Minor league action, May 3, 2022

AAA: SWB started the season 3-0, but have slipped to 9-15. Checking the batting averages, no one is hitting, even former major leaguers like Greg Bird, Ron Guzman, or Ryan Lamarre. They lost 2-0 last night, getting just five hits. #2 prospect Oswald Peraza is hitting just .203, and so is #14 prospect Oswaldo Cabrera. And other prospects at lower levels (#1 prospect Anthony Volpe and #3 prospect Jasson Dominguez, for example) are also struggling.

S.T. Game 1. Yanks lose, trade Voit. Place German on IL.

The Yanks had their first spring training game today, which they lost to the Pirates, 4-3, but first a couple of transactions.

P Domingo German was placed on the 60 day IL because of shoulder soreness.

Luke Voit was traded to San Diego for a 20 year old pitching prospect, Justin Lange. Lange is a former first round pick who has just 9 minor league games under his belt, but who apparenlty hit 102 MPH while in his senior year of high school. A project. One bit of trivia: Lange was born on 9/11/01.

In the game, newcomer SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa had 2 hits and minor league C Rodolfo Duran hit a HR.

Pitching:

Wesneski 3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 4 K. Gave up HR. A top pitching prospect.
Bristo (L, BS) 1 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 1 W, 4 K. Gave up HR.
Milam 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K.

Spence 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.

Of note: Greg Allen, who was with the Yanks for 15 games last year, hit a 2-run HR in the game for Pittsburgh.

The Yanks placed 4 minor leaguers on the top 100 prospect list. #8 SS Anthony Volpe, #60 SS Oswald Peraza, #61 OF Jasson Dominguez, and #96 C Austin Wells.


Dunham named to All-Arizona Fall League Team

From mlb.com. Yankees’ #24 ranked prospect, OF Elijah Dunham, named to All-Arizona Fall League Team.

OF: Elijah Dunham, Surprise (NYY No. 24)
The Yankees signed Dunham as a nondrafted free agent out of Indiana following the shortened 2020 Draft. This fall, he certainly looked like someone who should have gone in those five rounds. Dunham led the AFL with 11 stolen bases (in 12 attempts). In fact, he was one of only two players with at least 10 extra-base hits and five steals. Stott was the other. Dunham got it done at the plate with a .357/.465/.571 line, two homers, three triples and six doubles in 23 games. (14 RBI). He walked more times (14) than he struck out (10) over 101 plate appearances.

Dunham plays LF and 1B, and is a lefty hitter. He played 93 games between Low and High A this year, hitting .263-13-57 with 28 SB.

Other Yankees prospects in the AFL (Their team, Surprise Sagueros, won their division but lost the Championship game 6-0 to Mesa):

Austin Wells, C, #5 prospect: .344-2-18 in 18 games.
1B Andres Chaparro .275-3-15 in 20 games.

P Clay Aguilar 1-1, 10.24 6 G, 1 start
P Harold Cortijo 0-0, 5.00 8 G
P Zach Greene 0-1, 4.91 8 G
