Minor League Update: Games of Thursday, August 15


Zach Mortimer

Notes on 17 prospects, including Braves lefty Lucas Sims and Mariners outfielder Jabari Blash.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Lucas Sims, RHP, Braves (Low-A Rome): 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K. Sims offers a mature arsenal for a 19-year-old: a potential plus fastball, a plus curveball, and a solid-average changeup. Sims has a feel for pitching and still has a solid mid-rotation; 47.2 IP, 29 H, 17 ER, 22 BB, 52 K in last nine starts.

Position Prospect of the Day: Jabari Blash, RF, Mariners (Double-A Jackson): 3-4, 2 HR, 3 R, 3 RBI, BB, K. The book on Blash has not changed much; he still has easy plus power, a plus arm, and average running ability. And, yes, the ultimate future still hinges on whether Blash can make the necessary adjustments to sustain an adequate contact rate.
