The Cash Register is a regular feature in which we chart how former Yankees who were traded away are faring this season.

• Seattle catcher Jesus Montero: A nice week for Montero as he boosted his batting average to .266 and his on-base percentage is now above .300. He hit a home run on Saturday against San Francisco.

• Seattle starter Hector Noesi: Noesi's nightmare season continues as two losses last week dropped him to 2-8 on the year with a 5.69 ERA. Over his last 10 starts, he's 1-6 with a 4.83. The move from the bullpen to the rotation clearly hasn't gone as planned.

• Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy: Kennedy went 0-2 last week, losing against Texas and Los Angeles. While Texas rocked him for six runs in 5 2/3 innings, he only yielded two over eight against the Angels. For the year, he's 5-7 with a 4.13 ERA.

• Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson: Jackson is 9-for-31 since returning from the disabled list on June 9 against Cincinnati. All his numbers are great, his OPS is .966 and he's getting on base at the top of that lineup.

• Detroit reliever Phil Coke: Coke had one of his best weeks of the season as he threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 3.72. In one of his appearances, he picked up the loss despite not giving up an earned run. He's 1-3 with a 3.72 ERA.

• Miami reliever Mike Dunn: Dunn has not been recalled from Triple-A after being demoted in late May. He has a 4.58 ERA in 12 games in the minors, throwing 17 2/3 innings and yielding 19 hits. He has walked seven as well.

• Boston reliever Mark Melancon: Since returning to Boston, Melancon has not given up a run in 1 1/3 innings. In two appearances against Chicago this weekend, he did not give up a hit and struck out one. He's been able to lower his ERA to 22.85.

• Pittsburgh pitcher A.J. Burnett: After beating Cleveland this weekend, Burnett has won six straight starts and is now 7-2 on the year. Even more impressive, he hasn't given up more than three earned runs in any of his past eight starts. For the year, his ERA is 3.52.

• San Francisco reliever George Kontos: Kontos has thrown three innings for San Francisco and has not surrendered a run. In those three innings, he has yielded four hits and struck out three. He last pitched in a loss for Seattle on Saturday.

• Washington reliever Tyler Clippard: Clippard pitched against the Yankees this weekend, throwing a scoreless inning Saturday. For the year, he's 1-2 with a 2.15 ERA. His WHIP is still excellent at 0.99.
