    Called it. He's having the surgery this week.

    It was bad enough that he essentially missed an entire season of development this year, but he may have to miss all of next year as well. Terrible, terrible news.

    Sometimes its absolutely unbelievable the level of incompetence the Yankees show when handling good pitching talent. Makes me sick
    Couldn't have put it better myself. This doesn't help "us" in getting under $189 million either. I was hoping for Banuelos to be a cheap option for us as at least a back end starter for 2014.

    outfielder Zoilo Almonte is headed home to the Dominican Republic to play winter ball in a few weeks. He played there last year, but only got into eleven games and hit .171/.216/.200 in 35 at-bats. The various winter leagues start in a few weeks, so more assignments should trickle out soon.Almonte, 23, is on the 40-man roster and produced a 123 wRC+ with 21 homers in 450 plate appearances for Double-A Trenton this year. The switch-hitter has hit righties better than lefties throughout his career, though he only drew 23 unintentional walks in those 450 plate appearances this summer (102 strikeouts). Almonte figures to move up to Triple-A Scranton next year, but I suppose there’s an outside chance*he’ll audition for the right field job*if*Nick Swisher*is allowed to walk and the Yankees don’t bring in a viable replacement

    Sucks about Banuelos. Now we really don't have much in the way of major league close high-end pitching talent.


    Derek Jeter is a lucky man.

    Article on Trenton prospects by Marc Hulet.

    http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index...-york-yankees/

    He doesn't have a lot of good to say about the guys he comments on other than Graham Stoneburner and Mark Montgomery. He thinks Stoneburner should be taken by another team as a Rule 5 if the Yanks don't add him to the 40 man.

    I don't want to sound like the bad sheep here but I called his injury issues before(and even when he was dominating).

    Sad news for the kid idd.

    Why Is it that we can't bring up a prospect when he's 20? Other teams seem to do it

    Exactly.

    Lets 'season' them for 5 years til they are useless.

    Either you can play or you can't.

    You telling me Sanchez or Mason couldn't put up the same numbers as Andruw jones? C'mon...

    The Yankees finished the third best record in baseball (behind the Nationals and Reds) this season, meaning they will have the 29th overall pick in the 2013 Draft. A compensation pick for the Pirates failing to sign last year’s first rounder earlier in the draft pushes everything back one spot, which is why the Yankees aren’t picking 28th. I’ll get our Draft Order page up and running soon enough, but Conor Glassey has the preliminary order pieced together right here.

    The Bombers have held the 29th overall pick once before, using it to take OF Slade Heathcott in 2009. Slot money for that pick was $1.625M this year, so expect a similar number next year. The Yankees could receive up to three supplemental first round picks depending on what happens with Nick Swisher, Hiroki Kuroda, and Rafael Soriano this winter. All three impending free agents (Soriano is likely to opt-out) seem like locks for qualifying offers (in the $13.3-13.4M range) and could sign elsewhere, sending those extra picks to New York.
