AAA: SWB (16-6) won 3-2. 2B Hoy Jun Park 3 for 3 with 2 walks, solo HR. LF Trey Amburgey 2-run HR. SS Andrew Velazquez 2 hits.
AA: Somerset (16-7) split a DH.
In Game 1, Zack Britton pitched one scoreless inning, giving up one hit, as he started his rehab stint.
Game 1: Lost 6-1. Solo HR by RF Isiah Gilliam. Somerset only got 3 hits, made 4 errors.
Game 2: Won 12-0. In the seven-inning (b/c of DH) game, three Somerset pitchers combined on a 2-hitter with 14 strikeouts. CF Michael Beltre 2 hits, solo HR. 2B Diego Castillo 2 RBI. LF Matt Pita 2 hits, 4 RBI. SS Max Burt 2 hits, RBI. RF Aaron Palensky 2 hits, RBI.
High A: Hudson Valley (13-10) swept a DH.
Game 1: Won 2-0 on a one-hitter. Keep an eye on LHP Ken Waldichuk. 4 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 9 K. ERA 0.00. Waldichuk is 23 and a lefty. In 15 minor league starts, 48 IP (needs to be stretched out), he is 0-2, but he has a 2.25 ERA, and 87 strikeouts in those 48 innings pitched. He’s only given up 27 hits and 15 walks in those 48 IP, so his WHIP is 0.875. I’ve never heard of him before now, but those numbers are darned impressive. Build him up and move him up.
In the game, 2B Ezequiel Duran solo HR. 3B James Nelson 2 hits. DH Alex Guerrero 2 hits.
Game 2: Won 4-3 on a walkoff single by 1B Eric Wagaman. SS Oswald Peraza (.323) 2 hits, RBI. C Saul Torres 2 RBI.

Hopefully the minor league recaps won’t take me as long as the recap of that Yankees/Red Sox game!

Before getting to the minor league report, some news on Giancarlo Stanton. Don’t expect to see him until August, what with the new injury (sprained PCL). What a wasted season for him.
AAA: SWB (46-32) split a DH.
Reg. Sched. game: won 6-4 but the real story here is of Domingo German’s rehab start which was only so-so, if that. He pitched 4 innings, gave up 4 runs, 4 hits, 2 Walks, 5 K. He gave up two two-run HRs in the third inning.
3B Breyvic Valera (.381) 2 hits, 3 RBI, solo HR. C Erik Kratz 2 hits, RBI.

Didi Gregorius continues his rehab with SWB tomorrow.

High A: Tampa off.
Low A: Charleston (28-23) won 9-7. 2B Kyle Gray 2 hits. DH Canaan Smith 2 hits, 2 RBI. (.327). C Mickey Gasper 4 RBI. RF Frederick Cuevas 2 hits, RBI. LF Matt Pita 2 hits. 1B Mitchell Robinson 2-run HR.
AAA: SWB (3-3) wins 5-1 over Lehigh Valley. Gio Gonzalez, who after the Yanks had signed him to a minor league deal, gave up 13 R, 12 ER in six innings in his first two appearances (one spring training and one AAA game) , put it together last night, pitching six shutout innings, giving up just 3 hits, and striking out 10. He walked one.
DH Mike Ford and SS Thairo Estrada each had 2 hits and an RBI. CF Billy Burns 2 hits.
With Luis Severino shut down, and, it appears, out until late June/early July, Gonzalez could now become an option for the Yankees’ rotation, or even the bullpen.
Another option could be signing free agent Dallas Keuchel.
But both options as far as the rotation goes, would most likely affect Domingo German, who so far, has pitched very well. As far as the bullpen, it most likely would affect Stephen Tarpley.
AA: Trenton (3-2) won 7-2. 2B Wendell Rijo 2-run HR. SS Hoy Jun Park solo HR. DH Rashad Crawford 2 hits. 3B Angel Aguilar 2 hits, 2 RBI. Three bullpen pitchers 5 IP, 0 R, 1 H.
High A: Tampa (2-4) lost 9-8. DH Matt Pita 3 hits, 4 RBI. 1B Dermis Garcia 2 RBI. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. Starter Rony Garcia 5 IP, 1 R, 7 K. End of game bullpen meltdown.
Low A: Charleston (3-3) lost both games of a DH, 17-3, then 8-3.
Game 1: CF Josh Stowers 2 hits. 2B Kyle Gray a 3-run HR.
Luis Medina 2 IP, 10 R, 10 H, 4 W, 3 K. Gave up 3 HR
Rodney Hutchinson 3 2/3 IP, 7 R, 3 H, 4 W, 3 K. Also gave up 3 HR.
Game 2: Got just four hits.
Alex Vizcaino 4 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 W, 7 K
Aaron McGarity (L) 1 1/3 IP, 6 R, 7 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.
