Minor League Report. Acevedo, Estrada continue to impress, Chapman rehab, FSL All Stars.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

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.

Acevedo (W, 1-0, 1.29) 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 5 W, 4 K.
Layne 1 2/3 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 1 w, 2 K. 0.00   Sent here after DFA and not claimed.
Heller 1/3 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.57

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.

1B Mike Ford solo HR. Aroldis Chapman put in a rehab appearance, hmmm…. Chapman is expected to rejoin the Yanks on Sunday.

Chapman 2/3 IP, 1 R, 0 H, 2 W, 2 K. 13.50. Threw two WP. Hit 102.
Pena 3 1/3 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K. 0.00. Just promoted, first AA game.
Mesa (BS, 1) 2 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 W, 3 K. 1.80. Just promoted, 2nd AA game.
Marsh (W, 2-2, 3.68) 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 5 K.
Rumbelow (S,1) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 0.00

High A: Tampa off. The Florida State League All-Star Game is today. For the FSL North, from Tampa (and some of these players have already been promoted to AA Trenton): P Cody Carroll, P Zack Littell, P Dillon McNamara, P Jose Mesa (son of ex-MLB reliever Jose Mesa), P Josh Rogers, SS Jorge Mateo (even though he is struggling). OF Tito Polo.

Low A: Charleston (32-36) lost 4-1. LF Ben Ruta and 3B Mandy Alvarez 2 hits each. RBI for Ruta.

Nelson (L, 0-6, 6.34) 3 1/3 IP, 4 R, 5 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.
DeCarr 4 2/3 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 1 W, 4 K. 2.16

Minor league report.

AAA: SWB was off.

AA: Trenton was off.

High A: Tampa (33-31) won 2-1 in 11 innings. 2B Nick Solak 3 hits. DH Jhalen Jackson solo HR.

Mesa 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 4 K. 1.67 (Jose Mesa, son of former reliever Jose Mesa)

Minor League Report. Chance Adams.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Ernesto Frieri, who opted out of his Yanks’ contract w/SWB, signed with Texas.

AAA: SWB (32-23, same as the big club) lost 8-1. Chance Adams started and did well, pitching five scoreless innings before making a mistake in the sixth that was hit for a 3-run HR. The bullpen and defense fell apart after that. SWB struck out 17x. Former Yankee farmhand Nik Turley struck out 15 SWB batters in 6 IP. 3B Tyler Wade (.300) 2 hits. Besides Gleyber Torres, Wade could be an in-house option for 3B what with Headley struggling.

Adams isn’t on the 40-man roster, so the Yanks would have to make a move there if they brought him up. With Tanaka’s struggles, who knows?

Adams (L, 3-2, 2.17) 6 Ip, 3 R, 3 H, 4 W, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR. Overall this yr 7-2, 1.55. Overall minor league career: 23-4, 2.03.

Feyereisen 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 H, 2 W, 1 K. 6.75
Mantiply 0 IP, 1 r, unearned, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.55
Graham 1 1/3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 1 W, 2 K. 5.11

AA: Trenton (36-20) won 6-3. SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits, 2 RBI. 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, RBI. 1B Billy Fleming 2 hits, 3 RBI.

Rogers (W, 2-0, 4.00) 5 2/3 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 2 W, 7 K. gave up 2 HR
Cortes (H, 1) 1/3 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W. 0 K. 3.48
Rumbelow (H, 1) 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 5 K. 0.00
Brewer 1 IP, 1 R, unearned, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.19

High A:  Tampa (30-29) lost 2-1. They got just two hits, one a double by rehabbing 1B Greg Bird.

Abreu 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 5.09. No word why he left early.
Mesa 3 Ip, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K. 1.88
Pena 2 Ip, 0 r, 0 H, 3 W, 2 K. 3.38
Gomez (BS, 1; L, 2-2, 3.07) 2 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 0 W, 4 K.

Low A: Charleston rained out.

Minor League Report. Herrera continues to dominate AA.

header_1.jpg

AAA: SWB  (31-22) lost 2-0, and got just two hits. 3B Gleyber Torres is coming, but that may be a bit delayed, since Torres is hitting just .194 since his promotion to AAA eleven games ago. Remember, he is only 20. He was 0 for 3 with a walk and struck out twice. DH Tyler Austin, on rehab (which should be finishing soon) was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. SWB struck out 11x.

Cessa (L, 2-6, 4.42) 8 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 0 w, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Jones 1 Ip, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.30

Despite their good record, SWB is 5 GB of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Phillies affiliate) in their division, but sitting in a wild card position. Of course, it’s still early.

AA: Trenton (35-19, 1st place by 2.5 in their division) won 6-5, surviving a scare when they gave up 5 in the bottom of the 9th.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits, 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 1B Billy Fleming 3 hits, CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI, and 2 RBI for 2B Abiatal Avelino.

Ronald Herrera is another prospect having a great year and someone to keep an eye on. The righty just turned 22.

Herrera (W, 6-0, 1.24) 7 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 6 K.
Frare 1 IP, 3 R, 1 H, 2 W, 1 K. 5.40
Coshow 1/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K. 4.18
Brewer (S, 2 ) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.38

Pena 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 3.68

Low A: Charleston (27-28, 5th, 7 GB) won 5-0. RF Isiah Gilliam 2-run HR. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera solo HR. LF Ben Ruta 3 hits.

Diehl (W, 6-1, 3.79) 5 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K.
Espinal (H, 1) 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K. 1.35
Mundell 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.18

Minor League Report. Bird starts rehab. Austin near ready?

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (30-21) lost 6-3. 1B Tyler Austin may be done with his rehab, ready for a callup, and that doesn’t bode well for a struggling Chris Carter. Austin was 3 for 4, HR, 2 RBI. 2B Ruben Tejada solo HR.

Not only that, but see below. Greg Bird started his rehab with Tampa.

If anything happens to Sanchez or Romine, the Yanks may be a little thin catcher-wise. Kyle Higashioka is on the DL and the Yanks’ catchers at SWB right now are Eddy Rodriguez and Wilkin Castillo.

Smith 6 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 1 W, 9 K. 2.94
Feyereisen (L, 0-1, 4.50) 2 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 H, 2 W, 1 K. 1st AAA game, called up from AA.

Ramirez 3 IP, 0 R 3 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.52
Cortes (W 3-0, 3.51) 6 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 W, 4 K.

I don’t know why Ramirez left early.

High A:  Tampa (27-27) lost 6-4. 1B Greg Bird started his rehab and went 1 for 1 (single) with 2 walks.

DH Chris Gittens 2 hits, solo HR. 1B Mandy Alvarez replaced Bird in the middle of the game and had 2 RBI.

Koerner (L, 0-1, 3.60) 5 2/3 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 7 H, 3 W, 3 K.
Hissong 2 1/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 7.11
