Minor League Report.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB won the completion of a suspended game from 6/24, 4-3. Tyler Austin, traded to the Twins today, had hit a 3-run HR in that game. To show you how much things could change, Brandon Drury (since traded to Toronto) started that game as the DH, and Billy McKinney (traded to Toronto with Drury) started that game in CF. Ronald Torreyes started that game at 3B, took leave because of a family situation and returned today, and played 3 different positions as a result. Kyle Higashioka had started that game at C.  Tyler Wade had started at SS. I won’t get into more details. of course, Higashioka and Wade are with the big club at present.

Crazy.

Regular Game: SWB (56-49) lost 1-0. They got just 3 hits, one by DH Ronald Torreyes.

Adams (L, 3-5, 4.50) 7 1/3 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 4 W, 8 K.

AA: Trenton off.

High A: Tampa off

Low A: Charleston (50-54) lost 7-3. 2 hits, solo HR Dermis Garcia (who the Yanks are trying to turn into an Ohtani 2-way player). RF Frederick Cuevas 3 hits, 2 doubles, RBI. DH Welfrin Mateo 2 hits, RBI.

Sanmartin (L, 1-4, 4.67) 6 1/3 IP, 6 R, 11 H, 0 W, 5 K. Gave up 2 HR

Yanks deal Austin and a minor leaguer to Twins for Lance Lynn

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Cashmoney is busy. Just after trading Adam Warren to Seattle for international bonus $$$, he has, per MLB Trade Rumors:

6:16pm: New York will acquire righty Lance Lynn in the deal, Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweets. Minor-league right-hander Luis Rijo also goes to Minnesota, Heyman tweets.

6:14pm: The Twins and Yankees have agreed to a trade that will send first baseman/outfielder Tyler Austin to Minnesota, per Jon Heyman of Fancred (Twitter link). Other elements of the agreement remain unreported at this time.

Austin has split the 2018 season between the majors and Triple-A. He produced at about a league-average clip in the majors.

Austin hit .223-8-23, OPS+ 98 for the Yanks this year, basically helping to fill in while Greg Bird was on the DL. In 85 MLB games, he has hit .230-15-43, OPS+ 96. His BB/K ratio isn’t too hot, though. 19 walks, 106 strikeouts. In 25 games for SWB, he was hitting .247-5-11. He’ll be 27 in early September.

Lynn, 31, was 7-8, 5.10 for the Twins this season, ERA+ 85. He got a WS ring with the 2011 Cardinals and was an All-Star in 2012 when he won 18 games. He missed all of the 2016 season with an injury, but from 2012-2017 he averaged 14-9, 3.39, ERA+ 114 with the Cardinals. He has 24 games of postseason experience, 7 starts, and is 5-4, 4.50.

Since I have had some requests and inquiries about a hitter who had a high batting average this year at Trenton:

Devyn Bolasky, 25, Bats and throws lefty. Just promoted to SWB from Trenton. Yes, he was hitting .365 at AA, but in just 38 games, and he has no power. .365-0-11. He isn’t speedy, either, since he has 0 SB. In 272 minor league games, he has a .272 batting average, but has hit just 3 HR and has stolen just 25 bases. Last year, with 4 different minor league teams, from Low A to AAA, he hit just .235-2-26 with just 2 SB. So I am not sold on him yet. Because he was hitting in the .380s a few weeks ago, some people were asking me about him.

In the majors: The Yanks won’t have to worry about Mike Moustakas this weekend anymore. KC traded him to Milwaukee. Meanwhile the Mets traded Asdrubal Cabrera to the Phillies.  Astros get Ryan Pressley from the Twins to help their bullpen.
