Minor League Update

Games of April 7, 2014

by Jeff Moore


A typically light Monday schedule and rain throughout the East and limited the amount of minor-league action we have to choose from, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give you something to read at your desk this morning.

Hitter of the Day
Trevor Story, SS, Rockies (Modesto, A+): 5-6, 2 R, 2B, 3B, HR, K, SB. In one of those crazy California League games that included 26 runs and 37 hits, Story took full advantage, hitting for the cycle and stealing a base. Story was expected to put up gaudy numbers in the Cal League last season, so perhaps this is him getting a late start on things.

Pitcher of the Day
Michael Lorenzen, RHP, Reds (Pensacola, AA): 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K. This was by far the best performance of Lorenzen’s short professional career, as he displayed the control that has eluded him thus far. His arm has never been in doubt, but as a two-way player in college, he has some catching up to do. This is a good start. If he can throw strikes like this, especially for extended periods of time and when seeing the same hitters multiple times in a game, he could move quickly.

Best of the Rest

Jonathan Singleton, 1B, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 2-4, R, 2 2B, BB, 2 K. After struggling mightily in Triple-A last year, Singleton appears to be getting his footing at the minors’ most advanced level, showing good patience at the plate in the early going and now adding power into the mix.
