Weekly Prospects Check In: Jorge Mateo

You know I would really like to be a fly on the wall in some of the rooms the Yankees and their top executives make decisions in. Jorge Mateo screwed up and he was suspended for two weeks for it while missing out on the XM Futures Game this season. Mateo paid his dues yet it seems like the Yankees want to really send the message home that standing up, speaking out or whatever it was that mateo did to warrant the suspension will not be tolerated.

Mateo has done enough, in my opinion anyway, to warrant a promotion to Double-A Trenton Thunder yet the Yankees haven’t given him that. Fine. Now the team is sending Gleyber Torres to the Arizona Fall League to represent the Yankees and the Scottsdale Scorpions while Mateo’s season will be over here in a few weeks altogether. You have to wonder if this has anything to do with the Yankees still trying to send that message from the suspension, whether there is something we don’t know about (i.e an injury that he is nursing) or what is really going on that led to Mateo not being there.

Tyler Wade is going as an outfielder, although I’m sure he’ll play some middle infield as well, yet Mateo is going home for the winter. I don’t get it ladies and gentleman, I just don’t.
