Just a combined report today, since there were no major league games yesterday due to the All-Star break, and very few minor league games either, as MLB wants to showcase the All-Star Game.

First of all, I did NOT watch the Home Run Derby (won by Giancarlo Stanton with an amazing total of 61 HR). I can’t stand Chris Berman going back-back-back all the time (please give it up or retire, Chris), and with Stanton bopping 61—all the worse. Besides, it kind of bores me. By going for the HR, some players have messed up their swings for the second half of the season.

By the way, I do NOT like the fact that the winning league of the All-Star Game gets home field advantage for the World Series. I find it a ridiculous ruling.

A-Rod is said to be working out at 1B during the break. The experiment failed last year, but it may be A-Rod’s only way (until Beltran’s hammy heals, enabling Beltran to go to RF and not DH) to get into the lineup. Teix’s knee won’t let him play every day, and as of now, Refsnyder is the backup 1B.

AAA: No games yesterday or today. All-Star Game Wednesday night.

AA: See AAA. The same applies.

High A: Tampa lost 5-3. Yelfrey Ramirez 6 IP, 2 R, 1 Earned, 4 H, 1 walk, 9 K. OF Mason Williams,   DH Trey Amburgey, OF Zack Zehner and C Francisco Diaz two hits each. No games today.

Low A: No games. Charleston does play tonight.

Yankees’ top prospect Jorge Mateo has been suspended for two weeks for popping off to the front office about a promotion from High A Tampa to AA Trenton. Apparently he said to release someone else so that he could be promoted. The suspension means that Mateo will not be playing in the Futures game.

AAA: SWB won 10-0. Remember a few days ago that I told you to watch out for Dietrich Enns? 7 IP, 0 R, 2 Hits. 3-1, 0.70 at SWB. Between AA and AAA, 10-3, 1.60 this year. Green is up, and for the time being anyway, has replaced Eovaldi in the rotation. Could Enns replace Pineda or Nova? 3B Donovan Solano 4 hits, 4 RBI….. but Headley has two more years on his deal unless the Yanks move him. Solano is hitting .305 with 39 RBI. OF Ben Gamel 3 hits, rbi (.300). Home runs for 1B Tyler Austin and OFs Cesar Puello and Jake Cave. Each had two hits, Cave with 2 RBI. All three are at .290 or better. 2B Jonathan Diaz 2 hits.

AA: Trenton lost 7-1. Lane Adams two hits.

High A: Tampa lost 7-0. Will Carter 2 R in 7 IP, then the bullpen fell apart. 2B Thairo Estrada 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston lost 4-1. Nestor Cortes 7 IP, 1 R, then the bullpen gave up more. OF Jhalen Jackson solo HR, 2 hits.  2 hits each for SS Kyle Holder, OF Cesar Diaz.
