Minor League Report. Acevedo, Estrada continue to impress, Chapman rehab, FSL All Stars.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (38-26) won 8-1. 2B Tyler Wade (.317) 2 hits, RBI. CF Dustin Fowler (who I thought they’d call up instead of Mason Williams, but apparently Fowler isn’t on the 40-man roster) 2 hits, 2 RBI. DH Tyler Austin 2 hits, RBI. RF Clint Frazier 3-run HR. SS Gleyber Torres 3 hits.

Domingo Acevedo promoted. First AAA game. Rapidly rising. Was 0-4, 4.57 at Tampa this year, then 2-0, 1.62 at AA, now this. Overall 3-4, 3.09.

Acevedo (W, 1-0, 1.29) 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 5 W, 4 K.

Heller 1/3 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.57

AA: Trenton (43-22) won 4-2. Gleyber Torres gets all the attention, deservedly, but SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits, .323. Jorge Mateo at High A has been struggling and has already been passed on the SS depth chart by Torres, Wade and Estrada. Trade bait? Torres is 20, but Estrada is only 21.

Minor League Report. Bird starts rehab. Austin near ready?

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (30-21) lost 6-3. 1B Tyler Austin may be done with his rehab, ready for a callup, and that doesn’t bode well for a struggling Chris Carter. Austin was 3 for 4, HR, 2 RBI. 2B Ruben Tejada solo HR.

Not only that, but see below. Greg Bird started his rehab with Tampa.

If anything happens to Sanchez or Romine, the Yanks may be a little thin catcher-wise. Kyle Higashioka is on the DL and the Yanks’ catchers at SWB right now are Eddy Rodriguez and Wilkin Castillo.

Minor League Report. Frazier HRs for third straight game. News on Torres & Adams.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (26-18) won 4-2 as RF Clint Frazier homered for his third straight game. He was 2 for 3 with a double and the solo HR.

I don’t mean to pick on Chase Headley, but just stating something that is fact and could be a harbinger of what may be to come, and appears to be of no coincidence. Headley is hitting .158 since April 19th. Meanwhile, since being called up to AAA, all three of Gleyber Torres’ games have had him starting at 3B. You can read the tea leaves here.

Torres was 2 for 3 with an RBI last night. Just putting one and one together, here.

Mason Williams had 2 hits and an RBI.

Chance Adams improved his career minor league record to 22-3, 2.01.

The Yanks won’t rush them, but you have to start wondering how close Torres and Adams are to making their MLB debuts.

Adams (W, 2-1, 2.12 AAA, overall AA/AAA this year—6-1, 1.38) 5 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 W, 4 K.
Webb (H, 3) 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K. 3.00
Heller (H, 2) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K. 3.38
Frieri (S, 5 ) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.29

AA: Trenton (30-16) won 8-6. Good to see good records at both AAA and AA, and even High and Low A ball are over .500.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits.
CF Jake Cave 3 hits, 2 doubles, 3 RBI.
3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 2 RBI
LF Zack Zehner 3 hits, rbi.
RF Billy McKinney 2 hits.
2B Abiatal Avelino 2 hits, RBI.

Lefty Josh Rogers made his AA debut after going 4-3, 2.22 at High-A Tampa.

Rogers (w, 1-0, 6.35) 5 2/3 IP, 4 R, 5 H, 1 W, 3 K.
Wotherspoon (H, 4) 2 1/3 IP, 0 R 1 H, 0 W, 5 K. 1.14
Coshow 1 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K. 3.80

High A: Tampa (26-23) won 4-3. 2B Nick Solak 2 hits, RBI, same for CF Jeff Hendrix. 2 RBI for 3B Mandy Alvarez.

Koerner 4 1/3 IP, 1 R, unearned, 3 H, 2 W, 4 K. 0.00
Mesa (w, 1-0, 1.47) 2 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 w, 2 K. 1.47
Reeves (H, 1) 1 2/3 IP, 2 R, both unearned, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K. 16.88
Schwaab (S, 1) 1/3 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 3.12

Low A: Charleston (24-23) scored in the bottom of the 13th to win 2-1. C Eduardo Navas the GW single. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, solo HR. 2 hits each for 3B Angel Aguilar and SS Hoy Jun Park.

Nick Green 5 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 3 W, 5 K. 3.02
Mahoney (BS, 3) 3 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 W, 3 K. 1.85
Mundell 2 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K. 2.41
Rosa (W, 1-1, 4.68) 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.

I can’t keep up with all promotions/demotions, but if I see one (like Rogers, above) I will mention it.
