The minors.

I was underwhelmed and not thrilled with the Yanks’ moves at the trade deadline yesterday. You can read my previous post for my opinion(s).

One thing I didn’t mention in that post is that there is a 27-year-old Cuban defector, Rusneys Castillo, who each team is looking at. The speedy OF is a righty-hitter who has good opposite-field power. The Yanks sent four scouts to look at him and many other teams are after him too. Estimates say it’ll take $30-$45 million to sign him. Jay-Z is his agent, which may or may not be a good thing (think Cano). So we’ll see if the Yanks are in play for him. Despite the Prado acquisition, getting someone in their prime like Castillo would be a plus.

AAA: Scott Sizemore was released. SWB won 8-4. Bruce Billings 1 R in 6 IP. Pirela and Refsnyder at it again (I wanted both called up. Instead the Yanks went out and got Drew and Prado). LF Pirela (.313) 3 hits, single, double, triple. Refsnyder, who now will concentrate solely on 2B, 2 hits, 2 RBI (.301 at AAA after .342 at AA). 2 hits, solo HR for C John Ryan Murphy.

AA: 2-1 win for Trenton. 6 2/3 shutout innings, with 8 K for hitting coach Kevin Long’s son Jaron (4-0, 2.73 at AA). RF Jake Cave 2 hits, 2B Casey Stevenson 2 h, rbi.

High A: 3B Eric Jagiello 2 h, rbi as Tampa lost 7-3.

Low A: Charleston lost 1-0, getting (and giving up) just three hits. DH Tyler Wade 2 hits. Chaz Hebert the tough-luck loser, 7 IP, 1 R (unearned), 2 H.

The minors.

AAA: SWB won 3-1. Bryan Mitchell 7 scoreless IP, 3 H, 6 K.

AA: Trenton won 7-3. A good outing for Manny Banuelos. 4 IP, 1 R (unearned) 0 H, 1 walk and 2 k. CF Jake Cave 3 h, triple, HR, 3 rbi. 2 h, HR, 2 rbi 2B Casey Stevenson.

High A: A 6-4 Tampa win. 1st round draft pick Jacob Lindgren with 1 2/3 IP of relief. 4 of his 5 outs were strikeouts. The 21-year-old lefty has pitched 13 innings so far, 27 K, 5 walks. 1 R on 5 hits. 2 doubles, 2 rbi for 3B Dante Bichette, Jr. Jose Rosario (Cf/2B) 2 hits, 2 rbi. 2 hits and one rbi for both 1B Danny Oh and LF Anderson Feliz.

Minors. Trenton wins Game 1.

Trenton won the first game of its playoff series by scoring 3 in the bottom of the 10th after giving up 2 in the top half. They win 6-5.

Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte gave up the runs but was saved by the rally.

All three runs scored after two were out in the 10th. Jose Pirela doubled, Gary Sanchez singled him home, and singles by Tyler Austin, Casey Stevenson (tie) and Ben Gamel (game winner) won it.

Pirela and Austin had 3 hits each. 2 doubles, 2 rbi for Austin. 2 h, 2 RBI for Gamel.

AAA: Derek Jeter starts his rehab Saturday night for SWB. I want to see if maybe I can go up Sunday afternoon to catch him (depends on if tickets are still available). We’ll see. As for tomorrow (Sat.) night, not only is Jeter there but Pineda is scheduled to start.

As for tonight’s game, SWB won 3-2, getting a run in the bottom of the 9th to win it. Jose Ramirez 2 R, 2 H, 2 walks and 6 K in 5 IP. Chase Whitley 3 scoreless and hitless innings with 4K. C J.R. Murphy 2 RBI, inc. the GW SF.
