A-Rod returns, but Pettitte doesn't give Yankees a chance against White Sox

Short Season Staten Island is sending six players to the NY-Penn League All-Star Game: 1B Bubba Jones, IF Jose Rosario, 3B Eric Jagielo, OF Yeicok Calderon, RHP Rookie Davis and RHP Stefan Lopez. Congrats to all.

Triple-A Scranton, Double-A Trenton, and Short Season Staten Island all had scheduled off-days. How about that.

High-A Tampa (6-5 win over Fort Myers, walk-off style)

  • CF Mason Williams: 0-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SB
  • 2B Rob Refsnyder: 1-1, 1 R, 1 RBI, 3 BB, 2 SB — helluva night
  • LF Ben Gamel: 0-5, 2 K
  • 3B Peter O’Brien: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB — walk-off two-run dinger
  • RHP Jairo Heredia: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 7/2 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston (6-0 loss to Savannah)

  • 2B Angelo Gumbs: 1-4, 1 2B, 3 K — got picked off second
  • RHP Jose Campos: 2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 3/1 GB/FB — he came out of the bullpen in the eighth inning, which is kinda weird

  • SS Tyler Wade: 0-5, 1 K
  • 2B Gosuke Katoh: 1-4, 1 K
  • LF Dustin Fowler: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 RBI — was stuck in a 2-for-21 (.095) slump

    more fun than the game thread

  • Caballo Sin Nombre

    If Tyler Wade married Austin Aune, would their child be… Tyler Austin?

    • NYinTX

      I was actually in the Air Force with a guy named Austin Tyler. Was he from Texas? Nope, Arkansas.

      • Caballo Sin Nombre

        Surprised the Yankees didn’t sign him… or did they?

        dum dum DUM

        • NYinTX

          Well, he was always going to sick call for some malady or another so he’d fit right in.

    Campos out of the bullpen?

    This could be a fun thread…

  • YankeeGrunt

    I think you meant Tyler Wade.

    • IRememberCelerinoSanchez

      But how awesome would it be if Austin could play short?

  • Caballo Sin Nombre

    Bird, Fowler, Yeicok, Webb… these are poultry names.

  • Caballo Sin Nombre

    “Jake Cave” was 1920-era slang for a really fine vagina…

    • Gonzo

      I laughed good at this one.

    “sending six players to the NY-Penn League All-Star Game”

    SYSTEM SUCKS CASHMAN FAILED

  • YankeeFan

    I thought the reason why to bring in Gil Patterson was to change things up. Apparently they are still doing the same thing from the Nardi regime. Why bring Campos in out of the bullpen? Makes no sense. I really believe the talent is there for the system to thrive and produce ML players but the development has just been a complete lost in translation.

      If you were listening to the game, they are managing his innings since he’s pretty close to the target now.
