Minor League Update

Games of August 8

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Isaac Paredes, SS, Detroit Tigers (Low-A, West Michigan): 4-6, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI
Just acquired from the Cubs in the Justin Wilson trade, Paredes seems to be adjusting quickly. While on the smaller side, Paredes does have good raw power, which has been playing this year with a lot of extra base hits. While he might not be a SS long term, he profiles at either 2B or 3B.

Pitcher of the Day:

Bryse Wilson, RHP, Atlanta Braves (Low-A, Rome): 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, BB, 11 K
I mentioned Wilson in his last start on August 2nd, and he obviously wanted me to mention him again and make him the pitcher of the day. This performance gets the nod. A 4th rounder from the 2016 draft, at his best Wilson can show a plus heater, plus slider, usable change, and a lot of strikes.

Other Notable Performances:

Danville Braves Pitching Staff, Atlanta Braves (Rookie, Danville): 7 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 8 K
- Bruce Zimmerman, LHP, 2 IP, BB, 2 K. A 5th rounder from this year’s draft, his fastball is 90-92 and was mainly a priority senior sign as he signed for 10K.
