The various minor league affiliates for the Yankees had Sunday off, which leaves the Baby Bomber Recap without box scores to report. Instead of just skipping the post all together, I collected a few notes from around the farm system.
- Gary Sanchez will play a rehab game with the Low-A Charleston RiverDogs tonight, the team confirmed. The catcher stood out as the Yankees’ most powerful bat in the early goings, hitting .268/.333/.732 with six home runs. Get Sanchez through this game healthy and let him continue to rake at the big league level, right?
- J.P. Feyereisen often gets overlooked as part of the Andrew Miller trade. I suppose that’s what happens when Clint Frazier and Justus Sheffield headline a deal. Feyereisen’s run in the Yankees’ farm system hasn’t been the smoothest, and the right-hander had surgery to remove a bone chip in his elbow last summer. Conor Foley caught up with Feyereisen and provided a great profile on him. You will probably walk away feeling optimistic about his season.
- Gio Gonzalez opted out of his minor league contract over the weekend. While his status with the Yankees remains unknown, it doesn’t look like he will get called up. What is clear, however, is that Gonzalez was an A+ teammate at Scranton. Brendan Kuty reports that the veteran southpaw bought his minor league teammate sneakers, a clubhouse arcade game, and treated the squad to dinner. What a cool guy,
