Minor League Update

Games of August 16

by Steve Givarz


Hitter of the Day:

Patrick Mazeika, C/1B, New York Mets (Double-A, Binghamton): 3-6, 2 R, 3 2B, 3 RBI, K
Mazeika has shown an ability to hit, it could be a plus tool for him. But the rest of the profile is tough; he has a below-average arm and doesn’t catch well, limiting him behind the plate. He doesn’t have a lot of over-the-fence power either, which makes first base a tougher profile than catcher. Hitters find a way, though.

Pitcher of the Day:

Alec Hansen, RHP, Chicago White Sox (High-A, Winston-Salem): 7 IP, 3 H, R, ER, BB, 11 K
Who wants to redo the 2016 draft? Hansen had a lot of helium heading into the draft, then fell off, landing in the laps of Chicago in the second round. The stuff is coming together. Watch out Double-A, Alec is coming.

Other Notable Performances:

Luis Martinez, RHP, Chicago White Sox (Low-A, Kannapolis): 6 IP, 4 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 10 K
There is a lot to like about Martinez, and while he is relatively old for the league, you can’t dismiss the current results. Lean and wiry, he can still add weight to his body, which could improve his fastball, making it more than a plus offering.
