International League playoffs get underway

McAllister just won his first AAA start ever-in a playoff series clinching game. He was shut down earlier at AA for a tired arm/innings concerns-no injury though. Are you thinking of Garcia maybe?


Yeah, all Int'l FA-along with Hector Noesi-who got the win in relief of IPK the other night.


Phelps got rocked last night BTW, and that series is tied at 1.

International League playoffs get underway

McAllister wins his AAA debut, and the Yankees close out Gwinnett 12-3. They await the winner of Louisville/Durham in their second straight IL championship series.

Bigger news was one Ian Patrick Kennedy made the surprise start for Tampa in game 1 of the FSL championship. On a pitch count, he twirled 2 scoreless innings as Tampa won 5-2 over Charlotte.

Fantastic development.

International League playoffs get underway

No sweep for the SWB Yankees as Kei Igawa gets rocked to the tune of a 5 run 3rd inning. Yanks fall 8-5. A-Jax goes 2/3, and Juan Miranda hit a HR for the home team.

Tonight, the eagerly awaited AAA debut of one Zach McAllister.

Phelps and Mitchell have looked good.

I'm looking forward to next year, when hopefully Vizcaino and Banuelos will be in the rotation. Maybe not right away, but I think both could be fastracked a la McAllister.

LOL

No, Trenton didnt' qualify. They kind of went in the tank after Montero went down.


Nova got bumped from AA earlier, started well, then struggled, and now it looks like he's got it going again.
