New York Yankees Minor League Recap: May 25-31

2 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

AA- Trenton Thunder

Hitter Of The Week- Ali Castillo

Maybe he’ll be the guy to replace Derek Jeter? (Sorry Didi) Castillo has done nothing but hit since coming off of the DL. This week, Castillo had at least a hit in every game except one, drove in five and stole a couple of bases

Honorable Mention- Aaron Judge

Maybe Judge will be the next player promoted to AAA. Judge got a hit in every game this week, with a homer, and eight RBI. Judge is just one RBI off the team lead, but is in the top 10 in the league in RBI, homers and OPS.

Pitcher Of The Week- Luis Severino

Severino got promoted to AAA this week, making his debut yesterday. In his final start, Severino struck out nine over five innings while giving up three hits and two runs.

Honorable Mention- Eric Ruth

Ruth moved to 3-0 in six starts with another solid outing this week. Ruth went seven innings, giving up a run, four hits, walked one and struck out six. It’s the second time in his past three starts he’s struck out six.
