    He sat 91-93 but threw a metric ton of curveballs and changeups. Kratz was actively calling the game around his offspeed stuff. I think when/if Adams is called up he starts off in relief to get his feet wet.

    Florial over 36% K rate. Swinging and missing at a lot of power stuff. Ugh.

    This is a very outrageous comment. In my opinion, there s no basis to even begin to support this statement.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Gleyber's call-up was a bit of a weird moment for me, as I'm sure it was for many other posters here. I'm realizing that it's the first time since 2016 that I'm significantly more excited about the major league roster than the farm system. In 2016, the farm was all we had to look forward to, when the Yankees were mediocre and we added Tores, Frazier, and Sheffield. In 2017, the major league team took great leaps forward, but the prospect of 60 FV guys in Andujar and Torres in the pipeline still had me equally excited to watch the minors as I was for the majors. But now, the most highly regarded of those prospects have graduated, and I find myself missing the anticipation of checking Down on the Farm each morning.

    There's certainly much to still be excited about in our farm. There's Florial and his potential to put up 30-30 seasons. Sheffield looks promising, Tate is picking up, and I'm sure that the combination of Abreu, Medina, and Perez will yield, at worst, our next Betances. Undeniably, though, the quality of the farm system has dropped quite a bit, lacking a bona fide blue chip guy. It's a bittersweet reminder that baseball is cyclical, that windows open and close. I know it's laughably early to be saying these types of things; our window is only opening now. Yet, following the minor leagues is my favorite part of being a Yankee fan. I love watching these guys grow and develop-- when Sanchez and Severino and Judge killed it in 2017, it felt like an affirmation of all the time we spent caring about what college-aged kids do on ballfields in Trenton and Charleston. I can't wait for the next wave. Go Yankees.

    Strasburg now pitches exclusively from the stretch. He switched for injury concerns.

    Well said.

    IMO, we're really missing high end SP talent near the majors. Dodgers just called up Buehler who is fire. I wish we had that.

    Justus is intruiging but he almost has a BB/9 of 6 in AA. He needs to sharpen up over the coming months. That's always been an issue for him. Who else do we have that's close and potentially high end? I struggle to think of anyone.

    Over the years the thing I've found is that those guys just jump up suddenly and can move pretty fast on that trajectory. A guy like Florial was nowhere but a toolsy dream entering last season and suddenly he's well into national top-100 lists and in our conversations as a major part of the future. Jose Guzman was another guy who was all talent but shot up to levels that none of us thought were likely at last year's outset. Possible? Of course. But not probable.

    I know you said close, and those guys are lower level guys, but I personally think the premise holds, and it's why I'm not that worried as the farm appears to have been drained of talent. The Yankees have been doing an awesome job of bringing the raw materials into their system, and I think it's just a matter of time before the next Montgomery, Green, etc. pops up and exceeds what we thought was probable out of them.

    I've really got my eye on Loaisiga in this vein. I think he's in the Majors way sooner than we'd have thought probable last winter, and he's got high-grade stuff. And obviously I feel that way about Abreu, too, if he ever toes a rubber again, that is. All it takes is that one bit of traction and these kind of guys can suddenly be ML ready and knocking on the door by the second half of this season.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    I definitely agree with your overall point. Guys seem to shoot up and come out of no where. However, the reality of a SP prospect making a ML impact is innings. A guy like Jonathan Loaisiga isn't close to being able to pitch a ML season. Has he ever thrown even 100 IP before? That's why I was always so bearish on Kap.

    Monty had the innings and pedigree which always made him a ML option for me. I'm not seeing any of those at the moment outside of Sheff who has a lot to sharpen. Also as Sey recently pointed out it's hard to get excited about some of these guys putting up video game K/BB rates (eg Gallegos) in the mL.

    Even though the two guys I wanted got injured, Cash needs to shift our position players into SP assets. The well is dry. Cough Littell. Cough cough.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Another thing that's bittersweet about all these graduations is that moving forward, even our successful prospects are far less likely to see time in a Yankee uniform. We're moving into that "consolidate your assets into current proven talent" phase of the win curve. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, which the Cubs, Astros, and Indians have proven in recent years. After you fill a certain number of positions, your prospects are worth more as trade chips than they are as roster pieces. I think that time just started now.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Dunno, obviously Andujar and Torres looking like they're up for good makes AAA less fun to follow, but they still have Florial (who is still slated as the starting CF in 2020 if he stays on track), plus Frazier and McKinney once they're back for position players, and this kid Duran seems exciting.

    But the pitchers are what's worth watching now, there are at least 15-20 guys throughout the system with real potential. I agree that none seem able to help us in the near term, so it still might make sense to trade Frazier or Drury to the Braves for one of their many pitchers who are close to ready, but we will need to be a little patient for our internal pipeline to start spitting out MLB-ready pitchers.

    In three starts thus far for Trenton, Tate is 1-0 with a 1.90 ERA. He has allowed just eight hits and issued two free passes while fanning 13 batters in his 15 innings of work. Eastern League opposition is hitting just .157 against him.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    How his stuff looked through three starts though? Heard velo is good but bringing along that changeup will dictate whether he can stick as a starter IMO.
