TTM Success: First from the Arizona Fall League

I only sent out two requests to Arizona Fall League participants this season: Gerrit Cole and Chase Whitley. Cole was chosen #1 overall by the Pirates this past June, so I figured he was worth a shot. The second player was someone I wanted to send to all season, I just never prioritized it for whatever reason. Well, after just 10 days, I received this from Yankees prospect Chase Whitley.

Whitley is a reliever in the Yanks' farm system. He was selected by them in 2010 (15th Round) out of Troy University and reached AA this season. He ended the year with a 2.47 ERA and 77Ks in 91 innings. He’s definitely someone who could factor into the Yankees bullpen plans in a year or two. Unfortunately the signature didn’t stick to the card very well, but still a nice success.

  1. That's nice that you got it back. I sent about a half-dozen letters to Arizona Fall League players, but I didn't get them out until the start of this week.
