Pinstriped Prospects Weekly Roundup: March 5, 2017


We are already into the third week of spring training.  Game results generally are not important this time of year.  It’s more about preparing the players both mentally and physically for the upcoming six-month grind.  It is also a time for teams to look at younger players from their farm system.

Obviously, it’s always a lot more fun to win.  That said, the New York Yankees must be having a lot of fun.  They have started out 8-2 through their first 10 games of play in the Grapefruit League.  Contributions are coming from all over:  veterans, free agent signings, young regulars, and prospects.  Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Holiday, Greg Bird, and Gary Sanchez have all started off very hot.  All five candidates for the final two spots in the rotation have had strong outings, in particular Adam Warren and Bryan Mitchell.

Here are some of the stats that I have put together for the Yankees’ prospects, based on MLB.com’s box scores:

Thairo Estrada              2-3, 2 HR, 3 R, 4 RBI                                .667/.667/2.667

Billy McKinney              5-8, 2 BB, 2 HR, 2 2B, 4 R, 5 RBI             .625/.700/1.625

Kyle Higashioka            4-7, BB, HR, 2B, 2R, RBI                           .571/.625/1.143

Gleyber Torres             5-9, BB, 2 2B, 4 R, 2 RBI                           .556/.600/.778

Aaron Judge                  6-14, HR, 3B, 2 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI                     .429/.500/.786

Didi Gregorius has joined the Netherlands’ team for the World Baseball Classic.  Dellin Betances, Tyler Clippard, and Tommy Layne are also expected to join their international teammates in the next couple of days, the Dominican Republic, the United States, and Italy, respectively.

After not pitching for most of the 2016 season, James Kaprielian pitched 27 innings in the Arizona Fall League.  The team has decided to start him off slow this spring, pitching him only in simulated games during spring training.  He has an innings limit this year which means if they want him to pitch in September (possibly in New York), he needs to wait to get his season started.

I have not heard any injury updates on Tyler Austin, Mason Williams, Ronald Herrera, or James Reeves.  Based on the original timetables given at the time of their injuries, Williams should resume baseball activities this week.

Here is an update on the four players that the Yankees lost through the Rule 5 Draft at the 2016 winter meetings:  Luis Torrens has gone 0-6 with a run scored.  Tyler Jones has pitched 2.1 innings, striking out 4, giving up 2 runs, 1 earned (3.86 ERA).  Caleb Smith has pitched an innings, giving up an earned run for a 9.00 ERA.  Tyler Webb has pitched 3 innings, without giving up a run.  He has allowed 2 hits, 1 walk, and struck out a batter.
