Tampa kinda plays two, loses in 18 innings

By

Walt Ibarra has been placed on the DL and Jose Toussen was called up to take his roster spot. I haven’t updated the standings yet this season, so let’s do that now. The records shown do not include today’s games…

1B Steve Pearce: 1-4, 2 R, 1 K, 1 E (fielding)
DH Jack Cust: 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K – just seven hits in his last 36 at-bats (.194)
3B Brandon Laird & RF Cole Garner: both 0-3 — Laird drew a walk and committed a fielding error … Garner got hit by a pitch, struck out all three times and got picked off first

RF Abe Almonte: 3-6, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K, 2 SB — walk-off single
2B Corban Joseph: 2-5 — hopefully they get him to Triple-A soon, it’s a waste of time to keep him here for a third year

CF Melky Mesa: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 K
1B Luke Murton: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP

RHP Ryan Flannery: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 HB, 3/2 GB/FB — just 28 of 50 pitches were strikes (56.0%), though one of those walks was intentional
RHP Michael Dubee: 1 IP, zeroes, 2 K 0/1 GB/FB — nine of 11 pitches were strikes … seems like he pitches every day

High-A Tampa (7-6 loss to Bradenton in 18 (!) innings) 14-15 and 6.5 games back in FSL North Division … they faced an old friend, RHP Gerrit Cole

RHP Hector Rabago: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1/2 GB/FB — took the loss after a runner reached on an error and scored on a triple … not fair

Low-A Charleston (8-2 win over Delmarva) 19-8 and two games up in SAL Southern Division … Gary Sanchez didn’t play because it was a day game after a night game, but he apparently put on a show in batting practice
CF Mason Williams: 3-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SB, 1 CS — led the game off with a homer
2B Angelo Gumbs & LF Ben Gamel: both 0-4 — Gumbs struck out

  1. Mike E says:

    Cito Culver hasn’t played in a few days, any word on his status?

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

      His grandfather passed away. He tweeted today that he’s back in Charleston though.

  2. Tut says:

    Mustellier promoted to Scranton?

  3. Rick says:

    I love mason. Our line up needs another 300 hitter bad. Can’t wait another 3 years.

  4. Carl LaFong says:

    What’s this world coming to; Ben Gamel w/out a hit or BB?

    Adam Miller w/two scoreless innings in relief but no K’s. He’s my longshot pitcher of the year, but I’d still have started his year off at Trenton until he found his rhythm & to take a little pressure of him so he doesn’t try too hard too soon & get himself re-injured.

    Every time I think Laird’s starting to get on a roll he comes back w/an 0-fer. Still think the dude will hit.

    Nice to see Tommy Kahnle off the d/l; Tampa must have used all their pitchers today.

  5. Reggie C. says:

    I wish I could just fast forward the Charleston season another 40 games or so & see how many times Tyler Austin has left the yard by then.

    Any word on Campos?

  6. nick says:

    Can somebody tell me what happened to manny delcarmen? did he get hurt?

  7. Slugger27 says:

    i knew mason was killin it across the board, but 4 Ks in 114 PAs is fuckin impressive.

    • Ahinds says:

      right. I seriously asked why the Yankees were not bringing mason.w up last week and a bunch of RAB experts called me stupid more or less but it appears his hit tool is the real deal.

      I’m not a scout and I don’t know how he handles off speed stuff but I would bet my next pay check that he could do .270/.330/.350 right now in the show.

      this is obviously just me romanticizing. but I’m a fan, I get to act like this

  8. infernoscurse says:

    am i the only one who has no idea about this tyson blaser fellow, to think i religiously check the minors stats every night here and had never noticed the guy

  9. Derrick says:

    Want miss Cleo’s number. This thing looks like bullshit.

  10. Joe says:

    Hey Mike,
    Any word on Diego Moreno or Cayones (the haul we pulled in for AJ). I thought Cayones may start in short season ball but Diego already made it to Double A, I believe. Is he hurt or just not worth a roster spot.
    I secretly hoped one of them would show us something this year but it appears they are just org players.
    Any update/thoughts?

  11. Jeb says:

    Assuming they’re ready and continue to perform well (by no means a given in either case), I wouldn’t mind seeing Austin and Williams getting promoted to High A later in the season. Austin would have an opportunity to get some more reps at 3B (might be a good idea based on K Law’s opinion) and getting Gumbs into CF where his speed come really play up.

    • Ted Nelson says:

      I think Austin and Williams will probably be promoted if they keep it up, but I doubt Gumbs moves off 2B this early.

  12. Leg-End says:

    I love looking out for Montgomery’s line, does he ever not strike anyone out?

  13. CS Yankee says:

    The Ronnie Mustelier promotion at first didn’t look like anything special since he is 27, etc.

    However, with him being a defector and just playing a couple in the minors, it seems he could be the exception to the “rule’ and be considered a legit prospect?
