Yankees minor league injury updates: Banuelos, Williams, and Campos


A couple of injury updates from some of the Yankees top prospects.

Manny Banuelos (BBD No. 1) had Tommy John Surgery back in October and has finally begun throwing, per Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal.

• Mason Williams (BBD No. 3), recovering from shoulder surgery, told Anthony McCarron  of the NY Daily News that he’ll be ready to start the season.

• Jose Campos (BBD No. 7), missed all of last season with a sore elbow, has finished his rehab and is ready for Spring Training, according to George King of Baseball America.

An August or September return for Banuelos would be the earliest. He probably won’t see the Bronx because of that and will likely pitch in the AFL. Good to see Williams is ready, hopefully he doesn’t suffer any setbacks and continues to build power. I’d be thrilled to see at least 140 innings from Campos this year. Wouldn’t even care if he had a 4.00 ERA.
