Minor League Report. When will they call Chance Adams up? (Great again). Littell & Perez dominate again, too.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

This will be my last report for a while. I will be on vacation, visiting family on the other side of the country for a little over a week. Please bear with me until my return.

I haven’t seen a niece or nephew in 8 years. Or a sister in two years.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

AAA: SWB (44-28) won 11–1.  Chance Adams was once again, awesome. When does he join the rotation? Not only that, when does Austin replace Carter at 1B?

Check the numbers.

Minor League Report. Herrera continues to dominate AA.

AAA: SWB  (31-22) lost 2-0, and got just two hits. 3B Gleyber Torres is coming, but that may be a bit delayed, since Torres is hitting just .194 since his promotion to AAA eleven games ago. Remember, he is only 20. He was 0 for 3 with a walk and struck out twice. DH Tyler Austin, on rehab (which should be finishing soon) was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. SWB struck out 11x.

Jones 1 Ip, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.30

Despite their good record, SWB is 5 GB of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Phillies affiliate) in their division, but sitting in a wild card position. Of course, it’s still early.

AA: Trenton (35-19, 1st place by 2.5 in their division) won 6-5, surviving a scare when they gave up 5 in the bottom of the 9th.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits, 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 1B Billy Fleming 3 hits, CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI, and 2 RBI for 2B Abiatal Avelino.
