Minor League Update

Games of Sunday, August 18

by Zach Mortimer


Pitching Prospect of the Day: Thomas Harlan, LHP, Pirates (Low-A West Virginia): 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K. A big-bodied left-handed pitcher from Fresno State, Harlan is not really a heralded prospect, but hey, on this night he had it all working.

Position Prospect of the Day: Colin Moran, 3B, Marlins (Low-A Greensboro): 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 R, RBI, K. Moran was drafted so highly because he was at the top of the list of polished college bats. He has a great feel for the strike zone and the power should be enough to play. I've heard whispers that some wonder about the level of power he will develop; he also may have some issues defensively. These are only small warning flags and Moran developed a pedigree at the University of North Carolina that makes him an instant prospect; .306/.325/.500 with 1 2B and 2 HR in last 36 at-bats.

Other notable prospect performances on August 18:
