Minor League Update: AFL Recap for Games of October 15


Jeff Moore

Notes on 10 prospects, including Cubs outfielder Albert Almora and Nationals lefty Sammy Solis.

Hitter of the Day: Albert Almora, CF, Cubs (Mesa Solar Sox): 2-4, R, 2 RB, BB. It’s difficult for a hitter to maintain success when not playing every day, but that’s exactly what Almora has done, collecting his third multi-hit game in as many tries in the AFL despite playing in just half of his team’s games. Such is life in the AFL. Almora has solid tools across the board, but he has the advanced feel for hitting that so many toolsy players lack which will allow his other abilities to develop more completely.

Pitcher of the Day: Sammy Solis, LHP, Nationals (Mesa Solar Sox): 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 8 K. Eight strikeouts in any game is usually a good sign. In the AFL, where the outings are much shorter is a sign that Solis was dominant on Tuesday afternoon. The lefthander isn’t a big strikeout guy, but he can rack them up with his changeup, which has the potential to miss bats against aggressive swingers.
