SWB’s Manager suggests that an overlooked minor leaguer that could help the team is OF Ben Gamel. Perhaps if Gardner can be dealt for pitching help (offered, no takers), that may happen.

AAA: SWB won 10-4. Gamel had 2 hits, 2 RBI. Severino shaky, 5 2/3 IP, 4 runs. Apparently the Yanks want him to concentrate on his changeup right now and aren’t too concerned with results as long as he throws and perfects the change. Severino, however, should just keep his mouth shut. He stated that he could just work on things in the majors instead of being demoted. Not with an ERA over 7.00 you won’t. Time to shut the Yap, Luis, and do what they tell you. You should be a bit more humble with that MLB ERA over 7.00 this year. Mason Williams 3 hits, RBI (another candidate for OF spot if Gardner dealt) . Donovan Solano 3 hits. Refsnyder 2 hits, RBI. Frazier 2 hits. Jake Cave 3 hits, 2 RBI.

AA: Trenton won 4-1. Chance Adams only went 4 1/3 (Innings limit?)   1 R, 3 H, 2 walks and 10 K.  Wondering why pulled after 10 of 13 outs recorded were by strikeout.  2 hits, RBI Dustin Fowler.

High A:   Tampa won 3-0 on a 2-hitter. Yefrey Ramirez 8 IP, 1 hit, 0 walks, 8 K. Connor Spencer 2 hits and an RBI.

Low A: Charleston won 4-1. Daris Vargas 6 shutout IP.

AAA: SWB beat LV, 5-3. Dietrich Enns didn’t start, but did get the win, giving up 1 run in 3 IP of relief. Why he isn’t on the 40 man roster, and why the Yanks don’t bring him up baffles me. He is 7-2, 1.33 at SWB, and overall this year, between AA and AAA, he is 14-4, 1.65. I’d rather see a kid like him, or Chance Adams or Jordan Montgomery get a shot than to see someone like Swarzak and others like Yates and Shreve continue to do poorly. Just saying. Time to try someone else. Ben Gamel 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI. Mason Williams 2 hits, 2 RBI. Rob Refsnyder and Donovan Solano 2 hits each.

AA: Trenton won 5-2. Dan Camarena (9-5, 3.36) 6 IP, 1 R. Dustin Fowler 2 hits, triple, HR, 3 RBI. Billy McKinney 2 hits, RBI. Mike Ford 2 hits.

High A: Tampa off.

Low A: Charleston won 8-2. Nick Green pitched six shutout innings. 3 hits, 2 HR and 5 RBI for Chris Gittens. Alexander Palma 2 RBI. Ricardo Ferreira and Cesar Diaz 2 hits each.

An aside: I hate playing “matchups.” If a pitcher comes in and does well, why not leave him in? Too often you see these “one out guys” come in, dominate, and get pulled because of matchups. Then the next guy comes in and stinks and blows the game. If a guy is doing well, just leave him in there. Guess I am too “old school” but I hate this managing by the book too much. Go by what you see and go with your gut. Guy is doing well? Ride that horse.

AAA: SWB won 7-4. Luis Severino 5 2/3 IP, 4 runs, 3 ER, gave up 10 hits and struck out 10. So good and bad. Mason Williams 2 hits, triple, 2 RBI. 2-run HR for Clint Frazier. 2 hits for Donovan Solano. 3 hits and an RBI for Jake Cave.

AA: 2-0 win for Trenton. Ron Herrera 7 IP, 4 H, 8 K. Miguel Andujar and Mark Payton 2 hits each.

High A:  Tampa won 11-0. Nestor Cortes 7 IP, 2 H, 9 K. Devyn Bolasky 4 hits,  3 RBI. 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI Rashad Crawford. 3 hits Jorge Mateo. 3 hits, triple, 2 RBI Gleyber Torres. 2 hits, RBI Zack Zehner. 2 hits Wes Wilson.

Low A: Charleston won 2-0. Daris Vargas 6 IP, 1 hit. 6 k (10-6, 2.80). Taylor Widener 7 K in 3 relief innings. Kyle Holder 2 hits, Rbi.

The Minors. Enns good again.

AAA: SWB split a DH.

In the regularly scheduled game, SWB won 2-1 in 8 innings (both games of a DH scheduled for 7). Dietrich Enns probably isn’t on the 40 man roster, and I don’t know what move the Yanks may need to make to get him on it, but I hope they do and soon. I don’t know why the NY media, be it print, TV or radio, isn’t mentioning him. The 25 year old lefty pitched 5 1/3  innings last night and gave up 1 run.  Between AA and AAA this year, he is 13-4, 1.62. How could he be better? What does he need to do for a callup? I’d like to see him get a shot. He got a ND. Johnny Barbato 2 2/3 for the win. Mason Williams 2 hits.

SWB lost 3-2 in an 8-inning game. This was a makeup of a game rained out on May 29th. Donovan Solano 2 hits, rbi. Clint Frazier 2 hits. Jake Cave 2 hits.

AA: Trenton was off.

High A: Tampa won 2-1. Thairo Estrada 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston off.

Already, the DP combo the Yanks have at Tampa now, with the newly acquired Torres at SS and Mateo at 2B, is being discussed and regarded highly.

One scout thinks Torres is the Yanks’ SS of the future (with Didi being a super-utility guy or traded) with Mateo the 2B (he didn’t speak of Castro). We’ll see what the future holds. There could be a whole new infield, what with the now injured Greg Bird at 1B and with Miguel Andujar opening eyes at 3B for Trenton.

Another writeup mentioned Chance Adams, RHP at Trenton, as being the best unknown jewel in the minors. Hopefully some of these kids really make it and produce for the Yanks in a few years.

OF Jake Skole was released to make room for Torres.

AAA: SWB swept a DH to go to 66-38.

Regularly scheduled game: 3-2 win. Just promoted Vincente Campos 1 R in 5 IP.  Gary Sanchez 2 doubles.

Makeup of 7/25 rainout: SWB won 3-0 in 7 innings.  Luis Cessa CG 4-hit shutout.2 hits Mason Williams, 2 hits and an RBI for Sanchez, 2 RBI Donovan Solano, 2 hits Pete Kozma.

AA: Trenton (63-40) won 15-4. The aforementioned Adams was off, 3 R in 5 1/3, but in 20 starts this year between Tampa and Trenton, is 11-0,  2.53. For his minor league career, the soon-to-be-22-year-old is 14-1, 2.34. Mark Payton 2 hits, HR, 3 RBI. 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI Dante Bichette, Jr. 2 hits, 4 RBI Cito Culver. Lane Adams 3 for 3 with 2 walks.  Mike Ford 3 hits. Kyle Higashioka 2 rbi. Tyler Wade 3 hits. Dustin Fowler 2 RBI. A great night offensively, all around.

High A: As mentioned, Torres at SS, Mateo at 2B. Tampa (58-43) won 9-1. James Reeves 6 Ip, 1 R, 2 H. Kevin Cornelius 3 hits, double, HR, 4 RBI. 3 hits, rbi, Thairo Estrada. 2 hits Zack Zehner.
