May 6, 2022. Rain washes out Yanks, AA and High A. Here’s AAA and Low A results.

Minor league action, May 3, 2022

AAA: SWB started the season 3-0, but have slipped to 9-15. Checking the batting averages, no one is hitting, even former major leaguers like Greg Bird, Ron Guzman, or Ryan Lamarre. They lost 2-0 last night, getting just five hits. #2 prospect Oswald Peraza is hitting just .203, and so is #14 prospect Oswaldo Cabrera. And other prospects at lower levels (#1 prospect Anthony Volpe and #3 prospect Jasson Dominguez, for example) are also struggling.

Game 49. Bullpen fails Yanks. Blow 3-0 lead and lose 4-3.

Minor league pitchers Brian Anderson (AA) and Andy Sisco (AAA) were released recently.

Here is tonight’s lineup out in Seattle.

Jeter SS .255-2-15  3 SB/5 att; OPS+ 75  2976 hits.
Granderson CF .280-16-36 6/8  164
Teixeira 1B  .253-13-32  0/0  140
Rodriguez 3B  .287-9-26  2/3  135
Cano 2B .279-9-32  4/4   120
Martin C .266-9-26  4/4  139
Posada DH .183-6-16  0/1  83    last HR? 4/23
Swisher RF  .204-2-19  1/2  70
Gardner LF   .270-3-13  8/14  110

Burnett P  5-3  4.02  ERA+ 99

Yanks 27-21 virtual tie for 1st with Boston. OPS+ 115; ERA+ 110
2 g. worse than Pythagorean record.

Recap:

Mark Teixeira homered in the 1st, #14, but A.J. struggled. He stranded two in the first (with one out, two walks then 2 K) and two in the second (striking out Ichiro to end the second) but the pitch count got up there. All four he stranded got on via the walk.

The Yanks got two on, one out in the second but Gardner stuck out, Jeter grounded out.

Swisher was robbed of a HR in the 4th. It would prove fatal.

In the fifth, Granderson walked with two out. Teix singled. A WP brought in one run, A-Rod singled for another 3-0.

Then the Yanks let it get away. This hurts, because tomorrow night it’s Nova vs. Felix Hernandez.

A.J. gave up a single, then a double to the great Ichiro. Two groundouts made it 3-2. A walk and a flyout. After five, 3-2 Yanks, but at 97 pitches, A.J. was done. He only gave 5 innings, and the failure to go further doomed the Yanks.

A.J. went 5, 2 R, 4 H, 6 k but 5 walks—hence the early exit. ERA 3.99.

Logan for the sixth and the Yanks lost it here. Logan faced one batter and gave up a hit. You wonder what this Yankees bullpen could be like if $18M weren’t on the DL (Marte, Feliciano and Soriano). In comes Ayala who until tonight wasn’t doing badly. Single. Walk. Bases loaded, no out. Two groundouts but each brings in runs. WP, HBP, K. 4-3 Mariners.

Logan faced just the one batter. Hit. Scored. ERA now 4.50. I never had much faith in Logan, still don’t. He had a good year last year but an ERA over 5.00 entering 2010. My attitude? Prove to me it wasn’t a career year. The problem is, there isn’t a lefty outside of Logan. Something for the Yanks to look at come the trade deadline. The other problem? There was SUPPOSED to be a lefty alongside Logan. Here is where Marte and Feliciano are truly missed.

Ayala went 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 walk and 2 K. He took the loss. 1-1, 1.93.

In the 8th, a bonehead play. With two out, Posada walks. Nunez PR and gets a SB to get into scoring position. He then gets picked off second. That just cannot happen.

Robertson had a 1-2-3 eighth, 2 k, era 1.35 but the Yanks’ goose was cooked. 4-3 loss.

Just five hits for the Yanks. Jeter got #2977 but was 1 for 5, .254. Teix had 2 of the 5 hits.

Cano is down to .273. Low for him. Posada’s o-for drops him to .178.

S.T. Game #9. Hughes struggles. Yanks, Astros combine for 38 hits in Yanks 10-8 win.

LIneup, via LoHud:

Derek Jeter SS
Russell Martin C
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Andruw Jones LF
Eric Chavez DH
Colin Curtis RF
Greg Golson CF

Phil Hughes, P

The Yanks have a split squad tomorrow, then another on Friday. LoHud gives the upcoming rotation, as well as the backups for today.

Upcoming rotation:

Monday: A.J. Burnett (home), Sergio Mitre (road)
Tuesday: Freddy Garcia
Wednesday: Bartolo Colon
Thursday: CC Sabathia
Friday: Phil Hughes (home), Ivan Nova (road)
Saturday: A.J. Burnett
Sunday: Sergio Mitre
Monday: Freddy Garcia
Tuesday: CC Sabathia (sim game on an off day)

Today’s available pitchers: Phil Hughes, Steve Garrison, Brian Anderson, Eric Wordekemper, David Phelps, Hector Noesi, Andy Sisco, D.J. Mitchell and Adam Warren.

Off the bench: C Gustavo Molina, 1B Jose Gil, 2B Kevin Russo, SS Eduardo Nunez, 3B Brad Suttle, LF Jordan Parraz, CF Austin Krum, RF Daniel Brewer, DH Justin Maxwell

A couple prospects (in bold) get to show their stuff today. 

For all those wanting to write in the Phils for 110 or more wins (and believe me, I’ve heard it), there may be some trouble in paradise. Their top prospect, OF Domonic Brown, started S.T. 0 for 15 with 9 strikeouts and know is out with a broken hammate bone in his right hand. Meanwhile, 2B Chase Utley hasn’t played at all yet due to patellar tendonitis. He just received a cortisone shot.

Updates: Hughes has the same second outing blues that CC had. 3 IP, 3 R (2 HR), 5 H, 0 walks and 2 K. Yanks got back to back doubles by Cano and Andruw Jones, Jones later scored on a SF. After 3, Yanks down 3-2 to Houston.

Steve Garrison goes 3, 1 R, 3 H, 1 walk, 0 K. A long-shot to make team. A-Rod hit 2-run HR in 5th. Golson a solo shot in 6th. Brad Suttle RBI single in 6th. In 7th, Singles by scrubs Parraz and Maxwell, double(?) by Brewer but Parraz thrown out at home. Austin Krum SF and a Nunez double plate two more. 8-4 Yanks after 6 1/2. Brian Anderson in to pitch.

Here is an example of why you can’t take S.T. wins and losses too seriously. Anderson is an ex-MLB OF, trying to make it back as a pitcher. He didn’t do well in his prior spring training outing and failed again today. 2/3 of an inning. 3 R on 5 hits. No walks or K’s. It’s why you have to look past the score to see the real story of the spring training games. Eric Wordekemper had to get the last out in the 7th. After 7, 8-7 Yankees.

Dave Phelps gives up the tying run on a walk and 2 doubles. It would have been worse, but after the walk, he picked the runner off. 8-8 going into the 9th. 

Of course, just Spring Training, and we haven’t seen Soriano and/or Rivera yet.

‎3 singles and an error give the Yanks two runs in the top of the 9th. 10-8 Yankees. Going into the bottom of the 9th, there have been 36 hits in this game, 21 by the Yankees.

Interesting ending. Dave Phelps (2 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 1 walk, 2 K) got a ground out, then gave up back-to-back singles. Then he committed a balk. 2nd and 3rd. One out. Tying run on second. He rebounded with two strikeouts to end the game. The last batter? Koby Clemens, Roger’s boy. 38 hits in the game. 21 for the Yankees. Yanks win 10-8, now 3-5-1 in S.T. ; Tomorrow there are two games. Split squads.

Odds and Ends.

Chad Durbin signed with Cleveland. Nick Johnson signed a minor league deal with the Indians as well.

I guess the Cleveland Clinic had a lot to do with being a major enticement for “Nicked-Up.”

Garret Anderson retired. He won’t make the HOF, but he had an excellent career. .293, over 2500 hits, four straight years of 100 or more RBIs. 3x All Star, a runnerup for ROY, 2 SS, Got MVP consideration 3x, including a 4th place finish in the Angels’ WS winning year of 2002. OPS+ of just 102, though. He led the league in doubles 2x.

Anderson’s 162 g. ave. was .293-21-99.   287 HR. In the postseason, he was .245-5-22 in 36 games.

Yanks’ news to come. If you have YES, the game is on there this afternoon. A.J. pitching. Could be interesting.  

Another player with a DUI. Austin Kearns got nabbed.

HOF manager Sparky Anderson seriously ill.

http://detnews.com/article/20101103/SPORTS0104/11030400/Ex-Tigers-manager-Sparky-Anderson-ill 

Update: I see that Joe Lis, a backup OF/1B for the Phils, Twins, Indians and Mariners from 1970-1977 has passed away at the age of 64.    

 In 780 MLB AB, Lis hit .233-32-92 with an OPS+ of 106.
