The Braves just DFA’ed Bob Wickman…at this point, with rosters set to expand in a week, how do the Yanks not take a flier? 

Triple-A Scranton (6-2 loss to Rochester)
Brett Gardner: 1 for 4
Eric Duncan: 0 for 4, 1 K, 1 E (throwing) – don’t look now, but he’s 10 for his last 35 with 5 doubles, a triple, a homer & 9 RBI
Alberto Gonzalez: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
Jose Cruz Jr.: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B – 5 for Yankees
Angel Chavez: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 E (fielding)
Bronson Sardinha: 0 for 4, 1 K – 1 for his last 16
Kevin Thompson: 1 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 K
Steven White: 5 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 1 E (pick-off) – even with the error, he still picked another guy off
TJ Beam: 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Ben Kozlowski: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – team MVP threw 7 of 10 pitches for strikes

Double-A Trenton (5-4 win over Binghampton in 11 innings, walk-off style)
Reegie Corona: 0 for 4, 1 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 E (both throwing)
Colin Curtis: 4 for 6, 2 R, 2 RBI – 10 for his last 22 to raise his Trenton batting average up to .227
Juan Miranda: 0 for 4, 1 BB, 3 K – 2 K’s away from 100
Mike Kinkade: 1 for 5, 2 RBI, 1 BB
Cody Ehlers: 1 for 5, 1 2B, 1 BB, 3 K
Noah Hall: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K – walk-off bases loaded walk
Tyler Clippard: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 1 HB – only a 91-60 K/BB ratio in 112.1 IP this year, which is very, very un-Clippard-like
Scott Patterson: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 4-0 GB/FB – 7 ER allowed this year…7!
Justin Pope: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HB, 7-1 GB/FB – blew the save via a HB, runner moving to 2nd on a grounder, runner then moving to 3rd on a grounder, & an error…that’s tough

High-A Tampa‘s game, much like the Yankees’ game, kept getting pushed back due to rain. You can find the box score here, but it’s Friday night so I’m going to go do stuff I hopefully won’t remember tomorrow. 

Low-A Charleston (7-4 loss to Rome)
Hit Streak Hilligoss: 0 for 5 – how many times do you think he went hitless in 5 straight ABs this year? I’m willing to bet it’s less than a dozen…
James Cooper: 2 for 5, 1 R, 2 SB
Seth Fortenberry: 1 for 3, 1 R, 2 BB, 1 K – he’s cooled down in a major way after crushing everything thrown at him in the first half
Silent Bob: 3 for 5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Joe Muich, Chase Odenreider & Luis Nunez: all 1 for 4 – Muich walked, K’ed, and drove one in
Paul Patterson: 4 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
Luke Trubee: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – first run allowed in 14 IP

Short Season Staten Island (10-0 loss to Vermont)
Justin Snyder: 0 for 2, 1 K, 1 E (fielding) – whoa, he didn’t reach base…
Damon Sublett: 1 for 4, 3 K – 7 K in his last 13 AB
Braedyn Pruitt, Ryan Wehrle & David Williams: all 1 for 2 – the Rutgers alumni K’ed
Matt Morris: 2 for 3
Zach McAllister: 3 IP, 7 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 1 WP – that’s Mike Mussina good
Jason Kiley: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Kyle Hollander & Nick Peterson: combined 2.1 IP, bunch of zeroes, 2 K

Rookie GCL Yanks (4-0 win over GCL Phillies)
Abe Almonte & Jesus Cuello: both 2 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K – Almonte gunned a runner down at the plate from CF…Montero doubled
Prilys Cuello: 0 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB
Wady Rufino: 1 for 2, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – .357-.431-.607-1.038
Brad Suttle: 0 for 2, 1 BB
Taylor Grote: 0 for 1, 1 BB – pinch-hit walk for Gerardo Rodriguez in his first ever pro plate appearance
Noel Castillo: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 4-1 GB/FB
Angel Reyes: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K – 49-44 K/BB ratio in 46 IP

    bad day for some good prospects… duncan, mcallister, miranda, gardner, clippard. but who cares, jose cruz is the future.

  • Relaunch

    Hey, what happened to the stock of TJ Beam. I remember last year that is the guy they called up multiple times. Has he been hurt or just bypassed by better options?
