Notes on Bo Bichette, Shawn Morimando, Rafael Devers, Stephen Gonsalves, Sandy Alcantara, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Bo Bichette, SS, Toronto Blue Jays (Low-A Lansing): 7-8, BB, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 5 RBI, K, SB
Well, that’s one way to navigate a doubleheader. Bichette has been laying waste to Midwest League pitching this season, with yesterday’s outburst lifting him to .400 for the season. The approach stands out, and the bat speed ain’t bad either. With High-A looming, Bichette has a chance to evolve into one of the premier offensive prospects in the minors by years end if he can continue his assault at the next level.

Notes on Mickey Moniak, A.J. Puk, Zach Granite, Kyle Funkhouser, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Grayson Greiner, C, Detroit Tigers (Double-A, Erie): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI
Drafted in the 3rd round in 2014 from the University of South Carolina-Columbia. Grayson is a unicorn as he is a 6’6” catcher who can stick behind the plate. A broken hamate bone in 2015 set his development back as he is still looking to regain some power that he has in his body.

Notes on Zack Collins, Luis Castillo, Jahmai Jones, Jose Miguel Fernandez, Jorge Alfaro, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Zack Collins, C, Chicago White Sox (High-A, Winston-Salem): 2-3, R, 2B, HR, RBI, BB, K
Drafted in the first round in 2016 from the University of Miami (FL). Collins has hit a roadblock in High-A, working deep counts, but striking out a lot, making a detriment of his patience at times. He still has an OBP of over .380, and is slugging over .440. Reports on his catching seem mixed as he can struggle with receiving and lacks overall athleticism behind the plate.

Notes on Michael Chavis, Corbin Burnes, Colton Welker, Hudson Potts, Cal Quantrill, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Michael Chavis, 3B, Boston Red Sox (High-A, Salem): 3-3, 3 R, 3 H, HR, RBI
Drafted in the 1st round, in the 2014 MLB Draft from Sprayberry HS in Marietta GA, Chavis big raw power has showcased itself into more game power than ever before. He has already surpassed his prior career high (16) and while the K’s are high, if he is slugging .694, I think we can overlook it.

Notes on Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Eloy Jimenez, Francisco Mejia, Triston McKenzie, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Francisco Mejia, C, Cleveland Indians (Double-A Akron): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K
I don’t have much to note here beyond what Steve said yesterday, after the last time Mejia homered twice.

Frankie Mejia, Brent Honeywell, Dakota Hudson and more on today's MLU.

Hitter of the Day:

Francisco Mejia, C, Cleveland Indians (Double-A, Akron): 4-5, 3 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, BB (DH)
As we have talked about many, many times here, it is hard evaluating catchers. Success can exist in two spectrums. You could be the all-star caliber defender and just hope to hit enough (ex. Reese McGuire), or you could be the all-star caliber hitter and just hope to be a capable enough defender (ex. Jorge Alfaro). Mejia has a chance to be both, which is frightening.

Minor League Update: Games of June 2nd-4th

Mark Anderson

Eloy Jimenez, Rafael Devers, Bo Bichette, and a guy named Telmito.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Michael Gettys, OF, Padres (High-A, Lake Elsinore): 9-12, 4 R, 2B, 4 HR, 6 RBI, BB, 2 K.
Gettys is still a legitimate defensive contributor in center field thanks to plus speed, good instincts, and a huge arm, but his bat continues to hold him back from true top prospect status. Even on the heels of a monster weekend, including three home runs on Friday, Gettys has still taken a step back in a return trip to High-A this season. There’s solid power here, but he’s also fanned 81 times in just 54 games, without the walks to make that tolerable at higher levels. Gettys still has considerable development remaining and I’m afraid he’s always going to end up relying on his glove to carry the load while his bat comes and goes.
