Forum: Around The Minors

Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?

  1. Good day for prospects not named Jimenez

    Nick Johnson and Juan Rivera both hit home runs today (both in losing causes, sadly) to celebrate their being named to play in All-Star Futures game in Seattle. This will be the second such game for The Stick, who also played in the Futures game in Boston in '99. Remember, that was the game where current second baseman (and star of today's game against Detroit) Alfonso Soriano was the MVP.

  2. Henson & Johnson Article

    http://www.timesdispatch.com/sports/MGBJ5XMVHOC.html It hasn't happened yet, but Drew Henson knows he will miss football, for sure by Labor Day. He's prepared. Henson began looking ahead at the fork in the road years ago. Baseball or football? "I love to get up every day and play a game," Henson said. "That's always been more attractive to me than what's involved in playing a football season." So instead of this quarterback preparing for his senior year at Michigan, from which he...

  3. Walling Will Give it Another Shot

    http://nydailynews.com/2001-06-27/Metro_Sports/Baseball/a-116350.asp Each time David Walling threw from the stretch position, the uneasiness came back. It was so crippling sometimes that he could think of nothing else but the runner on first base, his concentration turned to mush. "It was a battle for me to come set without the anxiety of needing to throw to first," Walling said. "I was too focused on the runner at first base instead of the batter, like I needed to be. I lost location on...

  4. John Sickels thoughts on Brandon Claussen

    Brandon Claussen, SP, New York Yankees (Norwich -- Double-A) John Sickels: Claussen has moved up quickly this year. He dominated high A ball in Tampa, and he's holding his own in Norwich. He still has some consolidation to do before he's ready to pitch in the bigs, but he's playing pretty well in Norwich. He might be a September callup in 2002. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/20010619huckabay.html

  5. The curse strikes Marte, Almonte and maybe others!!!!!

    I've done it again! For those who have seen my last post, you know what this is about, me accidentally destroying the carrers of any player I collect a card or autograph of. For the others who didn't see my last post, here's the story: Every time I buy a Yankee minor leaguer's card or get their autograph their career takes a turn for the worst, most of the time within a couple of weeks or so, but some within days! It's happened so many times, its almost scary....here's the list: Craig...

  6. Brett Jodie

    I am stupified, mystified, and downright clueless as to why this kid hasn't seen any major league ball yet. He's established himself in Columbus after playing for the Navigators last year. Two complete games, a shutout, a TON of innings pitched... Clearly he is no longer meant to pitch in the minors! The Yanks should send El Duquecito down and bring Jodie up. I don't want the Indians to get a chance to hammer Adrian again!!!

  8. Edison Reynoso News

    I know someone was asking about him and I saw this in today's NY Times: RHP Edison Reynoso, who was a spring training bullpen candidate for the Yankees before being sidelined by a groin injury, struck out five and allowed one hit over 3 2/3 shutout innings in his first outing for Class A Tampa on Wednesday night. Good for him!!

  9. Staten Island Yanks Love New Home - N Y Post

    http://www.nypostonline.com/sports/42333.htm By EVAN GROSSMAN June 25, 2001 -- The baseball last night was secondary on Staten Island. With a breathtaking view of the lower Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor, the Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George, home of the Staten Island Yankees, opened its doors for the first time. This may be minor- league baseball, but last night the Staten Island Yankees were treated like major-league All-Stars.

  12. Yankees' New Staten Island Ballpark Is Ready

    The Staten Island Yankees' new ballpark in St George, Staten Island, almost adjacent to the ferry terminal, is ready. I already posted a thread about the Brooklyn Cyclones' new Keyspan Park at Coney Island in this forum. And it looks really good from the outside, slightly better than this "Ballpark at St George", as it is called. But I cajoled my way in and got a good look at the inside of the place. It is beautiful with a direct view from the seats of New York harbor and the skyline....

  14. Brooklyn's New Minor League Field Inspires Big Dreams - N Y TIMES

    http://www.nytimes.com/2001/06/23/sports/23BASE.html by Andy Newman. The Slavin brothers, Irish boys from the neighborhood, were discussing the topic of the day at Farrell's tavern in Windsor Terrace. "It's the best thing that ever happened to Brooklyn," said John, 49. "Now we have something to call our own. It's not hard to get to, the seats are cheap." Mike Slavin, 38, was not convinced. "Single-A though," he reminded his older brother. "It's like high school baseball."

    Drew Henson Makes First AAA Start For Columbus The last time Drew Henson appeared in a blue uniform in Columbus, he threw three touchdown passes and ran for another with 1:18 left as Michigan won before the largest Ohio State home crowd ever. His latest appearance wasn't nearly as memorable. Wearing the blue pinstriped uniform of the Columbus Clippers on Monday night in his Triple-A debut, Henson -- now a third baseman instead of a quarterback -- was 0-for-4 with an error in a 9-5 loss to...
