NoMaas interviews Mark Newman


The crew over at NoMaas interviewed Yankees’ senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman, and they discussed all things farm system. They touched on the draft, the international market, and of course players already in the system like Jesus Montero, Dellin Betances, Manny Banuelos, all the usual suspects. Make sure you check it out, tons of great stuff in there.

  1. GW: Is there a chance Mason Williams might see some time in the infield at any point in the future?

    MN: Right now, Mason is a centerfielder and we’re going to leave it like that for the time being.

    I didn’t even know we were considering Williams in the infield.

    Where at, 2B?

    • Carlosologist says:

      I remember reading a piece that said Williams played some third base, but I cannot remember the name of said piece.

  2. GW: Alright. Christopher Tamarez’s signing is official, no?

    MN: That one’s done. He’s a 16-year old shortstop, 6’1” 170. Big-time arm, very good hands. We like the swing. We thought he was the best shortstop in the Dominican this year. We think he’s got tools and we’ll see how he progresses. We think he’s got the aptitude and the work ethic.

    What the heck does nomaas name come from? I tried searching everywhere even on the nomaas site, but couldn’t get anyhwere… was it something to do with kevin mass?

  4. Reggie C. says:

    The part of Jo-Ram being shut down for the rest of the season is news to me. Fatigue in the arm of a 19 yr old cant be pushed.

    Newman really likes Angelo Gumbs. It’l be interesting to see and compare Cito Culver & Gumbs at whatever level they start, though I wonder if they’ll beon the same roster.

    Trenton’s rotation could be Brackman, Warren, Banuelos, Betances, Stoneburner.
