Steve Givarz

Notes on Cionel Perez, Miguel Andujar, Brett Cumberland, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Jose Marmolejos-Diaz, 1B, Washington Nationals (Double-A, Harrisburg): 5-6, 3 R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI
The Nationals Minor League Player of the year for both the 2015, and 2016 seasons, Jose is a natural hitter with a smooth left-handed stroke. While the power might not play to what you would expect it at 1B, his ability to hit and get on-base will surely find a way to the big leagues.

Notes on Victor Robles, Michael Kopech, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Francisco Mejia, Kyle Funkhouser, and more.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Victor Robles, OF, Washington Nationals (High-A, Potomac): 8-16, 2 R, 2 3B, HR, 5 RBI, K
My boy! Two years ago I nearly gave Craig Goldstein a heart attack when he looked at my scouting report on Robles; tossing around a 7 hit, 4 power, 7 run, 6 glove, 7 arm profile like it was nothing. I wouldn’t back off that report one bit today. In fact, the only thing I would question was whether or not I will ultimately appear light on the power. Robles is a star in the making and I’m optimistic I’ll get a chance to see him in Double-A before the year is done.

Notes on Jahmai Jones, Sam Travis, Josh Staumont, Cody Reed, Austin Hays, Rhys Hoskins, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Sam Travis, 1B, Boston Red Sox (Triple-A, Pawtucket): 5-6, R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, K
An unfortunate ACL injury last May ended his season when Travis looked to be knocking on the door for some big-league time. Back healthy, Travis had a slow April but has turned it on in May. While the power might not play as a plus offering, it should still result in 10-15 home runs with lots of doubles in Fenway.

Notes on Tyler Beede, Walker Buehler, Max Moroff, Zac Gallen, Dylan Cozens, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Max Moroff, 2B, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A, Indianapolis): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K
There were a lot of two-homer performances Wednesday, but Moroff is tied for the minor-league lead now with Chris DeVito (more on him below) with 12. While power hasn’t typically been a big part of his game (his prior career-high was eight) it is showing up in spades more than ever.

Notes on Ozhaino Albies, Luis Ortiz, Rafael Devers, Nick Senzel, Nick Gordon, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Ozhaino Albies, SS, Atlanta Braves (Triple-A, Gwinnett): 3-3, 3 R, HR, RBI, 2 BB, SB
I know you guys were freaking out a little about Albies to start this season. While he did not get off to a great start, calm your horses. He will play the entire season at Triple-A as a 20-year-old, 6.7 years younger than the average player in the International League. Could he be in the big leagues this season? Sure. But let’s not rush this.

Notes on Eloy Jimenez, Mitchell White, Amed Rosario, Ronald Acuna, Kyle Funkhouser, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Eloy Jimenez, RF, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 2-4, R, HR, RBI
He’s baaaaaaaack. After losing out on the season’s first six weeks on account of a bum shoulder, the Cubs’ top prospect hasn’t missed a beat in going five for his first 11 with yesterday’s inaugural dinger. And it was a dinger, alright. This ball was, um, hit.

Notes on Brendan Rodgers, Ronald Acuna, Bo Bichette, Sandy Alcantara, Ronald Guzman, and more.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Brendan Rodgers, SS, Colorado Rockies (High-A, Lancaster): 8-13, 5 R, 3 2B, 3B, HR, 4 RBI, K, SB
Well, I think it’s safe to say Brendan Austin Rodgers has shaken off the rust after starting the year on the disabled list. Anybody that follows prospects understands how exceptionally talented Rodgers is offensively, and by this time next month it will just be a matter of whether or not the Rockies think the rest of his game is ready for a promotion to Double-A Hartford. If I were a betting man, I would wager heavily that he’s playing in Connecticut by the end of June.

Notes on Willy Adames, Brent Honeywell, Erick Fedde, Mike Gerber, Jesus Tinoco, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Mike Gerber, RF, Detroit Tigers (Double-A Erie): 4-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI
Gerber’s been prone to this kind of outburst this season, and it jives with his boom-bust offensive approach. He whiffs a too much for a kid with fringy game power, but he also does a lot of things decently enough that the sum of the parts adds up to a probable big-league asset.

A Cristian Pache sighting, Jacob Faria continues his dominant ways, and another big outing from Zac Gallen.

Hitter of the Day:

Carlos Castro, 1B, Atlanta Braves (High-A, Florida): 5-5, 3 R, 3 HR, 8 RBI
From what I could gather from Javier Barragan, Castro has plus raw power and some usable bat speed, but is a poor fielder who is out from behind the plate. Primarily a power first 1B/DH, Org depth. While he might not be much of a prospect, good job yesterday Carlos.

Sam Hilliard doesn't always make contact, but when he does...and a Triston McKenzie sighting. He didn't turn sideways.

Hitter of the Day:

Sam Hilliard, OF, Colorado Rockies (High-A, Lancaster): 3-6, 2 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI
Hilliard is a toolshed, as he features plus run, a plus to better arm, plus to better raw power, and above-average defensive skills. But, just like with other players with this skillset it always comes down to how well they hit. Hilliard has been doing a good job of hitting thus far.

The Rangers keep unearthing projectable arms, and Alex Jackson continues his assault on the FSL.

Hitter of the Day:

Victor Caratini, C/1B, Chicago Cubs (Triple-A, Iowa): 4-5, R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, K
Can Caratini catch? Eh…let’s talk about how well he hits! A switch-hitter, Caratini has bat speed from both sides with some pop. He uses the whole field, which helps him avoid the shift and can work counts. What position does he play? Maybe C? Maybe go back to 3B?
