Notes on 12 prospects, including Marlins righty Anthony Desclafani and Blue Jays first baseman Gabe Jacobo.
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Anthony DeSclafani, RHP, Marlins (Double-A Jacksonville): 7 IP, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. DeSclafani still possesses a plus-plus fastball, and after a rough July, he has turned the corner in August, allowing only one earned run and striking out 19 in 20 1/3 innings.
Position Prospect of the Day: Gabe Jacobo, 1B, Blue Jays (Double-A New Hampshire): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI. Jacobo's two-homer game tonight gives him five since being promoted to Double-A 26 games ago. He had been highly regarded for his defense in the past, and he’s now batting .346/.403/.495 in 106 at-bats with New Hampshire.
