Minor League Report. Torres needs TJ surgery, done for year.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

Yankees’ top prospect, INF Gleyber Torres, needs TJ surgery and is done for the year. He injured his non-throwing elbow sliding into home the other day and hyperextended the elbow, injuring ligaments as well.

The Yanks were possibly grooming Torres to take over at 3B for Chase Headley later this year. They also now have promoted 3B Miguel Andujar to AAA. Andujar is an option for the future at 3B, also the Yanks may look at the trade deadline for a 3B. They aren’t happy with Headley’s performance so far.

Besides 3B, the Yanks may also look to upgrade at starting pitching and 1B. With CC out until early August and Tanaka struggling, an upgrade in the rotation, via Chance Adams being called up,Fo or a trade, looks imminent.

Also, 1B has been a problem with Greg Bird hurt and shut down, and the disappointing performance of Chris Carter. Here, the Yanks could look at a promotion (Tyler Austin, Mike Ford, Ji-Man Choi) or look to trade.

These are three positions that bear watching over the next month. How do the Yanks upgrade here? Is there a big deal brewing?

AA: Trenton (37-21) won 9-0. Amidst talk of the injured James Kaprielian, and of Chance Adams, and Justus Sheffield, Ronald Herrera has been overlooked, but look at his record.

1B Mike Ford 3-run HR. SS Thairo Estrada (.332) 3 hits, RBI. RF Billy McKinney 2 hits. DH Zack Zehner 2 RBI.

Herrera, a 22 yr. old righty, was ok, not great (10-8, 3.94 last year) but this year has really improved. Maybe a callup to AAA soon and we’ll see what he does there.

High A: Tampa (31-30) split a DH, both games 2-1.

Minor League Report. Herrera continues to dominate AA.

AAA: SWB  (31-22) lost 2-0, and got just two hits. 3B Gleyber Torres is coming, but that may be a bit delayed, since Torres is hitting just .194 since his promotion to AAA eleven games ago. Remember, he is only 20. He was 0 for 3 with a walk and struck out twice. DH Tyler Austin, on rehab (which should be finishing soon) was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. SWB struck out 11x.

Cessa (L, 2-6, 4.42) 8 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 0 w, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Jones 1 Ip, 0 r, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.30

Despite their good record, SWB is 5 GB of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Phillies affiliate) in their division, but sitting in a wild card position. Of course, it’s still early.

AA: Trenton (35-19, 1st place by 2.5 in their division) won 6-5, surviving a scare when they gave up 5 in the bottom of the 9th.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits, 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 1B Billy Fleming 3 hits, CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI, and 2 RBI for 2B Abiatal Avelino.

Ronald Herrera is another prospect having a great year and someone to keep an eye on. The righty just turned 22.
