An example of the stupid save rule. I mean, how do you get a “save” in a 17-0 win? What, he got the save because he didn’t give up 17 runs?

Minor League Report. Frazier HRs for third straight game. News on Torres & Adams.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (26-18) won 4-2 as RF Clint Frazier homered for his third straight game. He was 2 for 3 with a double and the solo HR.

I don’t mean to pick on Chase Headley, but just stating something that is fact and could be a harbinger of what may be to come, and appears to be of no coincidence. Headley is hitting .158 since April 19th. Meanwhile, since being called up to AAA, all three of Gleyber Torres’ games have had him starting at 3B. You can read the tea leaves here.

Torres was 2 for 3 with an RBI last night. Just putting one and one together, here.

Mason Williams had 2 hits and an RBI.

Chance Adams improved his career minor league record to 22-3, 2.01.

The Yanks won’t rush them, but you have to start wondering how close Torres and Adams are to making their MLB debuts.

Adams (W, 2-1, 2.12 AAA, overall AA/AAA this year—6-1, 1.38) 5 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 W, 4 K.

Frieri (S, 5 ) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.29

AA: Trenton (30-16) won 8-6. Good to see good records at both AAA and AA, and even High and Low A ball are over .500.

SS Thairo Estrada 3 hits.
CF Jake Cave 3 hits, 2 doubles, 3 RBI.
3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, 2 RBI
LF Zack Zehner 3 hits, rbi.
RF Billy McKinney 2 hits.
2B Abiatal Avelino 2 hits, RBI.

Lefty Josh Rogers made his AA debut after going 4-3, 2.22 at High-A Tampa.

Rogers (w, 1-0, 6.35) 5 2/3 IP, 4 R, 5 H, 1 W, 3 K.

Low A: Charleston (24-23) scored in the bottom of the 13th to win 2-1. C Eduardo Navas the GW single. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, solo HR. 2 hits each for 3B Angel Aguilar and SS Hoy Jun Park.

Nick Green 5 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 3 W, 5 K. 3.02
