Willy Adames headlines this weekend's playoff action.

Prospect(s) of the Weekend:

Matt Pearce, RHP, Cardinals (Triple-A, Memphis): 6 IP, 5 H, R/ER, 2 BB, 8 K.
Pearce was a 13th-round pick of the Cardinals that gets by on competitiveness and savvy on the mound as opposed to knockout stuff. His fastball sits 86-90 mph but he employs an above-average changeup that he will throw in any count to keep hitters off balance. Despite good size and some reasonable success throughout his minor league career, Pearce doesn’t project to be much more than a solid org arm that eats Double-A and Triple-A innings.

Notes on Brent Honeywell, Mitch Keller, Rylan Bannon, Willy Adames, Kevin Herget, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Rylan Bannon, 3B, Los Angeles Dodgers (Rookie, Ogden): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, K
An eighth-rounder from this year’s draft out of Xavier University, Bannon gets high marks for his defensive skills at third base, projecting to plus. While Ogden, and his college home park before it, can exaggerate power, Bannon still has average raw power and doesn’t miss when one is given to him.

Willy Adames, Yusniel Diaz, Brendan McKay, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Alex Call, CF, Chicago White Sox (Low-A Kannapolis): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, 3B, RBI.
Last year’s third-rounder for the Pale Hose has scuffled at times during his first full pro season, raising questions about whether his less-than-fluid stroke will play against more advanced pitching. He’s got a nice batch of tools out of the box and on the grass, though, with plenty of arm to handle all three outfield spots. If the stick takes a step forward next year it’d go a long way towards solidifying a fourth-outfielder trajectory.

Notes on Hudson Potts, Michel Baez, Nate Pearson, Jesus Luzardo, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Hudson Potts, 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 2-4, R, 2B, HR, RBI, 2 K
We’re getting down to the dregs here in terms of still-happening playoff series providing options here, but Potts had himself yet another nice night at the dish. Heck, we might as well rename this site Hudson Potts Prospectus, what with all the hot Potts #content we’ve been churning out lately. You want some notes from the field? Boom. Or maybe you’re a longer-form fella or gal? Boom. There’s a bunch of youthful impatience underlying his present approach, but he just hit his 20th dinger as an 18-year-old in full-season ball, so perhaps some patience is warranted here.

Notes on Mitch Keller, Kyle Lewis, Thairo Estrada, Yonny Chirinos, Pavin Smith, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Thairo Estrada, MI, New York Yankees (Double-A Trenton): 4-5, 2 R, 2B, 3B, HR, 3 RBI
Estrada dropped the third cycle in Trenton history on Binghamton to tie their playoff series at one. He’s got some fans here on the Prospect Team as an underrated utility player with excellent defensive actions and solid bat-to-ball skills.

Notes on Royce Lewis, Hudson Potts, Shane Bieber, Gavin Lux, Stephen Gonsalves, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Hudson Potts, 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A, Fort Wayne): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 7 RBI
Some were surprised to see Potts go in the first round in 2016, but the Padres liked his youth, as well as his overall power potential. Potts, who has been playing in Low-A as an 18 year old, now has 17 homers on the year. While he can struggle with his hands from time to time, this kind of profile needs time to age and develop.
