At 8:15 this evening, I received an email from an individual claiming to be Andrew Brackman’s uncle. He stated that Andrew was being called up. I could not confirm the relationship between the two and did not run the story. Cincinnati.com just confirmed that Andrew is headed to the majors:
Former Moeller standout Andrew Brackman was called up by the Yankees today. He reports to New York on Tuesday.
Brackman was selected by the Yankees in the first round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft after playing baseball at N.C. State.
He’s come a long way considering Brackman underwent reconstructive elbow surgery on Aug. 24, 2007.
Brackman was 10-11 with a 3.90 ERA this season at Tampa (A+ ball) and Trenton (AA ball), but he has continued to progress during the season.
According to the Trentonian, over his last six regular-season starts, Brackman appears to be on the verge of putting it all together. He allowed just three earned runs over his final six starts, and spun a brilliant five innings in relief of Andy Pettitte in the first game of the Eastern League Championship Series.
It has been a remarkable turnaround for Brackman, who looked lost last season after Tommy John surgery. He is unlikely to see much action, but this certainly suggests that he has a chance of making the Yankees at some point in 2011. The Yankee minor league pitching renaissance is starting to bear dividends.
Update: Mark Feinsand just said on Twitter that the Yankees have denied the report, for now. We shall see.
