The minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: 5-3 win for SWB. They beat our old buddy, Chien Ming Wang, who is in the Braves’ system trying to get back to the majors but having a rough go of it. The 35-year-old Wang is 0-3, 5.64. LF Slade Heathcott 2 h, 2 RBI, .337. Bryan Mitchell (2-2, 2.59) 6 IP, 1 R, 4 H. See my Game 28 post of the big club. Mitchell is pitching well. Capuano, Nova, and Tanaka could all be ready in a few weeks. CC is 0-5, 5.45. What will the Yankees do?

AA: 9-1 Trenton win. Brady Lail 1 R, 5 IP. 2 RBI each for 1B Greg Bird, DH Eric Jagielo and 3B Dante Bichette, Jr.

High A:  9-1 Tampa win. Rookie Davis 1 R, 5 IP. Giovanny Gallegos 3 scoreless relief innings with 5 K. 16 hits for Tampa, with everybody in the lineup getting one. SS Tyler Wade .320, DH Matt Snyder .371.

A: Charleston won 3-1. 2 doubles and 2 RBI for DH Isaias Tejeda. Luis Cedeno 1 R in 5 IP (3-0, 0.59). Two scoreless innings each for Yoel Espinal (0.61) and Dillon McNamara (0.84).

The minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB scored in the top of the 9th to go up 7-6 but blew it in the bottom of the 9th and lost 8-7. Tyler Webb came in with the 7-6 lead and didn’t get an out, instead giving up b-2-b HR.  3B  Jose Pirela’s rehab has now taken him to AAA. He entered 1 for 14 on his rehab, went 1 for 4 (double, walk) and 1 RBI. 1B Kyle Roller double, HR, 2 RBI. C Austin Romine solo HR.

AA: Trenton off.

High A: Tampa won 7-1 on a two-hitter. Connor Kendrick 5 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 walks and 5 K.  Luis Niebla 3 IP, 3 K, ERA still 0.00. DH Matt Snyder 3 for 5, HR, 4 RBI. 3B Miguel Andujar 3 hits, rbi.

A: 5-4 win for Charleston.  Luis Cedeno 1 run, (unearned) and 8 K in 5 1/3.

Andrew Bailey was shut down after shoulder trouble.

Thanks to all for your support while my mom had major surgery today. So far, so good, but a long recovery process lies ahead.

The Minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB lost 6-2, Kyle Davies giving up 6 R in 3 IP. Tyler Webb and Brandon Pinder combined for six scoreless innings of relief. CF Slade Heathcott 2 H, 2 RBI.

AA: Rough outing for Yanks’ top pitching prospect Luis Severino. He gave up 6 runs, 3 ER in 5 innings pitched in a 10-3 Trenton loss. Trenton was sloppy, committing five errors. Seven of the ten runs they gave up were unearned.

Yesterday in the minors.

AAA: The Yanks aren’t the only ones off to a slow start. SWB is now 0-3 after losing 7-2 on Saturday. Graham Stoneburner was an emergency starter (Phil Hughes was supposed to make a rehab start here, but was called up to make the Yankees start). Stoneburner gave up 3 R, 2 ER, in 4 IP. Juan Cedeno and Mark Montgomery kept the RailRiders in the game, combining for four scoreless innings, but Jim Miller continued to struggle, giving up 4 runs in the ninth. Miller gave up 5 R in his 1 IP on April 4th, so in 2 innings at AAA so far, he’s giving up 9 runs for an ERA of 40.50.

1B Luke Murton and 3B Addison Maruszak had two hits each—four of the RailRiders’ seven.

AA: Trenton’s game was ppd. due to cold weather.

High A: Tampa lost 8-3. Once again, the BP (see AAA above) didn’t come through. Shane Greene gave up 1 R and struck out 8 in 5 IP, but Joel De La Cruz gave up 2 in 2 IP and Zach Arneson gave up 5, 4 ER in 2/3 IP. LF Ben Gamel was 3 for 5, 1 RBI. C Gary Sanchez 2 for 4, RBI. CF Mason Williams 2 hits and RF Eduardo Sosa 3 hits.

Low A: Charleston had a DH. They split.

Game 1: 9 inn., reg. sched. game: 6-2 win. Rafael DePaula 2 R in 4 1/3, with 11 of the 13 outs via the K. Alex Smith and Charlie Short combined for 4 2/3 scoreless innings of relief and 6 more K. 3b Dante Bichette, Jr. w/2 RBI. 2 hits, RBI for both C Pete O’Brien and 1B Saxon Butler.

Game 2: 7 inn (make up game from 4/4). An 8-4 loss. Derek Varnadore gave up 5 R, 4 ER in just 2 IP. Five players had 2 or more hits for the Riverdogs. HR: RF Yeicok Calderon.

The minors today.

AAA: SWB lost 8-4. Vidal Nuno, who had a great S.T., gave up 2 R in 4 2/3 IP. He struck out six. Sam Demel, just picked up this week, gave up 1 R in 1 1/3.

Demel is 4-4, 4.95 in his MLB career. He pitched in one game for Arizona last year. Most of his MLB experience came in 2010 & 2011. He is a 27 yr. old righty.

Mark Montgomery pitched a scoreless inning, Juan Cedeno 2/3 scoreless and Preston Claiborne a scoreless 1 1/3.

It was tied at 3 going into the top of the 10th, when Jim Miller imploded, giving up 5 runs in the top of the 10th as SWB lost 8-4.

SWB was 3 for 18 with RISP and left 17 on.

Dave Adams and Corban Joseph each had 2 hits.

AA: Trenton won 13-5. Nik Turley gave up 5, 4 earned, in just 2 2/3 but the BP picked him up. Dan Burawa (1 1/3), Shaeffer Hall (2), Kelvin Perez (2) and Branden Pinder combined for 6 1/3 scoreless IP, 12 K, and NO hits.  J.R. Murphy had a 3-run HR, as did Kyle Roller. Rob Segedin and Neil Medchill also HR’d, and Medchill had 4 RBI for the night.

High A:  Tampa won 7-4.  Bryan Mitchell 1 R in 5 IP. Gary Sanchez 2 H, double, 2 RBI.

Low A: Charleston’s game was ppd.

S.T. Game 32. Yanks beat O’s 11-8

The Yanks beat Baltimore 11-8 tonight to run their S.T. record to 13-18-1.

Mason “Classical Gas” Williams was 1 for 2 with 2 RBI. Eduardo Nunez was 2 for 3 with an RBI. New 1B Lyle Overbay was 2 for 5. Brennan Boesch had a 2-run HR. He and Francisco went back to back. Addison Maruszak and Bobby Wilson each had 2 rbi.

Dave Phelps went 5 1/3, 3 R, 4 H, 2 walks and 9 K. He was great until the 5th.

1 R in 2/3 for Spence, 4 R in 2/3 for Pinder.

Cedeno 1/3 scoreless. Goody and Claiborne each with a scoreless inning.

Hughes will miss his first start of the season, DL. Jeter will not play in  another spring game— even if Minor league — until next week.

Tim McCarver  (who a lot of us don’t like) is packing it in after this season.

S.T. Game 29. Yanks lose to Tigers 10-6

Andy Pettitte pitched three scoreless innings before struggling, and Cody Eppley couldn’t get anyone out as the Yanks lost 10-6 to the Tigers today.

Pettitte went 6 1/3, and gave up 4 runs on 8 hits. He walked one and struck out five. He pitched three scoreless innings, then gave up a run in the fourth and three in the fifth.

Eppley faced five batters and gave up five hits in the seventh. All five batters scored.

Shawn Kelley gave up 1 run in 1 1/3 and Juan Cedeno gave up no runs in 1/3.

Ben Francisco hit 2 HR and drove in 3 runs, Eduardo Nunez had 2 hits and an RBI, and Kevin Youkilis drove in 2. Juan Rivera was 3 for 4.

The wind was blowing out as five HR, and almost a sixth, were hit by the two teams.

Travis Hafner is only hitting .118 this spring. Hopefully (like Ibanez last year) the hits start coming when the season starts.

Dan Johnson may be getting the Matt Diaz-treatment soon (cut). He is at .063 this spring.

Clay Rapada will begin the year on the DL due to bursitis in his pitching shoulder. Meanwhile, Vidal Nuno has had a great spring, has opened eyes and is in the conversation for a second lefty (after Boone Logan) in the bullpen.
