BBB Debates: Aaron Judge in the Leadoff spot

With Opening Day just six days away at this point, the Yankees 25-man roster is coming clearer into focus.  What may not be clear, just yet, is the batting order that Aaron Boone will roll out next Thursday when the Yankees take the field against J.A. Happ and the rival Toronto Blue Jays. Today, Boone may have peeled back the curtain a bit into what exactly he might be planning.

In a few minutes, the Yankees will take the field against the Boston Red Sox in one of their final games of the 2018 Spring Training season (TV: YES, ESPN).  You may have noticed already, but Boone is batting 2017 American League MVP Runner-Up and 2017 American League Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge in the leadoff spot today versus Boston left-hander Brian Johnson.

BBB Top Prospect Countdown #27: Cale Coshow

Cale Coshow, a 13th round pick in the 2013 draft, comes in at #27 on our prospect list. The 23 year old was born in Edmond, Oklahoma and attended Oklahoma Christian University which is located in his hometown of Edmond. Coshow was one of two players from Oklahoma Christian University to be drafted in 2013 as teammate Chris Burgess was drafted in the 26th round by the Phillies.
After being drafted by the Yankees in 2013, Coshow made his professional debut that summer with Low-A Staten Island where he pitched in 15 games, four starts, and a 3.76 ERA while going 0-2. In 2015 Coshow, across three levels, had a 9-5 record with a 2.45 ERA 33 games and 15 starts. Coshow finished the season in Double-A where he pitched to a 3.51 ERA in six starts.

While Coshow has been an occasional starter in the minors, I expect him to contribute in the big leagues as a reliever. Throughout the minor leagues, Coshow has been a better pitcher as a reliever and that is most likely where he will have the most success moving forward. Coshow will most likely start the 2016 season in either Double-A or Triple-A and don’t be surprise if he ends up punching a ticket to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre-Bronx Shuttle.
