AAA: 6-2 loss for SWB. Bryan Mitchell had a terrible outing, getting just one out and giving up all six runs.

AAA: 5-3 win for SWB. They beat our old buddy, Chien Ming Wang, who is in the Braves’ system trying to get back to the majors but having a rough go of it. The 35-year-old Wang is 0-3, 5.64. LF Slade Heathcott 2 h, 2 RBI, .337. Bryan Mitchell (2-2, 2.59) 6 IP, 1 R, 4 H. See my Game 28 post of the big club. Mitchell is pitching well. Capuano, Nova, and Tanaka could all be ready in a few weeks. CC is 0-5, 5.45. What will the Yankees do?

AA: 9-1 Trenton win. Brady Lail 1 R, 5 IP. 2 RBI each for 1B Greg Bird, DH Eric Jagielo and 3B Dante Bichette, Jr.

High A:  9-1 Tampa win. Rookie Davis 1 R, 5 IP. Giovanny Gallegos 3 scoreless relief innings with 5 K. 16 hits for Tampa, with everybody in the lineup getting one. SS Tyler Wade .320, DH Matt Snyder .371.

A: Charleston won 3-1. 2 doubles and 2 RBI for DH Isaias Tejeda. Luis Cedeno 1 R in 5 IP (3-0, 0.59). Two scoreless innings each for Yoel Espinal (0.61) and Dillon McNamara (0.84).

AAA: SWB split a DH.

Game 1: 4-1 loss. SWB made 5 errors, 2 by Rob Refsnyder (7 this year, a BIG problem. He is averaging an error every other game and it is affecting his hitting (under .200) ). 3 runs given up were unearned. SWB got just 3 hits. Poor Bryan Mitchell pitched well, 7 IP, 4 R, 1 ER, 3 hits, 1 walk and 6 K. But with D like that and no hitting support…

Game 2: SWB won 7-4 to go to 8-9 on the season.  Refsnyder did bounce back with 2 hits and 3 rbi in this one, but besides the 7 errors, is still at just .217 for the young season. DH Slade Heathcott (.323) 2 hits, 2 Rbi. CF Ben Gamel 3 for 3, 2 doubles, triple, .419. Diego Moreno 4 scoreless IP, 1 hit.

AA: Trenton lost 7-3. DH Aaron Judge 2 hits. 1B Dan Fiorito 3 for 3, 2 doubles and 2 RBI.

High A: 3 hits for 3B Miguel Andujar in Tampa’s 7-3 loss. Andrew Bailey, trying to make it back to the majors after shoulder surgery, 2 R, 1 ER in 2/3 IP. 5.40 ERA so far. It would be nice to get him back to his former All-Star level but it is looking like patience will be needed if he ever does get back to it.

A: 6-5 Charleston win. 3 Hits 3B Abital Avelino. RF Austin Aune 2 doubles, rbi. CF Dustin Fowler 2 hits, rbi.

The minors today.

Ok, rumors earlier this week that the Yanks were scouting a guy in the Braves’ minor league system to be a 2B, now more rumors that they may be interested in a Cuban 2B named Andy Ibanez as a free agent. Ibanez is 22, said to have speed but not much power.  (NY Post) I don’t know if Pirela or Refsnyder are reading these reports, but it sure seems as if Refsnyder is, and is affected by them.

Refsnyder is off to a rough start with AAA SWB so far, hitting just .229. While there is belief that the bat will come around (he hit .372 in spring training), the concern is on his defense. The former OF converted to a 2B made six errors in spring training and now has five errors in 11 games for AAA so far. Part of me wonders if turning the pivot may be too much for an OF converted to 2B. Maybe 3B may be better. That’s just me.

AAA: SWB won 4-1. Bryan Mitchell 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 3 walks and 4 K. Jacob Lindgren 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk and 3 K. CF Ben Gamel 2 hits, RBI.

AA: Another great outing for top Yanks pitching prospect Luis Severino in Trenton’s 5-1 win. A bit wild, but 5 Ip, 1 R, 3 h, 4 walks and 6 K. 3B Eric Jagielo 2 hits, triple, 3 RBI.

A+: Tampa lost 7-2. 4 players with 2 hits each.

A: Charleston’s game was suspended with Charleston up 8-3 in the top of the sixth. The game will be completed 4/23.

Minor league report. Severino great in Trenton loss.

AA: Luis Severino, the Yanks top pitching prospect, had a great outing in Trenton’s 5-4, 1o-inning loss.   5 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 8 K. 1B Greg Bird had a HR. DH Dante Bichette, Jr. with a double, triple and an RBI.
