of the clearest paths to the pros for a position player.

All he has to do is continue performing, and he will either dethrone Chase Headley or wait until Headley walks and take his spot.
