Alberto Gonzalez: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B – breaks an 0 for too-many-to-count
Omir Santos: 1 for 4, 1 K
rest of lineup: combined 2 for 21, 5 K – E-Duncan and Bronson Sardinha took 0 for 4′s
Matt DeSalvo: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 10 K, 1 HB – that’s a good way to throw 97 pitches in under 5 innings

Double-A Trenton (2-1 loss to Akron)
Brett Gardner: 4 for 5 - picked off first
Aarom Baldiris: 2 for 4, 1 K
Gabe Lopez: 3 for 4, 1 2B
rest of lineup: combined 1 for 18, 3 K – hard to win when your 3 thru 6 hitters go 0 for 12
Ian Patrick Kennedy: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K – tough luck loss
Jason Jones: 3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K – squeezed out of the rotation

Anthony Claggett: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 WP – the rotation isn’t exactly agreeing with him
Guillermo Villalona-Bryan: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Eric Wordekemper: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 B, 1 K

Short Season Staten Island is currently in a rain delay, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be restarting anytime soon. You aren’t missing much, Zach McAllister got roughed up to the tune of 3 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, but he did have a nice little 4-1 GB/FB ratio. If they start playing and something worth reporting happens, I’ll let you know…tomorrow morning.

Rookie GCL Yanks (3-0 loss to GCL Tigers)
Abe Almonte: 0 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K
Prilys Cuello: 2 for 4, 1 CS - starting off with a bang
rest of lineup: combined 1 for 21, 8 K
Kelvin Perez: 3.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Wilkins DeLaRosa: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K – you may remember him as an outfielder…now he’s a lefty with 95 mph gas

Oregon State vs. UNC in the College World Series Championship Series for the second year in a row. UNC topped Rice 7-4 thanks to 6 strong from uber-swingman Adam Warren, and closer deluxe Andrew Carignan shoving it down the Owls’ throats for the final 2.1 innings. Cole St. Clair was just awesome for 3.2 innings, Bobby Bramhall…not so much, and it cost ‘em. Should be a doosy of a series.

    DeSalvo, jeez. 2 baserunners an inning isn’t helping his value any.

  2. ShawnT says:

    Desalvo aint got no value playing for us in my opinion, id trade him and clippard for some decent first baseman.

  3. Rick says:

    Tabata is gonna be a legit star soon watch. Him and Jesus Montero are gonna reek havoc on Baseball 5 years from now.

    Hey Mike,
    Just got done reading over at pending pinstripes ( you know, the plae where it took 2 people to replace you) and they have a list of promotions. May want to check it out.

  5. Eric Schultz says:

    Tsk, tsk Mike, you really dropped the ball on that one. Maybe you could use a second person.

  6. Rich says:

    I don’t think DeSalvo has any trade value.

  7. Mike A. says:

    Man, I’m taking alot of heat for the “took 2 guys to replace me” crack. I was just a joke ya know!

    You didn’t miss much with the conclusion of the SI Yanks game. McAllister took the loss, and the only bright spot was John Axford throwing 4 hittless innings of relief with a whole bunch of K’s.

    I haven’t heard anything about the promotions, other than the NYYFans stuff. Guess we’ll find out tonight when they play…
