Minor League Report. Sanchez on rehab.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (64-51) lost 12-2. Gary Sanchez, on rehab, 1 for 3 but made an error (catcher’s interference). It must be said that Austin Romine and Kyle Higashioka have done great in his absence—the Orioles lack of pitching helping a lot in that department. SWB made four errors in the game, and one was by Clint Frazier.

Maybe the IL stint will help Sanchez regain his stroke. He was 10 for his last 85 before going on the IL.

RF Trey Amburgey 2 hits. DH Erik Kratz 2 RBI.

AA: Trenton’s game was suspended in the fifth inning. To be completed today, August 8.

High A: Tampa (52-60) lost 9-2. C Jason Lopez solo HR. Daniel Bies 4 1/3 scoreless relief innings, 5 K.

Low A: Charleston off.
