Minor League Update

Games of Tuesday, August 27

by Zach Mortimer


“The Good”

  • William Argo, OF, Rays (High-A Charlotte): 2-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI. Argo is a plus runner who normally relies on his speed offensively. The power is limited and he may not make enough contact against quality pitching. He has put together a very solid season and can put himself on the back end of a deep Rays prospect list; .306/.359/.583 with 4 2B and 2 HR in last 36 at-bats.
  • Clayton Blackburn, RHP, Giants (High-A San Jose): 6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. Blackburn offers a mature arsenal. He features a fastball and a curveball, both of which grade out as plus, and also throws a developing changeup. Blackburn should be able to move into Double-A seamlessly in 2014 and put himself in line to contribute at the major-league level in 2015.
