DoTF: Jasson goes deep

The Martian lands.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

New names, same results. The RailRiders improved to 41-21, beating Worcester 7-2 (box score). The win came with a number of new players on the roster as a result of the organizational reshuffle following the Yankees’ COVID-19 outbreak.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Glenn Otto: 4.1 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K — 59 of 93 pitches were strikes (63%)…This was his first Triple-A start after his promotion from Somerset. Had a 3.17 ERA and 103:14 K:BB ratio in 65.1 Double-A frames beforehand.
  • In relief: RHP Reggie McClain: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K — 27 of 44 pitches were strikes (61%)…0.58 ERA in 31 innings this season.
  • In relief: RHP Greg Weissert: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K — His Triple-A ERA now mirrors his Double-A ERA this year (0.71 in 12.2 innings at each level)
  • In relief: RHP Stephen Rydings: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K — 11 of 16 pitches were strikes (69%)…Strikeouts haven’t carried over from Double-A yet, where he had 30 in 19 frames. Has 6 in 5 Triple-A innings.
  • Hitting star: CF Estevan Florial: 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K — Now has 12 homers in 238 plate appearances in the minors this year
  • Promoted: C Donny Sands: 3-5, R, HR, RBI — Replaced Rob Brantly, who’s up in the big leagues. Sands had 10 homers and a 109 wRC+ in 215 plate appearances for Somerset prior to the call-up.
  • Promoted: DH Matt Pita: 2-4, R, HR, 3 RBI, 2 K — Hadn’t homered in 105 trips to the plate for the Patriots this year before this dinger.
  • Leftovers: LF-CF Ryan LaMarre, 3B Armando Alvarez, 2B Andrew Velazquez, and SS Kyle Holder tallied a single a piece.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

The Patriots lost to Richmond, 6-4 (box score). The Flying Squirrels rallied against Somerset’s bullpen once starter Luis Medina exited. Somerset is now 40-23.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Medina: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K — 44 of 81 pitches were strikes (54%)…Unraveled for him in the sixth inning, when he walked the only three batters he faced. Two of those runs came in to score after he departed.

  • Leftovers: RF Michael Beltre tallied two hits, including his 11th homer of the year…Rare quiet night for 2B Diego Castillo, who was 0-for-5.

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

The ‘Gades took a wild one from Wilmington, 8-7 (box score). Hudson Valley scored four in the top of the ninth to grab an 8-6 lead, then held off the Blue Rocks in the bottom half.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Mitch Spence: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 8 K — 52 of 84 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • In relief: RHP Nick Ernst: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K — 31 of 56 pitches were strikes (55%)

  • Breakout game: SS Anthony Volpe: 4-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 1 RBI — Was 2-for-11 since his promotion from Tampa entering this one. This is much more like it.
  • Power surge: DH Josh Breaux: 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K — Second-round pick in 2018 is hitting .386/.438/.886 with six homers this month…He had an awful May but has been terrific since, and owns an .845 OPS on the year now.
  • Going yard: RF Jake Sanford: 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB — Third-rounder from 2019 has a .292/.368/.443 line between Tampa and Hudson Valley…This was his fourth game for the Renegades.
  • Also going yard: LF Elijah Dunham: 1-5, R, HR, RBI, 2 K — Has a .927 OPS this season…seriously, who isn’t hitting on the farm this year?
  • Leftovers: CF Pat DeMarco doubled…3B James Nelson and C Saul Torres combined for three hits.

Single-A Tampa Tarpons

You can’t stop the Tarpons, you can only hope to contain them. They’re now 44-19 after another offensive outburst tonight, winning 13-4 against Lakeland (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: LHP Clay Aguilar: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K — 30 of 44 pitches were strikes (68%)

  • The Martian: DH Jasson Dominguez: 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K — 99 MPH exit velo on his first professional dinger…As you can see, he was a little off balance and still went deep.
  • Prospect watch: CF Everson Pereira: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K — 1.250 OPS in 10 games with Tampa so far. Hit into a 106.9 MPH double play, too.

  • Leftovers: LF Evan Alexander had three hits, including a double. He also stole a base.

FCL Yankees

After falling behind 7-0 to the FCL Blue Jays, the rookie-ball Yanks tried to stage a comeback but ultimately fell short, 12-7 (box score). A couple of prospects had nice games, at least.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Freicer Perez: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K — Second game back for Perez since 2018. Per his MiLB player page, this is considered a rehab assignment for the now 25 year-old, who was once a fairly notable prospect.
  • In relief: RHP Nicio Rodriguez: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K — Also tossed three wild pitches. Team’s 26th-best prospect per FanGraphs.
  • In relief: RHP Kenlly Montas: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
  • In relief: RHP Starling Perez: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
  • In relief: RHP Christian Sumoza: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Hitting star: SS Alexander Vargas: 2-5, R, HR, RBI, K — First homer for the 19 year-old, who’s the 13th-best Yankees prospect per MLB Pipeline. Up to .342/.432/.474
  • Prospect watch: DH Antonio Gomez: 2-4, R, 2 K — Backstop got to DH today…He’s 21st on MLB Pipeline’s Yankees list, by the way.
  • Leftovers: 1B Anthony García and 3B Marcos Cabrera went deep…LF Raimfer Salinas tallied two hits, including a triple.

Both DSL Yankees teams won today. (vs. Phillies Red, vs. Rockies)

    Crazy HR from Jasson, but every time I see him I wonder how his linebacker physique will hold up as a baseball played. He just looks so muscular and stocky that I wonder if being a bit slimmer would be better

    • Mungo

      It’s his natural build, meaning stocky, so I’m not sure he can slim down much. Hasn’t slowed him down as he’s in excellent shape. Hopefully he can maintain that as he ages.
