Suttle homers twice as Banuelos gets rocked

2011 Draft: Yankees take Dante Bichette Jr. with 51st overall pick

Austin Romine was unsurprisingly placed on the disabled list today; he had missed a few days with a sore back and neck following a collision at the plate. Jason Place took his spot on the roster. Carlos Silva was also placed on the disabled list today, likely due to the stiff shoulder that forced him to miss yesterday’s starter. P.J. Pilittere took his place on the roster, and Triple-A Scranton might need the extra catcher because Jesus Montero is battling an eye infection. Fun stuff.

We’re going to recapping the minor league action bullet point-style over the next few days because of the draft, just FYI. Let’s get into tonight’s action…

  • Triple-A Scranton lost. Jorge Vazquez hit his 19th homer and D.J. Mitchell uncharacteristically struck out ten in six innings. That’s pretty much it.
  • Double-A Trenton is still playing in extra innings. All you need to know is that Manny Banuelos got crushed: 4 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. Oh, and Corban Joseph homered. So did Bradley Suttle. Twice.
  • High-A Tampa won. Kelvin Castro and Zoilo Almonte both went deep. Sean Blackk threw six scoreless, a much needed solid start for him.
  • Low-A Charleston lost. Slade Heathcott had a hit and walk, but both J.R. Murphy and Gary Sanchez went hitless. Jose Ramirez had a strong start, throwing six scoreless.

    Banuelos must’ve been effected by the Yankees draft pick tonight.

    That explains why Jesus hasn’t been hitting well by his insanely high standards

    Banuelos getting rocked was bound to happen. Now lets see how he responds next time out.

    Manny didnt bring his best stuff today I guess. But I believe it’s the first time he’s gotten lit up all year so I’m willing to give him a free pass. And is it reasonable to put some of the blame for Jesus Montero’s struggles at the plate on this eye infection? Probably not, but he’s still 0 for his last 8.

    Man, Corban Joseph is red hot right now.. that kid can hit, thats for sure, the yanks do have alot of tradable parts, and guys who fill out the rest of a TRADE, like Fillers if u will…

    What the heck ever happened to Caleb Cotham? Is he still recovering from his surgery?(what was it again, tommy john?), and what about Gavin Brooks?
