Edwar Ramirez: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 WP – 48 K in 26.1 IP…get this guy in pinstripes…like fuckin’ yesterday!
Charlie Manning: 2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 WP – 1 H & 8 K in last 5 IP

Double-A Trenton (11-3 win over New Hampshire)
Justin Christian: 2 for 6, 1 2B, 1 K
Carlos Mendoza: 3 for 5, 1 R, 2 RBI
Shawn Garrett: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
PJ Pilittere: 3 for 5, 3 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 RBI – breaks out of 4 for 30 slump…
Noah Hall: 3 for 4, 1 R, 2 2B, 3 RBI
Gabe Lopez: 4 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 HB, 1 SB – BA went from .250 to .271…
Jeff Marquez: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 9-7 GB/FB – just puts together good start after good start, but he never really “wowed” me…

High-A Tampa (8-3 win over Lakeland)
Kevin Russo: 1 for 5, 2 R, 1 RBI, 2 K
Colin Curtis: 2 for 5, 2 R, 1 2B – got himself a nice little 8 game hit streak going…

Mini-Moose Kennedy: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K – I know the question is coming, so I’ll answer it now: I’m guessing he’ll be promoted to Trenton at the end of June, when they have some warm bodies (via the draft) to fill out the rosters in the lower minors…

Mitch Hilligoss: 4 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB – led the game off with a bomb, and surprisingly that’s only his 13th XBH during his 37 game hit streak, which oh by the way ties Bobby Trevino and Joey Cora for the longest hit streak in all of minor league baseball since 1961, when Roger Clemens was nothing more than a sparkle in his father’s eye (Rocket was born in ’62)…
Seth Fortenberry: 1 for 5, 1 R, 2 K
Austin Jackson: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – picked off first
Chris Malec: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 HBP
Eduardo Nunez & Josue Calzado: both 1 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K
Andres Perez: 1 for 2, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 BB
Grant Duff: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 8-2 GB/FB – now THAT is the definition of a dominating start
Paul Patterson: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

    man kennedy and chamberlain continue to rake … awesome ….

    poor chase wright … those 4 HR’s might have destroyed him … second coming of henn …. who knows if he can pull it off in the pen tho, IMO hes not making it back the the major leagues as a starter

  • Stuart

    tell me about Ramirez? can pitch for the Yanks???

    I heard he is really thin…

  • JP

    I heard he has change-up that looks like a cartoon pitch but has trouble locating his fastball. If it’s as good as they say I bet he could get ML hitters out

    Edwar Pitched in the Dominican winter league and put up very good numbers (I don’t have them here). While I don’t normally put too much stock in winter leagues the Dominican league is a whole other story. Many major league players make their way home in order to play. Miguel Tejada, Melky, Cano, David Ortiz just to name a few.

    He actually caught the eye of Baseball America over the winter if I remember correctly. They said a few words about how well he looked down there.

    Still wanna see Shelley in pinstripes

  • Zack

    Yeah, I was pissed about the Wright call up when it happened for just this reason. I don’t really believe that thats the whole story obviously, but clearly Wright isn’t really right, and you can trace the direct line to his stint in the majors way before he was ready…
