Minor League Update

Games of May 15

by Wilson Karaman


Hitter of the Day:

Eloy Jimenez, RF, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 2-4, R, HR, RBI
He’s baaaaaaaack. After losing out on the season’s first six weeks on account of a bum shoulder, the Cubs’ top prospect hasn’t missed a beat in going five for his first 11 with yesterday’s inaugural dinger. And it was a dinger, alright. This ball was, um, hit.

Pitcher of the Day:

Mitchell White, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers (High-A Rancho Cucamonga): 7 IP, ER, 3 H, 8 K
White’s been on a hard pitch count so far, so he hadn’t so much as seen the sixth inning, let alone the seventh. He did last night on account of supreme efficiency, as he recorded 21 outs on just 67 pitches. Visalia has a poor lineup, but White was on point from the jump, surrendering just one hit through six. When that cutter’s cutting he’s as tough as you’ll see at High A, and he’s now given up just seven earned runs in six non-at-Lancaster starts.

Others of Note:

Amed Rosario, SS, New York Mets (Triple-A Las Vegas): 2-5, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, SB
Rosario’s early-season dominance can’t even be discounted by his launching pad of a home field, as he’s hitting .400 on the road so far. The rumblings are getting louder – it needs to be above the cacophony of burning dumpster and tears that the modern Mets make – and at this rate it should surprise nobody if he finds his way to Queens after a certain deadline passes in somewhere around a month’s time.
