Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Gavin Lux, David Thompson, Ricky Aracena, and Mitch Keller.

Editor’s Note: With the end of the full-season leagues, there will be an abbreviated slate for the remainder of the minor-league campaign.

Prospect of the (Truncated-Schedule) Day: Gavin Lux, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers (Rookie Ogden): 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI
The 20th-overall pick has taken quite the shining to Pioneer League pitching since his promotion last week, reaching base in all seven games and hitting at a cool .423 clip. The foundations of a strong, across-the-board shortstop are here, yearning to be free.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the holiday weekend, including Sean Newcomb, Matt Chapman, Brandon Woodruff, and Josh Staumont.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Sean Newcomb, LHP, Atlanta Braves (Double-A Mississippi): 7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
Expectations for Newcomb were sky-high after coming over in the deal for Andrelton Simmons, and the results have been decidedly mixed. When he’s been at his best—as he was on Friday—Newcomb still shows ridiculously good stuff; a plus-plus fastball, a breaking-ball that flashes in that range but is mostly plus, and a good=enough change. It’s just a matter of showing all three pitches on a consistent basis, and throwing them for strikes. When he does like he did that night, he looks like a future no. 3 starter. It’s up for debate whether or not he can do it consistently enough to reach that level.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Jose Berrios, Erick Fedde, Jorge Alfaro, and Austin Riley.

Prospect of the Day:

Jose Berrios, RHP, Minnesota Twins (Triple-A Rochester): 8 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 14 K
I believe that Berrios no longer technically qualifies as a prospect. For him and a line this good, we’ll make an exception. Yes, he’s struggled tremendously at the big-league level. It’s been terribly frustrating to see him struggle to locate anything while pitching in Minnesota. This is still one of the most talented young right-handers in baseball, however, and games like this help illustrate that fact. He’ll be fine. I think.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Mitch Keller, Ian Happ, Jordan Stephens, and Logan Shore.

Prospect of the Day:

Mitch Keller, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (High-A Bradenton): 6 IP, 5 H, BB, 7 K
Making his High-A debut, Keller missed not a beat in running to five his streak of starts without allowing an earned run – a span of 29 innings (and counting). His heavy fastball runs up to 95, and he pairs it with a nasty hook that’ll flash plus when he’s able to land it consistently. With last year’s arm issue hopefully in his rearview at this point, he looks the part of Pittsburgh’s next best pitching prospect.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Nick Gordon, Cody Bellinger, Tyler Beede, and Miguel Diaz.

Prospect of the Day:

Nick Gordon, SS, Minnesota Twins (High-A Fort Myers): 5-for-5, 2 R, 3B
After a so-so—and that might be putting it nicely—2015 season, Gordon has shown why so many were so high on him in the 2014 draft this year. The hit tool is probably closer to above average than plus, but that will certainly play, especially when you combine it with his above-average speed and 55-grade glove. A superstar he will not be, but a solid regular at a premium position is a very valuable thing. Gordon can reach that level relatively easily.

Notes on prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Jose De Leon, Jeimer Candelario, Nick Torres, and Carson Fulmer.

Prospect of the Weekend:

Jose De Leon, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers (Triple-A Oklahoma City): 7.2 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 13 K
On July 25th, De Leon gave up seven runs on eight hits while getting four outs. Since that start, De Leon has given up six runs in 41 innings. In his last three starts, he’s struck out 33 hitters in 21 innings while allowing just four runs. Long story shorter, Jose De Leon is on fire, and by all accounts, he’s ready to pitch for the Dodgers.

Christopher Crawford

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Michael Kopech, Chance Adams, Arvicent Perez, and Colton Welker.

Prospect of the Day:

Michael Kopech, RHP, Boston Red Sox (High-A Salem): 7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 10 K
This is becoming commonplace. Kopech’s stuff is just too advanced for hitters in the Carolina League to stand a chance; as seen in all of the strikeouts and the .144 batting average against. The command still needs work, but he’s just 20, and he’s made some progress there in 2016. The upside here competes with that of any right-handed pitcher in the lower levels.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Allen Cordoba, Zack Collins, Trevor Clifton, and Ricardo Sanchez.

Prospect of the Day:

Allen Cordoba, SS, St. Louis Cardinals (Rookie Johnson City): 6-8, BB, 5 R, 2B, 3B, RBI, SB, CS.
Evidently Cordoba is a fan of my work, as he keeps smoking line drives all over the place and forcing his way into this column on the nights I’m running it. Yesterday’s outburst in a doubleheader included a walk-off in the first game, and came on the heels of a four-hit night the day before. He’s hitting .500 now over his last 10 games with six walks and just two whiffs, and may just be ready for a new challenge.
