Buzz: Banuelos, Campos will pitch in '12 A recurring feature of the blog, Buzz will follow Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, as well as other top Yankee prospects, all season long.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that top prospect Manny Banuelos is on his throwing program, as he continues to recover from what the Yankees have described as a sore elbow. Jose Campos, the minor leaguer included in the Michael Pineda deal, hasn't started throwing again yet. He also has a sore elbow.
"They will both pitch this year," Cashman said.
When asked if there is any long-term concern over their elbows, Cashman said, "I hope not."
Banuelos, 21, last pitched in a game on May 18. He is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in six Triple-A starts this season. Campos, who will turn 20 this month, is 3-0 with a 4.01 ERA in five starts. Campos has been out since the end of April.
