Bronson Sardinha

Promoted to AAA Columbus a few weeks ago, hitting .272 on the year in AA & AAA. But since coming to columbus, he's tearing it up: 19 games, .358 BA, 4 HR, 1.091 OPS!

I watched Columbus play on YES last Thursday when the Yanks were off. He went 1-4, but easily could've gone 3-4. He hit 2 line drives, one for a single, the other was right at the 2B. He looked bad striking out once, and he hit a long drive to the RF warning track that was caught, but which would've been a 3-run HR in the stadium, what with the short porch and all (Cooper Stadium is 330 to RF). He also has a very strong arm, the reason he plays RF.

The only cons are his speed (0 SB this year) and his age, 23. He's almost to the point where he becomes a caree minor leaguer. I do think he'll get called up to the show in september, but if he's not with the Yanks within 2 years (and I dont see it, with Matsui, Melky, Abreu), he might as well be traded, to at least give the Yanks something they CAN use, instead of another corner OF.
