Minor League Update

Games of Wednesday, May 28

by Jeff Moore


Hitters of the Night

Carlos Correa, SS, Astros (Lancaster, A+): 3-4, R, 2B, HR. There is little doubt that Correa is going to be a very good player, even though he’s still just 19 and a few years away from the majors. The big question is just how good. If he remains at shortstop and his power reaches its ceiling, he’ll end up being among the top five players in the game.

Kris Bryant, 3B, Cubs (Tennessee, AA): 4-4, R, 2B, HR, BB. Stop it, Kris Bryant. Just stop it. On second thought, Cubs fans have had it hard enough. Four hits for Kris Bryant. You go, Kris Bryant.

Pitcher of the Night: Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Pirates (Bradenton, A+): 5 2/3 IP, H, 0 R, 2 BB, 12 K.
Glasnow got a late start to the season, then watched his control waver even more than it did last year when he was leading the minors in strikeouts. When he throws strikes like he did on Wednesday, he doesn’t get hit. Not even weakly.

Best of the Rest

Marcus Knecht, OF, Blue Jays (Dunedin, A+): 4-4, R, 2 2B, BB. A limited hitter and limited defensive player, Knecht reserves his damage typically for when the pitcher makes a mistake. He’s over-aggressive and gets himself out frequently, but his size does make him capable of doing some damage when he gets his pitch.
