Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Wednesday, July 19th, 2017. Let’s get to it.

****Yesterday’s Highlights can be found in the Tuesday discussion thread.

COOL STUFF THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY

****Baltimore Orioles catching prospect Chance Sisco went 4-for-5 with four RBI for Triple-A Norfolk. He’s been quite hot lately, hitting .361 over his last 10 games, and is up to .287/.359/.406 on the year. He’s hit just three homers, but 20 doubles stand out.

****Houston Astros outfield prospect Derek Fisher continues to mash, going 4-for-6 with four runs scored and a home run for Triple-A Fresno. He’s up to .302/.372/.590 with 21 homers and 26 doubles.

****San Francisco Giants outfield/first base prospect Chris Shaw went 3-for-6 for Triple-A Sacramento. He’s up to .302/.338/.533 in 182 at-bats since being promoted from Double-A. Given his performance and his pedigree as a 2015 first round pick, it seems to me like he is not getting enough attention. Don’t overlook his bat.

****New York Yankees prospect Miguel Andujar went 3-for-4 for Triple-A Scranton, raising his slash line to .321/.363/.536 in 84 International League at-bats.
