Two losses and a lot of rain


D.J. Mitchell makes an appearance in the In The Team Photo section of this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. They say he “doesn’t get as much attention as some of his teammates, but his feel for pitching and changeup mean he’ll probably be a useful middle reliever someday.”

Triple-A Scranton, High-A Tampa, and Short Season Staten Island were all rained out. The Rookie GCL Yankees had their game suspended due to rain in the third inning. Here’s that box score. All of these games will be made up a later date, some tomorrow, some at another point in the future.

  1. I’m setting the Over/Under on a Ramon Flores promotion at 3 weeks. What do you take?

  2. CC's third leg says:

    Kanhle becoming the new D-Rob and Sanchez defensively sucks bawls. Look at all these past bawls

  3. Xstar7 says:

    worst DOTF ever

    • Ted Nelson says:

      Short, but not unsweetened. Pitchers got roughed up at all 3 levels, but hitting prospects did well basically across the board.

  4. Esteban says:

    So is Manny B bored at Double A? Considering his control issues at AA, it’s probably a good thing the Yankees didn’t rush him to the majors like some people wanted.

  5. MONSTERofMD says:

    Nice guy Ortiz flipping out about being pitched inside again. What a douche. Watch the Player’s Union Rep show up for his press conference tomorrow.

    • Adam B says:

      Gregg handled it poorly, but it is every pitchers right to throw inside and Ortiz doesn’t understand that

  7. BigTimeBartolo says:

    Mike, what’s your take on Claudio Custodio? Thanks

    • Mike Axisa says:

      I don’t know anything about the kid. It’s tough to find reliable info on these DSL/GCL guys.I don’t know anything about the kid. It’s tough to find reliable info on these DSL/GCL guys.

    • kenthadley says:

      he started out very hot in DSL last year, then cooled down significantly. If he can maintain it for the entire year, he might be something.

  8. Uke says:

    Big sloppy can’t fight for shit hahaha

  9. JohnnyC says:

    Mitchell doesn’t get as much attention as his teammmates? From whom? You mean from Baseball America? The magazine in which that comment is printed?

  10. CMP says:

    I think the Banuelos watch should be changed to the Betances watch. He’s had the better season.

  11. White Al Sharpton says:

    Who is Tyler Austin and does he have a load of potential? I’ve never heard of him until a couple days ago

    • YankeeGrunt says:

      He’s a solid prospect. He was a thirteenth rounder last year and had a rep for having plus plus power, as much raw power as anyone we had drafted in several years – Bichette and James from this year are comparable. Looking like he’s having a breakout season this year, showcasing a little bit of power, great BA, a little bit of speed, four walks is on the low side but its a very small sample size (so is all of it, for that matter). I don’t know what the bonus was on him but he’s still just 19. He’s versatile, having played both corner IF spots this year, but with a little bit of speed a corner OF spot could be in his future.

  12. icebird753 says:

    Is Tyler Austin a good prospect? Haven’t heard of him

  13. Pounder says:

    Sanchez is greasing the skids for a Montero trade,perhaps to the Cubs……..ummm.
