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.

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.

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.

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.

Yanks send Goody to Indians

Yankee Stadium Frieze

In a minor move, the Yankees sent Nick Goody to the Indians for a PTBNL or cash considerations.

Goody was DFA’d to make room on the 40 man roster when the Yanks re-signed Aroldis Chapman.

Goody, 25,  was 0-0, 4.66, 0 saves in 27 games with the Yanks in 2016. He was 0-0, 0 saves, 4.76 in 7 games with the Yanks in 2015.

This is one of several minor moves the Yanks have made this offseason to streamline their 40 man roster, such as releasing Dustin Ackley, who missed almost all of 2016 due to injury, releasing Nathan Eovaldi, who’ll miss all of 2017 following TJ surgery, and releasing Nick Rumbelow, who missed almost all of 2016 due to injury.

Rumors have the Yanks interested in Jose Quintana now that the White Sox are apparently in fire sale mode.

The Yanks once had Quintana. The soon-to-be 28 year old was in the Yankees’ system from 2008-2011. In 2011, he went 10-2, 2.91 at High A Tampa (30 games, 12 starts). He made the majors in 2012 and has gone 46-46, 3.41, ERA+ 118 since and in 2016 made the All-Star team. He was 13-12, 3.20 last season, finishing 10th in the CYA voting. With that ERA, you wonder what his record would be like on a better team.

The Yanks let him get away as a free agent after the 2011 season to make room for David Adams and Greg Golson on the roster. Ouch. Before even coming to the Yanks, Quintana was released by the Mets. Early in his career, he was suspended 50 games for violating drug policy.

So if the Yanks do get Quintana back, it’ll be to rectify a mistake they made five years ago. He is very affordable and will just be 28 in 2017. But it’ll cost. After acquiring a bunch of front-line prospects, do they really want to give up several now to get him?

Today in the minors. Rumbelow lost for the year.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Nick Rumbelow will have to undergo Tommy John surgery and will be done for the year.

AAA: SWB won 6-3. Tyler Olson, who started, and Diego Moreno, who got the win in relief, combined  for seven shutout innings. OF Ben Gamel had three hits, a HR short of the cycle. Aaron Judge 2 h, double, rbi. 2B Donovan Solano 3 H, rbi.  OF Cesar Puello a 3-run HR.

AA: Trenton won 5-3. CF Dustin Fowler 2 h, rbi. Dante Bichette, Jr. 3 hits.

Low A:  Charleston made it a perfect night for the farm teams, winning 4-0. Brody Koerner 7 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 9 K. Solo HR Trey Amburgey. Jhalen Jackson 3 H, 2 doubles, rbi. Kyle Holder 2 h, rbi.  2 hits Thairo Estrada.
