As Joe mentioned earlier, Triple-A Scranton’s roster is basically set. Same deal with Double-A Trenton and Low-A Charleston. I’m glad to the see the Yanks took the right approach with Eduardo Nunez and Austin Jackson, leaving them at Charleston so they can get themselves together as opposed to rushing them. I do think they’re making a mistake by sending Tim Norton to Charleston instead of High-A Tampa, but it will be fun to see him put up 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER,Â 1 BB,Â 9 K lines until he’s promoted.
Speaking of High-A Tampa, via the highly scientific process of elimination I can tell you that Tampa’s rotation is going to consist of George Kontos, Ian Kennedy, Joba Chamberlain, and 2 guys to be named later (I’m thinking Zack Kroenke and relievers until Lance Pendleton is ready in late April, but just imagine if Christian Garcia was healthy). The lineup will have (in no particular order) Colin Curtis, Marcos Vechionacci, Jose Tabata, Ben Jones, Juan Miranda andÂ Tim Battle, amongst others.
Forget aboutÂ Scranton, that team in Tampa is going to be stacked. Â Like 2005 Jacksonville Suns stacked.
