DotF: Sanchez’s big day helps Trenton to a win

Game 47: Back on Track
Yanks blow two leads; Dunn, White Sox walk-off with 6-5 win

Alright, let’s start with some notes:

  • On Twitter, Low-A Charleston hinted a rehabbing big leaguer might be in the lineup come Monday. I think they’re referring to Stephen Drew, who was sent to Low-A Greenville for tune-up games today and will play the River Dogs on Monday. Outside of Frankie Cervelli, I’m not sure which Yankee could be ready for rehab games on Monday. Certainly not Carlos Beltran, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, or Shawn Kelley based on everything we’ve heard recently, right?
  • C Gary Sanchez was included in the Not So Hot section of this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. He’s been in a slump for a while now. RHP Brady Lail was mentioned under the Helium Watch though, so that’s cool.
  • C Austin Romine has been activated off the Triple-A Scranton DL while LHP Nik Turley and RHP Chris Leroux were placed on it, according to Donnie Collins. Turley missed the start of the year with an unknown arm injury, but going from Extended Spring Training to the Triple-A DL suggests he will soon be activated.
  • 2B Angelo Gumbs has been placed on the High-A Tampa DL, according to Nicholas Flammia. No idea what’s wrong with him.

Game 47: Back on Track
Yanks blow two leads; Dunn, White Sox walk-off with 6-5 win
  • Conor in China

    At least some good days on the farm after a blown game in Chicago.

  • nycsportzfan

    Hard to care about this tonight. Just a wretched loss against White Sox tonight. Hard to even get over. Just can’t for the life of me get Robertson’s pitch on 0-2? I just can’t. How do you not throw a hook in the dirt against that type of power hitter?

  • ropeadope

    Low-A Charleston hinted a rehabbing big leaguer might be in the lineup come Monday.

    Mariano? Pettitte? Yogi? Vernon?

    Anyone at this point, no?

  • Wolfgang’s Fault

    Bleich & Tyler Webb w/nice outings for Trenton. Webb was drafted in the 10th round last year, & is a 6’6″ 225 Lb. left-hand relief pitcher who could very well move quickly. Struck out 5 guys in two innings tonight. Impressive.

    • JU

      Will Bleich just stay in AA for the rest of his life? I mean c’mon – if the guy isn’t a prospect, then just move him up and see what happens, who cares. If he is, has he not demonstrated enough success at that level to warrant a promo?

    • nycsportzfan

      Webbs had my intrigue lately as well.

  • Wolfgang’s Fault

    Zach Wilson quietly putting up some nice #’s for Tampa. He barely gets any press, but he seems to find a way to hang in there.

  • Wolfgang’s Fault

    Any word on Matthew Duran? Still a Yankee farmhand or what?

  • qwerty

    Mason Williams is batting .205 right now, there’s no stopping this kid!

  • Samuel

    Just noticed how much better Dante Bichette is playing over last year’s No. 6 overall pick Colin Moran.

    Almost exactly the same age, too.
