By

Brandon Laird, 3B: 0 for 2, 1 K - left the game after fouling a ball off his ankle, and it doesn’t sound too good … neither Laird or the trainer was around after the game, and he’s already backed out of the Eastern League All Star Game, which is obviously a bad sign

J.B. Cox: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1-2 GB/FB – 27 H allowed in 16 IP … comeback’s not going to well

High-A Tampa (11-8 loss in 10 innings)
Ray Kruml, CF: 3 for 5, 3 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB – been caught just four times in 25 stolen base attempts (84% success rate)

Dellin Betances: 2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 3-0 GB/FB – first time he’s gotten knocked around since coming off the DL … this is a good thing, you want him to face adversity to see how he rebounds

Noel Castillo: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 2-1 GB/FB
Jon Ortiz: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2-4 GB/FB

John Van Benschoten: 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1-0 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston (3-2 win over Rome)
Kelvin Castro, SS & Neil Medchill, LF: both 0 for 4 - Castro K’ed & committed a fielding error
DeAngelo Mack, RF: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K - ten for his last 33 (.303)

J.R. Murphy, DH: 1 for 4, 1 RBI

Rob Lyerly, 1B: 2 for 4, 1 2B, 1 K - nine for his last 18 … when he gets hot, he really gets hot
Francisco Santana, CF: 1 for 3, 1 K – three a runner out at third … still no Slade Heathcott
Josh Romanski: 7.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 11-3 GB/FB – picked a runner off first … that’s domination homes … 29-5 K/BB ratio in his last 25 IP

Short Season Staten Island (6-5 loss to Batavia in 15 innings)

Shane Brown, 3B-2B: 0 for 4, 3 BB, 1 K
Luis Parache, SS: 1 for 6
Garrison Lassiter, DH: 0 for 1, 2 BB, 1 K – got ejected in the 7th, probably arguing balls and strikes

    So, um, should they promote Sanchez to SI?

  2. So, uh, when do we start to worry about Slade? Does Charleston not have a beat guy covering it?

    Also, “14 for his last 37 (.378), dropping his season AVG to .413″

    There is something wrong with that sentence ;)

  3. futureman says:

    You know that cat Sanchez is a bad mother

  4. Reggie C. says:

    Give Sanchez another 40 at-bats and see where he’s at. After 100 At-bats, if Sanchez is still sporting an OPS north of 1.00, how challenging could GCL pitching really be for Sanchez?

  5. phughesisgod says:

    LOL. Heres when you know you have been playing for too long. SI has already used 2 hitters as pitchers and one of them has already pitched 2 innings.

  6. YankeeGrunt says:

    Five strikeouts for De Leon…ouch!

  7. blah says:

    The box score says Vech was 3 for 3.

  8. Doug says:

    remind me not to ask mike if someone’s a legit ML prospect ever again. brought up sosa the other day and he’s 0-11 since.

  9. 28 in '10 says:

    Like the Other Jose Ramirez at the bottom, look at what the Other MC did today, he said, hoping not to be banned.

    Pitcher Change: Melvin Croussett replaces Victor Beriguete.
    Nelson Aguida reaches on fielding error by shortstop Jamiel Orozco.
    Dioni Dominguez walks. Nelson Aguida to 2nd.
    Gabriel Lino walks. Nelson Aguida to 3rd. Dioni Dominguez to 2nd.
    With Oswill Lartiguez batting, wild pitch by Melvin Croussett, Nelson Aguida scores. Dioni Dominguez scores. Gabriel Lino to 2nd. Missed catch error by pitcher Melvin Croussett.
    Oswill Lartiguez walks.
    Pitcher Change: Jose M. Ramirez replaces Melvin Croussett.

  10. ChrisR says:

    Slade has biceps tendinitis and will be out a few more days.

  11. Bobby's World says:

    Corban joseph didn’t play tonight for Tampa and earlier in the day Brandon laird went down hurt for Trenton.I don’t know i am just saying.I guess we will see,i don’t want to see a player get promoted because someone else got hurt.

  12. Brian in NH says:

    Kyle Higashioka, C: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – he doesn’t hit for average at all, but there’s definitely some pop in his bat

    Seems like anytime this kid gets a hit its always a 1-4 night for him.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

      My fondest hope is that he shows enough pop that we can use him as a trade chip, seems like he’s definitely an odd man out now with all the catching depth.

  13. Dave M says:

    Over the weekend they had Jesus fest in Vernon, CT. Not too far from my house. My kids asked what it was. I said it’s a celebration for Jesus Montero. Do you think I should tell them the truth?

  14. Joe says:

    Adam Warren to be promoted to Trenton via Josh Norria of the Trentonian.
