Minor League Report. Not a good rehab for Cole. Move forthcoming?

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

After the Yanks’ loss to the Phils last night, Luis Cessa was sent down to AAA. No corresponding move has been made yet. With the Yanks facing three lefties this weekend against Boston (Rodriguez, Sale & Price) could they be bringing up either Tyler Austin or Brandon Drury? Especially with the struggles Bird and Walker have been having at 1B?

The Yanks now are 1/2 game behind Boston, but have the same winning percentage. They are 52-26, Boston 54-27. Meaning that in making up three games, the Yanks have to go 2-1 in them to be in a tie with Boston.

Wednesday’s minor league results:

AAA: A.J. Cole’s rehab assignment didn’t go well as SWB (37-39) lost 4-2 to Lehigh Valley. 1B Drury and DH Billy McKinney homered for SWB. Each had 2 hits. RF/LF Zack Zehner also had two hits, and those six hits were all of SWB’s hits. Cole didn’t get anyone out as he was on rehab, on the DL due to a pinched nerve in his neck. Nice relief job by Justus Sheffield.
