Minor League Report. Hot Torres HR’s again, Austin’s rehab rained out, Adams good in loss.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (22-17) lost 2-1. Chance Adams pitched well, but took the loss, which drops his career minor league record to 21-3. Dustin Fowler (CF, .303) had two of SWB’s five hits.

Adams (1-1, 1.53) 7 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR. (5-1, 1.15 overall AA/AAA)
Gurka 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 w, 1 K. 6.59
Jones 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 1 w, 2 K. 3.10

AA: SS Gleyber Torres hit his fourth HR in his last five games, a grand slam, in Trenton’s (25-14) 6-0 win. He is at .283-5-18. 3B Miguel Andujar added a solo HR. C Jorge Saez was 3 for 3 with an RBI, and 2B Abiatal Avelino had 2 hits.

Acevedo (w, 1-0, 0.00) 6 1/3 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K. 1st AA start after promotion from Tampa.
Cortes 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K. 3.18
Marsh 1 1/3, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K. 4.66

There have been a few promotions/demotions lately. Adams and Acevedo are just two.

High A: Tyler Austin was to begin his rehab, but the game was rained out. With Chris Carter struggling, it’ll be interesting to see what happens when Bird and/or Austin are ready. The Yanks have been winning without production from the 1B position, where they are last in the majors. Bird and Carter have been a combined 23 for 140 (.164) with 3 HR, 14 RBI, and 57 strikeouts. Bird, of course, is hurt, and that injury probably really affected him. As for who else they have, Ji-Man Choi was hitting over .350 at SWB but he is on the DL (hamstring). Mike Ford, 24, a lefty bat, started the year at AA and went up to AAA with the injury to Choi. Ford is hitting a combined (AA/AAA) .304-5-25.

With the Yanks playing Torres at 2B, 3B and SS, maybe 1B could be next, considering the Yanks’ problems there? (JUST KIDDING!)

Low A: Charleston (20-21) won 5-3. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 RBI.

Nelson 4 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 W, 6 K. 6.75
Sosebee (w, 2-1, 3.55) 4 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 w, 5 K. 3.55
Mundell (S, 3) 1 Ip, 0 R, 0 H, 0 w, 2 K. 2.87

Minor League Report. Torres returns.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

The major leaguers made one move yesterday, DFA’ing Pete Kozma when Didi Gregorius came back. You wonder if another may be made soon.

Greg Bird is down to .109. He is 6 for 55. It’s amazing that the Yanks are 14-7 despite him (and also despite Gardner under .200 with zero RBI). But you have to wonder how long the rope is before the Yanks will be forced to send him down to straighten himself out.

Meanwhile, Ji-Man Choi, a 1B and lefty hitter just like Bird, is hitting .360 at SWB after two hits and an RBI in SWB’s (11-9) 6-3 win last night. I hope Bird heats up soon, but if he continues like this, you wonder if a flip-flop could be forthcoming.

Choi does have MLB experience, 54 games with the Angels last year, .170-5-12. He is only 25 himself, 26 in a few weeks. While not a “savior,” he may be able to do better than Bird is doing right now (until Bird gets straightened out) and be in a platoon with Carter.

But Bird got to take flight soon (sorry, had to throw that in there).

3B Ruben Tejada had a 2-run HR and is at .383. DH Dustin Fowler 2 for 2, triple, RBI. RF Rob Refsnyder and SS Cito Culver each had 2 hits.

AA: Gleyber Torres returned from the DL and DH’d. He was 0 for 3 with a walk and is off to a slow start at .220. Trenton (12-8) lost 4-2. 1B Mike Ford 3 of Trenton’s 6 hits.

German (L, 0-3, 2.95) 4 2/3 IP, 2 R, 7 H, 1 W, 8 K.

Former MLB player Luis Olmo died at age 97. He played for the Brooklyn Dodgers 1943-1945, 1949-1950 and for the Boston Braves in 1951. Mostly a backup OF who also played 2B and 3B, Olmo did play regularly when the majors were depleted during the war years of 1944 and 1945, doing well in those years.
1944: .258-9-85, 10 SB, OPS+ 84
1945: .313-10-115, 15 SB, led NL with 13 triples, OPS+ 127 and 17th in MVP voting.

He went 3 for 11 with a HR and 2 RBI in the 1949 WS against the Yankees.

In 462 MLB games, he hit .281. His 162 g. average was .281-10-95, OPS+ 102.
