Buzz: Manny B. pitches well again

5/8/2012

A recurring feature of the blog, Buzz will follow Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, as well as other top Yankee prospects, all season long.

Manny Banuelos had another good start, his second since returning from the DL. In his five innings, the big number was the zero walks.He has now walked none in his 8 2/3 since recovering from his back issue.

Banuelos' lack of control has been what has dimmed his still bright star a tiny bit. He is still a potential No. 1 or 2 starter.

Banuelos finished the game against Columbus, having given up just one run and four hits in his five innings. He struck out three.

Banuelos lost, 1-0.

Meanwhile, Brett Gardner went 2-for-3 and could be back on Wednesday or Thursday.
