News Update

- the Yanks were shut down last night by Josh Fogg. As if that's not surprising enough, the game was played a mile above sea level!

- Josh Phelps was demoted to Triple-A Scranton and Andy Phillips was recalled.

- the Short Season Staten Island Yankees and rookie level Gulf Coast League Yankees began their seasons yesterday, both losing. SI's top prospects are three pitchers: Dellin Betances, Zach McAllister and Angel Reyes. The top GCL prospects include infielders Abraham Almonte and Prilys Cuello.

- Phil Hughes will begin throwing within a week. That's very good news. I could see him joining the big club in early August after a few minor league rehab starts.

- the Yanks signed two Chinese teenagers to minor league deals.

- EJ Fagan finished his analysis and ranking of the Yanks top 30 prospects. Definitely worth a read.
