Double-A Trenton (9-2 loss to Binghamton)
Reegie Corona: 1 for 4, 1 K
Colin Curtis: 0 for 4 – 24 XBH is actually fewer than Brett Gardner (26) despite a whole lot more games played (114 to 88)
Juan Miranda: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – 50 XBH is the same number as Curtis & Gardner combined

Short Season Staten Island (SI’s winning 11-6 in the 8th) this game is taking forever to finish, and I don’t want to wait around for it. Here’s where they stand now:
Justin Snyder: 0 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 E (fielding)- reached base in 27 straight games…drawn a walk in 8 straight

Zoilo Almonte: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 K – 11 hits & 8 RBI in his last 8 games

Jesus Montero: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 PB – that’s his 3rd passed ball on the year
Brad Suttle: 0 for 3, 1 K, 1 E (fielding) - pro debut for the Yanks 4th rounder…he was buried so low in the lineup that I nearly missed him
Lance Pendleton: 1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HB, 1 WP

  1. Dude says:

    what have you heard about Salcedo? anything different than pending pinstripes?

  2. Mike A. says:

    Haven’t heard anything other than what they reported. $4.5M is a ton of money for a kid like that, but then again, since when has money ever been an issue for the Fightin’ Steinbrenners?

  3. Ben K. says:

    Kevin Smith: 3 for 4, 2 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 HBP – 7 RBI in his last 4 games

    Have I really missed a Yankee farmhand named Silent Bob this whole year? Wow.

  4. Ben K. says:

    Also, Jairo Heredia hasn’t pitched at all since lasting just 2 IP on the 15th. Something wrong there?

  5. Rick in Boston says:

    What we could be seeing for pitchers at this time is a lot of guys hitting their individual IP/pitches thrown limits for the year. The minor league regular season ends next weekend, so some guys might be shutting it down until Instructionals or mini-camps this fall.

    Anyone want to start trying to figure out who the Yanks send to the AFL? I’m guessing Claggett, Ohlendorff, Miranda, maybe someone like Hit Streak or Ajax who they want to push.

  6. Bill in Kuwait says:

    I guess you read a different log/box score than the rest of us. Blumenthal had one passed ball and Clagget had 3 wild pitches according to milb log.

  7. Mike A. says:

    Bill – If the problem is passed balls & wild pitches, than there’s a good chance there was a change in scoring after the fact. It’s also possible I made a mistake (which I’ve been known to do), but you don’t see 3 PB that often, so it stuck out in my head. Glad to see that someone’s paying attention though.

    Ben – I’ve called him Silent Bob once or twice in DotF in the past. I wasn’t sure if anyone got the joke though.

  8. Bill in Kuwait says:

    Mike, I pay a lot of attention to Ben Blumenthal…he is my son and I am stuck in the Middle East working for the Army. I depend on you guys and MILB.com to keep up. He caught 26 games in the GCL and I think he had two passed balls. He got promoted to Tampa when Cervilli got hurt. I read every article I can on River Ave Blues. Awsome site, just defensive about Ben.

    Thanks again

  9. Mike R. says:

    Minky has made himself into quite the prospect. At this rate he’ll crack the top 30 anytime now.

  10. [...] (9-6 win over Lowell) Justin Snyder: 0 for 3, 1 K, 1 E (throwing) - I totally jinxed him with this post, cause he hasn’t reached base in the last 3 games Taylor Holiday: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K [...]
