  1. Has anyone heard anything about Yates' stuff yet? I know he's old, but he absolutely killed it last year, and he seems to be doing pretty well this year too. Curious whether it's just a case of a polished pitcher who's tearing up the lower levels, or if he actually has decent enough stuff to be deemed a prospect.

  2. Yates was great as a reliever and through his first couple of starts, since then he has not pitched that well which can be said for the rest of the Hot Rod starters.
