Blown saves all around

By

With Joba now smiting hitters in the bigs, Ian Kennedy flies solo as the only Yankee farmhand on BA’s Hot Sheet this week. Another Baby Bomber is mentioned in the “Helium Watch” section, and it’s about time he started to get some love.

Triple-A Scranton (5-4 win over Buffalo in 11 innings)
Brett Gardner: 1 for 5, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K – threw a runner out at first…damn
Alberto Gonzalez & Kevin Reese: both 2 for 5, 1 RBI, 1 BB - Gonzalez scored a run & tripled
Angel Chavez: 2 for 6, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 K
Bronson Sardinha: 3 for 6, 2 K
Andy Cannizaro: 2 for 3, 2 BB
IPK: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K – one of those walks was intentional…not his best night, but it’s still only the 3rd time this year he’s allowed 3 or more ER in 23 starts
Sean Henn: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – 17 of 20 pitches were strikes…damn
Edwar: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HB - 16.17 Kper9…but he did blow the save
Brian Bruney: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – 12 of 16 pitches were strikes…

Low-A Charleston (8-4 loss to West Virginia)
Hit Streak Hilligoss: 3 for 5, 1 2B, 1 RBI – 11 for his last 22 with 3 doubles and homer

Prilys Cuello: 1 for 4, 1 K
Zoilo Almonte: 0 for 4
Brandon Laird: 3 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B – 13 for his last 29 with 11 RBI

Slow night, so here’s how some of the bigger names in the Dominican Summer League are doing:
Jose Pirela: .280-.383-.377 with 7 2B, 2 3B, 3 HR, 22 RBI, 15 SB and a 33-15 K/BB ratio in 55 games – depending on who you ask, he’s the Yanks’ best prospect down in the Dominican
Jahdiel Santamaria: .337-.422-.521 with 12 2B, 5 3B, 3 HR, 36 RBI, 9 SB and a 13-23 K/BB ratio in 48 games – besides having a really cool name, this kid’s one to keep in mind and look out for next year when he comes to the States…he’s got some serious ability
Carlos Urena: .233-.306-.421 with 9 2B, 7 HR, 27 RBI, 3 SB and a 52-11 K/BB ratio in 44 games

    Another IPK note: the only runs he’s given up in AAA have been against Buffalo. Not sure what that means (if anything), but there you go. Maybe they just have his number.

  • ricardo

    with the draft signing deadline coming up tomorrow, have any new signings been announced?

  • C-Note

    Bruney has a great arm, if they can get him to throw stikes in AAA, then to throw strikes in Da Bronx he would be another quality arm in pen- I see he also hasn’t beeen used too much sinec he went down, hopefully they are resting his arms and doing some work with him to get him ready for Sept 1 call up (still think edwar should be back in bronx before him)

  • barry

    farnsworth has a great arm too so whats it mean in the end

  • C-Note

    what it means is Bruney has had times last year and this year where he has been effective– Farnsy is a million dollar arm on a ten cent head, what it means in the end is that we can still get something out of Bruney

  • Dude

    mike, whatchoo mean gardner threw out a runner at 1st? you mean on a single, or a runner getting back to 1st on an out?

    if that’s a single, SHIT he can fly!

    I’m not sure Dude, but I figure it was just some guy who wandered too far off base and got doubled off on a flyout/lineout.
