Notes from the Field: July 12, 2016

0

BP Prospect Staff

Notes on Angel Perdomo, Colin Moran, Wes Rogers, and more.

Carlos Ramirez, RHP, Toronto Blue Jays (High-A Dunedin)
An outfielder turned pitcher, Ramirez has a big arm and has taken well to the mound thus far. With a 6-foot-5, 205-pound body, Ramirez pitches from the stretch with a compact arm action, fair arm speed, and a three-quarters slot. His fastball comes in at 93-95 with some sink. His slider was his go-to secondary with good depth and moderate tilt at 85-87. He is still raw but has an intriguing arm and hasn't pitched for that long. —Steve Givarz

The Call-Up: Colin Moran

2

Kit House and J.P. Breen

The former sixth-overall pick is set to make his debut.

The Situation: The universal favorites to win the division discovered that the universe had other plans. After a slow start that is crippling postseason hopes, the Houston Astros are shaking up the roster by sending a small wave of players to the farm or DL, most notably Carlos Gomez. The newest deck chair on the Titanic is Colin Moran. The old deck chairs were Luis Valbuena and Marwin Gonzalez. Obviously the hot corner deck chairs were not a selling point in the travel brochures when this ship launched in April.

Background: A nephew of B.J. Surhoff, Moran was the ACC player of the year at UNC in 2013 before being selected sixth-overall by the Miami Marlins. After coming to the Astros in the Jarred Cosart deal, the Astros have kept him at Double-A Corpus Christi for the last two seasons and Triple-A Fresno for the beginning of 2016. Although his numbers this year have dropped off slightly, his good average/modest power production has otherwise been remarkably consistent across seasons and levels.

Minor League Update: Games of Sunday, August 18

Notes on 14 prospects, including Pirates lefty Thomas Harlan and Marlins third baseman Colin Moran.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Thomas Harlan, LHP, Pirates (Low-A West Virginia): 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K. A big-bodied left-handed pitcher from Fresno State, Harlan is not really a heralded prospect, but hey, on this night he had it all working.

Position Prospect of the Day: Colin Moran, 3B, Marlins (Low-A Greensboro): 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 R, RBI, K. Moran was drafted so highly because he was at the top of the list of polished college bats. He has a great feel for the strike zone and the power should be enough to play. I've heard whispers that some wonder about the level of power he will develop; he also may have some issues defensively. These are only small warning flags and Moran developed a pedigree at the University of North Carolina that makes him an instant prospect; .306/.325/.500 with 1 2B and 2 HR in last 36 at-bats.
