All Yankee farm clubs are playing well over .500. Scranton is seven games, Trenton is six, Tampa is 11 and Charleston is 13.
Our top hitter at Scranton is 28-year-old Donovan Solano, who is batting .301. He plays 3B. (Aaron Judge, who went 1-4 yesterday is mired at .248 with 7 HRs; the league-leader in HRs has 10.)
As for former Yankee corner infielders... wow... they dot Triple A. Can't help but think they could be had for the right price. The next Steve Pearce, anyone?
Jesus H, Montero, now a Buffalo of Toronto Bison, is hitting .298 with 5 HRs.
Remember mighty Casey McGehee? Went to Japan, came back, had a big year, then poof? He's hitting .287 with 2 HRs.
Rob Segedin - 3B we traded to the Dodgers for Tyler Olsen and Ronald Torreyes - he's at .311 in the Pacific Coast League (where everyone bats .300.)
Pete O'Brien - whom we traded to the Diamondbacks for Martin Prado - is hitting .306 with 12 HRs. He's still only 25, and I think he got called up to the bigs.
Here's another blast from past: Ronnier Mustellier - former Railrider who played 3B? He's .255 with 1 HR.
Kyle Roller, last year's All-Star 1B at Scranton: He's .223 and 4 HRs.
Scott Sizemore is still around, now a 3B. He's at .216.
Travis Ishikawa - played a handful of games for us, then was on San Francisco's World Series champs - he's .201.
Remember Yankee-killer Will Middlebrooks? He's still playing for Colorado, hitting .192. So long, Will.
And lastly, but not leastly - or beastily - our own Nick Swisher - .252 and 4.
