Yankees’ top prospect Jorge Mateo has been suspended for two weeks for popping off to the front office about a promotion from High A Tampa to AA Trenton. Apparently he said to release someone else so that he could be promoted. The suspension means that Mateo will not be playing in the Futures game.
AAA: SWB won 10-0. Remember a few days ago that I told you to watch out for Dietrich Enns? 7 IP, 0 R, 2 Hits. 3-1, 0.70 at SWB. Between AA and AAA, 10-3, 1.60 this year. Green is up, and for the time being anyway, has replaced Eovaldi in the rotation. Could Enns replace Pineda or Nova? 3B Donovan Solano 4 hits, 4 RBI….. but Headley has two more years on his deal unless the Yanks move him. Solano is hitting .305 with 39 RBI. OF Ben Gamel 3 hits, rbi (.300). Home runs for 1B Tyler Austin and OFs Cesar Puello and Jake Cave. Each had two hits, Cave with 2 RBI. All three are at .290 or better. 2B Jonathan Diaz 2 hits.
AA: Trenton lost 7-1. Lane Adams two hits.
High A: Tampa lost 7-0. Will Carter 2 R in 7 IP, then the bullpen fell apart. 2B Thairo Estrada 2 hits.
Low A: Charleston lost 4-1. Nestor Cortes 7 IP, 1 R, then the bullpen gave up more. OF Jhalen Jackson solo HR, 2 hits. 2 hits each for SS Kyle Holder, OF Cesar Diaz.
