The Yankees have signed OF Omar Carrizales and assigned him to Triple-A Scranton, report Kegan Lowe and Conor Foley. The former Rockies prospect (another former Rockie!) hit .229/.289/.376 (84 wRC+) with seven homers and eleven steals in 90 Double-A games last season. Carrizales took 1B Mike Ford’s spot on the roster. Ford was called up to replace the injured Greg Bird. Just a warm body move to help get through the injuries. Nothing more.
The Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders were rained out. They’ll play a doubleheader tomorrow.
Double-A Trenton Thunder (7-6 win over Akron in ten innings, walk-off style)
- 2B Hoy Jun Park: 1-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K — holding his own in Double-A so far
- SS Kyle Holder: 0-4, 2 K, 1 HBP
- RF Ben Ruta: 0-6, 2 K, 1 SB
- PR-1B Brandon Wagner: 1-1, 1 RBI — he pinch-ran for 1B Chris Gittens in the late innings, then provided the walk-off single
- CF Rashad Crawford: 1-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
- RHP Trevor Stephan: 3 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1/2 GB/FB — 50 of 72 pitches were strikes (69%) … his first three starts this year haven’t gone too well … hopefully he turns things around soon
- RHP Domingo Acevedo: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1/1 GB/FB — eleven pitches, nine strikes
