Springfield 3 -- Tulsa 0
- Harrison Bader, CF, 1 for 3, R
- Paul DeJong, 3B, 1 for 3, 2B, RBI
- Kurt Heyer, 5 IP, 3 Ks
Springfield split a doubleheader with Tulsa, with both games having the same score. Both games were shortened to 7 innings to accommodate the doubleheader.
While neither Heyer nor Nielsen are very notable prospects, but they both pitched well yesterday, with Heyer exiting the game with a perfect game intact.
A Advanced: Palm Beach 5 -- Lakeland 1
- Casey Turgeon, 3B, 3 for 4, R
- Casey Grayson, 1B, 2 for 3, HR, BB, R, RBI
- Oscar Mercado, SS, 2 for 4, 2B, K, R, RBI, SB
- Vaughn Bryan, LF, 2 for 4, HR, K, R, RBI, SB
- Ian McKinney, 7 IP, 6 Ks, BB, 4 Hits, ER
- Rowan Wick, IP, K
Vaughn Bryan isn't a top prospect, but he got a lot of buzz in 2014 after Jason Parks, then of Baseball Prospectus and now a scout for the Chicago Cubs, highlighted him as a sleeper prospect with incredible tools. He hasn't shown much to live up to that yet, but he won't be 23 until June. That's not young for a player in the Florida State League, but there is still time for him to improve.
After struggling as a hitter at Palm Beach last year, Rowan Wick has returned as a pitcher this season. Sixty-six batters into his first full season as a pitcher, he has 23 strike outs and just six walks. That's not a stellar walk rate, but it's fine, particularly when it's paired with such an impressive K-rate.
Class A: Peoria 5 -- Kane County 3
- Magneuris Sierra, CF, 1 for 5, 2 Ks, 2 RBI, CS
- Edmundo Sosa, SS, 2 for 5, K, R
- Chris Chinea, 1B, 1 for 2, 2B, 2 BBs, R, RBI, CS
Chinea was drafted as a catcher, though he played 1B during his last season at LSU. Right now he's on a ten-game hitting streak. Actually, if you remove his 0-1 pinch hitting appearance, it's a 14-game hitting streak in a season that has him hitting safely in 17 of 20 games. Unfortunately he hasn't hit for much power this year, so his line is a still good but not-overwhelming .306/.359/.403 .
