That’s what Cashman and Girardi said today before and after Banuelos started against the Red Sox.
“He has zero chance of breaking camp with the team.”
“He’s going to Trenton.”
“He needs more seasoning.”
Blah blah blah.
The kid was thrown to the wolves when Meat Tray came down with an injury, and he emerged unscathed except for those walks. He showed a lot of poise, not to mention versatility. Sure, he’s on a pitch count. Of course, he’s young and untested. And yes, the Yankees should protect his golden arm. But to say over and over again that he absolutely, positively, supercalifragilisticexpialidociously won’t make an appearance in the Bronx is rubbish.
I predict we’ll be seeing you sooner rather than later, Manny.
