Notes on Royce Lewis, Nick Senzel, Nick Kingham, Rowdy Tellez, Kolby Allard, Yordan Alvarez, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Nick Senzel, 3B, Cincinnati Reds (Double-A Pensacola): 3-4, BB, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, SB, K
Senzel has done pretty much exactly what scouts predicted he’d do at every stage of his development thus far. He’s a really good hitter, and the pop has really started to translate from the doubles kind to the over-the-fence kind since he elevated beyond the Florida State League.

Notes on Austin Hays, Corbin Martin, Rookie Davis, Daniel Tillo, Dylan Cozens, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Austin Hays, OF, Baltimore Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 2-5, 2 R, 3B, HR, 5 RBI
Hays can show you all five tools. While his best tool is a plus arm, his raw power could make a case for that distinction. He’s now slugging over .600 for the season and is forcing us to make a tough decision on if him or Chance Sisco will be the top Orioles prospect next season.

Notes on Brent Honeywell, Eloy Jimenez, Daz Cameron, Isaac Paredes, Seth Romero, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Isaac Paredes, SS, Detroit Tigers (Low-A, West Michigan): 4-6, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI
Just acquired from the Cubs in the Justin Wilson trade, Paredes seems to be adjusting quickly. While on the smaller side, Paredes does have good raw power, which has been playing this year with a lot of extra base hits. While he might not be a SS long term, he profiles at either 2B or 3B.

Notes on MacKenzie Gore, Fernando Tatis Jr., Pedro Gonzalez, Michel Baez, Chance Sisco, Francisco Mejia, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Pedro Gonzalez, OF, Colorado Rockies (Rookie, Grand Juncton): 3-4, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB
Signed for $1.3M in 2014 out of the Dominican, Gonzalez is one of the most polarizing players in the system. While he has an extremely high ceiling, he offers plus speed, arm strength, and raw power, he has been prone to chase in Rookie ball. While still young (will be 20 in November), and with a long way to go, I wouldn’t exactly be rushing to pick him up in your fantasy leagues.

Ronald Acuna continues his assault on Triple-A, Austin Meadows is back on the field, and more.

Prospect of the Weekend:
D.J. Stewart
, OF, Orioles (Double-A, Bowie): 6-17, 3 R, 2B, 3 HR, 14 RBI, K.

Stewart has turned it on of late, including a big weekend that offered a home run each day, and plenty of runs driven in. Blessed with average hitting ability and the potential for average game power at the big-league level, Stewart could develop the offensive game to support his defensive profile, which is limited to left field.

Notes on Brent Honeywell, Cody Thomas, A.J. Puk, Michael Chavis, Michael Chavis, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Cody Thomas, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers (Low-A Great Lakes): 3-5, 3 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI, K
Thomas played very little actual baseball as an amateur, with the lion’s share of his athletic attention spent on backup quarterbacking the Oklahoma Sooners. He turned heads in his Pioneer League debut last year, though, with raw tools and athleticism aplenty. The realities of professional baseball have beset upon him a bit this year in full-season, but yesterday’s outburst wasn’t particularly out of line for a plus-powered masher. It’s a long term project, but you know what they say…never bet against an elite athlete.

Notes on Travis Demeritte, Garrett Williams, Jason Groome, Kevin Merrell, Mitchell White, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Travis Demeritte, 2B, Atlanta Braves (Double-A, Mississippi): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB
While it seems like Demeritte is blocked for the forseeable future because of Albies and Swanson; you never know what can happen, but they will find a way. Demeritte’s plus power will find a place in the big leagues, whether it is at 2B or even 3B.

Notes on Monte Harrison, Tyler Mahle, Dillon Peters, Tanner Houck, Ronald Acuna, Brent Rooker, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Monte Harrison, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (High-A, Carolina): 3-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 K
Don’t worry if you have forgotten about Harrison these past couple years, he has been injured a lot. Don’t fret though, Craig Goldstein, myself, and many others have left seats on the bandwagon for you. One of the best athletes in the system, Harrison’s tools could rival that of Lewis Brinson’s, the only difference being that Brinson is two years older and in the majors.

Notes on Bo Bichette, Michel Baez, Franklin Barreto, MacKenzie Gore, Walker Buehler, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Bo Bichette, SS, Blue Jays (High-A, Dunedin): 4-4, 4 R, 2B, BB, 2 SB
With a four-hit night Bichette bumped his average up to .387 since moving to High-A, giving him a higher batting average than the impressive .384 he posted in Low-A earlier this year. I mean, it’s not the .427 he hit in rookie ball last year, but it’ll do.

Sixto Sanchez, Alec Hansen, Ronald Acuna, and Jose Siri and the hit streak that just won't quit.

Prospect of the Weekend:
Billy McKinney
, OF, Yankees (Triple-A, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre): 8-13, 7 R, 2 2B, 2 3B, 2 HR, 8 RBI, BB, 2 K.

To be completely honest, and I can’t really explain this, it’s been a little while since my prospect-oriented brain actually though about McKinney. It’s not as though I’ve abandoned any vision of him as a big-league hitter, but I just hadn’t thought about him in a while. Well, with a weekend like this, I should certainly rectify that and step back to look at where he could still fit into the Yankees’ future.

Notes on Royce Lewis, Jon Duplantier, Ryan McMahon, Calvin Mitchell, Chase Vallot, and more.

Hitters of the Day:

The DSL Yankees: 21 R, 11 H, 21 BB, 9 K
I can’t stress enough how magical this box score is. First things first, they scored 19 of their 21 runs in one inning. Not a typo. All told, my dudes plated 21 on 11 hits, thanks to 21 freaking walks. Nobody in the entire lineup tallied more than two hits. They hit no home runs. They knocked only three extra base hits – all triples – in the entire game. They even gave up 13 just because they could! You could live through a million more healthcare votes and never see anything like this again.
