Loaisiga is back and starting game 2 of a doubleheader tonight for Trenton, and Mike King's rehab has also been moved to Trenton.
That’s the right call. I love how German is usually efficient with his pitch counts.Cashman announces no inning limits on German this year, he missed three weeks earlier and he is 27 (I am adding the second part but generally teams don’t worry about innings jumps for guys over 25-26).
OK, I haven't updated this in almost a month and there has been a bunch of news, so let me give it another shot. As before, guys in parentheses are injured and placed where I think they slot in if healthy. German is 4th here just because he has an option, but he has clearly been NY's best pitcher so far this season.
(Severino) (out until the ASB)
(Paxton) (got a cortisone shot, Cashman expects him out three weeks at the most)
(Montgomery) (aiming for July or August return last I heard)
Loaisiga (back in next time around for Paxton)
AAA: Nestor Cortes, *Chance Adams, David Hale, Drew Hutchison (*Michael King)
AA: *Deivi Garcia, *Albert Abreu, Rony Garcia, Nick Green (*Trevor Stephan, *Garrett Whitlock, *Nick Nelson)
A: *Clarke Schmidt, Frank German, Glenn Otto, Miguel Yajure, Jio Orozco, Shawn Semple
low A: *Roansy Contreras, *Luis Gil, *Luis Medina, Jio Orozco, Daniel Bies (Tanner Myatt)
David Hale or Nestor Cortes is NY's 6th guy right now, I believe, unless they tried to stretch out Cessa. Chad Green threw three innings/41 pitches last outing in AAA, but I think the ship has sailed on him being a SP.
What do you see as King’s upside? Like a #3 starter, or does he have ace potential?Mike King with his strongest start yet as he builds back up, 6.2 4 2 2 3 11 against Pawtucket. Also NY really only needs SPs to go 3-4 innings in the postseason if all of their relief options are healthy, so worth noting that he was perfect the first time through the order with 7 Ks. One more like that and he should jump Rosa as the next man up even though he is not yet on the 40 man, he would have been in the mix (or close behind) with German and Loaisiga for #6 guy (which has been at least #5 all season with Severino out) during spring training if he had stayed healthy.

Just based on stuff, I think he is more of a 3-5 starter from what I know. NY got him from MIA after the 2017 season as part of the Caleb Smith deal when they were clearing 40 man space. King wasn't especially highly regarded at that point, but he blew up in 2018, jumping three levels and dominating all of them. If he can get back to where he was this time last year, he can make a run at a NY rotation spot, but even then the cards will be stacked against him since he will have options and most of their other SP candidates will not.What do you see as King’s upside? Like a #3 starter, or does he have ace potential?
I haven't done an organizational rotation update since early May (below for reference) and NY has had a bunch of big prospect promotions recently, so I will do it again, for my own reference as much as anyone else's, heh. As before, guys in parentheses are injured and placed where I think they slot in if healthy.
(Severino) (once he gets up to 4-5 minnings)
Green/Cortes Jr. pairing
AAA: Adonis Rosa, *Michael King, *Nick Nelson, Brian Keller, Brody Koerner ( *Deivi Garcia and Chance Adams moved to the bullpen today for the remainder of the season, Rosa is first just because he is on the 40 man already).
AA: *Clarke Schmidt, *Albert Abreu, Rony Garcia, Shawn Semple, Nick Green (*Trevor Stephan, Garrett Whitlock)
A: *Luis Medina, *Miguel Yajure, Frank German, Alexander Vizcaino, Janson Junk, Glenn Otto (*Luis Gil)
low A: *Roansy Contreras, Jio Orozco, Harold Cortijo, Jhony Brito, Josh Maciejewski, Yoendrys Gomez (*Matt Sauer)
A lot of exciting years from top guys on this list making big jumps forward, mostly very young still: Deivi (20), Gil (21), Medina (20), Schmidt (23), Roansy (19), Yajure (21). Unfortunately all but Schmidt/Roansy are rule 5 eligible and NY will need to protect or move the other four there or risk losing them, easy to stash a high-ceiling arm as the last guy in your bullpen in a non-contending season. Yajure is the lowest rated guy there but he has dominated high A this year at 21, a 2.26 ERA in 127 innings and he is touching 97 now reportedly.
