Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Wednesday, November 1st, 2017. Here are some highlights from Tuesday’s slate of Arizona Fall League contests.
*****San Francisco Giants pitching prospect Tyler Beede gave up two unearned runs in four innings for the Scottsdale Scorpions in their 6-2 victory over the Glendale Desert Dogs. Beede gave up just two hits and no walks, fanning four.
*****Atlanta Braves prospect Ronald Acuna continued terrorizing Fall League pitching, going 3-for-5 with a home run in Peoria’s 9-2 victory over Surprise. He’s now hitting .377/.462/.698. Teammates Austin Riley of the Braves system and Franmil Reyes of the San Diego Padres system also homered, as did Texas Rangers outfielder Michael O’Neill in the losing cause.
****The Salt River Rafters defeated the Mesa Solar Sox 8-2, with home runs from Baltimore Orioles prospect Ryan Mountcastle, Milwaukee Brewers prospect Corey Ray, and Miami Marlins farmhand Rodrigo Vigil.
IN THE PIPELINE
The main goal at the moment is the Atlanta Braves Top 20 prospects for 2018 list. I am working on the write-up. I hope to be finished tomorrow.
