Franklin will be back, Montero won't

I wrote this story for The Trentonian a couple of days ago, but if you missed it: Tony Franklin and the rest of his staff -- plus a new strength and conditioning coach will be back in Trenton for 2010.

That seems to mean two things:

1. The Yankees like the way Franklin and his staff develop players, especially pitchers.

2. Franklin probably couldn't find a different, higher-profile job elsewhere.


Additionally, LoHud's Chad Jennings spoke with the Yankees' Vice President of Baseball Operations, Mark Newman, who said uber-prospect Jesus Montero will start the year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Not terribly stunning news, but it's a shame that Thunder fans got to see such a short stint of Montero.

They will, however, get to see Austin Romine behind the dish next season. That ain't too shabby, either.
