Zach McAllister, man of many K & GB

By

Remember to Vote for Joba! The poll comes down whenever I wake up tomorrow.

Triple-A Scranton was rained out; they’ll make it up as part of an August 9th doubleheader. I was really looking forward to the scheduled Jon Lester-Chase Wright pitching matchup, but of course the weather interfered. Story of my life.

Double-A Trenton is currently in a rain delay. The Thunder were leading the…uhhh…team from Altoona 5-4 in the middle of the 8th when the rains came. I’m not going to wait around for the game to finish, so here’s what the boys did up to that point:
Brett Gardner: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 SB – BA went from .213 to .310 since he returned from his broken hand injury just under a month ago
Alberto Gonzalez: 0 for 4, 1 R, 2 E (throwing, fielding)
Cody Ehlers: 1 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K
Juan Miranda: 3 for 4, 1 2B, 2 RBI- 10 for his last 21 with 5 XBH… now if they only let him play first
Matt Carson & Colin Curtis: both 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K – Curtis swiped a bag
Jeff Marquez: 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 10-5 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) - file this under “completely uninteresting Jeff Marquez starts,” just like the rest of ‘em

High-A Tampa
Game 1
(5-2 win over Sarasota) this was the continuation of yesterday’s game, which was suspended due to rain
Austin Jackson: 1 for 2, 2 R, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP - he’s a got a great Roll Call name
Jose Tabata: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K – he’s got a great Bob Sheppard name
Edwar Gonzalez: 2 for 4, 2 R, 2 2B, 3 RBI – 2 doubles, a triple, a homer and 9 RBIs in his last 2 games
Marcos Vechionacci: 3 for 4, 1 R, 1 K – 11 hits in his last 7 games
George Kontos: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K – outing cut short by the rain
Mike Martinez: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 7-3 GB/FB
Eric Wordekemper: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – 12 of his 21 saves have come with a 1-run lead
Game 2 (3-1 loss to Sarasota in 7 innings)
Austin Jackson: 2 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K – he’s been in Tampa for 2 weeks, and he’s hitting .420-.482-.620-1.102
Jose Tabata: 1 for 3, 1 K – 14 hits in his last 9 games
rest of lineup: combined 0 for 16, 1 BB, 3 K, 2 E, 1 CS
Dan McCutchen: 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2-9 GB/FB – 2 ER in his last 25 IP coming into this game
Zach Kroenke: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – back in Tampa after a 9.42 ERA & 2.30 WHIP with Trenton

Low-A Charleston (8-7 loss to Columbus)
Eduardo Nunez: 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 BB – someone must have kidnapped the guy that hit .313 with Staten Island in 2005, cause this ain’t him
Seth Fortenberry: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K – first XBH in 9 games
Joe Muich: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 RBI
Josue Calzado: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – 6 for his last 12 with 2 HR and 5 RBI
Tim O’Brien: 0 for 4, 3 K
Chase Odenreider: 2 for 4, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Wilmer Pino: 3 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 E (missed catch) - 2 for his last 15 coming into the game
Eric Hacker: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Jesse Hoover: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 1 E (pickoff) – first ER allowed since June 13th, his first outing of the year

Short Season Staten Island (5-2 loss to Hudson Valley)
Justin Snyder: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 1 BB – dude’s got a 4-16 K/BB ratio!
Luis Nunez: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB – hitting .273 with SI after going .235 with Charleston
Damon Sublett: 1 for 3, 1 2B
Jose Gil: 0 for 4, 1 PB - hitting .216 on the year, plus he’s got like, 20 passed balls
David Williams: 0 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K – 0 for his last 15
Isaiah Howes: 1 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
Taylor Holiday: 0 for 1, 2 BB, 1 HBP - doubled his walk total on the year with this game
Chris Raber: 0 for 3, 3 K – 9 K in his last 7 games
Zach McAllister: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 8-1 GB/FB – 14-3 K/BB ratio & 22-5 GB/FB ratio in his last 14.1 IP
John Axford: 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 4-0 GB/FB

Rookie GCL Yanks were washed out; dunno when they’ll make it up.

Milb.com recently added box scores and players stats for the Domican Summer League to their already ridiculously informative site. I’m not going to update those games in Dotf (waaaaay too much work), but you can find the DSL Yanks1 team page here, and the DSL Yanks2 team page here. Yes, the Yanks have 2 teams in the DSL, but most of the prospects worth mentioning (Carlos Urena, Jose Pirela & Jahdiel Santamaria most notably) are with the DSL1 squad.

  1. Yankee Fan in Chicago says:

    Given his age, experience in Cuba, and the way he’s played this year, is it overly optimistic to think that Miranda could help in the Bronx next season, perhaps as the lefty helf of a first base platoon?

  2. ShawnT says:

    any news on Angelini

  3. Ben says:

    I hope Bob Sheppard’s still alive and kickin’ when Tabata makes it to the Bronx.

  4. John says:

    It’s the Altoona Curve. For the sake of one of my ex-es, you’ve got to respect central PA. They ain’t got much, but they live there anyways.

  5. George says:

    Yes, any new news on Angellini, and the other 2007 draft picks? Also what is the playing statues of Montero? Great old article on Joba and his father @ http://www.yanksblog.com/

  6. Tommy says:

    Thank you for continuing the Justin Snyder K-BB ratio watch. He won’t be in SI long by the looks of it.

    Great to see even more strong pitching efforts from guys like McCutcheon, Kontos and McCallister. Any idea what Tim Norton’s status is? I was pretty high on him based on his first year and the 5 starts this season.

    I have no idea what’s going on with Austin Jackson, but I’m not complaining. I keep telling myself it’s a small sample size, that’s he’s just hot right now, because there’s really no reason to have expected him to perform like this in Tampa based on his Charleston (and prior) numbers. But then the other half of me thinks he’s just putting all of his talent together.

  7. Mike says:

    Just wanted to point out that Marquez’s start is almost infinitely more interesting than McCutchen’s, considering he had a 2.0 GB/FB rate (as opposed to 2/9) and the same K/BB rate, despite being at a higher level and nearly 2 whole years younger.

  8. Joseph P. says:

    Wooo! We released Run-Elvis!

  9. [...] River Ave. Blues: Down on the Farm – Zach McAllister, man of many K & GB. [...]

  10. Good site
    Good luck the web designer.
