Until recently the fastest-rising player on the Yankee farm, outfielder Tyler Austin destroyed four (four!) levels of minor league ball in 2012, averaging .322/.400/.559 from rookie ball all the way up to AA, and that AA line wasn't bad in itself: a .286 average in a player's very first taste of high-level minors is something special. Austin is a right-handed hitter with a quick and strong swing to all fields, which makes him extra-potent once his advanced batting eye and patience is brought to bear. His power is rapidly approaching plus, and while he'll be no leadoff-type base stealer, a middle-order back with better than average speed is exactly what the Yankees are looking for these days. Slowed by injuries to open 2014, he should return to fast-rising status by midseason.
