Minor League Update

Games of Thursday, June 5

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Rymer Liriano, OF, Padres (San Antonio, AA): 3-4, R, 2B, HR.
It took some time for Liriano to get his timing back after a year lost to Tommy John surgery, but when he did, the power grew into his swing much like scouts believed it always would. His approach may keep him from being a star, but he should be an above-average regular at a corner outfield spot.

Pitcher of the Night: Jose Urena, RHP, Marlins (Jacksonville, AA): 8 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 7 K.
Urena’s peripherals have taken a step back since a promotion to Double-A, but he still profiles as a mid-rotation starter. You can read a full report on him from Ethan Purser here.

Best of the Rest

Deck McGuire, RHP, Blue Jays (Buffalo, AAA): 7 IP, 3 H, R, BB, 10 K. An uncharacteristic high-strikeout performance on Thursday is nice, but it’s not McGuire’s game. The former first-rounder gets by throwing a ton of strikes and sinking the ball, and thereby generating poor contact. He’s finally out of Double-A and will provide the Blue Jays with depth this season. He profiles as a back-end starter.

Orlando Arcia, SS, Brewres (Brevard County, A+): 4-4, 2 R, 2B, BB, SB. Arcia will always be glove-first, and there won’t be much power to go with it, but there is a chance the hit tool comes around enough to warrant everyday playing time.

Arismendy Alcantara, 2B, Cubs (Iowa, AAA): 2-4, R, HR, K. The approach is still a little aggressive for my liking and is getting exposed against Triple-A pitching, but the power is coming in nicely and will play beautifully at second base even if he ends up having a low on-base percentage.

Syndargaard was hurt covering the plate on a wild pitch. Apparently hurt his shoulder or collarbone colliding with the base runner.

Re: Thor's shoulder injury, was it to the throwing or non-throwing shoulder? Injury happened on collision while covering the plate.

Important question - can we find out if Dalton's batting music is the Bastille song?

Joc Pederson has been out of the line up pretty often lately. Any idea why?

T. Hernandez 4-5 1HR and some other stats.
