Minor League Update

Games of May 18

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Sam Travis, 1B, Boston Red Sox (Triple-A, Pawtucket): 5-6, R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, K
An unfortunate ACL injury last May ended his season when Travis looked to be knocking on the door for some big-league time. Back healthy, Travis had a slow April but has turned it on in May. While the power might not play as a plus offering, it should still result in 10-15 home runs with lots of doubles in Fenway.

Pitcher of the Day:

Cody Reed, LHP, Arizona Diamondbacks (Low-A, Kane County): 9 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 9 K
This Cody Reed (not to be confused with the likewise large and left-handed one in Cincinnati) is doing what he did last year in Low-A: dominate. Unfortunately he ran into the Visalia desert last season, as well as dead-arm last July. His changeup is his best offering, but his lack of fastball velocity might hurt him at his next level.

Other Notable Performances:

Cooper Hummel, C, Milwaukee Brewers (High-A, Carolina): 3-3, 2 R, 2B, 3B, HR, 3 RBI, BB
With the High-A team as an “insurance” catcher, Hummel was activated for today’s game and fell a single short of the cycle. A drink to you, good sir.
