Minor League Update

Games of Thursday, May 8

by Jeff Moore


Hitters of the Night:

Jorge Alfaro, C, Rangers (Myrtle Beach, A+): 3-5, 3 R, 3B, HR.
There aren’t too many catchers who possess an 80-grade arm and can hit triples, which gives you a good idea of Alfaro’s unique and impressive skill set.

Francisco Lindor, SS, Indians (Akron, AA): 3-5, R, HR.
I went with two hitters of the night because the thought of having to choose one of these players over the other might just be enough to make Jason Parks’ head explode and disrupt the space-time continuum. Lindor has just enough pop to keep him from being an Elvis Andrus clone, and he should be an even better version with more offensive value.

Pitcher of the Night: Trevor Bauer, RHP, Indians (Columbus, AAA): 7 2/3 IP, 3 H, R, 2 BB, 9 K.
Bauer is attacking the strike zone better than ever and has proven himself in Triple-A. There’s little reason for him not to get a chance in Cleveland.

Best of the Rest

Jonathan Singleton, 1B, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 3-5, 2 R, HR. With 11 home runs now, it’s hard to imagine Singleton is far behind former teammate George Springer on the caravan to the big leagues.
