By

Short Season Staten Island is sending six players to the NY-Penn League All-Star Game: 1B Bubba Jones, IF Jose Rosario, 3B Eric Jagielo, OF Yeicok Calderon, RHP Rookie Davis and RHP Stefan Lopez. Congrats to all.

Triple-A Scranton, Double-A Trenton, and Short Season Staten Island all had scheduled off-days. How about that.

High-A Tampa (6-5 win over Fort Myers, walk-off style)

  • CF Mason Williams: 0-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SB
  • 2B Rob Refsnyder: 1-1, 1 R, 1 RBI, 3 BB, 2 SB — helluva night
  • LF Ben Gamel: 0-5, 2 K
  • 3B Peter O’Brien: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB — walk-off two-run dinger
  • RHP Jairo Heredia: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 7/2 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston (6-0 loss to Savannah)

  • 2B Angelo Gumbs: 1-4, 1 2B, 3 K — got picked off second
  • RHP Jose Campos: 2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 3/1 GB/FB — he came out of the bullpen in the eighth inning, which is kinda weird

  • SS Tyler Wade: 0-5, 1 K
  • 2B Gosuke Katoh: 1-4, 1 K
  • LF Dustin Fowler: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 RBI — was stuck in a 2-for-21 (.095) slump
  • RF Austin Aune: 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
  • RHP Erick Canela: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 9/1 GB/FB — 25/8 K/BB in 25.2 innings

Rookie GCL Yanks2 (9-3 win over GCL Blue Jays)

  • SS Abi Avelino: 3-4, 3 R, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 SB, 1 E (fielding) — that’s four straight games with a triple … 27-for-56 (.482) in his last 13 games
  • C Luis Torrens: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 PB

    more fun than the game thread

  2. Caballo Sin Nombre says:

    If Tyler Wade married Austin Aune, would their child be… Tyler Austin?

  3. forensic says:

    Campos out of the bullpen?

    This could be a fun thread…

  4. YankeeGrunt says:

    I think you meant Tyler Wade.

  5. Caballo Sin Nombre says:

    Bird, Fowler, Yeicok, Webb… these are poultry names.

  6. Caballo Sin Nombre says:

    “Jake Cave” was 1920-era slang for a really fine vagina…

  7. Curtis says:

    “sending six players to the NY-Penn League All-Star Game”

    SYSTEM SUCKS CASHMAN FAILED

  8. YankeeFan says:

    I thought the reason why to bring in Gil Patterson was to change things up. Apparently they are still doing the same thing from the Nardi regime. Why bring Campos in out of the bullpen? Makes no sense. I really believe the talent is there for the system to thrive and produce ML players but the development has just been a complete lost in translation.
