Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Tyler Jay, Sean Reid-Foley, Jake Bauers, and Rowdy Tellez.

Prospect of the Day:

Tyler Jay, LHP, Minnesota Twins (High-A Fort Myers): 8 IP, 2 H, BB, 11 K
We could reasonably rename this column “Tyler Jay Update” every fifth day at this point. He’s been forcing the issue of consistent spotlight all month, with yesterday’s May capper his best effort in a professional uniform. Both hits were singles, and he didn’t so much as go to a two-ball count in recording his final 15 outs. Not a bad day at the office.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the Memorial Day weekend, led by Rockies pitcher Sam Howard.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Sam Howard, LHP, Colorado Rockies (High-A Modesto): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 10 K.
This was yet another dominant performance for Howard, which has been a recurring theme in the month of May. Yes, he’s a little old for the level, but you can take one step back for the age and two steps forward when you consider what he’s doing in the Cal League. Both the fastball and change flash plus, and his slider has been a real weapon so far in 2016. You could soon see Howard challenging hitters in Double-A Hartford, and maybe challenging big leaguers in the back of the Rockies rotation at some point in the next two seasons.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Zach Eflin, Bradley Zimmer, Mike Yastrzemski, and Andrew Morales.

Prospect of the Day:

Zach Eflin, RP, Philadelphia Phillies (Triple-A Lehigh Valley): 7 IP, 4 H, BB, 6 K.
That’s three straight outstanding starts for Eflin, who continues to evolve into an impressive pitching prospect. He’s a smart kid, and sometimes smart kids take some time to figure things out. After struggling to find a balance between his four- and two-seam fastballs he’s finding that happy place now, and rapid development of a curveball he just added to the mix last year has helped him boost his strikeout totals significantly.

Notes on prospects who stood out this weekend, including Jacob Faria, Daniel Gossett, Adam Brett Walker, Mike Yastrzemski, and Dwight Smith.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Jacob Faria, RHP, Tampa Bay Rays (Double-A Montgomery): 7 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 11 K.
Command has been an issue for Faria in 2016, but it certainly wasn’t an issue on Saturday. When everything is clicking, he’ll show two plus pitches in his fastball and change, and the curveball is a fringe-average offering with enough depth to keep hitters honest. He doesn’t have the upside of some of the other big names in the Rays’ system, but assuming he throws enough strikes, he has a great chance of pitching in the back of someone’s rotation for a long time.

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.
