Rookies Who could make a big impact on their teams.

Trout, Harper, Moore, Montero, Miller, Buenalos, Bauer, Teheran, and Mesoraco its names like these that get all sorts of baseball fans excited for the 2012 season Moore, Montero, Mesoraco, Teheran, and Trout made it to the big’s in 2011 while Miller Bauer and Buenalos still await the phone call. These players are expected to shake up the 2012 season. Trout will be joining a much improved Angles line up while Harper and Montero will most likely play key rolls in their teams line ups that still need some help. As for Matt Moore the number one overall prospect he will be joining in my opinion  the best pitching rotation in all baseball with the Tampa bay Rays. Miller may not be ready for 2012 season but the Cardinals patience should pay off he is 21 with a plus fast ball and devastating curve he should be a September call up and will join Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Jaime Garcia and Kyle Lohse in one of baseballs stronger pitching rotations. Bauer was the number 3 draft pick in 2011 and has shot up through the Diamondbacks system. Mesoraco and Buenalos are likely to play key roles in the years to as well all Buenalos needs to learn is more control of his fast ball and he will be ready for the Bronx in no time.

The Yankees are nearing a deal that would send top prospect Jesus Montero to the Seattle Mariners in return for pitcher Michael Pineda. Pineda was 3rd in rookie of the year voting last year after having an above average rookie season.Montero is the number 6 over all prospect and showed much potential in 18 games hitting 328 with 4 home runs and 12 RBI’s. Now that Montero is gone the Yankees have no full time DH.There are plenty of options in the free agent and trade markets the best of which is Prince Fielder,other options include Johnny Damon and Yoenis Cespedes.



The Yankees finished with a 97-65 record in 2011 and hope to improve in 2012.With ace pither C.C Sabathia returning and rising stars such as Ivan Nova and Jesus Montero they might just do that.With a rotation that will include Sabathia,Nova,Phil Hughes,Freddy Garcia and A.J Burnett  and also a lineup that will incude stars such as Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter,Alex Rodriguez,Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson, the Yankees hope this team will lead them  to their their 28th world series title in 2012.
