cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (73-64) lost 8-7 and stayed in a tie for the IL North Division lead with just three games to go.

Jordan Montgomery, on a rehab assignment, started, pitched 1 2/3 innings and gave up one unearned run, striking out three. On a pitch count, Montgomery left after 35 pitches.

1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 W, 3 K.

Ben Heller on rehab. 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 2 K.

Another rough outing at AAA for 20 year old prospect Deivi Garcia.

1 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 2 W, 2 K. Gave up 1 HR. Don’t rush him. He needs AAA time. For those wanting a September callup or a postseason berth, I disagree. AAA ERA 5.84. He needs more time.

The minors tonight.

AAA: SWB lost to Lehigh Valley (about seven miles from my home) 5-4 in 10 innings tonight, and boy did they blow it. Up 4-0, they gave up 3 in the 8th, 1 in the 9th, and 1 in the 10th.

Game 45. Tonight’s lineup

A 10 p.m. Eastern start since the Yanks are in Oakland. I hate those West coast times (they mean staying up really late) but what can you do?

The Yanks signed John Maine to a minor league deal today. Maine didn’t pitch in the majors in 2011, nor has he this year. In 2010 the 31-yr. old RHP went 1-3, 6.13 in nine starts for the Mets. He is 41-36, 4.35 in his MLB career, ERA+ 98. His best year was 2007 for the Mets when he went 15-10, 3.91.

From Lohud’s blog:

Former Yankees outfielder Chad Curtis has been charged with five counts of criminal sexual conduct after accusations he inappropriately touched two students at a Michigan high school.

Now that’s odd. Curtis was a person who sort of ticked off some teammates because he was, as they put it, too pushy as far as his religion and beliefs. You may remember him for his two HR (one a walkoff) in Game 3 of the 1999 WS, and for catching the last out of that WS. Now to let the system find him guilty or not.

Yanks 23-21, 4th in A.L. East, 4 1/2 out. OPS+ 110, ERA+ 103. Even with their pythagorean record.

BA/HR/RBI  SB/attempts  OPS+

RHP  Nova   4-2, 5.69  ERA+ 74     Needs to do better

Jeter has 3152 career hits, tied with Paul “Big Poison” Waner and two behind George Brett on the all-time list.

A-Rod is 180 hits from 3000, and 89 RBI from 2000. The HR count is at 636, and he is 152 runs scored away from 2000.

The minors tonight

AAA: SWB won 9-8. A setback for Manny Banuelos after a couple of good outings. 4 IP, 5 R. ERA to 4.50. Steve Pearce 1 for 5, HR, 3 RBI. .326-8-22 (the guy overlooked by Feinsand, Sterling and Waldman when they said no one playing 1B at AAA is doing well). Cervelli HR, 2 RBI. Colin Curtis 3 h, rbi.

AA: 7-1 win for Trenton. Mike O’Brien 1 R, 3 h, in 7 ip. Cody Johnson 2 run HR. 2 h, solo hr Corban Joseph. Yadil Mujica 2 h, 2 RBI.

A+: 2-0 loss for Tampa, who got just 3 hits.

Low A: 1) Completion of a suspended game: Charleson lost 3-2 in 10. Scottie Allen 1 r in 7 ip. (1.29) No decision. Mason Williams 2 h, triple.

2) Regular game just 7 innings. Charleson wins 10-5. Ben Gamel 3 h, rbi. Francisco Arcia 4 for 4, 3 doubles, 3 RBI.

The minors tonight

AAA: SWB (Empire State) won 4-1. Ramon (NOT RUSS as one media jackass stated) Ortiz went  7 IP, 2 H, 8 K. 0 runs. Colin Curtis 3 H. 2 hits, HR, 3 RBI for Ronnier Mustelier, and I really wonder how long the Yanks can keep him down and not bring him up. Really. At this stage, better him as a righty backup OF than Jones. Eventually, youth MUST be served.

AA:  Trenton got creamed 12-3. Cory Arbiso 9 R, 3 Er in 2 ip. Cody Johnson a 2-Run HR, but Trenton only got 3 hits.

A+:   9-3 win for Tampa. Ramon Flores 2 h, HR, 3 rbi. Kelvin Castro 2 doubles, 2 RBI.

Low A: No game. Charleston is 26-12.
