Maxwell walks off in Scranton win

Game 19 Spillover Thread
Hughes headed for MRI tomorrow

Jesus Montero was still limping around the clubhouse today after yesterday’s foul ball to the cup, and in fact the team is sending him for an MRI just to be sure everything’s okay. Poor guy. The good news is that he coached first base for a few innings today, so he’s not completely immobile. The team activated P.J. Pilittere off the disabled list to serve as an extra catcher for now. Dan Brewer was sent to Double-A in a corresponding move, and I hope he actually gets some playing time.

Triple-A Scranton (2-1 win over Syracuse in 13 innings, walk-off style)
Greg Golson, RF: 0 for 6 – ouch, that’ll put a dent in the ol’ batting average … he did throw a runner out at the plate though
Kevin Russo, 2B-3B: 1 for 5, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
Jorge Vazquez, 1B: 1 for 6, 4 K – 19 whiffs in 18 games

Brandon Laird, 3B: 1 for 3, 1 2B, 1 BB – was lifted for a pinch-runner in the extra innings, didn’t work

David Phelps, RHP: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1 HB, 2-7 GB/FB – 65 of 99 pitches were strikes … picked a runner off first … each start has gotten progressively better, which isn’t surprising at all
Eric Wordekemper, RHP: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1-1 GB/FB – half of his 18 pitches were strikes
Andy Sisco, LHP: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – half of his ten pitches were strikes

Addison Maruszak, 1B: 2 for 4, 1 BB
Ray Kruml, RF: 3 for 4, 3 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB
Manny Banuelos, LHP: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 2 HB, 3-2 GB/FB – 47 of 73 pitches were strikes (64.4%) … little wild, but it happens
Cory Arbiso, RHP: 1 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1-1 GB/FB – 16 of 26 pitches were strikes (61.5%)
Naoya Okamoto, LHP: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1-2 GB/FB – 21 of 39 pitches were strikes (53.8%) … allowed both inherited runners to score

Rob Segedin, LF: 0 for 4
Ramon Flores, 1B: 2 for 4, 1 R
The Kelvins: both 1 for 4, 1 R, 2 K - Castro homered, drove in three, and committed a fielding error
Jose Mojica, SS: 1 for 3
Mikey O’Brien, RHP: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HB, 4-5 GB/FB – 26-4 K/BB ratio in 21.2 IP
Wilton Rodriguez, RHP: 2 IP, zeroes, 2 K, 1 HB, 2-1 GB/FB – another scoreless inning or two, and his ERA should be under 5.00
Dan Burawa, RHP: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 3-2 GB/FB

Hughes headed for MRI tomorrow
  • pat

    Kontos wants in.

  • Gonzo

    Golson for the rotation!

    • Monteroisdinero

      He’s got a cannon.

      • Gonzo

        I want him clocked from the mound.

    • Sabermetrically Challenged

      that’s actually not a half bad idea considering he can’t hit and he throws like a young gooden

  • Reggie C.

    Banuelos going 5 innings from here on out. I like that he’s still K’d 5. One out too short for my liking, but hey, Banuelos has yet to turn in a clunker.

    • Brian in NH

      No complaints about ManBan at this point. Still stretching out from Spring training + blisters. Love the K’s. Control will come with more experience (hopefully)

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Yet Banuelos FIP goes down. I’ll take it.

  • Camilo Gerardo

    wishes this year was contract year for Hanram and Jeter, just saying

  • jeety

    Slade was actually 2 for with a double and a k

  • jeety

    Slade was actually 2 for 4 with a double and a k

      true dat

  • Esteban

    Wordekemper for Josh Johnson.

  • Rookie

    Kontos’ and Dickerson’s statistics are intriguing — and much more impressive than their reputations.

  • CS Yankee

    ManBan seems to be on schedule to go 6 IP per outing come 1st of June in SWB, followed by 7 IP per start after the All-Star break for the majors.

    I just hope it isn’t for Seattle.

    If Man Ban goes to 140 IP this year, and he is one of the 5 best pitchers in the Yankee organization coming out of spring training in 2012, do you take him north knowing that:

    1. You’ll have to pitch him 170 innings or less (INCLUDING playoffs), or else (see Hughes, Phil); and
    2. You can’t jerk him around too much in order to protect his innings count, or else (see Chamberlain, Joba).

    Maybe the wisest course of action is just to leave him in the minors in 2012 so that when he comes up in 2013, he can just pitch, innings cap free?

    It seems stupid to not carry him north if he is one of the five best pitchers on the team coming out of spring training in 2012, but the Joba and Hughes Experiences have been…unsettling.

    • CS Yankee

      Understand the concerns and know whatever they do there is risk.

      maybe…
      April 3-4 starts @ 4IP per in AA (16 IP YTD)
      May 5 starts @ 5IP per still in AA (41 IP YTD)
      June 5 starts @ 6 IP per in AAA (71 IP YTD)
      July 5 starts @ 6 IP per in MLB (101 IP YTD)
      August 5 starts @ 6 IP in MLB (131 YTD)
      September 5 starts @ 7 IP in MLB (166 IP YTD)

      They can keep him under 170 while stretching him out slowly, with this pen (not so far, but still) they should support him well and help keep his innings per start down.

    Sanchez and Segedin go hitless when Cashman shows up. Another reason to fire Cashman!

    (obvious sarcasm by the way)

    • CS Yankee

      I’m sure he went to see “the Blade” & Sanchez.
