AB4AR's Top 5 Prospect Tools: Stuff

(Courtesy of Baseball America)

I wanted this to be split up into a few more posts on pitching tools, I just didn't have the time to get to them individually this week.  Instead, I'm going to try to kill a few bird with one stone and lump everything together into a post ranking my top 5 "stuff" guys in the Yankee system right now.  Stuff alone is not enough to get a pitching prospect to the show.  It's really only as good as a pitcher's command of it will allow it to be.  But there are precious few pitchers who make it all the way to the Majors without at least having "good" stuff and a look around the Yankee farm right now will show that they aren't lacking on guys with good natural stuff.  My picks for the 5 best stuff makeups in the system after the jump.
