Yankees Minor League Links March 2nd

Yankees Fans Unite have started a series where they go into detail about a specific Yankees prospect.  Today they profiled Tyler Austin.

Pinstripe Alley covers the Yankees Rule V draft selections.

Today was the first Yankees exhibition game and Lohud's Yankees blog goes over which pitchers (mostly prospects) are scheduled to pitch.

This is not minor league news but the MLB has officially gone to a ten team playoff.  This is major news so I thought I would post it.

Yankees Minor League Links Feb. 29th

Fan Graphs came out with there top 15 Yankees prospects.  The biggest surprise in there list is that Jose Campos is listed at #2.  In my top 10 I had him at #7 but Fan Graphs is a big fan.  They seem to think that it was a big steal by the Yankees to get him involved in the Montero trade.  The rest of the list is similar to the others I did and have posted.

I did a story a while back about Austin Romine being stuck in the system behind the other great catchers.  Lohud did an interview with him after the Montero trade and he seems relieved that he is now less stuck.  Although it could seem kind of harsh for him to say that he is happy Montero was traded,  this trade was mutually beneficial to both of them.  Montero got an assured starting spot in Seattle and Romine got one step closer to being the Yankees catcher.

Pinstripe Alley did a piece on the players that are now stuck in the system.  It is mostly middling infield prospects.
