DoTF: Deivi Struggles, But Farm Goes Undefeated (Again)

Here are the promotions that we all expected. Quite a few roster changes, as you could have guessed:

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders are 24-11 after tonight’s 12-6 victory over the Syracuse Mets. It was an ugly, ugly game. They walked 13 batters – 13! – and every Scranton pitcher had at least one walk. Still, an offensive barrage with 16 hits led to 12 runs, and, well, that was that.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Deivi Garcia: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 5 R, 4 BB, 1 K – 43% of his pitches were strikeswhat has happened to our collective son…he has 23 walks in 23.1 innings in Triple-A…it’s not good
  • In Relief: RHP Brian Keller: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 3 K – 55% of his pitches were strikes
  • In Relief: RHP Albert Abreu: 2.0 IP, zeros, 2 BB, 5 K – 61% of his pitches were strikes…walks and a bunch of strikeouts, that’s the Abreu experience
  • In Relief: LHP Trevor Lane: 1.0 IP, zeros, 1 BB– 50% of his pitches were strikes
  • In Relief: RHP Kyle Barracough: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 2 K – 47% of his pitches were strikes…earned his 4th win
  • In Relief: RHP Braden Bristo: 1.0 IP, zeros, 1 BB, 2 K– 61% of his pitches were strikes
  • Florial Watch: CF Estevan Florial: 3-5. 4 R, 2 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI – great game for Florial, who didn’t strike out…hitting .195 at Triple-A now
  • Red Hot Alert: 2B Hoy Jun Park: 4-4, 2 R, 1 3B, 3 RBI – the middle-infielder stays scorching, scorching hot
  • Multi-Hit Alert: C Robinson Chirinos: 2-4, 2B
  • Leftovers: Socrates Brito had a hit and a run…the bottom of the lineup, including Chirinos, went 7-20 with 4 RBI and 2 walks, which will very much get the job done

Double-A Somerset Patriots

The Patriots are 23-13 after a 10-1 thrashing of the Flying Squirrels. They had 16 hits, allowed just 4 and struck out 17 of their opponents. A totally dominant performance once again from them.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Glenn Otto: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 14 K– 71% of his pitches were strikes…absolutely dominant performance
  • In Relief: LHP J.P. Sears: 1.0 IP, zeros, 2 K– 75% of his pitches were strikes
  • In Relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K– 56% of his pitches were strikes…okay performance after today’s demotion from Triple-A

  • Leftovers: A bunch of other hits…Oswaldo Cabrera and Matt Pita each had one..Michael Beltre and Isiah Gilliam had 2 apiece

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

The ‘Gades are 21-14 after a 6-5 victory over the BlueClaws. They were down 4-0 early in ths one, came back, blew the lead in the 9th, and won it on a walk off HR from Josh Breaux. Decent game.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Jhony Brito: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 4 K – 65% of his pitches were strikes…rough outing for Brito, who has otherwise been very good
  • In Relief: RHP Barrett Loseke: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 7 K– 59% of his pitches were strikes
  • In Relief: RHP Elvis Peguero: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 K– 76% of his pitches were strikes..blew the save, earned his 3rd win…baseball, man

Game 66: Now That’s More Like It


Game 67: Cole spins a gem and Sánchez plays hero


  1. HenryKrinkle

    They should stretch out Nick Nelson to start. With Garcia struggling, and Schmidt on the shelf, it makes sense.

  2. chip56

    Luis Gil and Luis Medina now within realistic distance of coming to the majors this year. That’s a good thing.

    I wonder if Deivi is just in a funk because he thought he would be given a shot this year?

    I would rather see Park up here than Odor. Truthfully, I would rather see Kyle Holder, Cito Culver, or Stephen Drew than Odor.

  3. Cary

    The next Yankee window could conceivably open in 2023. Let’s hope Cashman doesn’t mismanage the future by selling low on some of these prospects that other rebuilding teams are going to want an exchange for players that might help The Yankees at the Major League level.

    This year’s Major League club would need to catch Houston in order to become the second wildcard team. Houston is 10 games over .500 with a differential of +89. The Yankees are two games over .500 with a differential of -6. Houston is playing consistent baseball. The Yankees are far from that this season. The Yankees also have so many holes and problems to fix and address that it’s going to take a number of these talented minor league players to come anywhere near plugging some of these holes and then the Yankees basically need to climb Mount Everest to catch Houston who is not going to be letting up. Houston is going to play steady, consistent baseball in a weaker division.

  4. Is Donny Sands becoming a guy? I know his defense behind the plate was always the focus, but it’s nice to see a catcher hitting for some power and barely striking out in AA.
