Minor League Update

Games of June 20-22

by Jeff Moore


Friday, June 20

Carlos Correa, SS, Astros (Lancaster, A+): 1-4, 2 R, HR. In what feels like it’s being written posthumously, Correa hit what may be his final home run of the 2014 season before suffering a leg injury on Saturday. He’ll be fine, but it might bring an end to what has been a fantastic season.

Aaron Sanchez, RHP, Blue Jays (Buffalo, AAA): 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R (2 ER), 4 BB, 4 K. In case the Blue Jays were thinking that he would miraculously find his fastball command after a promotion to Triple-A, Sanchez made certain to reassure them and all of us that he’s still the same pitcher he’s been his entire professional career. Electric arm, no command, lots of walks, lots of strikeouts, moderate effectiveness.

Tyler Wagner, RHP, Brewers (Brevard County, A+): 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K. Generally not a strikeout pitcher, this is the second time in his last four starts that Wagner has fanned at least eight.

Julio Mateo, RHP, Cardinals (GCL Cardinals, R): 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. Most GCL outings don’t last six innings, but Mateo was extremely efficient with his pitches and did not walk a batter. He generated a lot of weak contact despite sitting 88-90 most of the game, though he did get stronger as he went and hit 91 and 92 in his final inning of work. He also flashed the makings of a nice breaking ball. Extremely young, he will need to put additional weight onto his thin frame in order to increase his velocity, but it was an impressive stateside debut for the 18-year-old from the Dominican.

Kyle Schwarber, C, Cubs (Kane County, A-): 2-3, 2 R, 2B, HR, BB. The Cubs will find a level to challenge Schwarber at some point, but it hasn’t been the Midwest League yet.
