Yankees Minor League Report 6/191/5: Latest from Ivan Nova; Brady Lail Continues to Cruise Along; Staten Island’s Season Gets Underway

My usual disclaimer:  I will report on Staten Island.  I will probably report on Pulaski, their new Appalachian League team that is essentially the same level as Staten Island.  I will not regularly report on the two GCL squads unless something significant happens.  Bottom line for me has always been that what happens in the [&hellip
