Minor League Update

Games of Tuesday, May 13

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Adam Duvall, 1B, Giants (Fresno, AAA): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, 3B, HR, K.
Duvall is a hitter with some flaws, most notably an over-aggressive approach, but his power production has returned in a serious way this season. He’s playing primarily first base now, which means the home run power will have to stick around, but with Brandon Belt out for a while, Duvall could be a temporary solution.

Pitcher of the Night: Parker Bridwell, RHP, Orioles (Frederick, A+): 8 1/3 IP, H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K.
Bridwell has been one of the most underwhelming prospects in baseball over the past few years, with performances that simply haven’t matched the raw talent. Bridwell throws 93-94 with his fastball and features inconsistent off-speed stuff, but this is what he can do when it all comes together for a night.

Best of the Rest

Cam Bedrosian, RHP, Angels (Arkansas, AA): 1 IP, 3 K. Bedrosian continues to strike out batters at the unreal rate of over two per inning.

Josh Hader, LHP, Astros (Lancaster, A+): 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 6 K. Hader used a 90-94 mph fastball to do his part in what would ultimately become a no-hitter for the JetHawks. He still struggles with his command, as evidenced by the walks, but he can miss bats.

D.J. Davis, OF, Blue Jays (Lansing, A-): 3-5, R, HR, BB, K, SB, CS. It was a little bit of everything for Davis on Tuesday night. He has been striking out as though all of his at-bats are coming against Bedrosian. Despite his off-the-charts speed, Davis is now just 5-for-13 stealing bases.
