A powerful lefthanded outfielder, Yankee prospect Slade Heathcott has looked like a future offensive monster for some time now, though his development has been slowed a great deal by shoulder injuries that have required two surgeries already. A professional hitter, Heathcott has plus contact and power skills, not to mention superior baserunning ability. He's more than adequate in the field, and while he can play center, his body type might be better-suited to a corner outfield position. All told, he's a legitimate 30-30 candidate as long as he stays focused on development. Mumblings about possible off-field issues seem to be more smoke than substance, the occasional brawl notwithstanding, but even if there's something there, the button-down Yankees system is a good place to straighten out any young man looking for discipline and guidance. He's dropped off a lot of lists, but given some time to heal and straighten himself out, he should be working his way back up again in the next couple of seasons.
