NOTES: As you can see in previous posts, Trenton and the Yankees extended their Player Development Contract through 2022, an eight-year extension. ... Tony Franklin won the Eastern League's Manager of the Year award. ... From comments made on Wednesday by Mark Newman and then again by Franklin today, it seems a good possibility that there will be a little more roster shuffling when Sept. 1 comes along. ... Franklin said that they have not finalized their postseason rotation, though it seems likely that Brett Marshall will take the ball on Wednesday in Reading. ... Abe Almonte has not done any baseball activity since hitting the DL again early this month. That makes it very unlikely that he will be a part of the postseason.
