The Arizona Fall League has a Rising Stars Showcase game that is less like an All Star game and more like what is sounds like, a showcase for the bigger named prospects. The Yankees will be well represented with David Adams and Mark Montgomery attending the game for the Scottsdale Scorpions. Congratulations to them both!! In other AFL news Dellin Betances has not pitched in the league in over a week due to a groin injury. This injury does not seem serious and has nothing to do with the shoulder injury that ended his season prematurely.
The Yankees wasted no time in trying to lock up some of their minor league systems yesterday as they announced that the resigned LHP Juan Cedeno, LHP Francisco Rondon, OF Abe Almonte, and OF Cody Johnson. The Yankees also announced that they released OF Bill Hart. These are nothing but depth moves but you have to consider that Juan Cedeno and Abe Almonte could be Spring Training invitees in 2013 so the re signs make sense.
