SI Yankees Notebook: Medchill to See Specialist

The current Staten Island Yankee single-season homerun record holder Neil Medchill is out for the remainder of the regular season.  The slugging left fielder is expected to see a hand specialist early next week to see if he will be able to play in the playoffs. 

Medchill has not played since August 29 against the Tri-City Valley Cats where he was 1 for 2 with a walk and 2 runs scored in the game.  With Justin Milo providing solid defense and a good eye at the plate it could mean that Neil will most likely be shut down for the remainder of 2009.

Another Sellout in the Books

The Baby Bombers played in front of their 26th sellout crowd at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, a new single-season sell out record.  With the sellout the Yankees attendance for the season is now at 198,517 for an average of 6,015 fans a game another new record for the team.

Expected Playoff Rotation

Adam Warren and Sean Black are expected to make the first two starts of the postseason for the Baby Bombers.  Warren and Black have been two of the most productive starters for the Yankees this season.
