Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 2 Logan Gilbert, RHS (22)
THU: DNP
2019: 90.1 IP, 63 H, 18 ER, 20 BB, 117 SO, 1.79 ERA

7.17.2019: Gilbert had good stuff, and while he wasn’t at his sharpest it was a strong showing in his Double-A debut. He threew 53 of 84 pitches for strikes and induced 13 swings and misses (15.5%).


No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS (23)
THU: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 SO
2019: 88.1 IP, 82 H, 34 ER, 26 BB, 108 SO

Dunn again was good, throwing 58 of 87 pitches for strikes. His command wasn’t crisp, however, and he’s still not using the changeup much, which is a concern for prospect with starting potential.


No. 5 Justus Sheffield, LHS (23)

2019: 94 IP, 90 H, 49 BB, 88 SO


No. 9 Kyle Lewis, OF (24)

2019: .302/.400/.432, 10-2B, 3B, 10 HR, 46 BB, 50 SO, 8 SB


Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League (All-Star Break)

No. 1 Jarred Kelenic, OF (20)
THU: DNP
2019: .288/.370/.535, 21-2B, 4-3B, 15 HR, 43 RBI, 37 BB, 76 SO, 13 SB

Kelenic sat out his third straight game since leaving the contest Monday at home after injuring his leg on a double. He’s fine.


No. 40 Raymond Kerr, LHP (24)
THU: DNP
2019: 23 G, 10 GS, 72.2 IP, 69 H, 37 BB, 63 SO

Kerr is due a promotion. He’s been nasty in relief, having not allowed an earned run in his last 14 2/3 innings. Dominant.


West Virginia Power (A) — South Atlantic League (All-Star Break)

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF (18)
THU: 0-4, 4 SO
2019: .294/.374/.472, 11-2B, 6 HR, 28 RBI, 13 BB, 45 SO

2019: .344/.436/.581, 11-2B, 3B, 3 HR, 20 RBI, 11 BB, 19 SO


UR Josias De Los Santos, RHP (19)
THU: DNP
2019: 13 G, 8 GS, 58 IP, 61 H, 24 BB, 47 SO


Everett SquaSox (SS-A) — Northwest League

No. 6 George Kirby, RHS (21)
THU: 2 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
2019: 2 GS, 4 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO

I was in attendance for Kirby’s second pro start and from his pre-game bullpen through his 21 pitches (13 strikes) in the game and the postgame bully, it was easy to see some things not as noticeable in his time at Elon via video.

He pitches primarily from the first-base side of the slab and creates deception with the arm slot and by keeping his front shoulder closed until the arm is ready to explode through release. He got some gloveside run on the fastball away to RHBs in this game and hit the edges for called strikes a few times.

He didn’t throw a lot of offspeed stuff, but didn’t have to, either.

The heater hit 96 mph and sat 92-94. His delivery was clean and consistent. Kirby has a terrific foundation of command mechanics, present velocity and feel that suggest a high probability starter with perhaos No. 2 upside.
