Tabata and A-jax yet to pop a homerun.

The Yankees top 2 positional prospects have yet to homer in a combined 53 games at Double-A Trenton.

Austin Jackson hasn't been struggling persay, given his .283 avg, and .377 OBP, but he still has just 3 rbi's in 29 games.

Jose Tabata is really struggling, hitting .200 with a .308 OBP. We gave him a mulligan on the lack of power last year because of the wrist injury, but this year he really needs to muscle up.

plus side, they've stolen a combined 8 bases 5 for A-jax, and 3 for Tabata.

Many younger players do not show a lot of power. it all depends on how their bodies mature. I am not sure how old Jackson is but Tabata is still a baby at 19. Just look at Melky. He hit only 8 last year and already has 5 this season already. He looks like he will be hitting 20-25 a year from now on.; Mattingly never showed any power in the minors. I know they are not the only ones. If they were 25 I would worry
