I received another package of cards from my personal favorite Yankees blogger Zippy Zappy. He always loads up the prospects in his random packages, and this one was no different:
2. 2014 New York-Penn League Top Prospects Nick Longhi. Longhi is another very young work-in-progress who should show a lot of power as he matures.
3. 2014 New York-Penn League Top Prospects Sam Travis. Travis is a bit farther along and his power has already materialized.
4. 2013 Panini Prizm Perennial Draft Pics Garin Cecchini. Cecchini made a brief appearance in Boston this season and looks poised to make a bigger splash next season.
5. 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects Manuel Margot.
6. 2013 Topps Minors Keury De La Cruz. De La Cruz had his breakout season in 2012 and followed that up with another solid season in 2014 though he has fallen a bit on the depth chart.
7. 2014 Topps Chrome Orange Refractor Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia just won his fourth Gold Glove Award this week. Very impressive.
8. 2013 Topps Minors Brian Johnson. Johnson has proven to be a very impressive control pitcher in the minors, possibly looking at becoming another Doug Fister.
9. 2013 New York-Penn League Ty Buttrey. Buttrey is another high-ceiling arm in the Red Sox system and looks poised to move quickly next season.
