Minor League Update

Games of July 8-10

by Christopher Crawford


Prospect of the Weekend:

Brendan Rodgers, SS, Colorado Rockies (Low-A Asheville): 5-for-8, 3 R, 2 HR, 2 K.
That’s a pretty good doubleheader for Mr. Rodgers. He’s actually seen his numbers drop down over the past couple of weeks, but I think you/I/the Rockies will take a .867 OPS from a shortstop in his first professional season. There are safer shortstop prospects, but in terms of just upside, I’m not sure there’s a better one than Brendan Rodgers.

Others of Note

Friday:

Tom Murphy, C, Rockies (Triple-A Albuquerque): 3-for-3, 3 R HR, BB. Hey! A walk! That makes five! Murphy’s approach has regressed heavily, but his above-average power and good-enough defense still give him a chance to start.

Trevor Williams, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. Williams must be kind of lonely after seeing all of his rotation mates getting call-ups. With four usable pitches and improving command, he might get his chance soon.
