    A-Jax has had a pretty impressive playoffs this season. Showing power, getting walks and etc. Robbed twice, get stronger A-Jax.

    • Brandon

      Colin Curtis is hitting .400 in this years AA playoffs.

  • Mike R.

    I love that our prospects seem to step it up for big games. Hughes, A-Jax, Montero. Hope that trend continues.

  • Jack

    So, what kind of stuff does Jhonny Nunez have? Is he a legitimate prospect?

  • BigYank1

    Check out this picture of AJax robbing the 1st homerun!


    Simply amazing!

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Wow. I added it to the post, thanks for the heads up.

    • Ivan

      Well he use to be a basketball player so he has some hops.

  • Ivan

    What an “inspiring” play by A-JAX.

  • Ivan

    So much for the college football game of the year.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Wow. An outfielder who can catch a ball at the wall. Is it possible?

    • Ivan

      Melky could but he doesn’t count.

      • Brandon

        Not at that height, Action jumped about 40 inches off that ground, look at his left shoulder nearly being above that wall.

          I can do that in my sleep. ;-)

        • Ivan

          Looks like the Jordan symbol.

  • Manimal

    Presumably, he will start at AAA next year, right?

    • http://www.mvn.com/milb-yankees Ashish Skaria

      Yea, that’s what Cashman’s said. But of course, Austin will be invited to spring training. Wouldn’t it be exciting if he made the team straight out of camp?

  • Hitman

    Jackson had a pretty disappointing season based on his tampa numbers last year.

  • A.D.

    nice lines for that AA pen
