Here’s how Tuesday went for the top prospects.

West Virginia Power (A) — South Atlantic League

No. 2 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
TUE: 2-4, 2B, HR, SO
2019: .337/.430/.616, 9-2B, 5 HR, 14 RBI, 13 BB, 23 SO, 4 SB

Kelenic is 27 for his last 61 (April 11-30) and has increased his slugging percentage 496 points during that span, including five home runs. The 19-year-old has four long balls in his last four games.

At this stage, Kelenic is must-see TV.

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF
TUE: (IL, wrist)
2019: .355/.429/.452, 3-2B, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 5 SO

No. 7 Logan Gilbert, RHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 19.2 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, 30 SO

No. 17 Damon Casetta-Stubbs, RHS
TUE: 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, BB, 3 SO
2019: 12.1 IP, 7 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 10 SO

Casetta-Stubbs’ second start was another good one. He threw 51 of his 78 pitches for strikes, showed solid-average armside run on a low-90s fastball to go with an average curveball(and slider) and a useful changeup.

Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League

No. 11 Cal Raleigh, C
TUE: 1-5, HR, BB, 3 SO
2019: .221/.308/.383, 4-2B, 4 HR, 15 RBI, 10 BB, 24 SO

No. 23 Joey Gerber, RHP
TUE: DNP
2019: 9 G, 8.1 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 14 SO, 3.24 ERA, 2 SV

Gerber’s walking a few too many batters in 2019 early on but he uses his fastball traditionally and doesn’t overthrow the breaking ball. He’s whiffed 42.4% of the batters he’s faced to counter the spotty control.

UR Ljay Newsome, RHS
TUE: 7 IP, 6 H, ER, 0 BB, 5 SO
2019: 6 GS, 36.2 IP, 27 H, 6 ER, 4 BB, 54 SO

Newsome bounced back from a decent-but-not-great outing to dominate again. He threw 92 pitches, 67 strikes, and worked all quadrants of the zone with his fastball, cutter, curveball and changeup.

UR Jake Haberer, RHR
TUE: 1.1 IP, H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 SO
2019: 9G, 13 IP, 5 H, 5 BB, 23 SO

Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 18.1 IP, 16 H, 7 ER, 8 BB, 27 SO

No. 5 Kyle Lewis, OF
TUE: DNP
2019: .241/.357/.422, 4-2B, 3B, 3 HR, 15 RBI, 14 BB, 28 SO

Lewis is 12-for-36 with a home run and a 7-11 BB/SO ratio in his past 10 games after a mini-slump April 10-17 (3-for-29, 12 SO).

No. 6 Evan White, 1B
TUE: DNP
2019: .214/.292/.282, 3-2B, 4 RBI, 4 BB, 11 SO

White is 1-for-16 since his return from the IL and got the day off Tuesday.

No. 14 Dom Thompson-Williams, OF
TUE: DNP
2019: .260/.363/.416 2B, 3B, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 11 BB, 20 SO, 7 SB

No. 15 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 32 IP, 24 H, 3 ER, 6 BB, 26 SO, 0.84 ERA

No. 18 Wyatt Mills, RHR
TUE:
DNP
2019:
11 IP, 17 H, 11 ER, 6 BB, 9 SO

No. 22 Art Warren, RHP
TUE: DNP
2019: 1-0, 5 SV, 1.04 ERA, 8.2 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, 10 SO

No. 24 Jake Fraley, OF
TUE: DNP
2019: .292/.364/.494, 5-2B, 2-3B, 3 HR, 12 RBI, 9 BB, 22 SO, 7 SB

Fraley’s going to end up in Triple-A Tacoma if he keeps this up, and by ‘this’ I mean the last few days of contact, getting on base and playing defense.

Tacoma Rainiers (AAA)– Pacific Coast League

No. 1 Justus Sheffield, LHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 18.1 IP, 13 H, 8 ER, 14 BB, 11 SO

Sheffield is slated to start Wednesday for Tacoma in Salt Lake, a hitter’s ballpark that is among the more unforgiving in the PCL.

No. 8 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF
TUE: 0-3, SO
2019: .250/.345/.385, 3-2B, 2-3B, 2 HR, 11 RBI, 14 BB, 23 SO

Long played left field Tuesday, the fourth time he’s started there in 2019. He’s started 12 games at third base and seven at second base.

UR David McKay, RHR
TUE: DNP
2019: 14.2 IP, 16 H, 8 BB, 24 SO

McKay has allowed far too many baserunners in 14.2 innings — 26 by way of hit, walk or hit batter — but he’s also fanned 24 of 69 batters for a strikeout rate of 34.7%. McKay is 92-96 with a power curveball and the stuff is playing well in the PCL, even when the command and control are not. He’ll throw big-league pitches this summer.
