Jorge Vazquez won the International Leagues player of the week for this past week.  There are rumbling around the Yankee system that a few promotions are about to take place soon.  One that has already taken place is Manny Banuelos being promoted to AAA and is set to start tonight's game.  It has also been rumored that Jesus Montero would be called up to the big leagues very shortly.  This would mean that Austin Romine would most likely be promoted to AAA.  There have also been rumblings that Dellin Betances would be called up to AAA.  All of this means that the Scranton/Wilkes Barre lineup and rotation may look very different from right now in the next few weeks.
