Minor League Update

Games of September 12th

by Wilson Karaman


Hitter of the Day:

Alex Call, CF, Chicago White Sox (Low-A Kannapolis): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, 3B, RBI.
Last year’s third-rounder for the Pale Hose has scuffled at times during his first full pro season, raising questions about whether his less-than-fluid stroke will play against more advanced pitching. He’s got a nice batch of tools out of the box and on the grass, though, with plenty of arm to handle all three outfield spots. If the stick takes a step forward next year it’d go a long way towards solidifying a fourth-outfielder trajectory.

Pitcher of the Day:

Ryan Yarbrough, RHP, Tampa Bay Rays (Triple-A Durham): 7 IP, 3 H, 4 K.
I wrote up Yarbrough’s impressive evolution recently in this very space, and after a clunker in his next turn he’s now rebounded with three outstanding efforts since to possibly close out his season. This start was a righteous shot across the bow to open the Governor’s Cup. Let’s bracket future value considerations for a second and all tip our collective caps together on account of Yarbrough having himself a truly excellent season at Triple-A this year.

Other Prospects of Note:

Willy Adames, SS, Tampa Bay Rays (Triple-A Durham): 2-3, BB, R.
Be still, John Eshleman’s heart, be still. Whilst attempting to mask his giggity-giggity in conversation with a veteran scout t’other day, Uncle Jack coaxed this report: “I mean, what's not to like? He's a regular at short who can hit at the very minimum, because he's only a half season away." A 50 floor at the six is, ah, a pretty good prospect, no?
