Game 85: Hello, Seattle. We meet again
A-Rod, Andy keeping Yanks rolling

Make sure you scroll down for tonight’s game thread.

Triple-A Scranton (10-7 win over Buffalo)
Justin Christian, LF: 1 for 5, 1 R, 2 K
Reegie Corona, 2B: 2 for 5, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI – seven for his last 20 (.350)
Eduardo Nunez, SS: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 SB, 1 E (throwing) - just his third start at short in his last seven games … playing a lot of third base recently
Juan Miranda, DH & Jesus Montero, C: both 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Jorge Vazquez, 1B: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K
Chad Huffman, RF: 1 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K
Eric Bruntlett, 3B: 3 for 4, 3 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI – heh, maybe he wants Ramiro Pena‘s job
Greg Golson, CF: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K
Zach McAllister: 4 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 4-6 GB/FB – 47 of 71 pitches were strikes (66.2%) … 110 H allowed in 95 IP
Romulo Sanchez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3-1 GB/FB – 20 of 27 pitches were strikes (74.1%)
Boone Logan: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 4-2 GB/FB – 16 of his 27 pitches were strikes (59.3%)
Eric Wordekemper: 0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1 WP – just half of his 16 pitches were strikes … that’s going to kill his trade value
Jon Albaladejo: 1 IP, zeroes, 3-0 GB/FB – seven of his eight pitches were strikes

Double-A Trenton (3-2 loss to Akron in 10 innings, walk-off style)
Luis Nunez, SS: 3 for 4, 2 R, 1 3B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Justin Snyder, 2B & Jack Rye, LF: both 1 for 3, 1 K – Snyder walked twice, Rye once
Austin Romine, DH & Brandon Laird, 3B: both 0 for 5 – Romine K’ed twice, Laird thrice … the team has a long trip from Akron to Bowie (Maryland) tonight, and I suspect Romine won’t even bother making the trip … no point in having him make such a long bus trip when he needs to fly to Anaheim for the Futures Game at some point very soon
Dan Brewer, CF & Marcos Vechionacci, 1B: both 1 for 4 - Brewer walked & K’ed … Vech hit a solo homer & K’ed twice
Rene Rivera, C & Edwar Gonzalez, RF: both 0 for 4 – Edwar K’ed three times

Kevin Whelan: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 1 K, 1-2 GB/FB – Sam Elam-esque (you’ll see what I’m talking about in a bit)

High-A Tampa (7-5 loss to Daytona)
Ray Kruml, DH: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 K, 2 SB
Jose Pirela, SS & Melky Mesa, CF: both 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 K - Pirela drew a walk
Corban Joseph, 2B, Bradley Suttle, 3B, Zoilo Almonte, RF & Trent Lockwood, 1B: all 1 for 4 – Almonte drove in a run & K’ed twice … Lockwood doubled, scored a run & K’ed twice
Jose Gil, C: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Ramon Flores, LF: 2 for 4, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB – keeps bouncing between Tampa and Staten Island

Trenton Lare: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 3-4 GB/FB
Juan Marcano: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0-2 GB/FB – they really must like him to have him this high at age 19

J.R. Murphy, C, Kyle Higashioka, DH, Kelvin Castro, SS & Emerson Landoni, 3B: all 1 for 4 – Murphy K’ed … Higashioka drove in a run
Rob Lyerly, 1B: 2 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Ronny Marte: 3.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3 WP, 6-2 GB/FB – not sure why he started, it was supposed to be Sean Black’s turn … that’s odd
Dickie Marquez: 1.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 3-1 GB/FB – oof
Ben Watkins: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HB, 5-0 GB/FB

Manny Barreda: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1-5 GB/FB – allowed two of three inherited runners to score

Rookie GCL Yanks (10-7 win over GCL Phillies)

    Maquinito needs some Tony Peña catching instruction!

    “Juan Marcano: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0-2 GB/FB – they really must like him to have him this high at age 19″

    Andy In Sunny Daytona likes this guy I think.

    date brilla cadenita que tu mojo llega

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Yeah, I’m a sucker for lefty Dominicans. It’s kind of like being a sucker for carpenters from Nazareth about 2000 years ago.

      • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

        I mean former Dominican League players, not necessarily Dominicans.

      • Chip

        I really hope the nickname El Carpenito catches on. I’d love to hear about him nailing runners at second, hammering homeruns, framing pitches, ect. Of course I’m also hoping for the greatest homerun call of all time “And Jesus baptizes one to deep right! Wow, he sure used some fire on that one!”

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Eric Wordekemper: 0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1 WP – just half of his 16 pitches were strikes … that’s going to kill his trade value

    He has trade value? haha

    • Chip

      I’ve heard substantial rumors from unnamed sources that the Yankees are pondering over a Lee for Wordekemper and Mesa swap

  • http://yanksdraftsandprospects.blogspot.com/ Jake H

    I like Fu Lin. Frankie P had some high praise for him when he was at the Yankees Ext training.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUvg7Empjfg Captain Jack

    Higher OPS at the end of the year: Curtis Granderson or Reggie Jackson?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUvg7Empjfg Captain Jack

      Goddamnit, listening to Yankee game. Curtis Granderson or Jesus Montero?

      • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime-Jesus & Maquinito FTW

        Jesus.

      • Captain Bawls

        After the shitfest that was today, I needed this laugh. Cheers.

        • Chip

          It’s one more in the win column, we could have never won a game like this 2005-2008

  • feasor

    Love to see walks, but I don’t know how much stock I put in walks (by hitters) in rookie ball.

    • Brian in NH

      It may not mean as much in rookie ball, but its a good sign. Sure the pitchers all probably don’t have the kind of control you see in AA ball, but the fact he’s patient enough to lay off a lot of those pitches is encouraging.

      • http://soxandpinstripes.net Angelo

        De Leon is a good example. That guy just swings at everythig and look where its gotten to him.

  • Gonzo

    Where’s that Australian kid?

    • Slugger27

      graeme lloyd retired a long time ago

    • http://www.nomaas.org K.B.D.

      Kyle Perkins. Hes had 5 plate appearances for the GCL Yanks this year.

      • http://www.nomaas.org K.B.D.

        Oh, you meant “Where did he go?”. Sorry about that. Late night confusion.

        • Gonzo

          Yeah, he didn’t even catch the last time Gary Sanchez took a day off from catching. Or did I miss something.

          • Chip

            Haven’t seen him, they might have sent him to ex spring training

            • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

              ExST is over, it ends right before the short season leagues begin. If a player doesn’t make a team out of ExST, he’s released. Perkins might be on the DL or on the inactive list for whatever reason.

              I wouldn”t worry about it, players go missing for weeks on end from the GCL team. I’ve given up trying to figure out where they go.

  • ChrisR

    Manny Barreda…he was drafted back in 2007 and he’s just now in Staten Island…what gives? It’s not like his numbers are horrible.

    • Mikebk

      elbow surgery in 08.

  • whyjwhy

    Haven’t seen this reported or posted anywhere but it seems like the Yanks signed a kid out of Colombia last week. Alfredo Castellon, 18 yr. old catcher. He’s supposed to report to DR to train and play in the DSL. Here’s the link (in Spanish):

  • currambayankees

    You know I wouldn’t put much thought into those passed balls of Sanchez that you keep harping on because the official scorers at these minor league complexes don’t always have the best vantage point to distinguish a passed ball from a wild pitch. I’d wait to see how he does as he gets to the higher levels.

  • Adam B

    the thing about lee is that hes gonna be 32 in a month… and they wanna give him a massive extension??
