Chamberlain has been effective with two strikes; he has gotten hitters to chase his sharp slider out of the zone 53 percent of the time. Opponents are 2-for-21 with 11 strikeouts on two-strike counts. But getting to two strikes has been a problem, as Chamberlain has allowed a .424 batting average [...]
Kevin Goldstein, the minor league expert for Baseball Prospectus, has been a big fan of Jesus Montero for a while, claiming that he has a special bat. However, even Goldstein has believed that Montero has no future as a catcher in the big leagues due to his defensive issues, but his bat will still make [...]
Phil Hughes pitched a great game last night against the Tigers, going 6 shutout innings while allowing just 2 hits. This performance has moved him off of the bust pile, as writers in NY rush to fawn over a guy they left for dead a few months ago. I thought it would be interesting to [...]
SI’s Jon Heyman is reporting that A-Rod is ahead of schedule, and will return to action sometime during the first week in May.
Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees have moved up A-Rod’s target date and are now shooting for a return to the team sometime in the first week of May, sources say.
Whew! I almost nailed the line on Phil, but I actually underestimated him a bit. I put him down for 6 innings (spot on), 100 pitches (he threw 99), 3 hits (he allowed 2), 3 bb (2 again), and 2 runs (Phranchise pitched shutout ball). Enough with the pleasantries, though, here are a few things [...]

This from Pete Abe, here. Sit back down, fellow Bleacher Creatures, this doesn’t apply to us. All you Grandstanders and upper deckers can stop reading as well. If you have someone in a funny hat driving you to work, don’t have to work at all, or occasionally confuse dollar bills with something you use [...]
Jesus Montero Hits Two More Out
Jesus Montero went 2 for 4 in Tampa’s early game today with two more home runs. He’s now at .371/.421/.614 on the season. At 19 years old, Montero’s start to the season has been fairly astonishing. Its always brightens up my day to think and write about Montero. He [...]
Here is a writeup from SWB Yankees beat writer Chad Jennings on Phil Hughes’ last start for Scranton. It pretty much sums up exactly what I feel we should see tonight. I’ll break it down by pitches below:
Fastball: Phil will be throwing a 90-93mph 4-seamer that is relatively straight but has good late [...]
