Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?
played his last AFL game in RF...
and according to his stats he's played a game at first base as well..
The other day, I was scrolling through the transactions page, and hit the minors section. In there, they showed the Rule 5 shuffling that takes place to protect players. Then it showed the post Rule 5 reshuffling. However, on Friday, they listed a bunch of players as having been released by the Yanks.
They were:INF Tony Calabrese, INF Nate Bowden, 1B Matt Mamula, OF David Fowler, OF Torre Tyson, SS Ivan Reyes, RHP Gerald Rada, C Luis Boullon, INF Nicholas Orlandas, OF Justin Davenport,...
Hi, I'm fairly new to the board and would like to know about Richard Tarr. He seems to have everyone's respect regarding opinions about prospects. I'd like to know what his (your) credentials are because I have read your posts and must agree that his (your) opinions are on the money with what I have seen of the Yankees' prospects. Of course, that doesn't make either him (you) or me right but the knowledge seems to be there.
I think he'll be up before the end of `03. What do you guys think?
The good news is we didn't lose any one.The bad is we didn't obtain anyone....
hi have you got any idea as to when we can expect sean henn to be back playing , and if he makes good progress by when will he be mlb ready
Today 12/11/02 B.A. posted that the Yanks signed RHP Francisco Villegas.If anyone has any info on him please post.
27. New York Yankees
The Bronx Bombers aren’t used to finding themselves near the bottom of anything, but their ranking here is deserved. The top arms are injured and a lot of position players took big steps back this year. Midseason trades emptied whatever players were left, and the Yankees now hang their hopes on a lot of high-risk returns.
Most Likely Major Leaguer: Juan Rivera, OF
Most Potential: Drew Henson, 3B
2003 Breakthrough: Chien-Ming Wang, RHP
No...not that Abreu. Winston Abreu!
Yankees signed RHP Winston Abreu to a minor league contract. The 25-year-old Abreu has good stuff, striking out 651 in 548 2/3 IP in eight minor league seasons, but he's never developed into a quality pitcher. He's still young enough to have a future if things click.
Here are the latest minor league signings by the Yanks.If you have any info on them please post .(What they throw or any pedigree info)LPH Corey Lee,Lucas Beech,OF Kevin Gibbs and Brian Robinson.
Is this guy still in our plans or is he a bust?
Read what Tom Verducci thought of him when he was previewing the 2001 Yankees. He sounded a lot like Francisco Rodriguez.
IMHO the pitching in our farm system is a little depleted at this point in time. Lets be real....if the Yankees thought anyone was ready they would bring them up and try trading an older pitcher to save some money for Matsui. Mind you I am omitting Henn, Claussen, Skaggs and any other who have injuries because you just don't know until they take the mound for an set amount of time.
I read about the Yankee's Latin program and I am extremely interested in Jose Valdez, Anderson Garcia and...

Long time Yankee minor league Coach/ Manager Stump Merrill will manage the Yanks AA team in Trenton this year.
I see the Yanks left him off the 40-man roster. Understandibly so, since he had a rough 2002 season.
He has since finished a strong campaign in the AFL going 1-1, 2.38 ERA, 28/10 BB/K in 22 1/3 innings of relief. I think a team looking for bullpen help will take a "chance" on Adrian. Any team can pick him up in the upcoming Rule 5 draft. I think someone will.
Henson still has a lot to learn
By Mark Feinsand / MLB.com
The Arizona Fall League season is over, but according to Maryvale Saguros manager Tommy John, Drew Henson's baseball career is just beginning.
Henson, the Yankees' third-base prospect, was not the star player in Arizona that many had thought he would be, but John believes that the 22-year-old has a bright future in...
In the Yanks write-up, they note that RHP Bryan Grace is back in the Yanks "good graces" (bad pun, I know- but couldn't resist). They also noted he will start in AA Trenton next year. Good promotion for a guy almost forgotten last year.
At the bottom of the article, they noted the reason why 2B Andy Phillips and OF Marcus Thames played so little in the AFL. Phillips "rolled" an ankle and Thames hurt his rib cage. Obviously, the Yanks shut them down then to give them time to rest and...
Jim Callis wrote in BA - Valdez regularly hits 97 on the gun.He says he is very raw but may have the highest ceiling of any pitcher in the yankee system.This is the first I have read about him but it sounds good.
He pitched a little at SI and Tampa GCL he is listed as 19 yrs. old and 6-4 186 lbs. from Dom. Rep.
Hey Guys! I am now leaning towards having my site hosted instead of hosting it myself since I am planning on moving within the next 6 months or so. I plan on making the site purely for informational purposes...I find it hard to find up to date information on Yankee prospects on the web and wanted to make a site where people can go to wonder about the next great yankee!
My question to you guys is: What kind of things would you be looking for in a site dedicated to yankee prospects?? ...
Is he the next great Yankee prospect? I know he's going to be in basball America's new top ten, but I'm detecting additional buzz.
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees purchased the contracts of right-hander Ben Rivera and catcher Michel Hernandez on Thursday and added them to their 40-man roster.
Rivera, 33, was 1-1 with a 1.53 ERA and 30 saves for Mexico City of the Mexican league in 2002. He pitched in the majors from 1992-94, going 23-17 with a 4.52 ERA for Atlanta and Philadelphia. The Yankees signed Rivera to a minor league contract...
Drew Henson certainly struggled in the AFL, but he had a pretty good finish. He went 2 for 4 in yesterday's finale with a double and his 6th homer to finish up at 211. Better than the 190 he was at just a few days ago. Plus, his last 5 games he played at 3rd base, he didn't make any errors. Now he can get a much needed rest and be fresh and ready for Spring training.
There are a few farmhands out there getting some winter play in, though nothing exciting is going on with these guys.
Erick Almonte- playing with Licey in the Dominican League- hitting .118 in 34 AB's- looks like he's trying to swing for the fences- 2 HR's, no other extra base hits.
LHP Randy Keisler- trying to get some winter innings in with Caguas in Puerto Ricoto to help rehab the arm before spring training . Being smart- low use- only 11.2 IP. As expected, numbers are very ordinary-...
I am having problems with the link. The article was baseball america online askba. Article is about Borrel, Clausen, Henn, Valdez and others including Matsui and Contreras.
I thought I'd give everyone an update on how the Yanks are doing in the Arizona Fall League. They're all minor leagers, so this might belong in the Minors thread, but it's about the Yanks. All stats are courtesy of mlb.com:
Drew Henson 3B .210-3-16 100AB 26K 10 Errors in 27 Games
Dave Parrish C .324-2-5 37AB 8 K 2 Errors
Andy Phillips IF .000 7 AB (I don't know why he hasn't played more.)
