Lare dominates as SI wins again


Scroll down for tonight’s All Star Game Thread.

Triple-A Scranton is off until Thursday for the All Star break. Shelley Duncan came in second in the Homerun Derby last night, but the game isn’t being played until tomorrow. Austin Jackson will lead off, and Shelley will clean up for the International League. Tucker Gordon, a regular RAB reader, was there and took some video of Shelley swinging away.

Double-A Trenton is off until Thursday for the All Star break. If you’re heading to the game in Trenton tomorrow night, remember to check out our Eastern League All Star Game Preview.

      ESPN2 at 10pm. Game’s in Portland.

  • A.D.

    De Leon just crushing.

  • Bonos

    Minor point – Joseph 2 RBI, no Ks

    Corban Joseph: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 4 K

    The fuck?

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

      Yeah yeah yeah, so sue me. Fixed now.

      • http://twitter.com/JamalG Jamal G.

        Heh, I wasn’t being a dick, I really thought something zany happened.

  • Jeety

    A few points…

    Lassiter is a real young guy, but he can definitely hit, the fielding will come…

    Jospeh has been hot for a while now, another young guy who seems to have a good upside…

    Medchill has really been killing the ball, possibly just old for his level, but i remember baseball america liked this pick, i figure we gotta wait till he’s at a more age appropriate level to get excited huh?

    Oh and yea… I miss Jackson and Montero too guys.

  • Mike Pop

    Is Trenton Lare a real prospect with some kind of potential?

    • Mike bk

      he’s 25 and in short season.

      • Mike Pop

        So that’s a no.

        • Jeffrey

          Could he be turned into a lefty reliever?

          • Mike Pop

            Trade him for Ian snell.

            • Doug

              are the snell rumors just smoke or is there some fire there?

              • Mike Pop

                I don’t know. I’d pick him up and put him in the 8th.

              • Mike bk

                if snell lets hughes be a starter go for it. besides its the pirates we can probably get him for igawa…lol.

    • Jeffrey

      Who is he and whats he got? He has been really good so far. It would be nice to have good lefty prospect in the system.

      • Mike bk

        we have plenty with more upside than him. Man Ban, Turley, Bleich and we drafted a bunch more this year.

  • yanke1313

    I love Lassiter. I just wish he was still a SS.

    DeLeon: Needs to not be at the GCL…

    • Mike bk

      is there a big difference between GCL and Short Season?

      • Rick in Boston

        Biggest difference is that GCL is typically where high schoolers who have never really used wood bats and IFA’s come over for seasoning. Short Season A-ball is usually where just-drafted college players and guys already in the system end up.

        Considering it is his first season in the US, De Leon is probably just left where he is. Next year, though, I expect to see him break camp in Charleston.

    • http://twitter.com/JamalG Jamal G.

      Eh, his strikeouts are a bit high.

      • http://farm1.static.flickr.com/153/413671602_daded72a81_m.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

        No, no, no, you’re doing it wrong, Jamal. Any prospect who has a good stretch of, say, 15-25 games simply must be promoted. Get with the program, son.

        (Joking aside… The kid is 18 and playing in the US for the first time, what say we let him just stay in one place and play some baseball before we worry about rushing him through the system every time he hits a few bombs.)

  • AndrewYF

    Any chance DeLeon enters the Yankee top 10 by the end of the year?

  • Doug

    Yes, DeLeon’s mashing but he does have 23 Ks in 64 ABs. Think he needs to get that a bit more under control before a promotion is in order.

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

    So I just read DeLeon’s prospect blurb in the prospect handbook…he’s the prospect Yanks’ officials got caught skimming. Interesting.

  • Marc

    Notle has been a massive suck since coming over from the Twins.

    BTW What’s DeLeon’s BABIP?

    • Doug

      only .514

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

        holy motherfucker

        • Doug

          couldn’t have said it better myself

      • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

        It’s 64 AB! 64! In the GCL!!!!

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

          Yeah, the 21 K to 4 BB is a little o_O;;

          • Doug

            actually, 23 to 4 after tonite. and the 4 walks were in only 2 games

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

              Heh, at least now we know what he’s gotta work on…

              • Doug

                but does he know ;-)

          • V

            Hey, if he turns into Soriano, I’d be thrilled.

            Obviously, I’d like better ;-), but when projecting these kids, it’s going to take time to see patience, if ever.

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      This is either very funny or deeply disturbing.

    • Mike bk

      coming into today .458

  • yanke1313

    Deleons babip is .485.

  • Mike Pop

    When will Melvin come to the states?

    • yanke1313

      probably never.

      • Bryan


      • Mike Pop

        Ruinin’ my high.

      • Thomas

        The US will come to him.

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

      If he’s not here by now, you gotta think the Yanks know something the rest of us do not.

  • TurnTwo

    is anyone else going to the EL ASG tomorrow?

    i plan on getting there when gates open at 2pm for pics and autographs… but if other peeps are going, we should meet up in the picnic area for a brew or something.

    thanks again, mike, for putting the cheat sheet together.

  • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

    Is it me, or is CoJo swinging the bat pretty well the past few weeks? I know the overall numbers don’t look great, but he’s turning it on in the second half. Surely those Chase Utley comps where a bit high, but an offensive 2b would be nice to add to the stable.

    • Doug

      over last 10, hitting .475 with a 7/4 BB/K ratio

  • Jack

    Mike – I know Rabago plays everywhere, but is he considered a plus fielder anywhere?

  • barry

    Shelley’s swing looks a little refined, not as long and wide as it was. It still opens up a little when he finishes but his bat speed looks faster. They ought to at least give the guy a couple at bats, I mean if they put him on 3rd base for a couple in AAA he could easily replace cody ransom on that team if they could work out a back up shortstop.

    • V

      Duncan at 3B or SS would be like Giambi at 3B or SS. It ain’t happening.

      I know people hate Ransom, but he is 10x the fielder Duncan could have ever hoped to be.

      • Rick in Boston

        Didn’t Giambi come up as a 3B? If so, Shelly at 3B would make Giambi at 3B look comparatively decent.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    From the “Where are they now” file. Former Yankee Prospect Jose Tabata.

    AA 2009-.271/.354/.353 with 2 HRs and a .707 OPS


    The power still hasn’t shown up, and now he seems just as disinterested playing for the Pirates as he did for us.

    • Rick in Boston

      I think the fact that he’s actually playing will probably make the Pirates happy, especially after his f’ed up off-season.

  • Lou

    Is Neil Medchill a future prospect or is he just a filler?

    • barry

      he’s a 2009 draftee i think
