    2019 Adonis Rosa Performance Thread

    He was added to the 25 and 40 man rosters. He started the season with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, who sent him down to Trenton 4 times, and he came back up 4 times, all within 102 days. He can start or relieve, and he threw 98 pitches in relief in his last game, which was August 4. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp...ayer_id=650738 has his minor league statistics. His record and ERA are better for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (4-0, 3.45) than for Trenton (3-1, 4.60). He's 24 and pitched his first Rookie League games in 2014.

    The Scranton shuttle must create havok for the minor league rosters/managers. Not that the Yankees aren't of the ultimate importance but they keep sending tired guys down. Who pitches for Scanton if the constantly have guys on their rosters who can't go. That causes guys like Rosa to ride the Scranton/Trenton shuttle.

    Breyvic Valera. Joe Mantiply. Adonis Rosa. They have been coming up with some great names.

    I like players with swagger but Adonis the narcissist?

    He got a swinging strikeout on his fourth pitcher to the first career batter he faced, and he pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning after German pitched 7. With 1 out in the ninth, Renato Nunez hit his 26th home run to cut the Yankees' lead to 8-3. He got the next 2 outs to finish with 2 innings, only 1 baserunner (the home run), and a 4.50 ERA.

    Ryan Ruocco said he's the third MLB player named Adonis after Adonis Terry (1884-1897) and Adonis Garcia (2015-2017). I checked, and he's the first MLB with the last name Rosa if you exclude Mark DeRosa, Jorge De La Rosa, Rubby De La Rosa, and Dane De La Rosa.

    Nice job by the kid tonight!

    Even as the sun with purple-colour'd face
    Had ta'en his last leave of the weeping morn,
    Rose-cheek'd Adonis tried him to the chase;
    Hunting he lov'd, but love he laugh'd to scorn.

    That was Narcissus. Adonis really was beautiful. He had two A-list goddesses fighting over him.

    Yankees have had Hector Lopez, Orestes Destrade, Jason Giambi, and now Adonis Rosa. Not a bad start to a Greek Mythology team.

    Back to SWB.

    Happy for him, though. He’s one of those guys where if you casually follow the minors, he’d have one or two impressive box scores a year. So you’d ask the more informed guys, “Hey, we got something here?” and they’d say “Ehh, probably not.” I don’t remember him ever being considered in the organizational to 30.

    It's actually pretty funny how they keep cycling these guys through to chew up innings against the hapless Orioles. Good strategy and hilarious, the near-blatant contempt. It's almost like Cashman is looking out his office window and sees a guy wheeling a pushcart down on the street and yells "Hey you! Want to pitch a couple of innings tonight?"

    Yeah but death by pig is an awful way to go.

    If that were the price for 4 months a year with Persephone and 8 months a year with Aphrodite, I’d consider it.

    Austin Jackson's nickname was Ajax, does that count?

    Nah, nicknames don’t count. I know there’s at least one Apollo, probably a Hercules somewhere.
