When the Yankees drafted the 6-11 Brackman out of North Carolina State three years ago with their first-round pick, they envisioned something of a righthanded version of Randy Johnson. They didn't envision him going 2-12 with a 5.91 ERA in the low minors, as Brackman did last season at Single-A Charleston. A former basketball player as well as a pitcher at N.C. State, Brackman had never experienced such failure as an athlete. "It was definitely embarrassing," he said Sunday. "After every game, the numbers would weigh on you a little bit. It was one of the worst years in either baseball or basketball that I've ever had."

Brackman hoping to turn a corner this year.
