Minor League Report/Problem with Sanchez?/Ex-Yankee Sanderson dies.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

The Yankees were off Thursday.

I will not have a report on any of Friday’s action. I’ll be out of town.

AAA: SWB (4-4) won 9-8 in 10 innings. PH Mandy Alvarez GW hit.  LF Trey Amburgey 2 hits. 1B Mike Ford 2 hits, 2 RBI. C Kyle Higashioka 2 RBI, but had to leave the game (see below) .RF/1B Ryan McBroom 2 hits. 3B Gosuke Katoh 2 hits, HR, 3 RBI.

It appears as if Chance Adams, so good a few years ago, has taken a step backwards in his development.

The reason Higashioka was called up was—wait for it—there may be ANOTHER Yankee going on the DL, and that may be Gary Sanchez.

AA Trenton was off.

High A: Tampa (2-6) lost 8-6. SS Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits, RBI. LF Tyler Hill 2 RBI. 3B David Metzgar HR, 2 RBI. Deivi Garcia 4 IP, 2 unearned runs, 6 K.

Low A: Charleston (4-4) lost 4-0. DH Josh Breaux 2 of the Riverdogs’ 5 hits.

Scott Sanderson, who spent two years with the Yankees in 1991 and 1992, has died at the age of 62. He was an All-Star in 1991. He spent 19 season in the majors, going 163-143, 3.84. His 162 g. average was 13-11, 3.84.

Sanderson was with the Expos (1978-1983), Cubs (1984-1989), A’s (1990), Yankees (1991-1992), Angels (1993), Giants (1993), White Sox (1994) and back with the Angels (1995-1996).

He was with the 1981 Expos that played in the NLCS, the 1984 and 1989 Cubs that played in the NLCS, and the 1990 AL pennant winning A’s. He got into five postseason games, going 0-0, 5.73.

Some of Sanderson’s best seasons:
1980 Expos 16-11, 3.11
1984 Cubs 8-5, 3.14
1989 Cubs 11-9, 3.94
1990 A’s 17-11, 3.88

For the Yankees, he went 16-10, 3.91 in 1991 and 12-11, 4.93 in 1992.

He was the player who wore #21 before Paul O’Neill.
