It’s the last stretch of the season for the New York Yankees’ farm system. The struggles of the Baby Bombers have been well documented, but with just about three weeks remaining, all four of the higher level squads are hovering around .500. While the playoffs are not likely for any of the affiliates, finishing .500 and staying competitive throughout the season can be looked at as a positive.
This week started off like most have this season. With the injury woes the Yankees have dealt with this season, more pitching changes have been made. Chris Leroux was called up from SWB and Bryan Mitchell returned from the Bronx. Elite pitching prospect Manny Banuelos seems to be heading to SWB for his fourth stop of the season. Despite all of that, there were still games to be played.
The Yankees farm affiliates battled some tough teams and tough weather. Two games were postponed from rain while the others were played to mixed results. Overall, the Baby Bombers went 2-3 on the evening. Here is how it all went down in today’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.
