9. Ian Clarkin, LHP, 21, Drafted 33rd overall in 2013 draft out of Madison HS

Ian Clarkin has dealt with injuries early on in his career, which is never a good sign, especially for a LHP. Nonetheless, the Yankees love his talent and for good reason. If he can stay healthy he has the chance to be a viable big league starter. But health is the major question with Clarkin and unfortunately it is hard to predict if he will be able to shake the injury bug. On the bright side, Clarkin just turned twenty-one, so he is still young enough to fulfill the potential the Yankees saw when they selected him 33rd overall in 2013
