Notes on 14 prospects, including first-overall pick Mark Appel, plus a minor-league veteran who notched double-digit strikeouts in relief.
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Brad Allen, RHP, Diamondbacks (Low-A South Bend): 4.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K. In tonight’s edition of the non-prospect who shoved, I feature Brad Allen. Allen is a right-handed pitcher out of Arkansas State, and is pitching in Low-A at the age of 24. He had it all working tonight, racking up 10 strikeouts in relief.
Position Prospect of the Day: Joc Pederson, CF, Dodgers (Double-A Chattanooga): 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 R, 3 RBI. Joc makes it back on the list, and the story won’t change on my end. I believe in Pederson as an everyday player, and the makeup may give him a chance to overachieve.
