DotF: McKinney and Andujar lead Trenton to a blowout win

Offense breaks out for two hits, Yankees beat A's 3-2
Grounded for the Month of May

Got a couple quick notes to pass along:

  • IF Donovan Solano (calf) was activated off the Triple-A Scranton disabled list, reports Donnie Collins. With Solano healthy and SS Gleyber Torres recently promoted, the RailRiders are heavy on infielders at the moment.
  • RHP Domingo Acevedo placed second on this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. He allowed seven hits and two walks in 13.2 scoreless innings in his first two Double-A starts. Acevedo struck out 14.

  • 1B Tyler Austin: 1-3, 1 RBI, 1 K — his rehab has been moved up here, obviously … played seven innings tonight and is 7-for-17 (.412) with one double and two triples in six rehab games so far
  • RF Clint Frazier: 1-5, 1 K — snaps his three-game homer streak
  • CF Mason Williams: 0-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB
  • LHP Caleb Smith: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 5/4 GB/FB — 67 of 92 pitches were strikes (73%) … 45/14 K/BB in 48.2 innings after spending last season as (primarily) a reliever in Double-A the last two years
