Minor League Report. When will they call Chance Adams up? (Great again). Littell & Perez dominate again, too.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

This will be my last report for a while. I will be on vacation, visiting family on the other side of the country for a little over a week. Please bear with me until my return.

I haven’t seen a niece or nephew in 8 years. Or a sister in two years.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

AAA: SWB (44-28) won 11–1.  Chance Adams was once again, awesome. When does he join the rotation? Not only that, when does Austin replace Carter at 1B?

Check the numbers.

Austin DH: 2 Hits, double, HR, 4 RBI.
If you don’t want him to replace Carter, how about 1B Ji-Man Choi? HR, 2 RBI.
RF Jake Cave 2 hits, solo HR.
LF Mark Payton 3 Hits, rbi.
2B Cito Culver 2 hits, double, HR, 2 RBI.

Adams (W, 5-2, 2.12) 6 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 8 K.
Heller 1 1/3 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1 W, 3 K. 2.67. Gave up 1 HR.
Graham 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K. 3.57.

Between AA and AAA this year, Adams is 9-2, 1.65 in 14 starts. How long before he is brought up?

AA: Trenton rained out.

High A: Tampa (40-31) won 6-1 in a rained shortened game.  2B Nick Solak (.315) 2 hits, 2 RBI. SS Kyle Holder 2 hits, 2 RBI.

2B Joy Hun Park 3 hits.
LF Blake Rutherford 2 hits.
CF Estevan Florial 3 hits, 1 HR shy of cycle, RBI.

Minor League Report.

I think I read where Jacoby Ellsbury was cleared to resume BP on Wednesday. If so, and all went ok, he should be starting rehab games soon. It does look like he would be one expensive fourth OF, though. It appears Aaron Hicks has taken his job.

AAA: SWB (43-28) lost 5-2. 1B Tyler Austin 2-run HR. You wonder if he’ll be called up to replace the struggling Chris Carter soon. Girardi didn’t exactly give Carter much of a ringing endorsement the other night. CF Dustin Fowler and 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits each.

Acevedo (L, 1-1, 4.38) 5 1/3 IP, 5 R, 9 H, 3 W, 4 K.

Minor League Report. Torres needs TJ surgery, done for year.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Yankees’ top prospect, INF Gleyber Torres, needs TJ surgery and is done for the year. He injured his non-throwing elbow sliding into home the other day and hyperextended the elbow, injuring ligaments as well.

The Yanks were possibly grooming Torres to take over at 3B for Chase Headley later this year. They also now have promoted 3B Miguel Andujar to AAA. Andujar is an option for the future at 3B, also the Yanks may look at the trade deadline for a 3B. They aren’t happy with Headley’s performance so far.

Besides 3B, the Yanks may also look to upgrade at starting pitching and 1B. With CC out until early August and Tanaka struggling, an upgrade in the rotation, via Chance Adams being called up,Fo or a trade, looks imminent.

Also, 1B has been a problem with Greg Bird hurt and shut down, and the disappointing performance of Chris Carter. Here, the Yanks could look at a promotion (Tyler Austin, Mike Ford, Ji-Man Choi) or look to trade.

These are three positions that bear watching over the next month. How do the Yanks upgrade here? Is there a big deal brewing?

AAA: SWB (42-26) won 6-1. CF Dustin Fowler double, HR, 2 RBI. 3 hits, HR, 2 RBI LF Jake Cave. 3 hits, RBI 2B Donovan Solano. RF Clint Frazier 2 hits.

Minor League Report. Herrera continues to dominate AA.

header_1.jpg

AAA: SWB  (31-22) lost 2-0, and got just two hits. 3B Gleyber Torres is coming, but that may be a bit delayed, since Torres is hitting just .194 since his promotion to AAA eleven games ago. Remember, he is only 20. He was 0 for 3 with a walk and struck out twice. DH Tyler Austin, on rehab (which should be finishing soon) was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. SWB struck out 11x.

Cessa (L, 2-6, 4.42) 8 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 0 w, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Jones 1 Ip, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.30

Despite their good record, SWB is 5 GB of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Phillies affiliate) in their division, but sitting in a wild card position. Of course, it’s still early.

AA: Trenton (35-19, 1st place by 2.5 in their division) won 6-5, surviving a scare when they gave up 5 in the bottom of the 9th.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits, 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 1B Billy Fleming 3 hits, CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI, and 2 RBI for 2B Abiatal Avelino.
