TTM Success: Yankees Relief Prospect

The TTM successes have been few and far between these days, so I was excited to see a SASE show up in my mailbox yesterday. It was postmarked from Charleston, SC, which I knew meant a Yankees prospect from the Riverdogs. After only nine days, 2010 fifth round draft pick and promising reliever Tommy Kahnle signed my 2011 Topps Pro Debut - my first success on a card from this set!

Kahnle is having a decent season after being lights out in Rookie ball last year. His 4 ERA is a little high, but he does have 57Ks in 45 innings. Hopefully he is promoted to Tampa this season and sees time in Double A next year. He's a bullpen arm to watch for sure.
