Prospect Highlights: Homer From Alen Hanson, Ngoepe Continues to Hit

In game one of Altoona’s doubleheader yesterday, Alen Hanson led off the game with a home run, his first of the season. His bat is just starting to come around with a .282 average in his last nine games and he leads the Eastern League with four triples. Hanson homered eight times last year. Gift Ngoepe continues to hit well, lining an RBI single in game two of the doubleheader. He has a six game hitting streak and an .871 OPS on...

Prospect Highlights: Andrew Lambo Breaks Homerless Drought

Back in late September, Andrew Lambo homered for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the Cincinnati Reds. He then had a couple a-bats with the Pirates, went to Winter ball, took part in Spring Training and played 21 games with Indianapolis without hitting another homer.

Prospect Highlights: Homer From Gift Ngoepe, Hits From Polanco and Lambo

In yesterday’s Prospect Highlights, the focus was the season that Gift Ngoepe is having at the plate. His defense is already Major League ready and his speed will be an asset, but coming into the 2014 season, it looked like his bat could keep him from reaching his big league dreams. He had a tough time in AA last year, then really struggled in the Arizona Fall League. The results are good early on, with Ngoepe drawing 17 walks...

Prospect Highlights: Walk-Off In Indianapolis, Gift Ngoepe Showing Improvements

Today’s prospect highlights include a few things from last night’s Indianapolis game. The video is the highlights of the entire game, so there are some lowlights here as well, such as Jeff Locke giving up some early runs and Daniel Schlereth allowing the go-ahead runs in the seventh inning. The game ends happy for Indianapolis, as Michael Martinez wins it with a walk-off single. Of note with prospects, Gregory Polanco...

Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco With An Outfield Assist

During the first couple weeks of the season, we have seen Gregory Polanco hit for power, hit for average, show off his speed and make a fine defensive play. On Friday night, we got a glimpse of the fifth tool, picking up an outfield assist by throwing out a runner at home plate. It was his third outfield assist of this season and 39th of his career. One other highlight from Friday night’s Indianapolis game. While he isn’t...
