Minor League Update

Games of Wednesday, July 31st

by Chris Rodriguez


Pitching Prospect of the Day: Jamie Callahan, RHP, Red Sox (Low-A Spinners): 6.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K. The 18-year-old had been struggling in 2013, but in his last two starts he’s given up one hit and struck out 17 over 12 innings. He features a low-90s fastball and a 12-to-6 curve.

Position Prospect of the Day: Austin Hedges, C, Padres (High-A Lake Elsinore): 3-5, 2B, HR, 3 R, 4 RBI, 1 K. Known for his defensive prowess, Hedges has yet to get into a groove at the plate thus far this season.
