ProSwing athletic training center has announced two dates of guest instruction from Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long. The first day is only for ProSwing baseball players, but the second day is open to the public. Here are the details from ProSwing.

WHAT: Kevin Long, the New York Yankees hitting coach, is gearing up for another successful MLB season. Before he lands in Tampa for Spring Training, he’ll be making a couple pit stops at ProSwing of Port Chester. Long is scheduled hold two hitting clinics at ProSwing on Saturday, January 14th and Sunday, January 15th.

Promoting his new book, Cage Rat, Long has decided to practice what he preached. He will personally evaluate each athlete’s swing, and then take them aside to talk about their game and their mechanics in these two and a half hour clinics.

The Long Island Tigers Baseball Club and ProSwing of Port Chester have teamed up to make this wonderful event happen.

    “With all of Burnett’s issues, he will pitch 180 plus innings. The Yankees will not move him unless they can get a starter to replace those innings. Phelps, Warren etc. are not considered high level prospects in any ranking of which I am aware. They would be a huge risk.”

    Over the last two years, AJ has pitched to a 5.20 ERA (that’s an ERA+ of 84!) and a WHIP of 1.472. I’ll add Noesi, and speculate that if the Yanks don’t think Noesi/Phelps/Warren/Mitchell can pitch at least that well then the Yanks sure don’t think much of them.

    “No question concerning Garza’s durability, but I just expect more out of a 2 Slotter than what Garza showed us while facing Punch-Drunk NL lineups.”

    The Brewers, Reds, and Cards all had pretty good lineups last year and his 2011 numbers are very comparable to what he did in the AL east.

    WYH – I couldn’t agree with you more on this. I know there are concerns about any rookie pitcher, but, then again, there always concerns about every player’s future perfrormance. Personally, I’d be fine with Noesi, or Warren/Phelps, replacing AJ in the rotation.

    I would rather watch 180 5 era innings from Noesi than from AJ…..reason being is that it may mean 200 innings of 3.5 era from Hector the next year.

    I agree with the assessment that Garza is more a mid-rotation guy, and I Certainly disagree with you concerning last season being his Best. He’s a good pitcher at this juncture, but to me, last season he took a step back, and does Not warrant what Theo is attempting to get. I wouldn’t even do a Noesi and Nunez for the guy.

    Donny,

    Show me in the numbers where he took a step back? Best Era of his career…..most Ks in his career….least amount of homers allowed….etc….at the very least it was the same as all the others seasons.

    You wanna evaluate a player based on his “numbers”. I evaluate a player based on what I have actually seen him do. To me, there is a big difference in the Garza we saw with Tampa and the one we saw last season with the Cubs. Any way you wanna slice it, Garza in the AL is currently a 3 Slotter at best.
