Minor League Report. Gio rebounds nicely.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (3-3) wins 5-1 over Lehigh Valley. Gio Gonzalez, who after the Yanks had signed him to a minor league deal, gave up 13 R, 12 ER in six innings in his first two appearances (one spring training and one AAA game) , put it together last night, pitching six shutout innings, giving up just 3 hits, and striking out 10. He walked one.

DH Mike Ford and SS Thairo Estrada each had 2 hits and an RBI. CF Billy Burns 2 hits.

With Luis Severino shut down, and, it appears, out until late June/early July, Gonzalez could now become an option for the Yankees’ rotation, or even the bullpen.

Another option could be signing free agent Dallas Keuchel.

But both options as far as the rotation goes, would most likely affect Domingo German, who so far, has pitched very well. As far as the bullpen, it most likely would affect Stephen Tarpley.

AA: Trenton (3-2) won 7-2. 2B Wendell Rijo 2-run HR. SS Hoy Jun Park solo HR. DH Rashad Crawford 2 hits. 3B Angel Aguilar 2 hits, 2 RBI. Three bullpen pitchers 5 IP, 0 R, 1 H.

High A: Tampa (2-4) lost 9-8. DH Matt Pita 3 hits, 4 RBI. 1B Dermis Garcia 2 RBI. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. Starter Rony Garcia 5 IP, 1 R, 7 K. End of game bullpen meltdown.

Low A: Charleston (3-3) lost both games of a DH, 17-3, then 8-3.

Game 1: CF Josh Stowers 2 hits. 2B Kyle Gray a 3-run HR.
Luis Medina 2 IP, 10 R, 10 H, 4 W, 3 K. Gave up 3 HR
Rodney Hutchinson 3 2/3 IP, 7 R, 3 H, 4 W, 3 K. Also gave up 3 HR.

Game 2: Got just four hits.
Alex Vizcaino 4 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 W, 7 K
Aaron McGarity (L) 1 1/3 IP, 6 R, 7 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.

Minor League Report.

AAA: SWB (2-3) lost to Lehigh Valley 5-4. DH Mike Ford 2 hits. 2B Gosuke Katoh 2 hits, RBI. Rough outing for Drew Hutchison, who gave up one run in the first inning and four more in the second.

AA:  Trenton (2-2) won 4-3. 1B Chris Gittens 2 hits, 3 RBI, inc. the GW 2-run HR in the 8th. Garrett Whitlock 6 IP, 3 R, 2 ER. David Sosebee 2 scoreless, 4 K for the W.

S.T. Game 28. Yanks beat Phils, 6-3. Stanton HRs 2X. More cuts.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Giancarlo Stanton homered twice as the Yanks (16-8-4) beat the Phillies 6-3 in spring training action Friday night.

It’s the last game at Tampa for spring training. They have a game on the road Saturday (Gio Gonzalez starting) and also Sunday in Florida, then go to DC for an exhibition game against the Nationals in Washington, D.C., then have two days off before opening the season at home in the Bronx Thursday against the Orioles.

Jonathan Loaisiga showed his talent and his rawness. He pitched 4 innings, striking out 7, but gave up 2 solo HR.

Two of the Yanks’ runs scored on wild pitches.

Stanton 2 HR, 3 RBI. One HR an absolute bomb.
LeMahieu 2 hits.

Loaisiga 4 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 7 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Britton (W) 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Tarpley (H) 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Ottavino (H) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H. 0 W, 1 K
Hale 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 W, 4 K.

Cuts made today: Clint Frazier (6 for 46 in S.T. with 15 strikeouts—aftereffects from concussion problems last year?)

Also (from the NY Post): The Yankees also announced pitchers Rex Brothers, Danny Coulombe, Phillip Diehl and Drew Hutchison were re-assigned to minor league camp.

 

 

 

 

S.T. Games 22 and 23. Yanks hit 3 HR in each game, win both. Hicks to miss Opening Day.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Before we get to Sunday’s games, some news.

Kyle Higashioka sent down to AAA SWB.

Aaron Hicks will miss Opening Day. He got a second cortisone shot for his back.

This means, for a while (a week?) that Greg Bird AND Luke Voit could be on the opening day roster. Stanton would play LF, Gardner CF, Judge RF. Bird or Voit 1B, the other DH.

Rumors are the Yanks have made an offer to Gio Gonzalez, but are probably far apart. Being over the cap already, I can’t see the offer being substantive, and Gio made $12MM last year. My guess is that the Yanks probably offered half of that to cover themselves in case Severino has more issues and cannot come back in May.

Ok, the Yanks won BOTH split squad games today, hitting 3 HR in each game. So they are 13-6-4 for spring training.

Game 22. Yanks beat Phillies, 7-3.

Troy Tulowitzki 2 hits, a 2-run HR.
Greg Bird solo HR.
Gleyber Torres solo HR.
Tyler Wade 2 hits, 2 SB
Matt Lipka 2 for 2, 2 SB

Great outing for James Paxton. Not so for Chad Green.

Paxton 4 1/3, 1 R, 0 H, 2 W, 4 K.
Green (BS)  2/3 IP, 2 R, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Betances (W) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Kahnle (H) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Coulombe 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
A. Severino 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 2 K.

Game 23. Yanks beat Orioles, 5-3.

Jonathan Loaisiga needed a good outing to keep up with Luis Cessa and Domingo German as far as filling in for Luis Severino and CC Sabathia in April. He provided it.

Kyle Holder 2 hits, RBI
Miguel Andujar solo HR.
Luke Voit 2 -run HR (the competition remains good and fierce between him and Bird).
Higashioka 2 hits.
Zack Zehner 2 hits, solo HR.

Loaisiga (W) 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Hale (H) 3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Hutchison (H) 2 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 1 W, 0 K. Gave up 1 HR
Brothers (S) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K.

S.T. Game 18. Yanks and Phils tie, 5-5.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks and Phillies tied last night 5-5. It is the Yanks third tie of spring training. They are 9-6-3.

Phillip Diehl couldn’t hold a 5-4 lead in the top of the ninth.

Luke Voit singled in a run in the first. The Yanks wasted an opportunity for more runs, since they only scored that one run despite getting four hits.

Masahiro Tanaka got out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the second without giving up a run.

Brett Gardner plated a run with a SF in the bottom of the second to put the Yanks up 2-0.

But in the fourth, Tanaka gave up a HR to Realmuto to cut the lead to 2-1. After a single and two outs, his day was done, but Chad Green gave up a 2-run HR to Kingery, the first batter he faced, and the Phils were up 3-2.

The Phils, aided by a catcher’s interference call on Gary Sanchez, made it 4-2 in the fifth, but Aaron Judge threw out a runner at the plate or the Phils would have had another run.

The Yanks took the lead with three in the sixth. Giancarlo Stanton homered to cut the lead to 4-3. Luke Voit walked, went to second on a groundout and to third on a WP. Sanchez walked and Greg Bird singled in a run to tie the game. Gio Urshela singled to load the bases and when Tyler Wade walked, the Yanks had a 5-4 lead.

But in the ninth, Diehl gave up back-to-back singles, got an out, then gave up a walk to load the bases. A WP tied the game. A walk reloaded the bases, but then Diehl got a force at home and a fly out to end the inning.

The Yanks did get 2nd and 3rd with one out in the bottom of the ninth but coudn’t score.

Stanton 2 hits, solo HR.
Voit 1 for 3 RBI
Bird 1 for 2 RBI Interesting 1B Battle.
Urshela 2 hits

Tanaka 3 2/3 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 0 W, 6 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Green (BS) 1/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Ottavino 1 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Kahnle 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Hutchison 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Diehl (BS) 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 W, 1 K.

The Orioles will be starting Alex Cobb against Tanaka on Opening Day, March 28.

Catcher John Romano, an All-Star catcher for Cleveland in 1961 and 1962, passed away at the age of 84. He played with the White Sox 1958-1959 and was the backup C on the Go-Go AL pennant winning White Sox team of 1959. He was with Cleveland 1960-1964, back with the White Sox 1965-1966 and ended his career by playing briefly with the Cardinals in 1967. A .255 career hitter with an OPS+ of 122, he hit 20 or more HR in both 1961 and 1962 and finished 24th in MVP voting in 1961. He was 0 for 1 as a PH in the 1959 WS.

S.T. Game 9 (Away game of S/S). Voit homers but Yanks lose, 5-2.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks had a split squad today. For the sake of clarification, I made the home game S.T. Game 8 and the away game S.T. Game 9.

This is the away game, which the Yanks lost 5-2 to Toronto. They are 4-4-1 this spring training so far.

Luke Voit hit a solo HR.

D.J. LeMahieu had an RBI single.

Domingo German pitched well.

German 2 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 4 K.
Coulombe 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up HR (to ex-Yank Billy McKinney)
Hutchison 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Stephan (L, BS) 1 1/3 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 H, 1 W, 0 K. Gave up HR.
Coshow 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.

Second bad outing for Stephan.
