Pinstriped Performances: Monday, August 20, 2018


With three teams off on Monday night, there were only seven games played in the New York Yankees and the only team to pick up a win was Staten Island (1-6). There were three shutouts overall and in every loss, the affiliate was held to three runs or fewer. On Staten Island, one pitcher is working his way back to the upper levels of the farm system on his rehab assignment. Find out who that pitcher was and much more in our Pinstriped Performances:
