Minor League Ball Gameday: Thursday, May 8

Joey Gallo locked and loaded.

Joey Gallo and Kris Bryant battle to see who can hit a ball further. When that happens, every one but the pitchers win.

Hey everyone, welcome back to the Gameday. We shall cut the chit chat and get down to brass tacks.

When Kris Bryant comes to the plate, it might as well be Hagrid with a tree trunk for a bat. He is an absolute monster at the dish. Last night he terrorized the Birmingham pitching staff with two home runs (numbers seven and eight on the season), his ninth double, four runs scored and six runs driven in. He also walked and struck out once. With this offensive explosion, Bryant raised his already ridiculous slash line to 313/428/600 for a 196 wRC+ and .461 wOBA.

Not to be outdone, Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo thumped a pair of long ball himself, giving him sole possession of the minor league lead with his 11th and 12th homers. Gallo also walked twice, reaching base four of five times up to the plate, and he was caught trying to swipe his fourth bag of the year. His slash line is even better than Bryant's, yet shockingly similar. He's slashing 327/431/745 for a 1.176 OPS, 215 wRC+, and .498 wOBA. He's walked 23 times to 38 strike outs while Bryant has 19 walks and 38 punch outs, and he's also registered two more extra base knocks (19 to 17) than Bryant. Keep in mind Gallo is two years younger while playing in a league only one step below Bryant.

Other top prospects to leave the yard include Joc Pederson (#8), Eric Jagielo (7), Clint Coulter (6), Mookie Betts (5), and Jonathan Schoop (3).

On the hill, Kohl Stewart was the highest ranked pitcher to get a start, coming in at #64 overall and #34 for pitchers. Stewart continues to baffle Midwest League hitters in his full season debut for Cedar Rapids, going five scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.35 and his WHIP to 0.88. He struck out six while allowing two walks, and five hits, inducing three ground out to five fly outs. Jose Berrios (#124 overall) also chucked five scoreless for a Minnesota affiliate, only allowing a single hit for A+ Fort Myers. He walked four and struck out seven, getting six outs on the ground and two in the air. He did unleash one wild pitch, but it didn't matter much as he walked away with the win to move to 2-2 with a 3.30 ERA. Reds breakout star Ben Lively also kept his mojo working in the California League, throwing seven shut out innings for Bakersfield. He uncharacteristically walked a batter (his third in 42.2 innings), struck out six and gave up four base knocks. Eight outs came on the ground while four came through the air as he lowered his already insanely low ERA to 0.63 and his WHIP even lower to 0.61.

Check out the rest of the Top 150 and beyond below as well as our Duels of the Day, probable starters and running injury list. Enjoy!
