Rafael Soriano, RHP: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2-0 GB/FB – he was scheduled for 20 pitches or so … gave up a solo homer to the league leader in homers, but don’t worry too much about the results, it’s his first rehab appearance

Bryan Mitchell, RHP: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 2 WP, 1 HB, 6-3 GB/FB – 29 K in 25.1 IP, but also 19 BB

Short Season Staten Island Game Two (8-6 win over Hudson Valley in eight innings)

Tyler Austin, 3B-1B: 0 for 4, 2 K
Reymond Nunez, 1B: 2 for 4, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K - capped off a four-run seventh inning comeback with a two-run game tying single
Mason Williams, PR-3B: 0 for 0 – yeah, he played third base for two innings … didn’t have to make a play in the field though … I wonder why they didn’t bring Casey Stevenson in off the bench, seems kinda dangerous to play him out of position, no? short hop could come up and catch him in the face or something
Shane Brown, LF, Ali Castillo, 2B & Nick McCoy, C: all 2 for 4 – Castillo doubled, scored a run, and whiffed … McCoy committed a throwing error and also picked a runner off third with a snap throw

Fred Lewis, LHP: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 2-1 GB/FB

Rookie GCL Yanks (8-5 win over GCL Phillies)
Claudio Custodio, SS: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 SB – eight walks in 16 games is quite a bit at this level, these kids usually swing at everything
Ravel Santana, CF: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB
David Adams, 2B: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 CS – well, at least he’s crushing the rehab

    I’m beginning to suspect that Adams’ rehab is actually a cloaked demotion.

    I’m pretty nuts, though.

  2. Brian S. says:

    Call up Montero.

  3. mbonzo says:

    Guys from the last 2 draft classes are having some real nice seasons.

  4. Brandon says:

    Cue the Montero has been traded since he didnt play tonight talk.

  5. Joe says:

    When does the DSL start? Anyone to look forward to?

  6. vin says:

    Seriously, what the hell are they waiting for with David Adams? He’s got to be physically healthy enough by now. Maybe they don’t want to mess with CoJo in AA, and want to be confident he can make the jump to AAA?

  7. DERP says:

    Does anyone know why Justin James plays so infrequently?

  8. CP says:

    They’ve updated the recap so it makes more sense:

    Ali Castillo singles on a ground ball to third baseman Leonardo Reginatto. Throwing error by third baseman Leonardo Reginatto. Casey Stevenson out at home on the throw, right fielder Chris Winder to pitcher Charlie Cononie to catcher Matt Rice. Ali Castillo to 3rd on the throw.

  9. Tim says:

    Re Ali Castillo strange play. Sounds like with a runner on first, Castillo hit a grounder to 3rd. 3rd baseman throws the ball into right field (trying to turn 2). Runner from first now heads to third, (Castillo to 2nd). Right fielder tries to play for the out at third and makes a bad throw. The pitcher backs the play up and is able to get the ball to the plate in time to retire the runner. (Castillo to 3rd)

      Almost right – was at game, 3rd baseman made wild throw past 1st baseman – picked up by rightfielder who threw home as Stevenson stopped at third and Casstillo at second. Throw home got past catcher and Stevenson tried to score but was thrown out pitcher to catcher. Castillo advanced to third on throwing error by rightfielder.

      Agree about Brett Gerritse – have seen him pitch twice in relief and he was basically lights out, pitching much better than the starting pitchers.

      Cito Culver looks better and better in the field and at the bat – doubled to wall in left-center batting right-handed and tripled to right batting left-handed in second game.

      Mason Williams didn’t have a good day at the bat but he is hitting .361 – he did make a nice catch in first game. Shane Brown
      continues to hit at a rediculous .446 clip.

      Don’t know much about the lefty reliever Vidal Nuno, but after giving up a double to the first batter he faced (scoring the two runners that Bryan Mitchell had walked – walks kill – otherwise Mitchell was quite good), he retired the last 7 batters he faced, including the last 5 on strikes. The scorecard states he was a free agent signing and that he played on the Lake County Captains (?!) in 2010.

  12. Tim says:

    On the Ali Castillo strange play. Sounds like with a runner on first, he hit a grounder to 3rd. 3rd baseman throws the ball into right field. Runner from first now heads to third.

  13. Tim says:

    Why will it not let me comment?

  14. CMP says:

    I hope Stoneburner finishes strong because this season has been pretty much a washout for him so far.

  15. Tim says:

    Sorry about the multiple posts. It was giving me an error message that said it was unable to post. I kept trying to figure out what the problem was, but apparently the error message was in error.

  16. Thomas Cassidy says:

    Damn it, Mason Williams! He’s the guy I always look forward to on DOTF. He’s failed me tonight.

  17. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    D-Bich, my man!

  18. Will (the other one) says:

    Seems kinda dangerous to play [Mason Williams] out of position, no?

    Not if the Rockies have made it clear they want “third baseman” Mason Williams as the centerpiece of any prospective Ubaldo deal.
