Weekly Prospects Check In: Jorge Mateo

Over the weekend as a part of the All-Star Game festivities in San Diego the Yankees were originally slated to send two of their top prospects to the XM Futures Game. The Futures Game, which features Team World vs. Team USA, is a huge honor given to each team’s top prospects and the game is meant to be a showcase of the future talent that is making their way into the game in the coming years. The representative for the New York Yankees is Gary Sanchez and no longer today’s check in, Jorge Mateo.

This is an honor for any prospect and I’m sure it’s an honor that Mr. Mateo did not taking lightly. Unfortunately though he has been suspended for two weeks for a violation of the team’s policy and he will no longer be allowed to go to the game. This has to be an even bigger disappointment for him than it is for us, the fans. More on this later.
