Since I have had some requests and inquiries about a hitter who had a high batting average this year at Trenton:

Devyn Bolasky, 25, Bats and throws lefty. Just promoted to SWB from Trenton. Yes, he was hitting .365 at AA, but in just 38 games, and he has no power. .365-0-11. He isn’t speedy, either, since he has 0 SB. In 272 minor league games, he has a .272 batting average, but has hit just 3 HR and has stolen just 25 bases. Last year, with 4 different minor league teams, from Low A to AAA, he hit just .235-2-26 with just 2 SB. So I am not sold on him yet. Because he was hitting in the .380s a few weeks ago, some people were asking me about him.

In the majors: The Yanks won’t have to worry about Mike Moustakas this weekend anymore. KC traded him to Milwaukee. Meanwhile the Mets traded Asdrubal Cabrera to the Phillies.  Astros get Ryan Pressley from the Twins to help their bullpen.

 

Minor League Report. Torres gets 2 hits in rehab, but makes 2 errors. Torreyes back.

Minor League Report. Frazier Injured?

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

I don’t know if the Yanks would have traded Clint Frazier anyway, word is he’s off the table, but it may turn out that they couldn’t anyway. Frazier dove for a ball in the first inning and was pulled from the game shortly thereafter.

AAA: SWB (51-44) won 7-3. Shane Robinson, Frazier’s replacement, 2 hits. 1B Mike Ford, 3 hits, triple shy of the cycle, HR a solo HR off of Andrew Miller. 3B Rey Navarro 2 hits, double, HR,  2 RBI. C Francisco Diaz 2 RBI. 2B Brandon Drury 2 hits, RBI.

Minor League Report. Cabrera, Vidal, star for Low A Charleston.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Justus Sheffield will be a Yankees representative in the Futures game next week.

As far as the festivities in our nation’s capital, where the All-Star Game will be (and I believe, first time since 1969?) I’d like to see something just for fun.

The HR derby, meh. But that Presidents race? That is funny.

Why not combine the two? Bring a temporary fence in, about 250 feet from the plate, and let those characters (Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, T.R., and Taft) swing, in costume, to see which President wins the HR derby! Wouldn’t that be funny and entertaining?

Now for the minor league report.
