2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Austin lost a bit of his prospect luster in 2013, hitting just .257 with six homers and four steals in Double-A after putting up solid power and speed numbers the previous two years. Austin was held back by a wrist injury all year, however, and while he's still got plenty of all-around upside, the injury flared up again later in the year, forcing Austin off of his Arizona Fall League roster. Austin may repeat Double-A in 2014, and if he can show that he's over his wrist issues, he could play his way right back into the Yankees' plans for 2015.

2013

Austin zoomed up prospect lists with a strong 2012 season, hitting .322 with a .960 OPS and stealing 23-of-25 bases across four levels. Austin shows very good bat speed, average to above average power, and a solid approach at the plate. He currently plays right field, but may profile at first base down the line (which could make him trade bait, as the Yankees still have Mark Teixeira in the fold for four more seasons). Austin is unlikely to be a superstar, but profiles as a regular major leaguer who can help fantasy teams if he reaches something close to his ceiling. He'll start 2013 at Double-A Trenton.
