BA ranks the Yankees top prospects. For those still wringing their hands about the Sheffield trade, none of the players the Tigers sent (Sanchez, Claggett, Whelan) made the top 10 or were even discussed in the chat. Claggett was recognized for having the best slider in their system though.
The Tigers have talked with Brandon Lyon's agent. I like it, not as in handing him the closer's job, but as in adding a bullpen arm for under $4 million. Lyon has a low K-rate but a very low walk rate as well. He was hurt by a very high BABIP last year that resulted in probably 15 more hits than would have been expected.
