Monday Morning Ten Pack: Futures Game Edition

8

Jason Parks and BP Prospect Staff

Notes on Miguel Almonte, Addison Russell, and eight other players who will represent their teams on the USA and World rosters at Citi Field.

Miguel Almonte, RHP, Royals (Low-A Lexington)

I’ve been on the Almonte bandwagon since his easy delivery first caught my eye during a fall instructional league game on the backfields in Arizona. I’m a sucker for an easy delivery and an effortless release, and Almonte won my heart that day by pumping a low-90s fastball for strikes and flashing a changeup that was already a near-plus offering. Fast-forward to his full-season debut, and the bandwagon is starting to look like a bus depot, as the 20-year-old continues to take steps forward with the arsenal and the production, working a fastball in the 92-97 range, flashing multiple breaking-ball looks including a bat-missing curve, and throwing a nasty changeup. Almonte’s inclusion on the Futures Game roster was a win for the young Dominican arm, a win for the Royals’ amateur scouting and player development teams, and a win for every wannabe scout that finds arousal in easy arm action and heavily pronated changeups. —Jason Parks

Minor League Update: Games of Tuesday, June 25

Zach Mortimer

Miguel Almonte had himself a day, as did Mason Williams.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Miguel Almonte, RHP, Royals (Low-A Lexington): 7.2 IP, 7 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 12 K. When we talk about a prospect who could take a major step onto the prospect radar with a productive second half, Almonte comes to mind. The breaking ball is still developing, but the fastball can touch the upper 90s when needed, and the changeup has a chance to be special; 28.1 IP, 26 H, 7 ER, 6 BB, 35 K in five June starts.

Position Prospect of the Day: Mason Williams, CF, Yankees (High-A Tampa): 3-5, 2B, HR, 3 R, RBI, BB, SB. Anyone who is a regular reader knows that Williams is not my guy at all. The mixture of skill set and makeup is not one that I would seek out. That said, I can’t ignore the fact that he does have plenty of tools, and if he is able to mature on and off the field he has a chance to be an everyday regular; .341/.372/.537 with 3 2B, 1 3B, and 1 HR in last 41 at-bats.
