Roster Moves:

The Yankees called up Ian Clarkin and Omar Luis to Low-A. Both were pitching in extended prior to yesterday. Clarkin was the third first round selection for the Yankees last year, and Luis was the last major Cuban signing for the team. Luis was signed before the international spending limit was implemented. Both Clarkin and Luis are top Yankee prospect, though Clarkin is a lot better, and is a top ten Yankee prospect.

The Yankees made room for them, by releasing Andrew Benak, and sending Jordan Cote down to extended.

The Yankees also moved Caleb Smith to AA. Joel De La Cruz to AAA, and Nuding to AAA.

Hi-A Yankees lose 7-4 to Brevard County, in rain completed game.

  • CF Jake Cave: 1-4, 1 K
  • SS Cito Culver: 1-4, 1 K, 1 CS.

  • C Peter O'Brien 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 PB. 9TH homer of the year.  Probably time to challenge him in AA, especially since he already has 7 passed balls. No real point of sticking him to catcher if his power can play anywhere.

  • 2B Angelo Gumbs 0-4, 1 K.
  • RF Jose Toussen 1-4, 2 K, 1 E.

  • RHP Rafael De Paula 3 IP, 1 H, 3 ER, 6 BB, 4 K, 1/3 GB/FB. As many walks in this game as his last 3 starts combined. Maybe it was the layoff.
  • LHP Evan Rutckyj: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2/1 GB/FB.
  • RHP Kyle Haynes: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2/1 GB/FB.

  • C Eduardo de Oleo: 0-3, 1 K
  • LHP Ian Clarkin 5 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 4/3 GB/FB. Announcers commented on his nice curve and even liked his changeup. Also had a nice pick-off move, and got a runner.
  • LHP Omar Luis 2.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K, 2 hit batsmen, 6/1 GB/FB. Defense didn’t help, but he was always too wild. Hopefully he works on that, because he has a lot of potential.  
  • RHP Stefan Lopez 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1/1 GB/FB.
