The Minors.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

SWB’s Manager suggests that an overlooked minor leaguer that could help the team is OF Ben Gamel. Perhaps if Gardner can be dealt for pitching help (offered, no takers), that may happen.

AAA: SWB won 10-4. Gamel had 2 hits, 2 RBI. Severino shaky, 5 2/3 IP, 4 runs. Apparently the Yanks want him to concentrate on his changeup right now and aren’t too concerned with results as long as he throws and perfects the change. Severino, however, should just keep his mouth shut. He stated that he could just work on things in the majors instead of being demoted. Not with an ERA over 7.00 you won’t. Time to shut the Yap, Luis, and do what they tell you. You should be a bit more humble with that MLB ERA over 7.00 this year. Mason Williams 3 hits, RBI (another candidate for OF spot if Gardner dealt) . Donovan Solano 3 hits. Refsnyder 2 hits, RBI. Frazier 2 hits. Jake Cave 3 hits, 2 RBI.

AA: Trenton won 4-1. Chance Adams only went 4 1/3 (Innings limit?)   1 R, 3 H, 2 walks and 10 K.  Wondering why pulled after 10 of 13 outs recorded were by strikeout.  2 hits, RBI Dustin Fowler.

High A:   Tampa won 3-0 on a 2-hitter. Yefrey Ramirez 8 IP, 1 hit, 0 walks, 8 K. Connor Spencer 2 hits and an RBI.

Low A: Charleston won 4-1. Daris Vargas 6 shutout IP.

AA: 2-0 win for Trenton. Ron Herrera 7 IP, 4 H, 8 K. Miguel Andujar and Mark Payton 2 hits each.
