Notes on Brett Phillips, Brady Aiken, Dan Vogelbach, Bobby Bradley, Shawn Morimando, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Bobby Bradley, 1B, Cleveland Indians (Double-A Akron): 3-5, 3 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI
As appears to be his wont, Bradley got off to a slow start this season before rounding into form in May and destroying the moon and the stars this month. After posting an absurd 48-percent Three True Outcome rate last year, he’s pushing 40 percent again this season. With nothing else going for him in the tools department, his bat will take him wherever he ends up – which at this rate might just be the middle of Cleveland’s order in about three years.

Notes on Royce Lewis, Yadier Alvarez,, Chase Vallot, Lewis Brinson, Ian Anderson, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Chase Vallot, C, Kansas City Royals (High-A, Wilmington): 2-3, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K
Vallot always had power, he has just had trouble tapping into it at times. The hit tool is still underwhelming, as he sells out for power and can get pull-happy while spinning off breaking balls. If he was a for-sure catcher, this wouldn’t be as big a deal, but he isn’t, so it is.

Notes on Willie Calhoun, Chance Adams, Trent Clark, Shane Bieber, Kaleb Cowart, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Kaleb Cowart, IF, Anaheim Angels (Triple-A Salt Lake City): 6-6, 5 R, 3 2B, 3B, HR, 5 RBI
Yes, the 25-year-old’s career big-league line of .176/.210/.267 has come across two more at-bats than allowed for a position player to retain technical prospect eligibility, and writing about prospects is kind of the point of this column. But…I mean, that box score’s one for the refrigerator, man.

Notes on Franklin Barreto, Kyle Tucker, Dominic Smith, Dillon Tate, Monte Harrison, Sandy Baez, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Monte Harrison, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (Low-A, Wisconsin): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI
If it wasn’t for injuries, Harrison would be in a much higher level. But now that he is healthy, Harrison is showing off what made him so special. Plus runner, plus (to better) raw power, an arguably 80 arm, and a plus defender. He just needs more time at the plate and to stay healthy for it all to come together.

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.
