Notes on Brendan McKay, Michael Kopech, Tyler O’Neill, Walker Buehler, A.J. Reed, Ryan Mountcastle, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Oneil Cruz, SS/3B, Los Angeles Dodgers (Low-A Great Lakes): 5-5, 3 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI
Well, then. Cruz has undergone plenty of literal and figurative growing pains this year as he’s continued along on his journey to figure out how to consistently corral his 6-foot-6 frame. But games like yesterday’s offer a glimpse into the kind of impact talent that’s in there.

Notes on Mike Soroka, Mauricio Dubon, Willy Adames, Tyler Beede, Ronnie Dawson, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Ronnie Dawson, OF, Houston Astros (Low-A, Quad Cities): 3-4, 3 R, 3B, 2 HR, 5 RBI
With the build of an NFL linebacker, Dawson also has the power one would think an NFL linebacker would have if he played baseball. Dawson’s power is plus to better and is his primary carrying tool. He is an average runner, which is surprising given his size, but struggles defensively, and his swing has lots of holes to exploit.

Notes on Tyler O’Neill, Keegan Akin, Miguel Andujar, Ryan Boldt, Chance Sisco, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Tyler O'Neill, OF, Seattle Mariners (Triple-A, Tacoma): 4-8, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 K (DH)
One of the few remaining Mariners prospects left, O’Neill has gone somewhat backwards since a strong Double-A performance in 2016. While he might never hit like that again, O’Neill does do a lot of good things! He hits big home runs, will play an average right field, and has a plus arm.

Notes on Jason Martin, Nick Fanti, Harrison Bader, C.J. Chatham, Lucas Sims, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Jason Martin, OF, Houston Astros (Double-A, Corpus Christi): 4-4, R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI
A fringe-average player all around, Martin has struggled this season, comparatively to what he did last year. He has been passed over in the organization by other OF’s, but can still fill out a role as an outfielder who can play CF and steal some bags.

Huge introductions to Triple-A continue with Rafael Devers and Ronald Acuna.

Notes on Ronald Acuna, Chris Flexen, Touki Toussaint, Wander Javier, Ryan Mountcastle, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Ronald Acuna, OF, Atlanta Braves (Triple-A Gwinnett): 3-5, BB, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI, K
Fresh off the bus from Mississippi, 19-year-old Acuna went oppo tank in his first Triple-A at-bat en route to reaching base four times in his Triple-A debut. Numbers are in no ways all, of course, but Acuna, who by the way is 19, has now posted a composite .317/.366/.516 line across three levels this year. Incredibly, he is just 19 years old.

Tatito, Neidert, Thaiss, Bichette, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Fernando Tatis Jr., 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A, Fort Wayne): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI
Until he hits 3 grand slams in one inning, I will always think of the father before I think of the son. Tatis’ plus raw power has been playing more and more, and pair that with his plus speed and average defensive skills and this could be an everyday regular.

Acuna Moncada?

Hitter of the Day:

Kevin Cornelius, 1B/3B, Chicago Cubs (Double-A, Tennessee): 4-5, 3 R, 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, K
Cornelius isn’t a prospect, but he had a good day, it was also a light day for the minor leagues. He was selected in the rule 5 minor league portion of the draft this past season. You know who else was taken as a Rule 5 minor leaguers? Justin Bour.

Strong performances from Anderson Franco, Justin Dunn, Zack Collins and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Anderson Franco, 3B, Washington Nationals (Low-A, Hagerstown): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, K
While big and strong, Franco has missed lots of time to injuries (such as a back injury that limited him to 24 games last year) but still showcases potential. Still 19 years of age, Franco has a lean 6-foot-3, 190-pound body that can add to his already above-average raw power. But he still struggles with recognizing off-speed and has an overall aggressive approach.

Notes on Amed Rosario, Adonis Medina, Renato Nunez, Lucas Sims, Wander Javier, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Amed Rosario, SS, New York Mets (Triple-A Las Vegas): 4-5, 2 R, 2 SB
Amed must’ve heard Sandy Alderson talking about how he wasn’t quite ready yet at our Citi Field event, because after scuffling through most of June he’s really started to tear cover from ball this month to the tune of 10 hits in his last 21 at-bats. Soon come.

Notes on Brendan Rodgers, Marco Gonzales, Zach Plesac, Brett Phillips, Starling Heredia, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

DJ Peters, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers (High-A, Rancho Cucamonga): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K
Spoiler alert for our Weekly Wrap readers, OF Austin Wilson, the love-child of one Wilson Karaman, was released. But he has been replaced by a man of equal size, power, and a better hit tool.
