Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?
Did the yankees sign Henn? Yesterday was the dead line to do so, I think.
This guy is FRAGILE, man. He spends an awful lot of time on the DL. Before you make this man the Savior at 1st Base, please remember Pat Kelly.
What's the score on Mike Frank? does he have any options left. Why haven't the Yankees brought him up? He's leading the Clippers with a .330 ba.(May20th)
The bats have a little second baseman-shortstop that can play.He is a good hitter and has great speed.He reminds me of Furcal of the braves.His nickname is Bernie.
from Joel Sherman writing for the MSG website (has he always worked for them too?)
Interesting that he lists Johnson's injury as a bone bruise to the hand, not a partially torn muscle in the thumb...
Yankees look to farm system for changes
May 29, 2001
The 2000 Yankees always seemed a work in progress. Taking a team picture never was safe. Wait hold on, let's get David Justice in focus...
Hernandez, Adrian 4- 1 .800 2.76 7 7 42.1 30 16 13 16 36
Will he be our next 5th starter? Is he ready?
Yankee faithfull, for what it's worth sounds like Ogea pitched ok...but a fastball in the low to mid-eighties?
Ogea makes first game appearance in almost one year
By Associated Press, 5/26/2001 14:44
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Chad Ogea threw two scoreless innings for the New York Yankees' extended spring training team Saturday in his first game action in almost a year.
The former Cleveland Indians right-hander was signed to a minor league contract by the Yankees earlier this month. He is...
Nick Johnson and D'Angelo Jimenez have both missed the last two games in Ottawa against the Lynx. What's the deal? Are they both expelled from Canada? Are they injured? Are they being rested? Are they about to be called up? I check their progress daily, and the two straight days of non-action confused me. Does anybody have more information?
This is from the Baseball Prospectus website:
Alfonso Soriano has gotten a lot of attention for his play, and Tino Martinez has managed to be adequate so far, but the Yankees could do themselves a huge favor by simply trading left sides of the infield with Triple-A Columbus.
Alfonso Soriano .291 OBP .406 SLG
D'Angelo Jimenez .350 OBP .380 SLG
Tino Martinez .360 OBP .481 SLG
Nick Johnson .451 OBP .571 SLG
Tomorrow is Dime-A-Dog Night at Cooper Stadium in Columbus, when all hot dogs are only 10 cents each. We always have promotions like this here in AAA land. Now that I'm back from college, I'll definitely go if I can find someone to go with me. It'll be good to see our young stars (especially the highly talked-about Nick Johnson) develop while I'm paying very little on stadium food.
I'll let you all know if I go and how the game goes.
Congrats to Randy!
Columbus pitcher Randy Keisler was chosen as one of the players of the week in the International League. Keisler threw a shutout in his only appearance, striking out four and walking one while allowing just one hit in a 4-0 victory over Indianapolis. The left hander had a no-hitter through 62/3 innings before allowing a double, then set down the final seven batters.
This cat is hitting .331-10-33 at Norwich.
I've always been told Norwich is a VERY tough ballpark to hit HR's in.
He's suddenly one of our top prospects who may be on his way to Eastern league MVP.

Yankees Prospect May Quit
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
David Walling, the Yankees' No. 1 draft pick in 1999, will make a decision on whether he wants to continue playing baseball in the next few weeks, his agent said yesterday. Walling, 22, left the Yankees' Class AA affiliate earlier this month, after a slow start, and is tending to what Mark Newman, the Yankees vice president, and Jeff Riolo, the agent, referred to as personal issues.
If he addresses those issues to...
Brandon is a LHP that went 5-2 with a 2.85 ERA in 9 starts at Tampa (A) before gettin a promotion to AA Norwich. He had 69 K's in 56 IP. Gave up 47 hits and 13 BB's.
In his first start at Norwich (AA), he went 8 1/3 innings allowing 7 hits and 3 walks while striking out 7. He is 1-0 with a 2.16 ERA.
Just a lefty to keep an eye on.
www.ouryanks.com is reporting that he has/is going to quit baseball.
Also, Tiger Wang is out for the season.
This is from today's Daily Prospectus at <a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com">Baseball Prospectus</a>...
"Ten months ago, the Red Sox absolutely had to have the collection of tissue and bone known as Ed Sprague, and paid dearly for their desire. They sent the Padres a right-hander named Dennis Tankersley, who has done nothing but get people out this year at Lake Elsinore: a 0.39 ERA in 46 1/3 innings, with 60 strikeouts against just ten walks."
Heh heh heh. Looks like we might...
They owe it to this guy to bring him back up with the big club. He has done everything asked of him, and now his knee appears to be almost back to normal. He has seen enough at bats in Columbus to be comfortable.
How bout showing some loyalty Joe? Forget Robert Perez- there is a reason why this guy has been in the minors the last couple of years. He is no better than Clay Bellinger. Forget H-Rod also- this guy is so washed up.
Let Shane play left, right, and DH against Lefties. Stop...
The Clippers lost 6-5 to Ottawa last night, but I'm sure the Yankees will let the Clippers lose as many games like that one as they want. If you look past the score, this was a great game for the Clips.
D'Angelo Jimenez and Nick Johnson had huge games. Each reached base four times, and Johnson added two doubles. The big night allowed Jimenez to push his OPS over .700 (.341 OBP, .373 SLG) after a terrible start to the season and Johnson to move his back over 1.000 (.453 OBP, .570 SLG). If...
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Rick Ankiel pitched to minor league hitters the same way he did to big league batters.
Ankiel, sent to the minors to regain his control, walked six and threw eight pitches to the backstop in three-plus innings in his first start for Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday night.
The St. Louis Cardinals left-hander, bothered by control problems since late last season, was at his enigmatic best against the Oklahoma RedHawks, striking out three and throwing four wild pitches. He...
I saw the Bridgeport Bluefish play the Newark Bears twice now. Tonight, Jose Canseco hit a moonshot that would have gone 500 feet had it not been for the hockey arena next door. Leyritz had a few hits. Other ex-major leaguers on Newark was Lance Johnson, Jaime Navarro, Ozzie Canseco and Jack Armstrong.
Vs Ottawa Despite giving up a 2 run homer in the 1st, Adrian apparently settled down and pitched a 7 inning 4 hit game.Columbus is looking very good with Johnson and Jiminez hitting the ball hard.
Canseco spins tall tales about his abilities
Dave Solomon May 09, 2001
I wonder if Jose Canseco can hear himself talk. I bring this up because Canseco, the larger-than-life Newark Bear, was spitting out conspiracies like they were sunflower seeds Tuesday during the Bridgeport Bluefish 9-8 victory over the Newark Bears in their home opener at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard.
Did you know that Major...
Lets hope Orlando stays in form and can bring home a win. Earlier today Adrian Hernandez posted his 3rd win for Columbus. Go El Duque!
Thought this might be fun as I love to hear about ex-Major leaguers working in the minors. Just last night I heard the name Mitchell Page for the first time in years. He's coaching for the Trenton Thunder in the AA Eastern League. Greg Maddox Jr. (son of the Phillies great) is also on that team. Add to the list...Where are they now?
If Chad Ogea's shoulder passes a physical, the veteran right-hander will sign a minor league contract with the Yankees. Ogea has been throwing for the Yankees at their minor league complex and shown enough stuff to get the Yankees' interest.
Ogea, 30, pitched briefly in the Indians' minor league system last year after trying to come back from shoulder surgery in 1999. He appeared in one game for Buffalo (Triple-A) and four games for Akron (Double-A).
Ogea's big league record is 37-35....
