Tampa finished 5th, 13 1/2 out in the Florida State League North for the first half. They are 2-3 to start the second half of the season.

Charleston finished third by percentages (2nd place Augusta .5294 to Charleston .5286) to end the first half of the season. Charleston finished just 1/2 game out of first place (Lexington 37-32, .536). They are 1-2 to start the second half of the season.




Minor League Report. Judge Homers on Rehab for SWB. Deivi Garcia shines for Trenton.


AAA: SWB (40-28) won 8-4. Rehabbing RF Aaron Judge 1 for 2, solo HR, 2 walks, strikeout.  It’ll be a tough decision who goes when Judge returns soon.

As mentioned in the other post, with Voit, Encarnacion, Ford here, and Gittens (AA), Greg Bird is finding himself squeezed out. Heck, former major leaguer Logan Morrison, here at AAA SWB, HIMSELF is squeezed out.

Randall Delgado 3 R in 6 IP for the win.

AA: Trenton (38-27) won 6-0 on a 2-hit shutout. Wait until you see the numbers Deivi Garcia put up. 1B Chis Gittens (see mention above) 2 hits, 2 RBI. C Kellin Deglan 2 hits. CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI.

Minor League Report. Rehabs starting. Reports on Judge, Tulo, Didi, Stanton.


Aaron Judge threw yesterday but still is a long ways away. He has not begun swinging a bat yet. Oblique strain.

Troy Tulowitzki is taking grounders at third and expressed a willingness to play all over the infield. But once Didi (see next paragraph) returns, will there be any room for Tulo? Heck, there may not be room for LeMahieu what with Voit, Torres, Gio and Urshela in the infield, and Estrada may have to go down for Didi. Unless LeMahieu goes to third, but what then of Urshela?

Didi Gregorius got into an extended spring training game. He got two hits, made an error.

For Giancarlo Stanton, see below, high A Tampa.

AAA: SWB off.

Reg. sched. game: 6-2 win. SS Hoy Jun Park 3 for 3, RBI (.340). 3B Mandy Alvarez 2 RBI. CF Ben Ruta a 3-run HR. 1B Chris Gittens 2 hits (.325). Trenton had to use an “opener” in this game.

Yanks ppd. again; p/u a player; and the minor league report.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Rain, Rain,, go away. For the second straight night, the Yanks were ppd. This game will be made up as the first game of a separate admission/day-night DH on August 12.

Meanwhile, the Yanks made a move, picking up 1b/dh Kendrys Morales from the A’s in exchange for cash or a player to be named later. In order to open a spot on the 40-man roster, New York transferred righty Jonathan Loaisiga from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list. Meaning we would not see him again until probably late July.

I am not sold on this move. Morales, 35, hit just .204-1-7 in 34 games for the A’s this year. OPS+ 61. A switch-hitter, he has hit .267 with 212 HR, OPS+ 112 in his MLB career, but I have to wonder how much is left in the tank. Last year he hit .249-21-57 for Toronto in 130 games, OPS+ 113.

From MLBTR.com:

A followup MRI on the ailing right shoulder of Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar revealed little to no changes in his shoulder from the April MRI that initially revealed a small labrum tear, manager Aaron Boone told reporters Tuesday afternoon (Twitter links via James Wagner of the New York Times and Bryan Hoch of MLB.com). Andujar, according to Boone, has been encouraged to discuss the situation with his family and will spend the next day or so mulling his options. Season-ending surgery is still on the table, it seems.

The update from Boone comes just a day after Andujar was placed back on the 10-day injured list following a brief return to the active roster. Andujar missed the entire month of April and a few games early in May before returning on May 4 to go 3-for-34 (all singles) with one walk and nine strikeouts. While both Andujar and the team had hoped that the small nature of the tear would allow him to play through the injury, that poor showing has cast further doubt on his ability to do so.
