This Prospect Roundup is brought to you by one of the most common elements in the universe: the walk-off Yankee win.
David Price went 5IP yesterday, giving up two walks and King a measly 9. Measly or ridiculous, I can't decide. Looks like his struggles are behind him. Now we will watch Tampa surrender a few more wins by keeping him in the minors and letting Jeff Niemann continue to suck. No big deal, its not like the AL East is competitive.
Matt Wieters followed his 2 HR bonanza last Thursday with another HR on Friday, going 2/3 with 1HR, 2RBI, 1BB, 1R and a K. On Friday, he went 1/4 with a R and a K. That one hit was a triple. Go Wieters go! His season line is now .280/.376/.477. Coming on strong now.
Sweet Jesus Montero went 0/2 with a BB, an RBI and a K on 5/15. He followed that on 5/16 by going 2/5 a double and a K. On 5/17 he went 0/3 with a BB and a K.
Brett Wallace continues to tear it up in AAA. On 5/16 he went 3/4 with a double, 2R and an RBI. On 5/17 he went 0/4 with 2 Ks. It happens.
Finally Andrew Brackman had a meh outing on 5/16, going 5IP with 5H, 2ER, 2BB and 2Ks. His season line is now 42.2IP, 42H, 19ER, 17BB and 40Ks. That's a K/9 of 8.44 and a K/BB ratio of 2.36. I'd like to see that latter ratio nudge higher by him cutting down on the BBs. Only 3 in his last 13 IP.
That concludes today's Roundup, brought to you by "Yankees win...THUUUUUU YANKEES WIN!"
