The Call-Up: Carlos Rodon

2

Christopher Crawford and Bret Sayre

Another phenom clears 12 days away from Chicago.

The situation: Since Madison Bumgarner's final pitch of the 2014 World Series, the White Sox have revamped their roster as much as any team in baseball other than the Padres; and while it’s far too early to panic, the moves haven’t provided early success as Chicago sits at 4-7. After two quality starts at Triple-A Charlotte, Rodon getse the call-up on Monday as the Pale Hose hope their top pitching prospect can make a difference out of the bullpen.

Going Yard: Quick Hits: Forrest Wall

Ryan Parker

A quick scouting look at Forrest Wall's mechanics at the plate.

Over the next few weeks, Going Yard will focus on one hitter and give a quick analysis of that player's swing. Quick Hits kicks off with Colorado Rockies second-base prospect Forrest Wall.

Updates on Corey Seager, Julio Urias, Mark Appel, and more.

Hitter of the Day: Corey Seager, 3B, Dodgers (Tulsa, AA): 2-4, 2 R, 3B, HR. Great hitter, off to a fantastic start, yada yada yada. There’s not much else to say about Seager’s bat that hasn’t already been said. He’s just a great hitter. It’s worth noting, however, that he did play third base on Thursday night. Many have suggested that he has been destined to move there out of athletic necessity, but not all agree, myself included. He won’t be Andrelton Simmons at short, but he has enough range to handle it in his 20s. The Dodgers may be thinking short-term, however, and if they have any part of 2015 in their minds for Seager, they want to at least get him some experience at third base in case he needs to fill in for Juan Uribe at some point.

Updates on Trevor Story, Alex Reyes, Kohl Stewart, and more.

Hitter of the Day: Trevor Story, 2B/SS, Rockies (Tulsa, AA): 3-3, 3 R, 2 2B, 3B, 2 BB. If 2014 was a step back in the right direction for Story, then 2015 is heading towards being a giant leap. Story got back on track last season in the California League, but wasn’t able to carry it over after a promotion, leaving questions about how much of his success was hitting environment-inflated. He’s answering them thus far this season, carrying over an impressive AFL stint into Double-A success. Story is a quick-twitch athlete with bat speed to spare, but issues putting it to good use from time to time. He can be streaky, with holes in his swing and approach that are going to limit his hit tool at the major-league level, but in between he should do a lot of damage for a middle infielder.

Notes on Corey Seager, Carlos Correa, and more.

Hitter of the Day: Preston Tucker, OF, Astros (Fresno, AAA): 2-5, 3 R, 2 HR, K. Tucker isn’t the kind of guy that gets scouts talking, as his tools generally don’t jump off the field at you. But it’s impossible to argue with his production, which has always included big power numbers dating back to his days as a Florida Gator. He may not profile as an everyday player on a first-division team, but power is a scarce commodity in today’s game and Tucker has it. That alone will find him a role on a big-league roster sometime soon.

Notes on Byron Buxton, Corey Seager, Nomar Mazara, and more.

Byron Buxton, OF, Twins (Chattanooga, AA): 4-6, R, 2B, 3B, CS. It feels like it’s been forever since we’ve been able to rave about Buxton. Sure, he’s still the top prospect in all of baseball, but it doesn’t feel like it right? It’s difficult to be overlooked when you’re at the top, but given the plethora of Cubs prospects dominating the prospect landscape, the strength of the Twins system surrounding Buxton, and the general lack of attention span of all of us, it’s easy to see why we’ve forgotten about Buxton to a certain extent. After an injury-riddled 2014 campaign, we’re still in virtually the same place we were a year ago with Buxton. With a Double-A challenge lying ahead of him, a healthy season of Buxton will tell us a lot about his development. Clearly, the tools are still well intact.

Monday Morning Ten Pack: April 13, 2015

BP Prospect Staff

Updates on David Dahl, Jesse Biddle, Mitch Brown, and more as the minor-league season kicks off and the Ten Pack makes its triumphant return.

Blake Snell, LHP, Tampa Bay Rays (High-A Charlotte)
There were plenty of solid pitching performances over the first weekend of the minor-league baseball season, but none was quite as dominant as Snell was on Thursday against Fort Myers. Snell struck out 10 over six shutout innings against a less-than-stellar Miracle lineup, but the story of the evening was the improved arsenal—and more importantly—the substantially improved command. The 2011 first-round selection sat 92-94 mph with his fastball on an NL West scout’s radar gun, and he touched 97 with some life to the offering as well. The slider and change both flashed plus as well, with the slider being the more consistent offering, with hard tilt that can cause swings and misses from hitters from both sides of the plate.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including, Matt Olson, Trevor Williams, and Steven Matz.

Welcome back to the start of another wonderful baseball season, now fully underway with the commencement of the minor-league schedule last evening. What that means in this space, of course, is another season of the Minor League Update.

It's back! And you'll never guess who's leading it off!

It feels good to be back.

No more draft preparation. No more overanalyzing splits from the previous season. No more ADP. No more spring training stats (sort of). It’s all eschewed for the sights and sounds of real, live baseball.

League Preview Series

2

Tucker Blair

The league previews of the minors continues with a look at the Southern League.

The Double-A level will be a test for many of the following prospects, but the Southern League is gleaming with talent heading into the 2015 season. A good portion of prospects from our Top 101 will play most of the season in this league, and many more will trickle up through the ranks during the year. Double-A is a dramatic training ground in player development, and many questions are answered during this time.
