Manny Machado - Orioles SS DOB: 07/06/92
Machado's bat has been in neutral since reaching High-A. In 10 games he is hitting .171 with a home run, 3 walks and 8 strikeouts.
Pomeranz continues to roll along with a league leading 2.06 ERA. He has 88 strikeouts in 70 innings. Pomeranz emerging as a star prospect is yet another success story for the Indians farm system this year that has seen Carlos Carrasco and Alex White contribute in Cleveland.
Brentz is hitting the ball with authority this year. In 17 games since being promoted to High-A he is batting .279 with 8 home runs. Brentz is turning into one of the better power hitting prospects in the minors.
Tyler Townsend - Orioles 1B DOB: 05/14/88
Townsend has increased his power output this season and he currently has an excellent .252 ISO. His 8/58 BB/K ratio is a problem that will need to be fixed before he can hope to succeed at the higher levels.
Anthony Ranaudo - Red Sox SP DOB: 09/09/89
After a shaky first start in the Carolina League Ranaudo was able to string together 3 solid starts in a row. Then his latest 2 starts did some damage to his stats. He allowed 9 runs in 10 innings despite not allowing a walk.
Barret Loux has been on a hot streak, allowing 2 earned runs in his last 3 starts. He has a 3.18 ERA with 92 Ks in 79.1 innings. So far his arm has held up and the Diamondbacks are probably kicking themselves for not signing him.
Miles Head - Red Sox 1B DOB: 05/02/91
41 extra base hits in 66 games propelled Head into High-A where after 6 games he is hitting .333/.360/.458 with 3 doubles.
