Advice: Austin is now protected from the Rule-5 draft. He hit .275/.336/.419 with nine homers and three steals at Double-A in 2014. In the Arizona Fall League, he suffered a bone bruise but dodged legitimate knee damage. Austin was ranked as the Yankees' No. 17 prospect by Baseball America prior to the '14 campaign.
