    Re: Offseason Prospect Thread

    No yankees made Baseball America's top 20 Florida State League prospects.

    Any yankees get consideration for the list?
    Jim Shonerd: Wasn't a lot to see in Tampa, prospect-wise. Nobody was very close. Abraham Almonte, their center fielder, did get some mention as a guy who can run and throw and has some strength.

    As expected. Didn't think Joseph would make it and guys like Suttle and Mesa were hurt a lot and also had poor stats.

    Re: Offseason Prospect Thread

    Does Betances project as a future SP or RP to you?
    John Manuel: Really tough question; easier answer is always reliever. I always thought Chamberlain and Hughes would be starters, and here are the Yankees starting AJ Burnett tonight after using Freddy Garcia in this series. I think Betances deserves a lot of credit for making adjustments as he's gone up the ladder and becoming more of a strike-thrower despite a tough delivery to repeat and such a big body to control. His walk rate was much higher this year as he faced tougher competition, and he's going to go to Triple-A next year to see if he can improve that and throw more strikes. With his stuff, he just needs solid control; he doesn't need fine command. The odds are against him being a starter long-term in that organization, but I admit I've become a bit of a Betances guy over the years. His stuff is just so loud.

    Re: Offseason Prospect Thread

    Has the shiny tool-box that is Melky Mesa finally lost enough of his sheen that he can be considered a non-prospect unless he suddenly learns some plate discipline over the winter?
    John Manuel: Not a non-prospect yet but certainly has lost some sheen. You'd trade plate discipline for power with a guy like that, it's more likely that he regains some pop, he did have a back injury this year that seemed to affect that aspect of his game.

    Slade Heathcott had a second surgery on his injured shoulder late in the season according to Mark Newman in an article in the latest BA issue. He should be ready for spring training.

    Sure. No. 2 starter. @jznchang: How do you project Manny Banuelos long-term? All-Star caliber? #Yankees

    All references to Vizcaino or Gerrit Cole should be met with 20 lashes.

    I used to get so mad when I heard people talk about GC but I'm not like really upset over Vizcaino. You win some, you lose some.

    Agreed. It still kills me to think about our minor league system and the pitching depth if we had kept Viz and Cole would've just signed. Nothing the Yankees could've done about Cole if nothing else you have to be encouraged that they scouted him well. I was hesitant about the Vazquez deal from the get go, but I understood why they made the deal. Oh well we still have ManBan and Betances.

    Yankees decline Brackman's option so he's a free agent now.

    Does the team that signs him have to put him on the ML roster like in the Rule 5 draft? If not, I'm not sure why they just didn't pick up his option and give him another year to develop.
