  • Matt Adams, 1B, Cardinals (Javelinas): 2-for-5, 2B, HR (1), 2 R, RBI, K. Approach is the only issue scouts have with him, and he's not helping that case with zero walks over 23 at-bats.
  • Chih-Hsien Chiang, OF, Mariners (Javelinas): 3-for-4, 2B, R, BB. First big game in Arizona; scouts don't like him as much as the numbers, but he can hit.
  • Brandon Crawford, SS, Giants (Scorpions): 3-for-4, 3B, 2 R, CS. Giants hope he can just because a good enough hitter to play every day and hit eighth.
  • Grant Green, OF, Athletics (Desert Dogs): 2-for-5, 2 R, K. Focus more on outfield play than bat, and he's made considerable improvements with the glove.
  • Robbie Grossman, OF, Pirates (Solar Sox): 2-for-5, RBI. Generating buzz with his performance so far in Arizona; no star tools, but no weakness in his game, either.
  • Jedd Gyorko, 3B, Padres (Javelinas): 2-for-4, HR (1), R, 3 RBI, BB. 5-for-9 in two games; he's hard not to like as a non-athlete with a plus bat and outstanding makeup.
  • Ryan Jackson, SS, Cardinals (Javelinas): 3-for-5, 2B, 2 RBI, K. 7-for-14 in first four AFL games; defense has always been there, and bat continues to develop.
  • Wil Myers, OF, Royals (Saguaros): 1-for-3, HR (2), R, RBI, 2 BB. Has earned some glowing reports in just four games; finally healthy?
  • Mike Olt, 3B, Rangers (Saguaros): 3-for-4, 2 HR (4), 2 R, 2 RBI, BB. Early league leader in several offensive categories; could be Rangers best trade chip, or first baseman of the future.
  • Forrest Snow, RHP, Mariners (Javelinas): 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K. In an offensive environment, he's whiffed seven over five perfect frames; one of the best pitching prospects that nobody has heard of.
  • Tim Wheeler, OF, Rockies (Rafters); 2-for-6, HR (1), R, RBI. Trying to prove that the 2011 breakout was for real; late-season struggles created some questions.
