AAA: For a 20 yr. old, jumping from High A to AAA in one year is impressive. It may be a bit much to go from High A all the way to the majors. Deivi Garcia had a rough first inning for SWB, giving up 4 runs, as SWB (62-47) lost 6-1. LF Clint Frazier 2 hits, 2B Wendell Rijo 2 hits. In the first inning, Garcia gave up a double, walk, got a strikeout, then a double drove in two, then a strikeout, then a 2-run HR.
He may need a full year at AAA. At 20, we can’t rush him.
Garcia (AAA stats 1-2, 6.63) 5 IP, 6 R, 8 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up 2 HR.
AA: Trenton (57-50) won 7-2. SS Kyle Holder 3 hits, RBI. LF Ben Ruta 2 hits, RBI. 2B Hoy Jun Park 2 hits, RBI. 1B Chris Gittens 2 hits, RBI. C Kellin Deglan 2 hits, RBI. CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI on a solo HR. Nice team effort.

Update: From MLB Trade Rumors:
The Yankees were willing to give up Clint Frazier and another prospect for Ray, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweets, though talks fizzled out after the Diamondbacks requested more prospects. As per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the D’Backs wanted a four-prospect package that included Frazier and right-hander Clarke Schmidt, who was the 16th overall pick of the 2017 draft and rated by MLB Pipeline as the fifth-best prospect in New York’s system.
