Yankee Stadium Frieze

Already, the DP combo the Yanks have at Tampa now, with the newly acquired Torres at SS and Mateo at 2B, is being discussed and regarded highly.

One scout thinks Torres is the Yanks’ SS of the future (with Didi being a super-utility guy or traded) with Mateo the 2B (he didn’t speak of Castro). We’ll see what the future holds. There could be a whole new infield, what with the now injured Greg Bird at 1B and with Miguel Andujar opening eyes at 3B for Trenton.

Another writeup mentioned Chance Adams, RHP at Trenton, as being the best unknown jewel in the minors. Hopefully some of these kids really make it and produce for the Yanks in a few years.

OF Jake Skole was released to make room for Torres.

AAA: SWB swept a DH to go to 66-38.

Regularly scheduled game: 3-2 win. Just promoted Vincente Campos 1 R in 5 IP.  Gary Sanchez 2 doubles.

Makeup of 7/25 rainout: SWB won 3-0 in 7 innings.  Luis Cessa CG 4-hit shutout.2 hits Mason Williams, 2 hits and an RBI for Sanchez, 2 RBI Donovan Solano, 2 hits Pete Kozma.

AA: Trenton (63-40) won 15-4. The aforementioned Adams was off, 3 R in 5 1/3, but in 20 starts this year between Tampa and Trenton, is 11-0,  2.53. For his minor league career, the soon-to-be-22-year-old is 14-1, 2.34. Mark Payton 2 hits, HR, 3 RBI. 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI Dante Bichette, Jr. 2 hits, 4 RBI Cito Culver. Lane Adams 3 for 3 with 2 walks.  Mike Ford 3 hits. Kyle Higashioka 2 rbi. Tyler Wade 3 hits. Dustin Fowler 2 RBI. A great night offensively, all around.

AAA: Apparently Chad Green has to learn how to pitch in the majors. With the Yanks, he’s made 3 MLB starts. His first one wasn’t good. He was good in the second one, and he gave up 4 HR, 3 in the first inning, in the last one.

Tonight, for SWB, he was brilliant. 8 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks, and 8 K. He needs to bring that into the majors. At AAA, he is 8-7, 1.41. But he has to bring that into the majors.

1B Ike Davis 2 hits, HR, both RBI. OF Ben Gamel and 3B Pete Kozma 2 hits each.

AA:   Trenton lost 4-2. They got two in the first, but nothing thereafter and only managed 3 hits. 3B Miguel Andujar a 2-run HR.

High A: Tampa won 13-6. Solo HR OF Jake Skole. 1B Kevin Cornelius 3 hits, 2 doubles, 3 rbi. 3B Vicente Conde 3 hits, 2 doubles, 3 RBI. DH Connor Spencer 2 hits, 2 rbi.

Low A: 2-0 win for Charleston. Christian Morris 6 2/3  IP 3 B Mandy Alvarez got 2 hits and  an RBI. He has gotten a hit in all 22 minor league games he has played in so far.

AAA: SWB won 5-1. Diego Moreno five scoreless IP of relief. OF Ben Gamel 2 hits, rbi. Same with C Gary Sanchez. 2 hits Cesar Puello.

AA: Trenton won 5-2. Jordan Montgomery 5 1/3 scoreless IP. SS Tyler Wade (HR shy of cycle), OF Dustin Fowler (2 RBI) and OF Mark Payton (2 doubles, rbi) 3 hits each.C  Kyle Higashioka 2 hits, rbi.

Low A: Charleston lost 2-1. 3B Angel Aguilar and C Austin Afenir 2 hits each. RBI for Afenir.

I don’t go to lower levels, like short-season leagues or anything, but the Yanks do have a highly touted 20 year old catching prospect, Luis Torrens, at Staten Island in the NY-Penn short-season league.

The Minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB won 2-1. Keep an eye on Dietrich Enns. 6 2/3 scoreless innings. With some Yankee starters struggling…. Enns is a 25 yr. old lefty. He is 9-3, 1.73 this year between AA and AAA. He is 20-12, 1.87 in his minor league career. Solo HR Ben Gamel. Double and RBI Gary Sanchez. 2 hits Donovan Solano.
