Minor League Report. Hot Torres HR’s again, Austin’s rehab rained out, Adams good in loss.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (22-17) lost 2-1. Chance Adams pitched well, but took the loss, which drops his career minor league record to 21-3. Dustin Fowler (CF, .303) had two of SWB’s five hits.

Adams (1-1, 1.53) 7 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR. (5-1, 1.15 overall AA/AAA)
Gurka 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 w, 1 K. 6.59
Jones 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 1 w, 2 K. 3.10

AA: SS Gleyber Torres hit his fourth HR in his last five games, a grand slam, in Trenton’s (25-14) 6-0 win. He is at .283-5-18. 3B Miguel Andujar added a solo HR. C Jorge Saez was 3 for 3 with an RBI, and 2B Abiatal Avelino had 2 hits.

Acevedo (w, 1-0, 0.00) 6 1/3 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K. 1st AA start after promotion from Tampa.
Cortes 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K. 3.18
Marsh 1 1/3, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K. 4.66

There have been a few promotions/demotions lately. Adams and Acevedo are just two.

High A: Tyler Austin was to begin his rehab, but the game was rained out. With Chris Carter struggling, it’ll be interesting to see what happens when Bird and/or Austin are ready. The Yanks have been winning without production from the 1B position, where they are last in the majors. Bird and Carter have been a combined 23 for 140 (.164) with 3 HR, 14 RBI, and 57 strikeouts. Bird, of course, is hurt, and that injury probably really affected him. As for who else they have, Ji-Man Choi was hitting over .350 at SWB but he is on the DL (hamstring). Mike Ford, 24, a lefty bat, started the year at AA and went up to AAA with the injury to Choi. Ford is hitting a combined (AA/AAA) .304-5-25.

With the Yanks playing Torres at 2B, 3B and SS, maybe 1B could be next, considering the Yanks’ problems there? (JUST KIDDING!)

Low A: Charleston (20-21) won 5-3. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 RBI.

Nelson 4 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 W, 6 K. 6.75
Sosebee (w, 2-1, 3.55) 4 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 w, 5 K. 3.55
