With the Major League trade deadline approaching, scouts are hovering around the Yankees system making assessments for their teams in preparation for potential moves. Those scouts were able to witness some impressive performances as the Yankees saw their prospects pitch the system’s third no-hitter of the month, hit for a cycle, and earn recognition for their performances. Three of the four Yankees full season teams remain in first place and overall the system teams are playing winning baseball.

Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders

Record: 45-23, 1st place in the Triple-A (Northeast); 1.5 GA

Past Week: 4-2 vs. Rochester Red Wings (Nationals)

Upcoming: Away vs. Syracuse Mets; 23-48

The RailRiders continued to win behind the strong pitching of Luis Gil, who combined with two teammates for a no-hitter on Friday night. With their entire regular outfield playing in the major leagues, Armando Alvarez stepped up big on both sides of the ball to help carry the team to another series win.

Players of Note:

Luis Gil: 1 G; 6.0 IP, 0 H, 2 BB, 0 R, 9 K – Triple-A East Pitcher of the Week.

Donny Sands: 5 G, .350/.391/.850, 3 HR, 2B

Hoy Park: 48 G; .327/.475/.567, 10 HR, 9 2B, 3B — best of luck in Pittsburgh, Hoy

Brody Koerner: 15 G; 3.29 ERA, 54.2 IP, 1.26 WHIP

Armando Alvarez: 8 G; .353/.371/.853, 4 HR, 5 2B

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Record: 43-28, 2nd place in the Double-A (Northeast); 3.0 GB

Past Week: 3-3 vs. Altoona Curve (Pirates)

Upcoming: Away vs. Reading Fightin Phils; 29-43

The Patriots continued to keep pace in the division by splitting a series with a strong Altoona Curve team. Shawn Semple took advantage of his opportunity to return to Double-A with six innings of shutout ball. Oswald Peraza, Brandon Lockridge, and Isiah Gilliam paced the offense with big performances.

Players of Note:

Shawn Semple: 1 G; 6.0 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 0 R, 9 K – Double-A Northeast Pitcher of the Week

Oswald Peraza: 18 G; .360/.400/.587, 3 HR, 6 2B, 3B, 6 SB

Janson Junk: 13 G; 1.46 ERA, 61.2 IP, 62 K, 0.91 WHIP

Brandon Lockridge: 12 G; .327/.353/.653; 5 HR, 2B

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

Record: 47-25, 1st place in the High-A East (Northern); 8.5 GA

Past Week: 4-2 vs. Aberdeen Iron Birds (Orioles)

Upcoming: Home vs. Wilmington Blue Rocks (Nationals); 29-43

The Renegades started the week out with a bang, dropping 37 runs on second place Aberdeen in the first three games of the series. Just like he was doing in Low-A, Anthony Volpe has ignited the offense since his arrival with Hudson Valley. Volpe and Josh Breaux are tied for second in the Yankees’ minor league system with 15 homers each on the season. Ezequiel Duran hit for the cycle during Thursday’s 10-9 victory.

Players of Note:

Jhony Brito: 13 G; 2.76, 65.1 IP, 0.99 WHIP, 68 K, 9 BB – High-A East Pitcher of the Week

Anthony Volpe: 11 G; .326/.418/.652, 3 HR, 6 2B

Ezequiel Duran: 35 G; .317/.399/.561, 6 HR, 8 2B, 2 3B, 6 SB

Jake Sanford: 11 G; .302/.348/.605, 4 HR, 2B

Pablo Olivares: 20 G; .357/.419/.552, HR, 9 2B

Low-A Tampa Tarpons

Record: 48-23, 1st place in the Low-A Southeast (West Coast); 5.0 GA

Past Week: 3-3 vs. Clearwater Threshers (Phillies)

Upcoming: Away vs. Palm Beach Cardinals; 25-45

The Tarpons were in danger of losing their first series of the season after Friday night’s loss, but they rebounded with two straight wins to go .500 on the week. Jasson Dominguez saw his nine-game hitting streak come to an end, but he has still been on base in every game at the Low-A Level. On the pitching side, Edgar Barclay has been on fire out of the bullpen and hasn’t allowed a run in his last seven games.

Players of Note:

Everson Pereira: 14 G; .400/.468/.673, 3 HR, 4 2B, 3B

Jasson Dominguez: 10 G; .300/.378/.475, HR, 3B, 2 2B
