    Rotoworld Midseason Top 150 Prospects

    http://www.rotoworld.com/content/fea...eid=30730&pg=1

    Yankees-

    13. Austin Jackson - OF Yankees - DOB: 02/01/87 - ETA: June 2009
    Previous rankings: 2008 #35

    .290/.368/.444, 8 HR, 55 RBI, 73/48 K/BB, 14 SB in 383 AB (AA Trenton)

    Jackson never could master in the Sally League in a year and a half at the level, but in 163 games at Single-A Tampa and Trenton since his promotion last year, he's hit .312 with 41 doubles, 11 triples and 18 homers. He's also displayed a surprisingly strong walk rate this year. On defense, he has the range to play center and a very good arm. He may eventually need to move to right, but he'll probably be an upgrade over Melky Cabrera with the glove when he arrives in New York. The Yankees could deal Cabrera and let Jackson compete for the job next spring. Look at him as a 20-homer guy with the ability to hit for average.

    72. Jose Tabata - OF Yankees - DOB: 08/12/88 - ETA: 2011
    Previous rankings: 2006 #136, mid-2006 #18, 2007 #17, mid-2007 #13, 2008 #27

    100. Mark Melancon - RHP Yankees - DOB: 03/28/85 - ETA: May 2009
    Previous rankings: none

    120. Jesus Montero - C Yankees - DOB: 11/28/89 - ETA: 2012
    Previous rankings: none

    129. Dan McCutchen - RHP Yankees - DOB: 09/26/82 - ETA: May 2009
    Previous rankings: none

    134. Alan Horne - RHP Yankees - DOB: 01/05/83 - ETA: June 2009
    Previous rankings: mid-2007 #148, 2008 #138

    Mets-

    11. Fernando Martinez - OF Mets - DOB: 10/10/88 - ETA: 2010
    Previous rankings: mid-2006 #80, 2007 #10, mid-2007 #8, 2008 #12

    .462/.500/.692, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 2/0 K/BB, 0 SB in 13 AB (R GCL Mets)
    .292/.333/.421, 4 HR, 21 RBI, 51/13 K/BB, 5 SB in 233 AB (AA Binghamton)

    With a .328 average in 119 at-bats since the beginning of May, it seems like Martinez is starting to get a handle on Double-A pitching. He got off to another slow start in April, and 32 of his 53 strikeouts came in the first month of the season. He's made adjustments versus breaking balls since, and he's collecting a lot of singles as a result. His power stroke isn't there yet at age 19, and it's likely similar adjustment periods are in store when he's promoted to Triple-A and later the majors. However, he remains an elite prospect with All-Star upside. He should possess the power to his 30 homers per year, and he projects as an above average defender in right field.

    98. Jon Niese - LHP Mets - DOB: 10/27/86 - ETA: June 2009
    Previous rankings: none

    105. Ruben Tejada - SS Mets - DOB: 09/01/89 - ETA: 2013
    Previous rankings: 2008 #127

    138. Mike Carp - 1B Mets - DOB: 06/30/86 - ETA: Aug. 2009
    Previous rankings: mid-2007 #124, 2008 ---

    Oh and they have a guy I went up against in high school rank 150th.

    150. Vin Mazzaro - RHP Athletics - DOB: 09/27/86 - ETA: 2010
    Previous rankings: none

    Ruben Tejada has been a huge disappointment this year. Greg Veloz FTW.

    Not to good. I probably had about 10-15 at bats vs. him over a 2-3 year period. Threw in the 90s in high school, but he really didn't have pin point control, he put a few kids in the hospital, that scared the **** out me... LOL, I had a few hits, but nothing really solid. Just singles, plenty of K's.
