Manny Banuelos could be a high risk/high reward candidate if the Yankees are concerned about his future. A 22 year old lefty with 3 above average pitches, including his FB, that underwent TJ surgery in 2012 after pitching 6 games at AAA (sound like anyone we know?). He was a top 100 prospect before the injury. Potentially could be a buy low candidate.
Jose Ramirez is another interesting pitcher. 23 and at AA/AAA this year he has a plus fastball that sits at 95 and probably an above average hard slider. He has some problems with control, but what hard thrower doesn't in the minors? If he doesn't pan out as a starter he could be a very interesting back of the bullpen guy with his fastball and slider combo.
However, like I said we don't match up well with their needs so I doubt anything happens here.
