AL wins All-Star Game. Minor League Report. Minor League Promotions.

The AL won the All-Star Game, 5-2 last night. Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., who hit a 468 ft. HR, was named MVP of the game, the youngest All-Star Game MVP ever. It was the 8th win in a row for the AL. The Angels’ Shohei Ohtani, who pitched and hit, got the win. Guerrero and his father are the third father/son combo to each HR in an all-star game.

Aaron Judge went 0 for 2 with a walk and scored a run. The other All-Star Yankees, Gerrit Cole and Aroldis Chapman, did not play.

In the minor leagues, the Yankees promoted a lot of players. I’ll name a few but probably won’t name them all.

Minor League Report. What’s wrong with Deivi Garcia?

In spring training, Deivi Garcia, still just 22, was competing for a rotation spot for the Yankees. Now, it appears as if he needs a demotion from AAA back to AA.

Last year, Garcia started six games for the Yanks, going 3-2, 4.98. Not great, but decent for a 21 year old. Of course, he started as an “opener” in that playoff game. Bad decision that didn’t work out, especially when Garcia gave up a HR in the first inning then J.A. Happ was ineffective afterwards.

Garcia has started two games for the Yankees this year, going 0-2, 6.48. But it is his performance back at AAA SWB that is most alarming. In nine starts there, he is 1-3 with an 8.80 ERA. Read that again. What’s happened?

In just two innings last night, Garcia gave up 5 runs, 5 hits, 2 walks and only struck out one. He gave up a HR.

AAA SWB (30-13) lost to Lehigh Valley, 6-3. CF Estevan Florial 2-run HR.

AA: Somerset (30-15) won 7-4. Starter Janson Junk, 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 W, 3 K. Impressed Luke Voit while Voit was on his rehab stint. (3-1, 1.07). Maybe Junk comes up to AAA and Garcia goes down to AA. We’ll see. SS Diego Castillo 3 hits, RBI on a solo HR. DH Oswald Peraza 2 hits. 2B/3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 RBI. C Donny Sands 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR.

High A: Hudson Valley (29-16) won 11-9. LF Isaiah Pasteur 2-run HR. 2B Ezequiel Duran 3 hits, RBI. C Anthony Seigler 2 hits, 4 RBI. 1B Kyle MacDonald 2 hits, RBI.

Low A: Tampa ppd.
