Which minor leaguer is most exciting?

5/31/2012

"Tyler Austin," said Brian Cashman.

Why?

"Look at his numbers," the Yankees GM said. "He is having a monster year."

Austin, 20, is hitting .323 with 13 homers and 44 RBIs for Single-A Charleston. His OPS is over .1000. He's mostly played right field this season and a little first base and DH.

The Yankees picked him in the 13th round of the 2010. He is 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds. He hits and fields right-handed.

And he has the GM very excited about his future.
