Minor League Update

Games of May 30

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Tyler Hill, OF, Boston Red Sox (Low-A, Greenville): 4-4, 3 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 3 BB (DH)
A quality athlete, Hill exploded on the scene last year with a quality performance in Short-Season Lowell. Now in full-season ball, Hill has brought his impressive bat speed, speed, and emerging raw power with him. While still learning the difficulties of the OF (he was a C to start his career), his athleticism and speed give him a chance to be average defensively.

Pitcher of the Day:

Tyler Mahle, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (Double-A, Pensacola): 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 9 K
With Jackson Stephens getting the call up to the big leagues yesterday, could Mahle find himself next? Mahle has some of the best fastball command you will find in the minors, and it isn’t a slouch pitch either, it is a plus offering. Did I mention he has a whole range of average to above-average secondaries too?

Other Notable Performances:

Johan Mieses, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers (Double-A, Tulsa): 2-4, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
In an eyewitness from Wilson Karaman last season on Mieses, he made sure to note that “He's the handshake guy, has one with a solid dozen-plus players”.
