The Minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB swept a DH. In the regularly scheduled game, they won 6-4. 2 RBI Slade Heathcott.

In a makeup of an April 9 rainout, they won that one 10-2. Eddy Rodriguez HR’d, and Heathcott had 2 RBI in this one, too.

The Yanks are struggling right now, but so are some of their prized prospects, so a callup or shakeup probably isn’t in the picture right now. As for Swisher, he isn’t considered an OF anymore, just 1B/DH.

Gamel .311, Judge .280,  Sanchez .239, Refsnyder .216. Heathcott .231.

AA:   Trenton won 8-4. 3 h, 2 RBI CF Dustin Fowler. 2 H, 2 RBI 1B Tyler Austin. Matt Wotherspoon 4 no-hit innings of relief, 8 K.

High A: Tampa off.

Low A: Charleston won 5-0. 1B Chris Giftens solo HR.

The minors. Kaprielian shut down.

From the NY Daily News:

Yankees top prospect James Kaprielian has been shut down after an MRI revealed inflammation—but no ligament tear—in his pitching elbow. There were some who felt Kaprielian, at High A Tampa, might even hit the Bronx this year. Those plans have been pushed back.

Brandon Pinder will undergo Tommy John surgery, joining Nick Rumbelow as relievers lost for the year due to that.

The Yanks signed Phil Coke to a minor league deal. Coke was with the Yanks in 2009 when they won the WS. He was 0-0, 5.68 in 18 games for the Cubs and Blue Jays last year. For his career, 22-27, 4.20, ERA+ 100. 8 saves. A 162 g. average of 4-4, 4.20.

In 26 postseason games, Coke (soon to be 34) is 0-1, 4.26, 3 saves.

Not only did the Yanks lose last night, but all their affiliates did too.
