Yankees Mailbag: Playoff roster ideas and assessing the farm

Good afternoon everyone, it’s time for another edition of the mailbag. Remember to send in your questions for our weekly call by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com.

Jon H. asks: The Yankees have dealt a lot of minor league pitching talent. What do they have left on the farm that might develop into major league talent, and when?

Of immediate note is Clarke Schmidt, who has been around the majors already but is stretching out at Triple-A and is showing definite promise. A starter’s role is definitely still within his grasp, and he could be in the rotation in a moment’s notice.
