Morning Bits/Minor Notes: Cashman talking trades, RISP, Pineda, Aardsma

Good morning all.  Yankees got a loss last night but doesn’t look so bad after 10 wins in a row.  They did have several chances to win the game last night which did make it hard but oh well.   Today is a day game starting at 1:05.  Hanson vs. Hughes.

Enjoy the game and the day.   Now let’s get to the links…..

– Cashman had a lot of interesting things to say in a radio interview yesterday about Soriano and the trade deadline.  Johnette Howard from ESPNNY has all the details.

Wallace Matthews of ESPNNY reports that Swisher was 2-2 with RISP while the rest of the Yankees were a dreadful 0-9.

– Hughes looks to stay hot in the rubber game match today reports Teddy Cahill of MLB.com.

Steven Miller of MLB.com reports that Pineda visited with the Yankees and is progressing with his rehab.

– The other day Aardsma tossed a scoreless inning in his first rehab start. I said it before and I will say it again that that signing could be huge for the Yankees.

Bob Raissman of The New York Daily News writes that Yankees broadcaster Suzyn Waldman is standing by Roger Clemens.

– Staten Island Yankees took the loss last night 4-1.

– Gulf Coast Yankees lost as well 5-4.  Slade Heathcott (who you can read our interview with him from earlier this year right here)  went 2-2 with 2 doubles and an RBI.   I really hope he can finish strong with a healthy rest of the year.

– Tampa Yankees won 4-2. JR Murphy had 2 hits (double, 2-Run homer).  Rob Segedin and Kyle Roller each had a pair of hits as well.

– Trenton won 3-2. Luke Murton had 3 hits one which was a solo homer.  Mikey O’Brien went 6 strong innings only giving up one run.

– Empire State Yankees lost 4-2.  Only 4 hits for the team.  One of which was by Ronnier Mustelier who is batting .316.

  1. Can’t wait till the minor league promotions start happening soon. I want to see the ones who are doing well excel at the next level.

    • I’m very worried about the lack of position players in our system who look like stars. I look at Texas’ system and get terrified. They have a SS whose going to be the same sort of special player as Trout and Harper, probably the “Jeter” of his generation. I suppose before Hal took over I wouldn’t have been so worried. With his pledge to cut payroll and stick to it, and Tex and Arod sucking 52.5 million a year out, we aren’t going to be able to buy players. Unless Hank can stage a comeback, lol, we need to start developing players NOW.
