Two quick notes to pass along:
- RHP Roansy Contreras and RHP Luis Gil have entered MLB.com’s top 30 Yankees prospects now that RHP Dillon Tate and RHP Cody Carroll have been traded away. Exciting write-ups for both. “Contreras’ fastball velocity has increased from 89-93 mph when he turned pro to 93-97 mph this season,” and Gil is “regularly working at 95-98 mph with his fastball and topping out at 101.” Huh.
- The Yankees have released OF Terrance Robertson, reports Matt Eddy. The Yankees gave him an overslot $170,000 bonus as their 12th round pick in 2015. Robertson hit .212/.331/.266 (87 wRC+) with no homers and 28 steals in 42 attempts in 130 career games, none above rookie ball.
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders Game One was suspended again due to rain. The game was suspended with two outs in the bottom of the third yesterday, resumed today, then suspended again after the top of the fifth. Here’s the box score. They’re going to complete this one — or try to, anyway — as part of a doubleheader tomorrow.
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders Game Two was rained out. The game was canceled and will not be made up.
