Minor League Ball Gameday, June 30

Tyler Skaggs - Jennifer Stewart

Good afternoon prospect watchers. Let's get down to business.

***I'm adding Jeff Francoeur to the Prospect Retrospective list. Jeff Locke went up this morning and Cole Hamels is on the list. Feel free to make other suggestions as well.

***Yesterday's Minor League Ball Gameday thread.

***Arizona Diamondbacks lefty Tyler Skaggs fanned 13 over 8.1 scoreless innings for Triple-A Reno yesterday, leading the Aces to a 1-0 victory over Sacramento. Skaggs now has a 4.26 ERA with an 87/28 K/BB in 76 innings with 76 hits allowed. With 20 career Triple-A starts under his belt over the last two years, he has a 3.71 ERA with a 132/44 K/BB in 129 innings, quite good numbers considering the Pacific Coast League and Reno environments.

***Kansas City Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer has struggled at times this year for High-A Wilmington in the Carolina League, but he was on his game last night with a two-hit seven-inning complete game shutout against Potomac.He walked two and fanned six. Zimmer has a 5.40 ERA with an 83/30 K/BB in 72 innings, with 68 hits allowed. His K/IP mark is solid and there's nothing wrong with his stuff, but he hasn't shown the same kind of sharp command he demonstrated last spring that helped make him a first round pick. His FIP of 3.65 is considerably better than the ERA, so perhaps he's had some bad luck this year as well.

***Tampa Bay Rays prospect Jake Odorizzi continues to roll along for Triple-A Durham, giving up one run in 6.1 innings yesterday against Columbus, giving up five hits and one walk, fanning seven.

***Astros prospect Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double for Low-A Quad Cities, moving his season line up to .324/.410/.456. He's hitting an amazing .444/.545/.500 this year against left-handed pitching. I'm planning a scouting trip back to Iowa in about three weeks and he needs to cool off before I get there so that he doesn't get promoted too soon.
