Minor League Update

Games of July 24

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Ronald Acuna, OF, Atlanta Braves (Triple-A, Gwinnett): 4-5, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI
So Acuna started out in High-A at 19, aggressive, but he did well in 2016 so he could’ve used the challenge. Then he crushed that, was sent to Double-A for a real challenge, Acuna said, “I’ll just hit .326/.374/.520”. Then was sent to Triple-A…oh yea, he’s still 19.

Pitcher of the Day:

Grant Holmes, RHP, Oakland Athletics (Double-A, Midland): 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K
Still large, Holmes has only kind of been in charge this year. The stuff that helped him get through the low-minors, hit a wall at Double-A as he has had to learn more about pitch ability. The stuff is still there, highlighted by a plus heater/curve combo, it just needs more strikes.

Other Notable Performances:

Enyel De Los Santos, RHP, San Diego Padres (Double-A, San Antonio): 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K
Acquired for Joaquin Benoit in 2014, Enyel has shot up the ranks since that trade. His plus heater/change combo gets him swings and misses from both sides, but his curve is more fringe-average than average.
