Minor League Report. Deivi Garcia still adjusting to AAA.


AAA: For a 20 yr. old, jumping from High A to AAA in one year is impressive. It may be a bit much to go from High A all the way to the majors. Deivi Garcia had a rough first inning for SWB, giving up 4 runs, as SWB (62-47) lost 6-1. LF Clint Frazier 2 hits, 2B Wendell Rijo 2 hits. In the first inning, Garcia gave up a double, walk, got a strikeout, then a double drove in two, then a strikeout, then a 2-run HR.

He may need a full year at AAA. At 20, we can’t rush him.

Update: From MLB Trade Rumors:

The Yankees were willing to give up Clint Frazier and another prospect for Ray, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweets, though talks fizzled out after the Diamondbacks requested more prospects.  As per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the D’Backs wanted a four-prospect package that included Frazier and right-hander Clarke Schmidt, who was the 16th overall pick of the 2017 draft and rated by MLB Pipeline as the fifth-best prospect in New York’s system.

As mentioned before, I don’t get into the lower level leagues. Too far away from the majors and not enough time for me to do so.

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.

Ok, ready for the numbers for the 20 year old Garcia, who the Yanks are VERY HIGH on?
