Josh Norris put together a series of posts on the four full season minor league affiliates, complete with quotes from scouts about various players in the Yankees’ farm system. “He’s an absolute front-line catcher with plus power,” said one of those scouts about Gary Sanchez, who is rocking Low-A Charleston for the second straight year. Not everyone drew a rave review, however. Here are the links for Triple-A Empire State, Double-A Trenton, High-A Tampa, and Low-A Charleston.
Norris also posted interviews with Short Season Staten Island manager Justin Pope and VP of Baseball Ops Mark Newman. Pope spoke about his team for the summer — their season starts tonight — while Newman spoke more about the lower levels of the farm system in general. Make sure you check out the two interviews as well as the four state of the system posts, they’re all well worth your time.
