Minor League Update: AFL Recap for Games of November 5

Notes on nine prospects, including Red Sox first baseman Travis Shaw and Mets righty Hansel Robles.

Hitter of the Day: Travis Shaw, 1B, Red Sox (Surprise Saguaros): 2-3, 2 R, HR, BB, K. Shaw is an on-base machine that is unfortunately stuck playing first base. He has some pop, although it usually comes in the form of doubles, but his real value comes from what happens when he doesn’t swing. He likely won’t be a starting first baseman, at least not on a first-division team like the Red Sox, but there’s a niche out there for him somewhere.

Pitcher of the Day: Hansel Robles, RHP, Mets (Scottsdale Scorpions): 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Robles is a relatively inexperienced prospect for his age (23) having taken four seasons to get to a full-season league and never having thrown more than 95 1/3 innings in a season despite working as a starter. Robles’ performance has rarely been in question, but as an undersized right-hander (5-foot-11), he needs to prove that he can handle the workload as a starter.
