Weekly Prospects Check In: Mike Ford

The New York Yankees have had to do a lot of roster reshuffling this season, especially in their minor league camps, due to injuries and movement both in the minors and at the Major League level. The latest major movements came when Starlin Castro came up lame on a double forcing him to the bench and Donovan Solano to come up from Triple-A. So who replaced Solano at Scranton? Technically Jonathan Diaz is playing second base but the man who came up and took his roster spot is the showcase post for today, Mr. Mike Ford.

Ford made his Triple-A debut in the Triple-A Championship Game this week playing DH for the RailRiders. What did he get for his efforts? A Triple-A Championship, the first one in the franchise’s history. Here is the stat line that forced the hand of the Yankees to call him up and here is what he did in his one game in a RailRiders uniform.

Congrats to him and congrats to the RailRiders as well.

Mike Ford went 0-3 with a walk in the Championship game.
