MLBTR Notes: Cashman, Brett Myers, Yanks’ Scouting

Here are some notes from MLBTR on the Yankees:

  • GM Brian Cashman told George A. King III of The New York Post that he isn’t getting any calls about trades just yet. “I am not getting calls,” said Cashman. “We have the farm system and money, but no calls … The headache stuff is available. The quality stuff is not available.”
  • Within the article, King notes that the team could look for upgrades at DH, in right field, and for the pitching staff. He says the Astros “will listen” to offers for Brett Myers, but the Yankees “don’t have a match.” King speculates that Carlos Beltran, Michael Cuddyer, and Vladimir Guerrero could be potential trade targets.
  • Dan Barbarisi of The Wall Street Journal wrote about the club’s pro scouting department, which helped unearth Bartolo Colon and others this offseason. “It’s easy to recommend a guy when the numbers are there,” said scout Tim Naehring. “The most difficult thing is feeling confident and putting in a report when the production isn’t there. The biggest challenge is sticking your neck out and saying,’I know there’s more in there. I know there’s better performance coming.’”

Bullpen Lets Up Early Lead, in 4-3 Loss

From MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

SEATTLE — The Yankees’ bullpen was lauded as an unquestioned strength heading into the season, but it was their weak spot on Friday in the opener of a nine-game road trip.

Clinging to a one-run lead heading to the sixth inning, two Yankees relievers frittered it away. A pair of soft run-scoring groundouts eased them along to a 4-3 loss to the Mariners at Safeco Field.

“We had a chance to win tonight and that’s disappointing,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “Whether it’s the first game or the ninth game of the road trip, that’s disappointing.”

The Yankees’ frustration was evident in the face of Eduardo Nunez, who pinch-ran in the eighth inning and pulled off a daring steal of second base, only to be picked off representing the tying run.

“I feel bad. It’s a big play in the inning,” said Nunez, who was nabbed by Jamey Wright. “The tying run is me. To get picked off, I feel so bad. It happens.”

Nick Swisher didn’t have a much better night. Swisher belted a deep drive to center field in the fourth inning that seemed like a sure bet to snap his prolonged offensive funk.

He never saw Franklin Gutierrez leap against the outfield wall and bring the ball back for an out. The look of amazement on the face of Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan told Swisher everything he needed to know.

“No chance. I hit that ball really well,” Swisher said. “What are you going to do? He looked like Michael Jordan out there on that play.”

That helplessness seeped into the bullpen as well. A.J. Burnett needed 97 pitches to get through five innings, so Girardi wanted Boone Logan to get an out before Luis Ayala got the ball to the later innings.

Burnett said he still had a little something left in the tank, but he couldn’t argue with the call.

“Those guys in the bullpen are there for a reason,” Burnett said. “A lot of walks [five] and I’m sure the 97 pitches had a lot to do with it.”

Logan once again couldn’t fulfill his assignment, as Adam Kennedy pounced on a hanging slider, the 11th hit that Logan has surrendered to a lefty in 32 at-bats.

Ayala allowed a single to Miguel Olivo and then issued a four-pitch walk to Carlos Peguero, setting up RBI at-bats for Ryan and Ichiro Suzuki.

Ryan bounced a ball to shortstop that was too slowly hit to turn a double play, tying the score, and Ichiro followed with a RBI grounder to shortstop that gave Seattle its first lead of the evening.

“You just find a way to push them across,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “Our guys did a good job keeping them in the middle of the field. That’s the separator right there. If you’re hitting those balls to the corners, you’re not going to score those runs.”

The silent rally made a winner out of David Pauley, who hurled two scoreless innings after promising starter Michael Pineda was hit for three runs in five frames.

Seattle had scored twice off Burnett, who knew that he’d sealed his own fate by needing to wriggle free of self-created jams too often.

“I was 3-1, 3-2 on a lot of hitters,” Burnett said. “At the same time, I was able to get out of it here and there. It definitely was the deciding factor in coming out, walks and a high pitch count.”

It might have been a different decision, Girardi allowed, if both of the Mariners’ runs off Burnett hadn’t come in the fifth on RBI groundouts by Luis Rodriguez and Justin Smoak.

As Girardi knows all too well, the crop of relievers he has on his lineup card isn’t exactly what he thought would be there this spring, but they must make do with few reinforcements available.

“Some guys are going to be expected to do a little bit more, that’s the bottom line,” Girardi said.

The Yankees saw flashes of the 22-year-old Pineda’s promise but were able to run up the right-hander’s pitch count and get him out after five innings.

“He had trouble with the strike zone,” Girardi said. “I thought our guys were patient off him and did a good job off him. He hasn’t given up a lot of runs.”

Mark Teixeira accounted for New York’s first run in the first, belting his 14th homer.

In the fifth, Pineda uncorked a nasty breaking ball that Alex Rodriguez waved at, but it skipped away for a wild pitch that scored Curtis Granderson standing up.

Booed as usual during his return visits to Seattle, Rodriguez then dropped an RBI single in front of a sliding Gutierrez, giving the Yankees a 3-0 lead.

“Growing up in the Dominican, I think he heard all about the Yankees and saw all those highlights, so he was pretty excited,” catcher Olivo said of Pineda. “I think he was overthrowing the fastball. But for five innings, they still only had three hits and that’s amazing.”

Pineda used 96 pitches in the effort, his 10th big league outing, walking five and striking out five.

“We heard a lot about him coming in,” Swisher said. “I thought we did a great job getting his pitch count up. We just kind of let it slip away from us. It’s a tough loss to take.”

Yankees’ Mariano Rivera becomes first MLB pitcher to appear in 1,000 games for same organization

New York Yankees can weather Rafael Soriano loss, but Brian Cashman can say ‘I told you so’

New York Yankees pitcher David Robertson and wife launch foundation to help Alabama tornado victims

MLBTR Notes on Soriano, Colon, Draft Picks, Texeira

From MLBTR:

  • A third MRI on Rafael Soriano‘s elbow has prompted the Yankees to send the pricey reliever to see Dr. James Andrews, report Mark Feinsand and Sean Brennan of the New York Daily News.  The writers note that this marks Soriano’s sixth elbow-related DL stint; he’s a survivor of Tommy John surgery and ulnar nerve transposition surgery.  I’m not sure what surgeries are left, but the decision by Hal and Hank Steinbrenner and Randy Levine to overrule GM Brian Cashman on this signing is looking bad.  If the team’s bullpen depth is compromised due to the Soriano injury, Cashman might be forced to throw more money and/or prospects at the situation.
  • A baseball official reviewed video of the procedures done on Bartolo Colon‘s elbow and shoulder, physician Leonel Liriano told Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger“I feel that they know that everything is good,” remarked Liriano.  MLB has been concerned that Colon’s stem cell therapy could have involved the use of HGH.
  • Our 2012 contract issues entry for the Yankees was published a week ago, check it out.  Many key players have unresolved contract situations.
  • Our post on each team’s draft picks reveals that the Yankees are one of 14 teams with two picks within the first 90.  The Yankees will sit out until pick #51 overall, the longest wait for any team aside from the Tigers.  The draft is less than two weeks away.

The Yankees have claimed Kanekoa Texeira off waivers from the Kansas City Royals. MLBTR on the signing:

Texeira joined the Yankees organization in the 2008 Nick Swisher trade, but he has never donned pinstripes at the Major League level. The Mariners selected him in the 2009 Rule 5 draft and kept him on their roster for two months before exposing him to waivers. The Royals then claimed the Hawaiian and kept him on their roster for the remainder of the 2010 season to earn his rights.

In total, Texeira posted a 4.84 ERA with 4.8 K/9, 3.7 BB/9 and a 52.2% ground ball rate in 61 1/3 innings of relief last year. He has struggled in 2011, allowing 13 hits and 3 walks in 6 1/3 innings without a strikeout. Earlier in the year, Yankees GM Brian Cashman claimed reliever Jess Todd, only to lose him to the Cardinals, soon afterward.

Yanks Again Rely on Long-Ball in 7-3 W

From MLB.com’s Matt Fortuna:

NEW YORK — A day removed from his team’s second walk-off win of the season, a flashback to the fun of his title-winning team of two years ago, manager Joe Girardi offered a caveat when discussing the boost it could give the Yankees.

“As we know, momentum starts and stops with your starting pitcher,” Girardi said, “and Freddy’s throwing the ball well for us, and we need him to do it again.”

Freddy Garcia threw the ball well, allowing three runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 innings. But it was the long ball that helped the Yankees take the rubber match of their three-game series with the Blue Jays on Wednesday with a 7-3 win.

Andruw Jones went 3-for-3 with a pair of two-run home runs, the 41st multi-homer game of his career and first since May 1 of last year. That game, when Jones was with the White Sox, also happened to be at Yankee Stadium.

One night after driving in Curtis Granderson from second with a walk-off hit, Mark Teixeira plated the outfielder again, this time crossing the plate as well following a two-run homer in the third.

Already trailing, 5-0, Blue Jays starter Jo-Jo Reyes did not come out for the fourth inning, assuring him of his 28th straight winless start, a record shared by Cliff Curtis and Matt Keough.

Derek Jeter led off the first with a double, and Granderson drove him home with a double of his own. Granderson followed in the third with another double, continuing his tear through this six-game homestand, which the Yankees finished 4-2.
