Minor League Daily Update: Friday 5/7/2010

Here is Friday’s group of minor league players.  Their statistics shown are for April 30 through May 6.  A couple more pitchers were added to Friday’s group since Jhoulys Chacin was promoted.  They are Trevor May, Jordan Lyles, and Alex Colome of the Phillies, Astros, and Rays organizations respectively.

Michael Stanton is an absolute monster – if you look at his line below (after the jump) you will see an amazing performance for the week.  But, you should also note that the previous week was even better.  There is a lot of chatter about his huge blast last night that went some estimated 500 ft.  Eh, I guess the kid can hit a little bit.

EDIT:  Starlin Castro was just promoted to the bigs and will join the Cubs this weekend  vs. Cincinnati.  Ryan Theriot will move to 2B.  Found the story on Fangraphs.com.

Some quick notes on the players above:

  • Yonder Alonso has had an up and down year so far – this past week was a down part. 
  • Starlin Castro is real good – good solid week and will push for end of the year time with the everyday SS gig in 2011 with his name on it.
  • Michael Stanton = good.  Leads the minor leagues in HR, SLG, and RBI.  Leads all of baseball including the majors in HR by a couple over Paul Konerko.
  • This was a positive week for Jose Iglesias – doesn’t look like he will be much offensively which is a shame since his defense is superb.
  • Jemile Weeks had a great week and is now over .300 for the year and is flashing both his power and speed.  Should push for the 2B job in Oakland next year.
  • Pedro Alvarez is finally heating back up – he was slumping since his red-hot first week – now up to 7HR on the year and has raised his average from the .220 range up to .260.
  • Carlos Santana keeps plugging along and biding his time.  He may very well be the best offensive player for Cleveland when he is called up – and that should say more about how bad Cleveland has been than how good Santana is.
  • Chris Davis continues to play well in AAA.  He has 14 RBI in 11 games since being sent down.  If his play doesn’t earn him another shot in Texas, it most certainly is making him more and more attractive as a trade piece.
  • New addition to the list, Trevor May, is a nice prospect for the Phillies with 39K in 24 IP and owns a 2.25 ERA so far this year.  He struck out 16 batters in 11 Innings of work this week and only walked 4. 
  • Aaron Crow has now had 2 solid starts in a row in which he has allowed 3 ER in his last 15 IP.  Looks to be getting things back in line.
  • Mike Montgomery was promoted to AA and pitched very well in his debut.  He got the win while pitching 5.1 innings and striking out 8 and only walking 1.  Montgomery leave behind A-ball with 3ER allowed in 24.2 Innings pitched and striking out 33.
  • Kyle Drabek has been solid lately after being up and down thus far this year.  He has allowed 3ER in his last 18.1 IP.
  • Trevor Reckling continues to walk too many batters.
  • Derek Holland is playing the waiting game for his call up to Texas.  He is now 4-1 with a 0.93 ERA (4ER in 38.1 IP).
  • Alex Colome waled 6 batters his last time out but got the win.  So far this season he has struck out 35 batters in 33 innings.
  • Jordan Lyles of the Houston system won his start this week.  On the year, he has 29K in 29 IP while only allowing 5BB in that span.
