The minors on 7-25-14.

AAA: SWB won the completion of the suspended game, 12-4, and then went on to win the regularly scheduled game as well.

In the suspended game, 2b Rob Refsnyder had 2 hits, which were a double and a solo HR. RF Zoilo Almonte had 4 hits, 3 of them HR, and drove in 7 runs. SS Carmen Angelini 3 h, 2 rbi. C Austin Romine 3 hits. SWB had 18 hits for the game.

The regularly scheduled game only went 7 innings, then. SWB won that one 3-1. LF Taylor Dugas 2 rbi. C John Ryan Murphy 2 h, rbi.

AA: 6-5 win for Trenton. Luis Severino went four innings, 2 R, 6 H, 1 walk and 7 K. C Gary Sanchez 2 h, 3 rbi. DH Ben Gamel 2 rbi.

Yankees fans may remember a 3B that the Yanks had in the early 1970s named Celerino Sanchez. It’s just funny that for a while, Trenton’s battery in the game last night was Severino and Sanchez.

High A: 6-1 win for Tampa. 2 h, HR, 2 rbi 1B Greg Bird. RF Anderson Feliz 2 h, 2 rbi. LF Jose Rosario 3 h, rbi. Caleb Smith, 6 IP, 1 R, 2 h. He was recently promoted from low A Charleston. He’ll be 23 soon and the lefty is 7-7, 2.79 in 20 starts overall this season. 91 K in 90 1/3 IP.

Low A: Charleston won 10-3. 3B Miguel Andujar 2 h, 3 rbi. DH Tyler Wade 4 h, 2 rbi.

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 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, 6-3-14

Lots of player movement due to injuries right now. A couple on the DL include Dean Anna and Ramon Flores.

AAA: SWB lost 7-6. 3B Zelous Wheeler and LF Russ Canzler 2 RBI each.

AA: Trenton won 8-3. Manny Banuelos two scoreless innings, 4 K, but he hasn’t been stretched out all year. The most he’s gone all year is just three innings. Eric Wooten 1 R in 6 IP. CF Mason Williams 3 h, 4 rbi. 2B Robert Refsnyder 2 H, 2 rbi, HR (.322). 2B of the future? (Roberts is 36, we don’t know where Solarte may go…. and (ugh) A-Rod returns next year (and turns 40 in July 2015)).

High A: Tampa lost 8-0, getting just two hits.

Low A: 8-7 loss for Charleston. SS Tyler Wade 3 h, 3 rbi. C Eduardo De Oleo with a HR.

The minors 5/27/14

AAA: SWB won 11-4. Pat Venditte (3 IP, 0.00), Jose Ramirez (2 IP, 1.17) and Mark Montgomery (1 1/3, 2.35) combined for 6 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. Kyle Roller 2 h, HR, 2 rbi. Roller is 26, 6’1″, 250 and a lefty hitter. Between AA/AAA this year, he is hitting .348-12-31. He only plays 1B, so there isn’t any kind of versatility, but you wonder if he could one day be a callup to backup Teix, or trade bait to get something the Yanks need. DH Corban Joseph drove in four. SS Dean Anna 3 hits, 2 rbi. 3B Scott Sizemore 3 hits, rbi.

AA: Trenton won 3-1. Matt Tracy (5-2, 4.25) 6 2/3 IP, 1 R. 1B Tyler Austin with 2 hits and a 2-run HR.

High A: Tampa lost 9-6 in 12 innings. SS Cito Culver 4 hits, 2 rbi. 3 RBI for 3b Dante Bichette, Jr.

The minors on Sunday.

AAA: SWB won 2-1 in 11. Eric Ruth 1 R, 2 H in 5 IP. Not bad for an emergency call up from High A. (Chase Whitley scratched. Could be called up to the Yanks, what with CC on DL? Daley a short-term option and Whitley to start Thursday or relieve with Aceves starting?). DH Zelous Wheeler solo HR. LF Zoilo Almonte 2 h, rbi.

AA: Trenton lost 4-3 in 14 innings in the completion of the suspended game. Jairo Heredia again. 3 IP, 0 R, 5 K. INF Dan Fiorito actually pitched a scoreless inning. RF Pete O’Brien a 2-run HR. DH Ben Gamel 3 for 6.
