As the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches, the New York Yankees will look to their farm system to see if other teams might be interested in some of their young talent. At almost the midway point of the season, there is certainly a lot to digest.
Some of the team's young prospects have shined in the lower levels of the organization. Likewise, others have struggled. Young players experience hiccups frequently, but hiccups that last half the season aren't just minor issues. For those players who have gone through extended slumps, this might be the last straw.

We'll know all the answers to these questions in the coming weeks. For now, take a look at the stock report for the Yankees' top 10 farmhands at the midway point of the 2014 season.
