Yankees struggling minor leaguers are not helping

So far this season Freddy Garcia looks too old to get the job done anymore and Phil Hughes looks like he may never be able to do the job. It had Yankees fans waiting for Andy Pettitte and Michael Pineda's return, but with the injury to Pineda the Yankees will have to turn somewhere else ...

Warning! Do not trade minor league pitching depth

The Yankees have a plethora of pitching options at the MLB level and a superfluous amount of "arms in waiting" in Triple-A ready to pitch in the major leagues at the drop of a hat. Fans see this with the impending vacancy in right field, and feel the Yankees should deal from a position of ...
