BEN GAMEL IS GETTING FOLKS EXCITED
We mention alot of great young prospects that we are excited about here at BYB. Ty Hensley. Aaron Judge. Luis Severino. Jorge Mateo. Slade Heathcott. We rarely mention Ben Gamel... and that's my bad. I will assign a writer to cover Gamel a bit. The reason why I bring it up is because he's opening eyes in the minors and in Spring Training.

According to Hardball Talk:
"Gamel, 23, is on the Yankees’ 40-man roster after hitting .300/.358/.472 with 10 home runs and 64 RBI in 551 plate appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season."
Not only that... he made a catch that needs to be celebrated. Yesterday, on a ball hit to deep right center, Gamel laid out just before the warning track to make the catch. It appeared to be out of his reach... it was not.
Gotta love grinding it!
Keep an eye on this kid.
