    Peraza's hands are really quick. I love seeing that. Quick to the ball and then explodes through it.

    I want a team that runs like hell

    RHP Glen Otto won the Double-A Northeast League Pitcher of the Week. He threw six shutout innings and faced just one batter over the minimum. Otto was a non-roster invitee to spring training and cracked MLB Pipeline’s top-30 Yankees prospects list.
    OF Zack Zehner was bumped up to Triple-A from Double-A. Seems like just some roster shuffling. Zehner is 28.
    OF Jasson Dominguez faced Luis Severino in the rehabbing righty’s first live batting practice today (Marly Rivera).
    Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders
    Scranton topped Lehigh Valley, 5-2 (box score). The RailRiders are now 6-2 on the season.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Nick Green: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 1 HBP, 3 K – 36 of 61 pitches were strikes (59%). Seems like a minor miracle that he didn’t allow more runs with all that traffic.
    In relief: RHP Reggie McClain: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K – 15 of 23 pitches were strikes (65%). Hasn’t allowed a run in three appearances/4.2 IP
    In relief: RHP Addison Russ: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K – 18 of 32 pitches were strikes (56%). Finally got into a game after yesterday’s roster snafu.
    In relief: RHP Brooks Kriske: 1.0 IP, zeroes, 2 K – 10 of 18 pitches were strikes (56%).
    In relief: RHP Luis García: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K – 12 of 14 pitches were strikes (86%). Picked up his second save.
    Hitting star: C Robinson Chirinos: 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI – Second homer of the season…will be able to opt out of minor league contract come June.
    Hard hittin’: 1B Chris Gittens: 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K – Off to a .333/.548/.714 start
    Leftovers: CF Ryan LaMarre stole a base and drove in two runs…2B Derek Dietrich struck out twice and walked twice, also made an error…3B Armando Alvarez doubled, scored twice….no other Railrider had a hit.

    Double-A Somerset Patriots
    The Patriots improved to 6-3 with a 6-1 win over New Hampshire (box score). They did so in spite of going just 1-for-19 with runners in scoring position. Incredible.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Janson Junk: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K – 39 of 62 pitches were strikes (63%). Very good performance for a pitcher with a very good pitcher name.
    In relief: LHP J.P. Sears: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K – 37 of 61 pitches were strikes (61%). Sears struck out 46.4 percent of hitters in the Mariners’ organization in 2017, but only 23.6 percent in the Yankees’ system. More of this would be nice.
    In relief: RHP Ronald Marinaccio: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K – 13 of 18 pitches were strikes (72%)
    Florial Watch: DH Estevan Florial: 1-5, 1B – didn’t strike out, which is always nice to see. Florial’s biggest drawback is his propensity to swing-and-miss…has a 23 percent strikeout rate so far.
    Hitting Star: CF Thomas Milone: 2-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 SB – Was a solo homer, his third so far…his career high is four homers…hitting .385/.469/.846
    Hitting Star: 3B Oswaldo Cabrera: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB, 1 K – Left unprotected from Rule 5 draft…the two doubles were his first extra base hits of the season…also made fielding error.
    Leftovers: Diego Castillo (double) and Michael Beltre (triple) had extra base hits

    High-A Hudson Valley Renegades
    Hudson Valley fell to 4-5 after losing 9-5 to Aberdeen tonight (box score). Game was 3-3 through six innings, but the IronBirds put up five in the eighth to put this on away.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Jhony Brito: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K – 43 of 67 pitches were strikes (64%). All runs came in first inning after Brito retired first two batters he faced.
    In relief: RHP Zach Greene: 3.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 4 K – 28 of 47 pitches were strikes (60%)…the run he gave up was inherited by Tanner Myatt.
    In relief: RHP Tanner Myatt: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 2 K – 18 of 43 pitches were strikes (42%)…6-foot-7 righty has had control problems for his entire minor league career, now has 61 walks in 62 innings.
    In relief: RHP Justin Wilson: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K – 21 of 40 pitches were strikes (53%)…No, not that Justin Wilson.
    In relief: LHP Mat Minnick: 0.1 IP, 1 K, zeroes – 3 pitches, 3 strikes.
    Hitting star: DH Oswald Peraza: 1-3, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 CS – Has two homers and nine steals – nine! – already. 20 year-old is off to a nice start: .270/.372/.486 in 9 games.
    Prospect watch: SS Ezequiel Duran: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K – Typically plays second base, not short. This nice play was credited to Peraza, but it’s not clear by the video whether it was Duran or Peraza…I’m going by the box score.
    Prospect watch: C Josh Breaux: 0-4, 2 K – Hitting .161/.278/.387 with 13 strikeouts in 36 plate appearances…rough start for the former second round pick in 2018.
    Leftovers: Other than Breaux, everyone in the lineup had a hit…1B Steven Sensley had two, including a double…CF Brandon Lockridge was replaced defensively in the ninth inning, not sure why.

    Single-A Tampa Tarpons
    Tampa lost 3-2 to Lakeland (box score). The Tarpons are 6-3.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Jhonatan Munoz: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – 32 of 46 pitches were strikes (70%). Better than his first start, at least. Gave up 5 runs in 1.1 IP in his season debut.
    In relief: RHP Connor Pellerin: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K – 18 of 44 pitches were strikes (41%). That must have been painful to watch.
    In relief: LHP Edgar Barclay: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – 23 of 40 pitches were strikes (58%)
    In relief: RHP Trevor Holloway: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K – 19 of 32 pitches were strikes (59%)
    Cooling off: 2B Trevor Hauver: 0-2, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 SB – one hit in last 12 at-bats…at least he walked three times today. Also made an error, his third. Still has a 1.559 OPS thanks to his ridiculous start.
    First round watch: DH Austin Wells: 0-4, 1 K – one of many hitless Tarpons today
    Leftovers: 3B Andres Chaparro and SS Max Burt combined for Tampa’s only three hits (Burt had two, including a double)…team struck out 13 times.

    Regarding Florial, that swing amd miss would lead me to believe he over swings. It’s not just recognition. A good, quick bat can hit bad pitches if they really shorten up

    True. But if you are fooled no amount of bat speed will help. You are swing over the top or under the ball, not always or only a matter of catching up, but rather adjusting the plane of the swing. Particularly on off speed breaking stuff, if you fail to recognize you are swinging at where "the ball was not where it is." Hanging mistakes he should be hammering I agree.

    Estevan Florial has been promoted from Somerset(Double A) to SWB(Triple A)

    My guess, with the Hicks torn wrist issues, needed the depth and now he is within reach after 10 days in Triple A in regards to the ''covid safety'' policy they are currently under.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    I would argue that shortening the swing will prevent you from being fooled to the point of missing the ball.
    TO be clear, I am talking short quick, defensive swings. Of course you can still miss but it does change your odds. The catch is, it needs to be taught and practiced.
    I would change his entire approach. I would go with the Cano approach. Pull off speed and hit FB the other way

    Peraza didn't start tonight but was used as a pinch hitter in the 7th and hit a 2R HR, then went deep again in the 8th with another 2R shot .....kid is fire

    Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders
    Scranton improves to 8-2 with a 6-4 victory over Lehigh Valley (box score). The Railriders were down 3-0 after two, but tallied five runs in the fifth and never looked back.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Brian Keller: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 3 K, 2 WP – 32 of 66 pitches were strikes (48%)
    In relief: RHP Kyle Barraclough: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K – 16 of 31 pitches were strikes (52%)…when he’s right, he can rack up strikeouts.
    In relief: RHP Albert Abreu: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K – 18 of 37 pitches were strikes (49%)…a very typical Abreu outing.
    In relief: RHP Adam Warren: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K – 24 of 36 pitches were strikes (67%)
    In relief: RHP Luis García: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 K – 10 of 17 pitches were strikes (59%)…picked up his third save.
    Hitting star: 3B Armando Alvarez: 1-4, HR, 2 RBI – His two-run homer started the Railriders’ comeback from down 3-0
    Patience is a virtue: LF Zack Zehner: 0-0, 4 BB, R, RBI – One of his four free passes came with the bases loaded
    Leftovers: RF Ryan LaMarre tied this game with an RBI single not long after Alvarez’s homer in the third…SS Andrew Velazquez and the aforementioned Zehner drew bases loaded walks to take and increase the lead later in the same inning...As noted at the top, CF Greg Allen departed early after fouling a pitch off his leg.
    Double-A Somerset Patriots
    A rough sixth inning cost the Patriots this one, falling 7-3 to New Hampshire (box score). Somerset is now 6-4.

    Starting pitcher: RHP Glen Otto: 5.1 IP, 10 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 0 BB, 8 K – 70 of 91 pitches were strikes (77%)…Ran out of gas in the sixth…three of his runs allowed were inherited and given up by Ridings. Not a great follow up to six shutout frames in Otto’s first star.
    In relief: RHP Stephen Ridings: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K – 11 of 17 pitches were strikes (65%)…A pitching line that exemplifies why reliever ERA is not great.
    In relief: RHP Keegan Curtis: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K – 22 of 29 pitches were strikes (76%)
    Hitting star: 1B Dermis García: 1-2, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K – Somehow is still just 23 years-old, though don’t bet on him figuring things out at this point. Has 17 strikeouts in 47 plate appearances.
    Suporting role: DH Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-3, RBI, BB, K, CS – Has reached base in all ten games.
    Supporting role: LF Isaiah Gilliam: 1-4, R, 2B, 2 K, SB – broke an 0-for-18 skid to start the season.
    Leftovers:3B Brandon Wagner, C Donny Sands, and CF Thomas Milone all had hits.

    High-A Hudson Valley Renegades
    The Renegades are back to .500. They improve to 5-5 with a 9-4 win over Aberdeen (box score).

    Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Medina: 4.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR – 46 of 80 pitches were strikes (58%). Retired first eight hitters he faced. Gave up a couple of runs, including a solo homer, in the fourth to end his day.
    In relief: LHP Josh Maciejewski: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K – 27 of 44 pitches were strikes (61%).
    In relief: RHP Nick Ernst: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K – 16 of 25 pitches were strikes (64%).
    Hitting star: SS Oswald Peraza: 2-2, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI – Came off the bench in this one…third and fourth homers of the season tie his career high already. Both came in the first pitch of his at-bats.
    Hitting co-star: 2B Oliver Dunn: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI
    Leftovers: SS Ezequiel Duran moved to second base after Peraza entered…second straight game he’s started at short. He went 0-4 with a walk and a stolen base. C Josh Breaux, DH Pablo Olivares, 3B James Nelson, CF Isaiah Pasteur, and LF Frederick Cuevas all had hits…Cuevas had two.


    Single-A Tampa Tarpons
    Like Scranton, Tampa rallied back from a 3-0 deficit to win this one, 7-4 over Lakeland (box score). The Tarpons are 7-3.

    Starting Pitcher: RHP Matt Sauer: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K – 41 of 75 pitches were strikes (55%). 2017 second rounder now has 10 walks in 9.2 innings this season.
    In Relief: RHP Sean Boyle: 3.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – 29 of 40 pitches were srikes (73%)
    In Relief: RHP Nelvin Correa: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K – 24 of 39 pitches were strikes (62%)
    In Relief: RHP Kevin Milan: 1.0 IP, zeroes, 2 K – 7 of 10 pitches were strikes (70%)
    Hitting star: C Austin Wells: 2-5, 2 R, 3B, 3 RBI, K – Triple in fifth gave Tarpons the lead…came in to score on a wild pitch after.
    Obligatory heck-in: 2B Trevor Hauver: 0-2, 2 BB – Replaced on defense in the 8th…went first-to-third in the top of the 7th, but played defense in the bottom half, so I’m not making much of this.
    First rounder: SS Anthony Volpe: 1-5, R, 2 RBI – Opened the scoring with an RBI single…has been on base in all but one game.
    Leftovers: RF Jake Sanford struck out three times and went hitless…3B Max Burt tallied two hits and a double…DH Carlos Narvaez and LF Elijah Dunham also picked up knocks.

    I get the feeling, Wells is going to fast track. I will not be surprised if he gets bumped to AA around the break and even tastes some AAA by the end of the season.

    Great approach, no question. But, to the original point, if pitch recognition is the issue a shorter swing may not be complete solution.
