Minor League Update

Games of May 16

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Ozhaino Albies, SS, Atlanta Braves (Triple-A, Gwinnett): 3-3, 3 R, HR, RBI, 2 BB, SB
I know you guys were freaking out a little about Albies to start this season. While he did not get off to a great start, calm your horses. He will play the entire season at Triple-A as a 20-year-old, 6.7 years younger than the average player in the International League. Could he be in the big leagues this season? Sure. But let’s not rush this.

Pitcher of the Day:

Luis Ortiz, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers (Double-A, Biloxi): 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K
Playing at Double-A as a 21-year-old, Ortiz was part of the Lucroy package at the trade deadline from Texas last season. His fastball/slider combination are easy plusses and he has potential above-average command of those offerings as well. While he has been slowed at times by injuries he has a strong build and looks the part of a mid-rotation starter.

Other Notable Performances:

Rafael Devers, 3B, Boston Red Sox (Double-A, Portland): 3-6, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K
Perhaps Devers needs a new challenge.
