Minor League Level Review (Low-A):Bombs Away from Gallo, Brinson, Alfaro and Walker

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

Jason Hunt takes a look at the action from the two Low-A leagues in the past two weeks, including Corey Seager, Adam Walker, Joey Gallo, Robert Stephenson and others in this week's Minor League Level Review.

Every other Wednedsay, I will be taking a quick look at some of the top prospects at the Low-A level, including their stats for for the season, and if anything stands out about the performance. The season stats may not always tell us the whole story, but there are usually also some updates on how they are doing these things as opposed to just the numbers themselves. All statistics are courtesy of Fangraphs.com, and are through the games of Monday, 5/20/13.

  • Rafael De Paula is leading the minor leagues with 69 strikeouts, one ahead of Diamondbacks' prospect Archie Bradley. Honestly, I'm wondering how much longer the Yankees will keep him at Low-A given his age and success so far. Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus provided this scouting report in his chat this week:
  • Powerful build; arm speed is near elite; fastball can work 91-95l touch even higher; huge life; misses barrels; shows plus potential with both hard, power curve and changeup; command profile could push him to the 'pen down the line, as could secondary development. He's a big time arm. He's also too good for his level and putting up video game strikeout numbers. I really like him, though. Glad BP put him in the Yankees Top Ten coming into the season despite no stateside experience.
  • Craig profiled Pirates' pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow, who is having a great season so far with West Virginia.
  • Baseball Prospectus posted the first in their series of Eyewitness Accounts last week, with a detailed profile of Robert Stephenson amongst the rest of the pitchers.
