Let's be frank. There have been an alarming number of injuries among the pitchers in the Yankees system this year. Look at the list right now:
Nik Turley -- not on the DL yet, but he had blister issues yesterday and seems headed there
Additionally, Manny Banuelos and Matt Tracy also spent time on the shelf. And that's only the pitchers. Walter Ibarra, Gustavo Molina, Zoilo Almonte, Dan Brewer, Jose Pirela, David Adams, Austin Romine, Slade Heathcott and Anderson Feliz have also missed time this year.
I'm not sure there's any more to this than just a string of seriously bad luck, but it certainly looks bad. What say you, readers?
