    This year was definitely a missed opportunity for Cabrera, Peraza and Volpe. Anyone of them probably would have gotten the call to come and play second or third. Instead the yankees had to sign an over the hill Matt Carpenter.

    Peraza and Cabrera especially must be kicking themselves.

    That's a great article. His pitches all look great. Future is bright for him.

    It's a great sign to see Jasson picking up right where he left off after hitting a ball off his foot. 2/5 today. His OPS is almost up to .800. I think he is going to finish strong and potentially end up in High-A before the end of the year.

    If he ends up in high A for a couple months, there's a legit shot he gets to AAA the following year. That would mean he's around 3 yeas away from the bigs. If I recall. people were thinking his 22 or 23 year old season. That puts him on track.

    Scranton Railriders (17-27) (Defeated Jacksonville, 6-5, in ten innings)

    CF Estevan Florial: 1-for-3, RS, 2 BB, K, 2 SB (13)
    This is how you perform after being demoted back down here. Keep showing some progress.
    SS Oswald Peraza: 1-for-5, RS, 2 K, SB (9)
    Peraza is a perfect 9-for-9 stealing bases.

    1B Greg Bird: 0-for-5, RS
    PR Evan Alexander: 0-for-0, RS
    Ghost run!
    3B Derek Dietrich: 4-for-5, 3 2B (4), HR (1), 4 RBI, 2 RS, K
    With the current state of the MLB roster, it would be nice to get a few guys going down here. Dietrich has eight home runs between here and Somerset.
    RF Phillip Evans: 2-for-4, 2B (7)
    DH Jose Peraza: 0-for-4, K
    C Max McDowell: 0-for-3, RS, HBP, SB (2)
    2B Oliver Dunn: 0-for-3, HBP, 2 K
    Dunn’s Triple-A debut. He went 12-for-26 for Somerset with eight extra-base hits.
    LF Ender Inciarte: 0-for-2, 2 BB, SB (4)

    RHP Deivi Garcia: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, HR
    He wasn’t mowing Jacksonville hitters down, but leaving the game appears to be injury-related.

    RHP Reggie McClain: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K
    RHP Edward Mujica: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
    RHP Michael Gomez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, HR
    RHP Greg Weissert: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
    3.86 ERA (18.2 IP, 11 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 12 BB, 26 K). There is room for pitchers to make their MLB debuts with the injury issues up with the big club. Who will take advantage?
    RHP Zach Greene: (W, 4-0) 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K

    4.26 ERA (19 IP, 17 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 3 HR, 12 BB, 23 K). Another reliever who can get himself on the MLB radar.

    Somerset Patriots (26-15) (Lost to Portland, 3-1. The Patriots compiled only one hit)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 0-for-4
    CF Brandon Lockridge: 0-for-4, 4 K
    C Josh Breaux: 0-for-4, K
    3B Andres Chaparro: 0-for-2, HBP, K
    DH Elijah Dunham: 1-for-3, HR (6), RBI, RS, K
    Remember that the Triple-A season is longer than other leagues this season. I can see Dunham playing in Scranton during that final month, if not sooner. He has homered in back-to-back games and has three in his last four games. Dunham’s overall triple slash sits at .235/.316/.496. I love the power and I think there is room for him to hit for more average.

    LF Blake Perkins: 0-for-3, K
    .278/.379/.598 in 116 PA. The OPS has finally fallen below 1.000. Just remember that his career best prior to this season is .732, back in 2017 down in Single-A (at the time, known as Low-A).

    2B Jesus Bastidas: 0-for-3, K
    RF Michael Beltre: 0-for-3, K
    1B Max Burt: 0-for-3, 2 K

    RHP Randy Vasquez: (L, 0-1) 5 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
    2.43 ERA (29.2 IP, 18 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 11 BB, 26 K). The BABIP gods came after him tonight (.153 entering tonight) but he was able to limit the damage by not walking anyone.

    RHP Steven Jennings: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
    RHP Carlos Espinal: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

    Hudson Valley Renegades (19-22) (Defeated Rome, 8-5)

    C Anthony Seigler: 2-for-4, RS, BB, K
    Seigler is an on-base machine. Since his promotion: 6-for-13 with a double and four walks. He compiled 28 walks in 28 games for Tampa. I fall into the trap of thinking Seigler is older than he actually is (he is 22 – will turn 23 in June).

    SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-4, RS, HBP, K
    CF Everson Pereira: 3-for-5, RBI, 2 RS
    Last five games: 10-for-20 with a triple, two walks and four runs scored. He has three 3-hit games during this timespan.

    3B Tyler Hardman: 3-for-5, 2 RBI, K, SB (5)
    Hardman, off to a slow start this season, needed a game like this.
    1B Spencer Henson: 1-for-5, 2B (3), RS
    LF James Nelson: 1-for-3, SF, RBI, K, SB (10)
    DH Carlos Narvaez: 0-for-3, SF, RBI, K
    2B Eduardo Torrealba: 1-for-4, HR (1), RBI, RS
    Torrealba is known more for his contact and defense than he is power. He has eight home runs in 340 career games, though he did hit four of them in 65 games last season.
    RF Aaron Palensky: 2-for-3, HR (3), RBI, RS, BB, K

    RHP Matt Sauer: (W, 2-1) 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, HR
    4.06 ERA (37.2 IP, 33 H, 21 R, 17 ER, 3 HR, 11 BB, 50 K). An encouraging start for Sauer. Health is KEY.

    RHP Carlos Gomez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    Since promotion: 6.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K. In 19 innings down in Tampa, he compiled a 30/7 K/BB ratio.
    RHP Wellington Diaz: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, HR

    RHP Alex Mauricio: (S, 3) 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K

    Tampa Tarpons (20-22) (Lost to Lakeland, 8-4)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 0-for-4, RS, BB, 4 K
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-5, RS, 2 K, SB (6)
    His injury from yesterday evening was (obviously) not serious. The stolen base further confirms that. He is at .272/.331/.463 in 160 PA and .316/.402/.592 in May. As for the K%, it sits at 33.8.

    1B Anthony Garcia: 0-for-5, 4 K
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 2-for-3, 2B (6), HR (7), 2 RBI, 2 RS, BB, K
    It is impressive that the power is showing up in his first taste of full-season ball. Other aspects (especially the K rate) needs work, but making the transition to full-season baseball is not easy. A lot of prospects never adjust.

    RF Grant Richardson: 0-for-3, BB
    C Ben Rice: 1-for-4, 2 K
    LF Kyle Battle: 2-for-3, 2B (3), BB, K
    5-for-15 with three doubles. He has two walks and only one strikeout. At 24, he is definitely too old for this level. From an experience standpoint, this level is likely appropriate for now.
    DH Connor Cannon: 0-for-3, HBP, 2 K
    2B Luis Santos: 0-for-4, 2 K

    RHP Juan Carela: (L, 2-1) 4.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, HR
    Allowed six quick runs, which you don’t want to see (even if they weren’t all his fault). However, it is always nice to see a youngster calm things down.

    RHP Danny Watson: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    3.13 ERA (23 IP, 13 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 1 HR, 12 BB, 23 K). He allowed five runs in 1.2 innings back on 4/26. Beyond that, he has been ultra-effective.
    RHP Bailey Dees: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K
    3.38 ERA (10.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 0 HR, 6 BB, 13 K). Watson is 6’7″. Dees is 6’8″. The Yankees love their tall right-handed pitchers.
    LHP Ryan Anderson: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 0 K
    Anderson is 6’6″, so it isn’t just tall right-handed pitchers!

    Sorry I got this up late guys

    This year is the first I'm reading about it. I like it though. Side to side movement is underrated in my opinion.

    I agree. I asked my buddy what it was all about. They are teaching pitches, specially off speed pitches that produce that kind of movement to combat the launch angle swings. A more sweeping slider or "Whirly" is effective for that. He also said that the SL they are teaching, Sevy being the prime example, looks more like a CB. The idea with that pitch is to use it as a front door weapon that will get hitters to swing over the top of it.

    It's crazy what they can do now in a pitching lab to design pitches and then they can get the pitchers to be able to learn and execute them. Its really not hard to understand why hitter .BA's and contact rates continue to go down

    Launch angle has been destroyed, but pitching stats remain pretty similar to what they've always been. No one who was previously mediocre is in line for a cy young, meanwhile, batting averages have plummeted past .200. All this has basically turned previously great hitters into Gary Sanchez. This has made for a pretty shi**y viewing experience tbh. Bring back pre 2020 baseball.

    Bring back the juiced ball. 2019 was a fun year to watch baseball.

    Nice to see Peraza, Sweeney, and Breaux hit homeruns tonight. Cooper Bowman with two. Hopefully this is a springboard for all of them. Dominguez had another two hit night, along with two walks and a stolen base. His OPS is now .813 and average is .278. Looks like most of the complaining we did to start the season was unfounded as he continues to get closer and closer to .300. The strikeout rate is still a major concern, but it's easier to swallow that strikeout rate with his May production.

    Same old story with Medina, five strong innings, but three walks. Beck way was pulled after 2/3 of an inning. That's not a good sign. He has been largely disappointing this year.

    Scranton Railriders (17-28) (Lost to Jacksonville, 7-3)

    LF Estevan Florial: 1-for-5, RBI, 3 K
    2B Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, HR (5), RBI, 2 RS, BB
    .206/.273/.355 in 154 PA (6 doubles, 5 HR, 15 RBI, 14 R, 11 BB (7.1%), 36 K (23.4%), 9-for-9 SB)
    RF Phillip Evans: 1-for-4, K
    3B Derek Dietrich: 1-for-3, HBP
    8th HBP in 28 games. The Yankees re-signed him so he can show these kids how to take one for the team!
    SS Jose Peraza: 0-for-4, 2 K
    1B Ronald Guzman: 1-for-4, 2B (4), 3 K
    C David Freitas: 1-for-2, 2B (3), BB, K
    DH Oliver Dunn: 0-for-3, BB, K
    CF Ender Inciarte: 2-for-4, 2B (2), RS, CS (2)
    .278/.350/.417 in 80 PA. He missed some time due to injury.

    LHP Josh Maciejewski: (L, 0-1) 2.2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR
    First 2022 appearance for Scranton (promoted from Somerset). He pitched a little at this level in both 2019 and 2021.
    RHP Vinny Nittoli: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    RHP Braden Bristo: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR
    RHP Shane Greene: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K
    First appearance as a member of the Yankees organization since 9/24/2014. Time flies.
    LHP Trevor Lane: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

    Somerset Patriots (27-15) (Defeated Portland, 3-2)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4
    1-for-12 in his last three games, though none of the outs are via strikeout. That brings the BABIP and K% down, even if it doesn’t help the triple slash.
    RF Elijah Dunham: 1-for-3, RS, HBP
    Last 9 games: 11-for-34; 3 doubles, 1 triple, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 7 R.
    C Josh Breaux: 1-for-4, HR (8), 2 RBI, RS, 1 K
    Game-winning two-run blast in the top of the 8th. He is at .204/.259/.472 in 116 PA.
    3B Andres Chaparro: 1-for-4
    DH Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-4, RS
    He has a pair of multi-hit games in his last three games played.
    CF Jeisson Rosario: 1-for-4, 2B (4)
    LF Blake Perkins: 0-for-3, RBI, BB
    1B Chad Bell: 0-for-3, BB, 2K
    2B Max Burt: 0-for-3, 2 K

    LHP Luis Medina: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
    3.95 ERA (27.1 IP, 18 H, 16 R, 12 ER, 2 HR, 21 BB, 32 K). He allowed one run in 4.1 innings last time out, though he walked three.
    RHP Emmanuel Ramirez: (W, 3-0) 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, HR

    9 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 HR, 3 BB, 9 K. This is his first year in the Yankees’ organization after a long minor league career elsewhere (181 games from 2013-2021). You would think with a minor league career that long that Ramirez is bouncing around several organizations. The Yankees are only his third stop (Padres, Braves).
    RHP Carson Coleman (S, 1): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
    Between here and Hudson Valley: 0.37 ERA (24.1 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 HR, 10 BB, 33 K)

    Hudson Valley Renegades (19-23) (Lost to Rome, 12-10. They were down 10-1 early in the game and fought back. However, Rome tacked on in the 9th and Hudson Valley ran out of outs after scoring three of their own in the 9th)

    2B Cooper Bowman: 2-for-4, 2 HR (5), 2 SF, 5 RBI, 2 RS
    Bowman’s first career multi-HR game. He ties his personal best for RBI in a game. He is at .250/.383/.461 and has hit safely in nine of his last ten games.
    SS Trey Sweeney: 2-for-5, HR (4), 3 RBI, RS, BB
    Sweeney’s first HR since the end of April. He breaks a 13-game extra-base hit drought. This game gets the triple slash up to .190/.275/.353.
    CF Everson Pereira: 2-for-4, 2B (2), 2 BB, K
    Pereira was hitting .230 after games of 5/18. A 12-for-24 stretch has that up to .277. His OPS is up to .739 (.277/.381/.358)
    3B Tyler Hardman: 2-for-6, 2 K, SB (6)
    Back-to-back multi-hit efforts (5-for-11) as he tries to get his season on track.
    1B Spencer Henson: 0-for-4, RS, BB, 4 K
    LF James Nelson: 0-for-3, RS, 2 BB
    RF Aldenis Sanchez: 1-for-4, 2 RS, BB, K
    C Carlos Narvaez: 1-for-4, RS, BB, K
    DH Eric Wagaman: 2-for-3, RBI, 2 RS, 2 BB
    PR Eduardo Torrealba: 0-for-0

    RHP Beck Way: (L, 2-2) 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, HR
    Statistics note: This is why evaluators prefer K% over something like K/9. Way has been up-and-down lately – not so good on 5/13, very good on 5/21, tough outing tonight.
    RHP Jhonatan Munoz: 3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 2 HR
    RHP Bryan Blanton: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 0 K
    RHP Tanner Myatt: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
    0.95 ERA (19 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 1 HR, 13 BB, 29 K)
    RHP Charlie Ruegger: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, HR
    LHP Nelson Alvarez: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

    Tampa Tarpons (20-23) (Lost a heartbreaker to Lakeland, 10-9. They scored four in the 9th and two in the tenth to take the lead, only to allow three in the bottom of the 10th)

    CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-4, 2B (12), RS, 2 BB, K, SB (7)
    Dominguez is up to .278 with an .813 OPS. He is 7-for-9 in the stolen base department (3-for-3 in last four games). His 12 doubles lead the organization and he has five multi-hit games in his last six games played.
    C Antonio Gomez: 1-for-5, HR (2), 3 RBI, RS, BB, K
    Since coming back: 7-for-22 with two home runs (he was 0-for-6 in his first two games back; 7-for-16 since)
    1B Anthony Garcia: 0-for-3, RS, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 SB (9)
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 1-for-5, HR (8), RBI, RS, 3 K
    Back-to-back games with a HR. Three home runs in his last five games. In May, he has six home runs in 21 games. The big key for him is cutting back on the strikeouts. But don’t underestimate a kid hitting with this kind of power in his first season of full-season ball.
    SS Ben Cowles: 1-for-4, 2B (3), RBI, BB, 2 K, SB (3)
    RF Alan Mejia: 0-for-5, RS, 5 K, SB (2)
    Being the ghost runner in extra innings has its benefits, as it allows Mejia to add positives (stolen base, run scored) to his rough night.
    DH Kyle Battle: 1-for-4, HR (1), RBI, 2 RS, HBP, K, SB (1)

    6-for-19 with three doubles and a home run. At 24, he should dominate this league and get himself up to Hudson Valley. He started the season in the injured list, which is why he only has six games played.
    LF Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-3, RBI, 2 RS, BB, HBP, SB (2)
    2B Roberto Chirinos: 2-for-5, 2 RBI

    RHP Richard Fitts: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, HR
    6.52 ERA (29 IP, 35 H, 23 R, 21 ER, 7 HR, 5 BB, 34 K). I love the lack of walks and the strong strikeout rate. I must wonder if one issue is command within the strike zone, given the home runs. Whatever – it’s his first taste of professional ball so patience is needed.
    RHP Trevor Holloway: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
