AAA: SWB won 3-1. Brian Gordon (2-2, 4.23) 7 Ip, 1 R, 7 h, 2 walks, 3 K. Jose Ramirez (keep an eye on him for a possible 2014 callup) and Matt Daley finished up. It was Ramirez’ first appearance of the year. He’s 24 and the team is high on him. Last year he was 2-6, 3.67 between AA/AAA with 78 K in 73 2/3 IP. Meanwhile, the Yanks released IF/OF Ronnier Mustelier. 3B Zelous Wheeler with a hit, rbi (.373).
AA: Trenton won 6-4 in 12 innings. Jairo Heredia 3 scoreless IP of relief, W, 6 K. Heredia, 24, is someone I’ve been following for a while. He missed all of 2012 with shoulder surgery. The Thunder got three two-run homers. One by DH Kyle Roller, one by 2B Rob Refsnyder and the game-winner by 1B Dan Fiorito. Roller, a 1b/dh who is 26, is at .392-9-23. He’s 6’1″, 250, and a lefty bat. Callup to AAA coming soon?
