Minor League Report. Cabrera, Vidal, star for Low A Charleston.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Justus Sheffield will be a Yankees representative in the Futures game next week.

As far as the festivities in our nation’s capital, where the All-Star Game will be (and I believe, first time since 1969?) I’d like to see something just for fun.

The HR derby, meh. But that Presidents race? That is funny.

Why not combine the two? Bring a temporary fence in, about 250 feet from the plate, and let those characters (Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, T.R., and Taft) swing, in costume, to see which President wins the HR derby! Wouldn’t that be funny and entertaining?

Now for the minor league report.

Minor League Report. Not a good rehab for Cole. Move forthcoming?

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

After the Yanks’ loss to the Phils last night, Luis Cessa was sent down to AAA. No corresponding move has been made yet. With the Yanks facing three lefties this weekend against Boston (Rodriguez, Sale & Price) could they be bringing up either Tyler Austin or Brandon Drury? Especially with the struggles Bird and Walker have been having at 1B?

The Yanks now are 1/2 game behind Boston, but have the same winning percentage. They are 52-26, Boston 54-27. Meaning that in making up three games, the Yanks have to go 2-1 in them to be in a tie with Boston.

Wednesday’s minor league results:

AAA: A.J. Cole’s rehab assignment didn’t go well as SWB (37-39) lost 4-2 to Lehigh Valley. 1B Drury and DH Billy McKinney homered for SWB. Each had 2 hits. RF/LF Zack Zehner also had two hits, and those six hits were all of SWB’s hits. Cole didn’t get anyone out as he was on rehab, on the DL due to a pinched nerve in his neck. Nice relief job by Justus Sheffield.

Cole (L, 0-1, infinity) 0 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 2 W, 0 K.
Feyereisen 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.  1.69
Sheffield 6 IP, 0 R, 6 H, 1 W, 3 K.  2.82
Espinal 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K.  2.70

Drury and Cody Carroll were named to the AAA All-Star team.

AA: Trenton (44-33) won 8-5. 2 hits, HR, 4 RBI for 1B Ryan McBroom (AA/AAA this year, .304-10-39, 11 W, 71 K, 26 y.o.; Bats R). SS Abiatal Avelino 4 for 4. (AA/AAA .314-11-42; 23, Righty batter—-trade bait as the Yanks look to improve at the deadline?) RF Jeff Hendrix 2 RBI.

Keller (W, 6-5, 4.14)  5 IP, 3 R, 7 H, 1 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Frare (H, 3) 2 1/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 W, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR. 0.76 (lefty .. watch out Shreve?)
Tarpley (S, 2) 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 3 K.   1.26

High A: Tampa (39-37) lost 8-5. 2B Hoy Jun Park 3 hits, HR, 2 RBI. CF Rashad Crawford 3 hits, 2 RBI. 1B Brandon Wagner 2 hits. C Donny Sands 2 hits.

Minor League Report.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (35-37) lost 3-1. CF Tyler Wade 2 of their 4 hits. Guess the lack of run support affected Justus Sheffield last night as well as CC. Sheffield gave up a 3-run HR with two out in the fifth.

Sheffield (L, 1-3, 3.26) 6 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 2 W, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Kahnle 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K. 3.12   Good to see.
Lail 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H,  0 W, 1 K.  4.63

AA: Trenton (41-31) lost 7-2. 3B Mandy Alvarez 3 hits, 2 doubles and a solo HR. SS Gosuke Katoh drew 3 walks, and 2B Billy Fleming had 2 hits.

Bollinger (L, 3-3, 6.45) 4 IP, 7 R, 9 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Ort 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 4 W, 1 K. 1.71
Reeves 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 5 K.  1.60

High A: Tampa (36-36) lost 5-4 in 11. SS Kyle Holder HR, 2 RBI. LF Ben Ruta solo HR. RF Cesar Diaz 3 hits. C Donny Sands 3 hits.

Nick Green 5 2/3 IP, 3 R, 1 ER, 4 H, 3 W, 6 K. 2.20
Trieglaff 2 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 1.84
Wivinis 2 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.  2.12
Schwaab (L, 0-3, 2.84) 1 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K.

If you are wondering about the unearned runs given up by Wivinis and Schwaab, it’s because of that stupid rule to speed up minor league games that once you get to extra innings, that the inning starts with a runner on second. Terrible.

Low A: Charleston (35-35) won 10-4. CF Pablo Olivares 3 hits, 2 HR, 5 RBI. SS Oswaldo Cabrera solo HR. PH/RF Leonardo Molina 2 hits, solo HR. 1B Chris Hess 2 hits, solo HR. LF Matt McPhearson 2 doubles, RBI.

Yajure (W, 2-0, 1.93) 5 IP, 4 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 1 W, 4 K. Gave up 1 HR, a two-out grand slam.
Orozco (S, 1) 4 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.  3.64

After last night’s Yankees’ game, Tyler Austin was sent down to make room for tonight’s starter, Jonathan Loaisiga.

AAA: SWB (31-34) won 9-5 in 10 innings. SS Tyler Wade 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI. Wade is finally starting to hit after a rough start to the season (the flu didn’t help). He’s up to .260 now. 3B Brandon Drury 2 hits, double, HR, 3 RBI. .328. 2 hits, RBI 1B Ryan McBroom. C Kyle Higashioka 2 hits, both doubles, RBI.

Low A: Charleston (32-33) won 2-1 on a combined one-hitter. DH Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits, RBI.

Yajure (W, 1-0, 3.00) 5 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 W, 9 K.
Vargas (S, 1) 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K. 4.91

ICYMI-Boston won their late game in Seattle, 2-1, so the Yanks are 44-20, Boston 48-22. Some places show Boston in 1st place with the Yanks 1 game back, but actually MLB and the Elias sports bureau goes by winning percentage, and there, the Yanks are in first place, .688 to .686. This funky scenario may stay this way until the Yanks are able to make up those six games less that they haven’t played compared to Boston. Put it this way—if the Yanks go 4-2 in those six games they need to make up, then the two teams are tied.
