Wins at every level


Mikey O’Brien is done for the season with an injury described as “nothing serious.” An MRI will reveal the truth tomorrow.

  • Triple-A Scranton won. Jesus Montero picked up a pair of hits, including a three run homer. He also threw out a pair of basestealers. Eric Bruntlett also had three hits. The Ghost of Kei Igawa allowed two runs and struck out five in 6.2 innings of work.
  • Double-A Trenton won. Both Dan Brewer and Austin Romine had a pair of base knocks, with one of Romine’s being a long ball. Al Aceves allowed a solo homer in a rehab start, going 2.1 innings. Hector Noesi followed him with six scoreless innings, striking out six and allowing just four hits.
  • High-A Tampa won. Bradley Suttle‘s hot stretch continues, with three hits including a double. Melky Mesa failed to do anything productive in five trips to the plate. Graham Stoneburner struck out five in six scoreless innings.
  • Low-A Charleston won. Slade Heathcott drew a walk and J.R. Murphy doubled. Luke Murton went deep. Nothing exciting on the bump.
  • Short Season Staten Island won. Rob Segedin singled and walked while both Gary Sanchez and Cito Culver drew free passes of their own. Garrison Lassiter also walked twice, so apparently they were handing them out for free. Tommy Kahnle struck out three and walked one in a pair of scoreless innings.
  • Rookie GCL Yanks won. Mason Williams and Angelo Gumbs both went 0-for-4, but Ben Gamel picked up a pair of hits including a double. Ramon Flores singled and walked. Some guy named David Triplet made his pro debut, but he doesn’t appear to be anything special on the surface. He’s already 23, so he’s probably an undrafted free agent.

    He also threw out a pair of basestealers.


  2. I might be out of the loop on this, but is this the new format for the DOTF or is this just a temporary style change?

  3. Alex C says:

    He is on vacation (I think) and it will go back to normal Monday. Also I must have missed it but when did Feliz get promoted to Tampa?

  4. China Joe says:

    Nice start for Graham M. Stoneburner III. He was getting overshadowed a bit there at Tampa with the B-boys there, now he’s got the place all to himself (more or less)

  5. Reggie C. says:

    Any word on which affiliate Dan Burawa is going to be assigned? Burawa is supposed to be the most promising relief arm in the signed class. Shouldn’t Burawa be headed to NYPL?

  6. Sleepykarl says:

    Feliz hit his first HR in Tampa. Nice to see from an 18 year old 2nd baseman in high A.

  7. Joe says:

    No mention of Banuelos and Betances…

  8. Sleepykarl says:

    This is beautiful.
    “Benjamin (Cape Cod, Massachusetts): I’m getting worried, please tell me my Sox still have a better farm system than those boys in Pinstripes.

    Kevin Goldstein: I love how worked up Sox and Yankees fans get worked up about the other team’s SYSTEM. For now: Advantage Yankees, sorry.”

  9. Bobby's World says:

    With Betances and Brackman that some front for a pick up game of basketball.

  10. larryf says:

    Happy for Jesus. He has a really good arm….

  11. Brian in NH says:

    Cito still hitless at Staten Island

  12. Captain Bawls says:

    Montero has a .209 ISO. I like it.
