Ruben Ibarra crushed two home runs as he continues to just tear the cover off of the ball in Daytona while Jack Rogers had four hits in a Tortugas doubleheader win, Alex McGarry had a big day as Andrew Abbott tossed five shutout innings in Chattanooga’s win, Elly De La Cruz had another big day at the plate in Dayton, and Juniel Querecuto kept his hot hitting going while Cristian Santana extended his hitting streak to 12 games for Louisville.

    Just as a note – usually the Sunday games are the free patreon preview, but with the ACL and DSL not playing on Sunday I’m going to push the freeview to the Tuesday games so all the teams/players have a chance to be included.

    Doug,

    Do we know Owen Holt’s repertoire? He is putting up video game numbers.

    Doug, I know the strikeouts were something that was going to keep McGarry off the mid season top prospect lists while he was in Dayton but if he continues to hit the ball like this in AA then does that change anything even if the strikeouts continue?

    • Doug Gray

      If his strikeout rate in AA is above 25% (it was 34% in Dayton), then no.

      • Doug Gray

        Ibarra’s strikeout rate in Daytona was 25%. If he keeps that, and keeps hitting, he’s in the “good enough” range for me as long as he keeps on hitting well. What that will do for where he would rank depends on a lot of other factors we just can’t know. But once you get above the 25% strikeout rate mark you need to really be bringing some pluses to the table (defense at a premium spot, big time power, etc).

      • Doug Gray

        Of course they would have been. They were both bringing something else plus to the table – Dunn had 80 power, and when he was young he could actually run and field a little bit. Bruce was a 5-tool guy.

        Of course Bruce was in the Majors when he was 21 and had a 22.7% K rate in the minors. Dunn only struck out 18.2% of the time in the minors, and was also in the big leagues when he was 21.

      • Old Big Ed

        MK, believe it or not, Adam Dunn’s career K rate in MiLB was less than 20%. It was never above 30% for the Reds, although I am relying on my own arithmetic on that.

  4. MBS

    McLain didn’t get a hit, but he had 2 BB with a R scored, he has .353 OBP. Like to see the K’s go down and the BA up but he does get on base.

    Mclain seems to be walking more lately.
    Cruz crushing lately, walks up throughout seems.
    Devlp is Linear all do at a different rate.

  6. Jim t

    Doug , De La Cruz has 10 errors in 56 games. Is he a better fielder then this number indicates?

    • DaveCT

      Not Doug, but I think he may just be a young shortstop in his first full season of ball.

    • Doug Gray

      He’s fine. His fielding percentage at shortstop this year is .945.
