Video: Manny Banuelos throws live batting practice

ManBan is on his way back!

After missing a year while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Manny Banuelos has finally made it back to the mound. The finally healthy former top pitching prospect will try to regain some of his stock by proving he is the same pitcher that made him so highly rated before his injury. Luckily for Banuelos, he was so far ahead of similar prospects his age that missing a season wasn't too detrimental to his prospect status.

Chad Jennings of LoHud took some video of Banuelos throwing live batting practice to Dean Anna, Scott Sizemore, and Russ Canzler, Joe Girardi was pleased with how the ball was coming out of Banuelos' hand in his first real taste of live action this spring. There isn't a lot to see here, but it's nice to see actual evidence that another (hopeful) piece of the Yankees' future rotation is working their way back. Banuelos will likely compete for a starting spot in the rotation next spring.
