Whelan, Miranda returning to the AzFL


The Yanks apparently have decided on the final two players they’ll be sending to the desert this fall: second time AzFLers Juan Miranda & Kevin Whelan. So it looks like I misremembered, for some reason I thought they only had one pitcher spot empty, but I guess they never filled that second infield spot. Scott Aldred, Double-A Trenton’s pitching coach, will serve the same role with the team in Arizona, which is great because he’s familiar with all the pitchers the Yanks are sending. Season starts Oct. 7th. (h/t Chad Jennings)

    I can understand Miranda going but Kevin Whelan? What about Joba, Hughes, Kennedy, Humberto, Garcia? These are the pitchers who should be going.

  2. Steve says:

    Any opportunity we get to teach Whelan how to throw strikes is worthwhile.

  3. eVizions says:

    wow, I really was hoping Joba would be going to get those extra innings that he missed this year. Guess there goes ANY hope of him starting in the rotation next year.
