Minor League Action 8-21-21.

AAA: SWB (55-37) has tossed two no-hitters this year, and this time almost had it turned on them. They lost 2-0 and only got one hit, a single by C Donny Sands (Yanks’ #28 prospect) in the seventh inning. Deivi Garcia (L, 2-6, 6.87) 4 2/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 4 W, 7 K. Garcia’s rough year has slid him from being the Yankees’ #3 prospect to #11. One article I read has a MLB scout really criticizing the Yanks for messing with Garcia as far as his delivery, etc. Not a pleasant read, but a good one. Very interesting and informative.

AA: Somerset (55-39) won 7-1. New #3 Prospect SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits, 2 RBI. Starting Pitcher Shawn Semple 6 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 1 W, 6 K (6-2, 3.30). 2B Oswaldo Cabrera (#16 Yanks’ prospect) 2 hits. CF Michael Beltre 2 hits. DH Mickey Gasper 2 RBI, solo HR. LF Ben Pita 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR.

The forthcoming hurricane coming up the East coast has already cancelled the Sunday game for AAA SWB and also has postponed the game for High A Hudson Valley (rescheduled for Sept. 8).

Minor League Action, 8-17-21. Kluber, Andujar on rehab.

AAA: SWB completed a suspended game (won 7-4) and lost the regularly scheduled game, 2-0. SWB is 52-35. That suspended game actually had Luis Gil and Andrew Velazquez in the game when it was begun on July 17. Both played in the Bronx for the Yankees yesterday.

Suspended game: CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, RBI; RF Matt Pita solo HR; 2B Kyle Holder 3 for 3, 2 RBI.

Gil, last night’s starter for the Yanks, had started this game on July 17, pitching the first inning, giving up no runs on one hit and striking out one. When the game resumed last night, Corey Kluber was on the mound in his rehab assignment. 3 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up a HR. He did get the win, but in his two rehab stints so far, Kluber is 1-0 but with a 16.62 ERA, having given up 8 runs in 4 1/3 IP. Hopefully he is physically ok and just needs to work on his command and get his mojo back after being on the IL so long. Sal Romano pitched the last inning, 1 R, 3 H, 3 K. The game had been suspended after six innings at 0-0.

Regular game: Miguel Andujar went 1 for 3 on rehab. SWB only got two hits. With Joey Gallo on the team, and Gio Urshela 80% and probably coming back soon, you wonder where there is a place on the Yankees for Andujar right now.

AA: Somerset (54-36) won 9-1. SS Oswald Peraza (#4 prospect) 4 hits, 3 RBI, 2 doubles, solo HR. 2B Oswaldo Cabrera (#22 prospect) 2 hits, 3 RBI. C Josh Breaux (#14 prospect) 2 hits. CF Michael Beltre 2 hits. 1B Dermis Garcia 2 hits, RBI. RF Tom Milone 2 hits, RBI. Starting P Hayden Wesneski (#24 prospect) 6 scoreless IP.

High A: Hudson Valley (57-34) won 3-2 in 10 innings. DH Mickey Gasper solo HR. 3B James Nelson 2 hits.

Low A: Tampa (60-28) lost 4-3. DH Carlos Narvaez 2-run HR. C Ben Rice 2 hits.
