Press Release: New York management have released a statement indicating that top prospect Ellie Roenicke will spend the season in AAA. Roenicke was considered by some to be a top ROY candidate this season. When asked to comment, Roenicke replied, "The Necromancer organization showed a lot of faith in me, taking an unproven high school kid in the first round. It's time for me to repay that faith. I trust the GM to do what's best for the team, and I'm only concerned with winning."
Reactions among the media reps covering the team varied. One said, "These guys aren't going to contend this year...let him develop for another season and he'll be an even better bet for ROY next year." Another disagreed, saying, "If he's ready to play in the majors he should be in the majors, extra arb years be damned!"
