The Yankees promoted ‘07 first-round pick Andrew Brackman to Double-A Trenton today. This is huge news for Yankees fans, even though it was expected, because of his resurgence.
Brackman was downright awful in 2009 with the Charleston Riverdogs, going 2-12 with a 5.91 ERA while battling injuries. This year, the 6-foot-10 tower from North Carolina State strung together seven starts with a 2.05 ERA to earn himself the promotion.
But perhaps more importantly, he’s showed huge improvement in command with his SO/BB ratio.

There you have it. Brackman will enter the Hall of Fame in 2039.
