Yankees Minor League Report 8/7/19: Jake Sanford: 4 Hits, 2 HR


The East and the West played each other today, with the West (18-16) punishing the poor East (13-20), 7-2.


Sandy Mota (who is 22) hit a home run, his third in 19 games at this level.  He is obviously on the older side for this level…SS Angel Rojas (18) doubled to increase his hitting streak to five….


CF Raimfer Salinas now owns a 10-game hitting streak after going 2-for-4 with his third home run of the season.  He also stole his 8th base…17-year old RHP Jose Chambuco improved to 4-0 by throwing five innings, giving up two runs on five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.  In 46 innings between here and the DSL, he has a 3.91 ERA and 59/6 K/BB ratio.  That will work.  I looked through as many articles as I possibly could, but couldn't find anything about what Chambuco signed for, which means he signed for very little.

5.40 ERA in 70 IP at this level with 79 hits allowed and a 69/33 K/BB ratio.
RHP Daniel Bies4.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K
He has been struggling since his promotion here (really, just one game where he gave up seven runs!), so this is nice to see.   He now owns a 90/25 K/BB ratio over 80.1 IP this season between here, Charleston, and Scranton (where he threw in one emergency game)
RHP Kyle Zurak1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
2.63 ERA in 51.1 IP with 41 hits allowed and a 44/14 K/BB ratio for the 8th round pick back in 2017.  Ten consecutive scoreless outings

Charleston Riverdogs (57-57) had the night off.

Staten Island Yankees (27-24) (Lost to Vermont, 14-10)

SS Josh Smith1-for-4, HR (2), RBI, 2 RS, 2 BB, K
Back-to-back games with a home run.   He is 13-for-35 with ten walks and three strikeouts.  Again, college bats – especially those from big schools (LSU in this case) – should take care of business at this level.  That is not to downplay Smith, as not all of them do.
CF Jake Sanford4-for-6, 2 HR (3), 3 RBI, 2 RS
First multi-HR game of his career (if you are decent at math, you knew that already!) for this year's third-round pick.    He was in a 5-for-36 rut entering this game.
3B Andres Chaparro:  2-for-4, RS, HBP, K
He is hitting .288 in 118 AB with 22 walks and 23 strikeouts.   Good news:  He is only 20.   Not-so-great-news:  He is repeating the level after a rough season last year.
RF Juan De Leon:  1-for-5, 4 K
DH Carlos Narvaez2-for-5, RS
1B Nelson Alvarez2-for-4, HR (2), RBI, 2 RS, BB, 2 K
C Chase Illig1-for-3, SF, RBI, BB, K
4-for-12 since his promotion
2B Matt Pita2-for-5, HR (3), 4 RBI, RS
LF Evan Alexander1-for-4, BB, 2 K

RHP Wellington Diaz (L, 2-4):  1.1 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR
RHP Austin Gardner:  1.2 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, HR
At least he recorded one more out than Diaz!
RHP Marcus Evey 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
2.35 ERA in 23 IP with 25 hits allowed and a 20/8 K/BB ratio.  20th round pick in last year's draft hasn't allowed a HR in 51.2 career innings.
RHP Justin Wilson2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Pulaski Yankees (32-15) (Defeated Princeton, 6-4.  Game was called due to rain in the 9th)

SS Roberto Chirinos:  2-for-4, 2B (11), HR (4), RBI, RS, BB, K
6-game hitting streak (12-for-26).  The 18-year old has shown off some pop with those 11 doubles and four home runs in 153 AB.
CF Antonio Cabello:  1-for-3, RS, 2 BB, K
3B Chad Bell:  0-for-3, SF, RBI, BB, 2 K
32 RBI in 37 games.  
LF Ryder Green:  1-for-4, 2 RBI, RS
.276/.355/.479 in 163 AB
C Gustavo Campero2-for-4, SB (8)
7-game hitting streak (15-for-29).    He has raised his average from .169 to .284 during the streak.
DH Saul Torres:  2-for-4, 2 2B (8), RBI, 2 K
.240/.345/.472 in 125 AB.  He isn't hitting for a lot of average but is showing off some pop and taking some walks.
RF Madison Santos:  0-for-4, 2 K
2B Borinquen Mendez:  1-for-4, RS
.292/.346/.375 in 72 AB at this level
1B Jake Farrell:  2-for-3, 2B (2), RBI, RS, BB

0.57 ERA in 15.2 IP with seven hits allowed and a 22/3 K/BB ratio.
