Update: The Short Season Staten Island game is over and has been added to the post.
Mason Williams got some love in this week’s Prospect Hot Shot, getting ranked as the 13th hottest prospect in the minors. Meanwhile, Gary Sanchez has been placed on the DL according to the Low-A Charleston roster. I have no idea what’s wrong with him, but remember he left last night’s game for an unknown reason. Ray Kruml has been activated off the DL for Double-A Trenton.
High-A Tampa (6-4 loss to Dunedin)
Alex Rodriguez, 3B: 2 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K – the homer came in a 3-1 count and was hit to left-center field, the double was an oppo shot into the right field corner, the strikeout was looking … not a bad start to the rehab, but don’t get too excited, he’s old for the level
Abe Almonte, CF, DeAngelo Mack, RF, Kelvin Castro, 3B & Mitch Abeita, C: all 1 for 4 – Almonte scored a run and struck out … Mack whiffed … Castro doubled, scored a run, and struck out twice … Abeita doubled, drove in a run, and struck out three
Walt Ibarra, SS & Luke Murton, 1B: both 0 for 4 – Murton struck out twice
Kyle Roller, PH-DH: 0 for 1, 1 K
Cody Johnson, LF & Emerson Landoni, 2B: both 2 for 4 – Johnson doubled, drove in a run, and scored another … Landoni got picked off first
Sean Black, RHP: 4 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 4-3 GB/FB – as hard is it is to believe, he’s been worse than Brackman this year
Ronny Marte, RHP: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1-3 GB/FB
Mike Gipson, RHP: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0-1 GB/FB
