BBDP August 14th: Adams with monster day in Trenton

BBDP MVP: David Adams – 3/4, 2 2B, HR (6), 2 RBI

According to Kendall Rogers, the Yankees signed undrafted free agent Daniel Aldrich out of College of Charleston, also Brett Gardner’s alma mater. He’s a high power, high strikeout kind of hitter who played well in the Cape Cod League. Low risk, high reward type of signing. He signed for at least $150,000, as the Yankees had plenty of money left over after the Ty Hensley signing.

Triple-A Empire State: L 9-7 to Pawtucket. L: John Maine

Kevin “Roose” Russo: 2/5, R, RBI, BB, K (.300)
Corban “CoJo” Joseph: 1/3, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 BB (.256)
Ed Nunez: 0/4, 2 RBI, K (.209)
Ronnier Mustelier: 0/4, BB, K (.284)
Brandon Laird: 1/4 (.252)
Francisco Cervelli: 1/4, R, K (.248)
Kelvin Perez: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 5 K (0.00 ERA) I sure hope they find a way to keep him next year. He’s due to be a minor league free agent after this season. This season was his coming out party, and his stuff improved by leaps and bounds. 1.05 ERA between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

Double-A Trenton: L 2-7 vs Reading. L: O’Brien (4-6)

Abe Almonte: 0/3, BB, K (.276)
Jose Pirela: 1/4, R (.300) Turned a DP with Ibarra.
David Adams: 3/4, R, 2 2B, HR (6), 2 RBI (.322) DHed today, can’t wait to see him in Triple-A.
Adonis Garcia: 0/4 (.317)
Luke Murton: 0/3, BB, 2 K (.251)
JR Murphy: 0/4, K (.220)
Rob “Seggy” Segedin: 1/3 (.200)
Walt Ibarra: 1/3, K (.283)
Addison Maruszak: 0/3, 2 K(.274)
Mikey O’Brien: 6 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 4 ER, BB, 5 K (4.57) Rough go of it in Double-A this season.
Francisco Rondon: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, K, HR (3.95 ERA)
Mark “Monty Python” Montgomery: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 K (2.57 ERA) Beast.

High-A Tampa: L 0-4 vs Clearwater. L: Tracy (5-5)

Ramon Flores: 0/3, BB, K (.293)
Slade Heathcott: 1/4, 3 K (.303) 11 game hit streak going.
“Stone Cold” Tyler Austin: 2/4, 2B (.299) I don’t care what Josh Norris’ scouts notes say this kid is the real deal.
Kyle Roller: 0/1, K (.270)
Gary “Sanchize” Sanchez: 2/3, 2B, BB, K (.288)
Matt Tracy: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 K (3.29 ERA) Let up three runs in the first, then settled in to pitch a solid game.

Low-A Charleston: L 2-5 vs Asheville. L: Wetherell (5-7)

Ali Castillo: 1/4, R, HR (4), RBI, K (.326)
Cito Culver: 0/4, K (.226) One scout was less than impressed with him according to Josh Norris. Said he would never hit.
Ben “Gam-Gam” Gamel: 2/4, R, 2B (.300)
Dante Bichette Jr.: 1/4, RBI (.241)
Saxon Butler: 2/4 (.258)
Robert “The Ref” Refsnyder: 1/3 (.198)
Daniel Mahoney: 2 IP, H, 0 ER, BB (3.63 ERA)
Charlie Short: 2 IP, H, 0 ER, 3 K (1.23 ERA) Looking like a good find so far.

GCL Yankees: L 8-2 vs GCL Pirates. L: Gallegos (0-1). They also lost their game from last night, giving up two runs for the loss in the bottom of the ninth.

Mikeson Oliberto: 1/4, R, 2B, K (.261)
Austin Aune: 1/3, RBI, BB, K (.275)
Yeicok Calderon: 1/4, 2 K (.258)
Greg Bird: 0/4 (.250)
Miguel Andujar: 0/4, 2 K (.234) He’ll have lots of things to work on this offseason. Good thing he’s SO YOUNG (17).
Nathan Mikolas: 1/3 (.162)
Eduardo de Oleo: 0/2, R, BB (.189)
Pedro Feliciano: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, K (0.00 ERA) Second rehab appearance.
Giavanny Gallegos: 3 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 5 ER, HR (2.05 ERA) Little explosion here, hopefully it’s just an anomaly.
Chaz Hebert: 0.2 IP, H, R, ER, 2 BB, K (1.64 ERA)
Rookie Davis: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 K (2.03 ERA) Knight in shining armour for the GCL tonight.

    ugh swept across the farm system. Good to see Adams is still raking though

  2. Greg Corcoran says:

    Agreed. It always eases the pain when the big league club wins too

  3. tom says:

    Daniel Aldrich is signed with Yankees for 150k? I thought Yankees maxed out budget plus 75% overage tax when they signed both Hensley and Mesa Jr. How much signing bonus does Mesa Jr. sign for?

    • No, the Yankees saved a lot of money by signing Hensley for $400K under slot and then they saved a lot more when they signed picks 6-10 at just $10K each. So $150K to Aldrich shouldn't put them over.

  4. Matt_DC says:

    Great to see Heathcott showing some consistency

    • Greg Corcoran says:

      It's huge. In a relatively down year on the farm, having him do what he's done is a major saving grace.
