Dellin Betances got some love in this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet, being named the sixth hottest prospect in the minors. The High-A Tampa Yankees have the fourth worst record in all of the minor leagues (coming into tonight), so yeah, they’ve been pretty bad. Sorry for the short recap, but it’s been a long day…
- Triple-A won. David Phelps was the story of the night, he struck out seven and allowed just four baserunners (one hit, one walk, two hit batters) in six scoreless innings. Dan Brewer drew three walks after coming up for Kevin Russo, and Chris Dickerson picked up three hits. Jesus Montero singled in four at bats, and almost everyone else had at least one hit as well.
- High-A Tampa lost again, their 15th in the last 17 games. DeAngelo Mack and Emerson Landoni each singled, but everyone else in the lineup took a big fat 0-fer. Jose Ramirez gave up five runs in four innings, his fourth straight disaster start.
- Both Double-A Trenton and Low-A Charleston are still playing, and are only in the middle innings. Click the links to go to the box scores to see what’s happening.
Update: Both Slade Heathcott and Rob Segedin homered, so hooray for that.
