Garcia goes four inning in rehab start

Freddy Garcia is finished in Scranton. As expected, he pitched four innings in his Triple-A rehab start, but the results weren’t especially good with eight hits and a walk. Then again, maybe Garcia was simply preparing himself to keep doing what he’s done all year, walking a tightrope and making it to the other side. Despite all the hits, he allowed just one earned run.

Garcia did throw a ton of strikes, and Donnie Collins reports that there were plenty of splitfingers mixed in.

Two other Triple-A notes of interest:

1. Jesus Montero has two home runs in tonight’s game. It’s always expected — though it doesn’t always happen — that a team will add a third catcher in September. With Gustavo Molina off the 40-man, there’s absolutely no reason to think Montero won’t be that third catcher.

2. Baseball America reports that Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will play its home games on the road next season. PNC Field is being renovated, and it seems the Yankees will share a stadium with some other team. My old friend Jim Mandelero writes that Rochester fits what the International League is looking for and could be the temporary home of the Triple-A Yankees.
