DoTF: Big weeks at the plate for Volpe, Wells, Chaparro, and García


SWB lost four of six games playing host to Lehigh Valley. The RailRiders are 9-14 and 4.5 games behind the pace in the International League East.

  • Say Hay: RHP Hayden Wesneski: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 6 K, HR — Went 12 up, 12 down to start the game before running into trouble in the fifth. Nick Maton took him deep. Only need 76 pitches to go six frames. Raises his ERA to 2.37 on the season in 19 innings.
  • Still Struggling: RHP Deivi García: 4.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K — Labored through this one…saved his best inning for last though, throwing a 1-2-3 fourth. His strikeout total (11) has finally met his walk total (11) on the season (19 innings). That good spring training feels long ago.
  • Going DownGil: RHP Luis Gil: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, WP — Yikes, threw 77 pitches in spite of a 13 pitch, 1-2-3 second inning. Control has never been Gil’s strong suit, but an 18.5 percent walk rate just won’t fly. He managed to pitch well at a ~15 percent mark last year, but perhaps he was a bit lucky. Stuff is obviously overpowering, but a relief role is in his future if he can’t find the zone often enough.
  • Starting Pitcher: LHP JP Sears: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K — Threw 45 pitches; not sure if the team is trying to stretch him out or if his day in the rotation is simply a bullpen day. Clarke Schmidt could take his spot with roster size in the majors decreasing.
  • Starting Pitcher: LHP Matt Krook: 4.1 ISP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 6 BB, 7 K — Oof, 6 walks and 7 strikeouts? Not a lot of action behind him. Three of those walks came in the fifth, for what it’s worth, so maybe he was just left in too long. Threw 89 pitches.
  • Original Killer B: LHP Manny Bañuelos: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K — ManBan was very efficient, needing just 68 pitches to get this far.
  • Prospect Watch: SS Oswald Peraza: 6-for-19, 4 R, HR, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 4 K, 3 SB — Nice rebound after reaching base just once in previous 17 plate appearances. His average as reached the Mendoza Line, but he still has just a 67 wRC+.
  • Prospect Watch: IF Oswaldo Cabrera: 5-for-20, 3 R, 2 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 3 BB, 6 K — Finally got his first homer of the year. Hopefully that gets him going. He had 29 last season. O-Cab has a .214/.286/.400 (81 wRC+) in just under 80 PA.
  • Ebb and Flo: CF Estevan Florial: 7-for-18, 5 R, 2B, 4 RBI, 5 BB, 6 K, 2 SB — He really knows how to tease everyone with awesome weeks like this from time to time, only to look awful for long stretches. 24 year old now has a .246/.342/.391 (97 wRC+) line, albeit with a K-rate north of 30%.
  • Leftovers: 1B Greg Bird reached base 8 times; 6 via walk…IF Armando Alvarez and OF Phillip Evans homered…RHP Ron Marinaccio dominated in his return to the minors, striking out 5 in 2 frames yesterday.

Double-A Somerset Patriots


The Patriots grabbed five of six from Portland, including the last four in a row to close out the week. Somerset is 14-7 and owns the best record in the Eastern League, including a three game advantage in its division.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Mitch Spence: 4.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K — Started the fifth inning but walked the first batter and was pulled.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Sean Boyle: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K — Great rebound start after allowing seven runs in his start last week. Boyle was the team’s 25th round pick in 2018, and is from Long Island. Pretty impressive just to reach this level being that late of a draftee.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Randy Vasquez: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 WP — He’s thrown 51, 56, and 59 pitches, respectively, in his three starts. Not sure why the slow build up, but this was a nice outing nonetheless.
  • Throwing Flames: RHP Luis Medina: 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K — Needed just 57 pitches to dominate across five innings…First ten hitters didn’t reach base. Touched 102.
  • Ready for a Move Up: LHP Ken Waldichuk: 4.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K — Triple-A when? 28 strikeouts and 6 walks in 18.2 innings this year…He’s up to 98 frames with Somerset dating back to last summer.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Jhony Brito: 7.0 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 6 K — 24 year-old owns a 0.89 ERA in 4 starts (20.1 IP). He struggled a bit in Double-A last year (5.01 ERA in 8 starts).
  • The Top Prospect: SS Anthony Volpe: 6-for-20, 4 R, 2B, 3B, HR, 6 RBI, 5 BB, 4 K, SB, CS — Things are coming together after a slow start. He’s got a .203/.345/.406 (112 wRC+) line, but owns a 159 wRC+ mark since April 16th, including more walks than strikeouts.
  • Power Binge: 3B Andres Chaparro: 5-for-18, 3 R, 2 2B, 3 HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K — That’s now five homers on the year; he hit 15 in time with Tampa and Hudson Valley last season. He’s an extra base machine and owns a .261 ISO this season.
  • Catcher Down: C Josh Breaux: 1-for-9, 4 K — Played in just two games…out with an undisclosed injury.
  • (Not Exactly) Locked In: CF Brandon Lockridge: 4-for-21, 4 R, 3B, HR, 5 RBI, BB, 5 K, CS — His second homer of the year in 80 PA…he had 10 in 191 PA at this level last year.
  • Leftovers: 2B Derek Dietrich and 3B Chad Bell hit two homers a piece…OF Blake Perkins cooled down (1-for-14, HR) after a torrid stretch the week before…RHP Steven Jennings, who the Yanks took in the minor league Rule 5 draft in December, fanned 8 in 5.2 relief innings…He’s got 19 strikeouts and 2 walks in 16.1 innings out the pen…former second round pick in 2017.


High-A Hudson Valley Renegades


Hudson Valley went 4-2 at home against Wilmington. They’re 12-9 and 3.5 games back of Aberdeen for first place in the South Atlantic League North.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Matt Sauer: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HBP — Up to 23 strikeouts in 15 innings this season.
  • Take Notice: RHP Will Warren: 4.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 WP — Last year’s eighth rounder may not be long for this level…Up 2 22 strikeouts in 17 innings thus far and has a 2.65 ERA. His worst start was his first start, but since: 12.2 IP and 2 runs allowed.
  • Starting Pitcher: LHP Edgar Barclay: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K — Worked in the bullpen to start the season, last two outings in the rotation have been terrific (8.2 IP, 1 R, 11 K, 2 BB).
  • Way To Go: RHP Beck Way: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, WP — 2020 4th rounder has 50 strikeouts in 30.2 innings at this level since last season…Definitely the highest upside arm at this level
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Blas Castano: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Blane Abeyta: 3.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • First Round Watch: C Austin Wells: 5-for-16, 7 R, 3 HR, 5 RBI, 4 BB, 7 K, 3 SB — Been waiting for Wells to explode like this offensively…These were his first three homers of the season…He’s up to a ridiculous .311/.434/.525 (160 wRC+) line, which shouldn’t be a total surprise for an advanced collegiate bat draftee at this level.
  • First Round Watch: SS Trey Sweeney: 1-for-11, 3 R, HR, RBI, BB, 6 K — Eased back into things after returning from injured list
  • Prospect Watch: OF Everson Pereira: 5-for-17, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, 6 K — The strikeouts are a bit worrisome (28.7%), but he’s made it work so far (.300/.388/.414, 123 wRC+).
  • Leftovers: C Carlos Narvaez, 1B Eric Wagaman, OF Aaron Palensky, and 1B Tyler Hardman homered.


Single-A Tampa Tarpons


The Tarpons went 3-2 against Lakeland even though Friday and Saturday were rainouts. They played a doubleheader yesterday to make up one of the games, with the other to be played later in the month. Tampa is 9-11 and 3.5 games back of the top of the Florida State League West.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Yon Castro: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K — Good strikeout total, but also allowed just a 79.1 MPH average exit velo on 7 balls in play, including four south of 72 MPH.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Richard Fitts: 4.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K — 14 balls in play, 83.6 MPH average exit velo for last year’s 6th rounder.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Juan Carela: 6.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K — 20 year old has given up only 4 hits in 12.2 innings this season…Also has 19 strikeouts. He’s not a hard thrower (maxed out at 93.6 in this start, averaged 91.4 on his sinker), but he can really spin a slider (2755 RPM). He tallied 4 whiffs (against 14 swings) and 10 called strikes on the slider.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Chandler Champlain: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR — Kinda impressive that he didn’t get one whiff against his four-seamer (16 swings)…Of course, it didn’t matter as he allowed only a 75.4 MPH exit velo on 7 batted balls against the pitch.
  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Josue Panacual: 4.0 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 2 HBP — 75 of 80 pitches were either sinkers (41) or sliders (34)…He’s not typically a big strikeout pitcher, picking up 4 in his last two starts (8.1 IP)
  • Power Surge: RF Anthony García: 8-for-13, 6 R, 2B, 4 HR, 6 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K — Including a 115.5 MPH homer, sheesh.
  • The Martian: CF Jasson Dominguez: 3-for-16, 3 R, RBI, BB, 4 K, 2 SB — Includes six grounders…It’s been a rough, rough go for him. He’s at .216/.237/.311 (60 wRC+) with a 34.2% strikeout rate…I can’t help but think the Yankees were too quick to move him out of the Complex League last year (just 7 games). Still just 19, but I’m struggling to find much encouraging with a strikeout rate that high and a ground ball rate north of 60%.
  • Grabbing Time: C Anthony Seigler: 5-for-13, 3 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, 4 BB, 3 K — Antonio Gomez has really struggled, maybe Seigler is wrestling away some catching opportunitiesSeigler owns a .270/.449/.541 (192 wRC+) in 49 PA.
  • Prospect Watch: SS Alexander Vargas: 2-for-20, 6 K — A .100/.100/.100 line for the week, oof.
  • Leftovers: SS Benjamin Cowles and OF Madison Santos homered.

Yankees Prospects: Week four minor league review


Wells, Volpe, Florial, and Garcia are some of the prospects heating up as the Yankee affiliates had a strong week.


Despite a number of weather-related delays, it was a bright week for the Yankee system as three of the team’s affiliates brought home series wins. A pair of prospects secured weekly league honors due to their strong performances, and a number of the Yankees’ best prospects have really started picking up the pace. Let’s take a look at the results and performances around the Yankees system.


Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders


Record: 9-14; Eighth place in the International League (East), 4.5 GB


Past Week: 2-4 vs. Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies)


Coming Up: Away vs. Rochester Red Wings (Nationals)


After starting the week with back-to-back wins, the Scranton RailRiders could not close out a series victory as they dropped the next four games. Estevan Florial had a strong week, picking up seven hits in his five games played this last week. Oswaldo Cabrera also continued to pick up the pace, as his double on Thursday night gave him doubles in five straight games.


Players of Note:


Matt Krook: 5 G; 1.96 ERA, 23 IP, 16 H, 14 BB, 33 K


Estevan Florial: 5 G; .389/.522/.444, 2B, 2 SB


Hayden Wesneski: 4 G; 2.37 ERA, 19 IP, 11 H, 5 BB, 20 K, .164 BAA


Oswaldo Cabrera: 8 G; .281/.361/.531, HR, 5 2B



Double-A Somerset Patriots


Record: 14-7; First place in Eastern League (Northeast), 3.0 GA


Past Week: 5-1 vs. Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox)


Coming Up: Home vs. New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays)


The Somerset pitching staff came up big for the team, as they allowed just nine runs in their six-game series against the Portland Sea Dogs. Jhony Brito continued his incredible start to the season, tossing seven scoreless innings on Sunday afternoon. It’s been reported that Brito is up to 98 mph with his fastball while retaining his outstanding control. Anthony Volpe has also started to improve his at-bats and is picking up his offensive game. He has now walked 12 times in the last 10 games, while also hitting a pair of homers, a triple and a double in that stretch.


Players of Note:


Jhony Brito: 4 G; 0.89 ERA, 20.1 IP, 13 H, 5 BB, 22 K, 0.95 WHIP – Eastern League Pitcher of the Week


Ken Waldichuk: 4 G; 1.45 ERA, 18.2 IP, 10 H, 6 BB, 28 K


Anthony Volpe: 10 G; .273/.457/.545, 2 HR, 3B, 2B, 6 SB


Blake Perkins: 16 G; .291/.400/.745, 6 HR, 3B, 5 2B


High-A Hudson Valley Renegades


Record: 12-9; Second place in the South Atlantic League (North), 3.5 GB


Past Week: 4-2 vs. Wilmington Blue Rocks (Nationals)


Coming Up: Away vs. Jersey Shore BlueClaws (Phillies)


The Renegades won their second series in a row, behind solid pitching and several offensive players who are heating up. Most notably, Austin Wells has been on fire since starting the season just 4-for-27. Wells hit three home runs on the week and could be just weeks away from punching his ticket to Double-A.


On Saturday night, the Renegades stole nine bases without being caught. The team has 58 stolen bases in their first 21 games of the season, leading the South Atlantic League. Five players on the roster already have at least eight stolen bases, including Wells who is 8-for-8 on the season.


Players of Note:


Austin Wells: 17 G; .311/.434/.525, 3 HR, 4 2B


Everson Pereira: 18 G; .300/.388/.414, HR, 2 3B, 2B


Edgar Barclay: 6 G; 17.1 IP, 1.56 ERA, 13 H, 2 BB, 24 K, 0.87 WHIP


Carson Coleman: 6 G; 12.2 IP, 0.00 ERA, 6 H, 7 BB, 17 K



Low-A Tampa Tarpons


Record: 9-11; Third place in the Florida State League (East Coast), 4 GB


Past Week: 3-2 vs. Lakeland Flying Tigers


Coming Up: Away vs. Bradenton Marauders (Pirates)


It appeared that the Florida State League had little interest in pitching to Anthony Garcia in the early going. The Tarpons’ slugging first baseman walked 18 times in his first 13 games of the season. This week, the Lakeland Flying Tigers challenged Garcia and he responded in a big way. In four games, Garcia hit seven balls with exit velocities of 100 mph or more, including four home runs. According to Yankees hitting coordinator Joe Migliaccio, Garcia has just an eight percent chase rate on the season and has lowered his strikeout rate from to 28.6 percent. For context, 28.5 percent of plate appearances in the Florida State League have ended with a strikeout this year. In addition to Garcia, Anthony Seigler has continued his strong play and is another player who is in position to earn a quick promotion back to the High-A level, where he spent part of 2021.


Players of Note:


Anthony Garica: 17 G; .265/.486/.653, 6 HR, 2B, 20 BB – Florida State League Player of the Week


Anthony Seigler: 13 G; .270/.449/.541, 2 HR, 4 2B, 12 BB


Carlos Gomez: 5 G; 1.93 ERA, 14 IP, 9 H, 2 BB, 23 K


Jaun Carela: 3 G; 0.71 ERA, 12.2 IP, 4 H, 4 BB, 19 K

Yankees have a lowkey stud starting pitcher climbing the farm system t.co/fqKQeNd6TY


The New York Yankees have done a phenomenal job developing some of their young pitchers the past few seasons. While Michael King and Clarke Schmidt are finally hitting their stride in the MLB, another young pitcher is climbing the farm system who could make a tremendous impact to the next level.


Somerset starter Ken Waldichuk has been dominating this season in Double-A at just 24 years old. Waldichuk crushed Single-A ball last season, recording a 0.00 ERA before making his way to Double-A, where he struggled to adjust. This season, it’s been an entirely different story.



“He’s been dominant,” Double-A Somerset Patriots manager, Dan Fiorito told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com.



Waldichuk oozes confidence, mowing down batters at an impressive rate.



“He’s a workhorse,” Fiorito said. “He’s somebody who, every time he gets the ball, he seems so confident we’re going to go out there and get a win.”



Waldichuk features a 13.50 strikeout per nine rate and 91.5% left on base rate this year. His 51.4% ground ball rate is also outstanding, representing a number the Yankees will love for their stadium. After being elevated to Double-A in 2021, Ken did labor to a degree, recording a 4.20 ERA over 79.1 innings. However, he’s taken a significant step forward this year and continues to impress the Yankees brass.



“He attacks hitters,” Fiorito said. “He’s getting better and better with his the impressive stuff that he has, being able to control it and throw it in the zone and when he’s doing that and he’s showing his plus fastball and it’s upper 90s with run and ride, and then you throw in the slider and changeup.



Waldichuk is quickly climbing the Yankees prospect list, now within the top 10 by most accounts. It is clear that his control and velocity have become more prevalent, increasing his value and efficiency.


If he continues to develop at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ken earns an opportunity in Triple-A before the season is over. Next year, who’s to say he doesn’t dominate and make his way to the MLB roster, potentially making an impact as a relief arm before being bumped up to stater. Adding another lefty arm to the rotation might be valuable.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Everyone’s eyes are aimed at the Anthony Volpes and Jasson Dominguezs of the Yankee farm system, but there’s a host of productive players making a name for themselves. Double-A Somerset has a pair that are on the rise according to their coaching staff, with pitcher Jhony Brito and infielder Chad Bell drawing praise for their work on the organization’s most successful level of the minors so far.

MyCentralJersey | Mike Ashmore: In a minor league system replete with promising catchers, one name has gone under the radar. Drafted in the 27th round of the 2018 MLB Draft out of Bryant University, Mickey Gasper has turned heads through the early going, batting .387 while striking out and walking at equal rates. With more highly touted prospects ahead of him on the depth chart, Gasper has had to make the most of every opportunity afforded to him.

That's what happened when they don't get promoted in time,


They get too comfortable at that perticular level.... There is no challenge or incentive to

Yankees Prospects: Week five minor league review



We take a look around the Yankees minor league system, where the Waldichuk-led Somerset staff is one of the best in baseball while Hudson Valley is swiping bases at an amazing rate.


www.pinstripealley.com/2022/5/10/2306458...


Weather played havoc with the Northeast baseball schedules over the last week, but that did not stop some of the Yankees’ top prospects from putting together solids outings. With five weeks of play under their belts some of the team’s prospects are starting to gain some helium as scouts get fresh looks at their development and refine their future projections. Let’s take a look at how the teams and prospects in the Yankees system fared over the last week.


Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders


Record: 10-19; Ninth place in the International League (East), 7.5 GB


Past Week: 1-5 vs. Rochester Red Wings (Nationals)


Coming Up: Home vs. Syracuse Mets


Once again, despite some strong individual performances the RailRiders struggled to put together complete games. Estevan Florial has put together a strong stretch that resulted in his callup as the 27th man for the Yankees’ doubleheader on Sunday. On the pitching side Hayden Wesneski continues to standout for the team as he turned in two strong starts during the week and has looked impressive so far this season.


Players of Note:


Estevan Florial: 9 G; .400/.526/.500, 3 2B, 5 SB


Hayden Wesneski: 6 G; 2.48 ERA, 29 IP, 19 H, 6 BB, 32 K, .184 BAA


Oswald Peraza: 9 G; .286/.342/.457, HR, 3 2B, 3 SB


J.P. Sears: 3 G; 1.17 ERA, 7.2 IP, 7 H, 0 BB, 9 K




Double-A Somerset Patriots


Record: 17-9; First place in Eastern League (Northeast), 2.5 GA


Past Week: 3-2 vs. New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays)


Coming Up: Away vs. Altoona Curve (Pirates)


The story of this team is the pitching staff, which is putting up some of the best numbers of any pitching staff in minor league baseball. They lead the Eastern League with a 2.76 ERA, that also ranks second in MiLB — only three of the 12 teams in the league are within one run of the Patriots ERA. Opponents are hitting just .191 off the Patriots’ pitching staff and they have struck out 291 batters in 228 innings of action. One of the leading arms on the team is Ken Waldichuk, who is carving his way through the Eastern League and could be on the verge of a promotion to Triple-A before the end of the month. He capped the week with five no-hit innings, where he also recorded 12 strikeouts.


Players of Note:


Ken Waldichuk: 5 G; 1.14 ERA, 23.2 IP, 10 H, 9 BB, 40 K, .127 BAA


Kyle Zurak: 7 G; 0.00 ERA, 10.2 IP, 6 H, 4 BB, 16 K


Mickey Gasper: 10 G; .364/.475/.424, 2 2B


Sean Boyle: 2 G; 0.90 ERA, 10 IP, 7 H, 1 BB, 16 K



Record: 14-12; Tied-second place in the South Atlantic League (North), 3.5 GB


Past Week: 2-3 vs. Jersey Shore BlueClaws (Phillies)


Coming Up: Home vs. Aberdeen IronBirds (Orioles)


The Renegades’ reputation for running continues to gain steam. Through 26 games the Renegades have stolen 69 bases, and the team is led by second baseman Cooper Bowman who is 16-for-17 in stolen base attempts. On the pitching side the team is third in the South-Atlantic League with 275 strikeouts in 219 innings. The pitching staff received a boost this week as TJ Sikkema, the 38th overall pick from the 2019 draft, returned to game action by tossing two perfect innings on Sunday. It was his first appearance since he pitched for the Short-Season A Staten Island Yankees shortly after being drafted.


Players of Note:


Austin Wells: 21 G; .307/.411/.533, 4 HR, 5 2B


Cooper Bowman: 22 G; .265/.447/.485, 2 HR, 7 2B, 3B, 16 SB, 1 CS


Edgar Barclay: 7 G; 21 IP, 1.29 ERA, 14 H, 4 BB, 29 K, 0.86 WHIP


Carson Coleman: 7 G; 14.2 IP, 0.00 ERA, 6 H, 8 BB, 18 K



Low-A Tampa Tarpons


Record: 13-13; Fourth place in the Florida State League (East Coast), 2 GB


Past Week: 4-2 vs. Bradenton Marauders (Pirates)


Coming Up: Away vs. Dunedin Blue Jays


Since a very frustrating offensive series in Clearwater in mid-April, the Tampa Tarpons’ offense has shown significant improvement. In the series with Clearwater they scored just six total runs, but they have been averaging over five runs a game in the 11 games since. Jasson Dominguez has started to put together better at-bats over the last two series and has a 144 wRC+ in his last 11 games. Former first round pick Anthony Seigler continues to play well and could be on a path back to High-A Hudson Valley in the near future. As a pitching staff, the Tarpons are holding their opponents to a .213 batting average against, leading the Florida State League.
