    Hey dayners...Gimme your take on this. Bleacher Report had an MLB Mock yesterday and they had us selecting Kumar Rocker. What do you think? Not exactly sure what he's been doing since the Mets negotiations went south.

    They were on some very heavy drugs when they mocked Rocker to us. He's starting to pitch in Indy ball, but last yr he needed surgery on his arm/ shoulder.

    Imo they are much better players on the board for us instead of Rocker. We're having an incredible luck drafting pitching in later rounds and getting tons of high ceiling pitchers from that strategy.

    Way, Warren, Wesneski, Waldichuk, Champlain ect

    Luis Gil will undergo Tommy John Surgery, which ends his 2022 season. He might be able to get back sometime in the second half of 2023 (think later than earlier).

    Gil hurt himself in a Triple-A start, which hurts his service time. However, if the Yankees ever need to open up a 40-man slot, they would need to promote Gil and place him on the 60-day injured list. At that point, he would accrue more MLB service time.

    Of course, if Chad Green needs to be shut down for the year, they will use up his 40-man roster slot first. They could also move Ben Rortvedt to the 60-day. Hence, Gil is trapped for now.

    Scranton Railriders (14-26) (Defeated Worcester, 7-6)

    CF Estevan Florial: 2-for-5, RBI, 2 K, CS (2)
    Game-winning RBI single in the top of the 9th (Scranton blew a 6-0 lead in this game). He is up to .273/.358/.438 in 137 PA. He is 6-for-17 during his mini four-game hitting streak with a double and a homer.
    i sure hope he's called up for tomorrows game
    SS Oswald Peraza: 0-for-4, RS, BB, 2 K
    1B Greg Bird: 3-for-4, 2B (5), HR (4), 2 RBI, RS
    Bird’s hot stretch continues (8-for-20 during his five-game hitting streak with three doubles and a pair of home runs).
    RF Phillip Evans: 0-for-4, 2 K
    2B-3B Derek Dietrich: 1-for-4, 2B (1), RS
    DH Ronald Guzman: 1-for-4, RS, 3 K
    While not as hot as Bird, Guzman is hitting well lately. He is 5-for-15 during a mini four-game hitting streak with a double.
    C Max McDowell: 1-for-3, 2B (5), RBI
    C Rob Brantly: 0-for-1, K
    LF Ender Inciarte: 1-for-3, RS, K
    LF Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-1, 2B (5), RS
    3B Armando Alvarez: 1-for-2, HR (3), SF, 3 RBI, RS
    10-for-50 in 17 games with three doubles and three home runs (.440 SLG). He was ejected (along with Worcester’s pitcher) in the 7th inning.
    2B Jose Peraza: 0-for-1

    LHP Manny Banuelos: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K
    It is always comforting when veteran depth pieces play well. Season: 2.35 ERA (30.2 IP, 22 H, 10 R, 8 ER, 2 HR, 12 BB, 30 K). Banuelos is such a fun story.

    RHP Reggie McClain: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
    LHP Trevor Lane: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, HR
    He allowed a grand slam, which allowed all three of his inherited runners from McClain to score.

    RHP Braden Bristo: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
    RHP Shelby Miller: (W, 2-2) 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K

    Somerset Patriots (25-12) (Ripped Reading, 10-1)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 1-for-5, 2B (6), 2 RBI, RS, K
    He has hit safely in six of his last seven games (three doubles in this time span).
    LF Elijah Dunham: 2-for-5, 2B (6), HR (4), 3 RBI, RS, K
    Since going 0-for-11 in a two-game stretch: 7-for-20 (3 doubles, 1 triple, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 3 BB). It takes a certain mindset to be a professional baseball player.

    C Josh Breaux: 2-for-3, HR (7), RBI, RS, BB
    He is tied with Derek Dietrich and Anthony Garcia for the organization’s home run lead. Breaux has seven home runs in 21 games.

    CF Brandon Lockridge: 0-for-4, K
    DH Jeisson Rosario: 0-for-3, RS, BB
    1B Chad Bell: 2-for-4, HR (4), RBI, 2 RS
    Bell is on a five-game hitting streak (10-for-21; 1 double, 2 HR, 8 RBI). Overall, he has driven home 21 runs in 23 games.
    2B Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-4, RBI, RS, K
    RF Michael Beltre: 2-for-3, 2 RS, BB, SB (10)
    May: 12-for-33 (2 doubles, 1 HR, 10 RBI, 12 R, 8 BB, 11 K, 6-for-6 SB). This is the Beltre we saw at this level last season.
    3B Oliver Dunn: 2-for-4, 2B (4), 2 RBI, RS, K
    Dunn has four doubles, one triple, two home runs, and 11 RBI in 30 plate appearances this season. He can play multiple positions (has experience at 2B/SS/3B/LF, though most of his games are at second base and third base).

    RHP Luis Medina: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
    4.43 ERA (22.1 IP, 16 H, 15 R, 11 ER, 2 HR, 18 BB, 25 K). His erraticness has allowed him to throw only 22.1 innings over seven starts.

    LHP Josh Maciejewski (W, 2-0): 3.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K

    2.63 ERA (24 IP, 18 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 2 HR, 8 BB, 34 K)
    RHP Carlos Espinal: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

    Hudson Valley Renegades (17-19) (Blasted Brooklyn, 12-2)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-4, RBI, 2 RS, 2 BB, 2 K
    Just like other shortstop prospects in the system, it has been a struggle for Sweeney. In April, he hit .231/.318/.538, showing off some pop (five extra-base hits, including three home runs). In May, life hasn’t been as fun. It is good to see him reach base three times tonight.
    CF Everson Pereira: 3-for-5, RS, BB, K
    Pereira’s second three-hit game of 2022. The extra-base hits are lacking – I won’t sugarcoat that. I just hope this is the start of a hot streak. If it is, the doubles, triples, and home runs will come
    .
    2B Cooper Bowman: 1-for-5, RBI, RS, BB, 3 K
    Bowman’s hitting streak reaches five (6-for-22). He has 28 walks in 32 games (11 walks in 30 games during his 2021 debut).
    3B Tyler Hardman: 1-for-4, RS, BB
    C Anthony Seigler: 2-for-4, 2B (1), 2 RBI, 3 RS, HBP
    Seigler’s 2022 debut at this level (as mentioned many times, he played here in 2021).
    DH Spencer Henson: 1-for-4, HR (3), 2 RBI, 2 RS, BB, K
    LF James Nelson: 2-for-3, HR (1, grand slam), 4 RBI, RS, BB, HBP, K
    This is certainly the definition of a busy night.
    RF Aldenis Sanchez: 2-for-4, RBI, BB, SB (13)
    Back-to-back multi-hit games. 13-for-14 stealing bases.

    1B Eric Wagaman: 1-for-5, K

    RHP Beck Way (W, 2-1) 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K
    A rough start last time out (8 R in 2.2 IP) jumped his ERA to 6.86. This helps bring that down. Season: 5.54 ERA (26 IP, 24 H, 16 R, 16 ER, 4 HR, 8 BB, 35 K). There is a lot to like there
    .
    RHP Jhonatan Munoz: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
    LHP Nelson Alvarez: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
    RHP Ryan Miller: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
    As noted yesterday, the Yankees just signed him. He was thrown right into the mix tonight.

    Tampa Tarpons (14-21) (Game suspended in the 7th. Looks like the stadium lost power or something. Tampa leads, 4-0. Below is the boxscore with a few notes)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 0-for-3, RS, BB, K
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-3, 2B (11), 2 RBI, BB
    He retakes the organizational lead with his 11th double. He hasn’t been perfect in May – he simply has played better.

    DH Antonio Gomez: 0-for-2, 2 BB, K
    1B Anthony Garcia: 0-for-3, BB, K, 2 SB (7)
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 0-for-3, BB, 2 K
    LF Grant Richardson: 2-for-3, 2B (4), RS, HBP, K, SB (4)
    C Ben Rice: 0-for-4, RS, K
    RF Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-3, 2B (2), 2 RBI
    2B Luis Santos: 2-for-2, 2B (4), RS, HBP

    RHP Chandler Champlain: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K
    2.08 ERA (30.1 IP, 24 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 3 HR, 7 BB, 38 K). Dominance. He should get to Hudson Valley this season
    .
    RHP Kevin Milam: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Waldichuk had a hell of a AAA debut. 5.1 IN 3H 1E 1R 2BB 9Ks which caused his ERA to go up to 1.69 . 64ks in 39.1 IP

    He's very close to being MLB ready

    Dom had a hell of a day as well. He has a single, double and triple in the first game and another single and a HR in the 2nd game. He's leading the system in doubles and his avg is up to a pretty respectable .261. Not bad for a kid that's 19 and on avg is 2-3 yrs younger than the avg player in his league

    SS Oswald Peraza: 1-for-5, 2 K
    .200/.270/.344 in 137 PA with 10 walks (7.3%) and 32 strikeouts (23.4%). He is a speedster with a .236 BABIP. One has to figure that the contact he is making will eventually lead to more hits.

    LF Miguel Andujar: 1-for-5, RBI
    Last 6 games: 7-for-24 with a home run.
    DH Greg Bird: 1-for-5, RS, K
    .196/.322/.382 in 121 PA. 6-game hitting streak (9-for-25)
    RF Phillip Evans: 0-for-3, RS, HBP, K
    3B Derek Dietrich: 1-for-4, RS, 2 K
    2B Jose Peraza: 2-for-4, 2B (5), 3 RBI, RS
    The veteran utility player is 15-for-55 (.273/.333/.345) in May.
    1B Ronald Guzman: 0-for-3, RS, HBP, K
    C David Freitas: 4-for-4, HR (2), 2 RBI, RS
    This is Freitas’ 843rd career minor league game. He has three 4+ hit games (he had a 5-hit game back on 6/6/2012). I just love players who grind it out like this for their brief moments of MLB glory.
    CF Ryan LaMarre: 0-for-2, K
    PH-CF Evan Alexander: 0-for-1, BB, K

    LHP Ken Waldichuk: 5.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, HR
    Waldichuk allowed a leadoff home run in his Triple-A debut before cruising along. He now has 55 strikeouts in 34 innings this season. Pure dominance. I am not suggesting that the Yankees will trade him but you can bet that teams will be asking about him at the deadline.

    RHP Ryan Weber: (W, 2-1) 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
    Nice job by the veteran – he stranded Waldichuk’s baserunner in the 6th.

    RHP Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, HR
    4.32 ERA (16.2 IP, 10 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 3 HR, 12 BB, 23 K)

    Somerset Patriots (26-12) (Cruised past Reading, 4-1. Despite their dominance, Hartford is being pesky with their 24-15 start)

    SS Anthony Volpe: 2-for-3, HR (5), RBI, RS, K, SB (18), K, Ejection (naughty, naughty!)
    5-game hitting streak (7-for-18; 3 doubles, HR, 4 RBI, 4 BB, 4 SB). Overall, his line has improved from .165/.286/.321 to .197/.316/.378 during the streak.

    SS Oliver Dunn: 1-for-1, 2B (5), RBI
    Dunn is hitting .462 (12-for-26) with five doubles, one triple, two home runs and 12 runs batted in. If you figure that out over 600 plate appearances, you would have historical numbers!
    RF Brandon Lockridge: 1-for-3, RS, BB, K
    .230/.295/.348 in 149 PA. He has hit safely in eight of his last nine games.
    DH Josh Breaux: 1-for-4, 2 K
    .204/.260/.473 in 100 PA (4 doubles, 7 HR, 14 RBI, 11 R, 6 BB, 33 K). He is at .241/.313/.517 since coming off of the injured list (seven games).
    CF Jeisson Rosario: 1-for-4, 2 K
    LF Blake Perkins: 1-for-3, SF, RBI, K, SB (12)
    He is hanging onto that over 1.000 OPS (.287/.389/.617 in 113 PA).

    3B Chad Bell: 0-for-4, 3 K
    C Rodolfo Duran: 1-for-3, 2B (2), RS, BB
    5-game hitting streak (6-for-20; 2 doubles, 2 HR)
    2B Jesus Bastidas: 0-for-4, K
    1B Max Burt: 1-for-2, 2B (4), SF, RBI, RS

    RHP Jhony Brito: (W, 4-2) 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
    1.24 ERA (36.1 IP, 28 H, 8 R, 5 ER, 2 HR, 11 BB, 30 K). He faced the same team earlier in the week. In that start: 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K.

    RHP Carson Coleman: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    His dominance continues. Since promotion: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Overall: 0.40 ERA (22.1 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 10 BB, 30 K)
    RHP Steven Jennings: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
    4.07 ERA (24.1 IP, 22 H, 12 R, 11 ER, 4 HR, 3 BB, 25 K). He allowed six of those runs in one outing.
    RHP Emmanuel Ramirez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
    RHP Derek Craft (S, 3): 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K

    17-for-20 stealing bases.
    1B Tyler Hardman: 0-for-3, 2 K
    C Anthony Seigler: 1-for-1, 2 RS, 2 BB
    3-for-5 with a double, five runs scored, and a pair of walks since his promotion. Overall, he is hitting .259/.450/.457 in 109 PA (7 doubles, 3 HR, 15 RBI, 17 R, 27 BB (24.8%), 18 K (16.5%), 5-for-5 SB)

    Game 2 (Lost, 3-1. The compiled only one hit in this game)

    SS Trey Sweeney: 0-for-3, K
    Sweeney has struggled since a hot start (9-for-60 in May with four doubles, five walks, and 21 strikeouts). Everyone has a bad month (I’ve had a bad 48 years), so we’ll where he goes from here.
    CF Everson Pereira: 1-for-3, 3B (3), RS, K
    Pereira entered this game with an 18-game extra-base hit drought. He has seven hits in his last three games to increase his numbers to .264/.710 OPS.

    DH Cooper Bowman: 0-for-3, RBI
    28 walks (19%)/30 strikeouts (20.4%) in 147 PA.

    RHP Blas Castano: (L, 0-4) 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 2 HR
    A rare minor league complete game. Season: 4.08 ERA (28.2 IP, 30 H, 15 R, 13 ER, 2 HR, 8 BB, 28 K)


    Tampa Tarpons (17-21) (Won two games over St. Lucie. They are playing a little better but Fort Myers (25-13) refuses to go cold).

    Game 1 (Won completion of last night’s suspended game, 5-0)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 0-for-4, RS, BB, 2 K
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 3-for-4, 2B (11), 3B (1), 2 RBI, RS, BB
    He retakes the organizational lead with his 11th double. He hasn’t been perfect in May – he simply has played better.

    DH Antonio Gomez: 0-for-3, 2 BB, 2 K
    1B Anthony Garcia: 1-for-4, RBI, BB, K, 2 SB (7)
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 0-for-4, BB, 2 K
    LF Grant Richardson: 3-for-4, 2B (4), RS, HBP, K, SB (4)
    4-game hitting streak (7-for-16; 2 doubles). He is at .210/.309/.296 in 94 PA overall.
    C Ben Rice: 0-for-5, RS, K
    RF Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-4, 2B (2), 2 RBI, K
    2B Luis Santos: 2-for-3, 2B (4), RS, HBP

    RHP Chandler Champlain: (W, 1-2) 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K
    2.08 ERA (30.1 IP, 24 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 3 HR, 7 BB, 38 K). Dominance. He should get to Hudson Valley this season.

    RHP Kevin Milam: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    RHP Zach Messinger: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K
    3.74 ERA (21.2 IP, 19 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 2 HR, 8 BB, 34 K). Last four outings: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 12 K
    RHP Trevor Holloway: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.

    Game 2 (Won, 6-2)

    SS Alexander Vargas: 1-for-4, RS, 2 K
    .193/.238/.307 in 151 PA (7 doubles, 3 HR, 13 RBI, 19 R, 9 BB (5.96%), 47 K (31.1%), 8-for-13 SB)
    CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-4, HR (4), 2 RBI, RS, 2 K
    .261/.315/.442 in 153 PA (11 doubles, 1 triple, 4 HR, 20 RBI, 24 R, 10 BB, 50 K). He is at .299/.382/.567 in May with six multi-hit games (17 games played).
    C Antonio Gomez: 2-for-4
    Gomez needed this kind of day. It represents his first multi-hit game of 2022. Hopefully, whatever they worked on with him during his absence will get him on track.
    1B Anthony Garcia: 0-for-3, RS, BB, 3 K
    .224/.407/.439 in 140 PA (2 doubles, 7 HR, 20 RBI, 23 R, 32 BB (22.9%), 50 K (35.7%), 7-for-8 SB. He is 25-for-27 in his career stealing bases)
    3B Marcos Cabrera: 1-for-3, HR (6), 2 RBI, RS, BB, K
    .207/.308/.422 in 133 PA (5 doubles, 1 triple, 6 HR, 13 RBI, 14 R, 16 BB (12%), 56 K (42.1%), 8-for-11 SB). In his first exposure to a full-season league, he is hitting for some power and taking walks – the strikeout rate? Well, that needs to be worked on.

    LF Alex Mejia: 1-for-4, 3 K
    DH Connor Cannon: 1-for-3, HR (1), RBI, RS, BB, K
    Cannon’s first HR as a member of the Yankees’ organization. He has 14 in 51 minor league games.
    2B Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-4, K
    RF Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-3, RS, BB, K, SB (1)

    RHP Josue Panacual: (W, 1-2) 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
    3.38 ERA (29.1 IP, 23 H, 15 R, 11 ER, 14 BB, 37 K). A solid season thus far for the 20-year old.
    RHP Bailey Dees: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
    9.1 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 0 HR, 4 BB, 10 K

    Florial was 0-3 against Kopech, and I just don't understand why he hasn't done better up until now. He's got a good eye, doesn't chanse pitches out of the zone and lays off when he needs to. He did this last season in the few at bats I saw him in. This is simply not a player that looks overmatched even though that's what his stats keep telling us.

    I’m surprised Volpe is still that high after the start to his year



    Ignorance is bliss

    Agreed. He has a 5 game git streak with two multi-hut games though. I am hoping he is breaking out. It seems like several players are starting to turn it around finally, including Volpe, Dominguez, and Breaux

He did this last season in the few at bats I saw him in. This is simply not a player that looks overmatched even though that's what his stats keep telling us.
    Two of his three outs were line outs, the third a K. A lot of regular Yanks looked overmatched against Kopech.

    This is a good point. He actually barreled up those pitches even though they turned into outs. We really need to see Flo for at least a month

    I could be mistaken but pretty sure Volpe moved up in the rankings. I'm not sure if Volpe is going to recover this year. It seems like what is going on in the majors has filtered down into the minors as well.

    I have been reading that he's still hitting the ball hard and very well and is still a standout on the field. His BABIP is incredibly low, like below .240 last i saw. He's hitting the ball hard at people. It appears that most of the people that have soured on him are Yanks fans. Also, that jump from high A to AA is a very tough adjustment.

    Peraza has had a couple 3 hit games lately, I think you're going to see him start clicking soon.

    Nice to see Wells and Waldichuk get some recognition. What i don't understand though is why Waldi hasn't gotten more attention. Since the beginning of last yr, he has better numbers than a lot of pitcher ranked way above him.
