Off day notes from the minor leagues

A few minor league notes and observations as we wrap up the month of April…

Nik Turley• I was off this weekend when the Yankees released minor league starter Nik Turley. The team needed to open a 40-man spot for Chris Leroux, and I assume they’re trying to pull off the same maneuver that they used to get David Adams off the 40-man roster last year. Basically, there’s little chance Turley would have cleared waivers — he’s 24 years old coming off a decent year in Double-A — but he’s also been hurt since spring training, and the Yankees would seem to have a decent chance of getting him back on a minor league deal. Not sure it’s a slam dunk, but 40-man issues get quirky from time to time.

• Speaking of Turley, it’s interesting that the Yankees opened the season with essentially three different long relievers in the big league bullpen — Adam Warren, Vidal Nuno, David Phelps — but have spent recent weeks scrambling to add long men. Warren moved into a short-relief setup role, Nuno moved into the rotation, and Phelps has been used in basically every role imaginable. Chris Leroux has the job right now, but it’s worth noting that Chase Whitley went five scoreless in each of his past two Triple-A starts, and that Alfredo Aceves has pitched nine innings without allowing a run (he’s starting again tonight). The revolving door could open for one of those two at some point.

• Spring standout Zelous Wheeler was activated from the Triple-A disabled list today. He was hitting .421/.476/.684 in seven games before getting hurt, but he might have been activated a little too late to take full advantage of the Yankees early infield needs. Earlier in the season, the Yankees 40-man was thin on infield depth. That’s when they added Scott Sizemore for a few days. Now the team has Ryan almost ready to be activated, plus both Sizemore and Dean Anna on the 40-man and waiting in Triple-A for another opportunity. Wheeler’s played well, but he’s probably third on the infield call-up depth chart at the moment (fourth if you count Ryan).

Zoilo Almonte• The Yankees entire Triple-A roster has hit just nine home runs this season, and only one player has more than one homer. Zoilo Almonte has gone deep five times, including a home run in two of his past three games. That’s oddly the one thing that stands out about him. He has only one other extra-base hit, he has 21 strikeouts with five walks, his on-base percentage is .293 and he’s been thrown out in two of his four stolen base attempts. Weirdest stat of all for Almonte: He’s hitting .345/.390/.636 against right handers, but he’s literally hitting .000/.043/.000 against lefties. He’s walked once against a left-hander, but he’s otherwise 0-for-22 with seven strikeouts. He’s always been better against righties, but that’s pretty extreme.

• Now that the Yankees seem to have regained some faith in Preston Claiborne and added Matt Daley to the 40-man roster, Mark Montgomery wouldn’t seem to be particularly close to a call-up. He’s still an interesting relief prospect, though. Coming off his first rocky season, Montgomery has returned to Triple-A where opponents are hitting just .135 against him. He’s struck out 12 in 11 innings — not the rate he was putting up in the low minors, but still awfully good — but he’s walked six already, including two in each of his past two outings. This time last year Montgomery seemed like he might be on the fast track, but now he’s kind of reestablishing himself.

• After getting off to a rough start in Double-A, second base prospect Rob Refsnyder has gotten his bat going. He was hitting just .154 through his first 11 games, but Refsnyder had two hits in his 12th game and three hits in his 13th. He’s now up to .282/.356/.410. In his past 13 games, Refsnyder has walked seven times and struck out five times. The ratio was skewed the other way when the season started. He’s also made just two errors so far, which doesn’t seem too bad for a guy relatively new to the position.

• Offensive firepower in Trenton comes from No. 3 hitter Rob Segedin and cleanup hitter Gary Sanchez. Hitting back-to-back in the order, Segedin has a .308/.448/.500 slash line with more walks (13) than strikeouts (7), while Sanchez his hitting .299/.382/.493 with five RBI in his past two games. Sanchez is simply continuing to establish himself as a standout bat in the minor league system, while Segedin is doing his part to get back on the radar after a season lost to injury.

Pinder• A Double-A pitcher to keep in mind: Reliever Branden Pinder has always been a legitimate bullpen prospect, and this year he’s off to a tremendous start in Trenton. After struggling a little bit at that level last season, Pinder has allowed just four hits and one walk through 11 innings out of the Trenton bullpen. He’s struck out 10, and his only walk and two of those hits came in his first appearance of the year. He has yet to be charged with a run. Pinder’s a big dude. Worth keeping in mind as at least a Triple-A possibility for later this year.

• Last year’s Yankees breakout star was Peter O’Brien, and he’s kept pace so far this season. Getting a little bit of time in right field — but still mostly catching — O’Brien is hitting .354/.388/.759 through 79 at-bats with High-A Tampa. He has two hits in each of his past four games, and he’s homered in two of his past three. He’s a huge guy who seemed to make a positive impression by the way he carried himself in big league camp this spring. I have no idea where he’ll ultimately play — defense has long been a question with him — but so far, the bat is impossible to ignore.

DePaula• Given another shot at the High-A level, Rafael De Paula seems to have made some improvements this season. Through his first five starts, De Paula has a 2.96 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 33 strikeouts through 24.1 innings. De Paula put up numbers like that in Low-A Charleston last season, but he struggled after a mid-season bump up to Tampa. Also in this year’s Tampa rotation, Manny Banuelos has a 0.95 WHIP through five starts, but the Yankees have yet to let him go more than three innings. He’s had one bad start — four runs in two-thirds of an inning — but the other four have been outstanding.  Not as recognizable of a name, but Eric Wooten has a 1.21 WHIP out of that Tampa rotation while five different relievers have sub-1.00 WHIPs. As a team, that Tampa staff as a 3.22 ERA this season.

• Down in Low-A Charleston, starting pitcher Caleb Smith has been named the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week after a career-high 13 strikeouts through six shutout innings. It was the most strikeouts in one game for a RiverDogs pitcher since the team became a Yankees affiliate in 2005. Smith has a 0.89 ERA through his first four starts this season, and pitching performances like that have been an early trend in Charleston. Emerging prospect Luis Severino has a 1.89 ERA through five starts and relievers Philip Walby, Cesar Vargas and Nick Rumbelow are each striking out well over a batter per inning.

Judge• Not at all the first month that I was expecting from Aaron Judge. One of last year’s top draft picks has been awfully good as Charleston’s everyday right fielder, but he’s done it with a .333 batting average, .451 on-base percentage and only four extra base hits through 75 at-bats. Judge’s high-profile upside seems to be built around his power potential, but right now he’s been more of a steady and patient hitter than a true slugger. I’m guessing the power will come — it’s hard to see this kid in person and not imagine him hitting Darryl Strawberry-like homers — but so far he’s been a different kind of really good hitter.

• Worth mentioning that Charleston’s shortstop duo of Tyler Wade and Abiatal Avelino has been awfully good early in the season. In spring training Mark Newman told me he expected one of those two — probably Wade — to stay behind in extended spring so that both could keep playing shortstop, but it seems Wade played his way onto the Charleston roster. He’s hit .292/.373/.333 while getting time at second and short. Avelino, who’s probably the team’s top shortstop prospect at this point, is hitting .286/.348/.369 with nine stolen bases. Their middle-infield partner Gosuke Katoh has struggled after last year’s standout debut. He’s struck out 31 times in 18 games, and he’s hitting .175/.333/.281.

• Looking for an early surprise in the minor league system? Check out Charleston first baseman Mike Ford, who signed as a non-drafted free agent last season and has gotten off to a .343/.405/.500 start in Low-A. He didn’t hit a ton in his half season last year, but he did draw a lot of walks. I’d never heard of the kid until I started noticing his numbers a few weeks ago. If he keeps this up, I’m not sure what the Yankees will do with him. I assume Greg Bird will be activated in Tampa fairly soon, and that Tampa team is already giving its regular DH at-bats to Bichette. Could be just a small-sample quirk, but it’s always interesting to see a guy kind of show up out of nowhere and play well. Stay tuned.

    Chad – another guy to keep an eye on in Trenton is Kyle Roller. Dude has 7 home runs in 45 at bats with a slash line of .400/.491/.956

    Given his age (26) Yankees should move him to AAA today to see if that power can play at the next level and if it does, find a fast track to put him on to the Bronx.

    I have no illusions about him being some stud late bloomer – but if you can catch some lightning in a bottle why the heck not?

  2. Chip April 28th, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    Quite frankly I would move Roller to AAA if for no reason other than to open up a spot in Trenton for Peter O’Brien.

    Roller and O’Brien are both older for their leagues (Roller by a year and a half and O’Brien by a few months) and both have shown they can hit at the level they’re currently at – so fast track them and see if they can bring it at the next level.

    Yeah, I was expecting a longish swing, more like O’Brien’s, and a guy who has trouble with breaking stuff. Instead, his swing had a flatter plane than I expected, and he hit line drives that rose with distance, but they weren’t flyballs. Laid off breaking pitches that weren’t strikes very nicely, and has a really wide-legged base that keeps him, I suppose, able to reach low pitches and gives him the great rootedness he seems to have. Overall, patient with a plan and obvious natural thump in the bat. He walked I think 3 times, too. What I really liked, too, was how well he ran. This was off two live games I saw in Lakewood. He’s not long for the SALLY, I would say.

  4. J. Alfred Prufrock April 28th, 2014 at 6:07 pm

    Roller has nice opposite field power. Unlike Judge, he’s a flyball hitter. He always seems to get hits when I am in Trenton. Not a bad fielding 1B, either, and of course, he’s left-handed, but most of his hits go to left field. Too bad he got slowed by injury.

    Like I said, at his age and given his production thus far, I would cut Russ Canzler, promote Roller and then you’ve killed two birds with one stone – you are advancing this hitter and making space at AA for O’Brien who also needs to be advanced.

  6. hardwired7 April 28th, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    This is the type of post we would never have gotten from Pete Abe.

  7. J. Alfred Prufrock April 28th, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Canzler is a complete cipher.

  8. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 28th, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Did Pete O’Brien play at the U (miami)? If so, i watched him hit a ball farther than the light tower atMark Light Stadium or Alex Rodriguez stadium whatever they are calling it. That kid has some serious power. The ball traveled farther than any ball i watched Pat Burrell hit as a freshman at the U.

  9. Chip April 28th, 2014 at 6:31 pm

    See JAP – we agree on some things…

  10. Chip April 28th, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    My concern is that Roller be the next Luke Murton – a guy who just ages out of the system before the Yankees consider promoting him to a level where he could show some promise for the big club.

  11. bigdan22 April 28th, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    This is my post on Mike Ford from April 9th on this blog. Fascinating guy. He left a game for a pinch runner a couple games ago and hasn’t been heard from since. Anybody know anything. He’s def someone to root for:

    You guys want a feel good story for the morning? How many of you have heard of Mike Ford? I hadn’t until yesterday. Apparently he’s tearing it up in his first week in the Sally league for Charleston. He’s a 21 year-old left-handed first baseman. I did a quick Google search and this is what I found out.

    Mike Ford was last year’s Ivy League Player and Pitcher of the Year for Princeton. He went undrafted in June and entered the Cape Cod League. There he proceeded to lead that league in hitting (.407), slugging (.663) and OBP (.495). Several teams took notice, but Ford grew up in NJ idolizing Mo and Tino. He signed with the Yanks and went to Staten Island last July. Didn’t hit a whole lot last year (.235) in about 100 ABs but he walked quite a bit. The Yanks must have thought enough of him to hand him the starting first base job in Charleston this year. So far he’s OPSing over 1.200.

    So now we have Solarte and Ford to root for. Fat City!

  12. pete2 April 28th, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    Yankees 7-3 in close games (with 3 runs) which helps explain their deviation from the pythag record. The blow out losses skew the run differential so there is that too.

    Just taking a snap shot on where the Yankees offense/pitching/defense is ranked in the AL

    OBP-8
    SLG-6
    OPS-7
    HR-8
    BB-10
    K-8
    *SB-2
    R-8

    *OPS w/ROB-12
    *HR w/ROB-14

    Room for improvement there

    Starting Pitching

    ERA-8
    IP-8
    *HR-1 (most in AK)
    OPS-10
    *BB-15 (fewest in AL)
    *K-3

    Bullpen

    ERA-8
    *IP-11
    HR-5
    OPS-8
    BB-7
    *K-2

    Overall FIP – 8

    Fielding

    FanGraphs Def-8
    UZR-8
    DRS-5
    Errors-8
    *DP-12
    *SB allowed-15 (fewest in AL)
    Defensive Efficiency-8
    *Catcher Framing-1 (best in AL)

    I put an asterisk at some of the more interesting rankings

    Glad some folks are keeping an eye on Roller. His ridiculous OPS (1.500 until last game) and Zoilo’s splits are some the stranger phenomena of this early minor league season.

    Segedin and his .448 OBP might be the most interesting of the off-the-radar guys. I wrote about him in depth on Saturday. It wasn’t that long ago that he was a real bat-first prospect. The problem is, he’s 3b/DH and there’s about 20 guys between him and the major leagues. That’s pretty tough for a 25 year old who may be coming into his own after missing a season to injury.

    I continue to believe Sanchez and Refsynder are potentially the most important prospects in the Yankee system because of what they can mean to the big club when rosters are constructed next off season. It’s encouraging to hear Refs seems to be fielding well. Any eye-witness accounts would be appreciated. He was striking out every other AB earlier in the season but seems to have overcome that and is getting about a hit a game now. Let’s keep our fingers crossed on Sanchez. He keeps this up his prospect ranking may jump into Montero territory next offseason. Won’t that be sweet.

    Another note. Flores holding his own in AAA with a .379 OBP. More of the same from him. Slow and steady progress.

  17. bigdan22 April 28th, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    Mason Williams down to .216 after an 0 for 2 today’s game in progress. He continues to justify what little faith I’ve shown in him. He’s not striking out a lot though. I guess that’s a good sign.

  18. Hankflorida April 28th, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    GregD April 28th, 2014 at 2:01 pm
    Hankflorida…….I agree……we need Kuroda to get back to giving us 7-8 innings and we need more innings from CC and Nuno. I thought in Spring Training that Shane Greene might be a guy who can help us later in the year but they keep bringing him and slowing his development. They will only put Warren or Betances in the starting rotation if other relievers are added to the mix that can be counted upon……

    The question is who would be better to start between Warren and Betances and go deeper into games. There is no question that Betances has lightening stuff and can challenge hitters, but it is his wildness that troubles me, and to if he has to be replaced like Nuno or Phelps in the 6th inning because of his pitch count, then nothing is gained. The bullpen must be preserved for the dog days of summer. I would not like CC to alter his Al Leiter way of pitching with his nibbling or push Pineda beyond his limit after his surgery; so, it boils down to Tanaka, Kuroda and Warren or Betances to hold the fort. If Nuno or Phelps can nibble into the later innings then our problem is solved as it would nice to have Thorton, Betances, Warren, Kelley and Robertson take the role of Mendoza, Stanton, Nelson Rivera and Wettland.

    I have been glad to see you crossed the road and made your return. Hopefully, all will be well.

    Despite not posting for awhile, I hope you were able to keep up with all the brilliant ideas I have had. If you did, please remind me.

    My boy Zoilo with another homer, his 6th. Batting left-handed of course. He just rakes that way. He and Ichiro would make an interesting platoon.

    I saw some pictures of Tupelo MS after a tornado went through today… Destruction everywhere; I looked closely – I’m almost sure the picture was taken at the hotel I stayed at while there… sort of a weird feeling to see it.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with baseball but if we’re posting movie lines, I gotta include this:

    “It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.”

    “Hit it.”

    My boy Zoilo with another homer, his 6th. Batting left-handed of course. He just rakes that way. He and Ichiro would make an interesting platoon.

    It could only happen if Gardner was not here, and if Almonte can take advange of the right field porch with Beltran, they would be playing on each side of the greatest table setter in baseball makes for a potent offense. Since this was not Cashman’s plan, it will never come to pass as we are destined to have an outfield of two table setters and Beltran.

    JAP,

    If you are still around..You got to see Severino right? How did he looked?
    ///

    He was great. Started off wild, couldn’t find the strike zone, settled down, threw a great changeup, 94, 95 on fastball, slider down in the zone (slider was not as good as the change). He changed speeds very well, including ranging from 89-95 on the fastball. Kind of reminded me of Jo-Ram’s start in same park in 2010, in terms of change and fastball spotting. Couple of 94s up got hit, but he was in control pretty much all the way, with the hitters having not much chance, especially when he was down in the zone.

    Looking forward to seeing more :)

    One of my favorite movie lines Dan…I loved the way the switch from past to present and back… Ramirez!!! Hello Pretty!!

    —–

    I’m pretty old and I just saw that movie for the first time about a month ago after years of baiting from buddies. It was just a really entertaining flick. I went online afterwards and did some research. Apparently there’s been several sequels, a TV show, a video game and they all pretty much sucked from what I read. But the original was pretty awesome. I think there’s another script working it’s way around Hollywood as we speak.

  58. luis April 28th, 2014 at 8:56 pm

  61. J. Alfred Prufrock April 28th, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    primo, effortless delivery. Some say he needs to work on mechanics, but I thought he had a nice fluid motion and easy gas. I wouldn’t necessarily pick up some subtle mechanical issue though like you might.

    He was golden, from my vantage point, once he settled down (after the first inning).

    Off to make sure my boys show up for the third.

  62. luis April 28th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    Dan,

    Pretty much..Those sequels and the tv series sucked..But the first one was ground breaking in it’s time..Loved the scene that goes from the Madison Square Garden to a loch in Scotland in the 15th Century…The music from Queen was especial

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    the 15th day of the fourth lunar month, during the second year of Jianning,[5] the emperor was presiding at court in the Hall of Warmth and Virtue.[6] He was just climbing onto his throne when a strong gust of wind suddenly blew in from the corner of the hall, whereupon he saw a big green snake fly down from the rafters, and coil up on the seat. The emperor fainted from fright; his attendants rushed him off to his inner palace, and the palace officials scattered. In an instant, the snake vanished. It began to rain and thunder violently, then it began to hail. This did not stop until late in the evening, by which time the storm had ruined countless homes and buildings. In the second lunar month, during the fourth year of Jianning,[7] there was an earthquake in Luoyang. Ocean water had also swept inland, and many of the residents near the coast had been carried out to sea by a great tidal wave. In the first year of Guanghe,[8] a female chicken turned into a male chicken. On the first day of the sixth lunar month,[9] a black haze, more than ten zhang in length,[10] drifted into the Hall of Warmth and Virtue. In autumn during the seventh lunar month[11] a rainbow was seen in the imperial palace, and in the side of a mountain in Wuyuan County,[12] a huge rift was created.[13] All kinds of unlucky events continued to occur.

En bref, la plasmine a été quantifiée en mesurant l’augmentation de l’absorbance à 405 en raison de clivage de la plasmine substrat chromogène spécifique N p tosyle gly lys pro p nitroanilide (Sigma Chemical Co.). L’analyse de tous les échantillons expérimentaux et courbe standard ont été réalisées dans 96 puits plats plaques de microtitration à fond (Falcon) en utilisant un lecteur de microplaques Thermomax (Molecular Devices Corp, Sunnyvale, CA). La courbe standard a été effectuée par incubation de 2 mM de N p tosyle gly lys pro p nitroanilide en présence d’une gamme de concentrations de la plasmine (Sigma Chemical Co.) de 1 à 10 4 U / ml à 1 10 2 U / ml. Pour mesurer la plasmine générée par les fibroblastes de la peau, soit 100 de milieu conditionné de fibroblastes ou de milieu témoin ont été incubées avec 100 de substrat de la plasmine. Les milieux témoins étaient les suivants: 1) DMEM seul, 2) du DMEM + 10% de FCS, ou 3) du DMEM + 10% de Ultroser G cultivées 20 h en l’absence de fibroblastes. Tous les échantillons ont été testés en triple. Les échantillons ont été incubés pendant 5 h à 37 absorbance a été mesurée, et l’absorbance d’arrière-plan à partir du milieu de commande a été soustraite de tous les échantillons expérimentaux et les courbes standards. La quantité d’activité de la plasmine présente a ensuite été dérivée à partir des valeurs obtenues dans la courbe d’étalonnage et présentées sous forme d’unités d’activité de la plasmine par 106 fibroblastes.
