Luis Cessa continued his strong spring with four scoreless innings.

Aaron Judge singled, walked, scored two runs and drove in one.

Giancarlo Stanton had an RBI double.

Gary Sanchez had 2 doubles and drove in 2 runs.

Greg Bird hit a solo HR.

Sosebee 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 2 W, 0 K.

The bad news: Dellin Betances to the DL with a shoulder issue. He’ll miss the start of the season.

Estevan Florial has another fracture in the wrist besides the one first diagnosed.

Other news: The Angels’ Mike Trout has 2 years and $66MM left on his deal. That was extended today for 10 more years and some $362MM(!!) .

Leroy Stanton, an OF for the Mets (1970-1971), Angels (1972-1976) and Mariners (1977-1978) from 1970 to 1978 died at the age of 72. He had 14 HR, 82 RBI and 18 SB for the 1975 Angels and 27 HR and 90 RBI for the expansion 1977 Mariners. For his career, a .244 hitter, OPS+ 103.

S.T. Game 21. Yanks bomb Jays, 17-7. Hit 6 HR. 11 of 19 hits extra bases. Florial breaks wrist.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

2 days. 31 runs.

Today, 17 runs, 19 hits, 6 of which were HR. of the 19 hits, 11 were for extra bases.

6 hr, 3 doubles, 2 triples.

Bring it north, don’t leave it in FL.

The Yanks improved to 11-6-4 on spring training with a 17-7 win today over Toronto.

Lots of highlights.

Aaron Judge has 10 hits this spring, 4 doubles, 6 HR. If this is an indication on his 2019 season, then he’ll be a monster. A four-man OF does not help when he hits a bomb for a HR. And he had one today.

Unfortunately, in this game, top prospect Estevan Florial broke his wrist. Sigh.

Minor league C Jorge Saez had a 2-run HR.

Matt Lipka 2 for 2 , HR, 3 RBI.

Greg Bird single, 2 walks.

Gleyber Torres had a 2-run HR

Thairo Estrada 2 hits, RBI

Clint Frazier 2 run triple.

Zach Zehner 2 run HR.

2 hits, 2 RBI Gio Urshela, inc. a HR.

A bit disappointed with J.A. Happ so far this spring.

Happ (W)  3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 W, 2 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Britton (H) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Chapman 1 Ip, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Kahnle, 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR
Diehl 1 1/3 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 1 W, 2 K.
Weissert 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K
Holder 1 Ip, 0 r, 1 h, 0 w, 0 k.

 

 

 

 

S.T. Game 12. Yanks blank Phils, 6-0.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (6-5-1) blanked the Phillies 6-0 today in spring training action.

Estevan Florial, the Yanks’ #1 prospect, hit a 3-run HR and had two hits.

Mike Ford had a solo HR.

Miguel Andujar had 2 hits.

Paxton (W) 3 1/3 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 W, 5 K.
Ottavino 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K
Holder 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Farquhar 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Hale 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 4 K.

Nice job by the Yankees’ pitchers today.

Especially nice to see Farquhar, roughed up in his first outing since the near-fatal brain aneurysm last April, have a solid second outing.

 

S.T. Game 7. Forget the 8-7 loss. Farquhar an inspiration.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

It’s only spring training, so wins and losses don’t matter so much (personally, I don’t care about wins and losses until the last week. I care that no one gets hurt seriously in these games). The story today was about Danny Farquhar, who although his numbers weren’t good and he took the loss, was an inspiration.

For you see, the fact Farquhar was on the mound at all is amazing. Last April while pitching for the White Sox, he came into the dugout after a relief appearance, suffered a brain aneurysm, and almost died. This near-fatal brain hemorrhage put him in intensive care for two weeks.

He had a rough outing today, giving up 5 runs in just 1/3 of an inning, so you can see it may be a long road back.

But the fact that there IS a road back is special.

The Yanks lost to the Pirates, 8-7, to drop their S.T. record to 3-3-1.

In the first, doubles by Tulo (looking good!) and Andujar plated a run. The Yanks got another in the second on a double by Estevan Florial and a single by Thairo Estrada.

They went up 3-0 in the third when Florial doubled in a run.

The Pirates got one in the third, but the five they got in the fourth off of Farquhar did the Yanks in.

Tulowitzki a double, Bird a double, Florial 2 doubles. Andujar 2 hits, one a double. Ryan Lavarnway 2 RBI. Clint Frazier a double. The Yanks hit 6 doubles.

Cessa 3 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 0 R, 4 K.
Farquhar (L, BS) 1/3 IP, 5 R, 3 H, 2 W, 0 K.
Tarpley 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Harvey 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Hale 1 2/3 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Diehl 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Lail 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.

Ok, Cessa did well, so has Loaisiga so far. CC is suspended for the first five games of the season, so we’ll see who takes that first start.

Yanks place two prospects in top 100 list.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

With the Yanks having had players like Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar making the jump to the majors, and having traded away some other prospects, there are only two prospects in the top 100.

#57. Estevan Florial. 21, OF. Lefty bat. Hit .255-3-27 with 11 SB at High A Tampa in 2018, 75 games. Missed a lot of 2018 with an injury.

#66. Jonathan Loaisiga. RHP. 24. Got in 9 games with the Yanks in 2018, 4 starts. 2-0, 5.11 (ERA+ 86). Was 6-1, 2.89 between High A and AA last season in 14 starts. Hasn’t even pitched in AAA yet.

 

Betts (AL) Yelich (NL) win MVP honors. Yanks finish 12, 19, 20 and 22. Final AFL stats for Yanks’ prospects.

Mookie Betts of Boston won the AL MVP quite handily, getting 28 of the 30 first place votes. Mike Trout of the Angels finished as the runnerup for the fourth time (Trout has won the award twice). Trout got one first place vote, and Betts’ teammate, J.D. Martinez, who finished fourth, got the other.

As for Yankees, Aaron Judge finished 12th, Giancarlo Stanton 19th, Didi Gregorius finished in a tie for 20th (he was also 20th last year) and Aaron Hicks finished in a tie for 22nd.

Christian Yelich of Milwaukee won the NL MVP, getting 29 of the 30 first place votes (the only other one going to Jacob DeGrom of the Mets, who finished fifth). Javier Baez of the Cubs was the runnerup.
