Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Tim Anderson, Josh Naylor, Sandy Alcantara, and Nick Travieso.

Prospect of the Day:

Tim Anderson, SS, Chicago White Sox (Triple-A Charlotte): 3-5, R, K, SB.
After a slow start to the season Anderson has been en fuego of late, yesterday logging his seventh multi-hit game in his last 10. The strikeout-to-walk ratio remains egregious, but he’s making pitchers four years older than him pay for coming into the zone right now. With Jimmy Rollins continuing to scuffle on the South Side we’re kind of starting to get into that range where maybe, just maybe, the kid earns himself a shot in spite of the still-rough edges to his game.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Jameson Taillon, Tim Anderson, Sam Howard, Andrew Thurman, and Sam Travis.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Jameson Taillon, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A Indianapolis): 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 11 K.
The report I received on Taillon was that he actually struggled to locate all of his secondary pitches over the first couple of innings, but boy did that change in a hurry. He’s missing bats with his entire arsenal, and he’s been so efficient that he’s been able to get deep into games. I imagine the Pirates will turn to Tyler Glasnow first—and they should—but Taillon is ready to go, and after what he went through last year, that’s awesome to say.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Tim Locastro, Harrison Bader, Chris Ellis, and Phillip Ervin.

Prospect of the Day:

Tim Locastro, 2B, Los Angeles Dodgers (High-A Rancho Cucamonga): 4-5, 4 R, 2B, 3B, HR, 2 RBI.
That’s a proper cycle, for those of you scoring at home – the first one I’ve seen live in about three years. Bought Acquired from the Blue Jays last July, Locastro just hits. He gets early, subtle rhythm through his setup into a fluid weight transfer, consistently keeping his hands back and attacking the ball with his wrists and arms. He shows an advanced ability to adjust in-swing, he handles velocity, and there’s enough pull-side pop to keep pitchers honest. He posts plus run times with good instincts on the bases, and the defensive projection is that of a fundamentally sound, solid-if-unspectacular glove at the keystone. So how come he doesn’t get more attention, you may ask? Well, he was a D3 player in college who’s been age-appropriate for each level, and he toils in the Dodgers’ system, where he’s approximately the 412th-best prospect, give or take. He can play, though.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Brett Phillips, Willy Adames, Rafael Devers, Pedro Fernandez, and Peter Lambert.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Brett Phillips, OF Milwaukee Brewers (Double-A Biloxi): 3-for-5, 3 HR.
One of the big question marks about Phillips after he was shipped to Milwaukee in the Carlos Gomez trade was whether or not he was going to hit for power. One game does not a power hitter make, but it does show you that there’s at least a semblance of pop in his left-handed bat. In all honesty, he doesn’t have to hit for a ton of power, as he draws walks, hits the ball all over the field, and plays above-average defense in center. If he can turn a few more of those hits into dingers, he’s a potential All-Star, but even without many homers, there’s an awful lot to like.
