Here’s how Tuesday went for the top prospects.

Class-A West Virginia — South Atlantic League

No. 2 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
TUE: 2-4, 2B, RBI, BB, SO
2019: .328/.438/.478, 7-2B, HR, 9 RBI, 12 BB, 19 SO, 3 SB

Kelenic is 20 for his last 42 with seven extra-base hits. Two scouts that saw Kelenic on the recent road trip were surprised at how strong he’d gotten since the draft.

“I wrote ‘man child’ in my report,” said one scout. “He’s not Aaron Judge but he’s got some beast to him. He’s sound ll the way across the board, but that swing is going to get him to the major leagues, and with more power than most I remember talking to last spring thought was really reasonable to project. Certainly more than I saw in him pre-draft.”

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

Word came out last Friday that additional tests on Rodriguez’s wrist revealed a hairline fracture after the HBP last Friday. He’ll miss 4-6 weeks, which would mean he could be out until June.

No. 7 Logan Gilbert, RHS
TUE: DNP
2019: 14 IP, 5 H, ER, 3 BB, 22 SO

High-A Modesto — California League

No. 11 Cal Raleigh, C

UR Jake Haberer, RHR
TUE: DNP
2019: 5 G, 8.1 IP, 2 H, BB, 12 SO

Waiting for Haberer to start getting some high-leverage opportunities. His stuff and command suggest he’s ready for that challenge.

Double-A Arkansas — Texas League

No. 5 Kyle Lewis, OF
TUE: 0-3, BB, 3 SO
2019: .200/.316/.369, 3-2B, 3B, 2 HR, 11 RBI, 11 BB, 24 SO

Lewis has now struck out in 31.5% of his plate appearances in 2019. Scouts are seeing more chasing the past two weeks.

TUE: DNP (IL)
2019: .308/.367/.385, 2-2B 3 RBI, 2 BB, 8 SO

No. 1 Justus Sheffield, LHP
TUE:
DNP
2019:
4 G,18.1 IP, 13 H, 8 ER, 14 BB, 11 SO, 4 HR

Sheffield is expected to relieve Yusei Kikuchi after an inning or two next time through the Mariners’ rotation, but Sheffield’s command remains a problem. He’s issued a walks+homer rate nearly equal to his innings converted and threw just 27 of 46 pitches for strikes Monday.

No. 8 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF
