Last time we looked at the recent ex-Yankees was already 3 weeks ago, Spring Training is flying by.
- Jesus Montero- The former Yankee top prospect, and now Mariner top prospect is 11 for 36 in March, with 2 homeruns and 3 doubles. That’s good for a triple slash of .306/.366/.556. The 22 year old and Felix Hernandez appear to be developing a good pitcher/catcher relationship, as well as a friendship for the two Venezuelans from Carabobo. Hernandez pitching to Montero was certainly a dream for us Yankee fans, unfortunately its happening in a different uniform. Also, apparently Montero can catch… fish.
- Hector Noesi- The other part of the Michael Pineda trade’s latest spring training outing came on March 13th. Due to the amount of innings he threw in Winter Ball, the Mariners were careful with the righty. In his game against the Brewers he went 3.0 innings, gave up 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run. Noesi did get a start on Sunday in Japan though. The 25 year old went 5.0 innings, giving up 6 hits, 3 runs, (2 of which came off this guy’s homerun) 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts.
- Andrew Brackman- Despite the chance to make the Reds out of Spring Training, the former first round draft pick by the Yankees continued his erratic ways in Cincinnati. In his 9.2 IP, the 6’10″ righty gave up 12 hits, 7 walks, 6 runs, and only earned 6 strikeouts. Brackman was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, and unfortunately all the Reds got was this short interview. I might miss Brackman the most this year, while he has clearly struggled to be successful with the Yankees, he was an easy guy to root for, and I feel like he’s bound to have a success at some point.
- Bartolo Colon- The big righty had a rough start when we last caught up with him, but his next was certainly a rebound. In his latest Spring Training start, Colon went 4.0 innings, giving up 3 hits and 1 run, and earning 4 strikeouts. Following that start on March 13th, Colon suffered some blister issues, causing a scratched start and a series of throwing session. His next start will be tomorrow when he faces the Mariners and Jesus Montero in Japan for the second official regular season game of the year. I’ll be rooting for him in my sleep.
