Can someone please tell me why this man is still in the Yankees organization? He’s 22 and has been in A-ball for the last 5 seasons. As of yesterday, he’s had 1,927 minor league At Bats and has whiffed in 634 of them – fashioning an OPS of .661 in the process.
Yes, reports say he’s a fine defensive outfielder. But, he cannot hit – at all.
Sure, he was a 3rd round pick (in 2003). And, O.K., some say he’s a hard worker with great tools. Also, I know that he’s a survivor of B-cell lymphoma (a form of bone cancer) which he had in his left ribcage (back in 2003).
But, again, he’s 22-years old and been stuck in A-ball for 5 years because he cannot hit. It’s time to cut the cord, no?
