The Minors.

AAA: SWB won 4-3, beating LV. Bruce Billings 7 IP, 2 R.  2b Jose Pirela and 1B Russ Canzler 2 h each.

AA:  Trenton lost 10-6. DH Ben Gamel 2h, 2 rbi for C Gary Sanchez.

High A: Tampa split a DH/ won 10-4 but a bad outing for Banuelos, 2/3 IP, 4 R. C Pete O’Brien double, 2 solo HR. If the Yanks are to make a deal, expect a C to be dealt. McCann has a long-term deal, then you have Cervelli (who I would deal once he gets healthy), Romine, Murphy, Sanchez and O’Brien. You can clear up the logjam and get help elsewhere by dealing someone here.  ‘

They lost the other game 9-1. ‘

Low A: Charleston split a DH. Lost 3-2.  Caleb Smith 0 R, 2 h in  5 2/3.  Both teams only had 3 hits in the game.

Won the other game 8-4. Paul O’Neill’s nephew, Mike, Triple, HR and 3 RBI (CF).

S.T. Game 21. Yanks one-hit Marlins, 7-0

CC Sabathia tossed five no-hit innings, striking out five, in the Yanks 7-0 win in Panama today in the other part of their split squad games.

After getting no-hit last night, the Yanks almost returned the favor, one-hitting the Marlins.

CC retired 15 of the 16 batters he faced, with the only batter reaching doing so on a two-out error by Zelous Wheeler in the fifth. Wheeler had driven in a run earlier with a double.

David Robertson pitched a scoreless, hitless sixth. Miami didn’t get their only hit until the seventh off of Preston Claiborne when Giancarlo Stanton singled and was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Cesar Cabral pitched the eighth and Chris LeRoux the ninth. LeRoux went 1-2-3 and struck out two.

Francisco Cervelli was 3 for 3 with an RBI and the red-hot Yangervis Solarte was 3 for 5 with 2 RBI. Solarte is at .517 this spring.

Antoan Richardson was 2 for 2, and Gary Sanchez hit a 2-run HR in the 9th.

Zoilo Almonte was 2 for 2.

The Yanks are now 10-9-2 this spring.

 

 

S.T. Game 19. Yanks no-hit down in Panama, lose 5-0

The Yanks have a split squad in Panama to play two games and to honor Mo.

Tonight, that team got no hits in losing 5-0.

Adam Warren started and pitched well in his bid for the #5 starter spot. 4 1/3 IP, 1R, 2 H, 0 walks and 6 K. Great job.

Chase Whitley gave up a run in an inning of work.

Matt Daley, 1 2/3, no runs. Brian Coello, who has stunk this spring (sorry, being honest), 3 R, 2 ER in 1/3 of an inning. Coello’s ERA this spring? 33.00

Yoshinori Tateyama,  no runs in 2/3 and Jim Miller no runs in 1 IP.

The Yanks record this spring is now 8-9-2.

The lineup did have Gardner, Jeter, Beltran, Soriano, Sanchez, Cervelli  & Almonte in it.

 

S.T. Game 3. 4 HR carry Yanks, 7-4

The Yanks got their first s.t. win (I don’t count the one over FSU) with a 7-4 win over the Tigers. Four Yanks went deep—McCann, Jose Pirela,  top catching prospect Gary Sanchez, and Yangervis Solarte. For Solarte, it was is second HR this spring.

Adam Warren started and gave up no runs in 2 IP even though he walked two and gave up two hits. The Yanks got one scoreless inning out of Shawn Kelley, Mark Montgomery,  Danny Burawa, Fred Lewis, Chase Whitley and Preston Claiborne.

Brian Gordon gave up all four runs in his one inning of work.

CC, Kuroda and Tanaka will all pitch tomorrow (Saturday).

 

Yankees upgrade at catcher, sign McCann

Sorry I’ve been away. My computer died and I had to get a new one. I’m still trying to figure the new one out (new operating system, etc.)

Last year’s catchers were terrible offensively. Cervelli (before he got hurt), Stewart, Romine and Murphy—the latter two just rookies—combined to hit just .213 with 8 HR.

That has changed. The Yankees signed former Brave Brian McCann to a five-year deal worth $85MM, with an option for a sixth year which could take the deal to $100MM.

McCann turns 30 in February. He is a 7x All-Star and 5x Silver Slugger. Since becoming a full-timer in 2006, his average line since then is .277-21-80, which is Posada-like numbers. OPS+118. He is a middle of the order threat.

Compare this to Stewart’s .211-4-25, OPS+ 57 of last year, or the rookie Romine’s .207-1-10, OPS+ 51.

The next question is what this deal will mean for Cervelli, Stewart, Romine, Murphy or even Sanchez. I’d dump Cervelli (50 game suspension last year as well as the injuries) and Stewart (good defense but can’t hit a lick), and decide on which of the prospects to keep. Since McCann is signed for five years (and with a no-trade clause), you may see two of the prospects dealt. After all, the Yanks have to fill holes elsewhere as well, and using the prospects in a trade–especially when they are blocked by McCann right now—makes sense.

Minors. Trenton wins Game 1.

Trenton won the first game of its playoff series by scoring 3 in the bottom of the 10th after giving up 2 in the top half. They win 6-5.

Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte gave up the runs but was saved by the rally.

All three runs scored after two were out in the 10th. Jose Pirela doubled, Gary Sanchez singled him home, and singles by Tyler Austin, Casey Stevenson (tie) and Ben Gamel (game winner) won it.

Pirela and Austin had 3 hits each. 2 doubles, 2 rbi for Austin. 2 h, 2 RBI for Gamel.
