Minor League Daily Update: Friday 5/28/2010

Here is Friday’s group of minor league players.  Their statistics shown are for May 21 through May 27.  Yesterday in the minor league update comments, we discussed Andrew Cashner going to the bullpen and Jay Jackson making the start after being moved to the pen and dominating.  Jackson ended up with an outing that consisted of 4 innings pitched (61 pitches / 44 strikes) with 4 hits, 2 ER, 5K and 1BB.  Cashner made a relief appearance also in the game and threw 1 inning with 3 hits, 1R (0ER), and 2K vs. 0BB.

Alex Colome will be moving up prospect lists.  Relatively uninspiring performances by the pitchers in the Friday list though.  Mike Montgomery is stellar but had his first bad outing of the year yesterday.  Michael Stanton continues to mash and I suspect he won’t be on the minor league update list for much longer.  Pedro Alvarez also had a nice offensive week.  Click below for more stats and info.

  • Mike Stanton is striking out 28% of the time, which is high.  But, he is an offensive force and will be in Florida sooner rather than later.  He is maintaining his high walk totals most likely due to pitchers not throwing to him but he remains HR leader for professional baseball.
  • Jose Iglesias has been solid at the plate which compliments his excellent defense.  While he won’t hit for tons of power, he will score runs and as he learns to use more of his speed, he could move fast through the Red Sox system.  Already at AA, he will get a good look in 2011 spring training unless the wheels fall off this year.
  • Pedro Alvarez continues his solid year with a .267 Average and 10HR and 43RBI.
  • Carlos Santana shouldn’t be waiting much longer for his call-up to Cleveland.  Like a lot of the upper tier prospects, its only a matter of the clock striking early June.
  • Jordan Danks is striking out at near Greg Halman type levels.  He now sports 61K’s in only 44 games (174 AB) and has walked just 17 times.  That’s a 35% K-rate… OK, not quite to Halman levels but certainly Halman-esque.
  • Trevor May now has 60K in 39 Innings.  He also has 26 walks.  About a 13.8 K/9 – Super!  6 BB/9 – Yuck!
  • Aaron Crow is now 2-3 on the year.  In 60 innings he has allowed 8HR (1.2 HR/9).  I like Crow if he finds some command and keeps the ball in the park.
  • Mike Montgomery continues to impress but did get hit around yesterday. 
  • Kyle Drabek is has 26BB in 59 IP for a 4 BB/9 (not the worst but still not good).  His ground out to fly out ratio sits at 1.8 which is helping him tremendously. 
  • Trevor Reckling’s report can be copy and paste from week to week.  Too many walks and too many HR.  Until that gets fixed, CTL+C and CTL+P.
  • Alex Colome is quickly becoming one of my favorite players to look at when it comes to the weekly updates.  His start on April 8 he went 3 innings and gave up 6 earned runs.  Since that start he has 8 starts totaling 48.2 innings.  In those starts he has given up a total of 6 earned runs.  That’s a 1.12 ERA.  He has pitched at least 6 innings in 7 of 8 of those starts and is 4-0 in May.  This kid will be a hot ticket in keeper leagues come next year and if you are in a league with a minor league roster, I would grab him now.  It will be several years before he gets a shot in Tampa – but good is good.

 

As always, comments and questions are welcome.  Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.
