Minor League Update

Games of Monday, August 26

by Zach Mortimer


The Update for last night will be a bit different than the typical article. I attended the Binghamton at Bowie game (Double-A Eastern League), and I heard of an excellent story. I felt like it was necessary to dedicate the article to those very specific points.

"The Good"

Eduardo Rodriguez, LHP, Orioles (Double-A Bowie): 8.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
Rodriguez boasts plus command of a fastball that works 91-94 and can sprinkle in some 95s. The changeup works 82-84 with some armside fade. The change has proven to be the more consistent of his two secondary offerings. The slider sits 81-84 with some tilt, but he loses feel and will throw it too firmly or not firmly enough at times. The secondary offerings are going to be okay, but not great. Overall, Rodriguez profiles as a back-of-the-rotation starter and will be in the conversation for the top 100 prospects.

"The Bad"

Noah Syndergaard, RHP, Mets (Double-A Binghamton): 3.0 IP, 9 H, 9 ER, 3
