Weekly Check In: Jorge Mateo

The New York Yankees top prospect is not stealing bases like a man possessed thus far in 2016 but that doesn’t mean he’s necessarily having a bad season. Mateo has now played in over 40 games for the Tampa Yankees between his late season call up in 2015 and his start to the season in 2016 leaving many to wonder how long he will be in the Yankees High-A affiliate.

I know no more than you but I can use the past as an indicator, and these stats, to guess that Mateo will likely be in Trenton by or around the June time frame. That gives Mateo another month to fine tune his game and beat up on A-Ball pitching before taking what many believe to be the biggest step in a prospects path to the Major Leagues.

Mateo, we’re rooting for you because we want to see you in some capacity in 2017. Keep up the good work.
