SWB wins its opener, 5-0.

As usual, I’ll post about the minor leaguers so you can see who is hot and who is not among the prospects.

Most of the Yankees’ farm teams open up their seasons on Friday, but AAA SWB opened up tonight and beat Syracuse, 5-0.

SS Oswald Peraza, the Yankees #2 ranked prospect, hit a HR his first time up to give the Railriders a 1-0 lead. Later in the game, CF Estevan Florial, the #30 ranked prospect, hit a 3-run HR. C Max McDowell had 3 hits.

Starting P Matt Krook pitched 5 scoreless innings for the win. Reliever Greg Weissert got 5 of his 6 outs via strikeout.

Krook (W) 5 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 W, 7 K.
McClain (H) 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K. 1 WP.
Lane (H) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Weissert 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 5 K.

S.T. Game 8. Severino struggles again as Yanks lose to Phillies, 6-5.

A non-roster invitee (Ryan Weber) trying to make the team who gives up 3 runs to lose the game doesn’t bother me that much. Performances like that means he doesn’t make the team. He’s sent to the minors or released.

What does bother me is a member of your starting staff (Luis Severino) struggling greatly.

Such was the case as the Yankees (2-5-1 in spring training) lost to the Phillies, 6-5 on Friday afternoon.

Kyle Higashioka was 3 for 3 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI. Marwin Gonzalez (don’t be surprised if his versatility lets him make the team) had an RBI, as did minor leaguer Brandon Lockridge. D.J. LeMahieu had 2 hits and walked. Aaron Judge walked three times.

The Pitching line:

Severino 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 4 W, 0 K.
Coleman 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Weissert 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K.
Banuelos 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Weber (BS, L) 2 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 0 W, 3 K.

MLB network will have a documentary on Don Mattingly on April 3.

I saw a picture of the damage Yankees’ Low A Tampa manager Rachel Balkovec received. It’s nasty. Lucky she’s ok, but she will have a shiner for a while after being struck in the face from a batted ball.

S.T. Game 4. Yanks beat Phils 5-2.

The Yankees (1-2-1 in Spring Training) beat the Phillies 5-2 Monday afternoon.

Giancarlo Stanton drove in two runs with a double and Aaron Hicks had an RBI double of his own. Another run scored on an RBI double by Phillip Evans. Evans is a corner infielder/outfielder who was with Pittsburgh last year and who has been in the majors (121 games total) for the Mets (2017-2018) and Pirates (2020-2021).

Pitching line:

Taillon (W) 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K Nice. Had ankle surgery in the offseason.
Cortes (H) 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. Nasty Nestor.
