Jagielo’s big night helps SI to blowout win

Game 131: The Captain Returns, Part III
The Slide Continues: Yankees no match for Blue Jays in series opener

Some notes — mostly roster moves — from the last few days:

  • RHP Charley Short has been bumped up to Double-A Trenton, according to Nick Peruffo. The 25-year-old former indy baller has a 1.84 ERA (~1.85 FIP) with an 81/16 K/BB in 58.2 relief innings across three levels this season. Expect the Thunder to get some more reinforcements for the playoffs in the coming days.
  • 2B Angelo Gumbs has been placed on the Low-A Charleston DL. I’m not sure what’s wrong with him, but he had a finger injury earlier this year and an elbow injury last summer. IF Fu-Lin Kuo has joined the team to fill the roster spot.
  • RHP Rookie Davis has been promoted from Short Season Staten Island to Low-A Charleston. He had a 2.36 ERA (2.72 FIP) in 42 innings across eleven starts for the Baby Bombers. RHP Luis Severino was sent to one of the GCL Yanks affiliates to clear a roster spot.

Rookie GCL Yanks2 (6-0 win over GCL Braves in seven innings) completed early due to rain, and they clinched a playoff spot with the win … I wonder if they’ll funnel all the good players from  GCL Yanks1 over here to help with the playoff push

  • C Luis Torrens: 1-4, 1 K

Game 131: The Captain Returns, Part III
The Slide Continues: Yankees no match for Blue Jays in series opener
  • Richard Leo

    Angelo Gumbs is very bad this year

    • Chenkov

      Yeah he is pretty bad but I think that they should bump him up to double a soon just to see how he does.

  • Billy boy

    So no Aaron Judge this year?

    • Argenys

      Probably in the Arizona Fall League.

  • ropeadope

    A welcome return to DotF Mike, and a big thank you to commenter Get Phelps Up for his farm summaries in your absence the past couple of days.

    • Get Phelps Up

      Thanks man!

  • pat

    Farm has been more disappointing than the MLB team this year. Ugh.

  • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

    Gosuke Katoh … had gone eight games between walks

    Ain’t got nothing on Cano.

    • Tyrone Sharpton

      guess kabak won’t be munching hat this year

  • Wayne

    Someone asked about simon De la rosa last week. He has been compared to Rafael depaula and is striking out fifteen hitters more than innings pitched. They say if he can his control down he is going to be a beast! 21 next year and to have two type depaula pitchers is great man! Still have not given up on Jose Ramirez and I hope the yankees have no either. Also looking forward to Brady Lail pitching next year. If rookie Davis can develope we might be able to use him as trade bait. Lets see what we can get for him next year.

  • Wayne

    Gosuke Katoh could end up replacing cano in a few years. He comes from a school with a good reputation I might add from what I have read! He is not a wasted pick in my eyes. I have a feeling yankees knew what they were doing when they drafted him. He has a little pop and could be a plus defender.

  • trr

    Happy to see Jags producing !

  • Robert

    Was at SI game last nite.Without getting excited Jageilo looked very good,Two of his outs were drives to the outfield walls were the fielders made outstanding catches,plus his double was off a lefty which he took to the oposite field.
    Avelino also had two line drive outs and looked good in the field.Caleb Smith a lefty pitched 5 innings of 1 hit ball.
    And I must add David Palladino at 6’9″ looked like a Defensive End.
    But Jageilo and Avelino very impressive.

    • phil

      Nice to hear on both..Jageilo and Avelino!

  • FLYER7

    …and Romine struck the last out of the game well, a line drive to right…let’s see if Girardi plays him 2 of 3 in Toronto. He should be in lineup tonight but who knows?
