Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?
For any of you who were wondering about his velocity, he is throwing 89-93 currently...
Jorge DePaula pitched 1 hit, shutout ball over 8 innings yesterday in a 3-0 win for Columbus. DePaula has been the Clippers hottest pitcher over the past month and recently was named Player of the Week in the IL. He could be called up if Wells's back forces him on the DL.
If you could only keep 3 Yankee prospects from being traded, which 3 would you protect from management and why?
If you could sign just one of the 2 pitcher from the draft who would it be?Bard or Purcey?I think with Purcey being a lefty I would go with him.It's close though.I hope we can sign both.So who would you go for .
Even though they may not have exactly the same stuff, although I think it is comparable, Borrell has had a strangely similar career to Brandon Claussen. They had breakout years in AA and then injuries. Claussen made a great comeback and vaulted himself back into the top-prospect status. Borrell was having a very good AAA year when his shoulder went bad. He was also in the top 10 of Yankee prospects this year and was minor league pitcher of the year last year. Do you think that he will regain...
The Battle Creek web site used the following article to speculate on Matt Desalvo's promotion
DeSalvo invokes science in pitching
Plain Dealer Reporter
Elvys Quezada had his second straight strong outing for Battle Creek last night. He didn't give up a hit until the 6th inning. His overall line was 7 innings, 2 runs, 3 hits, 1 walk and 5 Ks. He's now 2-0 for Battle Creek with a 1.38 ERA. TJ Beam makes his Battle Creek debut tonight. These 2 could move up very quickly. Also, last year's #1 draft pick Brandon Weeden is making his 2nd start for SI this afternoon. He had a rocky first outing last Sunday so lets hope today is better.
Rounding the hot corner
By Jane Havsy, Daily Record
Eric Duncan has dreamt of becoming a Major League Baseball player almost his entire life. When he was a Little Leaguer in California, and in the starting lineup at Seton Hall Prep, it was never far from his thoughts.
Drafted in the first round by the New York Yankees in June, Duncan is already well on his way towards his lifelong goal.
8. Tyler Clippard, RHP, Mitchell (FL) HS
Clippard has a 6-4, 175 frame that’s far from maturity, but he’s already consistent 87-88 MPH with perhaps the best curveball this weekend. He throws a big-biter that could turn into a strikeout pitch at the highest level. - from team one baseball
Q: Roderic from NY asks:Based on scouting reports and stats thus far, Eric Duncan seems like offensively he profiles similar to Sean Burroughs, but with more power and less average. How accurate is that?
A: Will Kimmey: Duncan has a little more juice than Burroughs at the same stage. He's a bit bigger and stronger through his upper body as well, so much so that a move to 1b or the OF could be in the offing eventually. Chipper Jones was the comparison that came up a lot during our...
From Team One Baseball's top 10 prospects at the Cape Cod League All Star game:
5. David Purcey LHP Oklahoma
Purcey had some control issues this spring at OU but his talent has never been questioned and of all the pitchers he may have the most ‘pro ready’ frame of the lot. Along with durable proportions, Purcey has enough arm strength from the left side to generate low 90s giddy-up. He does, however, have some ‘head snap’ when cutting loose but that may be something that he’ll have to live...
OK so Claussen is gone and he was a shoe in to get called up in September. What pitcher would replace him as your september call up? Well since our bullpen is whats killing us I would have to say a long list of relievers will be coming up. My guess is that Yancy Brazoban will be called up despite his shaky start in AA Tenton.
For position player I would have to say Seginoul (spelling?) and Navarro. At least one them will be up here.
Down on the farm
Drew Henson, who has been the subject of much speculation regarding his future in baseball, had three hits and five RBIs in Triple-A Columbus' 17-1 victory over Indianapolis on Tuesday. Henson is hitting .400 (14-for-35) in his last 10 games. ...
Columbus right-hander Jorge De Paula was named the International League's Pitcher of the Week on Monday, going 2-0 with a 0.53 ERA in two starts. De Paula, who allowed one run in 17 innings, is among league leaders with three...

Just thought you'd guys like to know what he did.

A.Graman (L,8-9) 3.0 3 4 4 6 2 0 4.31
S.Proctor 3.0 0 0 0 0 6 0 0.00
The Columbus Clippers and the Durham Bulls gave a very vocal crowd their moneys worth last night. The game took many twists and turns and finished with a very bizarre flourish.
Mike Thurman set the tone by striking out the side in the first inning but gave up a run on three seeing eye ground balls. It took Curtis Pride just one pitch to tie the score. He lifted a majestic shot deep into Dysart Park. The Clippers went ahead 2-1 on Bobby Smith's walk, Fernando Seguignol double and Juan...
What happens to Henson?
Torre believes third baseman's future is in baseball
ANAHEIM -- When the Yankees traded for third baseman Aaron Boone on Thursday, they made it clear where Drew Henson stands within the organization. Unfortunately for Henson, that's in Columbus.
Once thought to be the third baseman of the future for the Yankees, Henson has toiled in the minors for three seasons, unable to make the necessary strides to give the franchise the optimism that...
Elvys Quezada, 21, drafted out of Seton Hall University in the 15th round this past June, did so well at Staten Island (3-0, 1.83 ERA), he was promoted to Battle Creek of the Midwest League and won his first start there, beating South Bend on Saturday, allowing no runs on two hits in six innings.
What happened to Navarro on July 30th that he's not playing again probably until August 4th?
In Baseball America's annual best tools survey, Robinson Cano was named best defensive second baseman in the FSL, Ferdin Tejeda has the best infield arm in the FSL, those were the only minor league Yankees noted.
Just saw a dubble header as SI.Came away with 2 things. Hector Zamora even though he made an error has one hell of a glove at 3rd and Matt DeSalvo has a the stuff to move up.He has nice control and was Low to mid 90's for 7 innings.I think he be next to B.C.He also fields his position really well.He's very quick off the mound.He looks like a real keeper.
"Bard is a picture of projection. You can see here what a long, lanky frame he has at 6-4 and how smooth both his delivery and arm-stroke are. Many kids at this age are very awkward in their actions, especially if they've had a growth spurt. But Bard shows remarkable coordination. His raw stuff at this time (last summer) included a 90 MPH fastball and the makings of a curve, both of which should project. There just seems to be a lot more in there that hasn't been realized. You'll see this...
Team One Baseball top 10 from FSL all star game.
9. Robinson Cano, 2B, New York Yankees
Cano’s a pesky slap-hitter from the left side who uses the field and covers the plate well enough that he might be able to hit for average all the way up. He’s shown a lot of range at second base and turned an excellent double play on a behind-the-back feed from shortstop Danny Gonzalez. The hands could use a little softening and he simply needs to master “small ball” on offense, which will involve...
Anyone know what happened to this guy? He had 2-3 very impressive outings for the GCL Yanks and then went on the DL on June 3, though there is no word of what kind of injury he suffered. ANyone know?
