Minor League Update

Games of April 18th

by Steve Givarz


Pitcher of the Day:

Triston McKenzie, RHP, Cleveland Indians (High-A, Lynchburg): 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB 8 K
The concern with McKenzie isn’t so much stuff—he has plenty in his arsenal—it's his size and whether he can add weight. His stuff is gaudy—a plus fastball with dominant life, a curveball with tight spin and lots of depth, a changeup with fade and run, and he throws all of them for strikes. But at 6-foot-5 and 165 pounds, he needs to add more to his frame.

Hitter of the Day:

Andrew Stevenson, OF, Washington Nationals (Double-A, Harrisburg): 5-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI
Well then, back-to-back five-hit performances for Stevenson. Maybe he took offense to me not naming him the Hitter of the Day the first time. He sure showed me.

Other Notable Performances:

Lewis Brinson, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (Triple-A, Colorado Springs): 4-6, 2B, 2 R, HR, 5 RBI, K
We’ve talked a lot about Brinson, and rightfully so. He has tools and impact potential in center field, plus he has also cut down on his strikeouts. All of this could force Milwaukee’s hand sooner rather than later.
