Graduated from Prospect Information: Stash Record Quantity 7: Baltimore Stacks Backups:
Christian Encarnacion-Strand, Colton Cowser, Sal Frelick, Dominic Canzone, Tyler Soderstrom.
1. Cardinals SS Masyn Winn | 21 | AAA
If I’m the Cardinals, I would like Winn to get acclimated to the majors earlier than heading into 2024 as a result of I would like him to be my opening day shortstop. He’s been enhancing all year long and has been elite for some time now, slashing .328/.390/.533 with a 12.5 % strikeout fee over his final 42 video games. He has 12 dwelling runs and 16 stolen bases in 87 video games on the season and even leads the league in hits with 106.
2. Rays LHP Jacob Lopez | 25 | AAA
Wins is a tough class yearly, however 2023 appears like a brand new stage of win-difficulty to me. I’ve favored Lopez for a very long time, and he’s a terrific match for the steal-happy, pitch-clock period as a result of he holds runners and induces weak contact, which is extra priceless this yr as laborious grounders are getting by way of the infields once more.
3. Tigers 3B Colt Keith | 21 | AAA
Would in all probability have the highest spot if I didn’t suspect the Tigers have been doing service math.
4. Orioles OF Heston Kjerstad | 24 | AAA
The crew nonetheless has Aaron Hicks and Ryan O’Hearn within the lineup most nights, they usually’re each nonetheless hitting, however Kjerstad is slashing .339/.420/.576 with an 18.6 % strikeout fee in 31 Triple-A video games and has no actual purpose to stay on the stage.
5. Giants RHP Mason Black | 23 | AAA
It’s a two-pitch look, but when his command is on level, Black will get an additional pitch or two out of the fastball/slider combo as a result of he can work each in and out, up and down. Stealing the back-door slider strike from lefties, particularly, provides him an opportunity in opposition to lefties as a result of he can back-foot it, too.
6. Reds RHP Connor Phillips | 22 | AAA
Fired seven shutout innings with eleven strikeouts Friday night time in opposition to Cleveland, a fairly strong lineup as Triple-A teams go. The command is a piece in progress, however Phillips is approaching quick and has nasty sufficient stuff to be successfully wild whereas he refines his craft.
7. Tigers 3B Justyn-Henry Malloy | 24 | AAA
What’s occurring in Detroit? I assumed we’d see some recent blood when the crew stopped wanting that scrub, Jonathan Schoop.
8. Tigers OF Parker Meadows | 23 | AAA
Meadows introduced some steam into the season after a sizzling spring however stumbled early in Triple-A. He has since course-corrected and is slashing .290/.351/.568 with eight dwelling runs over his final 39 video games.
9. Orioles 2B Connor Norby | 23 | AAA
I’ve a hunch that Baltimore isn’t going to do a lot on the deadline, but when they make a transfer or two, Norby may discover himself in an on a regular basis alternative in a single day. He’s slashing .299/.367/.540 with 5 dwelling runs over the past month (22 video games).
10. Mets SS Ronny Mauricio | 22 | AAA
I dunno. After I noticed them on the way in which to Barbenheimer, I attempted to ask Mr. and Mrs. Met if they’d any information on Mauricio’s timeline, however they have been too busy residing for the likes to note me.
11. Phillies OF Simon Muzziotti | 24 | AAA
On the one hand, Muzziotti’s window appears just about closed with Bryce Harper again in motion and Johan Rojas within the large leagues. However, Muzziotti’s hitting .341 with 21 steals and simply 44 strikeouts (13.2 %) on the season.
12. Diamondbacks SS Ryan Bliss | 23 | AAA
Been a tragic first week in Reno, leaving Bliss with a slash line of .120/.241/.160 by way of six video games.
13. Diamondbacks SS Jordan Lawlar | 20 | AA
14. Brewers OF Jackson Chourio | 19 | AA
15. Rangers OF Evan Carter | 20 | AA
Lil three-pack on the way in which out. Each one among these guys is taking part in effectively in a company combating for post-season positioning, however every may in all probability use just a few weeks in Triple-A. Could be a daring technique to put them on a path to make the playoff roster.
Thanks for studying!
