Minor League Update

Games of July 3-6

by Jeff Moore


Thursday, July 3

Jose Peraza, 2B, Braves (Mississippi, AA): 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, K. SB. There’s virtually no power in Peraza’s game, but if he’s going to hit over .350, it won’t matter. He won’t, of course, do that at higher levels, but he has handled his promotion to Double-A with aplomb.

Adam Conley, LHP, Marlins (New Orleans, AAA): 5 2/3 IP, 2 H, R, 6 BB, 2 K. Conley has maintained strikeout rates relative to his career norms since a promotion to Triple-A, but his already fringy walk rate has spiked up past levels where it needs to be to get hitters out consistently.

Nick Williams, OF, Rangers (Myrtle Beach, A+): 2-3, 2 R, HR, BB. The guys who can get away with BB:K ratios as extreme as Williams’ are rare, but he may just have the hit tool to pull it off. If he doesn’t become more patient, he’ll need to hit every bit of .300 to be a productive offensive player, but that’s well within reach for Williams.

Friday, July 4

Adrian Houser, RHP, Astros (Quad Cities, A-): 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 8 K. Houser has spouted potential for a few years now without a ton to show for it, but the tall right-hander is in full-season ball now, and, while he’s not blowing anyone away, he is holding his own.

I hope for Wilmer Flores' sake, the Mets trade him. Clearly Alderson and Collins aren't fans judging by the amount of time he spends on the big league bench. I hope he goes somewhere else and becomes a solid regular.

Dillon Overton on his Tommy John rehab tour just struck out 8 in 3 shutout innings.

In the Dwight Smith entry you talk about "Stewart". Is there a mix-up?

No, just a Freudian Slip because I considered making a Shannon Stewart comp as his ceiling.

Is JaCoby Jones putting it together, or just a college bat feasting on A ball pitching?

On McCullers; he's just coming off a month-long DL stint, so the two innings were planned. And aside from that, the Astros use the tandem system thing, so he doesn't usually pitch more than 4-5 innings in a game anyway.

Is the Quad-A label a possibility in the near term with Wilmer Flores?

He's a better hitter than that, so he doesn't deserve that label. What he needs is an organization that will play him.
