Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?
We've been getting by for a long time now with requiring links to the original when posting the full text of an article from another web site.
However, those days are over effective immediately.
If you would like to post an article, please be aware of the following guidelines.
The only things permitted in your post are:

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.
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.
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.
RHP Danilo Alvarez (Nicaragua)
Throws 90 mph with good composure
Supposedly has a good curveball
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...
Hopefully this month will showcase Tabata's power and Chamberlain's dominance.
Go to it
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 won’t be eligible to sign until his birthday.
In the two innings he worked, just...
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
2 82 Angelo Gumbs OF Torrance (Calif.) HS Calif. $750,000
3 112 Rob Segedin 3B Tulane La. $377,500
4 145 Mason Williams OF West Orange HS, Winter Garden, Fla. Fla. $1,450,000
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
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 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:
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
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.
In the past I believe we've kept the signing news to one thread and updated the list by bolding the players that have signed.
Please post links to articles online announcing signings. I ask that you please refrain from posting that you've "heard" so-and-so signed. I'd like to keep this as accurate as possible.
BOLD = SIGNED
BOLD = PLAYING IN CAPE COD
BOLD = PLAYING IN NORTHWOODS LEAGUE
BOLD = PLAYING IN ALASKA BASEBALL LEAGUE
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

AUSTIN, Texas — No surprise Saturday to see Roger Clemens on the Texas sideline.
Joba Chamberlain? Now that's a different story.
The former All-America pitcher at Nebraska stood with his New York Yankees teammates on the UT sideline in the first half with Clemens' two youngest boys, Kody, 13, and Kacy, 11. Clemens, who pitched for the Longhorns in 1982 and 1983, wore a burnt orange shirt and UT visor with his baseball number from college, 21, stitched into the side.
Here's a list of the players in this class:
Itaneil Arias Guzman – Outfielder - Dominican Republic –
Julio Teheran – Right-hand Pitcher – Columbia – (SIGNED BRAVES) ($850,000 bonus)
Moises Montero – Catcher - Dominican Republic –
Israel Perez – Left-hand Pitcher – Dominican Republic –
Jesus Valdez-Adames – Right-hand Pitcher – Dominican Republic –
Lukas Egetmeyer – Catcher/Outfielder – Germany
José José – Outfielder – Dominican Republic –
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
I'm creating this thread to follow the draft live... pick by pick.... enjoy!!!
The end of the minor league season is here and through the course of the offseason we can discuss who elevated their games and who regressed. Along with rankings, reports, transactions and all the other stuff minor league related to get us through the fall and winter.

Last full month of the minor league season.
Short season month!
Because it's not September anymore.
We probably should have one thread with a list of the Yankees draftees who are signed to contracts by the Yankees. I'll start with the news below.<p>The right handed high school pitcher Manny Barreda has signed a contract with the Yankees. Below is an article about him.
Below is the link to an article on Yankees draftee, the college outfielder Dave Williams of Rutgers University, who the Yankees will sign today....
