Nestor Cortes (Bryan Green)

Check out the top performances across the New York Yankees farm system in the latest edition of Pinstriped Performances.

Nestor Cortes, SP, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple A): Cortes was impressive in his Triple A debut. He threw 5.2 innings of hit-less baseball. Nestor walked three and struck out five.

Luis Severino, RP, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple A): Severino was supposed to start the game, but made a relief appearance instead. This is a move that most likely came from New York, as Severino is expected to be re-called when rosters expand to pitch out of the bullpen for the Yankees. Luis tossed 2.1 innings of scoreless baseball. He permitted two singles, no walks, and struck out five.

Mason Williams, RF, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple A): Williams went 2-3 at the plate with a double, sacrifice, run batted in and run scored.

Giovanny Gallegos, RP, Trenton Thunder (Double A): Gallegos (2-1) earned the victory for Trenton by throwing 2.1 innings of near perfect baseball. He struck out five, walked one, and did not allow a hit.

Leonardo Molina, CF, Pulaski Yankees (Rookie): Molina went 2-4 with two home runs, three runs batted in and two runs scored.

Rafael Lara, RP, Pulaski Yankees (Rookie): Lara tossed four innings of two-hit shutout baseball. He struck out five and walked one. Rafael earned the win, improving to 3-6 on his 2016 campaign.
