DotF: Torres plays first game at third base in Trenton’s win

Game 13: The Quest For Another Sweep
Yankees 7, White Sox 4: Holliday and Judge homer as winning streak hits eight

Here are the day’s notes:

  • RHP Chance Adams was named the Double-A Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. He started his season with 9.2 scoreless innings and has a 0.79 ERA (3.02 FIP) through two starts. With Johnny Barbato (traded) and Dietrich Enns (injured) both out, there are some openings in the Triple-A Scranton rotation. I’m guessing Adams will be there soon.
  • RHP J.P. Feyereisen has been placed on the Double-A Trenton disabled list, the team announced. Supposedly it’s a shoulder problem. That’s never good. Hopefully it’s nothing a little rest won’t knock out.

Triple-A Scranton had a scheduled off-day.

Double-A Trenton (1-0 win over New Hampshire)

  • SS Thairo Estrada: 0-3
  • 3B Gleyber Torres: 0-3, 1 K — first career game at third base … the plan is supposedly two games a week at the hot corner
  • DH Miguel Andujar: 0-3, 2 K
  • 1B Mike Ford: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI
  • RF Billy McKinney: 0-2, 1 BB — got picked off first … remember his great Spring Training? he’s off to a 5-for-29 (.172) start, though at least four of his five hits have gone for extra bases (two doubles, one triple, one homer)
  • CF Rashad Crawford: 0-3, 1 K
  • RHP Domingo German: 6.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 11/3 GB/FB — 57 of 89 pitches were strikes (64%) … German had the turbosinker working tonight, I see
  • LHP Nestor Cortes: 0.2 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 0/1 GB/FB — eight pitches, six strikes

High-A Tampa (3-1 loss to Palm Beach)

  • DH Jorge Mateo & CF Trey Amburgey: 0-4, 2 K
  • SS Kyle Holder: 1-5 — second hit of the season! also his first non-homer … he’s now 2-for-39 (.052) on the year
  • 1B Matt Snyder: 3-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K
  • 3B Mandy Alvarez: 1-4, 1 K
  • 2B Abi Avelino: 1-3, 1 K
  • RF Austin Aune: 0-3, 1 K — he is 7-for-36 (.194) with 19 strikeouts (48.7 K%)
  • LHP Josh Rogers: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 6/3 GB/FB — 66 of 81 pitches were strikes (81%) … not a great outing, but he’s now made 22 starts at this level, so I can’t imagine he’ll be here much longer

Low-A Charleston (7-2 win over Augusta)

  • SS Hoy Jun Park: 2-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SB, 1 E (fielding) — 11-for-21 (.524) during his little five-game hit streak
  • LF Estevan Florial: 2-5, 1 SB — threw a runner out at second
  • 2B Diego Castillo: 0-5, 1 RBI
  • CF Blake Rutherford: 1-3, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 SB — boy, Rutherford really knows how to fill up all the columns, huh?
  • C Donny Sands: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 PB, 2 E (catcher interference, throwing)
  • 3B Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-4, 1 R
  • DH Isiah Gilliam: 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB
  • RHP Nick Green: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 8 K, 3 WP, 4/1 GB/FB — 54 of 93 pitches were strikes (58%) … 13/10 K/BB in 11.1 innings for one of the players who came over in the Carlos Beltran trade
