Austin Jackson made the list and he is ranked 27th overall. Jesus Montero was ranked 40th on the list. These two guys are pretty much the top 2 prospects in the farm system, so I doubt any other Yankees will make the list ahead of them.

Austin Jackson Scouting Report:

2008 Season
Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
TRE EAS .285 131 520 75 148 33 5 9 69 218 56 113 19 6 .354 .419 .773

Scouting report: He is an athletic outfielder, who used to be basketball standout, and is still refining game. He???s working on a more consistent approach at the plate, but needs to cut down on strikeouts a bit. There???s potential to have decent power at some point down the line. He has speed with some ability to steal a few bases and is good defensively in center with above-average range and a good arm.



Jesus Montero Scouting Report:

2008 Season
Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
CHA SAL .326 132 525 86 171 34 1 17 87 258 37 83 2 1 .376 .491 .868

Scouting report: A big teenaged backstop who has big-time offensive skills, he should hit for average and power. His defensive skills have improved but lag behind the bat. Specifically, he???s worked on the lower-half flexibility needed to be a quality receiver.
