Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Rays third baseman Tyler Goeddel and Twins lefty Stephen Gonsalves.

Hitter of the Day: Tyler Goeddel, 3B, Rays (Montgomery, AA): 3-4, 3 R, 3 HR.
Goeddel has always looked the part, which is why he was a first-round pick for the Rays in 2011, but his in-game production has never matched his appearance. He’ll need more power production like he showed on Thursday to make up for a below-average approach, some holes in his hit tool, and below-average defense at third base.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Royals third baseman Hunter Dozier and Yankees righty Luis Severino.

Hitter of the Day: Hunter Dozier, 3B, Royals (NW Arkansas, AA): 4-5, 3 R, 2 2B, HR.
Dozier has really struggled this season, his second time stumbling in Double-A after having issues there last year following a mid-season promotion. He impressed last season in A-ball, flashing a number of plus tools including power, but while getting out of Wilmington has helped that power some, his free-swinging approach at the plate has limited it greatly.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Royals outfielder Bubba Starling and Reds righty Robert Stephenson.

Hitter of the Day: Bubba Starling, OF, Royals (NW Arkansas, AA): 4-5, 3 R, 2B, 3B, HR, SB.
Four years later, here we are with Starling. Soon to be 23, he’s in Double-A and having some moderate success, though still short of what the Royals once envisioned. The strikeouts are down somewhat, though only relative to their previously obscene levels. Getting him out of Wilmington really hasn’t helped his power production, however, at least not the way many believed it might, Tuesday night notwithstanding. He’s still got the tools, and his defense in center field combined with his name recognition and draft pedigree could get him to the big leagues, but there’s still little reason to believe he’ll ever hit consistently.

Notes on Ketel Marte, Chris Shaw, an an under-the-radar guy you probably ha

Quick Hits: Miguel Andujar (Yankees) is a better athlete than you’d expect by just looking at the body type, busting a 4.17 time down the line despite being on the right side and having a long finish (JM)…Kyle Finnegan (Athletics) generates one of the longest strides you’ll see and gets excellent extension, but his sinker didn’t sink much on Sunday and he was up in the zone en route to getting whacked around by Lancaster (WK)... Carlos Belen (Padres) is one of the youngest players in the NWL and he has some thump in his bat but he swings at everything and his lower half is out of sync with his hands. He’ll be back in the league next year (BG)…Dante Bichette, Jr. has a lot of flaws and few tools, but he does have plus raw power, a swing that’s not afraid to unleash it, and the ability to hit lefties, meaning he’s going to keep getting chances (JM)… Jose Castillo (Padres) is a 19-year-old lefty having a lot of success, but he’s 86-89 with the fastball and surviving on guile (BG)… Melvin Mercedes (Athletics) showed above-average foot speed and a lightning quick transfer filling in for injured Stockton SS Franklin Barreto (WK)... I saw Tyler White (Astros) twice and he crushed everything on the inner half. He has good plate discipline, knows what he can drive, and has an intelligent plan at the plate. If he can cover the outer half of the plate, he’ll be a DH someday (BG).

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including A's first baseman Matt Olson and Braves righty Tyrell Jenkins.

Hitter of the Day: Matt Olson, 1B, Athletics (Midland, AA): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, BB.
I touched yesterday on the importance of Olson’s power and its absence this season up until the past few days. Following up a few home runs this week with a multi-homer game is an extremely positive sign (could it be anything else?) for a player in desperate need of one. The raw power has never really been questioned, though its utility at the upper levels has been in doubt thanks to average bat speed and holes in Olson’s long swing. The adjustment from Stockton to Midland has taken players more talented than Olson longer than four months to make, but Olson could be turning a corner just in time to salvage his season.
