Triple-A coaching staff returning to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 03, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees today announced that their entire Triple-A coaching staff will return next season. This is the group that managed to win a division without having a home field, so it’s not a bad group to keep around.

Still no official announcement about the big league staff, but Joe Girardi has said he expects everyone back.

I believe High-A Tampa is the Yankees only full-season affiliate that hasn’t announced its coaching staff. Here are the coaching staffs for the other three.  

SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE
Manager: Dave Miley
Pitching: Scott Aldred
Hitting: Butch Wynegar
Coach: Frank Menechino
Athletic trainer: Darren London
Strength and condition: Lee Tressel

Miley, Aldred, Wynegar, London and Tressel have been with Scranton since I was there. Aldred interviewed for the big league pitching coach job that ultimately went to Larry Rothschild.

TRENTON
Manager: Tony Franklin
Pitching: Tommy Phelps
Hitting: Justin Turner
Coach: Luis Dorante
Athletic trainer: Scott DiFrancesco
Strength and conditioning: Orlando Crance

Franklin was the Eastern League Manager of the Year and returns for his seventh season with Trenton. Phelps has been there for five seasons, and Turner joins them for the first time. He spent the past two years as the hitting coach with High-A Tampa.

CHARLESTON
Manager: Al Pedrique
Pitching: Danny Borrell
Hitting: P.J. Pilittere
Coach: Justin Tordi
Athletic trainer: Mike Becker
Strength and conditioning: Joe Giangrasso

Pedrique is the former interim manager of the Diamondbacks. He replaces Carlos Mendoza, who has been named a roving defensive coach for the Yankees. Borrell returns for a second year with Charleston, and Pilittere will replace Greg Colbrunn, who’s now the Red Sox hitting coach. Pilittere came up as a player in the Yankees system and began coaching last year.

    It’s also probably why Cano will be the Yankees’ next A-Rod in the second half of his contract.

    ———————–

    Given that he’ll be (currently anyway) the only big money player on the books by that point, I don’t really see it as being that big of a deal. The dilemma with Cano is just how to navigate 2014-2016 when you still have Tex, CC, Arod and probably Jeter on the books.

    For that to happen, they become much, much better at mL development, including the patience to finish-off development at the ML level, which sometimes takes multiple seasons. To accomplish that goal, they may have to be prepared to lose a lot more games than any Yankee teams have over a sustained time horizon in many years. They can prevent absolute sucking by getting lucky with cheap, fungible ML veterans (like Ibanez at YS), but to win big if they don’t develop a lot of players in-house, they have to spend big.

    So I think the chances are high of them (over)spending again fairly soon. If it’s not done smartly, rinse…repeat.

  3. Shame Spencer January 3rd, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    I hear ya Rich.. But the whole point of this change in philosophy is, theoretically anyway, that by the end of Cano’s contract they’d be operating smarter.

    They could/should have at least one cost controlled OFer, a couple starting pitchers (Phelps, Nova, Pineda are all controlled for the next 5-6 years), and god willing a catcher (JR and/or Sanchez).

    That, even with Cano, should leave plenty of dollars to target the right kind of FAs or trades.

    @JonHeymanCBS: Jason frasor gets $1.5M 1 year deal w #rangers

    That’s a steal

  5. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    @DCameronFG: Jason Frasor (1/1.5) and Brandon League (3/22.5) side by side. http://t.co/gdOjXDyI

    Lol

  6. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Shame Spencer

    True, if it’s really a change in philosophy and not a cover for some finance-drive strategy designed to make the team more attractive to potential bidders if they are inclined to sell (which I suspect).

    Because if Hal is such a smart business, as some media-types are only too willing to blithely repeat, wouldn’t he want someone to implement the new philosophy with a demonstrated record of success in that specific area?

    If G. Love’s guy is to believed, maybe they have finally reached the put-up or shut-up time with Cashman and are ready to move on.

  7. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    What is a steal is having Montgomery, Goody, Black, Pinder, Tracy and others coming in the pen to form a cheap bullpen that is no longer reliant on FAs and offer a depth of potential trade chips for other teams that continue to play with the volatile relief pitcher market – - – -

  8. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    The Yanks have done a great job developing relievers the last couple of years…..but that doesn’t mean 1.5 million for Frasor isn’t a really good deal

  9. Shame Spencer January 3rd, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Rich – True.. or maybe they just need a scapegoat and know that using Arod and his contract isn’t going to fly forever. I don’t know that it’s an indictment on Cash’s work as much as it is just a way to distract the fan base. And that could be the way they go, in order to quietly shop the team.. but I dunno.. I’m still not sure that’s what they’re interested in just yet.

  10. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    True – but what makes it different is the philosophy – Yanks do not even look at established relievers whose best years may have already happened – even if it is for 1 million and one year – they are going 6 years of control now – develop from within – and getting the relievers at the early end of their career – Rangers have been trying to go outside their system the past few years – with a Mike Adams to a Joe Nathan – now Robbie Ross has been great – but in the end – going forward – spending money on the pen – especially middle relievers via FA just is not worth it for the most part – philosophy wise – - – -just as the same with spending money on a no. 4 or no.5 innings eaters – they can come from within – and hopefully a no. 3 as well – but that has been left to be seen – - – -

  11. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    Thats a lot of speculation for a strategy that isn’t really implemented.

  12. Shame Spencer January 3rd, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    we’re gonna pop some tags, we only got 20$ in our pockets, looking for a come up, this Yoga is gonna be awesome! @Giancarlo818

    Dickerson has an in with Giancarlo!!!

  13. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    Shame

    I think Cashman has made some really good moves in the last decade: 1) the A-Rod trade; 2) recommending against re-signing him once he opted out; 3) recommending against trading for Santana while waiting for CC’s free agency; 4) the Swisher trade.

    On the negative side: 1) he hasn’t made a good trade for a front of the rotation starter in over a decade; 2) during his tenure, the only top position player that he developed and kept is Cano; 3) he hasn’t developed any top starting pitchers. Hughes is the closest, but he isn’t a front of the rotation starter yet, and even if (maybe especially if) he becomes one this season, it seems unlikely that they can keep him.

    So he has failed at the standard he set when he received more power in 2006, that is, not assembling the cost-controlled mL pipeline of talent that he said would negate the need to overpay for other team’s players. It should be noted that his two real impact acquisitions, A-Rod and CC, were both made possible because the Yankees could spend humongous money.

    As a result, he hasn’t done enough right to be viewed as a scapegoat. His failures on the terms he set have contributed enough to the current predicament the franchise is in to warrant replacing him.

    I will also note that, again, he doesn’t suck as a GM; he’s ok, but the greatest franchise in sports should have a great GM.

  14. Duh Innings II January 3rd, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    The Yanks should not play A-Rod in 2013.

    They should offer him and 70% of his remaining salary after 2013 ($60.2M) but not the homerun milestone bonus money to anyone save divisional rivals, the Mets, or the Tigers and if no one wants him, offer him a $60.2M buyout paid across four years at $15.05M a year to go away. He’d cost whoever takes him on a guaranteed measly $25.8M ($6.45M a year) 2014-17 plus $6M in homerun milestone bonus money (for HR #660) or $12M (#660 and #714) as I doubt he’d finish with 755 or more HR to collect more homerun milestone bonus money. Hello return to Seattle. Who will be their gate draw when King Felix is traded or lost to free agency? Enter A-Rod…and perhaps Ichiro in 2015 as he will not reach 3000 hits before then.

    If A-Rod rejects a trade or a buyout, the Yanks should bench him 2014-16 and have the 60% buyout offer stand after every year save 2016 after which they dump his ass (eat $20M for 2017 like the Tigers ate I believe $14M to get rid of Gary Sheffield.) If they bench A-Rod, he most likely collects his first $6M homerun milestone bonus in 2015 or 2016 (660 HR) which spares the Yanks from having to pay him that bonus in 2014 but that’s it as he’d need 67 HR 2014-16 to collect his second $6M homerun milestone bonus (714 HR) – ‘not happening. He most likely joins the 3000 hit club but loses $24M in homerun milestone money (714, 755, 762, and 763 HR) and a chance to be the homerun and RBI king.

    ‘Time to play hardball with this guy and btw what possible use would he be to the 2013 Yanks. His days of playing 3B let alone the field are over. All he could be is a DH but what if whoever the DH is is having a good or better year?

  15. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Naaah – it is already – absent Mo – it has been already going on – with the cheaper options in the bullpen already and the drafts that have already happened. The Yanks just decreased their bullpen by 14 million from last year – - – -

    Implemented – yes

    Finished – of course not

  16. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Yanks have already gone primarily cheap in the pen – as well as no. 4 and no. 5 in the rotation – - – -

  17. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I am wondering if the Yanks will allow for competition b/w Diaz and Mesa and Mustelier in ST – - – -

  18. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    They spent a million dollars on David Aardsma, 10 million on Mo. Their bullpen is full pretty much, so saying they have definitely implemented a strategy to avoid relief free agency is premature.

    Deals like Brandon League are not worth it. But guys like Frasor for 1.5 million are definitely deals the Yankees will be interested in going forward. They pay that much for Boone Logan.

  19. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    A great owner too

    @MLB_PR: Opening Day on Mon 4/1 will feature 4 natl games on ESPN/ESPN2: BOS @ NYY at 1, SF @ LAD at 4, PHI @ ATL at 7 & STL @ ARI at 10 (all ET).

  21. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    The Yankees have been doing an excellent job of supplementing the bullpen with prospects, its about their only developmental strength atm. It has been happening since 2007 but they have always mixed in free agents as well. Presuming them to completely eschew the free agent market is an overreach.

  22. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    I said absent Mo – and that is not exactly FA – it is special case

    Aardsma they spent 500,000 in 2012 and then another $500,000 – practically they would spend on someone on the 40 man for a minimum spot over 2 years – not a big ticket free agent

    They have DRob internally – along with Joba – cheap guys in Eppley and Rapada and Phelps filling in out of the Pen. Logan was acquired via a trade – - – - -

    Going forward – the Yanks are obviously going in house – just look at their drafts – Nick Goody from LSU – Mark Montgomery – Brandon Pinder – - – -

    Why spend even 1.5 million on a FA you do not know much about than one of your in house replacements you have years of scouting and development time

    The strategy has been implemented – it is not complete – - – -

    Again – if it was not – Soriano would be back here right now – - – -

  23. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    Having in house relievers would certainly help the budget considering how much you have to pay for them these days often

  24. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    They are not – they are not going after FA pitchers – especially like they used to – - – -

    They may work the waiver wire for another Eppley or Rapada – but their depth in the minors may even preclude that – especially when they have strength in no. 4 and no. 5 pitchers who can be converted (like a phelps or noesi in the past) as well as college level relievers who are on the fast track (like DRob, and now Montgomery, Goody, and possibly Pinder and/or Black – if they convert him which on the blogs there is a bunch of speculation they might) – - – -

  25. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    @AndrewMarchand: Yanks open season at 1 pm, April Fool’s, vs. Red Sox.

    Oh I get it now….Stewart at catcher is an April fools joke…. Good one guys

  26. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Why spend even 1.5 million on a FA you do not know much about than one of your in house replacements you have years of scouting and development time

    The strategy has been implemented – it is not complete – – – -

    Again – if it was not – Soriano would be back here right now – – – -

    Because that 1.5 million dollar reliever has a lot of major league success, where as your very informed prospects are still just that? That soriano point is presumptive. If Soriano would come back for very cheap I’m sure they’d bring him back. Not paying a guy 13 million over multiple years != eschewing free agents. They drafted David Robertson years ago as well, drafting relievers or guys who project as strong relief doesn’t mean they are going to end up with 100% internal bullpen.

    You’ll have a better case when in the next 2 offseasons if they don’t spend any money on the bullpen in free agency. Next offseason Joba & Mo walk. Offseason after that D-Rob walks.

  27. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I would have liked to have Frasor for 1.5 million

  28. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    for example – if the Yankees were not eschewing the FA market then they get Soria this offseason – which is what the Rangers did – along with other bullpen arms the last few years – - – -

    The Yankees are going inhouse – it is right there for anyone to see if you look at (1) how they have operated their bullpen (in particular Cashman) and (2) how they have handled their past drafts. It dates back to DRob and Melancon – not every arm is going to be perfect – but it is right there – it is why every now and then we get a post that says – Yanks claim Storey off waivers, etc. – they are going extremely cheap in the pen – especially the middle relief and long relief options.

    Now – i am not sure how they will consider their own internal options going forward – guys they know can handle New York and have made it – but going after other teams FAs in middle relief – i don’t see that being the philosophy – even for a Soria or Frasor, etc. – - – -

    The Yanks have more pressing problems than saying should have, would have, could have about Frasor – - – -

  31. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Like Soriano, Marte, & Feliciano?

  32. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    I am much more worried about starters no. 2 and no. 3 going forward – the bullpen and how they construct it with inhouse options is not a concern – imo – - -

  33. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Too extreme, way too extreme, to say the Yankees are not going to bring in any FA relievers.

  34. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    You’re basically saying they will ignore options, even if they are good deals or smart signings, because of some philosophy of which there is no evidence. As wanting a cheap, home grown core in the bullpen is not a philosophy that eschews FA relievers.

  35. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Sure they do….just saying it was a good deal….no need to make more of it

  36. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Soriano was a Levine signing – and something people now gripe about how the Yankees are not signing that anymore – and they let Soriano go – - – -

    Lefty relievers have always been a sticking point – but they kept it inhouse since the Feliciano signing – - – -and they did not sign any lefty reliever this offseason – you can come back to me when they overspend on J.P Howell this offseason – - – -

  37. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    True – it may have been a good deal for the Rangers given how they are deciding to handle their pen – I am saying it would not be for the Yanks giving the way they are handling their pen and going forward – - – -that’s all – - – -

  38. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    It is not that controversial that the Yanks are building an inhouse bullpen – - – - just as they are with their no. 4 and no. 5 starter spots – whether they get the no. 3 spot – idk – - – -

  39. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    The Yankees not signing a reliever to a multi-year deal this year (like Soria) is more about them not signing nearly ANYONE to a multi year deal than evidence of a philosophy.

  40. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    There is evidence – have you not seen the drafts the past few years – they are practically screaming it with Montgomery, Goody, Pinder, Nuding, etc. – - -and with the way they handled Phelps – - – - -

    When it comes to middle relief – why pay market price when you can develop from within and can cheap waiver wire claims like an Eppley and Rapada – - – -

  41. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I am saying it would not be for the Yanks giving the way they are handling their pen and going forward – – – -that’s all – – – -”

    A one year deal for 1.5 million doesn’t have much to do with the future….virtually none of those prospects save maybe Montgomery will be ready this year

  42. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    It is not that controversial that the Yanks are building an inhouse bullpen

    It is when you say they’ll also ignore cheap relievers in FA because of it. Of course the Yankees are using a more in house bullpen or scrap piece bullpen. They’ve been doing it since 2007. Doesn’t mean they won’t spend anything at all in free agency. What if they can get a guy in FA who is cheaper than one of their in house guys in arbitration? What if their in house guys aren’t good enough? What if they want to make the BP a big strength?

    Even this offseason they dropped 10 mil on Mo, and while that is a core guy, its still a huge sum to put on the bullpen. If they dedicate 10 mil to the bullpen after Mo is gone you can’t fill that with in house guys.

  43. Shame Spencer January 3rd, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Is the full schedule out yet??

  44. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    But that is part of the philosophy – a cheap, inhouse bullpen to handle 2014 and beyond – that is why they have had the drafts, worked the waiver wires, and primarily relied on it to form their bullpen – - – -you cannot change the way they have added depth and AGGRESIVELY promoted their college relievers – for crying out loud – Goody was drafted in 2011 and finished in Tampa this year – Corey Black was drafted this year and was already in Charleston and many consider him to be a reliever option – and Montgomery has been a face track similar to DRob – - – -

  45. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    There is evidence – have you not seen the drafts the past few years – they are practically screaming it

    None of those things scream ‘we are literally not going to sign free agent relievers’. It says ‘we understand our developmental strength so we’re drafting guys who are good at this thing’. Your leap in logic from draft relief prospects -> never spend on free agent relievers again is astounding!

  46. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    The Yankees are clearly targeting relievers in the later rounds of the draft to try and build the pen from within…..but again that has very little to do with Jason Frasor

  47. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    College relievers start higher? No kidding! Guess the Yankees won’t sign any free agent relievers.

  48. Shame Spencer January 3rd, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Towers said when he went to the Dbacks he just focused on the pen and bench. Some took that to mean it should be the focus of every GM.

    At least we have one thing to agree on though: we can develop pen arms (does that count as development, btw? On some level it must, right?) and Girardi can make princesses out of pumpkins even if the arms aren’t all that effective. Yay for agreement!!

  49. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    never spend on free agent relievers again is astounding!

    *******

    I do not remember saying “never”- – - – you are the one who said that – but are they going to bring in middle relievers or long relievers – especially relievers that would be worth it who will command that type of money – the evidence is not there – they have made a concerted effort to not get tied up into the volatile reliever market – - – -

    The Yanks have started a factory of middle relievers and appear to be using it to reduce costs in other areas – - – -

  50. austinmac January 3rd, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Before we get too excited about our bullpen, let’s see how Rapada and Eppley do in their second year. Relievers are very inconsistent and types like them even more so. Joba could be a key for a good bullpen.

    I am not sure I understand drafting so many relievers. Wouldn’t it make more sense to draft for other positions that cost so much more?

  51. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Ahhhh – aggressively moving the relievers in their system is a change from the past – - – -and yes – that is what they are doing – it is not that difficult to see this – if you pay attention to their drafts and how aggressive they are moving the relievers in the minors and working the waiver wire – - – - -

  52. The Return of Stoneburner January 3rd, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    When you have over 20 rounds in a draft – and you are drafting your relievers where they are – it is not that much of concern – imo – - – -

  53. blake January 3rd, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    So in summary….the Yanks are focusing on relievers later in the draft so that hopefully they can build a lot of the pen from within cheaply.

    That said….they may still have to supplement through free agency and traded as needed.

    Everyone agree?

  54. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    You said this: – Yanks do not even look at established relievers whose best years may have already happened – even if it is for 1 million and one year –

    But the evidence is not there. Marte, Feliciano, Soriano, Mariano, Park, Mitre. You could have made the same presumptive statement in 2008, after the bullpen became dominated by Yankee farm hands, and the 09 bullpen almost all internal+castoffs, but then they still went out and spent in free agency.

    You have to look at the sunk costs on the roster, the choices available, and the overall strategy of the Yankees.

    Why bother trying to rebut something Blake said about another teams signings if that is not what you meant?

  55. Ys Guy January 3rd, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    jf am i understanding this wrong, on david robertson’s BR page it says free agent; 2015. does that mean he’s a free agent BEFORE 2015? i thought he was controlled through the 2015 season…

  56. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    Ahhhh – aggressively moving the relievers in their system is a change from the past

    Montgomery & goody are both moving slower than David Robertson or Melancon.

  57. austinmac January 3rd, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    No doubt a good bullpen is critical to success. This is Aardsma’s second year or first full year back from TJS. He didn’t appear to me to be throwing mid 90s when I saw him last year. His control was always his Achilles heel, and it is said that is the last thing to return. I don’t think anyone knows if he will be a help or not.

    I also understand relievers get passed up in the draft, and players closer to the majors can be had later than for any other role. I still wonder if passing on guys in rounds 5-15 for relievers reduces your chances of success in other areas.

    It would be nice never to sign Quantrill and the like again.

  58. Jerkface January 3rd, 2013 at 3:22 pm
