Minor League Report. The Martian takes one to outer space.

Since the Yanks needed to bring up a lot of guys from SWB because of COVID, it had a residual effect. Guys had to be brought up to SWB, etc.

AAA: SWB (41-21) won 7-2. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, 2 RBI, both solo HR. C Donny Sands (just brought up) 3 hits, solo HR. DH Matt Pita 2 hits, 3 RBI, a 3-run HR.

Low A: 18 year old Jasson Dominguez is the Yankees’ top prospect. Nicknamed “The Martian”, the Yanks signed him two years ago for $5.1MM. His skills, power and speed, have drawn comparisons to Mickey Mantle, Mike Trout and Bo Jackson. He played in the Futures Game before ever even joining Low A. Last night he hit his first professional HR as Tampa (44-19) won 13-4.

Dominguez 2 hits, 2 RBI, a 2-run HR. .438 at Low A so far (7 for 16). He was 4 for 20 in the FL Complex League before going to Tampa, so 11 for 36 so far. It will be interesting to see how fast he rises. Remember, just 18.


Also in this game: 2B Trevor Hauver 2 hits, 2 RBI. CF Everson Pereira 2 hits. RF Aldenis Sanchez 4 hits, 3 RBI. 1B Pedro Diaz 2 RBI. LF Evan Alexander 3 hits, 3 RBI. Nelvin Correa 4 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 5 K.

Covid concerns postpone Yankees’ Game/Minor League Report

The Yankees/Red Sox game on Thursday night was postponed due to Covid concerns, and the whole four-game weekend series could be in jeopardy. Things could get even worse for MLB. This could affect each team.

Besides Jonathan Loaisiga, who tested positive before the All-Star Game, Nestor Cortes, Jr. and Wandy Peralta have also tested positive. The Yanks made roster substitutions, reinstating Zack Britton off of the IL, bringing up Trey Amburgey, and putting Hoy Jun Park on the taxi squad.

Then it was reported that Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela and Kyle Higashioka are in protocol. First reports are that they are positive too, but further testing is needed to confirm.

Since Judge was just a starter and played at the All-Star Game, if he was/is positive, then every team has a problem, especially with its All-Stars, and MLB is then in a tizzy.

Hoo Boy.

AL wins All-Star Game. Minor League Report. Minor League Promotions.

The AL won the All-Star Game, 5-2 last night. Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., who hit a 468 ft. HR, was named MVP of the game, the youngest All-Star Game MVP ever. It was the 8th win in a row for the AL. The Angels’ Shohei Ohtani, who pitched and hit, got the win. Guerrero and his father are the third father/son combo to each HR in an all-star game.

Aaron Judge went 0 for 2 with a walk and scored a run. The other All-Star Yankees, Gerrit Cole and Aroldis Chapman, did not play.

In the minor leagues, the Yankees promoted a lot of players. I’ll name a few but probably won’t name them all.

He was 4 for 20 in the FCL, all singles, so this was his first extra-base hit. He’s only 18. Sanchez had 2 hits, RBI. 3B Andres Chaparro solo HR.

Futures/MLB draft/Minor League Report.

First the Futures game. Two Yankees prospects were in the game. CF Jasson Dominguez went 0 for 3. Lineout, two strikeouts. Dominguez is just 18, and just started his career about two weeks ago (he is in the Florida Complex League). He is the first player to be in the Futures game without even having played in a full-season league.

Pitcher Luis Medina can hit the high 90’s/ low 100’s with his fastball. He needs control and command. He pitched a scoreless inning, striking out two, but also gave up two hits and a walk.

The MLB draft is on. The Yankees’ first round pick was Trey Sweeney, a lefty-hitting SS.

AAA: SWB (37-20) lost 9-8 in 10 innings. RF Ryan LaMarre 2 hits. DH Socrates Brito 3 hits. LF Greg Allen 2 hits. 3B Armando Alvarez 2 RBI. SS Kyle Holder 2 hits, RBI. 1B Brandon Wagner 2 hits, 5 RBI, a 2-run HR.
