    I'm leaning towards Cashman needing to pivot. The arms, especially at the lower levels seem to be real. That should be our future. But the position players are not looking like true studs.

    So here's my reason to pivot. Use our arms as future pitchers for this team. Trade for or sign position players. If we need to use some of our pitching depth as assets in trades, we should because we supposedly have enough to do that.

    News:

    In a shocking move around Yankees’ prospect circles, OF Jake Sanford was released last night. There are rumors that Sanford was involved in a baseball memorabilia scam on Facebook. I have no idea how deep that goes or how much it contributed to his release, but the Yankees were not going to release him due to performance. He has been a productive minor league player with MLB aspirations.

    The 2022 season has been a mystery for Sanford. The Yankees did not assign him out of minor league camp, which was strange given that he appeared destined for Somerset at some point during the year. One assumes that was injury-related, but the latest rumors just add more intrigue to a strange story.

    A third-round pick in the 2019 draft, Sanford hit .285/.356/.467 in 435 plate appearances last season for Tampa/Hudson Valley. He contributed 13 doubles, five triples, and 16 home runs. Fangraphs didn’t list him in their Top 40 prior to 2022, though they did note his power and bat speed.

    Down in Tampa, C Ben Rortvedt reportedly had a setback during his minor league rehab stint. The injury appears to be to his knee. He only played in two games (one behind the plate), going 2-for-4 with a home run.

    Scranton Railriders (12-22) (Earned a much-needed win over Syracuse, 4-1)

    RF Estevan Florial: 2-for-4, 2B (7), RS, 2 K, SB (10)
    14-game on-base streak. He is 11-for-32 in May with four doubles, four runs scored, five walks, and is a perfect 5-for-5 stealing bases.
    He keeps hitting, hitting for power, stealing bases at a very high rate and playing elite defense. If Hicks doesn't improve on either side of the ball soon, I'd much rather see Flo get a shot. I'm surprised Hicks hasn't hit the IL yet
    SS Oswald Peraza: 2-for-3, 2B (6), 2 RBI, BB, K
    .214/.289/.359 in 114 PA. It would be a tremendous boost if Peraza went on a hot streak.

    3B Miguel Andujar: 0-for-3, BB, K
    LF Phillip Evans: 0-for-4, K
    LF Ender Inciarte: 0-for-0
    The offense should receive a bit of a boost with the return of Inciarte, who was hitting .295/.380/.455 in 50 PA before heading to the injured list.
    1B Greg Bird: 1-for-4, K
    DH Max McDowell: 1-for-3
    C David Freitas: 0-for-3, K
    2B Armando Alvarez: 1-for-3, HR (2), RBI, RS
    9-for-42 with three doubles and a pair of home runs (.214/.244/.429)
    CF Evan Alexander: 1-for-1, 2 RS, 2 BB, SB (5)
    I have to give props to Alexander. This is a young kid who is being asked to do little more than pinch-run and come in for defensive purposes. It is easy for a veteran’s bat to freeze up in this type of role, never mind a youngster’s.

    RHP Hayden Wesneski (W, 1-4): 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, HR
    2.31 ERA (35 IP, 21 H, 11 R, 9 ER, 3 HR, 6 BB, 36 K). Weird fact: He has struck out either four or six batters in his seven starts this season (six batters four times; four batters three times)
    .
    LHP Trevor Lane: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
    RHP Jose Mujica: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    RHP Shelby Miller (S, 3): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    The veteran boasts a 2.70 ERA in 13.1 IP (10 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB, 13 K)

    Somerset Patriots (20-11) (Defeated Altoona in a fun game, 8-7)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4, 2 RS, BB, 2 SB (13)
    To say Volpe needed a game like this is an understatement. He is 13-for-14 stealing bases and has 16 walks (12.6%) and 20 runs scored. The strikeouts are higher than he would like (33; 26%). Overall, I still don’t find myself overly concerned though I would love to see a hot streak.

    LF Brandon Lockridge: 1-for-3, RS, 2 BB
    23 runs scored in 28 games. 12 walks in 121 PA (9.9%). In 2021, he walked 22 times in 327 PA (6.7%). His power is down, but I have confidence that it will pick up as we get into the warmer months.
    CF Jeisson Rosario: 2-for-5, 2B (3)
    Back-to-back multi-hit games.
    2B Derek Dietrich: 3-for-5, 2B (5), HR (7), 3 RBI, RS
    The veteran takes over the organizational home run lead.
    RF Blake Perkins: 2-for-4, 2 2B (9), RS, BB
    17 extra-base hits (9 doubles, 2 triples, 6 home runs) in 96 PA. He is still slugging .663. We are talking about a player who has never slugged above .378 in any prior season.

    DH Michael Beltre: 0-for-4, SF, RBI, 4 K
    A key sacrifice fly late in the contest offsets those four strikeouts. I love baseball.
    3B Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-5, 2B (5), RBI, RS, 3 K
    15 starts at 2B, three starts at SS, and two starts at 3B. For a kid like Bastidas, versatility is key.
    C Rodolfo Duran: 1-for-4, HR (2), 2 RBI, RS
    7-for-22 with a double and two home runs. He played 31 games in Double-A last season in the Phillies organization (and four in Triple-A). It is fine for him to be parked here, though an extended hot streak can certainly put him on the Triple-A radar.
    1B Max Burt: 1-for-3, HR (2), RBI, RS, BB, 2 K, SB (5)

    RHP Luis Medina: 3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, HR
    RHP Emmanuel Ramirez: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

    LHP Josh Maciejewski: (W, 1-0) 4.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K
    He continues to play the “piggyback” role very well. Season: 3.10 ERA (20.1 IP, 17 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 2 HR, 7 BB, 27 K)
    RHP Nick Ernst (S, 2): 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
    2.76 ERA (16.1 IP, 11 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 HR, 7 BB, 19 K)

    Hudson Valley Renegades (15-16) (Lost to Aberdeen, 7-3, in 11 innings)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 0-for-3, 2 BB
    7-for-37 in May with four doubles and three walks.
    DH Everson Pereira: 1-for-4, BB, 3 K, CS (5)
    The power has disappeared for now, but he is drawing his walks (14 BB in 123 PA; 11.4%). Entering tonight, he was averaging 4.102 pitches per plate appearance, which would be the highest of his career if he keeps it up.

    C Austin Wells: 1-for-4, RS, BB, K
    Wells has been so good that this particular night, where he reached base 40% of the time, feels boring.

    2B Cooper Bowman: 0-for-3, 2 BB, K
    Ten walks in ten May games (he had 16 in 17 April games, so he is showing off the plate discipline)
    3B-1B Tyler Hardman: 1-for-5, HR (3), 2 RBI, RS, K
    Hardman hit a two-run HR with two outs in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game. On 5/11, he hit a pinch-hit HR in the bottom of the 8th to give Hudson Valley a lead. He came up with the bases loaded and two outs in the 11th, but couldn’t repeat the magic.
    CF Aldenis Sanchez: 0-for-2, BB, K
    LF James Nelson: 0-for-1, RS, K
    1B Eric Wagaman: 0-for-3, BB, K
    PR-3B Eduardo Torrealba: 0-for-0
    RF-CF Pat DeMarco: 0-for-3, SF, RBI
    LF-RF Aaron Palensky: 0-for-4, 2 K

    LHP T.J. Sikkema: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
    The road for Sikkema will be a long one, but if he proves he is healthy, he can move fast once he is beyond this phase. They allowed him to throw 37 pitches tonight.

    LHP Edgar Barclay: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
    1.48 ERA (24.1 IP, 16 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 0 HR, 6 BB, 32 K)
    RHP Carson Coleman: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
    0.47 ERA (19.1 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 HR, 9 BB, 26 K). It is only his second year in professional ball (thanks, COVID!) so it is fine that he is here – but eventually, the 23-year-old will make his way to Somerset.

    RHP Tanner Myatt: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
    He tossed a solid 9th inning but was charged with a ghost run in the 10th.
    RHP Bryan Blanton: (L, 0-1) 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR

    Tampa Tarpons (14-17) (Lost to Dunedin, 1-0. The Tarpons struck out 24 times in this game. One of Dunedin’s kids was throwing in the upper-90s and hit over 100 a few times)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 0-for-4, 4 K
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 0-for-4, 4 K
    1B Anthony Garcia: 0-for-2, 2 BB, 2 K
    Good job by Garcia drawing a few walks in this game. He has 29 walks in 26 games this season.

    3B Marcos Cabrera: 0-for-4, 4 K
    C Anthony Seigler: 1-for-3, BB, K, SB (5)
    Sometimes, you can tell when a player has some experience on his side as Seigler seemingly wasn’t as overwhelmed as others were.
    LF Grant Richardson: 0-for-2, 2 BB, K
    RF Alex Mejia: 0-for-4, 3 K
    DH Connor Cannon: 0-for-3, HBP, 3 K
    2B Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-3, 2 K

    RHP Chandler Champlain: (L, 0-2) 5.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, HR
    Excellent job keeping this game close. Season: 2.49 ERA (25.1 IP, 22 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 3 HR, 5 BB, 29 K)

    LHP Ryan Anderson: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
    RHP Danny Watson: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
    The 6’7″ hurler has thrown pretty well: 19 IP, 12 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 1 HR, 11 BB, 17 K. He is 21 years old.

    Phoba, I think you were on to something with drafting Ben Joyce and trying him as a starter.

    They gave him a chance to start yesterday and he threw the 23 hardest pitches every by a starting pitcher at any level college or professional. Ranging from 102.1 to 104.7

    I don't think he will make it to the Yankees at this rate.

    Scranton Railriders (13-22) (Defeated Syracuse, 3-1. They are currently ten games behind Rochester. The comeback will be epic, folks)

    CF Estevan Florial: 1-for-4, HR (3), RBI, RS
    15-game on-base streak. Season: .270/.365/.430 in 115 PA (7 doubles, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 14 R, 15 BB (13%), 32 K (27.8%), 10-for-11 SB). Last season, he struck out 121 times in 401 PA (30.2%) while walking 46 times (11.5%). So, we are seeing a little increase in the walks and a dip in the strikeouts. The stolen base efficiency is also improved. It is OK to be cautious when it comes to Florial, but the signs thus far are encouraging.

    LF Ender Inciarte: 1-for-3, RS, K, SB (3)
    His return to the lineup improves the organization’s depth.
    3B Miguel Andujar: 2-for-3, HR (4), 2 RBI, RS
    .303/.361/.500 in 83 PA. With Oswald Peraza playing better, I am suddenly seeing some good signs with the organizational depth. Oswaldo Cabrera has been out of action for a while, however.
    SS Jose Peraza: 0-for-2, BB
    1B Ronald Guzman: 0-for-3, K
    Guzman has been disappointing. He is down to .148/.293/.235 in 99 PA.
    C Max McDowell: 0-for-3
    DH Rob Brantly: 0-for-2, BB
    The #3 catcher (with Ben Rortvedt having a setback) is 8-for-29 with a home run and four walks. The reason for the small sample size is that he spent some time on the IL.
    2B Armando Alvarez: 0-for-3, K
    RF Evan Alexander: 0-for-3

    LHP JP Sears (W, 1-0): 5.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K
    0.53 ERA (17 IP, 11 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 HR, 1 BB, 23 K). Last season at this level, he boasted a 2.87 ERA in 53.1 IP with a 65/11 K/BB ratio. This is how you get yourself noticed.
    I wonder if he becomes trade bait?
    RHP Michael Gomez: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, HR
    RHP David McKay: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    2.13 ERA (12.2 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 HR, 8 BB, 16 K)
    RHP Zach Greene: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
    4.91 ERA (14.2 IP, 15 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 3 HR, 8 BB, 17 K). May: 4 games, 4.1 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 HR, 2 BB, 5 K
    RHP Greg Weissert (S, 3): 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

    3.07 ERA (14.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 HR, 11 BB, 20 K). May: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K

    Somerset Patriots (21-11) (Outlasted Altoona, 12-8. Last night, they won 8-7. Offense is king this weekend. They own a 2.5 game lead over Hartford)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 0-for-4, SF, RBI, BB, 2 K
    .165/.286/.321 in 133 PA (3 doubles, 1 triple, 4 HR, 17 RBI, 20 R, 17 BB (12.8%), 35 K (26.3%), 13-for-14 SB). Last season, his BABIP was .325. So far this season, it sits at .189. I am not making excuses, but there is an element of bad luck in his profile.
    LF Elijah Dunham: 0-for-6, K
    I can’t walk my dogs for an hour without tripping on my shoelaces. Don’t worry about one random off game.
    C Josh Breaux: 1-for-5, 3 K
    .178/.221/.411 in 77 PA. He is 1-for-9 since coming off of the IL.
    CF Brandon Lockridge: 1-for-5, RS
    The top four hitters obviously had little to do with the breakout (2-for-20, RBI, RS). Lockridge is at .230/.302/.363 in 126 PA.
    RF Jeisson Rosario: 2-for-5, HR (2), RBI, 2 RS, K, SB (6)

    Rosario’s third straight multi-hit game. He is on a five-game hitting streak (9-for-22; 2 doubles, 1 triple, 1 HR). Remember that the Padres once signed him to a $1.85 million signing bonus. That doesn’t mean anything now – but it shows you that he had some believers when he was an international free agent.
    2B Derek Dietrich: 0-for-3, 3 RS, 2 BB, 3 K
    This is a nice little non-contact day, eh? In case you are wondering how he scored three runs, he was able to reach first base on one of the strikeouts.
    DH Michael Beltre: 3-for-5, RBI, 3 RS, K
    1B Chad Bell: 4-for-5, 2B (2), HR (3), 4 RBI, 2 RS, K
    Bell’s second 4-hit game of the season. He is at .297/.384/.469 in 73 PA with 17 runs batted in. I would consider that solid production.
    3B Oliver Dunn: 2-for-4, HR (1), 4 RBI, RS, BB, K, SB (1)
    Dunn made a couple of errors in the field. This is how you make up for that! He ended up one short of his personal best for RBI in a game.

    LHP Ken Waldichuk: (W, 4-0) 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
    1.26 ERA (28.2 IP, 16 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 2 HR, 10 BB, 46 K). Is Scranton calling? Probably. He tossed 79.1 innings at this level last year.

    RHP Steven Jennings: 1.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 HR
    Jennings was pitching well heading into this afternoon. To show you how well he was pitching: This line raises his ERA to 4.43.
    RHP Kyle Zurak: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
    14.1 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 6 BB, 19 K. Heading into this season, the 27-year-old only threw one inning since 2019 (COVID canceled 2020; one GCL inning in 2021). In High-A back in 2019, he compiled a 2.93 ERA in 61.1 IP with a 50/24 K/BB ratio.
    RHP Derek Craft: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Hudson Valley Renegades (15-17) (Lost to Aberdeen, 3-2. Aberdeen improves to an incredible 24-7 as they attempt to bury the division)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-5, 2 K
    Sweeney is at .210 with a .696 OPS. He is 8-for-42 in May.
    2B Cooper Bowman: 1-for-4, 2B (9), RS, BB, K
    Bowman is at .231 but with a .856 OPS thanks to compiling 27 walks and 13 extra-base hits in 28 games.
    DH Austin Wells: 3-for-5, 2B (7), RBI, K, SB (9)
    He is up to .330 with a 1.024 OPS. He is 25-for-25 in his career stealing bases. After games of 4/16, he was hitting .148/.273/.222. Since then, he is 28-for-70 (.400) with five doubles, six home runs, 12 RBI, 17 runs, 14 walks, and 16 strikeouts. Heading into today’s action, his wRC+ during this timeframe was 220.

    3B Tyler Hardman: 2-for-4, BB, SB (4)
    LF James Nelson: 1-for-4, 2B (3), BB, K, CS (1)
    Caught stealing home to end the game.
    CF Aldenis Sanchez: 1-for-4, K
    C Carlos Narvaez: 1-for-3, RS, HBP, CS (2)
    1B Spencer Henson: 0-for-4
    RF Pat DeMarco: 3-for-4, 2B (4), K
    DeMarco’s third 3+ hit game of 2022. He is 9-for-33 (.273) in May.

    RHP Blas Castano: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
    3.97 ERA (22.2 IP, 26 H, 12 R, 10 ER, 8 BB, 20 K)
    RHP Alex Mauricio: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, HR
    RHP Wellington Diaz: (L, 2-1) 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
    RHP Jhonatan Munoz: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

    Tampa Tarpons (14-18) (Lost to Dunedin, 5-3. They have fallen seven games behind Fort Myers, who are riding a 7-game winning streak)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 1-for-4, 2B (7), RBI, K, CS (5)
    .183/.226/.322 in 124 PA (7 doubles, 3 HR, 11 RBI, 14 R, 7 BB (5.6%), 36 K (29%), 6-for-11 SB). His numbers have improved slightly in May, especially in the power department (from .175/.221/.270 to .192/.232/.385).
    1B Anthony Garcia: 1-for-4, HR (7), RBI, RS, K
    Garcia’s first HR batting right-handed this season.To take that even further, it is also his first hit batting right-handed (1-for-21). Left-handed, he is hitting .270/.459/.587. Overall, he is at .214/.421/.488 in 114 PA (2 doubles, 7 HR, 15 RBI, 19 R, 29 BB, 39 K, 4-for-4 SB). Going back to his right-handed numbers: Lat season, he went 5-for-28 with two home runs, 11 walks, and 15 strikeouts. Obviously, his left side is his best side. Will he be able to develop the right-handed stroke?

    DH Anthony Seigler: 0-for-2, 2 BB
    Wells to Somerset and Seigler to Hudson Valley will remain the two moves to make. Seigler is at .257/.435/.471 in 92 PA (6 doubles, 3 HR, 13 RBI, 11 R, 22 BB (23.9%), 17 K (18.5%), 5-for-5 SB)
    2B Ben Cowles: 1-for-4, RS
    A little 4-game hitting streak (5-for-15). He is 4-for-11 with a home run since coming off of the injured list.
    RF Grant Richardson: 0-for-4, 4 K
    CF Alex Mejia: 2-for-4
    6-for-31 with two RBI for the 20-year-old.
    C Ben Rice: 1-for-4, 2B (1), RBI, K
    LF Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-4, 2 K, CS (2)
    3B Roberto Chirinos: 2-for-4, 3B (1), RS, 2 K
    9-for-34 in May with a double and triple. Defensively, he has played 2B (9 games), SS (4 games), and 3B (3 games).

    RHP Josue Panacual: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
    3.86 ERA (23.1 IP, 17 H, 14 R, 10 ER, 0 HR, 12 BB, 31 K). There is a lot to like in that profile. He is generating ground balls and striking hitters out. He is only 20 years old.
    RHP Trevor Holloway: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    9 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 1 HR, 6 BB, 9 K
    RHP Bailey Dees (L, 1-1): 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
    RHP Harold Cortijo: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K

    Your right about that. I thought he might have a chance to make it to us if he remained a reliever. If he puts up good numbers as a starter, i doubt he'll make it past the top 10-15

    It's remarkable that he can hold that kinda velo as a starter. He'd be a fun project to let Blake tinker with. Get him a sinker/cutter and a CU wow

    I used the trade simulator and came up with the following:

    Benintendi 2.7
    Melendez 37
    Total 39.7

    for
    Dominguez 19.3
    Gallo 16
    Higashioka 4
    Total 39.3

    I'd throw in Gil or Devi to help get it done. If we could get a deal done with those players i'd be all in.

    I'm just no sure why KC would trade Melendez though. He's one of the better young hitting C around and that the hardest position to fill offensively. Perez is 32-33 and having a guy to rotate C/DH duties with will probably keep him playing at a high level longer

    Anyone know how Melendez is defensively? I know his arm is really good but I don't know about the rest

    Waldichuk finally getting some recognition that he deserves. The only thing they got wrong is about him not having a high velo FB. He does, his 4 seam has been up to 98-99, he just doesn't use it as much as he does his sinker which is a mid 90's pitch.

    IMO, he's probably our best starting pitching spec right now. Thats saying a lot in this system

    SS Anthony Volpe: 0-for-4, SF, RBI, BB, 2 K
    .165/.286/.321 in 133 PA (3 doubles, 1 triple, 4 HR, 17 RBI, 20 R, 17 BB (12.8%), 35 K (26.3%), 13-for-14 SB). Last season, his BABIP was .325. So far this season, it sits at .189. I am not making excuses, but there is an element of bad luck in his profile.


    right now volpe is a bum!! he is suppose to be the heir apparent next year at ss... lol...

    For Reynolds, I am. For a legit, young (under 27 years old) ace, I am.

    Benintendi? No
