Minor League Update: Games of Tuesday, November 17th

Brendan Gawlowski

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Nationals second baseman Chris Bostick and Mets righty Nabil Crismatt.

Hitter of the Day: Chris Bostick, 2B, Washington Nationals (Salt River Rafters): 2-3, 3R, 2B, HR, BB.
Bostick has more power than the typical keystone prospect, and he’s capable of spraying line drives all over the field. He struggles with pitches on the outer half though, and often expands the zone too easily. If Bostick learns to control the zone, he could play his way into a big-league role as an offensive-minded backup capable of handling second base and left field.

Checking in on some of the best performers in the desert to date.

Dynasty Dynamics: AFL Progress Reports, Part I

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

The risers and fallers down in the desert.

It’s been a bit since we brought you a prospect progress report, but with postseason play entering its final week and the Arizona Fall League earning more of the spotlight going forward, we thought we’d take a look at some players who got off to interesting starts. This isn’t necessarily just a check in on box-score stars, but rather players who have dynasty value and have seen that value shift one way or the other over the course of the season, and who will be worth keeping tabs on throughout the AFL.

Notes on prospects who stood out in the desert, including Astros first baseman A.J. Reed and Brewers righty Adrian Houser.

Eyes on Alex Reyes, Sean Manaea, Raimel Tapia, Austin Meadows and more.

If you’ve spent too much time mesmerized by the postseason, you might have missed that the Arizona Fall League started this month. The AFL is one of my favorite times of the year, enabling not only the 350 mile trip to a place I consider baseball utopia, but also the chance to evaluate plenty of prospects who I normally would only get to see on video or hear about through scouts. If you are serious about player-development—or if you just want go watch baseball for cheap in warm weather—I seriously recommend making a trip out here.

Here’s a look at some standouts for each club over the first two weeks.

Notes on prospects who stood out in the desert and abroad, including post-hype sleeper Jurickson Profar and Dodgers righty Jharel Cotton.

Hitter of the Day: Jurickson Profar, DH, Texas Rangers (Surprise Saguaros) 2-5, HR, 2B, 2 R, RBI, K

Oh hey there, haven't seen you in a while. Profar may end up the ultimate post-hype sleeper. If the shoulder is finally healthy, there is still “no. 1 prospect in baseball” talent here. The Rangers might have trouble finding him a place to play given Andrus' contract and Odor's awesomeness, but that is one of those good problems to have, and given the time he has missed, Profar will probably need some Triple-A reps in 2016 anyway.

Notes on prospects who stood out in the desert and abroad, including A's infielder Renato Nunez and Mariners lefty James Paxton.

Hitter of the Day: Renato Nunez, 3B, Athletics (AFL Mesa Solar Sox): 3-5, 3 R, 3 HR, 5 RBI, K

Well, then. One thing about Nunez that’s rarely been questioned is the raw power, and he put on a display of it yesterday in the desert. He has some holes in his plate coverage and the kind of aggressive approach that can spell trouble when he’s introduced to new and better arms along the way, but at least one evaluator last summer liked the work ethic enough to override some of those concerns. He curtailed his whiffs this year in posting a solid season at Double-A, and that he survived the dreaded jump from the cozy Cal League to the cavern in Midland at the tender age of 21 was an impressive point in his favor.

A decidedly non-spooky look at prospects playing in Arizona and the Caribbean.

The Arizona and Caribbean leagues were in action yesterday, so let’s see what kind of prospecty goodness they had to offer:
