cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Before getting to the minor league report: Masahiro Tanaka’s start has been pushed back from Sunday against Baltimore to Monday night in Anaheim against the Angels. No word on who starts Sunday, probably Chad Green.

AAA: LF Clint Frazier hit 2 homers and 2B Gleyber Torres hit another in SWB’s (34-24) 10-1 win over Lehigh Valley. Frazier had 4 rbi, Torres 2. Rehabbing Greg Bird was 0 for 5. SWB scored 7 in the first inning.

Minor League Report. Big Day for Gleyber Torres.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: Tyler Austin was activated off the DL and assigned to AAA SWB. I’m a little surprised and disappointed. I would have liked him to be brought right up to the big club and for Chris Carter to be let go. I am not the only one.

SWB (32-22) won 6-3. A huge game for SS Gleyber Torres. 3 for 3 with a walk. HR, 4 RBI.

Mitchell 2 1/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 1 K. 4.76
German (W, 2-1, 3.76) 5 1/3, 1 R, 5 H, 2 W, 7 K.
Heller (s, 3) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.84

AA: Trenton off.

High A: Tampa (30-28) won 6-0. Rehabbing 1B Greg Bird 1 for 3, single, RBI.

RF Trey Amburgey 2-run HR.  LF Tito Polo 2 hits, RBI.

Clarkin 4 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 W, 2 K. 1.56
Hissong (W, 1-0, 4.82) 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 4 K.
Harvey 1 IP 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K, 0.00
Foley 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 0.00

Low A:   Charleston off.

Now, you can ask how someone could get a save in a 17-0 win (which Charleston had on Sunday) . Here’s how (although it seems ridiculous).

That rule states the official scorer shall credit a pitcher with a save when such pitcher meets all four of the following conditions:

  1. He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his team;
  2. He is not the winning pitcher;
  3. He is credited with at least ⅓ of an inning pitched; and
  4. He satisfies one of the following conditions:
    1. He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning
    2. He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, at bat or on deck
    3. He pitches for at least three innings.

Now in Charleston’s 17-0 win on Sunday, the relief pitcher, who pitched 4 innings, met criteria #1.

He met criteria #2.

He pitched 4 innings, so he met criteria #3.

and…

He met the 3rd subcriteria of criteria #4 by pitching 4 innings.

So as silly as it seems, this pitcher got a save in a 17-0 win.

 

 

Minor League Report. Bird starts rehab. Austin near ready?

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (30-21) lost 6-3. 1B Tyler Austin may be done with his rehab, ready for a callup, and that doesn’t bode well for a struggling Chris Carter. Austin was 3 for 4, HR, 2 RBI. 2B Ruben Tejada solo HR.

Not only that, but see below. Greg Bird started his rehab with Tampa.

If anything happens to Sanchez or Romine, the Yanks may be a little thin catcher-wise. Kyle Higashioka is on the DL and the Yanks’ catchers at SWB right now are Eddy Rodriguez and Wilkin Castillo.
