S.T. Game 16 … and one split squad loses…

In the away split squad game today, the Yanks lost to the Phils, 6-2.

Ivan Nova went five, and struggled. He only gave up 3 R, but on 9 hits. He did strike out six.

Shane Greene and Bryan Mitchell each pitched a scoreless inning but then Preston Claiborne was awful.

Claiborne gave up 3 R in 2/3 of an inning. Mark Montgomery got an out.

Roberto Hernandez (the former Fausto Carmona) went 15 up, 15 down on the Yanks for the first five innings before Scott Sizemore led off the sixth against him with a single, whereupon Hernandez was pulled.

The Yanks managed just four hits in this game. A HR by Jacoby Ellsbury and RBI single by Francisco Cervelli in the seventh did cut it to 3-2 Phils before Claiborne gave any chance of winning the game away.

The Yanks are now 8-6-2 this spring and will continue to split squads up as some of the team heads to Panama (and Mo) this weekend.

S.T. Game 5. 3 Yanks HR equate to 8-2 win.

Eduardo Nunez and Carlos Beltran went back-to-back, and John Ryan Murphy had a 3-run HR in the Yanks 8-2 win over Toronto in spring training action today.

Starter Vidal Nuno went two innings, giving up 1 run (a HR by Jose Bautista) on 2 hits while striking out three.

Dean Anna, 27, tied it up with a hit in the second before Nunez (2-run HR) and Beltran went back-to-back in the third.

Bryan Mitchell pitched two scoreless innings, giving up three hits while striking out three.

Shane Greene gave up 1 run in his two innings of work.

Bruce Billings, Fred Lewis and Matt Daley each pitched a scoreless inning.

Yangervis Solarte went 2 for 2 and is now 6 for 7 for the spring. He turns 27 in July and has mostly played 2b and 3b in his minor league career. He has never played in the majors but has had three consecutive good years with the Twins AA and the Rangers’ AAA teams. He is opening eyes. Right now, Brian Roberts is still pegged as the Yanks’ 2B, but Roberts is  36 and has played in just 192 games since 2009. If Solarte (who has 2 HR) continues to impress, will they put the switch-hitter at 2B in place of the switch-hitting Roberts?

Hey, the Yanks have to get younger somewhere. Why not give him (or Anna) a shot if they continue to impress?

Just b/c SD, Min or Texas didn’t give them shot doesn’t mean they don’t deserve one. Click on their hyperlinks. Solarte and Anna did well in the minors and never got a shot at the majors.  Click on the hyperlinks for their stats.

Adonis Garcia went 3 for 4, top catching prospect Gary Sanchez had a hit and catcher Austin Romine threw out Jose Reyes trying to steal.

Yanks open exhibition season

The Yanks opened their exhibition season with an 8-3 win over Florida State. FSU QB and Heisman trophy winner  Jameis Winston went 0 for 2 for FSU.

Vidal Nuno tossed two scoreless innings for the Yanks, as did Brian Gordon and Bryan Mitchell. Shane Greene gave up 3 runs in his two innings of work.

Obviously, against a college squad, the Yanks didn’t bring their “A” squad.  Jose Gil went 2 for 2, Ramon Flores was 2 for 2 with a HR, and John Ryan (as he wants to be called, not J.R.) Murphy was also 2 for 2, both doubles.
