Minor League Ball Gameday, July 30

Good afternoon prospect watchers. I assume there will be lots to talk about and write about over the next 36 hours. In the meantime, here is your daily discussion thread.

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

***Two homers yesterday for Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Corey Seager, now up to .308/.383/.517 for Low-A Great Lakes in the Midwest League.

***Texas Rangers outfield prospect Jairo Beras has a broken hamate bone and is out for the year. He was hitting .250/.314/.438 in 17 games in the Arizona Rookie League after cashing his $4,500,000 check.

***Seven strong innings for Cardinals prospect Alexander Reyes down in the Appy League for Johnson City last night, six hits, one run, two walks, eight strikeouts. He now has a 3.38 ERA with a 41/16 K/BB ratio in 32 innings. Someone asked me yesterday what I thought of him. The Cardinals spent $950,000 on him in December. Simple enough question. . .I like him. Everything I've heard about his arm is positive. . .low 90s, promising curveball and changeup, loose arm. Sabermetrically, I'd like to see fewer walks, but it is so early in his career that is just nitpicking.

***Alex Kienholz looks at Marlins rookie Jose Fernandez and examines how other 20-year-old major league pitchers have fared (since 1970) in their careers.

***Craig Goldstein looks at Rockies prospect Trevor Story. The good news: his glove looks fine! The bad news. . .don't ask about his bat.
