Minor League Report. Torres needs TJ surgery, done for year.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Yankees’ top prospect, INF Gleyber Torres, needs TJ surgery and is done for the year. He injured his non-throwing elbow sliding into home the other day and hyperextended the elbow, injuring ligaments as well.

The Yanks were possibly grooming Torres to take over at 3B for Chase Headley later this year. They also now have promoted 3B Miguel Andujar to AAA. Andujar is an option for the future at 3B, also the Yanks may look at the trade deadline for a 3B. They aren’t happy with Headley’s performance so far.

Besides 3B, the Yanks may also look to upgrade at starting pitching and 1B. With CC out until early August and Tanaka struggling, an upgrade in the rotation, via Chance Adams being called up,Fo or a trade, looks imminent.

Also, 1B has been a problem with Greg Bird hurt and shut down, and the disappointing performance of Chris Carter. Here, the Yanks could look at a promotion (Tyler Austin, Mike Ford, Ji-Man Choi) or look to trade.

These are three positions that bear watching over the next month. How do the Yanks upgrade here? Is there a big deal brewing?

AAA: SWB (42-26) won 6-1. CF Dustin Fowler double, HR, 2 RBI. 3 hits, HR, 2 RBI LF Jake Cave. 3 hits, RBI 2B Donovan Solano. RF Clint Frazier 2 hits.

AAA: SWB (38-26) won 8-1. 2B Tyler Wade (.317) 2 hits, RBI. CF Dustin Fowler (who I thought they’d call up instead of Mason Williams, but apparently Fowler isn’t on the 40-man roster) 2 hits, 2 RBI. DH Tyler Austin 2 hits, RBI. RF Clint Frazier 3-run HR. SS Gleyber Torres 3 hits.

Domingo Acevedo promoted. First AAA game. Rapidly rising. Was 0-4, 4.57 at Tampa this year, then 2-0, 1.62 at AA, now this. Overall 3-4, 3.09.

AA: Trenton (43-22) won 4-2. Gleyber Torres gets all the attention, deservedly, but SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits, .323. Jorge Mateo at High A has been struggling and has already been passed on the SS depth chart by Torres, Wade and Estrada. Trade bait? Torres is 20, but Estrada is only 21.

Minor League Report. Hot Torres HR’s again, Austin’s rehab rained out, Adams good in loss.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (22-17) lost 2-1. Chance Adams pitched well, but took the loss, which drops his career minor league record to 21-3. Dustin Fowler (CF, .303) had two of SWB’s five hits.

Adams (1-1, 1.53) 7 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR. (5-1, 1.15 overall AA/AAA)

Marsh 1 1/3, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K. 4.66

There have been a few promotions/demotions lately. Adams and Acevedo are just two.

High A: Tyler Austin was to begin his rehab, but the game was rained out. With Chris Carter struggling, it’ll be interesting to see what happens when Bird and/or Austin are ready. The Yanks have been winning without production from the 1B position, where they are last in the majors. Bird and Carter have been a combined 23 for 140 (.164) with 3 HR, 14 RBI, and 57 strikeouts. Bird, of course, is hurt, and that injury probably really affected him. As for who else they have, Ji-Man Choi was hitting over .350 at SWB but he is on the DL (hamstring). Mike Ford, 24, a lefty bat, started the year at AA and went up to AAA with the injury to Choi. Ford is hitting a combined (AA/AAA) .304-5-25.

With the Yanks playing Torres at 2B, 3B and SS, maybe 1B could be next, considering the Yanks’ problems there? (JUST KIDDING!)

Low A: Charleston (20-21) won 5-3. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 RBI.

Nelson 4 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 W, 6 K. 6.75
Sosebee (w, 2-1, 3.55) 4 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 w, 5 K. 3.55

Sure. Just when I advocate calling up Ji-Man Choi to see how he’d do at 1B (.350+ at SWB) he goes on the 7-day DL.

AAA: SWB (19-16) scored 4 in the bottom of the 12th to win 8-4.

Walkoff grand slam by C Eddy Rodriguez, who had 2 hits.

Solo HR by 2B Tyler Wade (.326), who had 2 hits. (12 SB)
