cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: Gleyber Torres suffered a hyperextended elbow sliding home in SWB’s (40-26) 6-2 win on Saturday. This was the first game of a DH that SWB swept.

Reg. scheduled game. SS Tyler Wade 2 hits, CF Dustin Fowler 3 hits, RBI.  Both stole 2 bases. LF Clint Frazier 2 hits, Rbi.

When will the Yanks bring up Chance Adams? Esp. w/CC on the DL and Tanaka struggling? Between AA/AAA, Adams is 8-2, 1.78.

Adams (4-2, 2.43) 5 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 3 W, 4 K.
Mantiply (S, 1) 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K. 3.03

Makeup of 4/7 rainout: SWB won 4-0. SS Wade two hits, 2B Donovan Solano 2 hits. 2 hits, RBI 1B Ji-Man Choi (.296). C Wilkin Castillo solo HR.

What a job by Adonis Rosa, who jumped all the way from Low A to AAA to make the start for the pitching strapped Railriders. With all the recent moves, SWB needed a starter.

Rosa (W, 1-0, 0.00) 6 IP, 0 R, 6 H, 0 W, 4 K. AAA debut.
Webb 1 Ip, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K. 3.09.

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.

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.

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.

Minor League Report. Adams dominates.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (29-20) swept a DH.

Game 1: Won 6-0. Chance Adams just dominated (see below). 2 H, HR, 2 RBI for both SS Tyler Wade and RF Dustin Fowler. C Wilkin Castillo 3 for 3, RBI.

Between AA and AAA this year, Adams is 7-1, 1.24 in 10 starts. His career Minor League record is 23-3, 1.96.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Yanks “found” something wrong with Tanaka to get him straightened out and called up Adams if Tanaka’s struggles continue.

Game 2: They won 4-3. C Eddy Rodriguez 2 RBI.

Minor League Report. Frazier HRs for third straight game. News on Torres & Adams.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (26-18) won 4-2 as RF Clint Frazier homered for his third straight game. He was 2 for 3 with a double and the solo HR.

I don’t mean to pick on Chase Headley, but just stating something that is fact and could be a harbinger of what may be to come, and appears to be of no coincidence. Headley is hitting .158 since April 19th. Meanwhile, since being called up to AAA, all three of Gleyber Torres’ games have had him starting at 3B. You can read the tea leaves here.

Torres was 2 for 3 with an RBI last night. Just putting one and one together, here.

Mason Williams had 2 hits and an RBI.

Chance Adams improved his career minor league record to 22-3, 2.01.

The Yanks won’t rush them, but you have to start wondering how close Torres and Adams are to making their MLB debuts.

Adams (W, 2-1, 2.12 AAA, overall AA/AAA this year—6-1, 1.38) 5 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 W, 4 K.

Frieri (S, 5 ) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.29

AA: Trenton (30-16) won 8-6. Good to see good records at both AAA and AA, and even High and Low A ball are over .500.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits.
CF Jake Cave 3 hits, 2 doubles, 3 RBI.
3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 2 RBI
LF Zack Zehner 3 hits, rbi.
RF Billy McKinney 2 hits.
2B Abiatal Avelino 2 hits, RBI.

Lefty Josh Rogers made his AA debut after going 4-3, 2.22 at High-A Tampa.

Low A: Charleston (24-23) scored in the bottom of the 13th to win 2-1. C Eduardo Navas the GW single. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, solo HR. 2 hits each for 3B Angel Aguilar and SS Hoy Jun Park.

I can’t keep up with all promotions/demotions, but if I see one (like Rogers, above) I will mention it.
