Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including (the other) Cody Reed, (the Reds) Cody Reed, Matt Chapman, Joe Gatto, and Tyler O'Neill.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Cody Reed, LHP, Arizona Diamondbacks (Low-A Kane County): 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 11 K.
In Reed’s first two starts this year, he’s struck out 22 hitters, walked zero, and given up one more earned run than you and I have this season. The D’backs 2014 second-round pick is massive, and he uses that size and impressive arm strength to showcase a plus-plus fastball. Both of the secondary pitches lack consistency, but this is a very talented southpaw who could pitch in the middle of a rotation in the next 2-3 years.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Harrison Bader

Harrison Bader, OF, St. Louis Cardinals (Double-A Springfield): 4-for-5, 2 R, 2B, HR.
Bader was the Cardinals third-round selection last year, and many feel he fell to that round because there was no standout tool. The issue with this, for me, is that when you have five average ones, that can be the standout tool, especially when you can play center field. Be it as a fourth outfielder or as a starter in a premium position, Bader is going to bring value. If it’s the latter, he’ll be regarded as a draft steal.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Tyler Glasnow, Braden Shipley, Drew Ward, and Daniel Palka.

Prospect of the Day:

Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 6 IP, 2 H, BB, 11 K.
Glasnow has left little doubt about his readiness to jump into a big-league rotation through four International League outings this April. He reportedly worked in some 91-mph changeups, and has now limited his walk total to just seven through 21 innings. All systems certainly appear go here.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Junior Fernandez, Josh Bell, Dinelson Lamet, Tyler Krieger, and Jaime Schultz.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Junior Fernandez, RHP, St. Louis Cardinals (Low-A Peoria): 8 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 10 K.
Signed for $400,000 after taking the Alex Reyes/Lucius Fox route (prep then international), Fernandez’s talent is up there with anyone’s. The fastball is double-plus and has been clocked up to 99 mph, and he throws a change that will make any hitter who sits on the heater look silly. The breaking ball appears to be coming along, and even with a delivery that has some effort, he absolutely has a chance to stay in a rotation.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Trea Turner, Orlando Arcia, David Dahl, Adalberto Mejia, and Jordan Stephens.

Prospect of the Day:

Trea Turner, SS, Washington Nationals (Triple-A Syracuse): 5-for-8, 2 R, 2 SB, 1 K.
Turner now has 20 hits in his dozen games, and he’s not just dinking and dunking; he’s hitting the ball with authority to all parts of the field. With a plus hit tool, double-plus speed, and competent defense at shortstop, it shouldn’t be long until we see him hitting at or near the top of the Nationals lineup. He should have been to begin the year, however, so it remains to be seen when he’ll get that chance. Enjoy him while you can, Syracuse.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Ian Happ, Anderson Espinoza, Ke'Bryan Hayes, Tyler Mahle, and Kyle McGowin.

Prospect of the Day:

Ian Happ, 2B, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 4-5, 2 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, SB, K.
Oh nothing, Happ just added over 300 points to his OPS in one night, no big deal. The long balls were the first two of the season, and he did all of his damage hitting left-handed. The right-handed stroke hasn’t come around yet (one for 13, five strikeouts), but we hung dual 6s on his hit tool for a reason. The base-running instincts have shown well thus far in three successful stolen base efforts as well.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Tyler Glasnow, Trea Turner, Alex Meyer, Max Povse, Sean Manaea, and Mike Papi.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 5 IP, 4 H, 0 BB, 9 K.
After a shaky spring training, Glasnow has given up just two earned runs in his first 10 innings while striking out 15 and—most importantly—walking just three. No, the command will never be elite, but it doesn’t have to be; when you’re pumping plus-plus fastballs at a downhill plane and a wipeout curveball, it only has to be average. His upside rivals that of any pitcher in baseball not named Lucas Giolito, and he’s going to miss a lot of bats at the big-league level. Soon.
