    nice to see Murphy show some power

  2. Angelo says:

    Camarena and Bird playing pretty well in a small sample size. Nice to see nonetheless.

  3. Bo Knows says:

    Tyler Austin wants to get to NY asap, he honestly should be sent to Trenton to start next

  4. Bob Buttons the Cat says:

    Am I wrong or is this the third or fourth time I saw “faced a rehabbing Matsuzaka” in the minor league recaps this year? Could have swear I saw notes of him rehabbing back in late June.

  5. Robert says:

    Yankees only team in Major Leagues with out one rookie at bat this season. So sad. My Question is who will get that 1st rookie at bat when the rosters expand on Sept 1 ?????

    • 28 this year says:

      I dont think any rookies will be called up right on September 1st but after the minor league season is over, we may see CoJo or David Adams or someone like that get their rookie at bat.

    • Angelo says:

      CoJo, Mustelier, maybe Adams and Mesa. Those are my guesses.

    • All Praise Be To Mo says:

      Why is that sad? That means we’ve kept people healthy this year and haven’t needed to call up any young kids. Only rookie that would have gotten ab’s this year would have been Montero and he’s been horrible for the M’s.
      Would we all love to have a Mike Trout or Bryce Harper, of course, but the Yanks being the great team they are never have a shot at talents like them.

      • Samuel says:

        Trout was picked 25th overall in the 2009 draft, the spot the Yankees were supposed to have picked, but the Yankees lost that pick to the Angels when they signed Mark Teixeira as a free agent.

        If the Yankees did draft Trout in that spot, no way he would be playing in the majors right now for them. Trout would still be in the minors while Andruw Jones still received Trout’s plate appearances.

        That is just how the Yankees work.

  6. Genghis says:

    Yyyyeeeeiiiiii—YEICOK!!!!!!

  7. Wayne says:

    How is Hayden sharp doing? Any chance he pitches in staten island this year

    • JohnC says:

      He’s been kinda up and down so far. Couple of good outings, couple of mediocre ones. Camarena and Cote have been much more impressive
