Minor League Update

Games of September 11

by Wilson Karaman


Hitter of the Day:

Hudson Potts, 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 2-4, R, 2B, HR, RBI, 2 K
We’re getting down to the dregs here in terms of still-happening playoff series providing options here, but Potts had himself yet another nice night at the dish. Heck, we might as well rename this site Hudson Potts Prospectus, what with all the hot Potts #content we’ve been churning out lately. You want some notes from the field? Boom. Or maybe you’re a longer-form fella or gal? Boom. There’s a bunch of youthful impatience underlying his present approach, but he just hit his 20th dinger as an 18-year-old in full-season ball, so perhaps some patience is warranted here.

Pitcher of the Day:

Michel Baez, RHP, San Diego Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 5 IP, 2 H, BB, 7 K
Doin’ his part in a three-hit shutout to clinch a playoff series, because that’s how Michel Baez do. Between Baez’s Low-A breakout and Doug Fister’s restored juju, 2017 has been the Year of the 6-Foot-8 Right-Hander. In case you missed it, there are NSFW .gifs of Baez’s work available for your viewing pleasure here. Don’t operate heavy machinery after watching.

Other Prospects of Note:

Nate Pearson, RHP, Toronto Blue Jays (Short-Season Vancouver): 4 IP, ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 K
The 28th overall pick in June has the kind of straight cheddar that’s a bit much for short-season hitters, as the 11 measly hits he’s allowed through his first 28 pro innings can attest. Now, can he consistently harness his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame and keep those triple-digit laser beams honed in the strike zone? Well, we’ll all learn that together. So far, however, he’s done a reasonable job.
