Austin Jackson, the yankees top prospect, is the future star in the OF, not gardner. Jackson is MLB ready now and if he were playing for any other club he would already be in the bigs but the Yanks OF is too jammed for him to be called up bcuz he won't be called up to be a platoon player. I fully expect the Yankees to make a move to acquire a setup man, maybe 2, at the deadline and that will come at the expense of one of these OF for sure. Most likely swisher or melky will be the ones dealt but i wouldn't be surprised if they decide to put joba in the bullpen if they trade jackson away for a great starting pitcher.

Austin Jackson has played 1 game in his entire MiLB career above double A
Joba can never go to the bullpen again
As he reaches his IP limit towards the end of the year. I would expect a bullpen experiment
