Minor League Update

Games of July 11

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Kevin Cornelius, 1B/3B, Chicago Cubs (Double-A, Tennessee): 4-5, 3 R, 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, K
Cornelius isn’t a prospect, but he had a good day, it was also a light day for the minor leagues. He was selected in the rule 5 minor league portion of the draft this past season. You know who else was taken as a Rule 5 minor leaguers? Justin Bour.

Pitcher of the Day:

Spencer Adams, RHP, Chicago White Sox (Double-A, Birmingham): 7 1/3 IP, 2 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 12 K
Chicago's second-round pick in 2014, Spencer has been on a nice run of late and now sports an 89/18 K/BB ratio in 106 2/3 innings at Double-A. His 12 strikeouts were a season-high and just the second time he's whiffed more than eight in a game this year.

Other Notable Performances:

Kevin Merrell, SS, Oakland Athletics (Short-Season, Vermont): 4-7, R, RBI, 2 SB, 2 K (DH)
Taken in the Competitive Balance round of this past draft, Merrell was one of my favorite players from this past draft. He is an 80 runner who looks more and more like he can stick at SS, while offering power, and a potential plus hit tool.
