Some quick notes to get us started:
- SS Gleyber Torres was named the Triple-A International League Offensive Player of the Week and RHP Jonathan Loaisiga was named the High-A Florida State League Pitcher of the Week. Both are off to great starts this season.
- OF Rashad Crawford was sent down from Triple-A Scranton to Double-A Trenton. That clears a spot for OF Shane Robinson, who cleared waivers and was outrighted over the weekend.
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (6-1 loss to Gwinnett)
- 2B L.J. Mazzilli: 0-4, 1 BB
- 3B Gleyber Torres: 0-2 — lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning … Brian Cashman confirmed Gleyber was pulled as a precaution with back stiffness
- C Kyle Higashioka: 1-4, 1 2B — picked a runner off second with a snap throw … he just wrecks Triple-A pitching
- SS Abi Avelino: 1-4, 1 RBI
- RHP Chance Adams: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 1 HR, 4/1 GB/FB — 58 of 96 pitches were strikes (60%) … it was cold and he’s coming off elbow surgery, so I’m going to cut him some slack for this one
- RHP J.P. Feyereisen: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
