Off day minor league notes: Campos down with elbow inflammation

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 07, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

In the same week that Michael Pineda had season-ending surgery — and a little more than a week before the Seattle Mariners come to Yankee Stadium — Charleston starter Jose Campos was placed on the disabled list with elbow inflammation.

Campos, of course, was the fourth part of this winter’s trade that sent Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to Seattle and brought Pineda to New York. Pineda never got into a game for the Yankees before suffering a serious shoulder injury, and Campos lasted just five starts before being shutdown.

Obviously, with a pitcher, Tommy John surgery jumps to mind any time you hear about elbow injury, but for now there seems to be no indication that Campos needs a procedure. A Yankees source said that inflammation was the only diagnosis. Even so, in the wake of the Pineda injury, it’s certainly bad news and makes this winter’s trade look even worse for the time being.

Campos was 3-0 with a 4.01 ERA. He had more than a strikeout per inning, an opponents’ batting average of .213 and a 1.14 WHIP, and those numbers were even better before he gave up eight runs in 2.2 innings in his last start before going on the DL.

• First baseman Steve Pearce and designated hitter Jack Cust are the only Triple-A regulars slugging at least .400 this season, but they offer limited defensive value should the Yankees look to bring up a new hitter. Pearce is emerging as the best bet with an impressive .351/.439/.557 slash line, but he’s seen almost all of his time at first base. He can play some third base and the outfield corners, and more time at those positions might help the former Pirates regular plead his case for a call-up.

• Looking for more defensive flexibility out of a potential call-up? Kevin Russo is putting himself back on the map with a .299 average and .380 on-base percentage while playing second, third and a lot of outfield. Third baseman Brandon Laird is tied for the Triple-A team lead in RBIs – and he has played some outfield — but his .258/.327/.381 slash line isn’t likely to grab much attention.

• A new wild card in the hunt for a potential call-up is Ronnier Mustelier. Signed out of Cuba, he can play second base, third base and the outfield corners, and he was just promoted to Triple-A after hitting .353/.412/.598 in Trenton. He was sent to the Arizona Fall League last offseason, so the Yankees clearly think he’s worth keeping an eye on.

• Despite Manny Banuelos coming off the disabled list — he’s starting tomorrow — and D.J. Mitchell returning from a solid big league stint, there’s still statistically more to like in the Triple-A bullpen than in the Triple-A rotation. Lefty Mike O’Connor and late-inning relievers Kevin Whelan and Chase Whitley each have numbers that seem worth of call-up consideration.

• Utility infielder Corban Joseph is off the Triple-A disabled list and was immediately sent down to Double-A to get at-bats (Trenton didn’t really have a regular second baseman). He’s played just two games, so it’s too early for his .375 average to mean anything.

J.R. Murphy and Ramon Flores are the biggest names on the High-A Tampa roster, but its Rob Segedin who’s having the biggest impact. Still getting a little bit of time at third base, the team’s regular right fielder is hitting .299/.373/.487 with five home runs and 21 RBIs. That’s more than twice as many homers and RBIs than anyone else on the team.

• Reliever Mark Montgomery still looks like a potential fast-riser. He caught everyone’s attention with his strikeout totals last season in Charleston, and this year he has 23 strikeouts and a 0.98 WHIP through 15.1 innings in Tampa. He’s gotten more than four groundball outs for every one fly ball out.

• The Tampa rotation standout is still Nik Turley, the former 50th-round pick who has a 2.23 ERA with solid across-the-board numbers (.246 opponents average, 1.24 WHIP, nearly a strikeout per inning).

Dante Bichette Jr. is still looking for his first home run, but Tyler Austin already has 10 of them. An early favorite to be the Yankees breakout prospect, Austin is hitting .327/.378/.782. Like Segedin, he’s a converted corner infielder now seeing most of his time in right field.

Mason Williams and Gary Sanchez were expected to overshadow Austin on that Charleston roster, and they’ve more than held their own. Sanchez hasn’t homered, but he’s hitting .337 with 10 doubles (27 strikeouts, though). Williams is hitting .327/.357/.500 with 11 stolen bases.

• The underperforming parts of that prospect loaded Charleston roster are Bichette (.215/.305/.247), Cito Culver (.238/.351/.313), Ben Gamel (.238/.304/.287) and Angelo Gumbs (.207/.300/.299). For whatever reason, it’s Gumbs that surprises me most. Not sure why, but I’ve been kind of expecting him to jump more onto the radar this year. Still plenty of time for it to happen.

• Charleston starter Bryan Mitchell has allowed 14 hits through 24.2 innings. That’s good for a 3.28 ERA. Walks remain a concern with him — he has 17 already this season — but he’s a legitimately impressive lower-level prospect. If not for Campos, Mitchell would probably be the top pitching prospect in the lower levels of the system.

    Watch out – see who Cash trades from these prospects

    Hamels said he meant to hit Harper. I don’t think such “old time” pitchers like Sal Maglie, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale or Early Winn would say any such thing. “It slipped out of my hand.”

    ——–

    Did Hamels actually say that? I only saw the highlights this morning while at the gym (no sound). Didn’t hear any commentary.

    If he did admit it, that would be a first. I don’t recall anyone ever admitting to it. At least not in recent memory.

  3. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    mick,
    I usually (at least the first time I ever performed one) do the marriage for free. But I believe there’s a law in Georgia prohibiting inter-species weddings. I’m nothing if not law-abiding, most of them, anyway.

  4. Travelbug83 May 7th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Are we ever going to find out what happened to Dickerson (other than he crashed into a wall after a diving catch) and more importantly, when he will be back? He was hitting really well and unlike Cust and Pearce has quite a bit of defensive value if we need some.

  5. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    GF,
    There was a link a post or two back, in which Hamels said it was intentional, said it was “old school baseball.” Ass. The message would have been the same without him saying anything.

  6. blake May 7th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    SWB got postponed….oh well…Manny can wait til tomorrow I guess.

  7. blake May 7th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    “Did Hamels actually say that? I only saw the highlights this morning while at the gym (no sound). Didn’t hear any commentary.”

    Yea…he did.

  8. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    He probably loves the 189 goal
    ====================
    Would think his job would be a lot easier with an open checkbook.
    Now he will have to be creative, not a strong suit, after years of free spending.
    These are unchartered waters for Cashboy.

    He has always felt the need to prove himself because everyone believed the Yankee money bailed him out. He probably sees this as a challenge. Why do ppl think he started to copy what the Red Sox were doing.

  11. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    mick,
    They would have my blessing.

  12. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    I think Hal has a definite plan and nothing goes on without his imprint on it. In this regard he is a lot like his father. I see Cash doing what he is told as he did with George and now with Hal. He will most likely be rehired, if he wants the job and why wouldn’t he?

  13. Giuseppe Franco May 7th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Damn. I’m thinking a token 7 game suspension (or the like) is probably headed his way, which of course won’t matter since it will be reduced after an appeal and he won’t have to miss any starts.

    Then again, since he admitted his guilt, it may be pointless to appeal.

    :D

  16. Warning Track Power May 7th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Does anybody else believe that
    Kevin Russo + Brandon Laird are “AAAA” players?

    It does not matter to me how well they play in AAA or how great their stats look, I just don’t envision them helping the Yankees win games if they were in the starting line-up.

  17. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Hamels will not enjoy his next AB against Strasburg.
    Maybe that will make him think of pitching in the AL.

  18. Bronx Jeers May 7th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    A new wild card in the hunt for a potential call-up is Ronnier Mustelier

    —————————————————————

    This guy looks like a halfback and has got a name like a left winger. If he continues to rake at AAA, I’d like to see him get a shot in Nunez’ role.

  19. Giuseppe Franco May 7th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    I guess that explains why some were calling Hamels a punk earlier and claiming his old school ways wouldn’t jive in the Yankee clubhouse.

    I’m late to the party so I’m just now connecting the dots.

  20. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    What exactly has Harper done to deserve this?

    “Hamels will not enjoy his next AB against Strasburg”

    Zimmerman already hit him….but yea I wouldn’t dig in there too tight with big red pumping 99….

  23. J. Alfred Prufrock May 7th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Feliz struggling so far against LHP (21 AB), but OPS’ing .943 against RHP (52 AB).

  24. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Personally , I think Girardi has more power than Cash.

  25. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Mr. mick,
    Not too many apes looking for nuptials around here, (well, maybe a few). We’ve got pastors around here who bless the flocks (beef cattle, sheep, buffalo and even a few emus). Most of those species don’t require a liturgy.

    _______________________________

    MLB suspended Hamels five games. He said he will not appeal. All it really does is push his next start back one day. It is pretty meaningless as a punishment.

    *************************************************************
    Nothing! Hamels is an idiot. The dork put himself in a terrible situation.
    Not just the act alone, but then admitting his intentions to the media.
    Who does this sort of thing?

    Someone from the Phillies is going to get a ball thrown at his back and it
    won’t feel very good.

    Incidentally, Jose Ramirez is a Yankee prospect, in A-ball, pitching for Tampa.

    He did not pitch for the Chicago White Sox today against Zac McAllister and Cleveland. LHP Jose Quintana, former Yankee prospect, made a relief appearance for the ChiSox today, however.

    Well, he’s 19 yrs old and he’s got as much hype surrounding him as Griffey or A-Rod did at that age.

    Plus, his perceived antics/maturity/ego seems to rub some the wrong way. Perhaps Hamels is one of them.

  31. J. Alfred Prufrock May 7th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    I guess the 5 games is for admitting he did it because that’s been happening since time immemorial. The only difference here is that usually the pitcher says “it got away”

  34. Tar May 7th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    “I guess Hamels can cross the Nationals off his list of suitors.”

    Did Hamels just hit the guy because he felt like it? If so, that’s just bush league. Harper didn’t do anything.

    Zimmerman isn’t stupid. As I said, Hamels is a natural for the sox.

  44. J. Alfred Prufrock May 7th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    I would prefer that Hamels not wind up a Suxer.

    Plus, his perceived antics/maturity/ego seems to rub some the wrong way. Perhaps Hamels is one of them.
    =======================
    So he hit him on general principle?
    Usually it’s because a player is killing their pitching.
    Guess he got even when he stole home on him and made him look like an ass.

  46. Tar May 7th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    “Tar, nah, they’ll probably end up signing him ”

    :D . I can see the press conference now. Rizzo “I am happy to announce the Nationals have signed the “gutless chicken” Cole Hamels!!!

    Mick I was being sarcastic but I’m guessing some ppl are rubbed the wrong way by the hair, the hype, doing a Willie Mays with his helmet on his first hit, etc. I don’t mind it though because it adds some flare to the game.

  66. J. Alfred Prufrock May 7th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Robi threw his bat down, Manny style, after the GS last night. But Robi doesn’t show off much. Not his style.

    The game has been played that way for 100+ years.

    Guys like Bob Gibson would do it if the hitter dug in the box too close to the plate. Gibson would reply “THAT’S MY PLATE!!!!!” by drilling him.

    The only real difference here is that Hamels actually admitted his guilt in the postgame interview.

    GF,
    Never, ever, heard a pitcher admit it. Gibson and Drysdale would just do it, and deny intent. That’s the difference.

  73. Nick in SF May 7th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Mets fans remember. :grin:

  74. CashmanLovesPsychoHookers May 7th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Obviously, with a pitcher, Tommy John surgery jumps to mind any time you hear about elbow injury, but for now there seems to be no indication that Campos needs a procedure. A Yankees source said that inflammation was the only diagnosis.
    ============================

    Oh… So the Yankees say Campos only has a little “inflammation.”

    Well that makes me feel better… Can’t think of a single reason not to compketely trust THEIR diagnosis on such things.

  75. J. Alfred Prufrock May 7th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    GF, bigger than the game and every columnist in the city waxed his poetics on it. Roger flipped out, but the media tried to make a big morality of play of it. Shocker. :roll:

    I must confess, I don’t recall the specifics, but I seem to remember one of the authors of a Yankee book (I think it was Olney) who described Clemens’ pregame ritual where he’d have Monahan or Donahue rub Icy Hot (or a similar substance) in his jock to get him psyched for a big game.

    Does anyone else recall that tale?

  84. blake May 7th, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    IF the cubs shop garza do the yankees listen? Curious.
    —————————-

    Have to listen but the Cubs would want a lot in prospects and I think Garza is a FA after this year so he would most likely not be a guy worth trading for.

    GF,

    I remember something about that…never knew if it was true or not.

    “Didn’t Buster Olney describe Clemens’ pregame ritual that night in his book?

    Funny stuff if my memory serves me.”

    My favorite was when the congressman asked him under oath if he had ever been a Vegan and Roger responded…”I’m sorry I don’t know what that is”

    ——–

    LOL. Ah, that’s good stuff.

    Either the education at the University of Texas is subpar or Clemens didn’t attend too many classes while he went there.

    Then again, you don’t have to be a college student/grad to know what a vegan is.

    Does anyone else recall that tale?

    uhh…that’s a new one on me.

    I posted after the Montero trade that I would have rather traded Banuelos for Garza than Montero for Pineda…..still feel that way and as most of you know I think Manny is the real deal and has a chance to be special.

    I think O’Neil confirmed it a while back on a Yankee broadcast.

    GF,
    How many Texan athletes are Vegans? How many Texans, for that matter?

    Thanks.

    Not sure if that would psych anyone else up for a game but it could be a popular request in a cat house.

    Good point. I don’t imagine tofu is a big seller in that state.

    GF,
    Except maybe in Austin.
