Rain wreaks havoc again. Here are some minor league results. Rortvedt begins rehab.

Rain Saturday washed out the Yankees game (to be made up Monday afternoon) as well as the games of their AA and High A farm teams. Here are the games that WERE played.

AAA: SWB (10-18) lost both games of a doubleheader.

Game 1: lost 9-2, getting just four hits.

D. Garcia (L, 0-2) 3 2/3 IP, 6 R, 4 ER, 4 H, 3 W, 4 K. gave up 1 HR. 2 WP 9.17 (#29 prospect)
McClain 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 6.52
Espinal 1 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 W, 0 K. 9.82

Is anyone else (I’m sure you all are) concerned about the regression of Deivi Garcia? Garcia is 3-9, 7.23 at AAA between last year and this. Garcia is still young, turning 23 in less than two weeks, but his regression is concerning. I think, based on recent results, it’s time to send Deivi down to AA and promote Ken Waldichuk (#6 prospect) from AA to AAA. Waldichuk is 2-0, 1.45 in four starts at AA this year, 28 K in 18 2/3 IP. Between 2021 and 2022, Waldichuk has gone 6-3, 3.67 at AA with 136 K in 98 IP.

Game 2: Lost 7-6 in 10 innings.
RF Phillip Evans 2 hits, 2 RBI. 2-run HR (2)

Ex-manager Ray Miller dies at age 76

One-time MLB manager Ray Miller has passed away at the age of 76.

Miller took over in the Twins in mid-1985, and was 50-50 as they finished 4th. The next year, he was 59-80 when he was replaced by Tom Kelly. The Twins finished 6th. Kelly led the Twins to the WS Championship in 1987.

Miller then managed the Orioles in 1998 and 1999, going 79-83, then 78-84, finishing 4th both years.

He was 266-297 as a manager, winning pct. .472 which over a 162 game season, averages out as 76-86.

Miller, Simmons make HOF. Munson, Mattingly and John come up short.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

It would have been nice to see two or even three Yankee captains entering the HOF on the same day but it won’t happen.

Thurman Munson and Don Mattingly were not elected to the HOF yesterday by a committee, so neither will be joining Derek Jeter (expected to get in, perhaps unanimously, by the writers) and Tommy John was not elected either.

Elected were Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons.

Miller, who died in 2012 at the age of 95, was a union leader who fought for players rights, such as free agency and against the reserve clause and as a result, player’s salaries skyrocketed.

Simmons, a switch-hitting C, played for St. Louis 1968-1980, Milwaukee 1981-1985, and Atlanta 1986-1988. He helped the Brewers win the 1982 AL Pennant. He got MVP consideration 7x, finished in the top 10 3x, and was an 8x All Star. His 162 g. average was .285-16-92 with an OPS+ of 118. He hit .186-3-8 in 17 postseason games. He had 2472 hits and 248 HR.
