The Minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Today in the minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB lost 4-1. Refsnyder is playing 3B, not 2B so far at SWB. Swarzak started (!) gve up 3R in 3 IP.  2 hits, RBI for Gary Sanchez.

AA: Trenton won 6-2, striking out 11. OF Jake Cave 3 RBI. The Yanks lost Cave to the Reds in the Rule 5 draft, but got him back when he didn’t make the Reds’ team. 2 RBI for DH Jose Rosario. 2 hits each for  SS Tyler Wade and RF Lane Adams, who had an RBI.

High A: Tampa gave up a run in the bottom of the 10th and lost 2-1. Gabe Encinas started for Tampa and pitched 5 no-hit innings, but walked 5.

A: Charleston won 6-5 with 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th. 2B Thairo Estrada, 2 hits, 3 RBI. SS Kyle Holder 2 hits.

The Yanks may have decision at SS in a few years between Didi, Mateo, Wade, and Holder.

S.T. Game 31. Miller cleared, CC #5 starter, and Yanks win 3-2.


I don’t know how he is going to do it, but Andrew Miller has been cleared to pitch despite a chip fracture in his right (non-pitching) wrist. You wonder how it may affect his fielding. To me, not so much balls hit up the middle or bunts, but how about the 3-6-1 DP??

As expected, CC Sabathia was named the #5 starter over Ivan Nova. I think the salary issue had a lot to do with it. How many teams have a middle reliever/spot starter earning $25MM? (But then, look at Boston. They gave a big contract to 3B Pedro Sandoval, and in year 2 of that huge deal, Kung Fu Panda is on the bench).

The Yankees only got three hits in their exhibition game in Miami against Don Mattingly’s Marlins tonight, but two of them were HRs, and it was enough for a 3-2 win.

Brett Gardner homered in the fourth to put the Yanks up 1-0. The Marlins got one in the sixth and another in the eighth, but Lane Adams 2-run HR in the top of the ninth made the Yanks winners.

Eovaldi 5 1/3 IP, 1 R, 7 H, 4 walks and 3 K. Battled. Got 16 outs, but 11 baserunners.
Betances 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 0 K.
Shreve 1 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 1 walk and 0 K.
Cessa(w) 1 Ip, 1 R, 2 H, 1 walk and 1 K.
Goody. (S) 1 IP,  0 r, 0 H, 0 walks and 0 K.

So now that Miller is cleared, let’s look at the 25 man roster for Opening Day.

C McCann and Romine
Infield Teixeira, Castro, Gregorius, Headley, Ackley, Torreyes
DH A-Rod
OF Gardner, Ellsbury, Beltran, Hicks


Rotation: Tanaka, Pineda, Eovaldi, Severino, CC

Bullpen: Nova, Cessa, Barbato, Shreve, Betances, Miller.


One more BP spot needs to be filled. Who gets the final spot? Yates? Chapman gets that spot once the suspension is over.



Minor moves.

I don’t report on all the minor transactions the Yanks are doing, because often I don’t have time, and lately that minor move may only last a few days. Here is an example. From the internet yesterday (CBS SPORTS):

Yankees: Claimed OF Lane Adams off waivers from the Royals, the team announced. IF Ronald Torreyes was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Now Terreyes was just picked up in a deal with the Dodgers just three days ago when the Yanks sent Rob Segedin to LA for Terreyes and another minor leaguer.

I didn’t even get to write about Terreyes when this happened. So I am not going to go too much into detail about Adams. He is a righty hitting OF, 26, who over the last three years in the minors has basically averaged .275-13-55 with 38 SB a year.
