    Sorry to see that Charleston was rained out. That team is loaded with prospects. Tyler Austin has been nothing short of amazing. And Jose Campos isn’t far behind. Add to the mix Dante Bichette, Mason Williams and Gary Sanchez and you’ve got what may be the top five prospects on the Yankees and all on the same team.
