    Scranton Railriders (80-64) (Defeated Lehigh Valley, 4-1. Durham (81-64) lost, so Scranton is now 0.5 games behind in the standings. While Jacksonville is still technically in it, they have fallen back a bit recently)

    CF Estevan Florial: 1-for-5, 2 RBI, 2 K, CS (9)
    SS Anthony Volpe: 1-for-5, 2 K
    Volpe is hitting .230 with a .647 OPS since his promotion. Again, no reason for concern. We’ll see if he can get hot for a few games before the season comes to a close.
    LF Blake Perkins: 3-for-3, RS, 2 BB
    Perkins has five 3-hit games this season. He is hitting .263 with a .844 OPS since his promotion.
    1B Armando Alvarez: 0-for-4, BB, 3 K
    1B Ronald Guzman: 0-for-0
    DH Josh Breaux: 1-for-5, RS, K
    2B Tyler Wade: 3-for-4, RBI, RS, SB (13)
    13-for-14 stealing bases in 39 games.
    3B Phillip Evans: 1-for-3, SF, RBI, K
    RF Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 2B (4), RS, K
    C Max McDowell: 0-for-2, BB, HBP, K

    RHP Sean Boyle: (W, 4-1 (here); 12-5 overall) 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, HR
    Since promotion: 4.04 ERA (42.1 IP, 44 H, 19 R, 19 ER, 10 HR, 14 BB, 38 K). The home run ball has been the bugaboo. Overall, between here and Somerset, he is all the way up to 150.1 innings with a 155/34 K/BB ratio.
    RHP Miguel Castro: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
    RHP Albert Abreu: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
    RHP Braden Bristo: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    A big strikeout to strand the bases loaded. Season: 4.73 ERA (51.1 IP, 51 H, 33 R, 27 ER, 6 HR, 30 BB, 61 K)
    LHP Chasen Shreve: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
    RHP Jimmy Cordero (S, 4): 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

    Boyle seems like a guy who may contribute next year. Nothing spectacular but he seems to be rounding into solid shape as a pitcher

    You also have to wonder if there would be an uptick if he was put in the bullpen. Most pitchers who can throw 150 effective innings in the minor leagues have something going for them that would allow them to excel in the bullpen. I think the biggest question is whether the Yankees protect him or not. He is rule 5 draft eligible and I think he would be gone if they don't.

    Scranton Railriders (80-65) (Lost to Lehigh Valley, 1-0. Durham (81-64) is currently winning, 8-4, in the 7th inning of their game)

    CF Estevan Florial: 0-for-2, 2 BB, 2 K, CS (10)
    SS Anthony Volpe: 0-for-3, BB, K
    DH Ben Rortvedt: 0-for-3, BB, K
    RF Ryan LaMarre: 0-for-4, 2 K
    C Josh Breaux: 1-for-3
    Scranton’s only hit of the night…
    2B Chris Owings: 0-for-3
    1B Ronald Guzman: 0-for-2, BB
    3B Phillip Evans: 0-for-3
    LF Blake Perkins: 0-for-3, 3 K

    RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
    Nice outing by the veteran, who owns a 4.03 ERA in 22.1 innings since joining the organization.
    RHP Michael Gomez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
    LHP Anthony Banda: (L, 1-2) 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
    RHP Jacob Barnes: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K

    Somerset Patriots (83-53 (regular season); 2-1 in the playoffs) (Lost to Erie, 6-5, in Game 1 of the Best-of-3 championship series. The final two games will be played in Somerset, beginning on Tuesday)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-5, 4 K
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-4, 2B (1), RS
    While he did commit a big error in this game, it is nice to see him earn these hits.
    C Austin Wells: 2-for-4, 2 2B (2), 2 RBI, RS
    1B Andres Chaparro: 1-for-3, RS
    DH Elijah Dunham: 0-for-3, BB, K, SB (1)
    RF Jeisson Rosario: 0-for-4, 3 K
    2B Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-4, RBI, RS, K
    3B Tyler Hardman: 1-for-3, 2B (1), 2 RBI, 2 K
    PH Mickey Gasper: 0-for-1
    I like Gasper but I am not sure why they sent up a PH for Hardman in the 9th, given the two-run double and power he has provided all season (mostly in Hudson Valley)
    LF Brandon Lockridge: 1-for-4, RS, 3 K

    RHP Will Warren: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2 HR
    Warren cruised through four innings before running into some trouble in the fifth.

    RHP Shawn Semple: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
    LHP Matt Minnick: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
    RHP Aaron McGarity: (L, 0-1) 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
    An unfortunate 7th inning error (by Dominguez) ended up scoring the losing run.
    RHP Carson Coleman: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

    Scranton Railriders (81-65) (Defeated Lehigh Valley, 3-1. Durham (83-64) won. Scranton is 1.5 games behind with only four games to play (Durham has three). If Scranton can sweep their two games tomorrow while Durham loses, that would put them in a tie. Easier said than done)

    CF Estevan Florial: 1-for-5, RBI, BB, 2 K, 2 SB (38)
    Florial’s previous SB high was 23, back in 2017.
    2B Chris Owings: 0-for-3, 2 BB, 2 K
    C Ben Rortvedt: 1-for-3, 2 BB
    It will be interesting to watch Rortvedt next spring, when he should be in the middle of a competition for MLB playing time.
    LF Ryan LaMarre: 2-for-4, 2 2B (9), RS, HBP, K
    1B Ronald Guzman: 1-for-5, 2B (24), RBI
    3B Armando Alvarez: 1-for-5, RS, K
    SS Tyler Wade: 0-for-2, RBI, RS, 3 BB, 2 SB (15)
    Wade causing some Triple-A chaos.
    DH Rob Brantly: 1-for-5, 3 K
    RF Michael Beltre: 1-for-3, 2 BB, K, 2 SB (4)
    Beltre is 27-for-30 stealing bases between here and Somerset. He is hitting .311 with a .959 OPS since his promotion (54 PA)

    RHP Zach Greene: 1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
    3.33 ERA (67.2 IP, 50 H, 32 R, 25 ER, 11 HR, 31 BB, 94 K)
    RHP Tyler Duffey: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
    LHP Matt Krook (W, 10-7): 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K
    4.09 ERA (138.2 IP, 120 H, 71 R, 63 ER, 19 HR, 73 BB, 155 K). We’ll see where he ends up in 2023 – you would think a smaller market would give him an audition.
    RHP Jhony Brito: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    3.25 ERA (69.1 IP, 57 H, 25 R, 25 ER, 4 HR, 24 BB, 51 K). He also tossed 42 innings of 2.36 ERA ball down in Somerset.
    RHP Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    Weissert’s first appearance since his demotion – he showed the stuff that made him successful in Scranton this season, but his command/control was off at times. A learning experience for when he gets another shot.
    RHP Richard Rodriguez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    Season: 4.03 ERA (22.1 IP, 15 H, 10 R, 10 ER, 3 HR, 7 BB, 23 K)
    RHP Jimmy Cordero (S, 5): 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
    The feeling needs to be mutual, but I bet the Yankees try to keep him around for 2023.

    Scranton Railriders (82-66) (Split two games with Buffalo. Durham (84-64) won so Scranton is two games back with only two games remaining)

    Game 1 (Lost, 5-4, in ten innings – this was the conclusion of a game that started back on August 7th)

    CF Estevan Florial: 0-for-4, BB, 3 K, SB (39)
    SS Oswald Peraza: 0-for-2, HBP
    If you recall, this HBP caused quite a stir as he needed to leave the game at the time with an apparent wrist injury.
    PR-SS Tyler Wade: 1-for-2, HR (4), RBI, RS
    3B Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-3, 2 K
    3B Armando Alvarez: 0-for-2
    PR: Anthony Volpe: 0-for-0, CS
    LF Miguel Andujar: 0-for-2
    PH-LF Blake Perkins: 0-for-1, RS, 2 BB, K
    DH Ben Rortvedt: 0-for-3, 2 K
    C Josh Breaux: 1-for-4, HR (6), 2 RBI, RS, 2 K
    Breaux is up to 19 home runs overall. Season, between here and Somerset: .219/.283/.423 in 399 PA (14 doubles, 2 triples, 19 HR, 50 RBI, 44 R, 31 BB, 113 K)
    1B Phillip Evans: 1-for-2, RS, K
    PH-1B Ronald Guzman: 0-for-2
    RF Michael Beltre: 0-for-2, 2 BB
    2B Chris Owings: 1-for-4, RBI, K

    RHP Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, HR
    RHP Richard Rodriguez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    RHP Edward Mujica: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2 HR
    LHP Chasen Shreve: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
    Shreve blew the save in the 9th.
    RHP Luke Bard (L, 0-1): 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

    Game 2 (Won, 8-7, in 11 innings)

    CF Estevan Florial: 0-for-5, SAC, 4 K
    He will just need to forget about this one…though he did get a bunt down in the 11th!
    SS Anthony Volpe: 2-for-6, 2B (4), HR (3; 21st overall), RBI, 2 RS, SB (5)
    Volpe matches last year’s total with his 35th double of the season. The stolen base was his 49th in 56 attempts. As for the home run, he is now tied with Tyler Hardman for the organizational lead.
    C Ben Rortvedt: 1-for-6, RBI, 2 K
    He makes his one hit count – the walk-off single in the 11th (supposedly, it wasn’t hit hard but who cares?)
    DH Ryan LaMarre: 2-for-2, 2B (10), RS, 3 BB
    1B Ronald Guzman: 1-for-5, HR (16), 2 RBI, RS
    PR-1B Rob Brantly: 0-for-0, RS
    2B Chris Owings: 1-for-2
    2B Derek Dietrich: 1-for-3, RS, K
    I guess he is back from his PED suspension…
    LF Tyler Wade: 0-for-3, 2 BB, 2 K
    3B Armando Alvarez: 3-for-5, HR (18), 2 RBI, RS, K
    RF Blake Perkins: 0-for-2
    RF Michael Beltre: 1-for-2, 2B (5), RBI, K
    Five doubles and two home runs in 20 games since his promotion.
    PH-RF Phillip Evans: 0-for-1, RS

    RHP Mitch Spence: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, HR
    You again? At this level: 3.86 ERA (51.1 IP, 52 H, 24 R, 22 ER, 5 HR, 16 BB, 48 K). Overall, Spence tossed 130.1 innings this season, recording a 127/42 K/BB ratio. He is Rule 5 eligible.
    RHP Albert Abreu: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
    RHP Michael Gomez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
    RHP Deivi Garcia: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    I am intrigued to see what they will do with Garcia this off-season.
    RHP Jacob Barnes: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
    RHP Jimmy Cordero: 1 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, HR
    An error behind him (by Volpe) didn’t help his cause…neither did allowing the tying 3-run home run.
    RHP Braden Bristo: (W, 3-3) 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

    I wonder how much better Wells would be if they didn't saddle him behind the plate for 75 games this year for no reason. He's not a future catcher. Let him play a full season as a first baseman and let him mash. In case anyone in the FO hasn't noticed, there aren't many first baseman available that can hit. It's not just catchers anymore.

    a number of us have been wondering the same thing for a while. It makes zero sense to keep him behind the plate and we certainly have more of a need for a 1st baseman than C. IMO Wells could be a .300 30hr guy as a 1st baseman. He's actually not bad with the glove so it wouldn't surprise me if he took to 1st base well.

    Sweeney is another guy who would benefit from a position change.

    They'll keep Wells behind the plate and Sweeney at SS for the same reasons. Perceived trade value and they never want to admit they we're wrong on their 1st round pick

    The look and sound of unadulterated youthful exuberance, joy and happiness. Glad he's a Yankee.

    Switching to first base is something that takes about 1/2 of a season IMO. Let him stay at catcher as long as possible. Even if he has the ability to catch in a pinch and nothing else, that's valuable to a team. Having him as a backup catcher who plays on his off days at 1b is even more valuable. To be good enough to be a backup catcher, you have to play there every day in the minors.

    The worst case scenario with this plan is they move him to first base full time later if he can't become an average catcher. By many reports he has greatly improved. I'm fine with letting this play out. He's not going to play left or right field on this team. So it's either catcher or 1b.

    I'd love for him to turn into a defensively valuable version of Victor Martinez

    The glove for Wells is actually good, but it's the arm that doesn't play behind the plate. I've seen grades as low as 35. With the pitch clock coming and the emphasis that is going to be put on the running game next yr, IMO he's going to have to do some serious work with his arm to even be a back up.

    Or he could put that same effort into hitting full time and figuring out how to pick balls at 1st. IMO, Wells has a very, very good LH bat. He's always been a high avg hitter and thats only going to go up without the shift going forward.

    IMO, u have to look at what the value of him as a backup C and 1st baseman would be in a yr or so vs getting him up full time at some point next yr.

    As long as Rizzo is here they can leave Wells behind the plate, but if Rizzo goes, they don't exactly have another elite LH bat they could stick their.

    Wells can just flat hit, period. I would be curious to see what his bat would look like if he didn't have to focus so much time and energy trying to stick behind the plate

    I agree that if Rizzo does not return the Yankees either need to get another stopgap or fast track Wells at first base. I don't see them doing the latter even if Rizzo opts our and does not re-sign with the Yankees though. If Rizzo doesn't re-sign, the Yankees will sign or trade for someone to replace him.
