Mini-Moose is your FSL Pitcher of the Week:

Florida State League
Ian Kennedy, Tampa
2-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 13.2 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 20 SO
Kennedy, the Yankees’ first-round draft choice in 2006, was dominant in each of his two starts this week. The USC product struck out 11 over 6 2/3 scoreless innings against Dunedin on Tuesday and followed that up by whiffing nine over seven shutout frames in Jupiter on Sunday. Kennedy’s 1.24 ERA is the league’s best, and his five wins are tied for the most in the circuit.

Cool part is he hasn’t even been the Yanks best pitcher in the minors… 

Triple-A Scranton (3-1 win over Richmond)
Kevin Reese: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 SB
Andy Phillips: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Eric Duncan: 0 for 2, 2 BB, 1 SB - has reached base 7 times in last 3 games…
Shelley Duncan: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K
Alberto Gonzalez: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 3B
Eric Junge: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 7-4 GB/FB – in case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “Young”
Everyday Kozlowski: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K – he probably won’t be with the organization next year, but he’s done a heck of a job and it hasn’t gone unnoticed
Jim Brower: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Double-A Trenton (6-0 win over Portland)
Shawn Garrett: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 BB, 2 K
the rest of  baseball’s most boring lineup: 7 for 29, a pair of doubles, a couple of RBIs, a handful of walks and a bunch of K’s – yaaaaaaaaawn…
Brett Smith: 8 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 10 K, 1 WP, 2-11 GB/FB – took a no-no into the 8th…is there any question who the Yanks’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year is???

High-A Tampa (9-4 win over Jupiter) roughed up last year’s 19th overall pick
Reegie Corona: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 BB – building on last year’s breakout
Tim Battle: 2 for 6, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K
Jose Tabata: 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 HBP - after 6 SB in his first 16 games, he’s stolen 0 in his last 23 games
Juan Miranda: 0 for 2, 1 R, 2 BB, 1 HBP
Edwar Gonzalez: 2 for 5, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K
Colin Curtis: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 2 K – 5 for his last 8 after 3 for his previous 28
Marcos Vechionacci: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 SB, (throwing)
Frankie Cervelli: 1 for 5, 1 K
Kevin Russo: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 SB
Dan McCuthcen: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K – worst start of his young career
Anthony Claggett: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 4-0 GB/FB – very ‘eh’ this year…

Low-A Charleston (6-3 loss to Columbus)
Mitch Hilligoss: 2 for 4, 1 R, 2 2B, 2 K – 28 games and counting…ok NOW he’s halfway to Joe D.
A-Jax™ & Seth Fortenberry: both 0 for 3, 1 K, 1 HBP - Fortenberry got caught stealing…
Brian Baisley: 2 for 4, 1 R
Josue Calzado: 1 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K
Grant Duff: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Ferdin Tejeda: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 WP – man, he’s still around?
