Manny Banuelos to pitch for Double-A Trenton tomorrow

Sorting through the Yankees' trade chips
2014 Draft: Chase Vallot

LHP Manny Banuelos is scheduled to pitch for Double-A Trenton tomorrow afternoon, according to Matt Kardos. He has been out a week or so with arm fatigue. After missing close to two full seasons and having Tommy John surgery, a little dead arm phase isn’t the most surprising thing in the world. I’m not sure if Banuelos will start or come out of the bullpen, but he’s been working short three and four-inning outings this year either way. Chances are they will take is slow his next few times out.

    Good luck, Manny.

  • Broke my leg

    Wow of course I have tickets for Friday not TOMMOROW. Wheelchair seats

  • W.B. Mason Williams

    Maybe he’ll end up being the Pineda of next year, shaky and uncertain kid who earns a spot in the rotation in Spring Training, pitches bananas and then gets hurt for a portion of the year.

    By then of course Pineda will be the cemented #2 behind #TANAK

      I’d take this year’s version of Pineda from Banuelos next year (provided Pineda returns to the same form he was in before his suspension/injury and also provided he truely is that #2 behind Tanaka next year).

    an 11:35am baseball game is unnatural.

      Unless you’re following a race in Boston. Yes.

    How many good appearances in a row before Yanks can bring him up? I go with one.

    • JohnnyC

      The kind of pitcher Cashman loves to collect: a guy who can’t pitch past the fifth inning even on a good night.

    • Jorge Steinbrenner

      I’ll take the over on that. Thank you.

    I thought it would be a good idea to catch an 11am AAA Braves game last year but apparently so did every school in the county and neighboring counties alike. I stood in line for three innings for lunch, it was brutal. Needless to say, unnatural indeed.
