No. 35 Wyatt Mills, RHR
TUE:
DNP
2019:
27.2 IP, 32 H, 16 ER, 12 BB, 28 SO, 3 SVS


No. 39 Sam Delaplane, RHR
TUE: DNP
2019: 24 G, 37.1 IP, 23 H, 15 BB, 79 SO, 2 SVS

6.16.2019: Delaplane has faced 20 batters in Double-A and struck out 16 of them. 91-95 mph, sink, life up in zone, short, tight curveball, 55 command, 60 control.

He’s whiffed over 50% of the batters he’s faced this season with a 25% swinging strike rate.


UR Art Warren, RHR
TUE: 1 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
2019: 13 G, 12.2 IP, 10 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 17 SO


UR Donnie Walton, 2B/SS
TUE: 3-4, HR, RBI, BB, SO
2019: .315/.405/.447, 7-2B, 8 HR, 31 BB, 40 SO

I included Walton here because he’s asked about a lot due to strong performance. He’s not ranked for me because he’s 25 and not a regular shortstop in the big leagues. I also don’t buy him as more than a 50-55 grade second baseman.

In addition, I don’t believe the limited power he’s shown this year is projectable and he’s already maxed out physically so there’s not much on which to dream.

I do believe he should be in utiluty conversations, however — the performance isn’t 100% meaningless — right there with Dylan Moore, Tim Lopes and Connor Kopach. So I’d like to see him start playing at least left field some.


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

No. 1 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
TUE: DNP
2019: .316/.398/.595, 15-2B, 3-3B, 13 HR, 34 RBI, 27 BB, 50 SO, 10 SB

Kelenic has been out nearly two weeks with a wrist injury.


No. 2 Logan Gilbert, RHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 62.2 IP, 48 H, 15 ER, 13 BB, 88 SO, 2.40 ERA

6.15.2019: Gilbert threw 64 of 96 pitches for strikes in another strong outing.


No. 12 Cal Raleigh, C
TUE: DNP
2019: .233/.303/.414, 17-2B, 8 HR, 35 RBI, 21 BB, 55 SO

6.17.2019: Raleigh’s homer came as a right-handed batter off Oakland A’s top prospect A.J. Puk.. He also picked up a line-drive single from the right side off A’s No. 2 prospect Jesus Luzardo. Both pitchers are making their second appearances of the year. Both sit 94+ and regularly visit 95-97 mph.

FTR, Luzardo punched out nine in four innings of work in this one.

TUE: DNP
2019: 14 GS, 77 IP, 81 H, 30 ER, 9 BB, 103 SO, 3.51 ERA

TUE: DNP
2019:


UR Daniel Santos, C
TUE: DNP
2019: 2-4, SO


UR Luis Veloz, OF
TUE: 0-1, 3 BB
2019:

You may remember me talking about Veloz 2017-18 and here’s why I did and here’s why I am now.

First of all, he’s 6-4, 185 pounds with a plus arm and some athleticism; good feet, has a bit of quick-twitch.  But he’s also made his way to the states, and that’s sayng something. He’s a right-handed hitter with projectable power who needs to work on the swing in order to unlock it.


DSL Mariners (R)

No. 8 Noelvi Marte, SS
TUE: 1-4, 2B, RBI, 2 SO, SB
2019: .286/.339/.490, 3-2B, 2-3B, HR, 8 RBI, 5 BB, 13 SO, 4 SB

Marte will not be 18 until October, so like with Julio Rodriguez last year Marte is on pace to hit the states for full-season ball in 2020.


UR David Morillo, RHP
TUE: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 SO
2019: 4 G, 11 IP, 6 H, ER, 5 BB, 10 SO
