Minor League Update

AFL Recap for Games of October 21

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Day: Addison Russell, SS, Athletics (Mesa Solar Sox): 2-5, R, 2B, HR. It would be understandable if Russell was wearing down playing extended games at the end of his first full season. We saw the same thing happen with Mike Trout in his time in the AFL, and it didn’t exactly slow him down. Russell was hitting just .217 before Monday, but he displayed why he is one of the best prospects in baseball with a multi-extra-base hit game.

Pitcher of the Day: Jason Adam, RHP, Royals (Peoria Javelinas): 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Adam has now turned in two straight strong starts after a rough first AFL outing, and it Monday’s outing was his most impressive, missing more bats than he typically does.

Seeing it Well

  • Japhet Amador, 1B, Astros (Peoria javelinas): 1-4, R, HR, 2 K. I don’t know how well Amador is actually seeing the ball right now, but the Astros could see a lot of stat lines like his from Monday afternoon, where he connected on a home run but also struck out twice. If he can manage to hit around .250 and run into his home runs, he’ll play for the Astros next season.
