A bit late on this, but Baseball America has released the New York Yankees Top 10 Prospects for 2011. And here it is:

1. Jesus Montero
2. Gary Sanchez
3. Dellin Betances
4. Manny Banuelos
5. Andrew Brackman
6. Austin Romine
7. Hector Noesi
8. Eduardo Nunez
9. Slade Heathcott
10. Brandon Laird

No real surprises on the list. Montero ranking #1 makes sense, considering he could very well be holding the starting catcher position out of Spring Training at the start of next season. As you can tell by the list, some prospects have made considerable improvements. Sanchez (#7 in ’10) and Brackman (#10 in ’10) have moved up the ranks. The thing that has to catch your eye is Dellin Betances ranking #3 on this list. It just shows how good of a year he’s had, considering he was left off the top 10 list all together in 2010.

With Zach McAllister and Arodys Vizcaino leaving the team, it opened up some new spots for other propsects. New additions to this year’s list include: Noesi, Nunez and Laird.   (more…)

On Thursday, Lance Berkman was placed on the disabled list with a sprained ankle. He was 7-for-39 with no homers and 4RBI’s as a Yankee. “We just felt that it hadn’t progressed quite as quickly as we wanted it to,” manager Joe Girardi said. “We just felt that it was probably in his and our best interest to DL him and that way he’s not rushing back. He still lacks some stability and has not had a chance to run yet.”

Frankie Piliere of Fanhouse gave full-length scouting reports of Dellin Betances and Manny Banuelos.

On Betances: The bottom line here is this: keep Dellin Betances on the mound and healthy and his talent is as good as anyone at the minor league level. Health is the only thing that can hold him back.

On Banuelos: Look around the big leagues and find the left-handed starting pitchers that average 93 mph or better with their fastball. It’s a very short list. Throw in the fact that Banuelos is a consistent strike-throwing machine with two above-average secondary pitches and you have a very rare commodity….If he can remain healthy and keep his shorter frame in check, he is a true front-of-the-rotation type pitcher.

Yankees prospect, Zach McAllister, was sent to the Indians as the player to be named later in the Kearns trade.

According to Bob Klapisch, the Yankees have refused to include Joba Chamberlain in any potential deal for Dan Haren. They are still talking though.

Jon Heyman has reported that the Yankees organization is willing to include Ivan Nova, Zach McAllister and 2 prospects for Haren. They don’t want to eat the money and give up Joba at the same time.

“Yankees would pay the $33 mil left on haren, but they have balked at taking chad qualls, chris snyder, too.”

What are your thoughts about these ongoing negotiations? Do you think they will get a deal done?

Here are a few things that are floating around the Yankees universe as we ready ourselves for pitchers and catchers this week.

…Spring Training! What did you think I was going to say, Christmas? Pfft, that day is just a mere speed bump in baseball fan’s lives known as ‘Off season’. Either way, the Yankees released their non-roster invitee list and it looks something like this:

OF Marcus Thames, LHP Wilkins Arias, LHP Jeremy Bleich, OF Colin Curtis, RHP Grant Duff, OF Reid Gorecki, C Kyle Higashioka, RHP Jason Hirsh, LHP Kei Igawa, RHP Zach McAllister, C Jesus Montero, C PJ Pilittere, LHP Royce Ring, C Mike Rivera, C Austin Romine, RHP Amaury Sanit, RHP Zack Segovia, OF Jon Weber, RHP Kevin Whelan and OF David Winfree.

Tell me, are you as excited to see Kei Igawa pitch to Marcus Thames in intersquad games? You’re not? Then you must not be a true Yankees fan then. I kid, regardless, 9 days until Spring Training.

Darryl Strawberry is going to appear on ‘Apprentice’. “No, the former Mets and Yankees slugger isn’t up for a front-office position, but something a bit more television-friendly. It was revealed Monday by NBC that Strawberry, 47, is one of the cast members in the next season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” entrepreneur Donald Trump’s reality show that begins airing in March after the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games.”

LoHud.com’s Chad Jennings wonders if the Yankees’ lineup would seem better if Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner swapped positions, since Granderson has the power of a corner outfielder and Gardner has the speed of a center fielder.

The agent for Chien-Ming Wang told 1050 ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand that he has heard from 15 teams, whom are interested in Wang.

Blomberg wants to do radio. He  joined Ed Randall on WFAN radio and fell in love with the microphone, opening another potential avenue for the 61-year-old who for years has had a hand in everything from motivational speaking, to scouting for the Yankees, to running sports camps for youths in New Jersey. “I want to do radio,” says Blomberg, who was taken by the Bombers with the first pick of the 1967 draft and spent seven of his eight major league seasons in pinstripes. “It’s a natural thing, I love to talk to people and talk baseball.”

Bruney loves his facial hair. “I can finally grow some facial hair after four years,” he said. “That’s great. That was one of the first things I thought about. When I was traded, I said, ‘Wow, finally, I can grow a beard.’”

David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution believes that if his price tag drops to well below $10MM, Johnny Damon could be a good fit for the Braves.

Strikeouts on the rise for Sanchez. “In his last four regular season appearances with Scranton, Sanchez had 22 strikeouts in 18.1 innings. During the Triple-A playoffs, he had 17 strikeouts in 10 innings. This winter in Venezuela, Sanchez has 47 strikeouts in 33 innings (his previous three winters combined he had just 22 strikeouts in 34.1 innings).”

Joe Pawlikowski of River Ave. Blues wants the Yankees to stay away from free agent outfielder Marlon Byrd. 

Randy Johnson announces retirement. “I would like to officially announce my retirement. I’ve taken this long because I definitely wanted to kind of relax from the season being over and make sure I had a clear head when I made this decision, and that I would be making it wholeheartedly, and that I would stick with it. Without a doubt, 100 percent, I will be retiring at this time.”

Bay: “I just kind of assumed Damon would be back”. “I didn’t really see them having a hole,” Bay said. “They moved some guys, and I just kind of assumed Damon was going to be back. I just never really gave it a lot of thought to be honest.”

The Misery Tenor. The Yankees have moved on and they have no plans for Ronan Tynan to sing during the 7th inning stretch at future home games.

A-Rod still has Madonna on his mind. “Actress Kate Hudson reportedly dumped sportsman Alex Rodriguez, her boyfriend of nine-months, because he is still obsessed with Madonna.” (more…)
