DoTF: Catching up with this weekend’s action

We didn’t get to run any DoTF features this weekend, but let’s catch up with the organization’s top prospects and how their weekends went.

Hitters

  • 3B Gio Urshela: 3-4, 2 R, 2B — First rehab game for Gio, who will be a welcome return to the Yankees lineup perhaps as soon as this week.
  • CF Estevan Florial: 3-5, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K — .208/.302/.384 (83 wRC+) with the RailRiders this season, along with a 30.9 percent strikeout rate. He was called up to the majors over the weekend.
  • C Donny Sands: 2-6, 2 R, RBI, BB, 2 K — Quietly having a very good season offensively…Posted a 108 wRC+ in Double-A across 215 plate appearances, and now has a 122 wRC+ in 84 PA at Triple-A.
  • SS Oswald Peraza: 4-15, 2 R, 2 RBI 4 K — Rebounded after going 0-for-5 with four strikeouts on Friday. Sits at .296/.347/.473 (122 wRC+) for the Patriots.
  • SS Oswaldo Cabrera: 3-9, R, 2 K
  • SS Anthony Volpe: 1-4, 2 R, 4 BB, 2 K, SB, CS — Combined line with Tampa and Hudson Valley is so pleasing: .304/.441/.615 (179 wRC+), 20 home runs, and 28 stolen bases.
  • C Josh Breaux: 2-8, R, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 K — Turning things around at Double-A…Hitting .290/.324/.484 (113 wRC+) in his last eight games after going 0-for-12 in previous three games.
  • C Austin Wells: 1-7, R, HR, RBI, BB, 4 K — 31 percent strikeout rate with Hudson Valley after recording just a 20.7 percent mark in Tampa. Still hitting well overall with HV (124 wRC+), but bat-to-ball skills are always something to watch.
  • LF Jake Sanford: 1-6, R, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 K — Hitting .188 in last 32 at-bats…Had gotten off to a really good start with the Renegades (.316/.365/.506 in first 79 AB), but may have been a .412 BABIP fueled performance.
  • CF Jasson Dominguez: 1-4, 2 R, K — .245/.311/.358 in 119 PA for Tampa and has a 31.9 percent strikeout rate. Bit of an underwhelming professional debut season, but he’s just 18.
  • SS Trey Sweeney: 3-11, 4 R, 2 3B, RBI, 3 BB, 3 K — Hitting .320/.469/.760 (215 wRC+) in his last eight games…Took a little time to get going, but as expected, a collegiate bat should be able to handle the competition in Tampa pretty well.
  • 2B Cooper Bowman: 3-9, 2 R, 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 K, SB — First two homers for him with Single-A Tampa
  • OF Ryder Green: 0-8, R, BB, 4 K, SB — 30.9 percent strikeout rate for the Tarpons this season
  • 1B/DH Tyler Hardman: 5-11, 7 R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI, 2 K — First professional home run for the fifth rounder
  • SS Alexander Vargas: 1-5, R, RBI — .284/.364/.422 (112 wRC+) in the FCL this season
  • C Antonio Gomez: 1-4, R, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K — Backstop is raking in the FCL…Owns a .298/.411/.468 (140 wRC+) in 112 PA. Striking out a bit more than you’d like to see (27.7 percent), but it’s an impressive output from the 19 year-old catcher.

Pitchers

  • LHP JP Sears: 6.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K — RailRiders didn’t complete the no-hitter behind him. Sears is a guy who typically racks up strikeouts, but not in this outing. He has 85 Ks in 65.1 innings between Double- and Triple-A this year.
  • RHP Jhony Brito: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2 HR — First bad start in Double-A for Brito…He had given up just six runs (four earned) in his first 19 innings at the level (1.89 ERA).
  • RHP Randy Vasquez: 6.0 IP, 8 H, 0 R, BB, 8 K — Breakout season continues…2.09 ERA, 111 strikeouts, 2 homers, and 31 walks in 86 innings between Tampa and Hudson Valley.
  • RHP Deivi García: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 7 K — Encouraging performance…Had finished first four innings with just one hit, no runs, two walks, and six strikeouts…Nick Nelson inherited two of his runners and allowed them to score.
  • RHP Shawn Semple: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K — Nice bounce back outing. Semple gave up five runs in five frames in his previous start.
  • RHP Mitch Spence: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K — Given up eight runs over ten innings in his last two starts after posting a 3.00 ERA in first 13 starts.
  • RHP Hayden Wesneski: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2 HR — 1.16 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his last 23.1 innings pitched
  • RHP Beck Way: 4.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K — Dominating in Tampa…0.42 ERA in last 21.2 innings…allowed just seven hits and has struck out 26. Control could be better (6 walks and 4 hit batters), but he’s overwhelmed his opponents.
