Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders
Bryan Mitchell

You would be hard pressed to find a pitcher doing better than Bryan Mitchell for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

He has allowed 3 earn runs in a game once this season and has struck out 24 over 25.1 innings of work. His best start came on April 25 when he threw 7 inning of one-run baseball against the Pawtucket Red Sox, striking out 6 batters and walking just one. Through the first month of the season he is the owner of a 2.84 ERA.

Class-A Advance Tampa Yankees
Jonathan Holder

You can’t help but be impressed with the progress right-hander Jonathan Holder has shown during his young professional career. During his college career he was a reliever, appearing in no more than 34 games in a season. But once he turned pro the Yankees saw something in him and have been in the rotation. He has excelled so far for the Tampa Yankees of the Florida State League. In five games he has pitched a 2.39 ERA, striking out 22 over 26.1 innings of work walking just 7 batters. His best start came on April 11 when he made his debut against the Lakeland Flying Tigers, pitching 6 shutout innings allowing three hits and striking out 4. On April 22 he struck out a career high 7 batters against the Clearwater Threshers.
