Joe (RI) Manny Buenlos has been lights out for the Yankees so far, how long before he forces his way to the bigs?According to everything Cashman and the Yankees are saying, it's not going to happen. And if the Yankees don't want to potentially waste guys like Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon--whoever wins that 5th starter spot--I wouldn't hold it against them. I also wouldn't hold it against them if they continue to take it slow with Man-Ban. After all, the kid is turning just 20-years-old this weekend and hasn't pitched above Double-A.

Midyear? I feel like this is Heyward/Atlanta all over again, where you might let the best interests of the club in the current season trump long-term considerations - and it's not like Banuelos has a ton of things to work on in the minors. If they gave him a rotation spot now I wouldn't argue.
But what if you were running things, would you give the kid a shot?
