Wilson Karaman

Notes on Franklin Barreto, Forrest Whitley, Ronald Acuna, Mitch Keller, Kyle Wright, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Franklin Barreto, MI, Oakland Athletics (Triple-A Nashville): 4-5, 3 R, 3B, HR, 4 RBI, K
After a few inconsistent months in the middle of the season, Barreto has finally settled into a decent groove over the past few weeks. Amid the struggles at both Triple A and in his brief big-league introduction it’s worth a friendly reminder that he is still 21 years old, and enthusiasm for his long-term offensive projection should in no way have dampened this summer.

Notes on Alec Hansen, Joey Wentz, Gavin Lux, Yordan Alvarez, Patrick Mazeika, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Patrick Mazeika, C/1B, New York Mets (Double-A, Binghamton): 3-6, 2 R, 3 2B, 3 RBI, K
Mazeika has shown an ability to hit, it could be a plus tool for him. But the rest of the profile is tough; he has a below-average arm and doesn’t catch well, limiting him behind the plate. He doesn’t have a lot of over-the-fence power either, which makes first base a tougher profile than catcher. Hitters find a way, though.

Notes on Stephen Gonsalves, Dakota Hudson, Brock Stewart, Eric Skoglund, Brian Miller, Brock Burke, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Brian Miller, OF, Miami Marlins (Low-A, Greensboro): 4-4, 3 R, 4 2B, 4 RBI, BB
Chosen 36th overall in the 2017 draft, Miller looks like an everyday player in center field, which would be big for the team. While the only tool that stands out is plus speed, he has a knack for making contact, getting balls in the outfield, and getting on base.

Notes on Nick Gordon, Kyle Cody, Triston McKenzie, Alex Lange, Harrison Bader, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Nick Gordon, SS, Minnesota Twins (Double-A, Chattanooga): 5-6, 3 R, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, K
While some evaluators could make a case for Royce Lewis ahead of Gordon for top Twins prospect, I wouldn’t go there quite yet. The interesting thing is that Gordon has added more power this year, while drawing more walks, and becoming a more efficient base stealer. While he is moonlighting every now and then at 2B, he still looks like an everyday SS defensively.

Notes on Royce Lewis, Nick Senzel, Nick Kingham, Rowdy Tellez, Kolby Allard, Yordan Alvarez, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Nick Senzel, 3B, Cincinnati Reds (Double-A Pensacola): 3-4, BB, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, SB, K
Senzel has done pretty much exactly what scouts predicted he’d do at every stage of his development thus far. He’s a really good hitter, and the pop has really started to translate from the doubles kind to the over-the-fence kind since he elevated beyond the Florida State League.

Notes on Austin Hays, Corbin Martin, Rookie Davis, Daniel Tillo, Dylan Cozens, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Austin Hays, OF, Baltimore Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 2-5, 2 R, 3B, HR, 5 RBI
Hays can show you all five tools. While his best tool is a plus arm, his raw power could make a case for that distinction. He’s now slugging over .600 for the season and is forcing us to make a tough decision on if him or Chance Sisco will be the top Orioles prospect next season.

Notes on Brent Honeywell, Eloy Jimenez, Daz Cameron, Isaac Paredes, Seth Romero, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Isaac Paredes, SS, Detroit Tigers (Low-A, West Michigan): 4-6, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI
Just acquired from the Cubs in the Justin Wilson trade, Paredes seems to be adjusting quickly. While on the smaller side, Paredes does have good raw power, which has been playing this year with a lot of extra base hits. While he might not be a SS long term, he profiles at either 2B or 3B.

Notes on MacKenzie Gore, Fernando Tatis Jr., Pedro Gonzalez, Michel Baez, Chance Sisco, Francisco Mejia, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Pedro Gonzalez, OF, Colorado Rockies (Rookie, Grand Juncton): 3-4, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB
Signed for $1.3M in 2014 out of the Dominican, Gonzalez is one of the most polarizing players in the system. While he has an extremely high ceiling, he offers plus speed, arm strength, and raw power, he has been prone to chase in Rookie ball. While still young (will be 20 in November), and with a long way to go, I wouldn’t exactly be rushing to pick him up in your fantasy leagues.

Ronald Acuna continues his assault on Triple-A, Austin Meadows is back on the field, and more.

Prospect of the Weekend:
D.J. Stewart
, OF, Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 6-17, 3 R, 2B, 3 HR, 14 RBI, K.

Stewart has turned it on of late, including a big weekend that offered a home run each day, and plenty of runs driven in. Blessed with average hitting ability and the potential for average game power at the big-league level, Stewart could develop the offensive game to support his defensive profile, which is limited to left field.

Notes on Brent Honeywell, Cody Thomas, A.J. Puk, Michael Chavis, Michael Chavis, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Cody Thomas, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers (Low-A Great Lakes): 3-5, 3 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI, K
Thomas played very little actual baseball as an amateur, with the lion’s share of his athletic attention spent on backup quarterbacking the Oklahoma Sooners. He turned heads in his Pioneer League debut last year, though, with raw tools and athleticism aplenty. The realities of professional baseball have beset upon him a bit this year in full-season, but yesterday’s outburst wasn’t particularly out of line for a plus-powered masher. It’s a long term project, but you know what they say…never bet against an elite athlete.

Notes on Travis Demeritte, Garrett Williams, Jason Groome, Kevin Merrell, Mitchell White, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Travis Demeritte, 2B, Atlanta Braves (Double-A, Mississippi): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB
While it seems like Demeritte is blocked for the forseeable future because of Albies and Swanson; you never know what can happen, but they will find a way. Demeritte’s plus power will find a place in the big leagues, whether it is at 2B or even 3B.
