    Scranton Railriders (57-52) (Lost a tough one to Worcester, 7-6)

    CF Estevan Florial: 0-for-4, BB, 3 K
    2B Oswald Peraza: 2-for-5, HR (16), RBI, 3 RS, 2 K, SB (28)
    .257/.325/445 in 375 PA (16 doubles, 16 HR, 43 RBI, 49 R, 29 BB, 87 K, 28-for-31 SB)

    SS Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-3, SAC, HBP, RS, K
    18-game on-base streak (at least one hit in 17 of those games).

    DH Ben Rortvedt: 1-for-5, 2B (4), RBI, 3 K
    C Rob Brantly: 2-for-4, 2 2B (7), 2 RBI, RS
    LF Armando Alvarez: 2-for-3, 2B (13), RBI, RS, K
    Alvarez has doubled in six of his last seven games. He is hitting .266/.304/.508 in 191 PA.
    RF Blake Perkins: 0-for-2, BB, HBP, K
    3B Phillip Evans: 1-for-4, RBI, K
    1B Chad Bell: 0-for-4, 2 K

    RHP Mitch Spence: 4 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 2 HR
    The home runs did him in but at least one likes the strikeouts. This is his first clunker at this level (three starts), so no big deal.
    RHP Carlos Espinal: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
    RHP Ron Marinaccio: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 3 K
    RHP Jimmy Cordero: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K
    Cordero has ten strikeouts in five August innings. Overall, he owns a 2.25 ERA in 24 IP (17 H, 8 R, 6 ER, 1 HR, 7 BB, 31 K)

    Somerset Patriots (65-41; 20-16 in the second half) (Lost to Hartford, 9-2. I will continue to remind everyone that they are in the playoffs regardless of their second half)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4, 2B (27), K
    Volpe’s modest hitting streak reaches five (7-for-21). This breaks his mini 6-game stretch without an extra-base hit.

    DH Everson Pereira: 0-for-4, 3 K
    C Austin Wells: 0-for-3, RS, BB, 3 K
    RF Elijah Dunham: 1-for-4, HR (14), 2 RBI, RS, K
    11-game hitting streak. He is 14-for-39 (.359) during the streak.

    3B Andres Chaparro: 0-for-3, BB, K
    CF Brandon Lockridge: 0-for-3, K
    LF Jeisson Rosario: 0-for-3
    2B Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-3
    1B Mickey Gasper: 0-for-3, K

    RHP Matt Sauer: (L, 0-1) 4.1 IP, 9 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 3 HR
    This is not the Double-A debut Sauer wanted, but there will be more opportunities. To his credit, he allowed eight runs in his first two innings so he did settle in a bit. In MLB, that would be looked at with an eye roll – in the minors, you like to see stuff like that.
    RHP Steven Jennings: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
    LHP Matt Minnick: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    2.36 ERA (45.2 IP, 19 H, 13 R, 12 ER, 5 HR, 18 BB, 48 K). An underrated and underappreciated season.

    Hudson Valley Renegades (57-49; 23-17 in the second half) (Defeated Aberdeen, 3-1)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-2, RS, 2 BB
    Sweeney isn’t hitting for much average in August (.205) but has flashed on-base skills (.367 OBP thanks to nine walks) and some pop (.436 SLG)
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 0-for-2, SF, RBI, RS, BB, 2 SB (10), CS (1)

    He doesn’t always need to earn a hit to impact a game. The sacrifice fly broke up a 1-1 game in the 8th. He is 8-for-9 stealing bases over his last eight games.
    1B T.J. Rumfield: 0-for-3, SF, 2 RBI
    Productive outs!
    3B Tyler Hardman: 0-for-3, BB, K
    C Anthony Seigler: 1-for-3, 2B (12), K
    Since promotion: .233/.398/.372 in 226 PA. His ability to take walks has somewhat covered up his 3-for-34 slump.

    RF Grant Richardson: 0-for-3, 2 K
    2B Ben Cowles: 0-for-3, K
    DH Carlos Narvaez: 0-for-2, BB
    LF Aldenis Sanchez: 2-for-2, RS, BB
    .248/.354/.298 in 308 PA with 29 stolen bases in 37 attempts.

    RHP Richard Fitts: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, HR
    Impressive High-A debut. He will get to Somerset sometime in 2023. I have said it all year: His ERA down in Tampa was misleading.

    LHP Edgar Barclay (W, 5-2): 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K
    1.75 ERA (51.1 IP, 34 H, 12 R, 10 ER, 0 HR, 15 BB, 63 K). He has only come out of the bullpen since returning from his injury, but they have given him extended outings.

    Tampa Tarpons (51-54; 24-15 in the second half) (Defeated Dunedin, 5-3)

    CF Spencer Jones: 0-for-5, 2 K
    These nights happen to everyone, from Hall of Famers to utility players to first-round draft picks and beyond. Tomorrow is a new day.
    DH Antonio Gomez: 0-for-5, K
    16-game hitting streak snapped.
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 0-for-3, BB, 2 K
    C Ben Rice: 0-for-2, RS, BB, K
    LF Christopher Familia: 1-for-3, RS, BB, SB (2)
    Since promotion: .224/.328/.397 in 67 plate appearances.
    1B Connor Cannon: 0-for-4, 3 K
    SS Roberto Chirinos: 0-for-3, RS, BB, 2 K
    RF Raimfer Salinas: 2-for-3, HR (4), 3 RBI, 2 RS
    Salinas, dormant with sporadic playing time for much of the season (he has played in 54 of the team’s 105 games), has homered in back-to-back games.
    2B Luis Santos: 2-for-4, RBI, K, SB (2)

    LHP Joel Valdez: 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
    Since promotion: 8.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 HR, 4 BB, 14 K
    RHP Harold Cortijo: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
    RHP Leam Mendez (W, 1-0): 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, HR

    FCL Yankees (34-13) (Defeated the Blue Jays, 7-2. They are winning at the rate the MLB team did in the first half. Let’s hope they don’t look the second-half Yankees anytime soon)

    2B Jared Serna compiled three hits (including his 8th double), two runs scored, and his 16th stolen base…1B Jesus Rodriguez continued his hot season, going 2-for-3 with two runs batted in and a walk. He stole his 8th base. Season: .364/.465/.607 in 127 PA…CF Daury Arias and C Agustin Ramirez each contributed a pair of hits, as the top four hitters in the lineup went 9-for-16. Ramirez, who tripled and stole two bases, is up to 44 RBI in 38 games.

    LHP Brock Selvidge: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
    The 19-year-old owns a 2.79 ERA in 38.2 IP (32 H, 15 R, 12 ER, 2 HR, 15 BB, 49 K). He will turn 20 in two weeks.

    DSL Bombers (25-27) and DSL Yankees (25-26)

    The Bombers won 8-6. The Yankees won, 9-8, by scoring three runs in the bottom of the 9th.

    For the Yankees, Roderick Arias hit a pinch-hit single in that 9th inning. He drove home a run and scored a run…C Diomedes Hernandez had the biggest blow – a game-winning two-run double…SS Keiner Delgado, earning some buzz thanks to an insane stat line, went 2-for-4 with his 4th triple and 31st stolen base…

    For the Bombers, C Engelth Urena clubbed his second home run of the season…1B Edinson Duran tripled and drove home four runs.

    According to an audio clip posted 2 days ago, Boone has said there are no plans to call up Peraza. I suspect that probably applies to both Flo and Cabrera as well. This while they go 10-16 in their last 26 games. Toronto, which is second in the division has gone 16-9 in the same time frame.

    Manny was a green front leg hitter. So was Sheffield. The kid has the lefty version of that.

    And damn, he's smooth in the field.

    He’s also 12 and is supposedly further along then Roderick was at this age. He’s definitely impressive to say the least.

    somehow that didn't quite click in my head, that a kid connect to the 25 class would be 12-13, but they are.

    U have no idea how silly I feel that i'm looking at video of a kid that age and trying to project what this kid is going to be when he's twice as old, lol. I know that it actually some ones real job to watch for 12yr olds and try to figure out how good a 12yr old is going to be, but it's a bit silly to me. At least at 15-16 u can project a little bit...

    trust me I love the news, I'm just saying

    It's a crazy job! I am guessing you are looking at lever length. Coordination. Growth potential. Hip torque... And projecting that onto the frame of a grown man.
    I wonder if they are using genetic analysis and crazy stuff like that

    Definitely a crazy job to say the least. But definitely a fascinating one. All of mayea, Roderick and Dominguez were 12 when Yankees signed them. This kid may be 12 but has hit balls over the wall.

    Absolutely, it's crazy to think that it starts that young, but It does. I just can't imagine going to my local little league and trying to figure out which 12yr old I think could be worth 5m. I completely realize that it's way more complicated than that.

    Then again thinking back, everyone realize by 10-11 that if step bro stayed healthy he was going to be a pro something and he was

    Agreed but he does look super impressive. Anything is possible though so who knows?

    oh, agreed, he looks incredible..

    The last thing I'm trying to do is say something negative, thats not it at all. I just can't imagine doing that job and trying to project a kid that age, to what he'll be athletically as an adult

    It's a crap shoot, sure you can see if a one kid is going to be an elite athlete at that age, but there are alot of kids that develop later than others. You see quite a few Dermis Garcia's or Sano's that are massively advanced for a 12-15 yr old that don't have much projection left after 16-17. Then you have guys Peraza( not the best example) that signs for a low bonus and after they develop, have 3 times the athletic ability you thought they did at 15-16

    I find truly remarkable that they can see these kids like Franco, Vladdy JR ect at 12 and see how they project that far down the road and be accurate

    My dad is 6'8 and I was a late grower and was about 5'4 at 13. I went and had that analysis done and they we're dead on. They said I would end up 6'3-6'4 and would have a huge growth spurt at 16. 9 inches in 9 months and i'm 6'3 and a half. If they had those tools 25yrs ago, I'd be very surprised if they weren't using some kind of analysis on kid they are getting ready to hand 6-7 figures to
