On Monday, only three teams were in actions in the New York Yankees organization and only two of the games were completed. Staten Island took another close loss, but got a great start from their starter, who was on a rehab assignment. Meanwhile, Tampa’s offense got their second half off to a strong start before the rain came in and one young prospect made his organizational debut in the Dominican Summer League.
