Minor League action from 8/20/21. Almost another no-hitter!

AAA: One night after a 7-inning no-hitter, SWB (55-36) almost threw another one, as their attempt to go back-to-back was broken up in the eighth inning of a 14-2 win. SWB has two no-hitters this year, Somerset and Hudson Valley one each.

Minor league action, 8-12-21. Not a good rehab start for Kluber. Great night for Pereira.

While the major leaguers (Yanks/White Sox) were at the Field of Dreams, the minor leaguers have dreams of their own. To make “the show.”

AAA: SWB (50-32) won 10-3 in a game completed early because of inclement weather. CF Greg Allen (wish Yanks kept him up) 2 hits. RF Ryan LaMarre 2-run HR. LF Brandon Wagner solo HR. 3B Armando Alvarez 2 hits. DH/RF Socrates Brito 3 hits, RBI. SS Kyle Holder 2 RBI. C Jason Lopez 2-run HR. 2B Cristian Perez 3 hits.

AA: Somerset (52-34) lost 8-7. Rehab start for Corey Kluber, and not a good one. Hopefully just rust and nothing physical. 1 1/3 IP, 5 R, 2 H, 4 W, 1 K. 2 HBP, 1 WP. Nowhere close to his usual control.

Ken Waldichuk, who’s been good this year, had an off night. Maybe because instead of starting, he came in to relieve Kluber. He took the loss. 4 2/3 IP, 3 R, 7 H, 0 W, 4 K. 2 HBP. (4-2, 3.71 at AA; Overall this year: 6-2, 2.36.)

Minor League Report.

AAA: SWB (36-18) lost 2-1 in 10 innings. A decent outing (finally) for the struggling Deivi Garcia, but he was still wild. 5 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 5 W, 1 HBP, 3 K. Still a 7.45 ERA in AAA. 2B Hoy Jun Park 1 for 2, 2 walks (.355). C Rob Brantly 2 hits. SS Andrew Velazquez 2 hits.

Top prospect Jasson Dominguez, 18, who is playing in the Florida complex league, had his first multi-hit game yesterday, and first RBI. So far he is 4 for 20 (.200) all singles, 2 SB, has walked 6x and was HBP once. He’ll be playing in Sunday’s futures game.

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

A minor trade, and when do we hear about German? Also, it’s early, but a look at the HOF tracker.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Last week, with the official signing of Gerrit Cole, the Yankees designated Chance Adams for assignment.

Today they traded Adams to KC for a minor league infielder, Cristian Perez.

Perez, 21, is primarily a SS who has played a little at 2B and 3B. The righty hitter was at High-A Wilmington last season and hit .252-0-42 in 117 games. He stole 5 bases but was caught 10x.

Adams had some nice minor league seasons in 2016 and 2017 but had arm surgery and in the past two seasons hasn’t been the same. In 33 MLB IP (2018-2019) he is 1-2 with a ghastly 8.18 ERA (ERA+ 55).

So, when will MLB finally decide on German’s punishment for the domestic abuse incident? It’s taking long enough, isn’t it?

Only 50 ballots are known so far in the HOF vote, and I do see some surprises.

Now 50 is just 12.4% of ballots known, but neither Jason Giambi (an MVP, 440 HR) nor Paul Konerko (439 HR) have received a vote so far. I can see Giambi being snubbed due to BALCO and the steroids, but Konerko?

Raul Ibanez and Adam Dunn (462 HR) also have not received a vote so far, either.

Neither has Cliff Lee, or Alfonso Soriano (412 HR) for that matter.

Bobby Abreu is at 7.8%, Andy Pettitte 13.7%, enough as of now, to keep them on the ballot.

Andruw Jones (434 hr) 21.6%, Gary Sheffield (509 hr) 29.4%.

Showing that a lot of HR doesn’t matter to the voters anymore. 400 or 500 HR isn’t automatic anymore.

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds are just shy of the 75%, both at 74.5%. Usually the votes that are NOT known about bring Clemens and Bonds further down.

As of now, and it’s still EARLY (vote announced 1/21), the three that WOULD get in are Derek Jeter (at 100% so far), Larry Walker (86.3) and Curt Schilling (82.4).

WS Game 3. Houston gets win they needed, 4-1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Houston couldn’t afford to go down 0-3 in the WS and did not, beating Washington 4-1 in the first WS game in our nation’s capital since 1933.

Washington still leads the WS two games to one.

It’s the first time the road team has won the first three games of the World Series since 1996 (Braves/Yankees).

Twice, Jose Altuve doubled and scored for Houston. He was one of four Astros with 2 hits. The Astros, recognizing the need to win this game, used six pitchers.

San Diego filled their managerial void by choosing Jayce Tingler as their new manager.

ESPN may lose yet another broadcaster to the managerial reins. Aaron Boone to the Yanks in 2018, David Ross to the Cubs next year, and now Eduardo Perez is said to be the frontrunner for the Mets job.

Former Yankees coach Joe Espada, Houston’s bench coach, could be in line for the Giants’ job.

WS Game 2. Washington going home with 2-0 Series lead. Cubs choose Ross as mgr.


The Washington Nationals, the biggest WS underdog since the 2007 Colorado Rockies (who got swept by Boston) are heading home after whipping Houston 12-3 in Game 2 last night.

In winning both games at Houston, Washington beat Gerrit Cole AND Justin Verlander. Verlander has now started six WS games in his career, and is 0-5.

Stephen Strasburg gave up a 2-run HR to Alex Bregman in the first inning, but nothing after that as he pitched six innings for the win.

Five different Nationals had two hits, as they banged out 14, including 3 HR.

The Cubs apparently have chosen ESPN broadcaster David Ross as their new manager, replacing Joe Maddon who has moved on to the Angels. Remember the surprise when the Yankees chose Aaron Boone two years ago? And Eduardo Perez (Tony’s son), an ESPN broadcaster, is still in the mix for some open managerial jobs, too.

The Arizona Fall League ends tomorrow, Friday. The Surprise Saguaros, which has some Yankees’ prospects, are 16-11, have clinched their division and will be playing in the Championship game on Saturday.  Stats for those prospects.
