Luis Gil just left the Scranton game with a possible arm injury, although he was 86 pitches in.
A bit old for a prospect at 24, but he still put up a solid .285/.356/.467 line at A/High A. What a waste. Signed with an independent league team.Sanford, 24, was released by the Yankees last week, reports nj.com. At least part of the reason was that he was stealing equipment from teammates and selling it, per multiple allegations. The story started to spread rather quickly on social media in the last few weeks, as some fans started to post messages saying they were scammed out of money in alleged memorabilia sales by Sanford.
Will Warren continues to impress, 7 scoreless innings in AA today, just 5 ERs allowed in his last 6 AA starts (1.35 ERA). Again, he was an 8th round pick just last summer.Gammons talking about Will Warren again in The Athletic today (please hire someone to proofread his columns):
“ Look at Will Warren, which the Reds have done. At this time last year, he was a small right-handed pitcher from Southeast Louisiana University waiting to see if he got drafted. Because of the work of area scouts Nick Leuzinger and Mitch Coloran, the Yankees took Warren in the eighth round. The organization put him on a training program to build 20 pounds. They worked on maximum usage of his body. They fine-tuned his slider into another whirlybird. And this spring, in his first full pro season, he’s shot up to hitting 98 miles an hour, his slider has gone to a seam-shifted weapon, and he’s already at Double-A Somerset and opening eyes. ”
Maybe he or Peraza will finally be called up depending on how long LeMahieu is out for.Everyone talks about Volpe and Peraza and understandably so, but Oswaldo Cabrera was the AA league MVP last year and has been red hot in AAA since returning from injury. He was slashing .326/.414/.596 in his first 104 PA since his mid-July return, and that was before this HR just now, he also had a two run triple in the 1st.
Spencer Jones makes a lot of things happen, 6-9 with 2 walks in the last three games in low A. I saw him on one top hundred list already, I expect him to climb quickly.Pretty excited about NY's next giant, Spencer Jones:
Yes, although 1) a few of them were late season promotions and it's not certain they'll start at the higher level next year and 2) they do have some very high ceiling guys at lower levels still, Roderick Arias, Spencer Jones, Brando (formerly Brandon) Mayea (who will sign in January). Cabrera was never a big prospect, FWIW, but he blew up last year and has kept it going this year after a slow start (bad April, hurt for 2 months after that).Feels like most of the Yankees top prospects are now in the upper levels of the minors.
Not sure about this one, but the Judge/Sanchez/Gleyber/Severino group from about 5 years ago was pretty damn loaded, plus Frazier/Andujar...Can't really remember a time like that, especially with this many potential impact bats right on the cusp of helping the big club, or currently helping the big club (Cabrera, Peraza).
