Arizona Fall League: Torres, Andujar continue to hit.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Yankees’ prospects Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar continue to hit in the Arizona Fall League.

Scottsdale lost 4-3 on Friday, but most of their offense revolved around these two.

Torres, who played 2B (he’s been switching between SS and 2B) was 2 for 4 and scored a run. So far, he’s hitting .429 and is probably the youngest player in the league at 19.He doesn’t turn 20 until December 13.The Yanks got him from the Cubs in the Chapman deal.

3B Andujar was 3 for 3 with a walk and drove in 2 runs. He did make an error. He’s hitting .391.

Tyler Wade, a SS getting OF reps to make him more versatile (especially with Torres and Jorge Mateo in the system) went 0 for 3, struck out once, but drew two walks and scored twice. He’s been struggling at .071.

Pitcher J.P. Feyereisen pitched one scoreless inning, giving up no hits or walks, and struck out one. His ERA so far down there is 7.20.

Scottsdale is 3-7.

Arizona Fall League. 2 hits for Torres.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Scottsdale lost 2-1. Here is how Yankees’ prospects did:

CF Tyler Wade. 1 for 3. Scored a run, drew a walk.

SS Gleyber Torres 2 for 3, RBI, drew a walk, caught stealing.

Dh Greg Bird 0 for 4.

P Dillon Tate 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks, 1 K.

Arizona Fall League: Torres provides walk-off hit.

Gleyber Torres, at 19, may be one of, if not THE youngest player in the Arizona Fall League this year, but he made his presence known with a walk-off single last night in Scottsdale’s 8-7 win.

Torres, normally a SS, played 2B last night.

It was a mixed night for Yankees’ prospects. Some of, but not all of the hitters did well. The pitchers did not.

Torres: 2 for 4. Scored 2 Runs. Single and Double. Walkoff single for his RBI. Also walked.
Tyler Wade: SS getting OF time. CF. 0 for 5, struck out 3x
Greg Bird: DH. 1 for 5. Another double.
Miguel Andujar. 3B. 1 for 4. single.

Dillon Tate: 1 IP of relief. 3 R, 4 H, 0 walks, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.
J.P. Feyereisen: 1 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 3 walks, 0 K. Blew the save, got the win thanks to Torres.

I’ve read reports on Torres and pitcher James Kaprielian that are very favorable. Be patient, Yankees fans.

Arizona Fall League: Good night for some Yankees’ prospects.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

James Kaprielian was dominating, and Gleyber Torres homered in the Scottsdale Scorpions 6-4 loss last night in the Arizona Fall League. Here’s how the Yankees’ prospects on that team did:

A good night for some. Others, not so much.

James Kaprielian 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks, 6 K.
Brody Koerner 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 3 walks, 0 K.

2b Tyler Wade 0 for 3, scored a run, walked, made an error.
SS Gleyber Torres 1 for 4, solo HR, struck out twice.
DH Greg Bird 2 for 4, scored a run, 2 doubles, 1 RBI.
3B Miguel Andujar 2 for 4, scored a run.

Bird, coming back from a shoulder injury, isn’t cleared to throw hard enough to play 1B yet.

You may recall that Gary Sanchez was in the AFL last year, and did well. In 22 games last year, he hit .295-7-21.

Game 132. Yanks win in 13, make some deals.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks beat KC in 13 Wednesday night, and were busy making deals.

There is a lot of news here, including some passings, so bear with me.

Ben Gamel, just named International League MVP, was dealt to Seattle for two minor league pitchers, 18 year old Juan De Paula and 19 year old Jio Orozco, both righties. Gamel was 1 for 8 for the Yanks this year, and the 24 yr. old OF was .308-6-51 with 19 SB at SWB. De Paula has been down in the rookie leagues, and in 25 games in the minors, is 6-6, 2.58 with 121 K in 118 2/3 IP. Orozco, in 20 minor league games, is 5-3, 3.73 with 87 K in 70 IP. Both are young and a long way away, so we’ll see.

The Yanks sent cash to the Brewers for OF Eric Young. Young, 31, has played for Colorado, the Mets and Braves in his career. He led the NL in SB in 2013 with 46. He can play all 3 OF positions and 2B.  His 162 g. average is .247-2-26 with 42 SB and an OPS+ of 74. It appears he will be used as a pinch-runner in September with the expanded rosters. Young could get more playing time than expected, since Aaron Hicks left last night’s game with a hamstring strain.

The Yanks also announced that Greg Bird, Tyler Wade, Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar and Brody Koerner to the Arizona Fall League.Three others are to be announced. For Bird, a good sign that he is coming along and to get him a few at bats this year as he rehabs from that shoulder surgery.

Now for the game. The Yanks came back from a 4-0 deficit to win 5-4 in 13 innings. They are now 69-63, in fourth place in the AL East, 6 1/2 out, but now only 2 1/2 out of the final wild card spot and have to jump three teams.

Luis Cessa struggled early, giving up two runs in the first inning, a run in the second and another in the third. Kendrys Morales hit a 2-run HR off him in the first, and Eric Hosmer a solo shot in the third.

The Yanks got three in the sixth to get back in the game. Ellsbury singled, went to second on a walk to Sanchez and to third on a fly ball by Teixeira. After Gregorius’ SF brought in one run, Castro hit a 2-run HR (19) to cut it to 4-3.

The Yanks tied it in the seventh. With one out, Hicks walked, Gardner singled him to third and Ellsbury tied the game with a SF.

In the 13th, Gregorius singled, was doubled to third by Castro and scored on a SF by McCann.

Ben Heller got his first MLB win.

The Yankees bullpen pitched seven no-hit, shutout innings. Combined with Cessa’s last three innings, the Yanks shut out KC for the last 10 innings of the game.

Cessa 6 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 walk, 2 K. 4.17. Gave up 2 HR.
Shreve 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk, 3 K. 4.85.
Layne 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 3.38 (Bos/NYY)
Warren 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 5.22 (Cubs/NYY)
Parker 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 wlk, 1 K. 3.60 (Sea/NYY)
Heller (W, 1-0) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 6.00
Betances (S, 7) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk, 0 K. 2.12.

Juan Bell, brother of 1987 AL MVP George Bell, and an infielder in the early 1990s for the Orioles and Phillies, along with the Brewers, Expos and Red Sox, passed away at the age of 48. He was a .212 hitter, OPS+ 60, from 1989-1995.

Joe DeMaestri has passed away at the age of 87. The SS was best known as the SS for the Philadelphia and KC A’s from 1953-1959. Before that he played for the White Sox and Browns. He ended his career by playing for the 1960 and 1961 Yankees. A .236 hitter, OPS+ 62, he made the 1957 All-Star team.

The Minors.

Dietrich Enns at AAA, and Chance Adams at AA, both of whom have been exceptional this year, have been moved to the bullpen and basically shut down due to innings limits.

AAA: SWB won 4-0. Combined 3-hitter. Nestor Cortes 5 2/3 IP, no hits. Luis Severino 2 1/3 IP, 5 K. Enns 1 IP. Donovan Solano 2 hits, 2 RBI. 2 hits, RBI for both Mason Williams and Rob Refsnyder.

SWB’s Magic # for clinching the division is 3.

Earlier in the day, OF Ben Gamel was named International League MVP.

AA: Trenton won 6-4. Mark Payton 2-run HR. 2 hits Miguel Andujar, 2 RBI Tyler Wade. 2 hits, rbi for Abiatal Avelino. Trenton stays 1 1/2 back of Reading for the division, and have already clinched a wild card spot.

High A: Tampa had already won the first-half title. They were scoreless in the second inning when rain suspended the game. It should be completed today.

Low A: Charleston had already won the first-half title. they lost 2-0, getting just 3 hits.
