Minor League Report. Peraza continues to rake.

I undergo surgery tomorrow, so these will be the last posts for a while.


AAA: SWB (8-3) lost 5-4 to Lehigh Valley. LF Ryan LaMarre 2 hits, RBI. He was called up after the game to replace Aaron Hicks since Hicks went on the I.L. 1B Chris Gittens 2-run HR (Time to bring him up and send Ford, hitting under .100, down?) Nick Nelson, who struggled earlier with the Yanks this season, 2 2/3 IP, no runs, 5 K.

AA: Somerset (7-4) won 5-3. SS Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR. 1B Dermis Garcia 2-run HR. Starter Luis Gil (one of their top prospects) 4 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 0 W, 8 K. 2.53

High A: Hudson Valley (5-6) lost 8-1. SS Oswald Peraza 3 hits, HR. (.349 with 5 HR)

Low A: Tampa (8-3) won 8-2. SS Anthony Volpe 2 hits, RBI. C Austin Wells 2 RBI. DH Jake Sanford 2 hits. RF Juan De Leon 2 hits, 3 RBI. SP Randy Vazquez 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 2 K. Reliever Michael Giacone 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 4 K.

Minor League Report.

AAA: SWB (8-2) beat Lehigh Valley 6-4. 3B Armando Alvarez 2-run HR. SS Andrew Velazquez 2 RBI. Adam Warren 2 1/3 scoreless relief innings, one of five pitchers.

AA: Somerset (6-4) lost 7-3. 1B Dermis Garcia solo HR, 2 RBI.

High A: Hudson Valley (5-5) won 9-4. 2B/LF Oliver Dunn 2 hits, 2-run HR, 3 RBI. SS Oswald Peraza (someone to keep an eye on) 2 homers, both 2-run shots, 4 RBI. LF/RF Frederick Cuevas 2 hits.

Low A: Tampa (7-3) won 7-4. SS Anthony Volpe 2 RBI. C Austin Wells 2 hits, 3 RBI. 3B/2B Max Burt 2 hits.

Estevan Florial was moved up from AA to AAA, I presume to replace Greg Allen on the AAA roster. I believe Allen is or will be called up to the majors to fill in for Aaron Hicks, what with Hicks’ injury. Allen is a switch-hitter, has played in 221 MLB games, all but one for Cleveland. .239 hitter, OPS+ only 70, not much pop (8 HR) but did steal 21 bases for the Indians in 2018.

Minor League Report.

Low A: Tampa (6-3) lost 3-2. SS Max Burt 2 hits, RBI.

It’s hard to report pitchers’ accomplishments right now. In all these games, there have been three or more pitchers used. See the AA game above. It’s hard to report accomplishments, when, even if a pitcher did well and started the game, he didn’t even pitch four innings.

Minor League Report.

Disappointing outing for Deivi Garcia 3 1/3 IP, 5 R, 3 H, 7 W, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR, 1 HBP. Addison Russ 4 R in 1 IP. Nick Goody 2 runs in 2 IP. SWB pitchers walked 13.

Minor League Report. Voit looking good.

AAA: SWB won 7-5. 1B Luke Voit 2 hits, 2-run HR. Miguel Andujar (playing LF) 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR (Voit and Andujar HRs back-to-back). OF Trey Amburgey solo HR. Brody Koerner started, 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H. Adam Warren 1 1/3 scoreless IP, 3 K. Trevor Lane 2 scoreless IP, 3 K.

I wonder if Frazier and Gardner keep hitting under .200 and Andujar proves he can play LF, if a change will be made. As for Voit, the Yanks really miss the HR leader of last season. Bruce (now retired) and Ford haven’t filled Voit’s void.
