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.

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.

1B Mike Ford solo HR. Aroldis Chapman put in a rehab appearance, hmmm…. Chapman is expected to rejoin the Yanks on Sunday.

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.
