  • DERP

    Haslup is a stud. He is going to be great for us.

    • Havok9120

      We’re already hugging a relief pitcher in Staten Island?

      0_o

  • Laz

    Really hope Vidal Nuno goes up to AAA start of next year. Scouts aren’t high on him, but he keeps runs down.

    • Bo Knows

      Scouts aren’t high on him because he’s 25 years old, doesn’t throw really hard and he’s mostly beating up on younger competition.

  • Ron

    Bautista love growing. 6-7 with control and velocity.

    • YanksFanInBeantown

      That was Dellin Betances

      Once upon a time…

      • Ron

        Betances always walked people. Just not at this insane rate like this year. While its still 2 early Bautista does seem to throw strikes.

  • Gilbert J.

    Is it just me or do the RBI’s in AAA add up to 12? Other than that a great day for AAA batters and an average day for everyone else. Seems like none of the higher prospects played today :(

  • Smart Guy

    september call ups should include saxon butler and he should be penciled in as team captain and cleanup hitter

  • Richard Leo

    Rafael De Paula today
    4IP OER 2H 4K 6GO/2FO

    • YanksFanInBeantown

      2 hits?

      DFA.

  • Travelbug83

    According to Mike Vander Woude Mustelier has “an infected right elbow”.

    • Havok9120

      Gangrene? That’s a shame.

  • Rehobie

    Really like the bats on the prospects. Trenton should have Flores, Slade and Austin next year. Williams and Gamel for Tampa. With aging team I expect at least 2 new outfielders in the future. My picks are Slade and Austin
