Minor League Update

Games of June 14

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Grayson Greiner, C, Detroit Tigers (Double-A, Erie): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI
Drafted in the 3rd round in 2014 from the University of South Carolina-Columbia. Grayson is a unicorn as he is a 6’6” catcher who can stick behind the plate. A broken hamate bone in 2015 set his development back as he is still looking to regain some power that he has in his body.

Pitcher of the Day:

A.J. Puk, LHP, Oakland Athletics (High-A, Stockton): 6.2 IP, 5 H, R, ER, 1 BB, 11 K
Drafted in the 1st round in 2016 from the University of Florida. Are there things he needs to work on? Sure. He still walks a lot of guys, doesn’t have great command, and is still learning his body. But of all the negatives, the positives are really showing so far.

Other Notable Performances:

Mickey Moniak, OF, Philadelphia Phillies (Low-A, Lakewood): 4-5, R, 2B, BB
Drafted in the 1st round in 2016 from La Costa Canyon HS in Carlsbad, CA. One thing that everyone wondered about is how much power he can add to his frame. If he adds too much he might be a LF, too little and he becomes more of a slappy CF type.
