By

Via Mike Ashmore, the Yanks have brought back Noah Hall, who hit .292-.386-.469 with 19 doubles and 9 homers in 82 games for Double-A Trenton in 2007. He’s been assigned back to Trenton.

Triple-A Scranton (2-1 loss to Pawtucket)

Eric Duncan: 1 for 3
Josh Towers: 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 11-8 GB/FB – 48 of 79 pitches were strikes (60.8%) … he definitely could have gone the distance if some of the relievers didn’t need work

Double-A Trenton (5-3 win over New Hampshire)

Kyle Anson: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Ivan Nova: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 12-2 GB/FB – rockin’ a spiffy 2.64 GB/FB ratio

Low-A Charleston (8-2 loss to Lexington)
Abe Almonte: 1 for 5
Corban Joseph: 2 for 5, 1 E (throwing) – he’s had a hit in every game since being promoted, so he’s working on an 11 game hit streak

    A-Jax is starting to rack up the Ks.

    • Doug

      starting?

  • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

    Wait, Josh Towers the same guy who pitched for the Jays a couple years back?

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

      Yeah.

      • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

        When the hell did they sign him?

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

          About two weeks ago, when SWB had like, two healthy starters.

          • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

            BTW. Do you want Hughes in the Bullpen when Wang is ready to go?

            • whozat

              Are you seriously asking that question?

              • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

                Not to you. No.

            • http://deleted RollingWave

              If he actually throws a inning without getting destroyed, maybe then we can start considering.

              If I may…

      One in the same. At another message board I used to use (and commenter Stryker still does), we used to have the “Josh Towers Award” for worst performance of the night.

        AJ wins tonight?

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          I nominate Ricky Nolasco:

          2.0 IP, 8 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 2 HR

          • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

            Yeah I saw that. I meant on the Yankees side of things.

  • Accent Shallow

    Nova really confuses me. Allegedly has great stuff, but he’s not a high-K guy, and he’s eminently hittable.

    Wonder if he gets a place on the 40-man next year.

  • DreDog

    Other than Z-Mac, why does it seem that AA has anybody?

  • yankees=warriors

    I just read that Scranton had their Kangaroo court as well!
    It was on the 19th and Duncan (don’t know which one) was the judge.
    Wang was fined for not pitching with his sox up in his first rehab game.
    But compared with the Majors, the fine was measly…only $5!

    ——————————————————————————–
    Joba Rules (NY): Melancon or Bard?

    Jim Callis: Bard.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Heh.

    There’s just something about those straight high 90s FBs out of the pen.

    Oh what’s that you say?

    Minor leaguers can’t hit them?

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

      Between the two of those, I’d probably take Bard as well to be perfectly honest.

      I remember when the debate was Joba/Bard. How the mighty have fallen.
