Minor League Update

Games of June 12

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Michael Chavis, 3B, Boston Red Sox (High-A, Salem): 3-3, 3 R, 3 H, HR, RBI
Drafted in the 1st round, in the 2014 MLB Draft from Sprayberry HS in Marietta GA, Chavis big raw power has showcased itself into more game power than ever before. He has already surpassed his prior career high (16) and while the K’s are high, if he is slugging .694, I think we can overlook it.

Pitcher of the Day:

Corbin Burnes, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers (Double-A, Biloxi): 6 IP, H, 0 R, BB, 8 K
Drafted in the 4th round, in the 2016 MLB draft from St. Mary’s University (Texas), Burnes has proved himself at every stop so far. After dominating High-A, a promotion to Double-A has not slowed him down one bit. He is throwing 3 pitches for strikes, his fastball is plus, his command is exceptional, and he is getting swings and misses on his slider as well.

Other Notable Performances:

Antonio Santos, RHP, Colorado Rockies (Low-A, Asheville): 6 2/3 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K
Signed from the Dominican Republic on July 2, 2015 for 50K, Santos has been the worth the small investment. He has a plus fastball with potential plus control, as well as a potential average curve and change.
