DotF: Torres and Rutherford both go deep in losses

Game 34: Let's Win Two
Yankees 11, Astros 6: Big seventh inning snaps three-game losing streak

Triple-A Scranton announced several roster moves today. 1B Ji-Man Choi and LHP Daniel Camarena have been placed on the disabled list — I have no idea what’s wrong with either (Camarena missed the entire 2015 season with an elbow injury, it’s worth noting) — and both 1B Mike Ford and RHP Colten Brewer have been bumped up from Double-A Trenton. The Camarena injury and RHP Chad Green call-up solved the whole “seven starters for five spots” problem real quick.

Triple-A Scranton (6-2 win over Syracuse)

  • 3B Tyler Wade: 1-3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 CS — he’s been on base 41 times in his last 16 games (.420 OBP)
  • CF Dustin Fowler: 1-5, 2 K
  • RF Clint Frazier: 2-5, 2 R, 2 RBI — 13-for-43 (.302) in his last eleven games
  • 1B Mike Ford: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K — nice Triple-A debut
  • C Kyle Higashioka: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
  • DH Mason Williams: 1-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
  • RHP Chance Adams: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HB, 5/2 GB/FB — 57 of 97 pitches were strikes (59%) … strong Triple-A debut … 39/18 K/BB in 40 innings so far this year … I’d like to see him get the walks down, and I’m sure the Yankees would too
  • RHP Colten Brewer: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 2/0 GB/FB — 20 of 28 pitches were strikes (71%) … makes his Triple-A debut exactly two weeks after making his Double-A debut

Double-A Trenton Game One (2-1 win over Harrisburg in seven innings)

  • SS Thairo Estrada, 3B Gleyber Torres & DH Miguel Andujar: all 0-3 — Torres and Andujar both struck out once
  • CF Billy McKinney: 0-2, 1 R
  • RHP Brady Lail: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 6/5 GB/FB — 59 of 100 pitches were strikes

Double-A Trenton Game Two (6-4 loss to Harrisburg) makeup of yesterday’s rainout

  • SS Thairo Estrada & CF Jake Cave: both 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI — Cave has three homers in 15 games
  • 2B Gleyber Torres: 1-2, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB — that’s his second dinger of the season … here’s a GIF of the dinger
  • 3B Miguel Andujar: 0-2, 1 RBI, 1 K
  • RF Billy McKinney: 0-2, 1 BB
  • LHP Nestor Cortes: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K2 HB, 3/4 GB/FB — 38 of 66 pitches were strikes (58%)

High-A Tampa had a scheduled off-day. The entire Florida State League is off. Weekend off-days will never make sense to me.

Low-A Charleston (10-2 loss to West Virginia)

  • LF Estevan Florial: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K
  • 3B Angel Aguilar & SS Hoy Jun Park: both 0-4, 1 E — Aguilar made a fielding error, Park made a throwing error
  • CF Blake Rutherford: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K — first dinger of the season
  • C Donny Sands: 0-4, 1 K
  • 1B Isiah Gilliam: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K — 19-for-38 (.500) with six doubles and two homers during his eleven game hitting streak
  • 2B Diego Castillo: 0-3, 1 E (fielding)
  • RHP Adonis Rosa: 2 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 2/3 GB/FB — 29 of 38 pitches were strikes (76%) … allowed four homers! ouch
