Minor League Report. Severino, Encarnacion rehab. SWB’s magic # is 1.


AAA: SWB (75-64) won 15-12 to reduce their magic number to 1. A SWB win today in the regular season finale or a loss by Syracuse would give the International League North Division title to SWB.

Luis Severino started the game in his first rehab start after missing all season long. In one inning, he gave up two runs on three hits, one a HR, and struck out two.

DH Edwin Encarnacion, in his first rehab game after suffering a broken wrist, was 1 for 4 with an RBI.

RF Trey Amburgey 3 hits, 2 RBI. SS Breyvic Valera 2 hits, RBI. C Erik Kratz 3 hits, 2 RBI.
3B Mandy Alvarez 4 RBI, a 3-run HR. 1B Gosuke Katoh, a 2-run HR. CF Billy Burns 3 hits, RBI.

AA: Trenton (75-62) lost 3-2. 1B Chris Gittens 2 hits.

High A: Tampa cancelled, rain.

Low A: Charleston (73-66) won 8-0. DH Josh Breaux 2-run HR. 3B Welfrin Mateo 3-run HR. C Eduardo Navas 2 RBI. 2B Eduardo Torrealba 2 hits.

Rony Contreras (W, 12-5, 3.33) 6 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 8 K.
Ramos 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.  0.90
Espinal 1 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 3 K.  2.41
The Yanks traded 1B/DH/OF Ryan McBroom off of SWB to the KC Royals in exchange for international signing bonus pool money and a player to be named later or cash considerations. McBroom, 27, hit .315 with 26 HR for SWB but the 1B/OF/ DH is blocked by the likes of Luke Voit, Edwin Encarnacion, Greg Bird (yeah, I know…), even D.J. LeMahieu when D.J. plays 1B. Guys like McBroom have to be given 40 man roster spots or you may lose them for nothing in the Rule 5 draft. So the Yanks got something for him.

The Yanks apparently have other guys they want to protect more so than McBroom.

Minor League Report. Encouraging outing by Loaisiga.


AAA: SWB (64-53) lost 10-2 but the biggest story of the game is that Jonathan Loaisiga pitched well.

Loaisiga no-decision 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.

Could he be used as an “opener” in the postseason? Or in another capacity?

As you may guess by the final score, after he left, things didn’t go well. Brody Koerner gave up 10 runs on 16 hits in 5 2/3 IP, inc. 3 HR. Ugh.

SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits. DH Ryan McBroom 2 RBI. CF Billy Burns 3 hits.

AA: Trenton (62-54) won 5-3. 1B Chris Gittens 3 hits, RBI. RF Isiah Gilliam 2-run HR. 3B Max Burt 2 hits.

High A: Tampa (52-62) lost 6-4. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. 2B Diego Castillo 2 hits. LF Leonardo Molina 2 hits, 2 RBI.

Starter Luis Gil 4 scoreless innings, no decision. 1-0, 4.85 at Tampa, but 5-5, 2.72 between Low A Charleston and High A Tampa this season in 20 starts. Gil, 21, RHP, has 123 K in 96 IP. Maybe three years away? But someone to keep an eye on.

Low A: Charleston (60-57) won 9-8. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. LF Canaan Smith 3 hits, 3 RBI, 2-run HR, .319. I am surprised he hasn’t been promoted to Tampa right now. (20, .319-9-61, lefty bat). 2B Eduardo Torrealba 2 RBI.

Minor League Report.


AAA: SWB (53-38) won 4-3. SS Tyler Wade 2 hits, 2 RBI (.312). He’s really heating up now. Unfortunately, just .173 in his time in the majors so far. You wonder if he (or Thairo Estrada) could be trade bait if the Yanks make a major deal for a pitcher before the trade deadline. Estrada has done better in his brief minor league stint this year than Wade has in his. Also, infielder Breyvic Valera will be going back down to SWB now that Luke Voit comes off the IL today. The Yanks may have to make a decision between these players if they make a deal—who to keep and who to include in the trade.

C Kyle Higashioka solo HR. 1B Ryan McBroom 2 hits. CF Billy Burns 3 hits.

Randall Delgado (W, 2-4, 6.07) 6 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR>
Jonathan Holder (H, 2) 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K.  3.86
Joe Harvey (S, 8) 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. Gave up 1 HR.  2.66

Good to see the previously struggling Holder have a decent outing. BTW, the win came over Syracuse, the Mets’ AAA team. Tim Tebow batted 9th, was 0 for 3 and is hitting just .158 for Syracuse.

AA: Trenton (47-40) shut out Reading 3-0. C Jorge Saez 2 hits.

Rony Garcia (W, 2-7, 4.65) 8 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 0 W, 8 K
Danny Alvarez (S, 11) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 0 K.  2.84

High A: Tampa (39-51) lost 5-2.  SS Diego Castillo 2 hits. 2B Wilkerman Garcia two RBI.

Low A: Charleston (47-45) won 4-3 in 10 innings. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. DH Welfrin Mateo solo HR, 2 RBI. Dalton Lehnen (2-0, 0.82) 3 scoreless relief innings for the win.


Minor League Report.


AAA: SWB (50-37) split a DH.

Reg. Sched. Game: Lost 4-2. 2B Tyler Wade 3 for 3. Needs to take that to the next level. Had half of SWB’s six hits in the game.

Chance Adams (L, 4-2, 4.01) 6 IP, 4 R, 9 H, 2 W, 3 K.

Makeup of 5/30 rainout: Won 7-6 in a wild finish. The game was tied 1-1 going into the seventh. Both teams scored twice in the seventh. Rochester scored 3 in the top of the eighth (Minor League DHs are seven-inning games) but SWB came back with 4 in the bottom of the eighth to win.

1B Ryan McBroom 2 hits, RBI. CF Billy Burns 2 hits. C Ryan Lavarnway 2 RBI, inc. GW SF.

AA: Trenton (45-38) lost 7-5. SS Hoy Jun Park 3 hits, 2 RBI. 3B Mandy Alvarez 2 hits. LF Matt Lipka 2 hits, RBI.
