The Yankees made the biggest splash of what has been a very eventful off-season this past weekend, dealing top prospect Jesus Montero, a legitimate home run and batting average champion, for last year's most surprising rookie, 22-year old Michael Pineda of Seattle.
Add Montero's name to the list that includes fellow top prospects Yonder Alonso, Yasmani Grandal, Brad Peacock, Derek Norris, Tom Milone, Collin Cowgill, Jarrod Parker, and Anthony Rizzo. Each player has been traded and will likely find greener pastures (aka more playing time).
Still, by checking my nearest calendar, I find that spring training is still more than a month away, leaving plenty of time for more deals to be made, and more prospects to be dealt.
Jacob Turner, Detroit's stud pitching prospect, has seen his name fluttered about the market these past few weeks. He could be the next one to go, but it could also be someone else, someone lesser-known.
It could end up being one of the guys on this list.
