New York Yankees: Top 20 Prospects

13. Jacob Lindgren, LHP, 22, Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft out of Mississippi St.

Jacob Lindgren has a lot of potential to be a dominant reliever. It took him a little less than a year to reach the majors after signing with the Yankees. But unfortunately his first stint in the majors came to a halt due to a bone spur in his elbow. Nevertheless, Lindgren is a polished reliever who has a filthy slider/fastball combo that will play well out of the bullpen. If all goes as plan, Lindgren could become a key part of the Yankees already dominating bullpen sooner rather than later.
