Covid concerns postpone Yankees’ Game/Minor League Report

The Yankees/Red Sox game on Thursday night was postponed due to Covid concerns, and the whole four-game weekend series could be in jeopardy. Things could get even worse for MLB. This could affect each team.

Besides Jonathan Loaisiga, who tested positive before the All-Star Game, Nestor Cortes, Jr. and Wandy Peralta have also tested positive. The Yanks made roster substitutions, reinstating Zack Britton off of the IL, bringing up Trey Amburgey, and putting Hoy Jun Park on the taxi squad.

Then it was reported that Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela and Kyle Higashioka are in protocol. First reports are that they are positive too, but further testing is needed to confirm.

Since Judge was just a starter and played at the All-Star Game, if he was/is positive, then every team has a problem, especially with its All-Stars, and MLB is then in a tizzy.

Hoo Boy.

The minors tonight.

AAA: Good news from Manny Banuelos. He came off the DL tonight and although he only went 3 2/3 (pitch count, just off DL), he did well. 0 R, 2 h, 0 walks and 5 K. I can understand not testing him just off the DL. Hopefully in the next outing he does as well and is stretched out a bit further. Jason Bulger (W) 1 R, 3 1/3 in the 2-1 win. Cody Eppley 2 scoreless for the save. Steve Pearce (.386) 2 hits, solo HR. If Chavez has to be DL’d (whiplash/concussion) after tonight, could Pearce be a callup? He’s mostly played 1B/RF in his time in the majors (465 AB, .232-9-52). Just 10 games at 3B.

Low A: 5-3 win for Charleston. Scottie Allen 2 R in 5 IP. Kelvin DeLeon 3 RBI.

The minors tonight.

AAA: Empire St. lost again to the IronPigs, this time by a 6-5 score. Dellin Betances started and wasn’t bad, 5 IP, 2 R 4 H 1 w, 6 K, but Pat (ambidextrous) Venditte replaced him with a 4-2 lead and was awful. 4 R in two innings. Steve Pearce 3 for 4 for Emp. St. Jack Cust two hits and an RBI. Brandon Laird 2 errors.

AA: 3-1 loss for Trenton. Graham Stoneburner 4 scoreless innings. Loser Ryan Pope 1 IP, 2 R. Abe Almonte a solo HR for Trenton’s only run.

High A: Tampa lost 4-2. J.R. Murphy 2 for 4.

Low A: A 1-0 win. Oh yeah, besides Michael Pineda, the Yanks did get someone else when they gave up Montero and Noesi. That someone else was Jose Campos. 6 IP. 0 R, 1 H. 1 walk and 3 K. Mason Willams 2 for 4, both doubles. Gary Sanchez 2 for 3, both singles. Kelvin DeLeon with a HR for the only run of the game.

Minors today.

AAA: SWB loses 5-3. Dave Phelps 1 R, 6 IP, 9 K. Bullpen blows it.

Game 2: SWB lost the nightcap 2-0. D.J. Mitchell the hard-luck loser. CG, 7 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 walks and 6 K.

AA: Trenton lost 8-2. Romine 2 run HR (.294). Garrison 5 R in 3 2/3. (0-2, 6.19). Venditte 1 R in 2 IP (9.00).

High A:Tampa lost 8-1. Cervelli 1 for 3. 3 for 10 on his rehab.


Low A:
Charleston blew a 7-2 lead after 7 and lost 9-8. Slade Heathcott 3 hits. (.339). Gary Sanchez 1-4, 2 RBI (.231). Ramon Flores, HR, 3 RBI. JR Murphy 3-5 (.339). Kelvin DeLeon 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI. Jose Toussen 3 hits, .385.

Majors off, but minors in action.

The Yanks were off today, but interesting stuff nonetheless.

Feliciano will not undergo surgery right away. Instead, six weeks of conservative treatment. I hope it’s not just delaying the inevitable.

AAA:
SWB won game 1, 6-4. In this game, Montero (did not play Game 2) was 3 for 4 (.452!). Jorge Vazquez, who had a great S.T. (but is blunted by Teix and A-Rod) hit his 7th HR. Justin Maxwell added a HR. Brackman 4 R in 5 IP but he got the W.

Game 2. Montero out. LV beat SWB 5-3. Solo HR for Brandon Laird. Prior (just up from Tampa) pitched a scoreless inning but Buddy Carlyle gave up a 3-run dinger in the sixth.

High A:
12-2 Tampa. Taylor Grote 3 hits, HR, 3 RBI. Three others with three hits.

Low A: 8-2 win for Charleston. 2 hits, RBI for JR Murphy. 2-run HR for Kelvin DeLeon.
