Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: A New Era

The Yankees made three trades in the sprint to the deadline, waving goodbye to eight prospects in total. While the top of the system is intact, there’s no doubt that the affiliates look different than they did 48 hours ago. As the dust settled, the Yanks’ affiliates had a mixed Friday on the field.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (47-25): The RailRiders were shut out by Syracuse 6-0.

  • Star of the Game: None
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • Kyle Holder: 1-for-4
  • Cristian Perez: 1-for-4
  • Josh Maciejewski: 4 IP, 6 H, 4 R (3 ER), 5 BB, 1 K, 91 pitches (52 strikes). Maciejewski skipped directly from High-A Tampa to Triple-A for three appearances two years ago and did the same this year
  • Reggie McClain: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 34 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Nick Nelson: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 18 pitches (12 strikes)
  • Brian Keller: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 10 pitches (7 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (46-29): The Patriots dominated Reading 7-0 thanks to the two most predictable events on the Yankees farm: a Dermis Garcia home run and a great outing by Ken Waldichuk.

  • Star of the Game: Ken Waldichuk – 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 91 pitches (60 strikes). Waldichuk’s Double-A ERA is down to 3.35, and he’s struck out 62 in 43 innings at this level
  • Hitting Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 1-for-2, 1 home run (19), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 stolen base. It’s pretty remarkable that Garcia’s OPS is only .724 after hitting all these homers
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-5, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Max Burt: 2-for-3, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Aaron Palensky: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Ron Marinaccio: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K, 47 pitches (30 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 2 pitches (1 strike)

Hudson Valley Renegades (48-28): The ‘Gades bullpen melted down as the Blue Rocks stormed back from a 4-0 eighth inning deficit to win 6-5.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 1-for-4, 1 home run (16), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. For most of the game, it looked like Breaux’s team-leading 16th might prove the difference in the ballgame
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base
  • Anthony Seigler: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Elijah Dunham: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K, 88 pitches (60 strikes). Spence has struck out at least five hitters in his last five appearances
  • Charlie Ruegger: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 2 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 47 pitches (30 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 0 K, 17 pitches (5 strikes). Holloway’s control betrayed him as he walked three hitters in a row with two outs to tie the game, and then allowed the go-ahead single

Tampa Tarpons (51-23): The Tarpons swept a doubleheader from Palm Beach, winning game one 7-3 and game two 6-2.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Roberto Chirinos – 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base. Chirinos’ two-run double in the sixth broke a 1-1 tie
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-1, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Andres Chaparro: 3-for-3, 2 runs scored, 1 walk
  • Aldenis Sanchez: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 2-for-2, 3 RBI
  • Beck Way: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 68 pitches (43 strikes). This was by far Way’s best performance as a professional
  • Tyrone Yulie: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 49 pitches (28 strikes). The 19-year-old earned his first win in his second full-season ball appearance

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 1-for-4, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Pereira’s solo blast in the sixth gave the Tarpons an important insurance run
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-3, 2 RBI. Dominguez had an RBI base knock in the third and also drove in a run on a sacrifice fly
  • Juan De Leon: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Luis Santos: 2-for-3, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Pedro Diaz: 2-for-2, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Blas Castano: 4 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 69 pitches (49 strikes)
  • Carlos Gomez: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 39 pitches (27 strikes). Gomez recorded a win in his second Tarpons appearance this year
  • Wellington Diaz: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 14 pitches (7 strikes)

DSL Yankees 1 (6-7): Winners of three in a row, the Yanks’ latest triumph was over the Mets by a 7-1 score.

  • Star of the Game: Geralmi Santana – 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K. The 20-year-old native of San Pedro de Macoris got the win on Friday and hasn’t allowed an earned run in 8.1 innings of work this season
  • Felix Negueis: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Christopher Familia: 2-for-5, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Alan Mejia: 1-for-3, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Darwin Castillo: 2-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Oscar Silverio: 1-for-3, 2 RBI
  • Miguel Pozo: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
  • Yordi Pichardo: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

DSL Yankees 2 (8-5): Despite more fireworks from Brenny Escanio, the Yanks dropped this contest to the Orioles 3-2.

  • Star of the Game: Brenny Escanio – 2-for-3, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Escanio is carrying a 1.165 OPS this year, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the shortstop made the jump stateside soon
  • Willy Montero: 2-for-3, 1 RBI
  • Joel Mendez: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Carlos Rosario: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 1 K
  • Franyer Hernandez: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
