Minor League UpdatesPosted: April 10, 2011
As I mentioned in one of my posts from Thursday, the minor league seasons have started for Triple A Scranton, Double A Trenton, High-A Tampa, and Low-A Charleston. Here’s an update on how they are doing (something I will do every Sunday):
Jesus Montero- .400/.400/.700, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Hector Noesi- 5.0 IP, 3.60 ERA, 2.20 WHIP (as Mike of RAB points out, a little too hittable with that high WHIP)
David Phelps- 4.1 IP, 10.38 ERA, 1.85 WHIP
Adam Warren will get the start today.
Here’s a clip of Jesus Montero’s home run (via SIH):
Melky Mesa- .231/.286/.308 (needs more discipline at the plate)
Austin Romine- .167/.286/.167
Steve Garrison- 4.0 IP, 0.00 ERA, 0.75 WHIP
Dellin Betances is starting today and Manny Banuelos will start tomorrow.
Abe Almonte- .357/.357/.714, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Zoilo Almonte- .154/.154/.231 (one scout I talked to expects a big year out of this guy)
Brett Marshall- 4.0 IP, 13.50 ERA, 1.75 WHIP
Mark Prior- One perfect inning
Jose Ramirez gets the start today.
Slade Heathcott- .429/.400/1.143, 2 HR, 6 RBI (former first round pick, every one expecting big things)
Gary Sanchez- .250/.308/.583, 1 HR, 2 RBI (the third big catcher)
JR Murphy- .231/.231/.692, 2 HR, 3 RBI (when he hits the ball, it goes far)
Shane Greene- 6.0 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0.00 ERA, 0.67 WHIP, 1 W
Kramer Sneed gets the ball today.
