Minor League Level Review (High-A): Hawkins, Williams, Lindor, Nicolino

USA TODAY Sports

Jason Hunt takes a look at some of the top prospects in the three High-A leagues, including a recent report on Courtney Hawkins, updates on Mason Williams, and the promotions of multiple pitchers in this week's installment of Minor League Level Review.

Every other Sunday, I will be taking a quick look at some of the top prospects at the Low-A level, including their stats 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, 7/19/13.

  • Nathaniel Stoltz provided in-depth updates on Luke Jackson and A.J. Cole over at Fangraphs. Jackson's name has been bandied about as a part of a potential Matt Garza trade.
  • Something I can't say I've honestly ever heard of happening in the minors, as the Modesto Nuts (and through them the Colorado Rockies) fired manager Lenn Sakata. It sounds from the post over at Purple Row that the manager wasn't on board with the developmental plans for the minor leaguers there.
  • DRays Bay asks whether the Rays are financially hurt by having the Florida State League right down the road.
  • We saw a number of pitchers in the High-A leagues promoted to AA, including Edwin Escobar, Justin Nicolino, and Kyle Zimmer.
  • Red Sox' prospect Henry Owens threw 6 innings as a part of a no-hitter last week as well. He's a prospect I'm hoping to take a look at in the next few weeks.
