Prospect Highlights: Homer From Jaff Decker, Fine Defense By Indianapolis

Just one video from yesterday’s action. It contains a lot, just not all of it is from actual prospects, but some days you just have to take what you can get. Here is the breakdown of what’s in this video:
1) Gregory Polanco with a strong throw to Tony Sanchez, who seems to bobble it in his glove. Throw beat the runner by plenty, but Sanchez never got the tag down.

2) Home run to center field from Jaff Decker. He showed nice power to straight away center field here. His third homer of the year. Decker has an .861 OPS in his last ten games, .733 on the season.

3) Leaping grab by Robert Andino.

4) Long home run from Matt Hague, who has apparently hit the weights recently. His sixth homer of the year.

5) Great diving stop and then throw to first from Blake Davis to help keep the game 3-2, which is where it ended. The throw obviously wasn’t much here, but Chris McGuiness picked the long hop for the out.

He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site.
