Montero’s two homers lead Tampa to win

Game 20 Spillover Thread II
Yanks find the other end of a blowout, down Tigers 11-0

Ian Kennedy was in New York today to see the Yanks’ team doctor after feeling numbness in one of his fingers during his start last night. Guess it wasn’t a blister after all. That’s all I got at this time, hopefully he’s okay. Meanwhile, Alan Horne will start on Saturday. Not sure who it’ll be for yet.

Triple-A Scranton (6-0 loss to Lehigh Valley)
Doug Bernier, John Rodriguez, Eric Duncan & PJ Pilittere: all 0 for 3 – Bernier drew a walk & K’ed … J-Rod was hit by a pitch & K’ed … E-Dunc committed a fielding error at the hot corner … PJ K’ed
Todd Linden & Juan Miranda: both 1 for 4 – Linden doubled & K’ed twice … Miranda K’ed
Shelley Duncan: 2 for 4
Austin Jackson: 2 for 3, 1 K
Eric Hacker: 6 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 1 Balk, 7-3 GB/FB – 65 of 102 pitches were strikes (63.7%) … gave up all 5 runs in the third, but other than that he was pretty good

Mike Dunn: 2 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 1-4 GB/FB – lowers his Kper9 to 13.88 (it was 15.82 before this game)
Amaury Sanit: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1-0 GB/FB

High-A Tampa (3-1 win over Lakeland)

Eric Fryer & Matt Cusick: both 0 for 4 – Cusick K’ed twice
Jesus Montero: 2 for 4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI – hitting .371-.421-.614 in the Florida State League as a 19 year old … that’s ama-za-zing

Grant Duff: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Jon Ortiz: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1-2 GB/FB – hasn’t been as automatic this year as he was last year

Low-A Charleston (7-6 loss to Asheville, walk-off style)
Carmen Angelini: 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 E (fielding) – it’s getting comical, really

  • A.D.

    Call up Monetero, put him in CF…problem solved.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00mwbIM15ofMv/340x.jpg Mike Pop

    Jesus Montero is unbelievable. Great signing by Cashman, good thing they found him. I thought all Cash could do was give big money to American free agents…..

    A-Jax looking good also.

    • Lanny

      We going to pat him on the back for one good young prospect??

      what would you do to theo epstein? ask him to move in?

      • steve (different one)

        you are annoying.

        • K.B.D.

          IETC.

  • Jake H

    Montero is a beast. How many weeks does he have to keep doing this until he gets called up to Trenton? If he is doing this through May I would call him up.

    • Accent Shallow

      Maybe at the end of the year. His defense does have to develop.

      • Jake H

        Oh I agree but his calling card is never going to be his D.

  • Ivan

    Montero is just a monster.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    OK, time for WDLR to get bumped up to AA. I know it’s only two starts, but he ended there last year and now he needs to go back.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

    Without having any test results, that Kennedy news is not good.

    • Raf

      yup. numbness in your fingers is never a good sign.

      • Steve in MN

        i actually get numb hands every time i swim-for me its issues with my rotator cuff, so yea, not a good sign

          yeah

      • steve (different one)

        “dog bite”?

  • A.D.

    5 Runs on 5 hits is tough…but 8ks is nice.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    Venditte 2 R but no ER? Does Angelini’s E have anything to do with it?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

      Surprisingly, no. Those two unearned runs were classic A ball errors. After getting two outs, Venditte gave up two singles and then with two on and two out, this happened:

      With Delta Cleary batting, Carlos Martinez steals (5) 3rd base, Carlos Martinez scores. Scott Robinson scores. Scott Robinson steals (10) 2nd base. Throwing error by catcher Mitch Abeita. Throwing error by center fielder Raymond Kruml.

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        guess he’s not human.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

          Next time, I hope Abeita just lets the runners score.

    • Jake H

      No his error was earlier. Kruml had the error to lose the game.

  • Accent Shallow

    Mike,

    I believe you commented before that Wilkins de la Rosa profiles best as a reliever in the future, and he doesn’t have especially great stuff; fastball-slider guy. I’m wondering how he has such a K-rate, then? Is it just that guys in the minors don’t see many power lefties?

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

      It’s a combination of his raw stuff and his control, which is above average and freaking exceptional for a recent convertee. Pitching against A-ballers doen’t hurt either.

  • james

    How bad is Angelini?! Not only is the worst fielder in the known universe, but he can’t hit either. Why did we give him that huge bonus?

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      I honestly think that they should promote him. Let him play at Steinbrenner Field, see if that helps his fielding.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

      Yes, but right now the comedy is kinda gold

      [I know it’s not funny, and that it’s a young man’s livelihood…but it’s funny.]

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        We could have either a “Angelini Error Drive” fundraiser or a “Carmen Boots, You Drink” game.

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

          Next year we’ll just base our Pledge Drive on Angelini errors.

          • Andy in Sunny Daytona

            Next year may be too late.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00mwbIM15ofMv/340x.jpg Mike Pop

    Man, Brian Baisley is 27. Just a filler, eh.

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      Mike, Any truth to the rumor that they are going to send Baisley to the Dominican Summer League? Can the guy get a promotion? He’s a career .323 hitter in the minors. For Mo’s sake, he 45 years old already.

  • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/baseballdigestdaily Eric SanInocencio

    Is really premature to think that AJax could be ready in another month if he keeps up this pace? How long does he have to hit well (cut down on Ks too) in order to be in line for a callup? Just wondering everyone’s thoughts on when we could see the kid.

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

      September at the earliest.

      • Tony

        No way would they have a CF hitting .340 in the minors for four months with Gardky in the majors.

        • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

          If they want to develop him properly, they will. Or do you want another Melky on your hands? I believe Melky could have been a much better player if he had the time to develop in the minors.

          • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

            See…this is the problem with the pro-Melky crowd. Melky was never a really great prospect. His low minors numbers are middling, and none of the prospects experts were that high on his ability, talent or Major League viability. He was among the Yankees top prospects because he was young and showed some athleticism at a time when the team had no position players in the minors.

            • Lanny

              Don’t be shocked to see him up here by June especially if he keeps raking.

            • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

              I’m not saying I was high on him in the minors, but I still believe he could be better then he is, if he had time develop more. Don’t group me in there, I was all for Beltran.

            • Drew

              I’ll sit this one out. ;)

            • Andy in Sunny Daytona

              That’s the standard Melky argument with you guys, that he wasn’t a highly regarded prospect. Can the experts ever be wrong? Maybe he would have been a highly regarded prospect if he wasn’t rushed through the minors. You guys don’t know.
              Who knows what would have happened with his career if he would have gotten a full year in AA and in AAA.

              • A.D.

                But if you go down that road then you can say it for everyone.

                Melky may have been rushed, but he isn’t a ruined top prospect.

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  I guess you can say it for everyone, everyone who was rushed to the majors at age 20.

              • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

                That’s the standard Melky argument with us because it’s true. He was the team’s 8th ranked prospect in Jan. 2005 when their organization sucked. BA called him the team’s best hitter for average but they called him an average defender. They also said, “His approach and swing are geared more toward line drives and contact, so he doesn’t profile as well on a corner.”

                The following year Melky wasn’t even on the team’s top 10 list. That’s just the way it is. I think fans’ expectations simply outpaced reality.

                • Drew

                  Those scouts are wrong as often as they’re right. The ghost of a young Eric Duncan still haunt me.

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  In 2005 BA had Steven White ranked higher than CMW. It had Eric Duncan ranked in the top 5 for like 3 years. How did those calls work out? Baseball America isn’t infallible.

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

                  I feel like you’re running in circles right here though. How does BA’s being wrong on those prospects make them not right on Melky? He’s pretty much what they predicted him to be — a fourth outfielder.

                • Drew

                  A fourth outfielder right now, he’s still 3 or 4 years away from his physical and mental “prime.” If this season ends like last year, I may have to jump off his bandwagon, just not yet though.
                  Also, his 2 decent seasons probably project better in the NL. A lot of guys kill a lot of National League pitching because it’s generally not as good as AL pitching.

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  No put your biases aside, but if Melky plays the entire 2006 in AAA, do you think Baseball America ranks him in the top 10 for 2007?

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

                  Depends what he does. But let’s take a look at the list from 2007:

                  1. Philip Hughes, rhp
                  2. Jose Tabata, of
                  3. Dellin Betances, rhp
                  4. Joba Chamberlain, rhp
                  5. Ian Kennedy, rhp
                  6. Chris Garcia, rhp
                  7. Tyler Clippard, rhp
                  8. J. Brent Cox, rhp
                  9. Mark Melancon, rhp
                  10. Brett Gardner, of

                  I’d say there’s a good chance Melky could have claimed the 10 spot from Gardner with a good showing in AAA for all of 2006. BA was rather high on some of those guys — Clippard and Cox notably — and it’s tough to see Melky landing ahead of them without some sort of monster 2006 at AAA. The fact remains that BA didn’t see Melky with that high of a ceiling.

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  I guess only time will tell with Melky. Odds are that you will be right about him.

        • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

          If they care about developing him properly, they sure as hell will leave him in Scranton. I also highly doubt that Gardbera or Cabretta or Gelky or whatever will be starting in CF by June.

    • Jake H

      He’s doing good but he is only 22. There isn’t a lot of guys who makes the bigs at age of 22. Let him develop and gain more confidence.

      • Chris G

        One Bernabe Figueroa Williams played 85 games at the tender age of 22.

        • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

          yes, but the yankees sucked when he came up, gave him time to develop.

          • steve (different one)

            luckily the yankees suck now, so it should be ideal. right?

            • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

              hmmmm, no. It’s fricken April, they’ve got off to a slow start. They don’t suck.

              • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

                I think your sarcasm detector is broken ;)

                  ah….fixed it, sorry.

        • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

          Can people stop comparing the Yankees’ young CFs to Bernie? Please?

          • Mattingly’s Love Child

            Well if you like we could compare them to DiMaggio. But there isn’t enough data in the spreadsheets to show if Joe D was any good.

        • Mattingly’s Love Child

          But he was the most feared hitter of the last 30 years, so of course they brought him up at age 22! They could have brought him up at age 18, but they wanted to give the league time to come up with a game plan so they would know what to do when pitchers wet themselves seeing him step to the box.

        • RollingWave

          and did you check Bernie’s stats in his first couple of season?

      • Drew

        Melkster. :)

  • A.D.

    Mike I know you and other have said Kontos projects better as a reliever, what exactly does he throw/not throw for this to be true?

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

      He’s fastball-slider with a fringe changeup and below average control. He’s like Jose Veras with a little less raw stuff.

      • RollingWave

        does that mean he also falls off the mound and never seem to be able to repeat his delivery?

  • james

    I would give A-Jax a full year in AAA and then have him compete for a starting job in the bigs next spring training

    • Accent Shallow

      With that K-rate, I say he has to stay in AAA for a year, minimum.

  • DP

    Hah. Montero in the MLE Calculator OPS’s .797.

    • Accent Shallow

      Wish you could run his minor league numbers through whatever translations Baseball Prospectus uses:

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      I’d like to see him post a IsoD better than 0.50 over the course of the season, but that’s just me being a dick.

      • DP

        Haha that’s like complaining about Cano’s .039 (which I was earlier thinking I’d like to see higher- whoops.)

      • DP

        And yeah, Montero probably should also. His BA isn’t gonna stay in the .370s (I don’t think)

      • V

        IsoD is overrated for high BAs.

        If they’re giving you pitches to hit, I’ll take a single over a BB ANYDAY.

        If his (Montero AND Cano) BA falls to human levels, then yes, I’d look at IsoD. Otherwise, ignore it.

    • Buddy

      That sounds about right for him as a rookie

  • A.D.

    Nice 10.6 K/9 from the minor league starters, 12.1 if you skip Phelps.

  • Tripp

    Kontos to AAA if Kennedy has to go on the DL?

  • BigBlueAL

    Its weird watching the Indians-Red Sox game and the Indians broadcasters were talking about how Matt Laporta was tearing up AAA for the Columbus Clippers. I was like WTF the Yankees have Laporta now!!! Then I remembered, still not used to the Columbus Clippers NOT being the Yankees AAA team.

  • A.D.

    Hughes is going to call into BBTN for those interested.

    • A.D.

      Ah not till Midnight

  • AndrewYF

    Any mention of Montero’s home/road splits? OPSing .605 at home, 1.395 on the road. Another great sign, as if he needed one.

    • kSturnz

      C/DH splits aren’t too good. will def change as he gets more comfortable catching, though. And he will get comfortable catching.

  • kSturnz

    caps rule! fedorov in the presser: “I just wanted to make sure the puck got deep and the d gave me room. short side high, pretty standard stuff” there were some big saves by henrik, though.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Seriously, who would be a better back up catcher right now, Molina or Montero?

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

      Molina because you want your back up catcher to play defense.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Yeah Molina is great defensively. Look at how Phil owned today.

    • Jeff

      I agree with Molina at backup. Anyway Montero can hit the cover off the ball, but he can’t handle a pitching staff like a veteran. Also, Molina is actually hitting at a pretty good clip and that slam was nice insurance.

  • A.D.

    Almost missed it but damn good for Alan Horne to be back on a mound, at this point are the going to try and keep starting him for trade value, or move him to the pen?

  • Dave

    Classic pitchers injury involving finger numbness, specifically the pinky and half of the ring finger, is cubital tunnel syndrome. It’s very similar to carpal tunnel, except it is a compression syndrome of the nerve (ulnar) at the middle part of the elbow. Initial treatment is generally conservative with splinting and rest, combined with anti inflammatory drugs, and cortisone shots. If that doesn’t do the trick, surgical intervention could be indicated. It could be something else, but if it is indeed the pinky that is numb, pretty good chance its this.

  • avi404

    Probably the wrong thread but Boston just lost and it was a pleasure watching the error that led to the final run.

    You all must watch Youk’s stunned face!

    a cherry to top it all. Good night. :))

    Wow! I’m pissed off. Gameday doesn’t let you watch video clips anymore, you have to pay for them by getting Gameday “premium”. Fucking joke.

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

      I was pretty angry about that.

  • Reggie C.

    I think Montero is actually leading the FSL in slugging. Its been an impressive start. However, it’ll get harder to ignore the write-ups that consistently project Montero’s catching prowress as inadequate for ML purpose. So is Montero staring at a future as full-time DH if the yanks decide to promote him based on his hitting development?

    • Drew

      I don’t know too much about him, but I know he’s more than athletic enough to play the corners.

      • Reggie C.

        Teixeira is locked in at 1B for 8 years. A-rod should be able to mann the hot corner for another 4 years. Maybe longer. A-rod isn’t a typical athlete. His recovery exemplifies this. The CF jokes are funny for sure, till their not. When Montero is ready to mash ML pitching, we better have a replaceable DH.

        And i’d love to see Montero stay at catching. But the write-ups ….

        • Drew

          Nah, I meant the corner outfield positions, should have clarified.

          • V

            Yeah, I don’t see why he couldn’t put up Manny Ramirez-esque defense in LF.

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              Meh, I love Montero and his bat, but he’s not Manny. That’s not a fair request to make, Manny’s inhuman.

              If he’s going to hit like, say, a Justin Morneau-level bat (still solidly all-star level but not MVP level), then if he’s playing Manny-esque defense in LF, I’m not sure that he’s truly an overall positive.

            • Drew

              Looking at him in the Futures game last year, he looked like he was athletic enough to get around well out there. Granted, he will gain some weight on his upper body but unless his physique dramatically changes I’d assume he can get around out there.

          • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

            If Jesus Montero can manage to play LF, I’ll be so freakin’ happy. Of course, if he can somehow stay at catcher, and by that I mean play at Jorge Posada/Mike Piazza levels, that would be even better.

    what catchers can we get next year? if jeter could play leftfield and we had molina and another good defensive catcher and a good defensive shortstop i think the team will be better off. add in ajax(possibly) and the team looks nice, no?

        wow tsjc. you are really on top of your game tonight. i guess hughes inspired you. sorry i came to a yanks blog to ask about available catchers for next season. how infantile of me. DICKHEAD!

          I mean, Josh, he has a point. All I’d do is go to google and type in “free agents 2010.” That would take you here, and the list isn’t that impressive.

          Don’t call other commenters dickheads.

            No, he’s right, I am a dickhead.

            I have a pet peeve against people asking to have information spoon-fed to them. Things that you can’t discover on your own, like a detailed scouting report on Chase Weems, for example, you should ask about.

            Basic information like what other catchers there are in the major leagues the Yankees could actually pursue, I’m sorry, you need to have the requisite intellectual curiosity and internet search aptitude to find shit like that out on your own.

            There’s too many people who don’t research and investigate shit for themselves, they just ask others what they should know and what they should think.

            Maybe I’m a dickhead for being annoyed by that and refusing to enable others for that.

            Sorry. (Not really.)

            • josh

              i guess i should have asked if anyone here has any info on catchers that the yanks might pursue for next season. inside info or even opinions for that matter. just looking to have a conversation about the future of the yankees behind the plate on this thread that seems to be dominated by montero and his future – sorry (but not really.) and for the dickhead thing, i was just joking with a guy who was breaking my balls.

              am i allowed to write balls on this blog ben – or should i call you pig vomit? W-NNNNNNNNBC!

                Honestly, the best way to accomplish that would be to:

                1) Google “2010 MLB free agents” and click on Tim’s list: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2008/09/2010-mlb-free-a.html

                2) Looked at the catchers on the list.

                3) Started a thread saying “Hey, I saw so and so on the free agent list” (or “I saw no one viable on the free agent list”). “Can we keep Jorge around until Montero or Romine are ready, or can the Yanks swing a trade?”

                Something along those lines. It shows you know something, or were able to figure it out, and starts an actual conversation with substance.

                  sorry again. thanks for the education guys.

  • Rich M

    When does Lassiter push Angelini off short?

  • Angel

    Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeesus!!

  • josh

    any shot we can add benjie molina? having those 2 behind the plate would be a good idea while helping to keep posada healthier for longer.

  • Baseballnation

    Well Josh since you asked try http://www.google.com

    tjsc is one funny mofo for that. And sorry Ben lol.

  • RollingWave

    because outside of Mauer / Mccane / Martin, there aren’t any catchers in the majors right now who can both hit and field. and isn’t past his prime.

  • JohnC

    May be time for Mike Dunn to move up to AAA. Also, who is this guy Amaury Sanit? He’s been pretty dominant so far.
