BBDP August 28th: Extra innings galore!

ROOKIE DAVIS1BBD MVP: Rookie Davis – 5.0 IP, 0 ER, 6 K

Triple-A SWB: W 5-4 vs Lehigh Valley. W: Daley (1-2) Won this one in the bottom of the 12th.

David Adams: 1/5, BB, K (.269) Just not himself this year.
JR Murphy: 3/6, 4 R, 2 2B, HR (5), RBI, 2 K (.270) Been a real breakout year for him. That’s 11 HR on the season.
Ronnier Mustelier: 3/6, R, 2 2B, 2 K (.268) He’s looking like a possible September call up.
Adonis Garcia: 2/5, 2 RBI, CS, PO (.267)
Caleb Cotham: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, BB, 2 K (4.66 ERA)

Double-A Trenton: W 9-8 vs New Britain. W: Short (2-0). They won this in dramatic fashion by scoring two runs in both the bottom of the 11th and the bottom of the 12th for the win.

Mason Williams: 0/6, R, K (.143) Dreadful start to Double-A for him, but he hasn’t had nearly enough time to adjust.
Ramon Flores: 3/6, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI, K (.252) Big game for Ray-Flo
Gary Sanchez: 2/6, R, RBI, K (.250) Double-A is said to be the hardest transition on the path to the majors, and he’s holding his own. He walked off with a 2 run single.
Kyle Roller: 2/5, R, HR (16), 3 RBI, K (.253)
Ben Gamel: 2/4, R, RBI, BB (.220)
Scottie Allen: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K (1.59 ERA) I don’t know what’s gotten into him but he’s had a solid season.
Pat Venditte: 2.0 IP, H, 0 ER, 2 K (3.60 ERA) Hey! My favorite switch pitcher is back!
Danny Burawa: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 K (2.67 ERA)
Tommy Kahnle: 2.0 IP, H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K (2.58 ERA)
Charley Short: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, K (6.00 ERA) Blew the game twice but did get the win.

High-A Tampa: Double Header

Game One: W 2-0 vs Clearwater. W: Bautista (1-0), SV: Garrison (8)

Cito Culver: 0/2, BB, K (.289)
Taylor Dugas: 1/3, CS (6), PO (.292) Pretty much did what he was expected to do this year. Hit for average and get on base.
Robert Refsnyder: 0/2, BB, 2 K (.285) Far exceeded expectations this season. A strong finish will put him in the convo for Trenton next year.
Peter O’Brien: 0/3 (.249) More about him in game two.
Dan Fiorito: 1/3, SB (6) (.281) If you know his story you know he’s a guy who has exceeded expectations all his life. He’s a long shot but I’m rootin’.
Rony Bautista: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K (0.00 ERA). Don’t get too excited, they do this with GCL guys sometimes when they need guys. Still, impressive outing.
Taylor Garrison: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, K (1.87 ERA) He’ll look good in that Trenton bullpen next year.

Game Two: W 2-0 vs Clearwater in “extra innings” (double headers are supposed to be seven innings in the MILB, this one was nine) W: Smith (2-2)

Cito Culver: 2/4, 2B, CS (1), K (.310). He’s been really good since the promo. Something is clicking with him and he is in no way a lost cause.
Rob Refsnyder: 1/4, R (.285)
Peter O’Brien: 1/4, R, HR (10), 2 RBI, K (.249). Defnitely slumping, but that’s his 21st homer of the season.
Dan Fiorito: 0/3 (.278)
Branden Pinder: 4.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K (3.49 ERA) Sort of a lost season for Pinder, but hopefully he can recapture the magic next year.

Low-A Charleston: L 1-2 vs Greenville. L: Brebbia (0-2) This one also went to extras (11 innings)

Jake Cave: 1/4, R, 3B, BB, SB (17) (.285) In his first full season he more than held his own. Now let’s develop some power.
Greg Bird: 0/3, 2 BB, 2 K (.289) Walks number 99 and 100 on the season. Last person to do that as a minor leaguer… Nick the stick.
Ericson Leonora: 0/4, K (.307)
Reymond Nunez: 1/5, 2B (.260)
Rookie Davis: 5.0 IP, 8 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K (0.00 ERA) Excellent debut for Davis. I’m tellin ya he’s next year’s Encinas.

Short Season Staten Island: W 3-2 vs Vermont. W: Beresford (3-2)

Eric Jagielo: 0/3, BB, K (.267)
Brandon Thomas: 0/4, 2 K (.214)
Bubba Jones: 1/3, 2B, K (.285)
Tyler Wade: 0/3, 2 K (.000) Not sure where Avelino is, but I hope he’s not going to the DL.
Connor Kendrick: 4.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K (4.24 ERA)
Dillon McNamara: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (2.19 ERA)

GCL Yankees1: W 3-2 vs GCL Blue Jays

W: Aquino (3-4)

Gosuke Katoh: 2/4, R, SB (4) (.315) Seems like he’s always doing something to help the team win.
Austin Aune: 1/4, 2 K (.191) This has been a disaster season for him.
Renzo Martini: 0/4, 2 K (.273)
Dustin Fowler: 0/3, BB, 2 K, SB (2) (.248) Not doing too bad considering he was just drafted. I’ll give him a couple of years before I make any real judgments.
Nestor Cortes: 3.1 IP, 4 H, ER, BB, 3 K (4.42 ERA) Not a bad outing. Next year will be fun to see what this kid can do.

GCL Yankees2: L 0-5 vs GCL Astros. L: Garcia (1-3)

Thairo Estrada: 0/4, 3 K (.283) Probably his worst game of the season.
Miguel Anduar: 0/3, BB, 2 K (.318) Small hiccup in an otherwise breakout season. Should be somewhere on the list of top prospects in this league.
Nathoan Mikolas: 0/4, K (.260) This whole lineup was bad tonight, but Mikolas has been pretty good lately and may have opened some eyes this year.
Luis Torrens: 1/3, K (.246) His stats have been disappointing, but don’t forget Miguel Andujar had a similar performance last year.
Drew Bridges: 0/4, 2 K (.153) First taste of pro baseball, first taste of wood bats. I’ll hold judgment until next year.
Omar Luis: 5.0 IP, H, 0 ER, BB, 8 K (5.68 ERA) Just five earned runs in his last five starts, all in one game. His ERA is 2.5 during that time and he has struck out 25 batters over 18 innings during that time. He’s looking a lot more like the guy the Yankees payed $4 million for now.

    Mason Williams has really looked over matched in Trenton. His defense has been spectacular, but he's struck out a bunch and just does not look ready for AA. I think it was a hasty move calling him up this year after Austin and Heathcott went down. Hopefully this doesn't have a long-term impact on his confidence.

    So far, I haven't been overly impressed with Sanchez, but he has shown good signs. He still has a lot of work to do on defense, regardless of what has been said. The amount of balls he's let by him and foul tips he hasn't held on to are just unacceptable. He has shown a very solid arm and ability to read situations very well though.

    On the bright side, Venditte has looked very good for the Thunder. He throws a little harder right handed, but throws really good sliders from both sides and has been impressive in big situations. He looks like he may be able to defy the odds and contribute at the big league level someday.

    • Steve Chance says:

      Dropped foul tips…? Really? You do realize that is you catch a foul tip it's just luck, right?

      • Jason says:

        Youre actually wrong. It's luck for foul tips to go to the glove, but to actually hold onto the ball requires skill.

    what happens to a guy like Vidal Nuno?

    • gcorcoran says:

      Depends on his 40 man roster status I believe. If he stays on the 40 man I believe they can keep him. If I'm mistaken then they'd have to keep him on the 25 man roster. I think they'll keep him around though because he's a very useful player.

    and thanks Greg…the article was a gem…

  4. Michael R says:

    As a long time former catcher who dropped his share of potential foul tips I can assure you that catching one is no more or less difficult than catching a knuckle ball. Less movement but greater speed which makes it impossible for the catcher to adjust. That being said, some catchers are better at it than others, but it isn't a skill that can practiced. Over time he'll get better.

    You guys should change your site name to bronxbaseballweekly.com. I used to come here all the time because you guys are good, but I find myself contemplating removing you from my favorites due to the lack of updates. I hope you step it up soon.

  6. Michael R. says:

    Me too.

    Today has doubtless been a fairly dismal day for Nintendo staff, shareholders and fans alike. As we tend to discovered earlier within the day, Nintendo ar financially not during a smart place. With Satoru Iwata later adding that he has no intention of stepping down. Nintendo Feed takes a moment to explore Nintendo's options currently, wherever is the manner forward? Nintendo have to be compelled to induce some pretty forceful change.
