- Gary Sanchez was placed on the disabled list with some sort of hand injury and is likely out for the season.
- Dellin Betances has been promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton.
- Ravel Santana broke his ankle in two places and tore some ligaments. He’s out until at least Spring Training of next year.
- Josh Romanski was demoted from Double-A to High-A Tampa while Kei Igawa was activated from Trenton’s disabled list along with Ray Kruml.
- Today’s Amateur Draft Signing Day so we’ll probably see a good amount of signings today. Daniel Camarena, 20th round pick, signed. I’m a big fan and here’s a very, very brief Keith Law scouting report. It was also reported that they are close to signing sixth rounder Jake Cave.
The Yankees had both of their games today rained out.
