Rookie GCL Yanks had the first game of their doubleheader suspended in the middle of the 5th due to rain. The Yanks were leading the GCL Braves 8-0 at the time, thanks to homers by Prilys Cuello, Brandon Laird and Andres Perez. Pete Walker and Kelvin Perez each threw 2 scoreless innings with 3 K apiece. The second game of the doubleheader was postponed, making it the 3rd straight game (and 4th out of their last 6), that’s been affected by the weather.

    i wish they would just give shelley a shot

  • Stuart

    they need 1 more position player…..

    it sunds like he is a terrible fielder1 Is that true?

  • C-Note

    promote Horne to AAA PLEASE!!!!!!!!

    & Robertson to Trenton in a couple of weeks, some guys you can promote aggressively, he’s one of them

  • steve

    the AAA rotation and bullpen is loaded, how can they promote horne … he deserves it but who gets demoted ?

  • The Scout

    Who to demote? The guy(s) with less of a future. Chase Wright has been mediocre at AAA. S. Jackson, now in bullpen, could go down, and wright gets shifted to the bullpen, which is his likely future home anyway.

  • C-Note

    Run Hernandez is taking up space @ AAA, and Wright hasn’t exactly been great at Scranton— I would say the AAA rotation is crowded not loaded— Horne is the guy at Trenton, because of his age and he’s not on a pitch/inning count this year is probably closest to the show—- BA had a piece on him a few weeks ago saying he’s a potential mid season call up becasue of how well he’s been throwing this year— WHY is he still in trenton, his ERA is less than 2.00 his last ten starts

    yea, just read that @ another site, thanks Mike

    Coming into the year it was great to think that the Yanks had three very high ceiling guys in Hughes, Chamberlain and Betances. Horne (fingers crossed) seems to have joined that group based on his arm and performance and hopefully the organization is viewing him that way. Hopefully he gets a shot in spring training next year.

    C-Note your description of the Scranton rotation as “crowded not loaded” is exactly on the mark. The depth in the organization is terrific. But if they are going to use the minors to compete with what the Angels and Detroit have done in terms of developing arms and getting them into the majors then depth is only going to go so far. They’ll need special arms and have to treat those guys as such. They’ve clearly done that with Hughes, Joba and Kennedy. They should start thinking of Horne in the same way and that means not letting the Matt DeSalvo’s of the world hold up his development.

    How Shelley hasnt been called up is beyond me. 66 RBIs in AAA isnt enough? How is Cairo a better option? Such a waste to let him languish when hes been raking.
