Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Yoan Moncada, Charlie Tilson, Tyler Glasnow, and Christin Stewart.

Prospect of the Day: Yoan Moncada, 2B, Boston Red Sox (Double-A Portland): 3-for-5, 2 R.
As a guy who likes to see prospects challenged, was it frustrating to see Moncada in the Carolina League for 60 days? You betcha. Do the Red Sox give even a smidgen of a hoot about my concerns? They do not. Moncada has been sensational in 2016, and if for some reason you didn’t think 2015 established him as one of the best prospects in baseball, this should do it. I doubt you see him contribute in 2016 unless there’s an injury to a certain scrappy second baseman in Boston, but I don’t doubt that he’s ready to make said contribution.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Scott Schebler, Stephen Tarpley, Cody Bellinger, and Joe Jimenez.

Prospect of the Day: Scott Schebler, OF, Cincinnati Reds (Triple-A Louisville): 4-for-4, 2 R, 3 2B. Schebler struggled in his month with the Reds, but he’s probably earned a chance at another promotion. He’s been much better since his Triple-A return, and while that should be the case, it’s still a promising development. There’s a chance for solid-average power from the left side, and the feel for hitting is good enough that the hit tool may be average, too. It’s probably a bench profile, but it’s something every club needs. Schebler absolutely has a chance to be a contributor to a good team in the coming years.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Ian Happ, Phil Bickford, Reynaldo Lopez, and Austin Meadows.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Ian Happ, 2B/OF, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 4-for-6, R, 3 2B, BB, CS.
When you consider that Happ was the ninth pick of last year’s draft and that he has a .410 OBP, for a system that is as prospect-crazy as any, he’s gone, dare I say, under the radar? There’s a chance every tool in his bag becomes above average, and I give him as good of chance for a plus hit tool as anyone from last year’s class—and yes, that includes the big three. Is he a future star? No. Is he a future regular? I’d bet at least some of my “reputation” on it.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Sean Reid-Foley, Sandy Alcantara, Austin Meadows, and Joe McCarthy.

Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, Blue Jays (High-A Dunedin): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 3 BB, 12 K.
Word of Reid-Foley’s promotion trickled out during the day on Thursday, along with word that he was starting for Dunedin last night. That first start in High-A didn’t prove to have much of an adjustment, as Reid-Foley torched the opposition, allowing just two hits and striking out 12 while demonstrating just how electric his stuff can be when he’s on top of his game.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Rhys Hoskins, Osvaldo Abreu, Jharel Cotton, and Marcos Diplan.

Prospect of the Day:

Rhys Hoskins, 1B, Philadelphia Phillies (Double-A Reading): 3-4, BB, R, 2 2B, HR, 6 RBI, K.
Six RBI, whatever. But Hoskins is on some kind of a streak right now. Over his last 11 he’s hitting .447 with eight dingers powering a 1.064 slugging percentage. The power comes with some aggressiveness and swing-and-miss, but it’s looked awfully legit in the Eastern League.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Blake Snell, Lucas Giolito, Chance Adams, Johan Mieses, and Dylan Cozens.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Blake Snell, LHP, Tampa Bay Rays (Triple-A Durham): 5.2 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 13 K
Was this Snell’s final start as a Durham Bull? It might be if he pitches well in his start on Thursday for the Rays. That statline is misleading, as I received several reports that his defense didn’t help at all, and as you can see from the strikeouts, he was missing plenty of bats in his 5 2/3 innings. He’s one of the best left-handed pitching prospects in baseball, and he’s ready to contribute at the big-league level.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Rafael Devers, Francis Martes, Carson Fulmer, and Dylan Davis.

Prospect of the Day:

Rafael Devers, 3B, Boston Red Sox (High-A Salem): 5-5, BB, R, 2 RBI.
Theeeeere it is. Devers is the youngest player in the Carolina League and has struggled mightily in the season’s early going because baseball is hard. But he’s picked it up of late, with hits in 10 of his last 11, and yesterday’s five-hit effort gives him some kind of something to hang his hat on going forward.
