  1. Between him, josh gordon, and michel, nearly all of my sleepers/deep round picks are paying off. Going to be a fun ride with Chubb
  2. That K on Mauer was a work of art - both the ump’s punchout and the elevation on that ball
  3. The weather stopped him and he was pulled. 2ip No walks 4ks. That is perhaps the best start he could’ve had. Both for confidence and to give the management some faith the bb’s are a thing of the past. If it is an inning limit, he can follow glasnow’s case and build progressively off each start
  4. Like Glasnow, if Kopech can keep the walks down and ks up, this guy can help you down the stretch to a championship.
  5. Kopech called up for his Tuesday start!
  6. Justus Sheffield will play for the Yankees some time this season, Brian Cashman told Mike Francesa in a Wednesday interview on WFAN. stash him while ya can
  7. 7ip 5h 0er 0bb 9k on last night’s start. Really knocking on the door. Eloy also homered that same game
  8. Sheffield has a 1.71 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 51:18 K:BB in 52.2 innings over his last 10 starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He has really turned things on of late, and currently has a streak of six straight starts where he has allowed one run or less. Sheffield still walks a few too many batters, but opposing hitters are hitting just .191 against him this year and he has given up three home runs in 102 innings, which has allowed him to prevent runs at an excellent clip. Had his schedule lined up, Sheffield may have received a callup over Chance Adams for the spot start Aug. 4, but things did not align on that occasion. Lance Lynn has pitched well lately, so there isn't an immediate opening in the big-league rotation. It's possible Sheffield could join the big club in September to work as a multi-inning reliever, but that would require adding him to the 40-man roster. - CBS sports 8/9/18
  9. With Giolito continuing to implode (to the tune of 7er last night), it would be nice of the white Sox to swap him with Kopech in the minors...we’ll see
  10. “...Similarly, Michael Kopech seems to have reached the point where the case for keeping him in the minors is not very easy to make. "It's been an interesting season," Getz said. "It hasn't been completely smooth (for Kopech), but that's a good thing. He's in a good spot right now. "He's commanding his fastball the best he has. He's differentiating his breaking pitches. He's getting more consistent with those. He's getting more confident with his changeup. "Michael is a very confident player and we feel that he's going to be an impactful-type starter in the major leagues, and there's a chance that it happens fairly soon." Fairly soon is a relative phrase that in baseball terms could mean 10 days from now or it could mean 10 days into the 2019 season, which is precisely what it should be for Jimenez and Kopech. Sorry, White Sox fans, but GM Rick Hahn would not be properly looking out for you or the organization long term if he allowed for some short-term pleasure, promoting players that would give you something to enjoy in August and September of a season in which the Sox have no chance to compete. Yes, it would be fun. And, yes, it would sell some tickets. But it would be wrong, and as steward of the franchise he must think beyond today. To give away a year of team control would be irresponsible, just as it would have been for Theo Epstein, even though there was a pretty soft case for keeping Bryant at Iowa that first week of the season. But Bryant arrived in the fourth year of a rebuild. This is only the second year for the Sox, and if the Sox are able to craft a roster with a chance to win the World Series every season by the fifth year -- as did the Cubs -- that would be 2021. And by keeping Jimenez and Kopech down for the first week or two of 2019, the free-agent clock wouldn't start on them until 2020 and they are guaranteed to be here through at least 2025. It may not feel like it right now, but it will feel a whole lot better if these guys become superstars and you have them for that seventh year. Instead of only six.” source: 8/7/18
  11. 7ip 4h 2runs 2bb 8k last night he might get called up soon at this rate
  12. Wont be *. If we went from de Grom, he would’ve def been dealt
  13. Justus Sheffield has been named the #1 prospect of the NYY. The deal with Happ is good - it means we most likely be trading Sheffield
  14. Posted 15 hours ago by a local NY paper: “If the Yankees fail to trade for a starter before the trade deadline, Aaron Boone said, the Yankees will give serious consideration to promoting pitching prospect Justus Sheffield in the second half of the season. “I would say Shef is very much [in the mix],” Boone said when asked if Sheffield could contribute immediately, the way Luis Severino did when he was called up in 2015. Sheffield has “had another really good year. He’s putting himself in position probably in the short term to be in consideration for a spot, whether it be a rotation need, whether it be a bullpen need. He certainly is knocking on that door and getting a lot closer, absolutely.” The Yankees have called up a number of pitchers to round out a rotation that falls off a small cliff after the first three spots in the order. Domingo Acevedo was called up Saturday but didn’t pitch before he was optioned back to Double-A Trenton in return for Giovanny Gallagos, who was officially called up Sunday. Eventually, Luis Cessa is expected to take over that spot in the rotation. Boone has said previously that they’re still hoping to “fine tune” Sheffield, who has a 2.44 ERA in 11 starts with Triple-A Scranton this season.”
  15. He is the Yankees best pitching prospect. Trading him would be a travesty for the Yankees , synonymous trading Sevy in 2015
