Minor League Update

Games of July 12th

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Fernando Tatis Jr., 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A, Fort Wayne): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI
Until he hits 3 grand slams in one inning, I will always think of the father before I think of the son. Tatis’ plus raw power has been playing more and more, and pair that with his plus speed and average defensive skills and this could be an everyday regular.

Pitcher of the Day:

Shaun Anderson, RHP, Boston Red Sox (High-A, Salem): 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, BB, 6 K
Everyone talks about Dane Dunning going from college reliever to pro starter, but they forget to mention Shaun Anderson. Serving as the closer for UF, Anderson hasn’t done as well as Dunning, but is more than holding his own. His plus fastball, plus slider and above-average control are all good qualities. What will determine his future fate though is his changeup, which is a fringe-average offering.

Other Notable Performances:

Nick Neidert, RHP, Seattle Mariners (High-A, Modesto): 5 IP, 5 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 8 K
If you are looking for flashy radar readings, then you won’t come away impressed by Neidert. What he does do well is pitch, throw four pitches for strikes, gets swings and misses on his change, and enjoy quick outings.
