Minor League Report. Waldichuk dominates at AA.

A concerning thing is that some Yankees’ prospects are off to very slow starts. In fact, there is an article (I think from NJ.com) on the internet about the regression of Jasson Dominguez, the Martian.

Ken Waldichuk isn’t one of them, however. Read on.
