Scranton was postponed. They will play Durham tomorrow, down 1-0 in the series.
LF Ben Ruta: 0-for-5, RBI, 2 K
DH Isiah Gilliam: 2-for-5, 2B (1), K
2B Hoy Jun Park: 0-for-4, K
PH/2B Diego Castillo: 0-for-1
1B Chris Gittens: 1-for-3, BB, K
PR/3B Oswaldo Cabrera: 0-for-0
RF Alexander Palma: 1-for-4
SS Kyle Holder: 1-for-4, HR (1), RBI, RS
Holder struggled down the stretch (but still put together a solid season overall). This was obviously a huge home run that gave Trenton a 1-0 lead in the 10th.
3B/1B Max Burt: 0-for-3, BB, RS, 2 K
C Brian Navarreto: 1-for-4, 2B (1), RBI, RS, 2 K
CF Rashad Crawford: 1-for-4
RHP Rony Garcia: 3.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
As stated, Garcia is not popping up on Top 30 lists, but don't let that fool you: There is some talent to tap into here, and while he was erratic at this level, he showed glimpses of real prospect talent.
LHP James Reeves: 3.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K
What a performance! 11 up, 11 down.
LHP Trevor Lane (W, 1-0): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K
Both Reeves and Lane are legitimate left-handed relief prospects – but I don't know what their futures would be within the Yankees' organization. They are best off if another team sees value, like the Rockies did with Phillip Diehl.
RHP Daniel Alvarez (S, 1): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
He uses his curve as his big out pitch, and he doesn't throw extremely hard (89-92). That likely means that late-inning, high-leverage work is not in his future – but a pitcher with a good out pitch can always find value in the middle innings. He also features a change-up (I am getting much of my information on him by listening to the broadcast tonight!)
