Minor League Report. SWB scores late to win, 5-3.

SWB (2-0), down 3-0, scored twice in the top of the eighth, and three times in the top of the ninth to win, 5-3.

In the eighth, Rob Brantly and Estevan Florial homered. For Florial (ranked Yankees’ #30 prospect), it was his second HR in as many games, and he had two of the Railriders’ five hits.

Brantly hit a SF to tie the game in the ninth, and Ryan LaMarre’s 2-run double was the game winning hit.

One key to 2022: Luis Severino

Since he has hardly pitched in the last three years, it may be easy to forget how good Luis Severino was in 2017 and 2018. Here is a reminder, and a comparison.

2017: 14-6, 2.98 ERA+ 152 230 K
2018: 19-8 3.39 ERA+ 124. 220 K

By comparison, here is how Gerrit Cole did last year: 16-8, 3.23 ERA+ 133. 243 K

Severino basically was Cole-like in 2017 and 2018. One key to the Yankees’ season is how will Severino be since he has only pitched in seven MLB games since 2018?

Reports are that he looks good and is ready to go. A Severino that is like the Severino of 2017-2018, matched up with Cole performing like he did last year, is a necessity for Yankees’ success in 2022.

Ryan LaMarre got a non-roster invitation to Yankees’ camp. He played in 9 games for the Yanks last year. He was 4 for 21, but 2 of his hits were HR. The journeyman has been with Cincinnati (2015), Boston (2016), Oakland 2017, Twins 2018, White Sox 2018, back with the Twins 2019, and the Yankees 2021, playing in 128 games total. 33, bats right, throws left.

Free agents and players lost on waivers.


Here is a list of free agents. We will see who, if anyone, the Yankees bring back.

Corey Kluber (doubtful. 36 in April, missed 1/2 of 2021)
Andrew Heaney (definitely not)
Anthony Rizzo (maybe)
Joely Rodriguez
Brett Gardner (at 38, could retire)
Darren O’Day (39, could retire)
Ryan LaMarre
Brody Koerner
Adam Warren

The best shot of anyone returning seems to be Rizzo, and that is a question mark.

These players were placed on waivers and claimed by another team.

Greg Allen by Pittsburgh.
Tim Locastro by Boston.
Andrew Velazquez by the Angels.

I don’t understand the love and weeping over Velazquez. He was a nice story. Hometown lad, nice glove. But in 68 plate appearances struck out 23x and drew only 1 walk. Hit .224. A .184 career hitter in the majors with an OPS+ of 43 (100 is average). Besides, Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza are their top two prospects, both a year or two away, and both are SS. Not only that, the Yanks will probably make a big splash on the free agent market (Corey Seager?) for a SS.

Lastly, Rob Brantly was outrighted off the roster right to the SWB roster.
UPDATE: He refused the assignment and became a free agent.

Minor League Action from 9-30-21

SWB won 6-4. DH Miguel Andujar on rehab–2 hits, 2 RBI, 2-run HR.

Minor league action, 9-24-21. Tampa gets swept in their Championship Series.

AAA: SWB completed a suspended game in this strange 10-game final stretch series that AAA is playing right now, winning 5-3. This was a game Jameson Taillon started a few days ago as a rehab stint (3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 2 K). Just promoted Hayden Wesneski (#15 prospect) 1 2/3 scoreless innings. Luis Gil pitched two scoreless innings for the save, getting all six outs via the strikeout. He did walk two and give up two hits.

Rehabbing LF Miguel Andujar was 0 for 2. SS Oswald Peraza (#3 prospect), who like Wesneski, was just promoted, hit a solo HR. 2B Oswaldo Cabrera (#16 prospect), the third of the promotions, 2 hits. RF Ryan LaMarre 2-run HR. OF Greg Allen 2 hits, RBI.

SWB lost the regularly scheduled game (7-inning affair) 7-3. Starter Clarke Schmidt (#5 prospect) gave up 4 runs in 4 2/3 IP, but 3 were unearned (Peraza error). He struck out 8. LF Andujar 2 hits, RBI. 2B Cabrera 2-run HR.

AA Somerset and High A Hudson Valley seasons are over.

Low A Tampa lost their championship series by getting swept in three straight. Game 3 was an 11-3 loss. SS Trey Sweeney (#7 prospect) 2 hits, RBI, HR. DH Tyler Hardman 2-run HR.

Minor league action. Tampa goes down 0-2 in their playoff series. Taillon rehabs.

AAA: The regular season is over, but AAA has some kind of 10-game Final stretch thing going on. It started last night for SWB. Strange.

Anyway, SWB’s game was suspended with SWB up 4-2. Promoted to SWB for this stretch were P Hayden Wesneski (#15 prospect), SS Oswald Peraza (#3 prospect) and INF Oswaldo Cabrera (#16 prospect).

Rehabbing Noah Syndergaard started for Syracuse, the Mets’ affiliate. Another rehabbing Met, Robert Gsellman, replaced Syndergaard.

For SWB, rehabbing Jameson Taillon started. 3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 2 K. Wesneski replaced him and had pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings when the game was suspended.

LF Miguel Andujar on rehab 0 for 2.
SS Peraza 0 for 2
2B Cabrera 2 for 2
RF Ryan LaMarre 2-run HR

AA Somerset and High A Hudson Valley seasons are over.

Low A: Tampa lost 6-1 and trail their championship best-of-five series two games to none. 2B Cooper Bowman (#30 prospect) 2 hits. 3B Benjamin Cowles HR. LF Kyle Battle 2 hits.


Minor league action from 9-12-21.

AAA: SWB (64-47) lost 8-7 after taking a 7-1 lead into the top of the eighth. Brooks Kriske faced five batters and walked all five. 27 pitches, only 7 strikes, 1 WP. Wow. DH Ryan LaMarre 2 hits, RBI. C Donny Sands (#28 prospect) solo HR. RF Socrates Brito 2 RBI, solo HR.

AA: Somerset (69-44) won 11-3. CF Brandon Lockridge (#19 prospect) 2 hits, RBI. SS Oswald Peraza (#3 prospect) 2-run HR. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera (#16 prospect) 2 for 2, RBI, 3 walks. LF Michael Beltre 2-run HR. 1B Dermis Garcia solo HR.
DH Isiah Gilliam solo HR. C Jason Lopez solo HR.

High A: Hudson Valley (68-46) won 13-9. SS Anthony Volpe (#1 prospect) 2 hits. CF Everson Pereira (#13 prospect) 3-run HR. DH Austin Wells (#6 prospect) 2 hits, 3 RBI, 2-run HR. 3B Andres Chaparro 2 hits, 3 RBI, solo HR. RF Elijah Dunham (#24 prospect) 2 hits, RBI, solo HR. 1B Eric Wagaman 2 hits, RBI.
