News & Notes
- This is it for Down on the Farm for now, though I’ll do weekly updates on Arizona Fall League results for the Yankee farmhands there. I’ll also keep some track of winter league results. It’s been a pleasure, y’all!
- Dellin Betances should be on his way to join the Yankees after this outing despite allowing a home run.
Double-A Trenton Thunder ELCS Game 4: (5-2 win at Bowie) … The Trenton Thunder are Eastern League champions for the fourth time in club history. That’s it for the Yankees’ Minor League season (outside of Arizona Fall League).
- Starter: RHP Rony Garcia: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 4/0 GB/FB — 52 of 82 (63%) pitches were strikes … The 21-year-old closes out a fine 2019 season in impressive fashion. Believe he will be Rule 5 eligible and the Yankees likely won’t have room for him.
- Rehab: RHP Dellin Betances: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HR — Threw 16 pitches, 10 strikes … Gave up a solo homer and single with two outs before closing out the inning. He should be back in NYY soon.
