Hirsh flirts with a no-hitter in Scranton win

By

Apparently Dellin Betances has returned to the mound in Extended Spring Training, and was sitting 92-95 with half-decent control. If true, he should back in games by May. Also, Damon Sublett is on the disabled list with a thumb injury.

Triple-A Scranton (2-1 win over Louisville)
Kevin Russo, 3B: 0 for 3, 1 BB, 1 E (fielding)
Colin Curtis, RF & Juan Miranda, 1B: both 2 for 4 – Miranda hit a solo jack & scored another run
Eduardo Nunez, SS: 1 for 4
David Winfree, DH: 1 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K
Jesus Montero, C: 2 for 3, 1 BB – breaks out of a little 2 for 19 (.105) slump … he did allow two stolen bases though

Double-A Trenton (4-3 loss to New Hampshire in 10 innings)
Austin Krum, CF & Luis Nunez, SS: both 1 for 3, 1 BB – Krum scored a run … Nunez K’ed & got picked off third, which is inexcusable

Jack Rye, RF: 4 for 4, 3 R, 1 3B, 1 E (fielding) – helluva game
Jairo Heredia: 4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 3-4 GB/FB – it’s been anything but easy for his this year

    Any expectations for Z. Almonte and Grote?

  2. A.D. says:

    Nice start by Hirsh….Strasburg who???

  3. Salty Buggah says:

    Jason Hirsh got only 2 Ks, 3 BBs, and had a 1-1 GB to FB ratio yet he only he gave up 1 hit. I know where the Yanks BABIP luck went tonight…

  4. W.W.J.M.D. says:

    Will the day Romine gets called up to AAA, coincide with the day Montero is in the big leagues?

  5. Steve H says:

    Austin Romine, C: 2 for 3, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 PB – the walk was intentional

    teh fear?

    • Reggie C. says:

      I think the kid’s OPS’ing over a 1.00 these past 10 games. With David Adams cooling off, Romine has taken off on a run that’s sure to place him on next week’s BA’s top wkly performers list.

      A betances sighting! Brett Marshall should be pitching in EST too. Isnt that so, Mike?

  6. Is there any reason to get our hopes up for Dellin?

  7. Mark says:

    I thought Jason Hirsh was a guy made up by a caller on veal’s show :)

  8. Walter K says:

    I see where Andrew Brackman is on the disabled list (again). What happened? How long is expected to be out?

  9. Stu H says:

    What’s going on with Kelvin De Leon? Is he in extended spring training at the moment? Hurt?

  10. stuart says:

    nice clean game by the big club. jorge still does not know how to run the bases. That is unbeleivable……

  11. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Heh weren’t all of us under the impression Betances wouldn’t even pitch this year?

  12. Roger says:

    Jorge still does not know how to run the bases under the impression but they could have very well cut him.

  13. Jeffrey says:

    Correction on Betances. He was not sitting at 92-95 but it is said that they expect him to return to that velocity as he gets further away from the surgery.

    For all we know he was throwing in the 70′s, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves with him.

  14. coolerking101 says:

    What’s the word on Kelvin Perez? Seems to be smashing low A. 1.05 ERA and WHIP under 1.
