The NY Yankees Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, announced this week that they will be auctioning off game-worn jerseys from the 2009 season on Ebay.  Jerseys to be auctioned include those worn by Phil Hughes, Alfredo Aceves, Edwar Ramirez, Francisco Cervelli, Brett Gardner and Ramiro Pena – all players who won rings with the big league World Series Champions.

The jerseys can be found here.  It appears as if the club is adding more daily.  Right now, the top bid is $202.50 for a worn Cody Ransom jersey.  That auction is scheduled to end around 12:30 Monday morning while the other auctions end between Sunday and Thursday and the team has indicated that there are more to come over the next few months.

Interested fans can also email Mike Cummings at to get pricing information on purchasing jerseys outright.


In a press release issued today, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees have announced that four of their players, Shelly Duncan, Austin Jackson, Chris Stewart and John Rodriguez currently lead their respective positions in all-star votes.  At this time, Juan Miranda and pitcher Mark Melancon trail by only a few votes.

In AAA baseball, the fan’s votes count 33%.  The Media (33%) and managers (33%) make up the final voting percentages to choose all-star starters.

Melancon was on the Yankees staff earlier this season and did pitch well.  Jackson is in his first year at Triple-A and is doing well.  Duncan was a major leaguer for awhile and has a ton of potential, which unfortunately has been unrealized everytime he is on the Yankees squad.

I can’t speak about the other players – I don’t know much about them – but take 2 minutes and head to this website to vote Yankees!

PeteAbe also said that Dan Giese probably cleared waivers and will go to SWB. He also said that if any name is not on the list, it’s probably because he’s on the DL or left in Tampa for extended spring training.

In a move we all saw coming, the Yankees sent starting pitcher Phil Hughes to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre.  This had to happen.  Hughes has had an exceptional spring, which was preceded by a great off-season.  Hughes would most likely be in the rotation of most other big league squads.  With the Yanks rotation already loaded, Hughes will perform as the #1 starter over in Scranton and the “Sixth Man” in NY.

Hughes will most likely be the man called up to replace an injured pitcher in the Yanks lineup.

“He had a very good spring for us,” skipper Joe Girardi said Saturday. “I thought he attacked the zone. The thing is, we ran out of innings for him here and we want him stretched out. We can’t do that here.  We were very happy with the progress he made over the fall, into the spring, where he came from last year.”
