Week 1 Prospect Rundown (4/6 – 4/8)

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 Moncada, who put his power/speed combo on display while keeping his strikeouts in check. If he keeps hitting, he’s going to force his way into Chicago by mid-season.

Austin Meadows – 0 for 11, 7 strikeouts. Am I phased by a string of 3 bad games for Meadows? No; he’s still my 3rd favorite prospect behind Benintendi and Moncada. But it’s definitely something to keep an eye on next week.

Brent Honeywell – 6 IP, 2 ER, 12 strikeouts, 3 hits, 1 BB. My personal 3rd favorite pitching prospect. Absolutely dominated an admittedly underwhelming Biloxi team, but 12 strikeouts is sexy regardless. Excited to watch next weeks start.

Bradley Zimmer – 5 for 13, 2 doubles, 2 triples, 1 stolen base. Another one of MiLBs better power/speed combos comes out hot with 4 XBH. We could see a promotion soon.

Michael Kopech – 4.1 IP, 2 ER, 10 strikeouts, 3 hits, 2 BB. Unfortunately didn’t catch any of this start, but the stat line is great. The 5/1 K/BB is especially encouraging from a prospect with control issues.

Josh Hader – 5 IP, 5 BB. And this is what you don’t want from a prospect with control issues. Hader pitched well regardless, letting up just one hit and no runs.

Franklin Barreto – 8 for 14, 2 HR, 1 triple. I like Barreto a lot, even though his stock seems to be down around the industry over the past year or two. I still think he’s a candidate to be called up mid year and be a 20/20 shortstop at his peak.

Matt Chapman – 0 for 7, 6 strikeouts. Not so great start for another A’s prospect, who landed himself on the DL with a left wrist injury after a horrendous first 7 AB. Chapman’s power/defense figure to be enough to make him a solid third baseman in the MLB, so I’m not incredibly concerned with the 6 strikeouts.

Brandon Woodruff – 6.1 IP, 0 ER, 5 H, 0 BB, 4 K. Woodruff picked up in AAA right where he left off last season. Should Hader’s control problems continue to be a problem, Woodruff should be the first in line to help the Brewers rotation this season if they need it (Spoiler: they’re going to need it).

Mickey Moniak – 6 for 14, 3 doubles, 1 SB. Last years 1st overall pick doubled twice Saturday. Extremely advanced for his age, Moniak gets a lot of Christian Yelich comps, which I’m a huge fan of. I’m increasingly more excited to watch how he handles A ball this season.

Justin Dunn – 4 IP, 3 ER, 5 BB, 0 K. A very weird start for Dunn, who had 35/10 K/BB in 30 IP last season. Could A+ be too aggressive of a placement? Dunns next start will be very telling.


Noteworthy starters for Sunday 4/9:

Riley Pint, Tyler Beede, Ian Anderson, Franklin Perez, Dakota Hudson, Oscar de la Cruz


Sunday Update:

Pint – 4 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K

Beede – 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Anderson – 4.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 8 K

Perez – 5.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K

Hudson – 5.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 7 K

De la Cruz – 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K

One other thing I’d like to say is always that newer computer system operating systems tend to allow a lot more memory to be used, but they as well demand more ram simply to function. If your computer cannot handle a lot more memory and the newest software program requires that memory increase, it can be the time to buy a new Laptop. Thanks”
