Minor League Update

Games of August 15

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Brian Miller, OF, Miami Marlins (Low-A, Greensboro): 4-4, 3 R, 4 2B, 4 RBI, BB
Chosen 36th overall in the 2017 draft, Miller looks like an everyday player in center field, which would be big for the team. While the only tool that stands out is plus speed, he has a knack for making contact, getting balls in the outfield, and getting on base.

Pitcher of the Day:

Brock Burke, LHP, Tampa Bay Rays (High-A, Port Charlotte): 8 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 12 K
Our own Javier Barragan was at this gem. While he's working on a longer report, he did offer me this: “87-92, T93, throws strikes, manipulates fastball. Good curve, average change, deceptive. Good to be left-handed.”

Other Notable Performances:

Eric Skoglund, LHP, Kansas City Royals (Triple-A, Omaha): 5 2/3 IP, 4 H, 0 R, BB, 9 K
While he did make his major-league debut this season, Skoglund has given up a lot of contact. His fastball lacks life, and can be hittable when he is working 88-90, instead of 90-93.
