Minor League Update

Games of August 9

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Austin Hays, OF, Baltimore Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 2-5, 2 R, 3B, HR, 5 RBI
Hays can show you all five tools. While his best tool is a plus arm, his raw power could make a case for that distinction. He’s now slugging over .600 for the season and is forcing us to make a tough decision on if him or Chance Sisco will be the top Orioles prospect next season.

Pitcher of the Day:

Corbin Martin, RHP, Houston Astros (Short-Season, Tri-City): 4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 9 K
Taken in the 2nd round of this past draft, Martin has ideal size, a big fastball, a hammer cure, a tight slider, and a usable change. The problem? He wasn’t always a starter in college, and he battled control issues until putting it all together in his junior year. The upside as a starter is huge, so he will be worked as a starter until he can’t.

Other Notable Performances:

Rookie Davis, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (Triple-A, Louisville): 4 2/3 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 10 K
The Reds claimed RHP Luke Farrell off waivers yesterday, muddying the waters for a potential call-up of Rookie (among others). Until that call-up, Rookie will just bide his time in Louisville.
