Burawa has torn oblique

Bad news from Newsday's Erik Boland, who reports that Dan Burawa, one of the Yankees' high-end relief prospects who was slated to start the year at Trenton, has a torn oblique muscle. Boland also reports that the recovery time for such an injury is two months, minimum. 

Given how cautious the Yankees are with their prospects, I'd look more toward June or the EL All-Star break. Terrible break for one of the organization's rising stars. Over the past year, scouts I'd spoken to had referred to   Burawa as a potential eighth-inning reliever or even a future closer. One went so far as to comp him to Seattle's Brandon League.
Here's a link to a feature I wrote about Burawa last spring.
