The minors today

AAA: SWB was supposed to have a DH today. Both games were ppd.

AA: Trenton lost 9-5. Francisco Rondon 6 R in 5 IP. C Kyle Higashioka 2 h, 3 rbi.

High A: Tampa lost 9-2. Shane Greene 5 R, 3 ER, in 7 iP. Manny Barreda 4 R in just 1/3 IP. 2B Rob Refsnyder is on fire. 2 hits. .410 at High A after hitting .370 at Low A. For this season, 36 for 93 in 23 games. .387-1-16. Wow. He is 22 and a righty bat. He only hit .241-4-22 in 46 games at Low A Charleston last year, and I wonder (with Cano at 2B) what other positions he can play. But what an April!

Low A: Charleston got only 1 hit in the whole game but won 1-0. Gabe Encinas six shutout innings and the only hit was by CF Jake Cave. Ben Paullus 2 scoreless and Taylor Garrison one scoreless IP. The run came in the bottom of the 8th, and came without the benefit of a hit. With one out, Taylor Dugas walked and stole second. He went to third on a WP, and Claudio Custodio walked. With Jake Cave batting, Custodio stole second and went to third on a WP, while Dugas scored.

S.T. Game 15. Jeter, Mo play, but Yanks lose 2-1 on the day Mo announces 2013 will be it.

Mariano Rivera made it official in a press conference this morning, that this year would be his last. He then took the mound in a game for the first time since tearing his ACL last May.

1-2-3, with two K. Of course. That’s why he’s the great Mariano. He pitched the one inning, the fifth.

Derek Jeter singled on the first pitch he saw in game action since breaking his ankle in game 1 of last year’s ALCS. Of course. Jeter was 1 for 2 for the game, playing as the DH.

It wasn’t enough to keep the Yanks from losing the game 2-1 and falling to 3-12 for spring training (thank goodness these games don’t count).

Jose Ramirez continued his solid spring. The 23 year old, who was 7-6, 3.19 for High-A Tampa last year, pitched the first four innings, no runs, one hit, no walks and 4 K. You wonder if he is going to AA Trenton or if they’ll jump him right to AAA. He’s been great this spring.

Joba pitched one scoreless inning, then Francisco Rondon gave up a run in the seventh. Cody Eppley pitched a scoreless eighth, and Jim Miller gave up a run in the ninth.

In the ninth, Bobby Wilson blooped a single and Slade Heathcott beat out an infield hit. After an out and an error, Thomas Neal hit an RBI groundout for the Yanks’ only run.

Ichiro had two hits, and Ronnier Mustelier had a triple (but Mustelier struck out with two on and no one out in the ninth).
