Most astute baseball fans can list several first-round draft picks that failed to live up to expectations. Their careers could have been derailed by drugs, alcohol or sex addiction.

By now, most of you have probably seen the video of younger Ariel Antigua and his extraordinary baseball talent. In case you haven't, I've attached it to the post. The five year-old Lyndhurst boy can hit 85 MPH fastballs from both side of the plate and field like someone three times his age. Normally I'm ...

Mitchell, Christian Garcia, Kevin Whelan, Wilkins Aria, Kei Igawa, Wilkin De La Rosa, Jeremy Bleich and catchers Daniel Gil and Kyle Higashioka. The majority of those cuts make sense in my head; the minor league camp needed ...

According to Mark Feinsand, Gaudin was extremely tired before, during and after yesterdays outing against the Tigers: Gaudin, who started against the Tigers, grinded his way through three innings, giving up three ...
Moving Up: Alfredo Aceves. The right-hander is making a strong case for a spot in the rotation after tossing six hitless innings this spring. If he continues to pitch this well, he could force the Yankees to send either Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain to the Electric City. Jon Weber. The journeyman outfielder is a long ...
The rumors have swirled during the winter, but according to two major league sources, former Padres GM Kevin Towers will officially join the Yankees as a special assistant to Brian Cashman.

According to Daniel Popko of NESN.com, the Yankees are the front-runners to sign Cuban-defector Adeinis Hechavarria. Popko writes that the Yankees are seeking to match the Red Sox addition of fellow Cuban Jose Iglesias.

According to Jack Curry and Sam Borden, the Yankees have traded reliever Edwar Ramirez to the Texas Rangers for cash considerations. Ramirez was designated for assignment when the club signed right-hander Chan Ho Park last week.
