So, How Goes It In The AFL?

Were the Arena Football League still around, it might be a bit confusing for some for me to report on the Yankees farmhands that were assigned to the AFL.  But sadly — and I say that sincerely, as I really enjoyed my experience covering that league — the league has folded and the Arizona Fall League is the only AFL in town.

Now, the fact that just about as many people care about the Arizona Fall League — they routinely draw triple-digit crowds over there — as did the Arena Football League aside, here’s a look at how the seven Yankees minor leaguers playing for the Surprise Rafters are faring:

Brandon Laird: 2 GP, .818 AVG (9-for-11), 1 2B, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K

Austin Romine: 2 GP, .500 AVG (4-for-8), 0 XBH, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K

Colin Curtis: 3 GP, .333 AVG (5-for-15), 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 0 BB, 1K

Ian Kennedy: 1 G/1 GS, 1-0, 2.25 ERA, 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Mike Dunn: 1 G, 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 SV, 1 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K

Zach Kroenke: 1 G, 0-0, 9.00 ERA, 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Grant Duff: 1 G, 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 K
