2013 All Under 25 Team

What the 2013 Yankees might look like if they only promoted from their system.

Batting order, position, age, current level:
LF Abe Almonte, 18 (Rookie Gulf Coast League)
CF Melky Cabrera, 22 (Majors)
RF Jose Tabata, 18 (High-A Tampa)
1b Juan Miranda, 24 (Double-A Trenton)
DH Jesus Montero, 17 (GCL)
2b Robbie Cano, 24 (Majors)
C Frankie Cervelli, 21 (High-A)
3b Mitch Hilligoss, 22 (Low-A Charleston)
SS Justin Snyder, 21 (Short Season Staten Island)

IF Prilys Cuello, 18 (GCL)
IF Alberto Gonzalez, 24 (Double-A)
OF Brett Gardner, 23 (Triple-A Scranton)
OF Austin Jackson, 20 (High-A)

Phil Hughes, 21 (Majors)
Joba Chamberlain, 21 (Double-A)
Dellin Betances, 19 (Staten Island)
Christian Garcia, 21 (High-A)
Ian Kennedy, 22 (Double-A)

J.B. Cox, 23 (Double-A)
David Robertson, 22 (High-A)
Edwar Ramirez, 26 (Majors)
Mark Melancon, 22 (Staten Island)
Kevin Whelan, 23 (High-A)
Alan Horne, 24 (Double-A)
Humberto Sanchez, 24 (Triple-A)

There's a ton of potential there, especially in the pitching staff. The only problem is that there's not a single southpaw among all 12 pitchers (and several are currently rehabbing from major injuries).

Honorable mentions: OFs Colin Curtis, Seth Fortenberry, Carlos Urena, IFs Marcos Vechionacci, Reegie Corona, RHPs Zach McAllister, George Kontos, Jeff Marquez, Chris Britton, Ty Clippard, Ross Ohlendorf, Scott Patterson, Dan McCutchen, Jairo Heredia, LHPs Chase Wright, Mike Dunn and Angel Reyes. No 2007 draftees yet.
