Yankees Notes: Streaks, Montero, and MiLB Playoffs

The Yankees have an off-day after finishing up a 10-game homestand with a victory against the Orioles to avoid their first sweep at the new Yankee Stadium. They were 7-3 during the homestand. They will fly into Texas, with Jorge Posada, to start a nine game road trip.

Here are some notes:

  • Alex Rodriguez went 3-for-8 (.375) with a home run after returning from the DL.
  • Lance Berkman is 8-for-16 (.500) with a pair of doubles since returning from the DL.
  • Francisco Cervelli, who is likely to get a lot more playing time with Posada’s concussion, is 8-for-32 (.250) over the past 30 days.
  • Nick Swisher is 9-for-33 (.273) with a .970 OPS and 3 homers in 10 games since fouling a ball off his knee.
  • Derek Jeter went 5-for-32 (.156) in 8 games during the latest homestand.
  • Boone Logan has 22 consecutive scoreless appearances. That ties Mariano Rivera for the Yankees third longest streak since 1920.
  • Jesus Montero missed last night’s game with a lower leg infection, he’s day-to-day.
  • His team, the Triple-A Scranton Yankees, lost 6-4 against Columbus in the first game of the playoffs.
  • The Double-A Trenton Thunder won 2-0 behind a 5.2 IP, 0 ER performance by Dellin Betances, he had 8 K’s and 1 BB.
  • The High-A Tampa Yankees beat Dunedin 7-0 yesterday to advance to the FSL Championship Series starting Friday.

That’s all for now, we’ll have more updates throughout the day though, so keep checking back.
