He toiled away in the Minors for so long that I didn't even consider him a prospect anymore coming into this season. If anything, Dellin Betances was still a project at 25 years old and turning 26 before Opening Day. Despite being in the Yankee system since 2006 and making his Major League debut in 2011, Betances only had 7.2 innings pitched in 8 games in his Major League career. Once thought of as a potential ace starting pitching prospect, the Yankees finally gave up on that dream early last season and converted Betances to a full-time relief role.
