I didn’t get to post this last night, but the Yankees were well represented in this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. Jesus Montero and Slade Heathcott ranked as the eighth and ninth hottest prospects in the minors over the last week, while Ramon Flores got some love under the Helium Watch. Montero is certainly no stranger to the Hot Sheet, but this was the first time for Slade and Flores, who have been fantastic in the early going.
Apparently the Yankees signed some teenage Australian outfielder named Adam Silva over the winter. The article describes him as a “strapping lad and hard-working athlete who has made a tremendous impression on scouts and baseball officials over the past few years.” So there’s your scouting report, he’s strapping.
Triple-A Scranton was rained out, though I’m not sure when they’re going to make this one up. Mark Prior will be joining their bullpen tomorrow.
Double-A Trenton was rained out as well. They’re going to play a doubleheader tomorrow. Kevin Millwood gets the ball in game one, Craig Heyer in game two.
