Of course, we will have to see if any prospects are used in a trade between now and the trade deadline of July 30. Also, some prospects are untouchable. We’ll have to see which ones are in that category

Game 94. Yanks walk-off Phils in 10, 6-5.

The Yanks moved into sole possession of third place in the AL East with a 6-5, 10-inning walk-off win over the Phils last night. The Yanks are 50-44, 7 GB.

The game featured both teams using spot, emergency starters. Both starters did surprisingly well, considering.

Asher Wojciechowski started for the Yanks, and things looked like they would be bleak when he gave up a HR to Jean Segura of the Phils on his first pitch of the game. But he settled in to just give up 2 runs in 4 IP. Hoy Jun Park was sent down to make room for Wojciechowski on the roster.

After the Phils made it 2-0 in the third inning, the Yanks came back to tie the game in the fourth. With two out, Gleyber Torres homered (6). Brett Gardner singled, and then Greg Allen, who has really given the Yankees a jolt, doubled in Gardner to tie the score.

The Yanks got three runs in the bottom of the seventh to go up 5-2. With one out, rookie Estevan Florial singled, then stole second. After another out, Giancarlo Stanton singled in Florial, then Rougned Odor hit a 2-run HR (11).

The Yanks’ bullpen couldn’t hold the lead, as Zack Britton and Nick Nelson combined to give up three runs in the top of the eighth to allow the Phils to tie the game.

The Yanks had a chance to walk it off in the ninth, but couldn’t get the run in, so to extra innings it went.

Gary Sanchez was the “ghost” runner in the tenth, a rule that (thankfully) seems like it will be going away and back to the minors. Gleyber Torres sacrifice bunted Sanchez to third, and PH Ryan LaMarre singled in Sanchez with the winning run.

Brooks Kriske got his first MLB win.

The Yanks were fortunate. They won despite issuing 11 walks. The Phils were 1 for 14 w/RISP.

The Yanks now head to Boston for a big 4-game series.

Odor 2-run HR (11)
Torres solo HR (6)

Game 90. Depleted Yanks get shut-out, 4-0.

Major problems. And these could sink the Yankees’ season.

The Yanks were already without Jonathan Loaisiga (Covid list). Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar were on the IL, not to mention others like Corey Kluber, Aaron Hicks and Darren O’Day.

Now add to the Covid List Wandy Peralta, Nestor Cortes, Jr. Aaron Judge, Kyle Higashioka and Gio Urshela. Add Luke Voit (knee) to the IL.

As a result, a bunch of guys had to be brought up from SWB. Hoy Jun Park and Trey Amburgey each made their MLB debuts last night. Rob Brantly had to be brought up. Chris Gittens, just off the IL himself, had to come up. Zack Britton was activated off of the IL. Am I missing anyone?

The depleted Yanks lost to Boston 4-0, getting just three hits. They are 0-7 vs. Boston this year, and are now 9 back and in fourth place with a 46-44 record. They play Boston six more times between now and June 25. They have Tampa Bay June 27-29. (In between there are two games with the Phillies).

Those guys out will be out for a while, leaving it up to the scrubs. This could get ugly.

So what did we see last night? The Yanks had a #3 hitter hitting .219, a cleanup hitter hitting .215, A #5 hitter at .237, a #6 hitter at .190. The #7 hitter is 2 for 22 in his MLB career. The #8 hitter was making his MLB debut. The #9 hitter is at .180 and was pinch-hit for by another guy making his MLB debut. Hoo boy. Is it any wonder why the Yanks got shut out?

Poor Jordan Montgomery. No run support. Montgomery had just one bad inning, the second, when he gave up a walk, double, RBI groundout, and a 2-run HR for 3 runs. That was more than enough for Boston. The second straight game he lost 4-0. In his last five starts, Montgomery has lost four of them. In those five games, the Yankees have scored a total of seven runs.

Later, Justin Wilson, who has been absolutely brutal this season, gave up a solo HR for the last run of the game. 4-0, Boston.

Montgomery (L, 3-5) 6 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up 1 HR. One bad inning. 4.18
German 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 4.72
Wilson 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 8.62 Gave up 1 HR.
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 4.40


Covid concerns postpone Yankees’ Game/Minor League Report

The Yankees/Red Sox game on Thursday night was postponed due to Covid concerns, and the whole four-game weekend series could be in jeopardy. Things could get even worse for MLB. This could affect each team.

Besides Jonathan Loaisiga, who tested positive before the All-Star Game, Nestor Cortes, Jr. and Wandy Peralta have also tested positive. The Yanks made roster substitutions, reinstating Zack Britton off of the IL, bringing up Trey Amburgey, and putting Hoy Jun Park on the taxi squad.

Then it was reported that Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela and Kyle Higashioka are in protocol. First reports are that they are positive too, but further testing is needed to confirm.

Since Judge was just a starter and played at the All-Star Game, if he was/is positive, then every team has a problem, especially with its All-Stars, and MLB is then in a tizzy.

Hoo Boy.

Funny how all four teams above all basically close to the same record.

Minor League Report/Judge an All-Star/Subway Series

Before we get into the minor league report, some Yankees news. The Subway Series starts tonight, weather permitting (rain in the forecast could cause another rainout). The Yankees caught a break in that they miss the Mets’ Jacob DeGrom. Even though he gave up 3 runs last night, DeGrom’s ERA is still an astonishing 0.95.

Starters for the All-Star Game have been announced and the Yankees will have one starter in Aaron Judge. We’ll have to see about pitchers and reserves as far as any other Yankees being selected.

Even thought the Yankees (41-39, 4th in AL East) were rained out last night, they lost ground. They are now 9 back of Boston, who won last night.

Now the minor league report. Once again, rain wreaked havoc.

AAA: SWB Split a doubleheader.

Game 1; Completion of suspended game. SWB (34-14) lost 6-2. Nick Nelson started and gave up 2 R in 2 IP before the game was suspended. When the game resumed, Deivi Garcia took the mound. Nelson took the loss, and he is 1-1, 2.73 at AAA after going a horrendous 0-2, 9.75 ERA with the Yankees. Garcia’s troublesome season continues. He pitched 4 innings, and although he struck out 7, he gave up 3 runs. Garcia in two starts with the Yankees was 0-2, 6.48, but his AAA ERA is an atrocious 8.55. 2B Hoy Jun Park 2 hits, solo HR. (How I wish the Yanks would replace Odor with Park, who is at .350 and more versatile). DH Ryan LaMarre 2 hits.

Game 2: SWB won 1-0 in a rain-shortened 5 inning game. Both teams only had 2 hits each in this game.

AA: Somerset (32-17) was supposed to have a doubleheader. They won the first game, 4-3. The second was rained out. Ken Waldichuk 5 IP, 3 R, but only 1 was earned. 3 hits, 8 K. ERA at AA 3.60, overall (High A/AA) this season, 10 starts, 3-0, 1.18. In 20 minor league starts, 3-2, 2.16.

High A: Hudson Valley rained out.

Low A: Tampa (33-15) was supposed to play a doubleheader. They won the first game 8-1 in a 7-inning game. SS Anthony Volpe should be promoted soon. 2 hits, 4 RBI, a grand slam (.316-10-45). 2B Trevor Hauver 3 for 3, RBI. DH Carlos Narvaez 2 for 2, RBI. Three Tampa pitchers combined on a one-hitter.

The second game was suspended before Tampa came to bat in the bottom of the first. Jupiter had not scored in the top of the first.



Minor league report. SWB destroys LV.

AAA: SWB (32-13) absolutely destroyed Lehigh Valley, 19-1. They got 10 runs in the third inning, bashed out 23 hits, and only gave up 2 hits. SWB used eight pitchers. Pitching highlights were the rehab guys. Darren O’Day 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. Justin Wilson 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K. Adam Warren 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.

Park SS 4 hits, solo HR. 2 RBI. Hitting .360 at AAA. Wish he would replace Odor. (Park also plays 2B)
Gittens 1B 4 hits, 8 RBI. 2 HR, double. Solo shot and a grand slam.
Amburgey LF 3 hits, all doubles. 2 RBI. Hitting .356. Wish he’d be replacing Frazier.
