• Mendoza to manage in AFL

    Rosters for the Arizona Fall League aren’t announced until August, but the Yankees’ organization already has one representative slated to go to the dessert, as Charleston Riverdogs’ manager Carlos Mendoza will be managing the Scottsdale Scorpions, the team the Yankees’ minor leaguers will be playing for. Which farm hands join him will be pretty interesting to see, as the Yankees’ top position prospects are already getting their first taste of a full season schedule, so I assume the team won’t send them off for even more action. Someone like Slade Heathcott, however, could get some additional work in by going out to Arizona.
