Well here is my thoughts on Dellin Betances. First of all there is a lot of hype behind Betances. He would've been a first round draft pick however, I believe he was commited to a U.S. college. He is arguably one of the top 3 high school arms from last years draft. That includes Clayton Kershaw, Kyle Drabek, and of course Dellin Betances. If Dellin was a left handed pitcher he would be getting a lot more praise then he currently is. However, with that said while our expectations should be held back a little the sky is the limit for him. Baseball America refers to Dellin as a potential #1 starter at the next level. However, he is just 18 years old so we need to be cautious. Do I like him? Yes. I actually own him in my dynasty league and I am extremely high on him. It will be interesting this year (his first full season) to see how hee developes. He is worth the risk if you can keep him for a couple years. He could be something really special. However, please the last place you want to go for advice or opinion on a Yankee prospect is to their fans. No knock against them it's just that they tend to over-hype prospects. Phil Hughes isn't over-hyped but, look at Eric Duncan amoungst others. Besides that website says "I am going to compare Betances to a healthy Mark Prior." How can we compare someone as raw as Betances to Mark Prior?

his potential is very high, like nathan said a #1 possibly but hes 18 and has a LONG way to go. he's the farthert thing from a "healthy prior" and i do agree that NY prospects tend to be way over-hyped.

hes nothing more then a good-great potential SP that could go either way since hes so young.

I think every teams fans overhype their prospects. Besides I didn't hear any hype from Yankee fans about Wang,Cano or Melky.

Also I think you are referring to Hughes being compared to a healthy Prior. I never heard of Betances compared to Prior

First of all NY was high on almost all three of those prospects only one I didn't hear much about was Wang. Secondly, it's not me comparing Hughes to Prior. It's the author whos comparing Betances to Prior (Please read).

If the author did compare him to a healthy prior then he could not be further from the truth. They are nothing alike. Hughes yes

I am from NY and Cano was only brought up because Womack
was awful. Cano was like there 6th "best" prospect on an awful farm system. Nobody and I mean nobody was pimpin Cano. Same goes with Melky. Yankee fans recently have not been hyping their prospects because they had been so awful. I think you might be thinking of Met fans

Robinson Cano was highly rated and rated by Baseball America #2 one year.
