Jagielo goes deep in Staten Island loss

Saturday Night Open Thread
Yankees have no answer for Lackey, fall 6-1 to Red Sox

Triple-A Scranton (4-3 loss to Lehigh Valley in eleven innings)

  • C J.R. Murphy: 1-6, 3 K
  • CF Melky Mesa: 1-3, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 SB, 1 HBP — still mashin’
  • 2B David Adams: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 K
  • LF Ronnie Mustelier: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K
  • RHP Graham Stoneburner: 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 4/5 GB/FB — 41 of 62 pitches were strikes (66%) … rotation is pretty thin due to injuries and the David Huff call-up, so he’s back with the club
  • RHP David Herndon: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 4/0 GB/FB — 15 of 16 pitches were strikes … he’s thrown well following Tommy John surgery, have to think the Yankees will add him to the 40-man roster after the season to keep him around as an extra bullpen arm next year
  • LHP Cesar Cabral: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K — ten of 18 pitches were strikes (56%) … 21/4 K/BB in his last 16.2 innings … depending on the team’s plans for Boone Logan, Cabral could find himself back on the 40-man this winter
  • RHP Corey Patterson: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1/2 GB/FB — 11 of 16 pitches were strikes (69%) … he’s the third different position player to pitch in the system the last two days

Double-A Trenton (14-4 loss to New Hampshire)

  • CF Mason Williams: 0-5, 3 K
  • DH Ramon Flores: 0-5, 1 RBI — top two hitters went 0-for-10? rough
  • C Gary Sanchez: 1-3, 1 R, 1 K, 1 HBP
  • LF Ben Gamel: 1-4, 2 K
  • LHP Nik Turley: 3 IP, 5 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 5 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 1/4 GB/FB — only 39 of 85 pitches were strikes (46%) … safe to say he’s been a pretty big disappointment this year
  • RHP Zach Nuding: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 0/1 GB/FB — 20 of 36 pitches were strikes (56%)
  • RHP Tommy Kahnle: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1/1 GB/FB — 21 of 34 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • RHP Jose Gil: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 2/1 GB/FB — seven of eleven pitches were strikes … you know things are going bad when the backup catcher has pitch on back-to-back days

High-A Tampa Game One (10-8 loss to Lakeland) completion of the July 4th game, which was suspended due to rain after two whole batters

  • 2B Rob Refsnyder: 1-2, 2 R, 3 BB — nine walks and four strikeouts in his last ten games
  • 3B Peter O’Brien: 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 3 RBI, 1 K — had two hits in his previous 26 plate appearances combined (.077)
  • CF Taylor Dugas: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
  • RHP Branden Pinder: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 2 WP, 3/6 GB/FB

High-A Tampa Game Two was suspended due to darkness. They’ll make it up as part of a doubleheader at the end of the month.

Low-A Charleston (6-2 loss to Rome)

  • CF Jake Cave: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 K
  • 2B Angelo Gumbs, 1B Greg Bird & DH Dante Bichette Jr.: all 0-4 — Gumbs struck out once, Bird and DBJ thrice apiece
  • LF Ericson Leonora: 2-4, 2 R, 2 2B, 1 K, 1 E (fielding) — eight hits in his last 20 at-bats (.400) with six doubles
  • LHP Tyler Webb: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1/2 GB/FB

Short Season Staten Island (6-3 loss to Tri-City)

  • SS Abi Avelino: 1-4, 1 K
  • 3B Eric Jagielo: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 3 K — seven hits in his last 28 at-bats (.250) with five doubles and a homer, so the power’s there
  • CF Brandon Thomas: 1-3, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 E (fielding) — 23/4 K/BB in his last ten games
  • 1B Bubba Jones: 1-4, 1 K
  • RHP Rookie Davis: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 3/2 GB/FB
  • RHP Stefan Lopez: 2.1 IP, zeroes, 2 K, 2 WP, 2/3 GB/FB — 34/9 K/BB in 29.1 innings … it’ll be interesting to see if they fast-track last year’s 16th rounder now that he’s (presumably) healthy … he’s got a good arm but has been hampered by knee problems in recent years

Rookie GCL Yanks1 (10-3 loss to GCL Yanks2) two teams, one update

  • SS Thairo Estrada: 1-6
  • DH Luis Torrens: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 K — 13 hits in his last 37 at-bats (.351)
  • 3B Miguel Andujar: 1-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 K, 2 E (both fielding) — hitting streak is up to 13 games
  • LF Nathan Mikolas: 2-4, 3 R, 2 2B, 1 BB, 1 K
  • SS Tyler Wade: 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 K
  • 2B Gosuke Katoh: 1-5, 3 K
  • LF Dustin Fowler: 2-4, 1 K
  • 3B Chris Tamarez: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B
  • RF Austin Aune: 0-4, 2 K, 1 CS — 60 strikeouts (45.1%) and four walks (3.0%) in 133 plate appearances this year
  • RHP Angel Rincon: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 5/3 GB/FB

      Duece Jagielo!!!

  • 28 this year

    They don’t have lights in Tampa?

    • Caballo Sin Nombre

      They probably just saw a black guy in a hoodie, and decided to call it a night.

    • jimmy

      I was at this game. They were scheduled to start at 4, did not start to 6. It ended at 9. All the players walked off with the intentions of coming back out. They had no clue they were calling the second game. It made no sense. Should have said “called game due to horrible lakeland planning”

  • vicki

    jagged it.

  • Cesar “Stairs” Cabral

    Estoy back, beetches.

    Big ups to my ese, Richard Leo.

    • Richard Leo

      you call me?

  • Manny’s BanWagon

    How the heck is Aune this bad.

    45% K rate is just a total embarrassment

    • https://twitter.com/AngeloInNY Angelo

      In the GCL. That’s crazy bad.

    • Gonzo

      Pro ball is hard.

      • Manny’s BanWagon

        For a 2nd round draft pick to practically wash out of the GCL?

        Someone fucked up that pick royally.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          Pretty sure he wasn’t considered an overreach either.

    • Stratocaster

      Send him down to….. High School?

  • your mom

    Overall, a pretty shitty night DOTF.

  • Wayne

    They play no defense behind rookie davis. . 2016 mlb rotation Jose Ramirez, Rafael Depaula, Rookie Davis, Brady Lail (and Simon De La Rosa who I think will be a steal for us )

    • Travis L.

      Who is Simon De La Rosa? I must have missed that…is he playing in our MiLB system already?

      • Robinson Tilapia

        He sung lead for Duran Duran.

        • Travis L.

          Its late…I’m clueless.

          • Robinson Tilapia

            That’s ok. I need the occasional reminded that I’m pushing 40 anyway.

            • Robinson Tilapia


      • Richard Leo

        tell us more about Simon De La Rosa

        • Manny’s BanWagon

          I’ve heard he’s hungry like a wolf.

          • Robinson Tilapia

            His name is Rio and he dances in the sand

      • vicki

        from 13 february: “The Yankees used two of their other exemptions to sign 19-year-old Dominican right-hander Simon DeLaRosa ($50k) and 16-year-old Venezuelan shortstop Thairo Estrada ($49k). DeLaRosa pitches in the low-to-mid-90s with a promising curveball while Estrada has a line drive swing and fast-twitch athleticism.”


        i can’t see getting excited over a guy after 41.1ip in the dominican summer league; but you go, wayne.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Smokin’ some shit, son.

    • W.B. Mason Williams

      It’s too bad Pineda and Banuelos, who have more upside than anyone else on this list (with De Paula potentially matching) are out of the org by then.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Sabathia will be in the final year of his contract. Not sure if Nova will be done with his arb years by then. The team will also pick up at least one other guy from outside the org before 2016.

        Wouldn’t it be nice to see ManBan at the front of the rotation after all this?

    • https://twitter.com/AngeloInNY Angelo

      Um…you can dream.

    • John

      Nova is not a free agent until 2017, same with CC.

  • Travis L.

    I know Torrens is the “better” prospect by age, but Alvaro Noriega is only a year or two older and has far better numbers. What is his scouting report? Will he stay at catcher?

    • https://twitter.com/AngeloInNY Angelo

      He has half the at-bats (78) that Torrens has. He’ll be 19 later this year. I won’t say he’s not a prospect, but if you’re not getting at bats in the lowest level of the minors, you probably don’t have much talent.

  • Cool Lester Smooth

    How has Turley been a “pretty big disappointment?” He’s maintained his Ks, even though the walks bumped up, and he’s got a high 3s ERA and FIP in AA before tonight.

  • Sam

    Why isn’t Zachary Nuding starting anymore I was hoping he would w like the next josh Johnson or Matt Latos. Also here’s a recommendation for Nik Turley start throwing more two seamers and during the offseason develop a big curve keep your slider and get either a cutter or sinker to go with a power circle change do this to not become a reliever.

    • Richard Leo

      maybe just control his innings?

    • https://twitter.com/AngeloInNY Angelo

      You had very high expectations and hopes for Nuding. He’s not even in the same universe as those guys.

      • YankeeGrunt

        This thread is blessed with two trolls rather than the usual one.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          Every DOTF is blessed with at least a few guys anointing some guy in the DSL the savior while predicting that Brian Cashman will cause his arm to disattach from his body before it happens.

  • Old Kinderhook

    No love (or even a mention) for Kenedy Agramonte at 6-0 with a WHIP under 1? Is it because he’s only 5’10”? Does anybody have a scouting report on him?

  • RkyMtnYank

    The way Cabral is pitching seems like he would be a very useful September call up. It’s not like there aren’t wasted roster spots on the 25 man roster right now even.

    • Cesar “Stairs” Cabral

      Muchas gracias. Ten bitches for RkyMtnYank.

      RIP Wayne. That dude crazy.

  • nycsportzfan

    Mikolas seems to be putting together more solid games lately, no?
