A look at the minor-league rotations

Tough night for Phil Franchise. He allowed five runs on seven hits with two walks and one (!) strikeout in five innings against Richmond.

Perhaps now this will quiet the talk that the Yankees should promote him right away. The kid needs to learn, give him time.

Meanwhile, for those of you interested in such things, I have the rotations for the top four minor-league teams:

AAA SCRANTON
RHP Tyler Clippard (overshadowed by the Franchise)
RHP Phil Hughes (next few weeks will be telling)
RHP Ross Ohlendorf (Torre was impressed by him all spring)
RHP Matt DeSalvo (making the most of a second chance?)
RHP Steven Jackson (sleeper in the Randy Johnson deal perhaps)

AA TRENTON
LHP Chase Wright (off to insane start)
RHP Jeff Marquez (2004 sandwich pick)
RHP Alan Horne (college journeyman, 11th round pick in 2005)
RHP Brett Smith (2004 2nd round pick from UC Irvine)
RHP Jason Jones (finished last season at Trenton)

HIGH A TAMPA
RHP Guillermo Villalona (24-year-old Dominican now in 6th season)
RHP Ian Kennedy (1st round pick out USC last June)
RHP George Kontos (5th rounder from Northwestern last June)
LHP Phil Coke (been kicking around since ’03)

LOW A CHARLESTON
RHP Tim Norton (7th round pick out of UConn last June)
RHP Eric Hacker (missed last season after shoulder surgery)
RHP Grant Duff (31st round pick in 2004 may be a find)
LHP Mike Dunn (former position player)
LHP Angel Reyes (1.71 ERA in 37 career appearances)

Note: RHPs Humberto Sanchez (elbow) and Joba Chamberlain (hamstring) are in extended spring training. Brian Cashman said Chamberlain is “two weeks out” from joining the Tampa rotation.
