Minor League Update

Games of May 23-26

by Jeff Moore


While I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend, and I know I did, let’s not forget that we got the extra day off not so our big-league heroes could wear camouflage uniforms, but to honor the real heroes who wore those colors because they had to.

Friday, May 23

Domingo Santana, OF, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 2-6, 2 R, HR, 3 K. You’re going to have to take the good with the bad with Santana, who is going to have his strikeout issues and won’t hit for a terribly high average but will do his fair share of damage via the long ball. Santana would go on to hit two more home runs on Saturday, giving him nine on the season.

Clint Coulter, C, Brewers (Wisconsin, A-): 2-5, 2 R, HR, K. Twenty extra-base hits at this point in the season is impressive, especially for a catcher, but having almost as many walks as strikeouts is even more of a positive sign. If he can stay behind the plate, Coulter could be a real asset with the bat.

Oscar Taveras, OF, Cardinals (Memphis, AAA): 2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR, BB, K. For those who were wondering if other outfielders on the Cardinals depth chart had jumped over Taveras while he was injured, he’s now hitting .319/.369/.527 on the season, and even that feels a bit disappointing. He’s still the man for the Cardinals, as soon as they decide they’re ready for him.

D.J. Peterson, 3B, Mariners (High Desert, A+): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR. When Peterson’s aggressiveness at the plate doesn’t get the best of him, he can do some real damage. The power is real, and he has enough raw power even if he has to move over to first base, though it remains to be seen if enough of it will play in games.

Kris Bryant put up 2 days this weekend where he went 2-3, HR, BB, K. The HRs just aren't stopping with this kid.

On the "under the radar" front, Detroit SS Eugenio Suarez had a nice Memorial Day weekend after his recent call-up to AAA: 5-11, including 3 2Bs and a HR.

Christian Walker is having a great season and dropped two more bombs yesterday. Has he improved his prospects enough that we should all start paying attention? Or is this just a lucky year for him?
