He's probably right to be upset wallowing in A fit too long.  But if he's a bad seed those usually don't grow into mighty oaks.  To wit: Jinah.

Yankees’ top prospect mouthed off to execs and got suspended





CHICAGO — According to a source with knowledge of the situation top Yankees prospect Jorge Mateo expressed his displeasure about not getting promoted from Single-A Tampa to Double-A Trenton but there were indications that might not have been the reason the infielder was hit with a two-week suspension that was announced Wednesday night.


Because he will be suspended, Mateo will not participate in the Futures Game this Sunday in San Diego. News of the suspension was delivered through the Yankees public relations department and general manager Brian Cashman wasn’t available to comment on the situation.


Mateo, 21, is considered by many in and out of the organization as a future big leaguer thanks to a live bat and blinding speed. The 6-foot, 190-pound right-handed hitter impressed the big league coaching staff in spring training. Early this season, the Yankees started to play him at second base in addition to shortstop.


In 78 games this season Mateo is batting .266 with a .323 on-base percentage and has 26 stolen bases in 38 attempts. After he batted .337 in April, there was talk of moving Mateo to Trenton, but that stalled when he hit .270 in May and .194 in June.


Last year at Single-A Charleston and Tampa, Mateo hit .321 in 21 games for Tampa and combined to steal 82 bases in 99 attempts.

He's a kid. I cut him a little slack before I think about dumping him. We could have dumped Sanchez a couple of years ago if everyone remembers

Yeah, I agree with that. But of course they won't.
