Minor League Report. Rehabs starting. Reports on Judge, Tulo, Didi, Stanton.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Aaron Judge threw yesterday but still is a long ways away. He has not begun swinging a bat yet. Oblique strain.

Troy Tulowitzki is taking grounders at third and expressed a willingness to play all over the infield. But once Didi (see next paragraph) returns, will there be any room for Tulo? Heck, there may not be room for LeMahieu what with Voit, Torres, Gio and Urshela in the infield, and Estrada may have to go down for Didi. Unless LeMahieu goes to third, but what then of Urshela?

Didi Gregorius got into an extended spring training game. He got two hits, made an error.

For Giancarlo Stanton, see below, high A Tampa.

Minor League Report. Andujar homers on Rehab stint. Also, a special moment remembered.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

 

Before I get into the minor league report, I would like to comment on the picture you see above. Gene Stephens, a backup/platoon OF who played in the majors for Boston (1952-1953, 1955-1960), Baltimore (1960-1961) the KC A’s (1961-1962) and Chicago White Sox (1963-1964) was a .240 hitter, 37 MLB HR, OPS+ 83. His 162 game average was .240-6-35. 12 years in the majors, nothing really significant about his career, except…

THIS photo.

This photo was taken on August 12, 1964. Mel Stottlemyre made his MLB debut against the White Sox, winning the game, and Stephens is the centerfielder for the White Sox that day looking up at a HR hit by Mickey Mantle that went over the 461 ft. sign and ALSO the fence and screen which combined were about 23 ft. high. It was said to be a 502 ft. shot.

Stephens just passed away a few days ago on April 27, age 86. I thought you’d like to know the story and see the photo.
