Minor League Update

Games of June 27-29

by Jeff Moore


Friday, June 27

Domingo Santana, OF, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 4-5, 3 R, HR, K. The fact that Santana is now hitting over .300 probably has something to do with the effect of the PCL, but the fact that he’s slugging over .500 does not. Santana could stand a to have a little more contact in his game and refine his approach at the plate, but that’s probably not going to happen at this point. He’s close to being a finished product, if he’s not there already, and should be joining the Astros soon.

Richard Urena, SS, Blue Jays (Bluefield, SS): 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR. Known for his defensive skills and ability to stick at shortstop, Urena flashed a little rare power on Friday and could show more.

Orlando Arcia, SS, Brewers (Brevard County, SS): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, HR. Arcia is doing a better job of driving the gaps recently and could end up with average doubles power, but the home runs are always going to be below average. Still, with a solid approach at the plate and a good glove, that’s a nice player. He also doubled and homered again on Saturday.

Arismendy Alcantara, 2B, Cubs (Iowa, AAA): 4-6, 3 R, HR, K. Man, he’s a lot better than Darwin Barney. It’s probably time to see him at Wrigley.

Alex Jackson, OF, Mariners (AZL, R): 0-4, 3 K. We’re not in high school anymore, Toto.
