Minor Leagues Report — By on August 25, 2012 9:27 pm

Scranton:

Lost to Lehigh Valley, 9-5.

*Austin Romine: *1-for-2, 2 RBI, 2 BB – 9-for-38 with Scranton *Eduardo Nunez: *3-for-5, RBI, RS – Has five multi-hit games (four of which are 3-hit games) in last eight starts. *Corban Joseph: *1-for-3, 2 RS, 2 BB – Maybe lost in his power surge is the 50 walks in 78 games. He has struck out 52 times. *Brandon Laird: *2-for-5, 2B (31), RBI

*Chase Whitley: *2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (3.46 ERA; 75.1 IP, 59 H, 30 R, 29 ER, 7 HR, 25 BB, 64 K) – Fastball-Changeup-Slider pitcher had a few bumps along the way this year, but that may be attributed to the fact that he was working on fine-tuning his third best pitch (the slider). He’s been effective vs. both righties and lefties. Not a prototypical power reliever, but has the potentially to be a good one. ———————— Trenton:

Lost to Akron, 4-3.

*David Adams: *2-for-4, 2B (22), HR (7), 2 RBI, 2 RS – Perhaps Magic Johnson wants to make a deal for an overpriced third baseman while heisat it? Adams is now at .316/.392/.456 and really has nothing more to prove here – he’ll be in Triple-A next year, where he should be to continue to learn how to play third. A *JR Murphy: *1-for-3, RS, BB – .243/.319/.452 in 115 AB for Trenton. Did I mention 100 or so times that he is a 21-year old catcher? *Addison Maruszak: *2-for-4, RBI

*Shaeffer Hall: * 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 0 K, 1 HR (3.56 ERA; 159.1 IP, 172 H, 75 R, 63 ER, 14 HR, 38 BB, 97 K) – Simply put, for him to have any success at any level, he can’t be walking four batters in a game. Heck, two or three in a game may be too much. ———————– Tampa:

For the second night in a row, they split a DH vs. Daytona. Given that this is the Florida State League, they may not be playing for a few days after tonight.

*Gary Sanchez: *2-for-3, 2 RBI – .290/.348/.455 with Tampa; .294/.351/.495 overall with 81 runs batted in. *Ramon Flores: *2-for-6, RBI, BB – Now hitting an even .300 on the season. OBP has been hovering in the .370 range. Very intrigued by what he will do in Trenton. *Slade Heathcott: *1-for-6, RS, BB, SB (16) *Tyler Austin: *1-for-4, RS, 3 BB, SB (6) *Kyle Roller: *1-for-4, RS, 2 BB

*Zach Nuding: *5.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 6 BB, 2 K (3.57 ERA; 80.2 IP, 79 H, 36 R, 32 ER, 3 HR, 24 BB, 63 K) – Huge right-hander (6’4″, 250 is what he is listed at – but he may be even bigger), Nuding throws extremely hard (can hit the upper 90s) and is working on his breaking stuff. Used mostly as a starter thus far, Nuding is pretty much a guarantee to move to the bullpen, where we should see a spike in those K rates. *Branden Pinder: *1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 1 K (2.88 ERA; 65.2 IP, 68 H, 26 R, 21 ER, 1 HR, 29 BB, 65 K) – 1.50 ERA with 29/12 K-BB ratio in 30 IP since All-Star Break.

*Caleb Cotham: *4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K (4.25 ERA; 59.1 IP, 67 H, 30 R, 28 ER, 2 HR, 21 BB, 42 K) *Nick Goody: *1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K – Debut in Tampa after dominating (putting it lightly) in Staten Island and Charleston. Had a 0.98 ERA with a 45/8 K-BB ratio in 28 IP. 2012 draftee who is already moving fast. *Rich Mascheri: *0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K – 23-year old left-hander has allowed one hit in four games, covering 4.1 innings since joining the Yankees after spending most of the season playing for the Normal Cornbelters in the Independent League. ———————- Charleston:

Defeated Lexington 1-0 in 10 innings.

*Dante Bichette: *1-for-4, 2B (22) *Ali Castillo: *2-for-3, 2B (18), RBI

*Corey Black: * 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K (4.82 ERA; 18.2 IP, 16 H, 10 R, 10 ER, 0 HR, 5 BB, 22 K) – Generating grounders and strikeouts. 4th round pick in 2012 draft. *Pedro Guerra: *1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K (1.67 ERA; 54 IP, 34 H, 10 R, 10 ER, 2 HR, 16 BB, 59 K) ——————— Staten Island:

11-0 loss to Brooklyn.

*Ravel Santana: *1-for-3, BB – .237/.313/.317 in 186 AB *Greg Bird: *1-for-3 in Staten Island debut. Hit .286/.419/.367 for the GCL squad in 49 AB. 19-year old has been seemingly converted from catcher to first base, and this has been his first taste of professional ball. Expect to see him playing a “full” season for one of the short-season leagues (GCL or for Staten Island) in 2013.

*Gabriel Encinas: *6.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 2 K (5.40 ERA; 61.2 IP, 66 H,45 R, 37 ER, 36 BB, 39 K) – 6th round pick in 2010.
