BBD MVP: Reymond Nunez – 2/4, HR, 4 RBI
Curtis Granderson: 3/5, R, K (.412) Only a matter of time before he’s with the Yankees. It will be interesting to see how that changes the roles of Brett Gardner, Vernon Wells, and Ichiro.
Zoilo Almonte: 0/4, BB, K (.272)
David Adams: 1/4, 2 R, HR (3), BB, K (.311) Must be happy about the news that the Yankees intend to promote him on Wednesday.
Dan Johnson: 1/2, R, HR (3), 3 RBI, BB (.198)
Thomas Neal: 2/5, K (.343) Poor guy had bad injury timing. Granderson is back now so that’s a crowded major league outfield.
Melky Mesa: 1/4, 2 K (.252)
Kelvin Perez: 2.0 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, BB, 3 K (10.8 ERA). Tough outing, I’ll give him a pass since he was forced into starting today.
Mark Montgomery: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (1.45 ERA) No reason to think he can’t be a productive major leaguer with the numbers he has put up in Triple-A.
Double-A Trenton: L 4-0 vs New Hampshire. L: Ramirez (0-1)
Ramon Flores: 0/4, 2 K (.262) Still slowing down, hopefully he can get back to what he was doing early in the season.
Jose Pirela: 1/4 (.226) Not replicating last year’s success so far. Can’t say I’m surprised.
Tyler Austin: 1/4, K (.260)
Kyle Roller: 2/3, 2 2B, BB, K (.306) Really putting together a solid hitting year.
Slade Heathcott: 0/3, 2 K (.204)
Jose Ramirez: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 9 K, HR (1.42 ERA). He’s a beast. No doubt in my mind he’ll be a top 100 guy by the end of the season.
Francisco Rondon: 1.0 IP, 0 ER, BB (7.67 ERA) Back where he’s comfortable.
Tommy Kahnle: 1.0 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 3 K (2.35 ERA). Perfect inning. The future of this bullpen is looking bright, and cheap.
Low-A Charleston: W 9-8 vs Hickory. W: Rutckyj (4-2) S: Wetherell (1)
Taylor Dugas: 2/5, R (.265) So far he hasn’t replicated last year’s success.
Cito Culver: 0/3, BB, K (.212)
Greg Bird: 1/4, R, 3B, 2 RBI (.282)
Dante Bichette Jr: 0/3, R, K (.173) Many have given up on him. I haven’t just yet. If by the end of the season he is still struggling this much, I will be more inclined to move on.
Peter O’Brien: 2/4, 2 R, 2B, RBI, K (.303) 12 for his last 32 (.375) with three doubles.
Reymond Nunez: 2/4, R, HR (3), 4 RBI (.308) Are we seeing the maturation of a power hitter? Only time will tell. 10 for his last 27 (.370) with three homeruns in his last seven games. He’s old for his level but he still has plenty of time to develop.
Evan Rutckyj: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, BB, 6 K, 2 HR (5.22 ERA)
Ben Paullus: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, BB, 2 K, HR (3.15 ERA)
Phil Wetherell: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, K (3.86 ERA)
Tomorrow’s starters: Stoneburner, Bryan Mitchell, Camarena
