Minor League Report.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

One thing I would like to remind you about.

This sport of baseball is a crazy sport. Even though the Yanks play with a 25-man roster for most of the year, rosters can expand on Sept. 1.  Other sports don’t do this. Now, how many players will the Yanks leave down in the minors to compete for minor league titles and how many players will they bring up to expand the MLB roster to compete for the playoffs, who knows. But this is one reason I do the minor league report. Once rosters expand, who will be added? That way, you have an idea. For example, remember the big HR Slade Heathcott (now with the Giants AA/AAA) hit a couple of years back that helped the Yanks get in the playoffs?

AAA: SWB (73-41) won 5-0. 2 hits, solo HR 2B Donovan Solano. SS Cito Culver 2 hits, rbi. RF Jake Cave 2 hits, RBI. Neither Aaron Hicks or Tyler Austin, both rehabbing, played.
