Forum: Around The Minors

Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?

  1. Juan Rivera promoted

    juan Rivera won't play in the AA All star game after all. Not that he's complaining. Rivera is being promoted to Columbus immediately. he will still play in the Futures game. Incidentally, The Sporting News just featured Rivera as the Yankee farmhand closest to being a 5 tool prospect. (He doesn't steal much.) JJ

  3. Henson's first Homer!!

    Hit his 1st hr in AAA today, he will start slow and turn it on. But the big news is Eric Almonte and Scott Seabol. Almonte came alive last year in AA and was the one ofthe best players in the AFL and after a slow start in AAA he has gone crazy! He went deep today and has an extra base hit in 6 straight games. Seabol has two Homers!! I wonder what they are going to do with these two?

  4. Futures Game

    Can someone fill me in on the Futures Game as per what Yanks are scheduled to play? And is it just AAA or all three levels?

  5. El Duquecito Gets Roughed Up By Syracuse

    Adrian pitches in the minors worse than he pitches in the majors. Oh well. Lookit here: COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Brandon Lyon scattered four hits over eight scoreless innings and Garrick Haltiwanger drove in four runs as the Syracuse SkyChiefs defeated the Columbus Clippers, 9-0. Lyon (3-3) retired 19 of the 21 batters he faced after yielding a pair of singles in the third inning and finished with five strikeouts. Haltiwanger, who had three hits, blasted a three-run homer and singled home a...

  6. Nick Is Slumping

    NJ's batting average has declined to .250 as of 6/28, after a particularly tough game in which he went 0-5 with 4 ks. He has not been the same since he came back from his wrist injury. I wonder if he pressed himself back into action too soon to dispel thoughts of his fragility after last year's injury. Whatever the reason, let us hope that this is just a little bump. He is very important to the Yanks' future.

  8. Alex Graman Struggling...

    Alex Graman, the Yankees' top pitching prospect by most accounts (after all, Keisler and Lilly can't really be considered prospects anymore), is having a pretty bad season in AA. His 4.62 ERA is pretty big, and he's allowed 15 <i>unearned</i> runs. His strikeout-to-walk ratio is decent, 69:38, but not outstanding. You can ride potential for a few years, but eventually, shouldn't you start getting people out? Shouldn't we expect a little bit more at AA from a college pitcher? Does anybody...

  9. Hopes and Dreams in Minor League Baseball

    I recently reviewed “Hopes and Dreams in Minor League Baseball" and you can read about it at: http://www.netshrine.com/hopes.html If you're a fan on the minors, I recommend this video. PS - for the record, I have nothing to do with the video - I was merely asked to review it by its producer.

  10. A Weird Night at Keyspan

    Monday night I went to the Cyclones' Keyspan Park. A beautiful place, nice atmosphere - and a very loud PA system. But such is the way things are everywhere in sports these days. The Cyclones beat and pummeled the Red Sox' Lowell Spinners right into the ground. The 'clones even had a no-hitter going until one out in the eighth. A couple of weird points. It seems in A level baseball the manager lets the starter go three innings no matter how awful he is. The Cyclones' pitcher walked...

  11. Chad Ogea!

    Yankees take shot on Ogea Sunday, July 1, 2001 Yankees owner George Steinbrenner never could resist the chance to author a good storybook ending. You know, the one where he rescues an aging or injured veteran from the scrapheap and revives his career.

  12. A Ballpark Grows In Brooklyn

    Keyspan Park is just about ready to go and so are the Cyclones. The ballpark is on the site of the old and legendary Steeplechase Park, which was torn down starting in 1967, and is in the shadow of the landmark and newly repainted Parachute Jump. The old (going back to the 1920's) roller coaster, The Thunderbolt, has been razed and removed. It sure looks weird at Coney without it there covered in ivy, as it was. I have my tickets already for when the Staten Island Yankees come in. ...

  14. Pete Rose, Jr

    The Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic Independant league announced yesterday that they signed Petey Jr. as a reserve IF/OF. I thought he was totally out of baseball. Anyway maybe I'll see him play tonight.

  16. Good day for prospects not named Jimenez

    Nick Johnson and Juan Rivera both hit home runs today (both in losing causes, sadly) to celebrate their being named to play in All-Star Futures game in Seattle. This will be the second such game for The Stick, who also played in the Futures game in Boston in '99. Remember, that was the game where current second baseman (and star of today's game against Detroit) Alfonso Soriano was the MVP.

  17. Henson & Johnson Article

    http://www.timesdispatch.com/sports/MGBJ5XMVHOC.html It hasn't happened yet, but Drew Henson knows he will miss football, for sure by Labor Day. He's prepared. Henson began looking ahead at the fork in the road years ago. Baseball or football? "I love to get up every day and play a game," Henson said. "That's always been more attractive to me than what's involved in playing a football season." So instead of this quarterback preparing for his senior year at Michigan, from which he...

  18. Walling Will Give it Another Shot

    http://nydailynews.com/2001-06-27/Metro_Sports/Baseball/a-116350.asp Each time David Walling threw from the stretch position, the uneasiness came back. It was so crippling sometimes that he could think of nothing else but the runner on first base, his concentration turned to mush. "It was a battle for me to come set without the anxiety of needing to throw to first," Walling said. "I was too focused on the runner at first base instead of the batter, like I needed to be. I lost location on...

  19. John Sickels thoughts on Brandon Claussen

    Brandon Claussen, SP, New York Yankees (Norwich -- Double-A) John Sickels: Claussen has moved up quickly this year. He dominated high A ball in Tampa, and he's holding his own in Norwich. He still has some consolidation to do before he's ready to pitch in the bigs, but he's playing pretty well in Norwich. He might be a September callup in 2002. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/20010619huckabay.html

  20. The curse strikes Marte, Almonte and maybe others!!!!!

    I've done it again! For those who have seen my last post, you know what this is about, me accidentally destroying the carrers of any player I collect a card or autograph of. For the others who didn't see my last post, here's the story: Every time I buy a Yankee minor leaguer's card or get their autograph their career takes a turn for the worst, most of the time within a couple of weeks or so, but some within days! It's happened so many times, its almost scary....here's the list: Craig...
