Becoming a Yankee prospect pitcher right of passage of late. According to Mike Ashmore, the beat writer for the AA Trenton Thunder, 20 year old Dellin Betances had TJ surgery several days ago. Many in the system felt it was inevitable with the recurrent elbow problems the local NYC product has had since being drafted, but some were hopeful he'd be able to avoid that measure. No such luck, and now the next time we can hope to see the 6'9 right hander is late 2010.
