BBDP April 16th: Turley bird and Jose Campos strut their stuff

Triple-A Empire State: L 3-5 to Rochester. L: Betances (0-2)

Kevin Russo: 1/3, R, BB (.278)
Colin Curtis: 1/4, RBI, 2 K (.270)
Dewayne Wise: 2/2 (.500). He’s really smoking the ball. For some reaosn Kruml took his place 2 at bats in. I’m not sure why.
Brandon Laird: 2/4, K (.233). Starting to pick it up a bit.
Francisco Cervelli: 1/4, R, 2B, K (.094). Nice to see him get a hit today. He also threw 2/3 runners out.
Ramiro Pena also had a HR today (1/4)
Dellin Betances: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 4 K (10.38 ERA). Yet another very bad outing. He really has to start gaining some control of his stuff. You can have all the stuff in the world, but if you can’t throw strikes, you will go the way of Andrew Brackman. He’s better than Brackman though.
Kevin Whelan: 1 IP, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (1.8 ERA).

Double-A Trenton: W 6-3 vs Erie. W: Shaeffer Hall (2-1) S: Claiborne (1)

Abe Almonte: 1/5, 2 R, K (.205)
Ronnier “Musketeer” Mustelier: 2/5, CS (4) (.325) He doesn’t swing and miss much, and he seems to make good contact. Probably should be more selective in his base stealing attempts though.
“Boilin” Zoilo Almonte: 2/4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K (.282)
Cody Johnson: 2/4, R, HR (4), RBI, 2 K (.393). 9 K in 8 g so far, but 4 HR. Regardless of the strikeouts, he looks really good early on. If he can cut down on those strikeouts though, the Yanks may just have something here.
Melky “Melkman 2″ Mesa: 2/4, R, HR (3), 2 RBI, K (.297). He’s quietly having a very good start to the season.
Kevin Mahoney: 1/3, R, HR (1), RBI, BB (.267)
Walt Ibarra: 0/4, K (.290)
Shaeffer Hall: 5 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, BB, K, HR (3.94 ERA). He’s 2-1 now. He seems to always turn in solid outings, although not great outings.
Preston Claiborne: 2 IP, H, 0 ER, BB, 4 K (2.25 ERA). Got his first save. He’s looked very good so far this season.

High-A Tampa: W 6-2 vs Clearwater. W: Turley (1-0)

Eddy Sosa: 3/4, 2 R, 2 RBI (.233). A well needed 3-hit game to bring the average up.
Kelvin “Castrol GTX” Castro: 2/4, R, 2B, RBI, K (.244)
Ramon “Ray-Flo” Flores: 2/4, R, 2B, RBI (.189). Also needed a multi-hit game and got it. Hopefully he can use this as a springboard.
Rob Segedin: 0/3, RBI, K (.310) Broke an 8 game hitting streak.
Kyle Roller: 0/4, K (.171)
JR Murphy: 0/4 (.212) Slumpin’
Neil Medchill: 1/3, R, 2 K (.324)
Jose “Last of the Mojicans” Mojica: 2/3, 2 R, 2B, 3B (.394). Off to a great start, but he’s old for the level, and hasn’t done much in his career up until now.
Nik “Turley Bird” Turley: 7 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 7 K (1.00 ERA). That’s his first win, he has looked downright impressive thus far. Spread six hits over seven innings, but the seven strikeouts are even more exciting.
Kramer Sneed: 1 IP, H, R, 0 ER, 0 K (0.00 ERA). Still no earned runs yet.

Low-A Charleston: W 5-1 vs Augusta: W: Campos (3-0)

Mason “Mad Mase” Williams: 2/5, SB (6) (.327) Another solid performance. Looks like Augusta may have had a bad defensive catcher, the RiverDogs stole five bases off of him.
Angelo Gumbs: 0/5, 2 K (.182)
Dante Bichette Jr.: 1/4, 2 R, BB, K (.317)
Tyler Austin: 2/4, 3 R, 3B, RBI, BB, K, SB (1) (.444). Austin continues accosting the ball. He just seems to be outclassing the pitchers at this level.
Gary “Sanchize” Sanchez: 4/5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, K, SB (2) (.385). Another guy who’s destrying the ball. Both could be promoted before long.
Ben Gamel: 1/4, RB, BB, SB (4) (.231) He’s stealing a decent number of bases considering he hasn’t been on base all that much so far.
Cito Culver: 1/4, BB, SB (2) (.128). Was that…. a hit? It was from the right side of the plate :-/
Jose Campos: 5 IP, 4 H, ER, BB, 7 K (0.56 ERA) Continues his domination of this level. What a group they have here.
Zach Varce: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 K (1.5 ERA) He has looked really good this year, that’s 7 K in 6 IP.
Ben Paullus: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 K (4.5 ERA) Good rebound from his recent rough outing.

    I'm really enjoying these round ups of the minor league games. They are very informative and I am grateful that you take your time to post them. That being said, please can it with the nicknames. They are neither funny nor clever, just irritating.
