Triple-A Scranton had a scheduled day off. They play two with Pawtuckett today to make up a twice-postponed game.

Double-A Trenton (11-2 loss to Binghamton in 7 innings — called for rain, maybe?)
Reggie Corona: 2 for 3
Bronson Sardinha: 0 for 3
Cody Ehlers: 2 for 3
PJ Pilittere: 1 for 3, 1 2B — had both of Trenton’s RBI
Jeff Marquez: 5.1 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K — kid hasn’t been the same lately

High-A Tampa (11-6 loss to Brevard County)
Kevin Russo: 2 for 4, 1 3B, 1 K
Ajax: 2 for 5, 1 HR, 2 K — .354/.393/.601 with Tampa in 178 at bats
Jose Tabata: 1 for 4, 1 HR — 2nd home run in 3 days, as the title indicates
The Other Edwar: 1 for 4, 2 K
Vech: 2 for 4
Frankie Cervelli: 1 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K
Elvys Quezada: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
David Robertson: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K — here’s to hoping he opens next season in Trenton

Low-A Charleston (it’s saying there’s no scoreboard for yesterday. They had a scheduled day off, so that makes sense)

Short Season Staten Island (suspended due to rain. They’ll play two today)

Rookie GCL Yanks (also suspended for rain. Doubleheader today)

  • Mike K

    Tabata Watch?

    Kennedy is almost too close. Get in at the ground floor.

  • Mike

    I say go out of the box and do a Dan McCutchen Watch; he’s tearing it up, no matter what level.

    Good to see Tabata flash some power, he’s been get ragged on a bit for his lack of pop. Hard to believe he’ll already be in Trenton next year…where does the time go?

  • dan

    im voting for the tabata watch. mike, whats the point of a mccutchen watch? he’s not gonna be an impact player even if he makes it before age 27. tabata will only be on the watch for a few years (probably), assuming he moves up a level each year, he could be a september callup in 2009. I didnt know who Mike, Ben and Joseph were when the hughes watch started, but hughes was probably on the watch for parts of 3 seasons, like tabata will be if he goes one level a year.

  • ShawnT

    I think mike started the hughes watch when he had the baby bombers site, i don’t Tabata has been that great that he needs a Watch list, id go for a kennedy one though

  • dan

    kennedy has been amazing in his first year of pro ball. but if he’s put on the watch, how long is he gonna be on it? i was looking for someone who will be on it for a little while. if not tabata, then horne maybe

  • Malcard89

    i vote austin jackson, currently he’s a little more exciting then tabata because of the power he’s flashing, plus he plays centerfield and he’s faster. he wont be up right away, so there’ll be time to monitor him, unlike kennedy, who should be up next year.
