    AAA
    Jesus Montero, C: 1 for 4, 1 K - he also hit a foul ball into a garbage bag that was being carried by an usher with his back to the play … they should call him up just for that, that’s amazing
    Jorge Vazquez, 1B: 0 for 4, 3 K – back after missing two games with the hand injury

    AA
    Did not play.

    Low A
    Slade Heathcott, CF: 3 for 5, 3 R, 1 3B, 1 K – eight of this last 18 (.444)

    Ramon Flores: 1 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K-played 1B and not LF today.

    three straight days without Gary Sanchez....what's going on?

    Dellin Betances, RHP: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 5-3 GB/FB – the strikeouts are cool, but the lack of walks is most important … he’d been struggling with his control big time over his previous three starts (13 BB in 15.2 IP), so it’s good to see him get that straightened out.

    Yankees interested in Roberto Osuna

    Via Roberto Espinoza (link in Spanish), the Yankees are one of several teams with serious interest in 15-year-old Mexican right-hander Roberto Osuna, who they watched throw last week. He will turn 16 on July 2nd, so he will be eligible to sign this year. Osuna is the nephew of former Yankee Antonio Osuna and a 6-foot-0, 198 lb. hurler with an idea of how to use three pitches: a low-90′s fastball, a curveball, and a changeup. He’s currently pitching in the Mexican League (5.49 ERA in 19.2 IP), which is somewhere between Double-A and Triple-A in terms of competition.

    Osuna is one of the top pitching prospects available on the international market this year, and he’s expected to command a seven-figure bonus. The Yankees have never given an international pitcher seven-figures (not counting vets Jose Contreras or Hideki Irabu), but they tried to with Michael Ynoa. Because he is property of a Mexican League club, Osuna will only receive 25% of his bonus. The rest goes to his team. The Yankees have a very strong presence in Mexico thanks to scout Lee Sigman, who helped broker deals for Manny Banuelos and Al Aceves in the not too distant past

    Yankees signed Miguel Andujar for $750,000

    .Via Pedro J. Briceño, the Yankees have signed Dominican third baseman Miguel Andujar for $750,000. The 16-year-old was considered one of their top targets during this international free agent signing period, and is said to have “good bat speed, an advanced righthanded swing and has shown the ability to hit both fastballs and offspeed pitches.” Here’s some video.

    Also here's an update on some of the Yankees signed IFA's. Rafael DePaula, who signed with the Yankees for six-figures over the winter. DePaula had an interview with the U.S. Consolate last month and is awaiting a visa after being suspended for age and identity fraud. Juan Carlos Paniagua, who signed for $1.1M, is also awaiting a visa. Neither player’s contract will become official until they actually get the okay to come to the United States

    Yankees promote top pitching prospect Manny Banuelos to Triple-A

    This may not be the Yankees’ biggest move of the day, but it is notable that the club promoted its top pitching prospect, left-hander Manny Banuelos, to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    Banuelos, who becomes the International League’s youngest player at age 20, was 4-5 with a 3.59 ERA and a 94/52 K/BB ratio in 95 1/3 innings for Double-A Trenton. He was inconsistent with his command, but he went the first two months of the season without giving up a homer and left-handers hit just .229 off him.

    Because of Banuelos’ success against left-handers, there’s some speculation that he could be called up to serve as a member of the Yankee pen down the stretch. He turned some heads by flashing dominant stuff in one-inning appearances this spring, and the Yankees do need some help from the left side.

    You mean besides not over paying for Ubaldo Jimenez?....

    Or not over paying for Wandy "the Lemon" Rodriguez?....

    Or being just a game out of first place in the AL East?....

    Or having Jesus Montero coming up to the show some time this month?....

    Yeah, I guess besides all that, that's all we Yankee fans have to talk about.
