Weekly Prospects Check In: Ben Heller

The New York Yankees added quite a few top end prospects before the August 1st trading deadline and many of them have been introduced to you and showcased here on the blog. You know the names; Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Dillon Tate, Gleyber Torres and others but one name that is not getting enough attention around here in my opinion is that of Ben Heller. I hope to change that a bit today.

Heller was a relief pitcher and a closer for the Cleveland Indians before being shipped off to the Yankees in the Andrew Miller trade and now Heller is passing the time down in Scranton with the RailRiders. With the Yankees seemingly lack of relief in their middle relief Heller could be one of the next arms to get the call u to the Bronx. The Yankees have two open 40 man roster spots and they need all the bullpen relief they can get… Heller may be next so learn the name.
