The minors.

Sorry for no minor league report yesterday, but I was busy and didn’t have the time to write one up.

AAA: SWB lost 6-5 to Lehigh Valley. Manny Banuelos went 4 innings, 3 R, 6 H, 1 walk and 4 K. CF Adonis Garcia 2 doubles, rbi. 3B Scott Sizemore solo HR. C John Ryan Murphy 2 hits, HR, 3 rbi.

AA: Trenton lost 3-0. Luis Severino (L) 4 2/3 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 1 walk and 4 K. C Francisco Arcia and 2B Dan Fiorito each had two hits. Severino, 20, is 6-5, 2.46 in 24 starts this year (combined leagues).

High A: 8-4 loss for Tampa. DH Mike Ford and 2B Jose Rosario 2 RBI each. Tampa has been eliminated from a playoff spot, so no teams A through AAA will be in the postseason.

Low A: Charleston won 6-1. Rookie Davis 6 IP, 1 R, 4 h, 2 walks, 9 K (7-8, 4.93). DH Mike O’Neill (Paul’s nephew) 3 hits, rbi. C Eduardo De Oleo 3 hits, rbi. 2 hits and an rbi for both 1B Jackson Valera and LF Brandon Thomas.

The minors.

AAA: SWB split a DH.

Reg. sched. game: They gave up 5 in the top of the 7th (7-inning games if DH) and lost 6-5. Rob Refsnyder (.307 at AAA) and Adonis Garcia each had two hits.

Makeup of 4/25 game:  8-3 SWB win. 1B Kyle Roller 3 for 3, double, HR, 3 rbi. SS Carmen Angelini 2 h, 2 rbi. 2 h, 2 rbi 2B Jose Pirela (.307).

AA:  8-2 win for Trenton. CF Jake Cave 2 h, HR, 3 rbi. 2B Dan Fiorito 3 rbi. LF Ben Gamel and C Gary Sanchez 2 hits each.

High A: 9-7 loss in 12 by Tampa which hurts their playoff chances. SS Cito Culver 4 hits, 2 doubles, HR, 2 rbi. 3B Eric Jagielo 2 hits, double, HR, 2 rbi. They are 3 back for the 2nd-half division title with just five games left.

Low A: Charleston won 8-0. LF Claudio Custodio HR, 2 rbi. 2 h, 2 rbi 3B Miguel Andujar.

Game 131. 8-run 3rd leads Yanks, 8-4.

The Yanks got nine straight hits off of David Price in the third inning, and used the 8-run inning to defeat Detroit 8-4 Wednesday night. The win put the Yanks at 69-62 for the season, six behind Baltimore, 2nd in the A.L. East.

They are 2 1/2 games out of the final wild card spot.

Shane Greene continued to be a revelation. He went 7 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 1 walk and 8 K. He improved to 4-1, 3.09.

Adam Warren 1 IP, 1 R, 1 h, 1 walk, 1 K 3.47.

Dellin Betances 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 1.52.

Derek Jeter got hit #3443 in the victory.

In 18 starts and one relief appearance between the two of them, fill-ins Brandon McCarthy and Shane Greene are a combined 9-4 with an ERA of around 2.80. They have filled in fine.

The Yanks signed Chris Young to a minor-league deal for some OF depth down the stretch. He hit .205-8-28, OPS+ 79 for the Mets this year and will be 31 next week. His 162 g. average for his career is .233-23-71, 19 SB, OPS+ 93. Low average, some speed and pop, lots of strikeouts. You hope he can run into one. A 20/20 guy if healthy and a regular, he was an All-Star for Arizona in 2010. In 12 postseason games, he has hit .326 with 5 HR. He is mostly a CF who has played a little of the corners. The Yanks released P Alfredo Aceves (just reactivated from a suspension) and INF Corban Joseph from their minor league deals.

 

 

 

The minors.

AAA: SWB off.

AA: Trenton won 5-0. Jaron Long (hitting coach Kevin’s son) 6 IP, 0 R, 3 h. He is 7-1, 2.30 at AA, 12-4, 2.15 overall this year. The righty turns 23 tomorrow. Jacob Lindgren 2 scoreless innings, 1 hit, 4 K.  Lindgren’s overall minor league record this year is 2-0, 0.73 and 48 K in 24 2/3 IP. 48 of his 74 outs have been by strikeout. CF Jake Cave 2 hits and an RBI.

High A: 4-1 Tampa win. Caleb Smith six shutout innings, solo HR for LF Ericson Leonora. CF Mark Payton 3 hits, rbi.

Low A: Charleston lost 2-1, getting just two hits.

The minors.

It doesn’t appear any of the top levels (AAA, AA, High A or Low A) will make it to the postseason.

AAA: SWB (65-72) lost 4-2. Preston Claiborne gave up 3 R in 2 IP. 1B Kyle Roller 2 hits, 1 rbi.

AA: Trenton (65-70) won 9-2. Dan Camarena 8 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 12 K. C Gary Sanchez (.269-13-65) a 3-run HR. CF Mason Williams with a Grand Slam. Solo HR for 1B Greg Bird.

High A: Tampa was off. They are 35-28 in the second half of the season, 2 games back with 7 to play. Their “tragic number” is 5. There is a chance, albeit slight, that they can win their division for the second half. They were 33-37 in the first half, 13 1/2 back.

Low A:  Charleston was off. They are 33-30 in the second half after going 33-37 in the first half.

High A and Low A leagues use split seasons.

The minors.

Since I was away for the weekend, I will only recap the Sunday games, not the Friday or Saturday ones. Sorry, but too little time and too much for me to catch up on now that I am back home (and I took today off from work in order to catch up!)
