DeLeon’s big day propels GCL Yanks to a win

Game 122 Spillover Thread III
Godzilla goes to Boston

Zach McAllister was in the team photo in this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. Melky Mesa got some love in the Helium Watch. Also, Chad Jennings reports that Mike Dunn was told by the organization that he’ll probably go to the Arizona Fall League if he wasn’t called up in September. We already know Ian Kennedy and Colin Curtis are headed to the AzFL.

Game 2 was rained out. They’ve go two more series with Rome left this year, so plenty of time to make it up.

Short Season Staten Island was washed out. They’ve got a three game series with Tri-City next weekend, so I’m assuming they’ll make it up then.

Game 122 Spillover Thread III
Godzilla goes to Boston
  • Mr.Jigginz

    Another good game for JR Murphy….Nice little start for him,so far.

    • DreDog

      Sounds good to me!!!

    • Jeffrey

      Agreed. Its good for him to have a nice start. Too early to tell, but Murphy and DeLeon might do well starting out in the minors, not a bad 3-4 tandem. Mo knows the Yankees will be needing catching and OF help in the future.

  • Mike bk

    is Jose Ramirez legit?

  • The Artist

    3 H and 3 BB in 2 IP? That has to lower Brackman’s WHIP, right?

    • Dela G

      oh yeah my mane!

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    In DSL action, Melvin nailed down his 13th save to keep the Yankees in first place. 2 innings 1 K, zeroes.

    (Drink, bitches)

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Only one strikeout in two innings? What happened?

      • Matt ACTY/BBD

        Melvin took mercy.

  • Camilo Gerardo

    mesa didn’t K, Drink! (drink 2 per K normally)

  • Matt ACTY/BBD

    Will there ever be an outing in which Brackman doesn’t give up a run?

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Yes, July 31 was the last time.

    • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Side sessions?

      • Chaz


        • SS

          Still has walks in the side sessions though.

      • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

        He had one outing where he allowed a run during his warm-up pitches. After hitting an opposing batter in the on-deck circle, this guy came around to score on three consecutive wild pitches.

  • JMK

    If one were to look back on DOtF this season, they might conclude that Noah has been resurrected and the Flood is taking place again. How many rain outs have there been? 40? 50?

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Since I am bored and having nothing else to do…

      SWB: 21 (including wet grounds)
      TRN: 13
      TAM: 23 (including a lightning day)
      CSC: 4
      STI: 7

      78 total…

      • JMK

        Holy shit. Thanks, Johan. You deserve a beer for all that hard work!

        • NYQ

          They should all build DOMES!!!!!

      • Jeffrey

        Wow. Well it did rain almost the whole month of June in the Northeast.

        Now I wonder how many double headers these rain outs led to?

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    ZK tired arm or…?

  • Doug

    no wild pitches for brack? victory!

    • Jeffrey

      Is there a stat that measures a pitcher’s wildness? Or can we just say ((WP+HBP+BB-IBB)/IP)*9 would be an effective tool? Ie mistakes around plate per 9 IP.

      WILD Scores for Low A starters:
      David Phelps 2.72
      Manny Banuelos 4.32
      Andrew Brackman 10.43
      Brett Marshall 5.57

      Obviously Brackman’s is the highest, but if he can harness his stuff just enough he can have success. Keep in mind Burnett’s is 5.92 and Joba’s is 5.33. Sabathia’s is a nice 2.77.

      • Doug

        nice stat. i like it.

        yeah, off the top of my head, would think anything 4ish or lower would be a good figure. if higher, need to strike out a lots of guys to overcome. and guys like aj and joba certainly qualify.

  • Enrique Wilson 4 Ever

    kevin’s blog has some new demolition photos of yankee stadium:

  • Jon G

    I’m starting to wonder if Humberto gets the Sept call-up again.

    At this point I’d much rather see what he can do than see Albalala and Edwar, who we know what they can’t do.

    I’m also psyched to see Melancon back up.

    Who else gets the Sept call up?

    Do we get an Ajax visit after the International League playoffs?
    Any chance of a De La Rosa or Zmac? I’m guessing no…

    We’re 10 days away from starting to find out

    • Jon G

      Maybe Dunn?

    • martin

      De la Rosa is on the 40 man roster, so we will see him.

    • Doug

      would love to see a guy like De Caster given a shot. nice .308/.371/.440 slash line and only 24 Ks in 159 ABs

  • Michael

    Doubt DeLaRosa will be up as he just isn’t ready and NYY have plenty of arms to call up to throw garbage innings in September. I’d expect a few call ups at a time.
    Sept 1: 2 out of Melancon, Albaladejo and Ramirez, Pena
    Early Sept: Gardner
    End of Scranton Playoffs: Miranda, maybe Austin Jackson for a cameo as he needs to be on the 40-man roster anyway for this year’s rule 5 and NYY can place Kevin Cash on the 60-day DL. If NYY want to bring up the “kitchen sink” they could do Claggett and Dunn. I would imagine that this is too many to sit in the dugout.

  • Kyle

    Charleston manager Torre Tyson’s review of Melky Mesa: “Everybody always talks about him. He’s a complete tool package.

    Sounds like an interesting guy that Melky Mesa….

    • Kyle

      Damn, bold comment fail

    • Doug

      would be happier about it came from someone other than his own manager

  • Doug

    how many ABs do you need to qualify for the batting title in AAA? russo’s .335 would place him 2nd right now, but doesn’t appear to have enough ABs.
