The minors.

First off, I can’t recap the games I missed when I had no DSL/Internet access. Too much work.

I CAN tell you this. Top pitching prospect Luis Severino was promoted to AA Trenton. He started the year at Low A Charleston so this makes two promotions this year. 20 years old and now in AA. He pitched in the futures game. In his first game for AA Trenton, he got the win. 5 IP, 1 R, 2 H.

I hope they don’t include Severino in a deal for someone like Cliff Lee. I don’t want Lee, who turns 36 soon. Why take on all that $$$ ($22MM) for someone 36 next month and just off the DL? Not only that, Lee didn’t want to come to NY a few years ago. Why bring in someone who doesn’t want to be here? Remember the problems with Randy Johnson? Past his prime, didn’t want to be here…. the same could happen with Cliff Lee….

As for tonight, 7-21…

AAA: SWB got a run in the top of the 9th to win 2-1 on a SF by 3b Rob Segedin, just promoted from AA. For those following Jose Pirela (.313) and Rob Refsnyder (.290) there are the batting averages. Cashman has stated he’d prefer to keep Refsnyder in the minors. I disagree, unless Cashman has something up his sleeve like acquiring Marlon Byrd from the Phils. Byrd, a RHB, can platoon with Ichiro and give the pop that Ichiro doesn’t give. If not, then why not promote Refsnyder to platoon with Ichiro? Ichiro, 40, isn’t an everyday player. Refsnyder, a RF converted to 2b by the Yanks, has seen more time in his natural RF position lately. Bruce Billings 1 R in 7 ip, 4.94. Refsnyder had a double and RBI tonight.

AA: Trenton swept a DH.

Game 1: 4-1 win. Jaron Long (Kevin’s son) 6 IP, 1 R, 4 H. C Gary Sanchez, HR, 2 RBI. CF Jake Cave promoted to Trenton. Double, RBI.

Game 2: 8-5 win. CF Mason Williams 3 h, triple, rbi. 3 hits, double, solo HR, Pete O’Brien. That makes 30 HR for O’Brien between High A Tampa and AA Trenton. 1B Tyson Blaser 3 h, 2 doubles, 2 rbi. C Francisco Arcia 2 h, HR, 2 rbi.

High A: Tampa won 5-2. Rafael De Paula (6-5, 4.15) 1 R in 5 2/3, CF Danny Oh triple 3 rbi.

Low A: Charleston won 8-5. 17 hits. LF Brandon Thomas 4 for 4, 3 rbi. CF Mark Payton, 2 h, HR, 2 rbi. SS Tyler Wade 3 h, rbi.

Keep an eye on players… there have been and will be promotions.

The minors, 7-1-14.

AAA: Swb lost 3-2. Aceves 3 R in 5 1/3. Pat Venditte 5 K in 2 2/3 IP of relief, ERA 3.86. A bit inconsistent. He is the switch-pitcher that the Yanks have had for a couple of years now in the minors. 2 H, HR, 2 RBI LF Zoilo Almonte, who appears to be a better option right now than Soriano or Ichiro. Hey, bring him up, play him every day and see what you really have in him. You aren’t going to know by bringing him up and playing him once a week like he was before. Eventually you have to commit to him or let him go (sounds like dating, right?). RF Jose Pirela (.315, and also a possible replacement for Soriano/Ichiro) 2 hits. 2 hits for 1B Kyle Roller.

Earlier in the day, Jim Miller was called up for Jose Ramirez because the Yanks needed a fresh arm.

AA: Trenton lost 5-4, and it was a terrible outing for Manny Banuelos. He gave up two hits, two walks, got only one man out and all four runners scored. (L, 0-2, 5.09). Jairo Heredia relieved him and did well, 0 R, 1 H, 5 K in 5 2/3. LF Ben Gamel 4 hits and an RBI. C Gary Sanchez 2 hits. 3B Rob Segedin 2 hits and 2 RBI.

CC’s next rehab will be Wed. instead of Thursday.

CF Jake Cave 4 hits. 3B Dante Bichette, JR. 4 rbi. LF Jose Rosario 2 h, 2 rbi. 1B Greg Bird 3 hits, 2 rbi. Tampa banged out 17 hits and drew 9 walks.

Low A: Charleston scored 3 in the top of the 9th, but gave 3 right back in the bottom of the 9th to lose 9-8. 2b Gosuke Katoh, HR, 3 RBI. Paul’s nephew, Mike O’Neill with 4 hits.

The minors. 6-25-14

The minors 6-24-14

The Heath Bell experiment is over. The Yanks signed the ex-major league reliever a while back and released him after five games with SWB. There have been a couple of other moves due to people coming off the DL.

P Luis Severino and 1B Pete O’Brien will be playing in the Futures Game during All-Star Weekend.

Severino, 20, RHP. Between Low and High A this year, 15 starts, 3-3, 2.99.

O’Brien, 24 in a few weeks. Mostly a C, but also has played 1B, 3B and RF. Listed at 1B for the Game. Between High A and AA this year, .263-25-54. Was hitting .321 at Tampa with 10 HR, and since his promotion to Trenton has 15 HR but only a .223 batting average.

AAA: SWB lost 7-5. LF Jose Pirela (.320) HR, 2 RBI. C John Ryan Murphy double, HR, 3 RBI.

AA: Trenton lost 6-3. C Gary Sanchez a solo HR (.260-9-39). 2B Ali Castillo 2 hits, 2 rbi.

High A: Tampa won 4-3. Jaron (son of Yanks’ hitting coach Kevin) Long 2 R in 5 2/3 IP. 2-2, 3.38 at Tampa. DH Matt Snyder HR, 3 RBI. 2 hits for 2B Jose Rosario.

Low A: Charleston split a DH.

In the regularly scheduled game, Charleston won 6-1. CF Dustin Fowler a 3-run HR. Both SS Tyler Wade and 2B Gosuke Katoh had 2 hits, rbi.

In the makeup game from June 23rd’s rainout, Charleston lost 2-0 and got just two hits. Rookie Davis (3-7, 4.86) 1 R in 6 IP.

The Minors, 6-22-14.

Sorry for no report on the minors on 6-21-14, but with a long day on 6-22 (headed up to the Stadium for Old-Timer’s Day), there was no time for me to do a report. I’m no morning person, and the bus departed for the Stadium about 7:45 a.m. For me it was wakeup, shower, get my things together, and go. So no report for Saturday’s games. Sorry.

Also, for those wondering, I only do the top leagues. I wish I had more time to do Short-Season (Staten Island) or the Dominican Leagues, but I don’t, so I’ll just stick to AAA, AA, and High and Low A.

Here goes for Sunday’s games.

AAA: SWB won 5-4. Pat Venditte, the switch-pitcher, with three scoreless IP of relief (2-2, 3.92). 2 h, HR for 2B Robert Refsnyder, hitting .318 since his promotion from AA Trenton (where he was hitting .342). 2 RBI for C Austin Romine. 2 hits each for 3B Scott Sizemore and RF Zelous Wheeler. Refsnyder, 23, appears to be on the come (Roberts is 36, and to me, seems like a one-year stopgap), and Wheeler, 27, is intriguing. He’s hitting .317, and has divided his time between 3b, SS and RF this year. Although he hasn’t played much 2B (3 games) this year, he has played 90 minor league games there. If he keeps hitting, he could be a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy.

AA: Trenton lost 7-2. Matt Tracy 2 R in 5 IP. C Gary Sanchez 3 hits, 3B Rob Segedin solo HR.

High A: Tampa lost 4-2. Miguel Sulbaran 6 IP, 0 R, 1 Hit. CF Jake Cave and DH Dante Bichette, Jr. with 2 hits each.

Low A: Charleston lost 6-5. DH Dustin Fowler 2 h, HR, 2 rbi. 2B Gosuke Katoh 3 hits.

The Minors, 6-20-14

AAA: SWB lost 3-2. LF Jose Pirela HR, C John Ryan Murphy 2 hits.

AA: Trenton won 8-5. C Gary Sanchez 2 h, HR, 2 rbi. LF Ben Gamel 2 h, 2 rbi. DH Zach Wilson 2 h, rbi. SS Ali Castillo 2 rbi.

High A: Tampa lost 7-1. Just promoted Luis Severino 3 R in 4 2/3. CF Jake Cave 2 h, rbi. 2B Jose Rosario 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston lost 6-1. RF Mike O’Neill and CF Dustin Fowler 2 hits each.
