Minor League Update

Games of August 14

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Nick Gordon, SS, Minnesota Twins (Double-A, Chattanooga): 5-6, 3 R, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, K
While some evaluators could make a case for Royce Lewis ahead of Gordon for top Twins prospect, I wouldn’t go there quite yet. The interesting thing is that Gordon has added more power this year, while drawing more walks, and becoming a more efficient base stealer. While he is moonlighting every now and then at 2B, he still looks like an everyday SS defensively.

Pitcher of the Day:

Kyle Cody, RHP, Texas Rangers (High-A, Down East): 6 2/3 IP, H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 11 K
We have mentioned Cody a lot recently, with boss man Jeffrey Paternostro having the most recent writeup of him in a MMTP.

Other Notable Performances:

Triston McKenzie, RHP, Cleveland Indians (High-A, Lynchburg): 7 IP, 7 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 9 K
Speaking of being mentioned a lot, McKenzie has been splashed on these pages a lot this year, with nearly all of it in the string-bean’s good efforts.
