Mustelier hurt, Betances dominates in AAA loss

By

RHP Jose Ramirez was bumped up to Triple-A Scranton, reports Josh Norris. Pitching coordinator Gil Patterson confirmed it is just a one-start thing though, they needed a starter after RHP Chris Bootcheck was called up the big leagues.

Triple-A Scranton (4-1 loss to Lehigh Valley)

  • LF Ronnie Mustelier: 0-1 — left the game with “midsection tightness” in the third … no idea what happened, but the guy has such bad luck, just when it looks like he could get called up, he gets hurt again … same thing happened at the end of Spring Training
  • CF Zoilo Almonte: 1-3, 1 BB
  • C J.R. Murphy: 0-4, 1 K — allowed four stolen bases in five attempts as well
  • DH Josh Bell: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB
  • RHP Jose Ramirez: 4 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 2/1 GB/FB — 46 of 78 pitches were strikes (59%), and he ran his fastball as high as 97 … not too bad for a late-notice spot start/debut at Triple-A
  • RHP Dellin Betances: 2 IP, zeroes, 4 K, 1/0 GB/FB — 19 of 26 pitches were strikes (73%), and he was sitting 93-95 and touching 98 … 22/6 K/BB in 18.2 innings as a reliever

Double-A Trenton (8-4 loss to Altoona)

  • LF Ramon Flores: 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – threw runners out at second and third
  • CF Slade Heathcott: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 CS
  • RF Tyler Austin: 2-5, 1 R, 1 K — 11-for-26 (.423) during his six-game hitting streak
  • 1B Kyle Roller: 3-4, 1 R, 1 2B — came into this game hitting .274/.363/.471 on the year
  • LHP Nik Turley: 5 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 2 HB, 6/0 GB/FB — 63 of 105 pitches were strikes (60%), and he picked a runner off first … up to a 4.90 ERA on the season
  • RHP Danny Burawa: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 2/0 GB/FB — only 11 of 24 pitches were strikes (46%) … 34/26 K/BB in 30.1 innings
  • LHP Cesar Cabral: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1/1 GB/FB – only 16 of 35 pitches were strikes (46%) … in case you missed it earlier, he has been outrighted off the 40-man roster … that means he cleared waivers and is officially Yankees property with no strings attached, the Rule 5 Draft rules no longer apply

High-A Tampa is off until Monday for the All-Star break. The actual All-Star Game will be played tomorrow. C Gary Sanchez and RHP Shane Greene are their only representatives.

Low-A Charleston (4-1 loss to Augusta)

  • CF Jake Cave: 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
  • SS Cito Culver: 1-5, 2 K
  • DH Greg Bird: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB – believe it or not, that’s his first walk in seven games
  • C Peter O’Brien: 1-4, 1 K
  • 3B Dante Bichette Jr.: 0-3, 1 K, 1 HBP — six hits in his last 51 at-bats (.118)
  • RHP Jose Campos: 4 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 5/2 GB/FB — 42 of 59 pitches were strikes (71%) … have to say, he’s been pretty underwhelming this year

    It’s cool, Ronnie just cooked up some diarrhea and had to step out. He’ll be halling our fame by next week.

    They need to get Mustelier away from Minor League fields. That’s why he keeps getting hurt…

    Between a flailing big league club and an underwhelming DotF report nightly, this has really been an uninspired season
