BBDP June 11th: Jake Cave goes off in double header

Peninsula Pilots' Jake CaveBBDP MVP: Jake Cave – 4/7, HR, 2B

Eric Jagielo is in Tampa, which hopefully means he’ll sign soon. Aaron Judge thinks he will sign soon as well. Ian Clarkin can’t legally sign until he graduates high school, but the Yankees are confident that they will sign him once that happens.

Tyler Wade (4th round), David Palladino (5th round), John Murphy (6th round), Cale Coshow (13th round), Jordan Barnes (15th round), Derek Toadvine (22nd round), Sam Agnew-Wieland, and Kevin Cornelius (31st round) are all either signed or in Tampa and expected to sign soon.

Kosuke Katoh expects that a deal will be done by next week.

Chase Whitley: 2.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, K, HR (5.4 ERA) Still trying to get it going, hasn’t been the same since returning from injury.

Game Two: W 6-2 vs Buffalo. W: Betances (4-3)

Thomas Neal: 2/3, R, RBI (.339)
Zoilo Almonte: 1/3, R, RBI, K (.282)

Ramon Flores: 2/5 (.246)
Slade Heathcott: 1/4, 2B, BB, K (.242)
Tyler Austin: 1/5, 3 K (.268)
JR Murphy: 1/5 (.268)
Kyle Roller: 3/5, 2 R, 2 HR (9), 3 RBI (.269) Hitting as well as anyone in the system this season.
Carmen Angelini: 1/4, R, BB, K (.250) His first start in Double-A. Good for him for getting a legitimate second look.

Jeremy Bleich: 2.0 IP, H, 0 ER, 3 K (3.38 ERA)

High-A Tampa: W 6-2 at Charlotte. W: De La Cruz

Robert Refsnyder: 1/2, R, 2 BB (.291) Getting hot again. 12 for his last 33 (.364) with four walks and a .432 OBP. At this rate with no one in Double-A blocking him he could be with Trenton by the end of the season.
Ben Gamel: 3/4, R, 3B, RBI, CS (3) (.283) After slumping for a good portion of the season he has caught fire again. Four consecutive multi-hit games.

Greg Bird: 1/3, R, HR (5), RBI, K (.269)
Peter O’Brien: 0/3 (.328) I guess he can’t hit a homer every game.
Dante Bichette Jr.: 0/2, BB, E (10) (.215) He’s turning into a sad story. His confidence must be shot.
Jake Cave: 1/3 (.231)
Reymond Nunez: 1/3 (.261)
Cesar Vargas: 4.0 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (3.61 ERA)

  1. Love that tweet from Ty Hensley. Also, I'm getting excited on nights when De Paula pitches.

      Me too. I am rarely inclined to comment on anything on twitter, but I commented on his tweet. I thought that it was inappropriate for a grown man like Axisa to make a comment like that about a kid like Hensley. Almost like he was picking a fight.
