Wang takes the loss in second Triple-A start

Game 21: No Roofs, No Turf
Cano's homer leads Yankees to come from behind win over Blue Jays

OF Thomas Neal has been placed on the DL after leaving last night’s game with a hamstring issue according to John Sadak. Neal was a candidate to replace Ben Francisco as the right-handed bench bat, but I don’t think a move was imminent. UTIL Kevin Mahoney has been bumped from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton to fill the roster spot.

Triple-A Scranton (4-1 loss to Columbus)

  • 2B Corban Joseph: 1-5, 2 K — wonder if he’ll see some more action at first base anytime soon
  • 3B David Adams: 2-3, 1 BB
  • LF Zoilo Almonte: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
  • C Austin Romine: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI — first homer of the year
  • CF Melky Mesa: 0-4 — no strikeouts is a moral win
  • RHP Chien-Ming Wang: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 13/4 GB/FB — 51 of 81 pitches were strikes (62%) … he was sitting 87-89 in the first inning and 85-87 in the fifth inning, so there’s still some work to be done in the arm strength department even though he’s never going to get it back to 93+ again

Low-A Charleston (7-0 loss to West Virginia)

  • CF Jake Cave: 1-4, 1 HBP
  • SS Cito Culver: 2-4, 2 K — five hits in his last 12 at-bats (.417)
  • DH Greg Bird: 1-4, 1 HBP
  • 3B Dante Bichette Jr.: 0-4, 1 K
  • LHP Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 1 Balk, 4/5 GB/FB — 55 of 74 pitches were strikes (74%) … has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his four starts

Both Double-A Trenton and High-A Tampa had scheduled off-days.

  • Bob Buttons

    A tad ironic how the first loss of Wang’s second stint with us is against the Clippers.

  • Barry

    Bout time Romine, slacker..

    • Tim

      His first XBH correct?

  • Coolerking101

    Adams wants back on the 40 man. Would love to see what he can do in the bigs.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      I’d like to see it as well.
      I think he may not be eligible until May 15, though.

    Camarena gave up 6 hits and 7 runs with – BB. That’s pretty interesting. Grand Slam and 2 solo shots? I guess he balked home a run at some point?

    • pat

      He did balk in a run, but the rest was wack.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      He gave up only one HR, and it was a solo shot.
      Other runs were a 2-run error, a 2-run triple, sac fly, and balk.
