Weekly Check In: Jose Pirela

As you all probably know by now we like to leave the Thursday Weekly Check In post wide open rather than tying ourselves down to one particular player. We may check in on new prospects who are emerging in the system, prospects you may never heard of before or prospects that are knocking on the door to Yankee Stadium with ferocity. Today we look at Pirela who is knocking on the Yankees door and on the borderline of beating it down right now, he’s hitting that well and he’s that hot ever since his demotion back to Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

What has been keeping the drum banging down for both Pirela and tomorrow’s check in, Robert Refsnyder, was the fact that both Stephen Drew and Brendan Ryan came out of the gates after the July 31st trading deadline firing on all cylinders. They were both hitting the ball, defending well and helping the team have a potent bottom of the batting order. That was then, this is now. The time is drawing ever closer to make the move for either Refsnyder or Pirela with Pirela likely ahead of the RailRiders second baseman on the depth chart.

Will Pirela make it back to the Bronx before September? If he keeps hitting like this the Yankees may not be able to ignore him for much longer…
