Minor League Ball Gameday, August 8

I got your pitch tunnelling right here - David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning prospect watchers. The top 20 reviews are almost done, just one team left now, the San Francisco Giants, which will be posted tomorrow morning. I'm taking some time away from writing this weekend so posting may be lighter than normal starting tomorrow afternoon, although I will still be around to make sure the discussions are going smoothly. We will be fully operational Monday.


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

***Ten strikeouts from Cleveland Indians rookie Danny Salazar yesterday against the Detroit Tigers in his second major league start. Between Double-A, Triple-A, and the majors this year he now has a 146/26 K/BB ratio in 107 innings with just 80 hits allowed. That's like, really good and stuff. That's baseball for you; Trevor Bauer is busy walking the league in Triple-A, while under-the-radar Salazar sneaks up and dominates.

***Excellent game yesterday from Toronto Blue Jays prospect Sean Nolin, with 13 strikeouts over six innings against Bowie. Nolin now has a 2.84 ERA with a 99/34 K/BB in 86 innings on the season.

***Detroit Tigers infield prospect Devon Travis hit two homers and drove in seven yesterday for High-A Lakeland in the Florida State League, where he's now hitting .397/.444/.552 in 29 games since being promoted from Low-A. On the season he's at .365/.434/.505, not bad for a guy who was a 13th round pick. He was an effective player at Florida State University for three years but fell in the draft because he was undersized and not toolsy enough.

***Twelve more strikeouts from Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Tyler Glasnow yesterday, who now has a 140/51 K/BB in 97 innings for Low-A West Virginia. Rolling along.

***Craig Goldstein looks at Max Stassi, the injury-plagued Houston Astros catching prospect who has managed to stay healthy this year and is having a fine season in Double-A.
