Let’s wrap up the week with some good prospect talk.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday funday is here! Welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Sunday, July 22nd, 2018. Plenty of baseball today, so let’s get started.

***Yesterday’s Gameday discussion is here.

***Today’s schedule of minor league games and probable starters is here.

Some fun pitchers to watch:

Beau Burrows (Detroit Tigers), Mitch Keller (Pittsburgh Pirates), Kolby Allard (Atlanta Braves), Josiah Gray (Reds), Zack Littell (Minnesota Twins), Sean Reid-Foley (Toronto Blue Jays), Bruce Zimmermann (Braves),

DUEL OF THE DAY: Taylor Hearn (Pirates) vs. Franklyn Kilomé (Phillies)

Also, the enigma that is Huascar Ynoa goes today. This was my first look, and he seems to be progressing, but the secondary stuff is questioned by many. Curious to what our community thinks of him.

***Today’s MLB schedule and list of probable starters is here.

***Scheduled rookie starters for today are Trevor Richards for the Miami Marlins and Brad Keller for the Royals.
