Minor League Update

Games of August 22

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Teoscar Hernandez, OF, Toronto Blue Jays (Triple-A, Buffalo): 4-5, 3 R, 3B, 2 HR, 3 RBI
The Astros were full of quality OF prospects, making him expendable when he was shipped to Toronto for Francisco Liriano.

Pitcher of the Day:

Antonio Santillan, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (Low-A, Dayton): 5 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
If you are looking for a pitcher with as much upside as anyone, then let me introduce you to Mr. Santillan. Armed with a premium arsenal of a 70 fastball, a slider that sometimes gets grades that high and a durable body. If you are looking for a safer option that throws strikes and is a better athlete…then let’s steer elsewhere.

Other Notable Performances:

D.J. Stewart, OF, Baltimore Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI
While the profile is tough to put a peg on, Stewart has been doing what made him a 1st rounder in 2015; which is hit. It really is a tough profile though, he has a below-average arm, is a poor athlete, a below-average runner, and might struggle to be average in left field.
