Yankees Farm Report: August 3, 2011

Today’s notes:

  • Austin Romine was scratched from Trenton’s lineup tonight with a strained back. Not sure how long he’ll be out for.
  • Mark Prior took a line drive off the arm today while throwing BP and has a bruise. He was coming back from that groin injury.
  • Dante Bichette Jr. won GCL Player of the Month.


The Yankees had a scheduled day off.


Akron 3 – Trenton 2

Melky Mesa went 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored, Damon Sublett went 1 for 4 with a run driven in and one scored, and Addison Maruszak went 0 for 2 but drove in a run. Corban Joseph, Zoilo Almonte, and Jose Pirela each notched hits as well. Graham Stoneburner got the start and allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four. Josh Romanski followed and gave up the game-winning homer in the top of the ninth and was saddled with the loss. He did strike out two in his 1.2 innings though.
