Tyler Austin
27-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Minnesota Twins
2018 Fantasy Outlook
While the rest of the Baby Bombers took over in 2017, it's starting to look like one former highly-touted Yankees prospects will be left behind. Austin had a respectable campaign with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, slashing .275/.342/.544 with 10 home runs in just 47 games, but the 26-year-old appeared in only 20 games in the majors and hit just .225 with 17 strikeouts in 40 at-bats. The bigger problem is that with crowded organizational depth at both first base and in the outfield, there just doesn't look to be an obvious spot for Austin on the major-league roster. If Austin does get a chance in 2018, it will likely be as a short-end platoon bat; he's crushed southpaws in his brief MLB career to the tune of a .361/.432/.722 line, but his numbers against righties have been poor.
