The Cash Register

April, 26, 2012
The Cash Register is a regular feature of the blog in which we chart how former Yankees who were traded away are faring this season.

The former Yankees

" Seattle catcher Jesus Montero: Montero is batting .281 with two home runs and 11 RBIs. He's not walking much or hitting for power, but he's been one of the top two bats for Seattle.

" Seattle starter Hector Noesi: Noesi has struggled as a starter, going 1-2 with a 9.49 ERA. Noesi gave up six runs in 1 1/3 innings last time out against Chicago.

" Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy: Kennedy is 3-0 with a 3.86 ERA, continuing his excellence from last season. He gave up three runs over seven innings in a win against Atlanta on Sunday.

" Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson: Jackson is hitting. 261 with three home runs and five RBIs. He owns a .363 on-base percentage, an increase from his career average.

" Detroit reliever Phil Coke: The lefty is enjoying a solid start as he has a 2.45 ERA. He's averaging more than a strikeout per inning and has given up just two runs in 7 1/3 innings.

" San Francisco left fielder Melky Cabrera: Cabrera continues his hot hitting since he left the Bronx as he's at .301 with a .386 on-base percentage. He has one homer and 11 RBIs.

" Miami reliever Mike Dunn: After a rough outing against the Mets Wednesday, Dunn's ERA is 6.23. He has pitched just 4/13 innings but has given up four runs (three earned) this season.

" Boston reliever Mark Melancon: Melancon had a 49.50 ERA before being demoted to AAA. In three games with Pawtucket entering Wednesday he had yet to give up a run.

" Atlanta pitcher Arodys Vizcaino: Vizcaino, a minor leaguer, is going to miss the season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery. He is one of the top prospects in baseball.

" San Francisco reliever George Kontos: Kontos had pitched to a 2.35 ERA with Fresno (AAA) this year. He has given up just two runs in 7 2/3 innings spanning seven relief appearances.
