Last night was Charleston’s Home Run Derby and All-Star Game. Of course, Jesus Montero was in both, and Montero finished second to Hagerstown’s (WAS) Michael Burgess. In the game, he started, DHing and hitting 6th, and went 0-2. Justin Snyder, Abe Almonte, Lance Pendelton, Jason Stephens, and Jon Ortiz also appeared in the game. Of the prospects:
Snyder: 1-2, R, K
Almonte: 0-2, K
Both came in the sixth.
In other news, the Staten Island Yankees (A-) started their season. There aren’t many prospects on the team, but the players worth looking at are Taylor Grote, David Adams, and Pat Venditte. Two sleepers on the team are D.J. Hollingsworth and Raymond Kruml. Anyway, it was a 3-1 loss to the rival Brooklyn Cyclones (NYM).
Lastly, C.J. Henry, the Yankees’ first rounder in 2005, returned to action with A+ Tampa on the night before last. In his first full day of action, he went 1-3 with a double.
