Minor League Update

Games of August 2

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Travis Demeritte, 2B, Atlanta Braves (Double-A, Mississippi): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB
While it seems like Demeritte is blocked for the forseeable future because of Albies and Swanson; you never know what can happen, but they will find a way. Demeritte’s plus power will find a place in the big leagues, whether it is at 2B or even 3B.

Pitcher of the Day:

Garrett Williams, LHP, San Francisco Giants (High-A, San Jose): 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 10 K
While there hasn’t been much to root for on the major league squad, the minor leagues do have some intriguing players. Williams is one of them. A plus fastball/curve combination will get you noticed, but his lack of a usable change, as well as a funky delivery might be more suited in the pen.

Other Notable Performances:

Gregory Soto, LHP, Detroit Tigers (Low-A, West Michigan): 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 9 K
While older for the Midwest League at 22, the Tigers have always taken it slow with Soto. His plus fastball has been making quick work of the league, and his curve has gotten some average grades as well.
