Brandon is a LHP that went 5-2 with a 2.85 ERA in 9 starts at Tampa (A) before gettin a promotion to AA Norwich. He had 69 K's in 56 IP. Gave up 47 hits and 13 BB's.
In his first start at Norwich (AA), he went 8 1/3 innings allowing 7 hits and 3 walks while striking out 7. He is 1-0 with a 2.16 ERA.
Just a lefty to keep an eye on.

Yogibuck, please post all threads related to Minor Leage players in the Minor League forum. I've had to move several of yours here. Thanks :).

Sorry. Didn't know there was one. My link took me right in.
No problem, was wondering why there was so little talk.
Always good to see a young lefthander making good. Speaking of which, anyone got the latest on Alex Graman?

Alex Graman was one of the Yanks top lefty pitching prospects in Double-A Norwich last year.

Actually, Graman spent most of last year in Tampa. He only pitched once for Norwich but he started with the 'Gators this year. He's 4-3 with a 3.35 ERA, allowing 51 hits in 45.2 innings, striking out 37 and walking 19. Not great numbers, but not discouraging either. He's about a year older than Claussen, but most scouts think Graman has better stuff and a higher ceiling. BP calls him the best pitching prospect in the Yankee organization, and BA ranks him behind only Keisler (and maybe Hernandez, I can't quite remember).
Thanks for the updates on these guys...keep 'em coming.
