Minor League Level Review (AAA): Taveras Activated, Bogaerts and Ventura Arrive

USA TODAY Sports

Jason Hunt takes a look at the action from the two AAA leagues in the past two weeks, including top prospects Yordano Ventura, Bryce Brentz, Oscar Taveras, Xander Bogaerts and others in this weekend's Minor League Level Review.

Every other Sunday, I will be taking a quick look at some of the top prospects at the AAA 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 Friday, 6/14/13.

  • Yordano Ventura was promoted to AAA Omaha back on the 3rd, and so far the 9 innings he has thrown have been a bit of a mixed bag. It's a very small sample size, so let's see how it looks in another two weeks.
  • The Pirates called up Gerrit Cole, who went out and threw 6 1/3 innings against the Giants en route to his first major league win. He'll start again today against the Dodgers, and honestly I think he's up to stay.
  • The Orioles sent Kevin Gausman back to AAA after struggling through his last few starts in the Majors. He'll be back up at some point, but it may not be until later in the season.
  • Tony Cingrani is getting very familiar with the flight from Louisville to Cincinnati, as he was called up for a start on the 11th, and then sent back right after. It will drive fantasy owners nuts, but this is probably how he's going to be used for the short term as the Reds' rotation continues to pitch well.
  • With the return of Jake Westbrook from the disabled list, the Cardinals' sent Michael Wacha back to AAA Memphis.
  • Zack Wheeler is expected to be called up for a start on Tuesday, and Craig Goldstein has the info you need to know about Wheeler going forward (including GIFs!)
