Notes on Ryan Mountcastle, John Simms, Grant Holmes, Dane Dunning, Wander Javier, Jorge Mateo, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Ryan Mountcastle, SS??, Baltimore Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI
Mountcastle, who will head to the Arizona Fall League, leaves little doubt about his offensive ability. He looks like a plus hitter who can run, and produce a lot of power. But his defensive home has always been in question. He has been playing 3B and SS since reaching Double-A, with both positions grading out poorly.

Hitter of the Day:

Kyle Tucker, OF, Houston Astros (Double-A, Corpus Christi): 3-7, R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB (DH)
Tucker is really good. The city of Houston also needs your help after the events of Hurricane Harvey. Please donate if you can www.redcross.org

Notes on Jake Burger, A.J. Alexy, Max Fried, Dylan Cozens, Logan Shore, Monte Harrison, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Jake Burger, 3B, Chicago White Sox (Low-A Kannapolis): 5-5, BB, R, 2B, 3B, HR, 3 RBI
That he only scored one run despite reaching base safely in six plate appearances defies a few laws of physics, but it’s neither here nor there. What is here, or at least has returned after a modest slump, is Burger’s notable game power, which should mature comfortably into above-average range at least in the bigs one day. My colleague Greg Goldstein described him in our Slack as having “a big body with a compact power stroke,” and I’m like…yep.

Notes on Nick Senzel, Jorge Ona, Josh Staumont, Wander Javier, Brendon Little, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Jorge Ona, OF, San Diego Padres (Low-A, Fort Wayne): 3-7, 3 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI
Only the 2nd biggest signing of the Padres IFA signings from 2016, Ona still commanded a $7 signing. The calling card here is massive raw power, he has plus power to all fields, and could be an average hitter. His lack of defensive skills leave his overall profile more as a bench player.

Notes on Teoscar Hernandez, Antonio Santillan, Jake Burger, Jake Bauers, Freddy Tarnok, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Teoscar Hernandez, OF, Toronto Blue Jays (Triple-A, Buffalo): 4-5, 3 R, 3B, 2 HR, 3 RBI
The Astros were full of quality OF prospects, making him expendable when he was shipped to Toronto for Francisco Liriano.

Notes on Daulton Varsho, Corbin Burnes, Royce Lewis, Michael Chavis, Anthony Banda, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Daulton Varsho, C, Arizona Diamondbacks (Short-Season, Hillsboro): 3-5, 2B, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K
While you were all watching the eclipse early, Varsho was hitting bombs into the eclipsed sky. Taken in the Competitive Balance (B) Round, Varsho is an odd duck. While he catches, he has well-below average arm strength, but is regarded as a well above average defender, and is a plus runner to boot. At the plate he has a short lefty stroke and is built strongly, giving him plus raw power.

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.
