Ian Kennedy won the title of third best Yankees prospect in our poll. He got six votes to Jose Tabata's five. I voted for Tabata but thinking about it more I probably would have voted for Austin Jackson. Dellin Bettances and Jairo Heredia both got one vote and Jackson got two. Ian Kennedy was drafted last year with Joba Chamberlain and he`s rose up the ranks with him. He`s earned the nickname "Mini-Moose" because he's put up even better numbers than Chamberlain or Hughes mainly with control rather than great stuff. The Texas GM demanded either him or Melky for Gagne and Cashman rightly refused. Kennedy might actually be our 5th starter next year.
