Top Prospects, Top Tools

Over the next few weeks we'll be dissecting the top ten prospects in many different tools' categories in a series of articles called "Tool Time". Before we do, here is a look at the top pitching, offensive and defensive tools as we crown players with titles such as "Best Curveball", "Best Outfield Arm", "Best Power", and many more.

Offensive Honors:

Best Hitter For Average - Mason Williams - Ramon Flores is certainly in the mix here and so is Tyler Austin, but Williams can beat out a few more infield hits.
Honorable Mention - Corban Joseph
Coming Soon - Greg Bird

Best Hitter For Power - Gary Sanchez - His 18 home runs last season is just scratching the surface of his power.
Honorable Mention - Tyler Austin
Coming Soon - Peter O'Brien

Best Fastball Hitter - Gary Sanchez - The Yankees have some great fastball hitters - Tyler Austin, Mason Williams, Angelo Gumbs, etc - but Sanchez is still the best.
Honorable Mention - Melky Mesa

Honorable Mention - David Adams
Coming Soon - Greg Bird

Best Plate Discipline - Ramon Flores - Hitters like David Adams, Austin Romine, and J.R. Murphy all have great plate discipline, but Flores rarely swings out of the zone.
Honorable Mention - Corban Joseph
Coming Soon - Greg Bird

Best Left-Handed Swing – Ramon Flores - With a Robinson Cano-like swing, it doesn't get any prettier. Corban Joseph comes close.
Honorable Mention - Mason Williams
Coming Soon - Greg Bird

Best Right-Handed Swing - David Adams – His swing should be the video all young batters are required to watch.
Honorable Mention - J.R. Murphy
Coming Soon - Luis Torrens

Honorable Mention - Mason Williams
Coming Soon - Jorge Mateo

Best Athlete - Mason Williams - Slade Heathcott is right up here with Williams neck-and-neck.

Pitching Honors:

Deepest Repertoire - Manny Banuelos - Yes he's out for 2013 but nobody has a better 1-2-3 punch stuff-wise.
Honorable Mention - Nik Turley
Coming Soon - Daniel Camarena

Best Fastball For Starting Pitcher - Bryan Mitchell - The command can be spotty at times but at 94-98 mph nobody throws a better heavy fastball.
Honorable Mention - Jose Ramirez
Coming Soon - Rafael DePaula

Best Fastball For Relief Pitcher - Tommy Kahnle - Danny Burawa and Manny Barreda are up there too, but Kahnle's is a shade better.
Honorable Mention - Branden Pinder

Best Curveball - Dellin Betances - He has fallen on very hard times lately but it has nothing to do with his incredible curveball.
Honorable Mention - Bryan Mitchell

Honorable Mention Jose Ramirez
Coming Soon - Rafael DePaula

Best Changeup - Jose Ramirez – Dellin Betances and Brett Marshall could slide in at the top spot too, but Ramirez's is a bit more effective because of the better overall fastball.
Honorable Mention - Nik Turley

Best Control - Brett Marshall - If he throws his slider in 2013 like he did down the stretch last year few have better control.
Honorable Mention - Jose Ramirez
Coming Soon - Daniel Camarena

Honorable Mention - Anderson Feliz
Coming Soon - Abiatal Avelino

Best Defensive Catcher - J.R. Murphy - He went from suspect defensively in his first season to the most reliable backstop recently.
