Weekly AFL Check In: Ian Clarkin

The weekly check in posts are back here on the blog and I, for one, can’t put into words how excited I am about it. We’ve already checked back in with Tyler Austin, the man who needs the Arizona Fall League the most, and Gary Sanchez, the man who is destroying the fall league and their pitching, but today we look at possibly the most interesting story of the AFL. Ian Clarkin, Top 10 prospect inside the New York Yankees organization.

Clarkin missed the entire 2015 season with some mystery elbow injury, which if I were a betting man I would say is a Masahiro Tanaka type partially torn UCL but that’s pure speculation, and didn’t make his debut this year until his first start last week in the AFL. Clarkin is back and he seems healthy, which is great news for the Yankees and the state of their farm system, and will look to build up some innings and some of his value with the Surprise Saguaros this fall.
