Minor League Update

Games of Monday, May 12

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Patrick Leonard, 3B, Rays (Charlotte, A+): 4-4, 3 R, 2 HR, BB, SB. You know Leonard as that other guy the Rays got in the James Shields/Wil Myers deal, but he has plus power and his hit tool is playing better this season than it has in the past.

Pitcher of the Night: Hunter Harvey, RHP, Orioles (Delmarva, A-): 7 IP, H, 0 R, 1 BB, 10 K.
As the weather warms up, so does Harvey. The Orioles would like to take it slow with last year’s prep first-rounder, but the South Atlantic League has yet to give him an appropriate level of competition. He may force their hand.

Best of the Rest

Michael Feliz, RHP, Astros (Quad Cities, A-): 3 1/3 IP, 2 H, R, 0 BB, 6 K. At this point, Feliz is still a two-pitch pitcher—which, when one of them is a 96-mph fastball, is more than enough to miss bats in Low-A ball. He projects as a reliever down the road, however.

Domingo Santana, OF, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 2-4, R, HR. There will always be some flaws in Santana’s game as a hitter, but not enough to limit his production. His strike out numbers are higher than you’d like, but they always have been, and it’s yet to truly limit his power output. He should pop enough out of the park to justify playing time in right field.

Jonathan Singleton, 1B, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 2-4, R, HR. Singleton, on the other hand, is a much more refined hitter than his Redhawks teammate, and he has answered any questions about his desire or playing shape from last season. He slugged his 12th home run of the season on Monday.
