Weekly AFL Check In: Tyler Webb

Tyler Webb finished the 2015 regular season in Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders and will be our final regular check in for this season’s Arizona Fall League. While Webb didn’t come to the Surprise Saguaros with the same hype as say a Gary Sanchez, Ian Clarkin or Domingo Acevedo he, along with Tyler Austin, may have had the most to prove this fall in Arizona. You have to think that Webb is fighting for one of those precious bullpen spots out of Spring Training this season with the Yankees and you would also have to think he’s pretty slow on the depth chart right now.

That is not intended to be a knock on Webb, he’s still young and could use another two or three months with the RailRiders to fine tune his mechanics and such, as much as it is a testament to how deep the Yankees farm system is really getting. Vying for a bullpen slot along with Webb will be Jacob Lindgren, James Pazos, Branden Pinder, Caleb Cotham, Bryan Mitchell, Nick Rumbelow, Nick Goody and a slew of others leaving Webb on the outside looking in. Webb could have helped his own cause this fall with a better showing but that didn’t happen unfortunately.

Maybe next time Tyler!
