AAA: SWB scored 8 in the top of the 11th to win 10-2. Luis Severino, recently promoted to AAA continued to impress. Recently I read about the Yankees maybe needing to add another starter? Maybe instead of a trade, they can promote from within. Nova will start his rehab on Monday with High-A Tampa and Severino is doing well (not to mention Bryan Mitchell). Promote from within. Severino pitched 7, 1 R, 4 H, 1 walk and 1 K. Scouts like him and see him as potentially a #2 starter. 2 h, 2 rbi for both SS Nick Noonan and 2B Rob Refsnyder. 3 hits, solo HR OF Ben Gamel (.324).
AA: Trenton won 4-3. Brendan Ryan 1 for 3 on rehab, and after last night’s botched popup in the Yankees’ game, and with Jose Pirela struggling a little, you wonder if Ryan is ready to be called up, replacing Pirela. Someone has to go if Ryan, the veteran known for his slick glove, rejoins the Yanks. You figure it’s Pirela going back down. 2 hits and an RBI for CF Jake Cave.
High A: Tampa won 1-0. CG victory, five-hitter, for Chaz Hebert.
A: Charleston won 10-5. SS Jorge Mateo 3 h, 2 rbi. 3 H, 2 rbi for 1B Connor Spencer. 2 h, rbi 3B Vicente Conde.
