Minor League Update

Games of June 6-8

by Jeff Moore


Friday, June 6

Alberto Tirado, RHP, Blue Jays (Lansing, A-): 1 2/3 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 3 K. The first go-round in full-season ball hasn’t gone as the Blue Jays had planned for Tirado, who has had major difficulties throwing strikes. The talent is still there, so don’t get too worried about the results, as he’s hardly the first 19-year-old to have trouble with his control upon reaching the Midwest League.

Javier Baez, SS, Cubs (Iowa, AAA): 2-4, R, 2B, HR, 2 K. We’re going to see streaks from Baez throughout his career. It’s a part of his free-swinging ways. After his 11-game hitting streak toward the end of May, Baez then went three for his next 21. Then Friday happens. Even at his best, Baez should be full of ups and downs.

Jake Lamb, 3B, Diamondbacks (Mobile, AA): 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 K. Few hitters, if any, are hotter than Lamb right now, who is seeing more and more of his doubles clear the fence.

Corey Seager, SS, Dodgers (Rancho Cucamunca, A+): 3-5, 2 R, 2 HR. There are a few prospects in the minors just begging for a promotion and Seager is one of them, if for no other reason than there’s just nothing left for him to prove in the California League. The jump to Chattanooga is a daunting one and it will provide a good test for his power. He hit another bomb on Sunday for good measure.

Adam Duvall, 3B, Giants (Fresno, AAA): 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 K. Duvall has his flaws, but it’s tough to ignore 19 home runs, already two more than he hit last season. The PCL has that effect on hitters, especially those coming from Richmond, but it may be time to see just how real the power boost is, especially while Brandon Belt is out.
