In case you’re wondering, the Short Season Staten Island (June 19th), Rookie level Pulaski (June 23rd), and both Rookie level GCL Yanks (June 22nd) teams start their seasons relatively soon. Those rosters will be chock full of 2015 draft and international prospects from the last few signing periods.
