Small nugget but worth checking out.  The Yankees released 2 minor leaguers.

According to Baseball America, the 2 guys are righty pitchers... Rafael Ordaz and Brandon Stenhouse.

Pinstriped Prospects writes of Stenhouse...

"Stenhouse, 20, was signed as an International Free Agent on January 18, 2014 and made his professional debut in 2015 with the Gulf Coast League Yankees.  He spent both the 2015 and 2016 seasons in the Gulf Coast League where he went a combined 4-2 with a 3.49 ERA striking out 44 in 38 2/3 innings of work. "

We wrote about Stenhouse back in 2014 with a piece called WITH BRANDON STENHOUSE, PASSION & HEART WINS

" I've written here so many times before on BYB... if you dream big, you can be big, but you can't just stop on one step... you need to push yourself and "climb the mountain".  I've often admired the guts of guys like Jorge Posada and Ty Hensley for exactly that. Anything can be accomplished, you just need to believe in yourself.  Something big happened to an Australian teen named Brandon Stenhouse.  He worked hard, believed in himself and had big dreams too. He wanted to one day pitch for the New York Yankees.  And then... something happened.  The Yankees answered the call... dreams do come true."

Now he's been released.  The road is long and sometimes hard, but if you don't try... hey, you never know.
