    Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders
    The RailRiders won a completely ridiculous game against Syracuse 17-11, improving to 2-1 on the season. 17 runs!


    Starting Pitcher: RHP Deivi Garcia: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 7 BB, 3 K, 1 HR – just 32 of Deivi’s 72 pitches (46%) went for strikes…woof
    In Relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 2 K – took him 38 pitches to throw one inning…half were strikes
    In Relief: RHP Braden Bristo: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 0 K – jeez, a pitcher didn’t allow a run in this game?
    In Relief: RHP Nick Goody: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 3 K – 58% of his pitches were strikes, at least
    In Relief: Luis Garcia: 1.0 IP, 1 K – 54% of his pitches went for strikes in the only clean inning on either side in this one
    Miggy Mantle: 1B-3B Miguel Andújar: 4-5, 4 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB – interesting to see him play the infield after the Gio injury, he’d been in LF both other nights so far
    One of Many Hitting Stars: LF Trey Amburgey: 3-6, 1 HR, 3 RBI
    Bronx Watch: 1B Chris Gittens: 2-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB
    Leftovers: everyone with an at-bat, minus Kyle Holder (0-2) and Greg Allen (0-4), got a hit…the RailRiders had 17 hits and 8 walks and left 8 men on base
    Somerset Patriots
    The Patriots lost their first game of the season, falling to 2-1 in a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Harrisburg Senators.

    Starting Pitcher: LHP Matt Krook: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 3 K – 58% of his pitches went for strikes…he was a 2020 Rule 5 Pick
    In Relief: RHP Carlos Espinal: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K – 63% of his pitches went for strikes…faced 11 batters and got 10 outs thanks to a double play
    Florial Watch: CF Estevan Florial: 1-4, 1 K – he’s 3-12 with 5 strikeouts so far
    Hot Hitter: 3B Diego Castillo: 2-4, 1 R – he’s now 5-11 on the season…also made 2 errors
    Leftovers: Kevin Gadea gave up a run and Reid Anderson 2…Oswaldo Cabrera, Donny Sands, and Zack Zehner each logged a hit
    Hudson Valley Renegades
    The Renegades fell to 1-2 on the young season, with a 5-1 loss to the Jersey Shore BlueClaws. Still, ‘Gades pitchers struck out 12 and mostly pitched pretty well, minus a disastrous, 4-run 7th inning that featured 2 walks, a hit batter, a sac fly, and a triple. That’ll do ya.

    Starting Pitcher: RHP Hayden Wesneski: 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 8 K – 38 of his 53 pitches (72%) went for strikes…the 23-year-old retired 15 of the 16 batters he faced, with the only blemish a HR to the 2nd batter of the game…he still took the loss
    In Relief: RHP Tanner Myatt: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 4 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 2 K – 21 of his 38 pitches (55%) went for strikes…the 22-year-old started the 7th, when the game got away
    In Relief: RHP Nelson L Alvarez: 1.1 IP, 1 H, zeros, 2 K – cleaned up Myatt’s mess, but the damage was done…threw 60% strikes
    Notable: DH Oswald Peraza: 1-4 – the 20-year-old SS logged his first hit of the season, making him 1-13
    Notable: SS Ezequiel Duran: 2-4 – the 21-year-old is off to a fast start, 5-13 to start the year…all singles
    Notable: C Josh Breaux: 1-4, HR – the 23-year-old catcher logged his first HR of the season
    Leftovers: the rest of the lineup went 0-16 with 5 strikeouts, though they did walk 6 times
    Tampa Tarpons
    The Tarpons improved to 3-0 on the season, beating Dunedin 10-6. Their offensive rampage continued. Tampa is a great team to follow so far.

    Starting Pitcher: RHP Randy Vasquez: 3.1 IP, 1 R, 1 B, 1 K – 29 of his 48 pitches (60%) went for strikes
    In Relief: RHP Sean Boyle: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 4 K – retired 9 of the 10 batters he faced…threw 70% strikes
    In Relief: LHP Edgar Barclay: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 3 K –threw 60% strikes, but got hit around
    In Relief: RHP Zack Kohn: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 K, 1 BB – threw just 50% strikes
    First Round Watch: SS Anthony Volpe: 3-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI 2 K – the 20-year-old is 6-13 with 4 XBH to start the year, nice start to his first full pro campaign
    First Round Watch X2: C Austin Wells: 0-5, 2 K – first hitless game of his pro career
    Giancarlo Who?: 2B Trevor Hauver: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI – the 22-year-old is 8-10 with 4 homers so far…not bad…the HR was crushed

    Hot Streak: RF Jake Sanford: 2-4, 1 R – the 23-year-old is 8-15 so far
    Leftovers: Spencer Henson, Max Burt, and Elijah Dunham each had a hit…Evan Alexander had 2…every player had at least one run scored

    Arizona State had four players selected as infielders in the 2020 Draft, with the Yankees announcing Hauver as a second baseman even though the Sun Devils' depth relegated him to the outfield in college. He posted a 1.007 OPS while batting primarily leadoff as a sophomore in 2019, then raked at a 1.189 clip while batting third behind No. 1 overall pick Spencer Torkelson during the shortened 2020 season. A third-round choice, Hauver signed for $587,400.

    A confident hitter, Hauver works deep counts looking for pitches he can drive. His strength and the loft in his left-handed stroke give him solid raw pop and produce high exit velocities. He projects to hit for average and power while also drawing a healthy number of walks.

    Hauver's defensive home is in question, with the best-case scenario seeing him develop into a serviceable second or third baseman. He's a fringy runner with similar arm strength, so left field and first base are his only other realistic options. Comparisons for Hauver range from Daniel Murphy on the high end to former Yankees outfielder-turned-second baseman Robert Refsnyder.
    He also has gotten alot of comps to former Yanks farm hand turned hitting star Nick Solak

    The Yanks might have gotten a steal here, especially if he keeps improving defensively

    Has anyone else noticed the Yanks are having having Duran play SS in high A, after.only playing 2nd andn3rd to this point in his career?

    Usually infielders have to move off SS as they go up the ladder not the other way around. It will be interesting to see if they plan on moving him there full time or if they are just adding to his versatility?

    If he could play SS, with his bat, it would make him much more value

    Based on the first couple nights we're seeing just about everything we could hope for to this point

    I haven't seen any info on Peraza. Am I missing it or did he not even start yet?

    Considering I have been a huge lobbyist for signing Daniel Murphy, that would be fantastic.

    The mention of Nick Solak just reminded me that the yankees traded him away for a blind man to play third base LOL

    Was Solak part of that Drury trade??

    Solak has turned into a pretty good player. The scouting department never believed he could hit for enough power to be an everyday player... he makes tons of contact and gets OB at a pretty high clip, he'd be a really nice player to have on the roster. Then again when they traded him he was blocked by Torres coming off a 38hr season.

    If Hauver can hit at the MLB level as well as Solak, we'll be very happy with that result

    Yes, i believe he was shipped off with Taylor Widener. Hauver has the makings of a star based on 3 games lol.

    I certainly didn't say he is or was going to be a star. I said if Hauver can hit as well as Solak at the MLB level, we'll be happy with that result.

    I didn't even say Solak was a star, just a pretty good player
