cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (40-28) won 8-4. Rehabbing RF Aaron Judge 1 for 2, solo HR, 2 walks, strikeout.  It’ll be a tough decision who goes when Judge returns soon.

1B Mike Ford (.320-16-38) solo HR. CF Mike Tauchman 3-run HR. C Kyle Higashioka solo HR). (Ford, Tauchman and Higashioka all homered in the first inning, Tauchman and Higashioka going back-to-back). SS Tyler Wade 2 hits. 2B Thairo Estrada 2 hits.

As mentioned in the other post, with Voit, Encarnacion, Ford here, and Gittens (AA), Greg Bird is finding himself squeezed out. Heck, former major leaguer Logan Morrison, here at AAA SWB, HIMSELF is squeezed out.

Randall Delgado 3 R in 6 IP for the win.

AA: Trenton (38-27) won 6-0 on a 2-hit shutout. Wait until you see the numbers Deivi Garcia put up. 1B Chis Gittens (see mention above) 2 hits, 2 RBI. C Kellin Deglan 2 hits. CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI.

Ok, ready for the numbers for the 20 year old Garcia, who the Yanks are VERY HIGH on?

Garcia (W, 3-2, 3.00) 6 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 15 K.  

Wow.

Combined with 3 relievers, Trenton struck out 19.

High A: Tampa (29-39 overall) split. They lost the completion of Monday’s suspended game, 6-4 in 10 innings. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits. 1B Dermis Garcia 3 hits, RBI.

They won the regularly scheduled game, 6-5, getting six in the top of the seventh and last inning (if DH, minors go only 7 innings). DH Florial 2 RBI. 1B Garcia 2 hits, 2 RBI. CF Pablo Olivares 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston off, because the South Atlantic League had their all-star game. Charleston’s Division, the South, lost 6-2.

Charleston players: PH/LF Brandon Lockridge 1 for 2, 2 -run PH HR for the South’s only runs.

PH/DH Mickey Gasper 0 for 2.  LF Canaan Smith 1 for 2.

Not a good night for one of the pitchers.

P Alexander Vizcaino (L, BS, 1) 1/3 IP, 5 R, 3 H, 1 W, 1 K.

Minor League Report. Gio rebounds nicely.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (3-3) wins 5-1 over Lehigh Valley. Gio Gonzalez, who after the Yanks had signed him to a minor league deal, gave up 13 R, 12 ER in six innings in his first two appearances (one spring training and one AAA game) , put it together last night, pitching six shutout innings, giving up just 3 hits, and striking out 10. He walked one.

DH Mike Ford and SS Thairo Estrada each had 2 hits and an RBI. CF Billy Burns 2 hits.

With Luis Severino shut down, and, it appears, out until late June/early July, Gonzalez could now become an option for the Yankees’ rotation, or even the bullpen.

Another option could be signing free agent Dallas Keuchel.

But both options as far as the rotation goes, would most likely affect Domingo German, who so far, has pitched very well. As far as the bullpen, it most likely would affect Stephen Tarpley.

AA: Trenton (3-2) won 7-2. 2B Wendell Rijo 2-run HR. SS Hoy Jun Park solo HR. DH Rashad Crawford 2 hits. 3B Angel Aguilar 2 hits, 2 RBI. Three bullpen pitchers 5 IP, 0 R, 1 H.

High A: Tampa (2-4) lost 9-8. DH Matt Pita 3 hits, 4 RBI. 1B Dermis Garcia 2 RBI. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. Starter Rony Garcia 5 IP, 1 R, 7 K. End of game bullpen meltdown.

Low A: Charleston (3-3) lost both games of a DH, 17-3, then 8-3.

Game 1: CF Josh Stowers 2 hits. 2B Kyle Gray a 3-run HR.
Luis Medina 2 IP, 10 R, 10 H, 4 W, 3 K. Gave up 3 HR
Rodney Hutchinson 3 2/3 IP, 7 R, 3 H, 4 W, 3 K. Also gave up 3 HR.

Game 2: Got just four hits.
Alex Vizcaino 4 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 W, 7 K
Aaron McGarity (L) 1 1/3 IP, 6 R, 7 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.

The Viz gets a 50 game suspension

The Yanks signed Luis Vizcaino to a minor league contract this offseason, but released him back in February after he blew out his Achilles late in Winter Ball. The Viz didn’t pitch in the majors in 2010.

Apparently the Viz wanted to get back to the majors in the worst way.

The Lower Hudson Journal reports:

Former Yankees reliever Luis Vizcaino has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
