    Re: 2017 Yankee minor league news and notes..

    Full-season debutant: Drew Finley, RHP
    The San Diego native was New York's third-round pick in 2015, but 2017 will be his first full season in the Minors after he was limited to just six games last summer with Class A Short Season Staten Island due to elbow fatigue. One of those games was noteworthy, however, as Finley combined to pitch a no-hitter against rival Brooklyn in his season debut.
    The 20-year-old throws a low-90s fastball but is known for his curve. He's made just 18 Minor League appearances since he was drafted and allowed 11 home runs, so New York will look to see how the 6-foot-3 righty responds this season. In 27 1/3 innings last summer, he went 0-3 with a 4.28 ERA and 20 strikeouts.

    Finley will be interesting. I think this is the kid was the high spin rate.

    I thought the kid with the high spin rate was Nolan Martinez, drafted last year?????

    Not that Martinez didn't have something written about him, but Finley is definitely the spin rate draftee CP is taking about.

    Both are known for a high spin rate. Pre draft reports...

    Yep. Reports were fringy sruff (outside curveball) but this year we'll see if that was due to injury who simply who he is.

    Caleb Smith is returned from the Cubs, a Rule 5 pickup.

    Speaking of which, I pray that Torrens gets returned from San Diego.
