Future Shock Blog: Minor League Update: Games of August 18

Kevin Goldstein

How D.J. Mitchell might be the first Yankee pitcher to get called up this year and notes on 28 more prospects.

D.J. Mitchell, RHP, Yankees (Triple-A Empire State): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K.

Mitchell is not the best prospect on the Yankees Triple-A staff, but don't be surprised if he's the first to the majors. Scouts think he could be effective as either a back-end starter or middle reliever, as while he's on the small side, he's ultra-athletic and features a fastball that has slightly above-average velocity and plenty of movement. He's not going to be a star, but he should have big league value, even on a championship-level roster.

The tater trots for September 27: Prince Fielder's trio of taters, Ryan Roberts' walkoff, Rickie Weeks' massive bomb, Conor Gillaspie's "inside the parker", and many more.

Tuesday was the second-to-last day of the season and, not only were we overflowing with things to talk about around the league (Rays/Sox, Cards/Braves, etc.), we were also overflowing with things to talk about here at the Tater Trot Tracker. Of course, 44 home runs in one night will do that, game #16 or game #161.

Prospectus Hit and Run: A Night in the Life of Team Entropy

11

Jay Jaffe

The playoff races have been de-zombified, and Team Entropy was on the prowl, looking for meaningful baseball going into the final game.

Welcome to Team Entropy! Grab a seat on the couch, and here, have a beer. You've been invited to this party because after almost exactly six months and 160 games of regular-season baseball, you've suspended the need to root for a specific team and are working for the greater good, more interested in maximizing the amount of end-of-season chaos the remaining schedule can produce. The amount of season, even, if it comes to a 163rd game—or two.

Musings on the essence and eternal return of the timeless game.

Philosophy has long shared a connection with baseball, but it is the rare player who has chosen the discipline as a course of study. Ryan Lavarnway is just such a ballplayer, having majored in philosophy at Yale prior to being chosen by the Red Sox in the sixth round of this year's draft. A right-handed-hitting catcher who led the NCAA in 2007 with a .467 average, Lavarnway made his professional debut with short-season Lowell, where he hit .211 with a pair of home runs in 71 at-bats. Lavarnway sat down to share his thoughts on Nietzsche, free will on the diamond, and the philosophical mindset of Cubs fans.
