Minor League Update

Games of Thursday, June 19

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Trevor Story, SS, Rockies (Modesto, A+): 3-3, 2 R, 3B, HR.
Story returned from a month on the DL (broken finger) with gusto, falling a double short of the cycle. Before the DL stint, he was performing more like the dynamic offensive player that he was thought to be entering last season, though he still hasn’t shown the power he’s thought to have to go with the strikeouts he already racks up in bunches.

Pitcher of the Night: Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Pirates (Bradenton, A+): 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K.
Control has been an issue for Glasnow, but he hasn’t allowed a run in four straight starts and has permitted just two runs total in his last six outings. He’s still raw, making up for missing the first month of the season and missing a ton of bats, all of which the Pirates will take.

Best of the Rest

Kaleb Cowart, 3B, Angels (Arkansas, AA): 2-3, 4 R, 3B, HR, BB. It hasn’t come together for Cowart the way his 2012 or Thursday’s stat line would suggest. Cowart is backing up a terrible 2013 with a similar performance, removing what little shine remains on his prospect luster.

Matt Olson, 1B, A’s (Stockton, A+): 3-4, R, 2B, HR. It’s tough to live up to the bar set by being a first-base-only prospect, especially when labeled with that distinction out of high school. Olson may not quite have the hit tool to pull it off, but he does have the power and the eye at the plate, giving him a chance.

Kenny Wilson, OF, Blue Jays (New Hampshire, AA): 4-6, 2 R, K, SB. Time is running out, if it hasn’t already, for the 24-year-old speedster, who is in his seventh professional season with a career .228 batting average.
