Morning Bits: Mitchell, Garcia, Swisher, Ibanez, YES

Good morning all.  I’m escaping for a long weekend away after work so an early enjoy the weekend to you.  Let’s get right to the links….

* Small ESPN article showing love to my favorite pitching prospect D.J. Mitchell.  Anyone else on the Mitchell bandwagon with me?  I saw him pitch in Scranton last year and was completely amazed by how quickly he works.

* Garcia took a comeback of his hand yesterday X-rays are negative so that’s good.

* Swisher is in his best shape and expects results reports

* Slow start Ibanez is not worried just yet.

* The Yes Network is turning 10 Years old?  Not sure about you but my cable didn’t carry it when it first came out.

  1. Matt….I agree….Mitchell has looked great and I would probably keep him as the last guy in the bullpen. Give him the role Noesi had last year. He has good sink on his Fastball, throws his Curve and Change for strikes and, like Phelps, looks poised and in command on the mound.

    I think both Phelps and Mitchell have little to gain pitching in AAA. I’d start Mitchell in the Yankee pen and Phelps starting in AAA as the first guy up to keep him lengthened out.

    Mann B & Betances have great potential but both need a full yr in AAA IMO.

  2. I too agree.
    DJ Mitchell is good and at the same time still improving. He’s been overshadowed and commonly thought of as a future bullpen arm but both he and David Phelps are good enough right now to be mid/back-rotation SP’s.
