Minor League Update

Games of June 13

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Zack Collins, C, Chicago White Sox (High-A, Winston-Salem): 2-3, R, 2B, HR, RBI, BB, K
Drafted in the first round in 2016 from the University of Miami (FL). Collins has hit a roadblock in High-A, working deep counts, but striking out a lot, making a detriment of his patience at times. He still has an OBP of over .380, and is slugging over .440. Reports on his catching seem mixed as he can struggle with receiving and lacks overall athleticism behind the plate.

Pitcher of the Day:

Luis Castillo, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (Double-A, Pensacola): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 13 K
Signed out of the Dominican Republic in December 2011. Castillo blew up last season, and was so good that he was traded twice! Owner of an 80-grade FB, Castillo has improved the quality of his secondaries to the point where hitters who are cheating on the heat will now look foolish once he drops something else.

Other Notable Performances:

Jahmai Jones, OF, Los Angeles Angels (Low-A, Burlington): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, K
Drafted in the 2nd round in 2015 from Wesleyan HS in Norcross, GA. It was jokingly assumed that whoever the Angels drafted 10th overall (Jo Adell in this case) would become the top prospect. Did I say Angels? I meant Marlins.
