The Yankees need to send a scout to see this kid.
Ryan Pennell of Rye Neck HS in Westchester struck out 21 yesterday in a seven-inning game. The 6-foot-3 lefty had two get 23 outs in the game because two of the strikeout victims reached when the ball got away from his catcher.
Pennell is 7-0 with a 0.29 ERA with 112 strikeouts in 49 innings. Josh Thomson had the story in the paper this morning.
