Triple-A Scranton is off until Thursday for the All-Star break. The All-Star Game itself is Wednesday night. LHP Caleb Smith will represent the Yankees. OF Dustin Fowler was selected to the game as well, but won’t participate due to the fact he’s both hurt and in the big leagues right now.
Double-A Trenton is also off until Thursday for the All-Star break. Their All-Star Game is Wednesday night as well. LHP Nestor Cortes, SS Thairo Estrada, RHP Yefry Ramirez, and OF Zack Zehner will represent the Thunder. LHP Justus Sheffield and 1B Mike Ford were also selected for the All-Star Game but won’t participate. Sheffield is hurt (oblique) and Ford was recently promoted to Triple-A.
High-A Tampa was rained out. They’re going to make this one up as part of an August 28th doubleheader.
Low-A Charleston (5-4 loss to Columbia)
