Minor League Update

Games of Wednesday, June 25

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Renato Nunez, 3B, Athletics (Stockton, A+): 4-4, 2 R, 2 HR, BB.
Nunez cares not for your questions about his hit tool or concerns about whether or not he can stay at third base. He’s just going to show off his plus power and worry about the rest later.

Pitcher of the Night: Luis Severino, RHP, Yankees (Tampa, A+): 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 6 K.
Severino’s powerful arsenal was too much for the South Atlantic League to handle, warranting a promotion to the Florida State League last week. His first start had its ups and downs, but this one did not. There are still some questions about him remaining a starter, but so far he’s having no problem attacking lineups multiple times through the order with his fastball/slider combination.

Best of the Rest

Aaron Sanchez, RHP, Blue Jays (Buffalo, AAA): 4 1/3 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 7 K. Say what you will about Sanchez’s command issues; they don’t stop him from being effective. Pitching past the fifth inning, maybe, but he’s effective.

Charlie Tilson, OF, Cardinals (Palm Beach, A+): 3-5, R, 2B, 3B. This is what Tilson does. He has a plus hit tool, but virtually all of his power comes in the gaps, which keeps him from being an impact prospect but should allow him to fill a role as a table-setter.

Dan Vogelbach, 1B, Cubs (Daytona, A+): 2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR. Vogelbach’s numbers are still suffering from a rough start to the season, but his bat is still his calling card. He’s still learning to use his power, but he controls the strike zone well, which gives him a chance to be a productive player even if he hits around .260.

In all fairness this is heavily correlated and perhaps even caused by his team not playing a game yesterday.

Do you see Crick being more of a bullpen arm in the majors because of the walk issues? Seems like he could thrive as a backend guy, perhaps even in closer role with his K stuff and limiting him to reduced appearances.

Tyler Anderson: 6 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 8 K

I know he's lower ceiling than some that get profiled here, but he'll be a major leaguer.

Rowan Wick. Insane what he's doing right now, albeit in rookie ball.

I was just about to ask Jeff his thoughts on him but you beat me to it.

I know he's got plus raw and a minimum 55 arm but that's about it.
