Hello everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Morning Report for Friday, August 10th, 2018. Here are a few tidbits to get your day started.
****Those Jimmy Dean commercials are creepy.
****My main project today is the Detroit Tigers Top 20 prospects for 2018 mid-season review. The next team after that will be the Miami Marlins.
****Request for reillocity: Please run FaBIO numbers for Ronald Bolanos, Chris Paddack, Rogelio Armenteros.
****New York Mets prospect Peter Alonso collected his 100th RBI of the season last night. He’s now hitting .251/.350/.556 since his promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas, heating up after a sluggish start at that level, hitting .316/.368/.705 in his last 23 games.
****Another strong start last night from Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Taylor Widener: seven shutout innings for Double-A Jackson, three hits, zero walks, nine strikeouts. He now has a 2.49 ERA in 119 innings with a 151/36 K/BB.
