Yankees Prospect Returns from Concussion Injury

Some rights reserved by flickr user paul.hadsallYankees prospect Austin Romine has been out with a concussion for the past couple of weeks, but is now symptom-free and has resumed baseball activities, according to the Star-Ledger. He is expected back in five to seven days.

Romine, who is not discussed as often lately, is still one of the Yankees top prospects. The problem is he is stuck behind another catching prospect, Jesus Montero, and has had to repeat Double-A. In 44 games this season he is hitting .298 with a .784 OPS, an increase over his .724 OPS from last season.

His return from injury is good for the obvious reasons, but it is also good because it he could potentially force them to promote Montero faster.
