Weekly Prospects Check In: Justus Sheffield

Justus Sheffield was promoted from High-A Tampa with the Tampa Yankees to the Double-A Trenton Thunder just in time for their playoff push and the Thunder have to be absolutely loving the decision by the Yankees organization. Sheffield has been all he has been advertised to be and then some thus far this season for the Yankees after coming over from the Cleveland Indians in the deal that sent Andrew Miller to the American League Central.

His velocity is good, his command is better and his stuff is just purely awesome right now for a team that is contending for a Double-A Eastern League Championship. You cannot put a stat to or a number on the importance of what is happening right now for all the young guys in the Yankees system right now, not just Sheffield. They are learning how to win and learning how to deal with and cope with the pressure and expectations that come along with being a playoff and championship team.

In other words they are learning how to be Yankees.
