Minor League Report. Andujar homers on Rehab stint. Also, a special moment remembered.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

 

Before I get into the minor league report, I would like to comment on the picture you see above. Gene Stephens, a backup/platoon OF who played in the majors for Boston (1952-1953, 1955-1960), Baltimore (1960-1961) the KC A’s (1961-1962) and Chicago White Sox (1963-1964) was a .240 hitter, 37 MLB HR, OPS+ 83. His 162 game average was .240-6-35. 12 years in the majors, nothing really significant about his career, except…

THIS photo.

This photo was taken on August 12, 1964. Mel Stottlemyre made his MLB debut against the White Sox, winning the game, and Stephens is the centerfielder for the White Sox that day looking up at a HR hit by Mickey Mantle that went over the 461 ft. sign and ALSO the fence and screen which combined were about 23 ft. high. It was said to be a 502 ft. shot.

Stephens just passed away a few days ago on April 27, age 86. I thought you’d like to know the story and see the photo.

AAA: SWB (8-8) lost 8-1, getting only three hits. Remember, with all the injuries and callups that the Yanks have, that there is a trickle-down effect. A lot of guys who would be playing here, the Ford’s, Estrada’s, Tauchman’s…. are with the big club because of the injuries the big club has.

Reliever Shawn Semple 4 IP, 5 K.

Semple, a 23 yr. old RHP, is 1-0, 0.69 as Charleston’s closer so far this year. In three games, 13 innings, he’s given up one run on three hits and has struck out 26. Seems like the kid could be getting a promotion to Tampa soon.

Nice team effort.

Yanks lose players due to Rule 5 draft.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

From MLB.com:

The Yankees made one selection in the Rule 5 Draft, taking right-hander Adonis De la Cruz from the Mariners’ Double-A roster in the first round of the Triple-A phase. De la Cruz, 23, was 3-4 with a 4.71 ERA  and 75 strikeouts over 57 1/3 innings (34 appearances) for Class-A Clinton this past year.

Right-hander Nick Green was selected by the D-backs from the Yankees in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft. In the Minor League phases, catcher Chris Rabago (Royals), right-hander Gilmael Troya (Phillies), right-hander Anyelo Gomez (Red Sox), outfielder Mark Payton (Athletics) and right-hander Alexander Vargas (Cubs) were selected from the Yanks.

Green would have to stay on Arizona’s 25 man roster all year or he gets offered back to the Yankees. Green, 23, was 8-7, 3.32 between High A Tampa and AA Trenton last year.

The rest are gone.

Rabago, 25, only spent 7 games with Trenton after the Yanks got him from the Rockies.

Troya, 21 was in the Appalaichan Rookie League.

Gomez, 25, had only 7 games in AAA in 2018 due to injury. He was 5-3, 1.92 with 9 saves at 4 levels in 2017. This one could hurt.

Payton just turned 27. .259-6-25 in 62 games at AAA last year. Maybe one day he’ll make the majors, but he’ll be old for a rookie.

Vargas, 21, was 5-1, 4.01 for 3 levels (Low A, High A and AA) in 2018.
