Weekly Check In: Miguel Sulbaran

The New York Yankees are gearing up for a potential playoff run and what could be an exciting July 31st trading deadline this season. New York is sending scouts to watch various starting pitchers, relief pitchers and positional players in hopes of guiding the team to the playoffs for the first time since 2012. To acquire good players you have to give up good players and those good players may come from any affiliate the Yankees have, especially the stocked with talent Double-A Trenton Thunder and the Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

Players like Mason Williams, Ramon Flores and Bryan Mitchell have already been linked to players as well as Luis Severino and Aaron Judge but a guy you may not hear about until a trade actually happens is Miguel Sulbaran. Sulbaran was traded to New York in the Eduardo Nunez deal from the Minnesota Twins and may be on the chopping block once again this July. The 21 year old left handed pitcher has pitched well in Trenton and may be in Triple-A or even the major leagues on the right team as soon as September of this year.

Sulbaran will either provide much needed starting pitching depth very soon or he may bring the team the depth and players they need to make the playoffs. Either way it sounds like a win-win for the Yankees. Here’s the stat line:
