1. Remember Diego ( what's his name) who pitched 5+ no-hit innings of relief during the Chris Capuano, "melt-down," game? At 28, he is having arm surgery. And he showed such potential.
2. The aforementioned Chris is working out a deal to sell Furillo pre-owned vehicles in Syracuse, NY.
3. Mason Williams was not traded because he is having shoulder surgery today ( not a good prognosis for a prospect CF with upside potential). He should be in great shape to return to AA in about 2 years, when he'll still be only 27.
4. The Cashman inspired giveaway of Flores and Martinez yielded us a guy who, after 3
swings ( 0-3 ), is moving onto the DL. I guess Cashman doesn't believe in pre-trade physicals, or anything like that. Pineda came to us ready for surgery , as well, if I recall correctly. But Brian says, " he has no regrets and no hard feelings toward Seattle ( they have photos ).
5. Speaking of Michael Pineda, the Yankees announced today, " that they are hoping to have him back in September." But they neglected to mention the year.
See you tonight, then, at the stadium.
