    I'm probably coming from a bias perspective of being a Yankee fan.

    But the Yankees have to be one of the slowest teams in promoting their hitting talent.

    Forget Tyler Austin or even someone like Mason Williams who both would have probably been already promoted in other organizations from Low A to high A.

    Just look at Gary Sanchez basically repeating low A after the year he put up last year(.820 OPS as a 18 year old)

    Other top prospects would have been promoted on simply having spent a full year at low A irrelevant of putting up impressive numbers nevermind impressive ones like Sanchez.

    He's doing a good job of not being "bored" many prospects in his position would be frustrated as hell.

    Also just to be clear I'm talking specifically about hitting prospects, pitching prospects are obviously a completely different animal.

    You look at other organizations and their top prospect guys putting up ok hitting statistics nothing spectacular and they get promoted all the time specifically in the lower levels and might even do better in the next level then they were doing before they moved up which usually has something to do with that top hitting prospect getting a confidence boost from the promotion and thus taking off.

    I agree they're slow as hell. On another board somebody stated that if Harper or Trout were Yankees, they would still be in AA not the majors.

    Um, the parent club is stacked, no need to rush them like a Senator or Oriole type team. It seems when players are called up from AAA they are ready, so their formula seems to work.

    Re: June 2012 Minor League Thread

    I never said rush them, was discussing our organizations propensity to do the absolute opposite of rushing when it comes to our hitting prospects.

    Was more arguing for a logical middle ground

    I think I was pretty clear in what I said.

    When it comes to your point it really doesn't matter how "stacked" the big club is, if you have a talented hitting prospect who is just as talented knocking on the door in the hypothetical world of that prospect improving as he keeps getting moved up at a reasonable, realistic level they will find room for him.

    Sanchez left the game after a collision at the plate.

    I see that one of the best Yankee draft picks of recent years, Jeremy Bleich, has returned (GCL) from shoulder surgery.

    The Rays took Beckham #1 for the entire draft that year instead of Posey or even Eric Hosmer. The Red Sox chose Bryan Price at the back end of the first round too.

    You're forgetting that the Yankees must nail every pick in their draft or face the scorn and mockery of THEBOSS84.

    Nope, I have only mocked them for two early-round picks since I've been here (around the time each player was drafted) - Bleich and Culver.
