Nick Senzel (CIN, #1) – 8 for 24, 4 doubles, 1 HR. Senzel, despite just 3 HR so far, is hitting .303 with 6 SB and 18 doubles on the year now, including one double in 7 of his last 9 games. His HR/ FB is just 7.5%, so

Despite losing at home yesterday at the hands of the Cleveland Indians, everything has seemed to be clicking recently for the Houston Astros. The team has not lost any of its last six series, the most recent one being from April 25-27 (coincidentally, to the
Brendan Rodgers (COL, #1) – 14 for 25, 5 doubles, 2 HR, 1 SB. I must admit; this article explaining Rodgers' KATOH miss from 2016 had me (unnecessarily) worried about Rodgers coming into 2017. But since coming back from injury that sidelined him until 4/24, all Rodgers has done is
Kolby Allard (ATL, #3) – 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 11 K. Allard was straight up dominant in this one (again). He hit his spots with all his pitches and hit career highs in velocity with both his fastball and changeup. His walk rates are low,

Bellinger is regarded as the No.10 prospect in all of baseball according to MLB.com. In 18 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, Bellinger was hitting to a
Week 3 in the books. Here's what I'm interested in:
Lewis Brinson – 13 for 29, 3 doubles, 2 HR, 1 SB. Another A+ offensive week from Brinson, who is now hitting .370/.400/.652 through 46 AB for the Sky Sox. Brinson is ready to go and could contribute in Milwaukee right
Actually the first full week of minor league baseball. Some prospects saw promotions, some saw season ending injuries, and everything in between.
Andrew Benintendi saw his 130th AB last Tuesday, making him no longer a prospect. Adrian Morejon replaces him as #100 on MLB’s top 100 prospects list.
Jay Groome – Placed
Ok, so week 1 wasn't really a full week. It was more like 2-3 games. But Minor League Baseball is under way and some of the games best prospects have gotten off to noteworthy starts.
Yoan Moncada – 8 for 16, 1 homerun, 1 stolen base. Hell of a week for
