Minor League Update

Games of April 4-6

by Jeff Moore


Friday, April 4

Kevin Gausman, RHP, Orioles (Norfolk, AAA): 4 2/3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. Gausman was on a strict pitch count, leaving the game after 71 pitches, and it’s likely that the Orioles are going to build his endurance up early in the minor-league season so that he has something left in the tank for when he’s in the majors down the stretch, hopefully in meaningful games.

Trevor Bauer, RHP, Indians (Columbus, AAA): 6 IP, 2 H, R, 2 BB, 9 K. Two walks in six innings is a big step in the right direction for Bauer, as is missing bats. He spent the offseason refining things in his mechanics, but otherwise, there’s not much left for him to prove in the minors.

Kyle Parker, OF, Rockies (Colorado Springs, AAA): 3-4, 2 R, HR, BB. Power has never been a question for Parker, and it appears he’s going to hit enough to let it play at the highest level. He’ll never be a high-average hitter, but he’ll hit for enough power to make up for it and fit the corner-outfield profile.

Daniel Corcino, RHP, Reds (Pensacola, AA): 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, BB, 8 K. After he stumbled badly in Triple-A last year, the Reds sent Corcino back to Double-A to begin 2014. He’s already had success at the level, but he needs to prove he can throw more strikes.

Addison Russell, SS, A’s (Midland, AA): 2-2, R, HR. There’s a debate going on in the halls of the BP campus about which shortstop prospect you’d want to start a team with, and Russell is in the discussion.
