Romine starting to steal Montero’s thunder

By

Triple-A Scranton (1-0 win over Rochester)
Brett Gardner & Nick Green: both 1 for 3 – Gardner K’ed once & was caught stealing
Bernie Castro: 2 for 4, 1 K
Greg Porter: 1 for 4, 1 2B
rest of lineup: combined 0 for 13, 1 R, 1 RBI, 5 K, 4 K – Cody Ransom drove in Chris Stewart with a bases loaded walk for the game’s only run
Dan Giese: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 8-3 GB/FB – remember when Cash said Alan Horne would only miss one start? funny how that works, huh?
Heath Phillips, Scott Strickland & Jose Veras combined 4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K – each guy K’ed two apiece

Double-A Trenton (5-3 in over New Britain in 11 innings)
Ramiro Pena: 2 for 6, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 K – singled in the winning run off a very old friend (bonus points if you remember who he was traded for, no cheating please)
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI – working on a nice little 8 game hitting streak
Jose Tabata: 0 for 4, 1 BB, 3 K – 0 for his last 9 after going 11 for his previous 35
Colin Curtis: 1 for 5, 1 2B, 1 RBI – 7 hits, including 3 doubles, in his last 5 games
Matt Carson: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – 4th straight game with an extra base hit
Marcos Vechionacci: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K
George Kontos: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 5-5 GB/FB – he’s been extremely ordinary this year
Steven Jackson: 1.1 IP, zeroes, 2 K – 15-2 K/BB ratio in 13 IP
Mike Gardner: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 4-1 GB/FB
Eric Wordekemper: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K

High-A Tampa (3-0 win over Lakeland) 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 2 WP was Rick Porcello’s line in this game
Damon Sublett: 2 or 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 K – 9 for his last 21
Chris Kunda & Braedyn Pruitt: both 1 for 3 - Kunda had an RBI & was hit by a pitch
Mitch Hilligoss & Kyle Anson: both 1 for 4 – Hilligoss scored a run & K’ed once … Anson drove a run in
Seth Fortenberry: 0 for 2, 2 BB
James Cooper: 1 for 2, 1 R, 1 2B – hitting .448 on the young season
Eric Hacker: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 12-1 GB/FB – he’s easily been the best pitcher in the system this year … he’s allowed only 5 baserunners against a 15-1 K/BB ratio in his last 20 IP
Mark Melancon: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 0-4 GB/FB – hasn’t allowed a run in his last 3 appearances
JB Cox: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 3-0 GB/FB – sporting a very JB-like 2.67 Gb/FB ratio so far

Low-A Charleston (6-0 win over Columbus)
Abe Almonte: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 K – had been 5 for his last 34
Austin Krum: 1 for 5, 1 K
Justin Snyder: 1 for 3, 2 BB, 1 E (fielding) – on base 32 times in 15 games … too bad he’s committed 9 errors in that span too … that makes 3 straight games with an E
Jesus Montero: 0 for 4 – only his second 0-fer of the year … that breaks up his 11 game hit streak
Brandon Laird: 0 for 3, 1 BB
Austin Romine & David Williams: both 2 for 4, 1 2B, 1 K - Romine scored 2 runs & has had 5 straight multi-hit games, and 7 in his last 9 contests overall … Williams scored a run & drove one in
Dellin Betances: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 6-3 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) – heh, this is one of those lines that you don’t know what to do with, so you just laugh a little
Wilkins DeLaRosa: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 0-3 Gb/FB, 1 WP – 19 K in 10.2 IP
Jonathan Ortiz: 1 IP, zeroes, 2 K – 63-9 K/BB ratio in 39.1 IP as a pro

    Thanks Jamal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ;)

      Fine, I shall work my magic again.

      Mr. Tabata. Hey you, yeah you Mr. Tabata, you haven’t had a hit in a little bit.

    • http://www.myspace.com/j_panama Jamal G.

      BTW, you people have too long of a memory. :)

      • Mike R.

        I never forget good ball busting material, but it is all in good fun. :)

  • Ivan

    Betances put up of those lines that Nolan Ryan would be proud of.

    • Mike R.

      Interesting comparison. I guess it would be ok if Betances turns out to have Nolan Ryan’s career.

  • http://www.myspace.com/j_panama Jamal G.

    Love the outing by Joba after his emotional break. Sat 97-99 MPH with two strikeouts, the last of which came on a curveball.

    • zack

      Fat lot of good it does the Yanks to have him for those oh so valuable 8th innings these days, huh?

  • http://madein1903.com felix the cat

    Betances didn’t pitch the 6th and 7th

    OR DID HE :-)

    • Peequay

      No, De La Rosa pitched the 6th and 7th. They updated the box score.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Fuck the heck … the original box score didn’t have DeLaRosa listed…

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Fixed.

      • Mike R.

        MILB screwed up. The updated line for Betances is:

        Betances (W, 3-0) 5.0 2 0 0 5 5 0 2.66

        I don’t know if that is more impressive or less.

  • Mike R.

    What the heck are we going to do with Hacker? He is a 6 year FA if we don’t add him to the 40 man roster after this season.

  • The Scout

    Hacker is 25 years old and pitching in A-ball. You’re not talking high-level prospect here. He’d have to shine in AA ball for half the season to rate a roster spot. Don’t hold your breath.

    Dellin Betances: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 6-3 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) – heh, this is one of those lines that you don’t know what to do with, so you just laugh a little

    Thats Oliver Perez’s line every start. I think I’ll take it.

    • Mike R.

      Now that you bring up Oliver Perez. If you were Cashman, would you persue him this offseason? I think he is very intriguing.

      • Jamal G.

        Hell no. At the rate he’s going this season, coupled with last season, he’s going to be a Type A Free Agent. To lose a 1st Rd. pick on a guy and the amount of money (the Mets will make a good offer I expect so if he turns them and pitching coach Rick Peterson dow, it will have to be for more than a pretty penny) it would take to sign him is too much. Way too many bouts of inconsistency and he’s a career NL pitcher, no thanks.

  • Rich

    I think A-Jack could rise quickly.

    • http://www.myspace.com/j_panama Jamal G.

      He’s the 14th youngest player in the entire Double-A level (thank you projectprospect.com), I think he’s risen fast enough.

      Especially since he was a two-sport athlete and his baseball tools were considered raw just three years ago after being drafted in the June 2005 draft.

      • Rich

        A-Jack is virtually the same age as Maybin.

  • Jamal G.

    Come on Mike, admit it. You’re coming around just a bit on Wilkins De la Rosa. I know the walks are more stressful because he’s a reliever but yo can’t argue with a near 18 K/9.

  • stuart

    why mention people like nick green, he is not a prospect.

    he is a career bad utility player….

  • Tom

    Just a guess here…Sterling Hitchcock? That’s if you’re talking about Ben Julianel. If you’re not talking about him, I have no idea.

    • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

      No. Ron Villone.

  • Danny

    You are both right. Julianel was acquired for Sterling Hitchcock, and then traded away for Ron Villone.

  • gxpanos

    Man, I’m starting to get Betances-boner. What’s his eta if all goes well? 2011? 2012?
