The minors today.

AAA: SWB was off today, and the Pawtucket/Gwinnett game was ppd., so SWB’s magic # for clinching the division remains at 1.

AA: Trenton won 7-4. Vidal Nuno (9-5, 2.39) 1 R in 6 IP. Pedro Feliciano 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk and 0 K. CF Adonis Garcia 2 HR, 3 RBI. Double and solo HR 3b/2b Dave Adams (.315-8-47). If you forgot, Adams was supposed to be included in the Lee deal a few years ago but had a leg injury, which forced Seattle to call the deal off and deal Cliff Lee to Texas. SS Addison Maruszak with a solo HR. (.275-15-54).

Low A: Tampa lost both games of a DH.

Game 1: 5-1 loss, only four hits. 2 doubles for RF Tyler Austin.

Game 2: 1-0 loss, once again only four hits. 2 hits 1B Kyle Roller.

Low A:   Charleston’s game ppd.

UPDATE: SWB’s Dave Miley deservedly named IL Mgr. of the Year. Hey, you win a division (magic # 1) and do it without any home games as the traveling nomads? You deserve it!

Update 2 MAJORS: Joel Sherman@Joelsherman1

Jack Curry@JackCurryYES

Steve Pearce hit 4th in Yankee debut. McGehee was option to Class A Charleston to open roster spot. Allows Yanks 2 recall McG sooner

The minors tonight. Hurricane cancels all FSL games. Long one for SWB.

AAA: SWB’s magic # at 1 after a 5-4, 13-inning win over Lehigh Valley, a few miles from my home. GW RBI double by 3B Kevin Russo. Adam Warren 4 R in 6 2/3 (3.71). Juan Cedeno, Ryota Igarashi, Preston Claiborne and Chase Whitley combined for 6 1/3 scoreless innings out of the bullpen. C Austin Romine 3 for 7, solo HR. 1B Kosuke Fukodome 1 for 2 with 5 walks. Solo HR CF Melky Mesa. Russo 2 for 4, 3 walks. A rough night for SS Eduardo Nunez, who went 0 for 7. 2 H, 2 walks for LF Ronnier Mustelier.

AA: Trenton lost 8-1, getting just 3 hits in the process. 2B Kevin Mahoney solo HR. Craig Heyer 7 R in 2 1/3 (2-5, 6.40).

Pedro Feliciano pitched one inning. 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk and 2 K. Since he was on the DL, he could be placed on the postseason roster and does NOT have to be called up by 9/1.

High A: Tampa was ppd. All FSL games were cancelled/postponed due to Hurricane Isaac.

Low A:  No games scheduled.

Yesterday in the minors.

AAA: SWB inched even closer to the division title with a 6-4 win. John Maine two unearned runs in 6 IP (7-5, 5.45). 2B Corban Joseph 3 h, 2 doubles, HR, 3 RBI (.271-13-54). LF Chris Dickerson 4 hits (.325). 2 hits each for SS Eduardo Nunez and just-off-the-DL DH Ronnier Mustelier. SWB’s magic # is 3.

AA: 6-1 win for Trenton. Mikey O’Brien 6 2/3 scoreless IP (5-6, 4.30), just one hit. 1B Luke Murton 3 h, double, triple, 2 RBI (.253, 67 RBI).  2 hits, RBI for both C J.R. Murphy and 3b Dave Adams (.314). Trenton is up 5 with 12 to go as far as being division champ.

High A: Tampa split a DH.

Game 1: 11-5 win. Pedro Feliciano moved up to Tampa, but was roughed up in his inning of work. 1 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 walks and 1 K. Jose Ramirez 5 IP, 2 unearned runs for the win (7-6, 3.30). LF Ramon Flores 2 H, HR, 3 RBI. 2 H, 2 RBI RF Tyler Austin, C Gary Sanchez and 3B Zach Wilson.

Game 2: 4-3 loss. Nik Turley, who STARTED GM. 1 (1 r in 1 IP), then gave way for Feliciano’s inning of rehab, started Gm. 2. 4 R in 6 2/3. (8-5, 3.05). Flores, in CF this game, had 2 hits. DH Slade Heathcott 2 hits, RF Austin 2 RBI.

Low A: 3-2 win for Charleston. 2B Ali Castillo with 2 h, HR, 2 RBI.


The minors today… and some MLB news.

First the MLB news. Nova has an inflammation of the rotator cuff. He’s shut down for 15 days. CC back and starts tomorrow. Phelps stays in the rotation.

AAA: SWB (Empire State) should be clinching soon! Their magic # is down to 5. A 4-3 win in 11. Mike O’Connor 3 R in 6 IP (3.78) but Manny Delcarmen and Cory Wade combined for five scoreless IP out of the bullpen. CF Melky Mesa’s HR in the top of the 11th was the game winner. 2B Corban Joseph 2 h, 3 RBI. 2 doubles, 2 walks for RF Chris Dickerson.

AA: 3-0 win for Trenton. Vidal Nuno 0 r, 4 h in 6 IP (8-5, 2.45). Upcomer Mark Montgomery two scoreless IP. RF Zoilo Almonte 3 H, 2 for C J.R. Murphy.

High A: 9-5 loss for Tampa. C Gary Sanchez made 3 errors, another by Jose Mojica. It shows in Matt Tracy’s line: 7 R, 2 ER in 3 2/3. CF Ramon Flores 3 for 3. 2 doubles. DH Slade Heathcott 2 for 4, 2 doubles. RBI. 1 B Kyle Roller 2 hits, triple, rbi.

Low A: Charleston wins 10-9 in 11. RF Robert Refsnyder, CF Ben Gamel and 3B Dante Bichette Jr. with 3 hits each. 2 HR, 3 RBI Refsnyder. 2 RBI each Bichette & Gamel.

Another 1-2-3 inning for Feliciano at GCL. It’s amazing to think that he may actually be on the team and helping come September.

The minors today. Kelvin Perez good again.

AAA: SWB reduced its magic # to 7 with a 2-1, 12-inning win. Adam Warren 0 R, 2 H in 5 IP (3.64). Kelvin Perez, who I wrote about yesterday, threw two scoreless innings (as I wrote yesterday, replace Joba with this guy?) Perez was 6-1, 1.14 at AA, and he’s 1-0, 0.00 at AAA. The winning run scored on a SF by Cervelli after Nunez stole second and third. Cervelli and Dickerson each had two hits and a RBI.

AA: Trenton got crushed 14-2. Dellin Betances (3-4, 6.51 at AA) 5 R in 4 IP. 3B Dave Adams (.315) and SS Addison Maruszak 2 hits each. Betances has been a MAJOR disapointment this year. 3-5, 6.39 at AAA, 3-4, 6.51 at AAA. 6-9, 6.44 overall. His stock has dropped faster than those in 1929.

High A: Tampa crushed 12-2. Shane Greene 9 R in 2 2/3 IP. 3 hits each for CF Slade Heathcott and RF Tyler Austin.

Low A: Charleston gave up a run in the bottom of the 9th and lost 5-4. 2 H, HR, 3 rbi for DH Casey Stevenson.

Gulf Coast League: Pedro Feliciano pitched in a game suspended after three innings. He started, got his one inning of work in, and threw a 1-2-3 inning. You wonder if he might actually be a Sept. callup and help in the last month of the season.

Yesterday’s minors.

AAA: SWB won 10-3. Mike O’Connor 3 R in 5 IP (3-6, 3.73). Kelvin Perez two scoreless IP. Juan Cedeno 2 scoreless IP. SWB banged out 20 hits. C Francisco Cervelli, with one hit (2 rbi, .255), was the only player in the lineup to not have at least two. HR, 3 RBI  2b Corban Joseph (3 hits, .260-12-43). HR, 2 RBI DH Austin Romine (2 hits).  3 hits each for SS Eduardo Nunez and 3B Ramiro Pena. Perez, 26, had a 1.14 ERA at AA Trenton, (6-1) and is 1-0, 0.00 in three games at AAA. Overall 7-1, 1.03. The age worries me (27 in October) but talk about a breakout year. SWB is 73-56, and now has a four-game lead in the International League North, which is amazing because they have been the “traveling nomads” all season while their home ballpark is being renovated. As one writer suggested, there should be no question in naming Dave Miley AAA Mgr. of the Year.

AA: While SWB got 20 hits, Trenton got just two in a 3-2 loss. SS Addison Maruszak a solo HR. (.273-13-47). Vidal Nuno 2 r in 6 IP (7-5, 2.60). Trenton, at 72-54, leads the Eastern League’s Eastern Division by four games.

High A: Tampa ppd. Tampa leads the FSL North with a 31-23 record and has a 1 1/2 game lead for the second half of the season. Overall they are fourth in their division at 61-60, 10 1/2 out, but A ball plays a split season. They finished the first half at 30-37, fourth place, 12 out.

Low A: Charleston lost 7-6. Brett Gerritse 2 R in 5 IP (3.95). Melvin Mercedes 4 R in 2 1/3 (0-1, 11.81). 2 h, 2 RBI C Francisco Arcia. Charleston is 23-31 and in last place in the SAL South, 12 back. Overall they are 62-59, fourth, 14 back in their division. They were 39-28, third, 6 1/2 back in the first half of the season.

Pedro Feliciano hasn’t thrown one pitch for the Yankees since his shoulder surgery shortly after the Yanks signed him in 2011. He threw just one inning in the minors in 2011 (GCL, no runs, no hits, no walks and 1 K) and pitched in his third GCL game of this year yesterday. He threw one inning, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K. In his three games he has thrown 3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 walk and 5 K. Feliciano turns 36 next week. It’ll be a long road back but at least he’s started it.


Yanks off, but should gain today anyway

The Yankees have a much-deserved and needed off-day today (the only one between 8/27 and the end of the season) before starting a weekend set up in Toronto tomorrow, when A-Rod is expected to return to the lineup.

Tampa Bay is playing Boston in Boston however, and that works to the Yankees advantage.

The Yankees magic # for clinching the division is 11 over Boston.

Their magic # for clinching at least a wild card is 7 over the Rays.

Barring a rainout, one of those numbers will go down tonight.

Player news: Shoulder surgery (rotator cuff) for Feliciano. Garrison cleared waivers, outrighted to AA Trenton.

X-Rays negative on Cano after getting HBP on the foot Wed. night. They say ice, and he’ll be ready to go Friday, but if it was up to me, I’d give him a day off up in Toronto (astroturf) as a precaution.
