Minor League Update

Games of August 10

by Wilson Karaman


Hitter of the Day:

Nick Senzel, 3B, Cincinnati Reds (Double-A Pensacola): 3-4, BB, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, SB, K
Senzel has done pretty much exactly what scouts predicted he’d do at every stage of his development thus far. He’s a really good hitter, and the pop has really started to translate from the doubles kind to the over-the-fence kind since he elevated beyond the Florida State League.

Pitcher of the Day:

Nick Kingham, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 9 IP, ER, 2 H, 8 K, HRA
He needed just 85 pitches to complete this one, yielding nothing but an infield hit until Brandon Snyder got him for a solo shot in the seventh. His hallmark command of three average-or-better pitches appears to have remained intact through Tommy John rehab, and while he doesn’t possess the sexiest upside in Pittsburgh’s system, he’s real close to big-league ready, and should fill out many a rotation over the years to come.

Other Prospects of Note:

Rowdy Tellez, 1B, Toronto Blue Jays (Triple-A Buffalo): 3-3, 2 BB, 2B, 3 RBI
It’s been a really rough season for Tellez at the dish, but he’s been crushing the ball of late during a nine-game hit streak. It’s not an overwhelming projection with the bat, but it’s good enough that nobody should’ve abandoned ship after some struggles as a young 22-year-old in Triple A.
