Weekly Minor League Recap

AAA:

Jesus Montero, NYY, C, Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees (#3): Montero was injured for a couple of days (eye infection) last week and only played 1 game.  It seems to be a lingering issue, so stay tuned.

Brett Lawrie, TOR, 2b/3b, Vegas 51s (#40): The Lawrie call up will now be delayed for a couple of weeks, as the wrist injury is more than minor; he broke a bone in his left hand.  He still should get to Toronto once he heals up, as he was just days away from a call up pre-injury.

Adrian Cardenas, OAK, DH, Sacramento River Cats (unranked): Cardenas hit .290 in his last ten and only K’ed three times.  Since Jemille Weeks got the call up over him last week, not sure if there is any room for him in Oakland; then again, it is looking more and more like a lost season for the A’s, so no harm in giving Cardenas some MLB experience.

Jemille Weeks, OAK, 2b, Sacramento River Cats (unranked): Weeks got called up last week, and is hitting .333 with two RBIs, 1 K, and three runs scored.  He should stick around for a while, given Mark Ellis is on the DL.
