Minor League Update

Games of July 3-6

by Jeff Moore


Thursday, July 3

Jose Peraza, 2B, Braves (Mississippi, AA): 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, K. SB. There’s virtually no power in Peraza’s game, but if he’s going to hit over .350, it won’t matter. He won’t, of course, do that at higher levels, but he has handled his promotion to Double-A with aplomb.

Adam Conley, LHP, Marlins (New Orleans, AAA): 5 2/3 IP, 2 H, R, 6 BB, 2 K. Conley has maintained strikeout rates relative to his career norms since a promotion to Triple-A, but his already fringy walk rate has spiked up past levels where it needs to be to get hitters out consistently.

Nick Williams, OF, Rangers (Myrtle Beach, A+): 2-3, 2 R, HR, BB. The guys who can get away with BB:K ratios as extreme as Williams’ are rare, but he may just have the hit tool to pull it off. If he doesn’t become more patient, he’ll need to hit every bit of .300 to be a productive offensive player, but that’s well within reach for Williams.

Friday, July 4

Adrian Houser, RHP, Astros (Quad Cities, A-): 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 8 K. Houser has spouted potential for a few years now without a ton to show for it, but the tall right-hander is in full-season ball now, and, while he’s not blowing anyone away, he is holding his own.
