Yanks off Monday. Send Abreu to AA.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks were off on Monday. No spring training games.

They did send prospect Albert Abreu down to AA Trenton on Sunday.

Babe Ruth’s stepdaughter, Julia Ruth Stevens, passed away at the age of 102.

S.T. Game 14. Cessa makes statement in Yanks’ 6-1 win. Tanaka named Opening Day Starter. A-Rod engaged to J-Lo.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

On a day when Masahiro Tanaka was named the Opening Day Starter, Luis Cessa made a statement about who should fill in while Luis Severino and CC Sabathia are on the shelf.

Cessa pitched four great innings (granted, against Baltimore) in the Yanks’ 6-1 win over the Orioles last night. The win puts the Yanks’ spring training record at 7-6-1.

Paxton and Happ will follow Tanaka, in that order.

Getting back to the game.

C Gary Sanchez drove in 2 runs.

Tyler Wade, who’ll probably stick as a utility man, had a double. Clint Frazier, probably AAA bound to get regular at bats (especially since most of 2018 was lost due to the concussion issues) went 0 for 4.

Greg Bird, fighting it out with Luke Voit for the 1B job only one will win, went 1 for 3 with an RBI.

Billy Burns had a double, RBI and 2 SB. Angel Aguilar went 1 for 1 with an RBI, as the lineup was very prospect-heavy.

Cessa (w) 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.
Tarpley (H) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. Don’t count him out for a spot.
Abreu 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 3 W, 1 K.
Diehl 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Harvey 1 1/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K. Gave up HR.

In other news, Yankee-related, ex-Yankee Alex Rodriguez and singer/dancer Jennifer Lopez announced their engagement.

S.T. Game 8 (home game of S/S). 6 HR lead Yanks to 7-1 win.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks had a split squad today. For the sake of clarification, the home game I’ll designate as S.T. Game 8 and the away game S.T. Game 9.

This is a recap on the home game, in which the Yanks beat the Tigers 7-1.

The Yanks hit 6 HR (2 by Gardner, 2 by Judge, 1 each by Gary Sanchez and Isiah Gilliam) in beating the Tigers 7-1.

Gardner and Judge went back-to-back to lead off the bottom of the first.

Masahiro Tanaka pitched three scoreless innings, and after giving up a leadoff triple in the top of the first got two strikeouts and a flyout to strand the runner. That hit was all he gave up.

The only blip for the Yanks was a HR given up by Aroldis Chapman to the first batter he’s faced in a game this spring.

Gardner 2 solo HR, HBP
Judge 2 HR, 3 RBI
Sanchez solo HR
Gilliam solo HR
Andujar 2 hits

Tanaka (W) 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K
Holder 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Chapman 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up HR.
Britton 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Ottavino 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Abreu 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.

 

 

S.T. Game 4. Tough day for two prospects in Yanks’ 10-4 loss.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (2-2) lost to Detroit in spring training game #4 in a game called because of rain in the seventh inning. The score was 10-4.

It started out well. The Yanks got four runs in the top of the first, three of them via a HR by Greg Bird. But out of the four hits they got on the day, three were in that first inning.

For minor league prospects Chance Adams and Domingo Acevedo, it was a brutal day. Both of them couldn’t even last an inning, and both gave up 5 runs.

Adams 1/3 IP (L), 5 R, 4 H, 1 W, 0 K. 
Lail 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Abreu 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Acevedo 2/3 IP, 5 R, 2 H, 2 W, 1 HBP, 0 K. Gave up grand slam.
Hutchison 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Brothers 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Harvey 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.

Adams, 24, RHP, was great in 2016 and 2017, but took a big step backward in 2018 and more so today. In 2016, he was 13-1, 2.33 between A+ and AA, and in 2017 went 15-5, 2.45 between AA/AAA. But last year he was 4-5, 4.78 at AAA and 0-1, 7.04 in three MLB games. Today didn’t help. He’s AAA bound, but needs to regain that 2016 and 2017 form and rebound from last year.

Acevedo, who’ll be 25 soon, a RHP, was 3-3, 2.99 last year, mostly at AA Trenton. We’ll have to see if he is ticketed for AAA or AA.
