David Phelps is the only player out there yet to make his debut, but he will soon. Maybe even tomorrow.

    Who the hell is Ronnie?

      I see what you’re doing Axisa.

    Just trying to get some fans guesses on a few players in the minors next year. What do you think will happen to Kevin Russo, Greg Golson, Justin Maxwell, Doug Bernier. These are the 4 off the top of my head I was wondering about. Thanks

      All of those players provide nice depth. .. Don’t forget about Colin Curtis.

        Do you know their contract status though? I like all of them a lot but believe they are all FA’s. If they are will they be brought back?

  • Brian S.

    Would you say that out of those four players, Burawa is the only one that has a shot of making it on the Yankees?

    • CaptRon

      Chase Whitley should make the grade for the Yanks.

    I saw Burawa in the Cape Cod league last year. At least 10 MLB scouts believed he’d make the majors. I know, because I asked all of them.
