Minor League Update: Games of Monday, May 5

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Marlins outfielder Kyle Jensen and Astros righty Mike Foltynewicz.

Hitter of the Night: Kyle Jensen, OF, Marlins (New Orleans, AAA): 5-5, 4 R, 2 2B, 2 HR.
As a 25-year-old right-handed hitting corner outfielder whose only above-average tool is power, Jensen is on the periphery of the prospect world. It takes a heck of a day for a player like that to make it on to the MLU—something along the lines of five hits, four of them for extra bases. Jensen is a bench player/Quad-A guy who will probably get his chances in the majors but never land extended playing time.

Pitcher of the Night: Mike Foltynewicz, RHP, Astros (Oklahoma City, AAA): 6 IP, H, R, 2 BB, 12 K.
We’ve been waiting to see Foltynewicz go deeper into a game, something he hasn’t had a chance to do too often in the Astros’ piggyback starter system. He hasn’t compiled the big strikeout numbers you’d expect from someone who routinely hits triple digits on the radar gun. Monday’s dozen were a career high.

Minor League Update: Games of November 1

Notes on 12 prospects playing in either the Arizona Fall League or the Venezuelan Winter League.

One of the good things about scouring minor league box scores this time of the year is finding familiar names still plugging away and hoping for another chance in the big leagues. And I am happy to announce that there's been a Runelvys Hernandez sighting in the Dominican Winter League! The 34 year-old former Royals and Astros starter, who has a career line of 25-36 with a 5.50 ERA in 82 big league starts (none since 2008), is currently pitching for the Leones del Escogido. Hey, Royals fans. Remember that one time when Runelvys was your Opening Day starter, and he threw like six shutout innings and beat Mark Buehrle and the White Sox? That was awesome. Here are some notable performances from Thursday:
