Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?

However, those days are over effective immediately.

I think he deserves his own thread. Post daily stats, season stats, scouting reports, any story’s, clips, pictures, quotes and just everything about him in this thread.
PP said he was the most impressive hitter at minor league camp. They also said he has great plate display and his bat is advance for such a young age, but most of us already knew that. I feel that he has an shot at becoming the top prospect in the organization after the season is done imo.
Hopefully this month will showcase Tabata's power and Chamberlain's dominance.
Go to it
I couldn't find a thread for talking about another team's prospects. I didn't want to put this in the All purpose thread because that is for the Yankees.
I'll take this guy. Maybe we can work out a deal. :D Sometimes a change of scenary is good for a player.
Right off the bat there are the two Cubans, and W+C=F just brought up a 16 year old bumping 93 with two breaking pitches and clean mechanincs (De Paula).
Figured to just start anew here instead of continuing the 2008 version of this thread.
As everyone knows we pick last in the first round(30th overall). Our first five picks in the draft are:
#30 - ANDREW BRACKMAN, RHP, NC STATE
#94 - Austin Romine, C, El Toro HS
#124 - Ryan Pope, RHP, Savannah Col. of Arts and Design
#154 - Brad Suttle, 3B, Texas
#184 - Adam Olbrychowski, RHP, Pepperdine
I created this new thread since the last one is very long. Please refrain from posting in this thread until the draft begins... if you can help it.
It's that time of year again for all those that like to follow along with the minor league in-game action or the daily recap of your favorite players.
It's opening night for all four affiliates and you can find internet radio broadcasts at the following:
-For Scranton 7 pm, Trenton 6:35 pm and Charleston 7 pm.
It is time....Here's to a Kennedy/Joba promotion to AA, a Horne/Marquez promotion to AAA, and a Jackson demotion to AA. :gulp:
Also, here's to a successful start to the season for Urena, the Almontes, Pirela, Betances, McCallister and ofcourse Montero. :gulp:
An interesting new concept and one that is past due but do you guys think it will help or hurt the Yankees?
Dominican Prospect League winds down
Several months ago, La Esquina profiled the start of the Dominican Prospect League, a brainchild of agents Brian Mejia, Ulises Cabrera and Roberto Morales where unsigned teenage Dominican prospects could participate in a league designed to show off their talents to MLB team scouts. The aim was to erase the perception that Dominican prospects...
we havent even reached the signing deadline, but the scouts are already our in full force scouring the country for potential draft picks and future stars
since its showcase season in amature baseball, i though we could get to know some potential major leaguers here
PG crosscheckers top 10 HS prospects for the 2008 draft :
1. Eric Hosmer 1B FLA.-6'4 210
2. Aaron Hicks OF CAL.-6'1 160
3. Garrit Cole RHP CAL.-6'3 190
Here are some fresh names to talk about leading up the the July 2nd signing period:
Inoa, a 6-foot-7, 200-pound righty, creates easy velocity through relatively sound mechanics. At the workout, Inoa consistently sat at 91-92 mph with his fastball, topping out at 94. He also throws a softer breaking ball which was inconsistent at times, and will also show a splitter. Inoa turns 16 in September, so he wonít be eligible to sign until his birthday.
In the two innings he worked, just...
The offseason is here, but that doesn't mean that prospect talk has to end. There's the instructional leagues, the AFL, the winter leagues (where Tabata will play) and then the off-season for baseball where prospects might be lost or acquired and the Rule 4 draft.
Also, that damn BA popup was annoying the heck out of me.
BOLD= Signed (bonus or assignment confirmed)
RED = unconfirmed signing
Round Overall Player Position School State BONUS
1 32 Cito Culver SS Irondequoit HS, Rochester, N.Y. N.Y. $954,000

3 112 Rob Segedin 3B Tulane La. $377,500
4 145 Mason Williams OF West Orange HS, Winter Garden, Fla. Fla. $1,450,000
its after 12 EST, so its offically draft day!
the yankees are about to add a ton of talent to the system, and there figures to be some intriguing options at 28 and 44
RHP Danilo Alvarez (Nicaragua)
Throws 90 mph with good composure
Supposedly has a good curveball
Figured I'd get this started. Will update more later along with whenever someone signs
28) RHP Gerrit Cole = Unsigned
44) LHP Jeremy Bleich = Unsigned
75) RHP Joseph Bittle = Unsigned
106) 2B David Adams = Signed
140) SS Corbin Joseph = Signed
170) LF Christopher Smith = Signed
200) RHP Brett Marshall = Signed
230) C Kyle Higashioka = Signed
I know we're all expecting bigger things in May so lets follow that action here.
Starting the month off on a hign note after ending April with wins from top to bottom, including some strong performances all around. As the weather gets warmer and Phil Hughes begins his AA tour, this should be an exciting month. Let the games begin. :D
i know how ridiculously early this is, as we havent even had a business day since the draft ended.
i figured i would start this since the college WS is rolling along and there is a ton of top talent playing good teams. i just made a top 10
1 Steven Strasburg-RHP-SDST
2 Mychal Givens-SS-HS FL
I'm creating this thread to follow the draft live... pick by pick.... enjoy!!!
Outstanding job by Cashman, he is really showing us that he is well capable of run this machine with both short-term goals and a long-term vision for the next decade in charge of running the show. There are tons of directions he can spin this in the off-season but better believe he has an eye on getting extra draft picks to continue fueling the development machine. Goodbye C.J. Henry, the day-dreams of your potential might just be that, best of luck. On to August, along with all this heat...
Since we've been talking about draft prospects lately, its only smart that we have one of these.
I'll start it off, if the draft was today who would the yanks pick and it has to be reasonable.
The summer has started and the draft is days away. Should be an exciting month with plenty of chatter.
i thought its time to fire this bad by up, with the CWS going on and the CCL and other wood bat leagues starting up soon.
bryce harper has apparently enrolled in a CC, which would be the big new. and we should bring jersey's own anthony ranaudo back home
We reached the halfway point in the season and July promises to be the busiest month of the year. The additions of Ian Kennedy, Joba Chamberlin, Dellin Betances, Mark Melancon and Colin Curtis are eagerly awaited. Along with the start of the 2006 Intlí signing period which starts on July 2nd, here are the top prospects to familiarize yourself with.
C Francisco Pena (DR)
C Jesus Montero (Ven) 6-3, 225, 16 yrs
C Rasmel Perez (Ven) 5-10, 180, Bats:R
SS Carlos Triunfel (DR) 5-11, 175...
A lot to follow in the last full month of minor league play.
