We haven't heard a ton from Jorge Mateo lately. But don't worry... the kid's doing fine and it's pretty exciting actually.

William Boor of writes of yesterday's contribution to his Trenton Thunder game:

"Jorge Mateo only had six innings to work with as Double-A Trenton's 13-4 win over New Hampshire was completed early due to rain.

However, the abbreviated game proved to be more than enough as the Yankees' No. 4 prospect (No. 37 overall) matched his career high, set in 2013, with four RBIs. Mateo was also 4-for-4, his third four-hit game of the season, and also stole his 30th base in the process."

It's clear this guy is the future for the MLB real soon. My concern is someone like Mateo may be part of a package if the Yankees decide to upgrade their pitching as we near the trade deadline.  It's something that has happened many times before.

We'll have to see about that, but for now, I'm really happy for this kid.
