    He can’t be happy about another trip to Tampa…i just don’t know what’s happened to Mateo…i think he’s got great potential but he appears derailed for now…

      Hopefully they are just trying to build his confidence back up. Apparently loaded with talent and needs a little more maturity. And maybe while he's down there, he works on playing center field. He gets his shit together and comes back stronger than ever. One thing the Yankees are is patience, at least with the minor leagues. It seemed like Sanchez was down there forever.

    I don't understand either, did he not split time between Trenton and Scranton? Put him in Triple A or at least Double A. Nothing to prove or further development by performing T Single A for more than 3 years.
