The Yanks were off today, but did pick up a half a game over Tampa Bay because of the Rays loss to the Angels. In that game, Albert Pujols passed Mickey Mantle on the all-time HR list, hitting #537. The Yanks now have a 2-game lead in the AL East.

The Yanks brought up Mason “Classical Gas” Williams up from AAA. How I hope they play that song for his walk up. It’d be perfect, right? Williams, 23, between AA/AAA this year, was at .318-0-22 with 13 sb. Good speed, CF, lefty hitter, no power, good defense. He’ll enable Gardner to go back to LF and be there until Ellsbury is ready. Last year, Williams hit just .223 at AA with 21 SB. While he is up, the Yanks hope he plays good D, and gets the occasional hit and SB.

So in the past few days, (and LoHud had a nice chart)…

Ryan replaces Pirela as backup IF. Ryan better D, and the vet. Pirela maybe the better hitter, but Ryan earns the bigger $$$.

Williams replaces Flores in the OF.

By necessity, because of Miller’s DL stint, Chris Martin (fresh off rehab) replaces him.

I think Miller returns after the ASG.

In a few weeks, Ellsbury and Nova should be ready. Ellsbury replaces Williams. As for Nova, that’s a more difficult call. Do you send Lindgren down? Does Nova go into the rotation with Warren to the bullpen (appears that way)? Does Nova go into the bullpen? Does Lindgren stay and say, the Yanks DFA Rogers or Capuano?

In addition the Yanks traded David Carpenter to Washington for a minor league second baseman, Tony Renda, who will probably go to AA.  Renda, a righty hitter, is 24 and was hitting .267-1-23 with 13 SB at AA Harrisburg.

Now for the minors.

AAA: 9-2 win for SWB.  Kyle Davies (5-3, 4.03) 2 R in 6 1/3. 1B Kyle Roller 2 h, 3 rbi. 3B Cole Figueroa 3 h, 2 doubles, rbi.

AA: Trenton won 6-0 on a combined one-hitter. Sergio Santos, just acquired, pitched a scoreless inning with 2 K. C Gary Sanchez (injured bruised hand) left the game in the 2nd and his replacement, Francisco Arcia, homered. Judge, Bird, Jagielo and Arcia all w/2h and an RBI.

High A: Regular game: Tampa lost 3-1. Gregorio Petit, on rehab, 1 for 2 w/a walk.

Makeup of 6/10 rainout: 4-3 loss. SS Tyler Wade, C Kyle Higashioka and LF Ericson Leonora all with 2 hits each.

A: 4-3 win for Charleston.  CF Dustin Fowler 2 h, HR , 2 RBI.

Sorry about no minor league post for the games on Saturday. Sometimes you just get too busy to do everything.

Anyway, regarding Sunday’s minor league action:

AAA: SWB had a 3-1 lead after 7 1/2 but gave up a run in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to lose 4-3. It wasted an excellent outing by Jose De Paula (7 IP, 1 R, 2 hits). CF Mason (Classical Gas) Williams with 3 hits. 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI for 2B Rob Refsnyder.

AA: C Gary Sanchez had a 3-run HR yesterday, and 1B Greg Bird, just off the DL, had a nice game also, 2 h, 2 RBI. Today, Trenton won 5-2. Solo HR SS Cito Culver. 2 H, 2 RBI RF Aaron Judge.

High A:   Tampa off.

A: Charleston lost 5-2. Jordan Foley with a rough outing, because he didn’t get anyone out. The starter gave up all 5 runs on 2 hits and 4 walks. Joey Maher relieved him and threw six no-hit innings. 3B Ryan Lindemuth, 2 doubles.

The minors.
