Chad Bell talks to some coaches prior to batting practice (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)


From The Back Fields To The Bronx: We’re Back In 2022

On the latest episode of From The Back Fields To The Bronx, the show is back in 2022 and we catch you up on everything that has gone on in the New York Yankees organization this winter from a minor league perspective. Ricky Keeler is joined by Tampa Tarpons/FCL beat writer John Brophy and Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders beat writer Alex Kielar for this episode.

The episode begins with John talking about his time covering Yankees prospect mini-camp and some of his observations when watching Anthony Volpe take batting practice, how Jasson Dominguez looks in camp, and who has impressed him amongst players he didn’t see live in 2021, including Hayden Wesneski.

Then, the trio looks at the biggest Yankees storylines of the offseason, such as Rachel Balkovec being the new Tarpons manager this year and some of the new coaches at the major league level being promoted from within the minors (Dillon Lawson, Desi Druschel, Casey Dykes).

Of course, the conversation also goes towards the ongoing MLB lockout and some of the stories where the minor leagues could be directly impacted.

Keep an eye out for future episodes of From The Back Fields To The Bronx as the minor league season gets closer.
