Minor League Update

Games of June 15

by Wilson Karaman


Hitter of the Day:

Bo Bichette, SS, Toronto Blue Jays (Low-A Lansing): 7-8, BB, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 5 RBI, K, SB
Well, that’s one way to navigate a doubleheader. Bichette has been laying waste to Midwest League pitching this season, with yesterday’s outburst lifting him to .400 for the season. The approach stands out, and the bat speed ain’t bad either. With High-A looming, Bichette has a chance to evolve into one of the premier offensive prospects in the minors by years end if he can continue his assault at the next level.

Pitcher of the Day:

Shawn Morimando, LHP, Cleveland Indians (Triple-A Columbus): 9 IP, 5 H, 3 BB, 2 K
Not the most glamorous peripherals, but when you tie off a complete game shutout against one of the best offenses in your Triple-A league, the day is yours. Morimando’s your average pitchability lefty, though an improved slider will flash out-pitch qualities from time to time. He debuted last year, and as a durable southpaw he’s highly likely to drink more big-league joe in the future.

Other Prospects of Note:

Ryan McMahon, 1B/2B/3B, Colorado Rockies (Triple-A Albuquerque): 4-4, BB, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, SB
Let’s call this effort worthy of “Hitter-b of the Day” standing. McMahon has bounced around the infield in order to increase his versatility and opportunity to crack the big club’s roster, and he’s rebounded pretty well in full from last year’s ugly effort in the box. He’s likely to find himself in Denver at some point this year.
