The "rotation" in Scranton-Wilkes Barre (which may soon be the one on NYC)

OK, it's happened. I'm rattled. Mayday, mayday, mayday...The latest Pineda setback - plus the visit from St. Tommyjohn to Jose Campos and Ivan Nova - have blown my circuitry. From now on, I'm giving all our starters the 1,000-yard stare. If a new guy shows up, why bother to learn his name? The old ones? Keep Dr. Andrews on speed-dial. CC Sabathia hasn't gone the last...

Pin Notes – Roster Moves and Campos Surgery

Jose Campos Some minor league goings on to report about. First off the young 21-year old pitcher Jose Campos had Tommy John surgery this week. Campos was part of the Michael Pineda and Jesus Montero trade a few years ago. Campos hasn’t been much of a factor since being acquired from the Seattle Mariners. He’s been down in Single-A Charleston since 2012 and has seen his share...

Hector Noesi has done the Yankees proud

The Mariners have cut bait on Noesi.You know what gets me? Michael Pineda hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game as a Yankee yet. Jose Campos still hasn’t pitched above Single-A. Pineda’s in the rotation so he’s about to start paying dividends, but to this point, the Yankees have gotten nothing at all from that trade. The Mariners have gotten -1.5 WAR. Or, if you prefer...

Hot News: Baseball America concludes that the Yankee farm system is struggling: Is it us, or the system that rates systems?

Baseball American - the Mooney's Financial Rating System of baseball - has listed the Yankees as one of five organizations whose farm system had a crummy first half.

New York Yankees Looking Good In The Montero/Pineda Trade

Remember that trade?  On January 23rd, 2012 the New York Yankees sent Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to the Seattle Mariners for Jose Campos and Michael Pineda.

Yankee Stadium on July 1, 2010 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Unlike the past decade, or since the infamous Core Four, the Yankee brass wants to depend on the farm system to produce the team’s future stars. The last homegrown star to come up was Brett Gardner back in 2008. Here are four of the Yankees top prospects that I think have...

As a life-long Toronto Blue Jays fan it’s not easy to like the Yankees. As a prospect analyst, though, I can’t help but love the organization’s minor league system.
