BBDP June 5th: Nova doesn’t want to stay in Triple-A long 5


Walt IbarraBBD MVP: Walt Ibarra: 2/4, HR (.500)

Triple-A RailRiders: W 8-0 vs Syracuse. W: Nova (1-0) S: Huff (1)

Thomas Neal: 1/4, 2B, BB, K (.331)
Zoilo Almonte: 1/4, R, BB, 2 K (.279)
Ronnier Mustelier: 1/4, R, K (.301)
Melky Mesa: 1/4, R, K (.258)
Addison Maruszak: 1/4, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.245)
Walt Ibarra: 2/4, 2 R, HR (1), 2 RBI (.500)
Ivan Nova: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K (0.00 ERA) I do not believe Ivan Nova is a AAAA player. I think he’s better than that. I do think playing down here for a bit is going to be a good thing for him though, much like it has been in the past. He’s got to get back to what got him to the show to begin with.
David Huff: 3.0, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 K (3.62 ERA)

Double-A Trenton: W 10-6 at Binghamton. W: Mikey O’Brien (4-0)

Ramon “Ray-Flo” Flores: 2/4, 2 R, BB, K (.249) Good to see him get a multi-hit game.
Slade Heathcott: 2/5, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI, K (.250) Hard to believe he was batting in the .100’s not too long ago.
“Stone Cold” Tyler Austin: 3/4, 2 R, RBI, BB (.262) Here he comes. 14 for his last 40 (.350) with three homers and three doubles in his last 10 games.
JR Murphy: 0/4, 2 R, BB (.268) Hitting a slow patch, seven for his last 39 (.179)
Kyle Roller: 2/5, 2 RBI, K (.263)
Mikey O’Brien: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 6 ER, BB, 4 K, 2 HR (3.71)  Yes, that line did get him his fourth win.
Francisco Rondon: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 3 BB, K (6.42 ERA)
Graham Stoneburner: 1.1 IP, H, 0 ER, BB (2.57 ERA)
Tommy Kahnle: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER (1.78 ERA)

High-A Tampa: L 6-3 vs Palm Beach. L: Greene (4-6)

Angelo Gumbs: 2/5, R (.242)
Ben Gamel: 0/4 (.267)
Carmen Angelini: 1/4, K (.330)
Gary Sanchez: 1/4, 2B, 2 RBI (.278)
Rober Refsnyder: 0/4, K (.287)
Shane Greene: 6.1 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, BB, 2 K (3.63 ERA)
Branden Pinder: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER (0.00 ERA) Demoted, man that sucks.
Charley Short: 1.0 IP, H, 0 ER, 3 K (1.42 ERA)

Charleston: suspended due to rain vs Greenville.

DSL Highlights: Simon De La Rosa struck out eight in four innings.

Tomorrow’s Starters: Wang, Matt Tracy, Sean Black, Rafael DePaula. Charleston’s game will be made up tomorrow.

Tomorrow is draft day! Get excited!

    Is there any chance Nova will be a 2 starter anymore or a very good three? i don't think so.

  • Jimmy

    And what of the bouncing back and forth Vidal Nuno, who has given the Yanks two great starts?
