Yankees Farm Report: July 16, 2011

Today’s notes:

  • Mason Williams was back in the lineup tonight for Staten Island which is good to see.  He was hit by a pitch a couple of days ago and was experiencing some tightness.
  • Tyler Austin was promoted from GCL to Short-Season Staten Island.
  • Mark Prior was scratched from his GCL appearance today, of course.
  • Bradley Suttle is day-to-day with arm stiffness.


Scranton 4 – Toledo 7Austin Krum, Terry Tiffee, and Luis Nunez each notched two hits, Krum drove a run in, Tiffee scored twice, and Nunez scored once and stole a base.  Jesus Montero went 1 for 3 with two walks and Jordan Parraz and Brandon Laird each went 1 for 4, Laird drove in two while Parraz drove in one.  On the hill, Lance Pendleton started and gave up two runs in four innings and walked three.  George Kontos came out of the pen and allowed four earned runs in 2.1 innings of work and JC Romero followed with 1.2 scoreless frames.  We’ll see how long it takes for him to get to the Bronx.


Reading 13 – Trenton 2Addison Maruszak homered, Austin Romine drove in a run, while Melky Mesa, Corban Joseph, and Rob Lyerly each had a hit. Lyerly actually had four errors at third base which is pretty ridiculous.  Craig Heyer may need to be moved back to the bullpen as he yielded five earned runs in five innings and walked four while striking out three.  Pat Venditte was very good in relief tossing three scoreless frames as he struck out three. But Reading blew the game wide open in the ninth exploding for six (two earned) in his0.2 innings.


Palm Beach 3 – Tampa 2Brett Marshall was fantastic giving up one unearned run in five frames while striking out five and walking one.  He also got eight grounders as opposed to one fly ball.  Ronny Marte gave up one run in 2.2 innings and Preston Claiborne allowed a run in 1.1 innings.  Kelvin Castro and Neil Medchill drove in the runs while JR Murphy and Kyler Roller scored the runs.  Roller had a hit and walked and Murphy went 0 for 4.


Charleston 6 – West Virginia 13Eduardo Sosa went 2 for 4 with two runs scored and a walk, Gary Sanchez went 1 for 4 had a ribbie and drew a walk, and Ramon Flores went 2 for 5 with a run scored and one driven in.  Anderson Feliz and KeviN Mahoney each notched hits as well.  On the mound, Zach Nuding allowed three earned run over five frames while striking out three and walking only one.  West Virginia blew the game open against Tommy Kahnle in this one scoring six runs (three earned) against him.  Manny Barreda allowed a run and Yobanny Reyes allowed two.

Short Season-A

Staten Island 3 – Tri-City 5Mason Williams went 3 for 5 in his return to the lineup scoring a run and stealing a base, Zach Wilson homered, Reymond Nunez doubled and walked twice, Shane Brown notched a hit and walked, Angelo Gumbs scored a run and got a hit and Cito Culver had a hit as well.  Tyler Austin also went hitless in his Staten Island debut  Will Oliver threw 5.1 innings of four-run ball while striking out six. Dustin Hobbs allowed a run in relief and Matt Richardson threw a scoreless inning. That’s all I gotta say about this one.


GCL Yankees 14 – GCL Blue Jays 12This wound up being a crazy thirteen inning affair.  Ravel Santana had a second inning Grand Slam in a seven-run second inning.  David Adams played seven inning in the field and went 1 for 4 with a runs scored, Dante Bichette went 1 for 4 with an RBI triple and came around to score and also drew two walks, and Justin James went 1 for 3 with a walk off the bench.  Claudio Custodio who had been red hot of late, went 0 for 8. Ouch.

The Yanks also used nine pitchers in this game.  Zachary Varce got the start and allowed two earned runs in three innings while striking four and walking three. Deward Cruz really did most of the damage though yielding five runs in just 1.1 innings. Daniel Martinez got the win as he tossed 2.1 scoreless frames in relief.
