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.

    the AAA As game is gonna be on TV right?…what channel?..i looked on my guide and couldnt find it tomorrow

  2. A.D. says:

    De Leon just crushing.

  3. Bonos says:

    Minor point – Joseph 2 RBI, no Ks

  4. Jamal G. says:

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

    The fuck?

  5. Jeety says:

    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.

  6. Mike Pop says:

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

  7. yanke1313 says:

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

  8. DeLeon: Needs to not be at the GCL…

    • Mike bk says:

      is there a big difference between GCL and Short Season?

      • Rick in Boston says:

        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.

    • Jamal G. says:

      Eh, his strikeouts are a bit high.

      • 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.)

  9. AndrewYF says:

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

  10. Doug says:

    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.

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

  12. Marc says:

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

    BTW What’s DeLeon’s BABIP?

  13. yanke1313 says:

    Deleons babip is .485.

  14. Mike Pop says:

    When will Melvin come to the states?

  15. TurnTwo says:

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. Jack says:

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

  18. barry says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

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

  19. The Artist says:

    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 says:

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

  20. Lou says:

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

  21. [...] Yankees to make it are Jackson and Duncan (who will respectively hit leadoff and cleanup). (h/t to RAB) Shelley finished second in the homerun [...]
