Weekly Wrap

September 8, 2017

by Javier Barragan


First, thank you to all the BP members, specifically Mark Anderson, Uncle Jack, Victor Filoromo, Steve Givarz, Craig Goldstein, Greg Goldstein, Nate Graham, Wilson Karaman, Jeff Long, Kate Morrison, Jeffrey Paternosto, Mitch Pullman, Eric Rothmann, Jarrett Seidler, Will Siskel, Joshua Turner, Greg Wellemeyer, and many more for your eyes, ears, and Twitter fingahs in producing (in my opinion) an exhaustive list of notable minor-league promotions, demotions, DL assignments and more.

Now, for the goodies.

To The DL

Yankees placed 1B Chris Gittens on the DL. In High-A, the 23-year-old struck out a ton (27.2 strikeout rate), walked a ton (12.8 walk rate) and crushed a ton (an ISO of .206 with a .340 BABIP). Since he plays a solid defense at first base, in a league of TTO, Gittens could carve out a major-league role in the future.

Also to the DL is corner OF Canaan Smith, Yankees 2017 fourth-rounder, with a wrist injury.

Reds 3B Nick Senzel was placed on the DL due to vertigo. He has not played since August 24th.
