cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (65-59) continues to slump, blowing leads in both the 10th and 11th innings to lose 8-7. They scored in the top of the tenth only to give it back in the bottom of the inning. They then scored twice in the top of the eleventh only to give back three.

DH Clint Frazier 2 hits, RBI. 39-year-old C Erik Kratz 2 HR, 3 RBI. 1B Ryan McBroom 2-run HR in the 11th. 3B Mandy Alvarez 2 hits.

Ben Heller back off of IL. Opener. 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.  0.00 for AAA.

Deivi Garcia replaced him 5 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 5 W, 7 K.  5.01 at AAA.

Garcia’s total numbers this season (A+/AA/AAA): 5-9, 4.08 but 154 K in 102 2/3 IP (13.5 K/9). 51 walks. Get the walks down a little.  (4.47/9).

Not doing well were recently acquired David Hernandez (2/3 IP, 3 R) and Brady Lail, who recently made his MLB debut, then was DFA’d then reassigned to AAA. Lail lost the game, giving up 3 R, 2 ER, in 1/3 IP.

AA: Trenton (67-56) lost 7-1 to Reading, getting just 3 hits, 2 by RF Ben Ruta. C Brian Navaretto solo HR.

High A: Tampa (56-65) split two games.

Completion of suspended game from Friday: Won 6-1.  CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, solo HR. 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2-run HR for SS Diego Castillo. 1B Steven Sensley solo HR.  A 3-hitter with 16K.

Wivinis 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K.  2.91

Lost the regularly scheduled game, 5-3, giving up 2 in the bottom of the seventh (with the suspended game, the regular game is only 7 innings). CF Florial 2 hits. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits, 3 RBI, 3-run HR.

Low A: Charleston (64-61) gave up 2 in the bottom of the ninth and lost 6-5. SS Oswald Peraza 3 hits, RBI. Solo HR. LF Canaan Smith 2 hits (.309). DH Josh Breaux 2 RBI. RF Frederick Cuevas 3 hits.

Standings:

SWB has blown a big lead. Their lead in the IL North is down to one game over Buffalo, 2 over Syracuse, 3 over Rochester and 4 1/2 over Lehigh Valley. They have lost six in a row and 10 of their last 11.

Trenton won the first half Eastern League East with 38-28 record so they are guaranteed a playoff spot. They are in second, 4 back, at 29-28, in the second half.

Tampa is 28-27, 2 games out, in the second half. They finished the first half 28-38, 13 1/2 out and in fifth place in the FSL North.

Charleston is tied for 3rd, 27-28, 5 out in the SAL South. They were 3rd, 37-33, just a 1/2 game out, in the first half.

Minor League Report. Encouraging outing by Loaisiga.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (64-53) lost 10-2 but the biggest story of the game is that Jonathan Loaisiga pitched well.

Loaisiga no-decision 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.

Could he be used as an “opener” in the postseason? Or in another capacity?

As you may guess by the final score, after he left, things didn’t go well. Brody Koerner gave up 10 runs on 16 hits in 5 2/3 IP, inc. 3 HR. Ugh.

SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits. DH Ryan McBroom 2 RBI. CF Billy Burns 3 hits.

AA: Trenton (62-54) won 5-3. 1B Chris Gittens 3 hits, RBI. RF Isiah Gilliam 2-run HR. 3B Max Burt 2 hits.

High A: Tampa (52-62) lost 6-4. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. 2B Diego Castillo 2 hits. LF Leonardo Molina 2 hits, 2 RBI.

Starter Luis Gil 4 scoreless innings, no decision. 1-0, 4.85 at Tampa, but 5-5, 2.72 between Low A Charleston and High A Tampa this season in 20 starts. Gil, 21, RHP, has 123 K in 96 IP. Maybe three years away? But someone to keep an eye on.

Low A: Charleston (60-57) won 9-8. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. LF Canaan Smith 3 hits, 3 RBI, 2-run HR, .319. I am surprised he hasn’t been promoted to Tampa right now. (20, .319-9-61, lefty bat). 2B Eduardo Torrealba 2 RBI.

Minor League Report. Nice pitching tonight.

Minor League Report. Trenton’s Keller throws 7-inning no-hitter.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (62-48) lost 5-3. 3B Mandy Alvarez 2 hits. 2B Wendell Rijo 2 hits.

AA: Trenton (58-51) split a DH.

Regularly Scheduled Game: Brian Keller throws a 7-inning no-hitter. Only one walk kept it from being perfect. Trenton wins, 2-0. (DHs are 7 inning games in the minors).

CF Matt Lipka 2 for 2.

Keller (3-1, 2.32) 7 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 6 K.

Hardy (W, 1-0, 3.86) 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 3 K.

With Aaron Judge not pulling a ball for a HR this year, and with the struggles James Paxton has had, you wonder if the injuries that put them on the IL are still affecting them. That can go for other players as well, and is a concern regarding guys on the IL or even those not on the IL but day-to-day as far as how they will be when they come back (Stanton, Severino, Betances, Voit, Gardner, LeMahieu)…    just a thought.

The Yanks were off yesterday, but Tampa Bay beat Boston, so the Yanks (68-39) are 7 up on Tampa Bay (9 in the loss column) and 10 1/2 up on Boston (12 in the loss column). They have a 4-game series against Boston this weekend, with a day/night separate admission DH on Saturday.

Minor League Report. Deivi Garcia still adjusting to AAA.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

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.

Nick Green (W, 2-3. 7.91) 5 2/3 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 4 W, 6 K.

Trevor Lane (1.82) 2 scoreless relief innings, 3 K.

High A:  Tampa ppd. Scheduled to be madeup today, Aug. 1

Low A: Charleston (53-56) lost 8-6. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. LF Canaan Smith (.317) 3 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR. 3B Oliver Dunn 3 hits, RBI.

Luis Medina (no decision) 5 1/3 IP, 4 R, 4 H, 4 W, 10 K.  6.89

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.
