The minors.

I’m heading away for the weekend so no reports for a couple of days.

AAA: SWB lost 5-1, getting just three hits. HR SS Carmen Angelini.

AA: Trenton won 3-0. Jaron Long, son of Yanks’ hitting coach Kevin Long, pitched 8 shutout innings. He is 6-1, 2.54 at AA this year, 11-4, 2.25 overall between Low A, High A and AA. He is a 22 yr. old righty. DH Rob Segedin 3 h, triple, rbi. 3B Dante Bichette, Jr. 2 hits, rbi, same with SS Ali Castillo. Two others with two hits each.

High A: Tampa won 10-6. 1B Rey Nunez 3 hits, double, 2 HR, 4 rbi. LF Ericson Leonora solo HR. C Trent Garrison 2 rbi. DH Mike Ford and CF Mark Payton each had 2 hits, rbi. Aaron Judge 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston won 12-0. SS Abiatal Avelino and 2B Tyler Wade with solo HR, Wade had 3 hits. 1B Bubba Jones with 2 doubles, 2 rbi. RF Yeicok Calderon 2 hits, rbi.

The Minors.

AAA: SWB won 5-1. Nik Turley 5 2/3 IP, 0 R. CF Antoan Richardson 2 H, HR, 2 RBI. 2B Robert Refsnyder 2 hits, RBI. 1B Kyle Roller 2 h, HR, 2 RBI.

AA: Trenton lost 4-1. Jaron Long, son of Yankees’ pitching coach Kevin, 2 R in 7 IP (L, 5-1 at AA, 2.74. For the season, 3 levels, Charleston/ Tampa / Trenton 10-4, 2.29 in 24 games, 14 of them starts).

High A: Tampa rained out.

Low A: Charleston lost 6-5 in 11. LF Yeicok Calderon 2 h, HR, 2 RBI. C Eduardo De Oleo 2 RBI. 3B Miguel Andujar 3 hits, 1B Mike Ford 2 H, RBI. 2B Tyler Wade 2 hits.

The minors.

Michael Pineda had his first rehab stint, pitching 3 1/3 innings for SWB and hitting 94 on the gun. Maybe he’ll be back with the Yanks soon. Today, Monday, Masahiro Tanaka will toss and see how he is progressing before the Yanks decide on some rehab outings for him.

AAA: SWB won 3-1. Pineda 3 1/3 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 1 walk and 4 K. 1B Kyle Roller 2 h, HR, 2 rbi.

AA: Luis Severino was scratched due to very slight soreness in his left oblique. Nothing with his pitching arm, thankfully. Yanks playing it safe with the top prospect. Trenton lost 4-1. 3B Dan Fiorito 2 hits, HR.

High A: Tampa lost 9-1 in a rain-shortened 7-inning game. They only got two hits, one a solo HR by RF Aaron Judge. Jacob Lindgren 1 IP, and all 4 men struck out. Yes, four. He threw two wild pitches and on one of them, the batter reached. I won’t be surprised to see Lindgren in AA soon, even though the top draft pick hasn’t pitched in the Yanks’ minor league system for long. His numbers in A ball are just ridiculous. In 13 1/3 innings since the Yanks drafted him, he is 1-0, 0.68, has 30 strikeouts and just four walks.

Low A: 8-1 Charleston win. Rookie Davis (6-8, 4.50) 6 IP, 1 run. 1B Mike Ford HR, 4 rbi. SS Abiatal Avelino 2 hits, 3 hits and an rbi for 2b Tyler Wade.

The minors.

AAA: SWB won 7-2. Bryan Mitchell (3-1, 2.88) 2 R in 5 IP. HRs by 1B Kyle Roller and RF/3B Adonis Garcia, who had 3 hits and 3 RBI. LF Taylor Dugas had three hits.

Michael Pineda should be pitching for SWB on Sunday.

AA: Trenton won 5-1. Good news. It seems like Manny Banuelos may finally be coming around after that Tommy John surgery. In his last three appearances, Banuelos has pitched 14 innings, has given up just two runs, only one of them earned, on just three hits. He has walked four and struck out 11 in that timespan (July 22nd on). Last night he pitched five innings, gave up 1 R, 1 H (a HR), three walks and four K. I wouldn’t expect him as a late season callup, but it seems like he may finally may be getting back to what he was before the surgery. Hopefully it is a good sign for 2015 for AAA or maybe later in 2015, the majors. It was BanuAelos’ first win of the season (1-3, 4.37). 3 hits, solo HR, RF Tyler Austin. SS Ali Castillo with a three-run HR.

High A: 6-4 win for Tampa. LF Anderson Feliz 2 hits, HR, 3 rbi. 1B Greg Bird 3 hits, rbi. SS Cito Culver 4 hits. RF Aaron Judge and C Trent Garrison each had two hits.

Low A: Charleston won 4-2. CF Mark Payton 3 hits. SS Tyler Wade, 3B Miguel Andujar and 1B John Murphy two hits each, rbi for Wade and Andujar. LF Michael O’Neill (Paul’s nephew) 2 RBI.

The minors.

I was underwhelmed and not thrilled with the Yanks’ moves at the trade deadline yesterday. You can read my previous post for my opinion(s).

One thing I didn’t mention in that post is that there is a 27-year-old Cuban defector, Rusneys Castillo, who each team is looking at. The speedy OF is a righty-hitter who has good opposite-field power. The Yanks sent four scouts to look at him and many other teams are after him too. Estimates say it’ll take $30-$45 million to sign him. Jay-Z is his agent, which may or may not be a good thing (think Cano). So we’ll see if the Yanks are in play for him. Despite the Prado acquisition, getting someone in their prime like Castillo would be a plus.

AAA: Scott Sizemore was released. SWB won 8-4. Bruce Billings 1 R in 6 IP. Pirela and Refsnyder at it again (I wanted both called up. Instead the Yanks went out and got Drew and Prado). LF Pirela (.313) 3 hits, single, double, triple. Refsnyder, who now will concentrate solely on 2B, 2 hits, 2 RBI (.301 at AAA after .342 at AA). 2 hits, solo HR for C John Ryan Murphy.

AA: 2-1 win for Trenton. 6 2/3 shutout innings, with 8 K for hitting coach Kevin Long’s son Jaron (4-0, 2.73 at AA). RF Jake Cave 2 hits, 2B Casey Stevenson 2 h, rbi.

High A: 3B Eric Jagiello 2 h, rbi as Tampa lost 7-3.

Low A: Charleston lost 1-0, getting (and giving up) just three hits. DH Tyler Wade 2 hits. Chaz Hebert the tough-luck loser, 7 IP, 1 R (unearned), 2 H.

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.
