Noesi roughed up in winter ball debut

By

The 2011 MiLBY Awards are out, and you can vote for the various categories by clicking the link and sorting through the tabs. A few Yankees farmhands are up for awards, including Mason Williams (Best Short Season Hitter), Ryan Flannery (Best High-A Reliever), Branden Pinder (Best Short Season Reliever), and Abe Almonte (Best High-A Game). Voting ends tomorrow.

In other news, Marty Caswell reports that Triple-A Scranton hitting coach Butch Wynegar interviewed for the Padres vacant hitting coach position today. Wynegar has been coaching Yankees minor leagues since 2008, I believe.

AzFL Phoenix Desert Dogs (11-10 loss to Scottsdale in ten innings) Tuesday’s game
Corban Joseph, 2B: 3 for 6, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 E (throwing, missed catch) – three errors in nine games, a Nunezian pace
Rob Segedin, LF: 0 for 4, 1 R, 2 BB, 2 K
Dan Burawa, RHP: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HB, 1-0 GB/FB – 26 of 47 pitches were strikes (55.3%)
Preston Claiborne, RHP: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 2-0 GB/FB – ten of 17 pitches were strikes (58.8%)

DWL Licey (9-4 loss to Toros) Tuesday’s game
Hector Noesi, RHP: 1.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3-1 GB/FB – he’s on a strict pitch count while pitching out of Licey’s rotation … hopefully he’s just shaking off some rust after not pitching for about three weeks … I usually update all the Caribbean leagues on Sundays, but Noesi’s important enough for mid-week updates whenever he starts

AzFL Phoenix Desert Dogs (6-3 loss to Peoria) Wednesday’s game
Rob Segedin, LF: 1 for 4, 1 K
Ronnie Mustelier, 3B: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B – broke up the no-hitter with a fifth inning single
David Phelps, RHP: 3.1 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 4-1 GB/FB – 49 of 75 pitches were strikes (65.3%) … the desert hasn’t been kind to him so far, but at least he got stretched out to 75 pitches this time
Chase Whitley, RHP: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1-1 GB/FB – 19 of 31 pitches were strikes (61.3%)

    anybody know what kind of attendance figures the latin american winter leagues play in front of…id assume something decent since they are so competitive

  2. Jesse says:

    Well, at least only one of the four runs he allowed were earned…

  3. Jesse says:

    And how come the box score from MLB didn’t include the pitch count?

    And Jorge Vazquez hit another game winning home run yesterday for a 3-2 win. .393/.452/.964/ 1.416 with 5hr and 10rbi in 7 games.
