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 need Winn to get acclimated to the majors earlier than heading into 2024 as a result of I need 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 p.c strikeout fee over his final 42 video games. He has 12 residence 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 troublesome class yearly, however 2023 appears like a brand new degree of win-difficulty to me. I’ve appreciated Lopez for a very long time, and he’s an important match for the steal-happy, pitch-clock period as a result of he holds runners and induces weak contact, which is extra useful this 12 months as onerous 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 had been doing service math.
4. Orioles OF Heston Kjerstad | 24 | AAA
The group nonetheless has Aaron Hicks and Ryan O’Hearn within the lineup most nights, and so they’re each nonetheless hitting, however Kjerstad is slashing .339/.420/.576 with an 18.6 p.c strikeout fee in 31 Triple-A video games and has no actual cause to stay on the degree.
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 them as a result of he may back-foot the pitch for punch-outs in two-strike counts.
6. Reds RHP Connor Phillips | 22 | AAA
Fired seven shutout innings with eleven strikeouts Friday night time in opposition to Cleveland, a fairly stable 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 believed we’d see some recent blood when the group 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 residence 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 might discover himself in an on a regular basis alternative in a single day. He’s slashing .299/.367/.540 with 5 residence runs over the past month (22 video games).
10. Mets SS Ronny Mauricio | 22 | AAA
I dunno. Once 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 had 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 huge leagues. Then again, Muzziotti’s hitting .341 with 21 steals and simply 44 strikeouts (13.2 p.c) 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 in all these guys is taking part in effectively in a corporation preventing for post-season positioning, however every might in all probability use a couple of weeks in Triple-A. Could be a daring technique to put them on a path to make the playoff roster.
Thanks for studying!
