Prospect Highlights: Starling Marte Doubles, Rojas Homers, First Look at Angel Sanchez

The title is “Prospect” Highlights, but occasionally we get some minor league footage of non-prospects in here. Sometimes it’s just players that make great plays like this outstanding catch from Chase d’Arnaud the other day. Other times it’s Major League players on rehab like Starling Marte today. He played his second game with Indianapolis yesterday as he comes back from the concussion he received a...

Prospect Highlights: Walk-Off From Mel Rojas Jr, Elias Diaz Plates Two

Mel Rojas Jr had a nifty piece of hitting in the tenth inning last night, which ended up winning the game for Indianapolis. He squares around to bunt, but as the pitch comes, he pulls the bat back and lines a game-winning double down the third base line. Since being called up to Indianapolis, Rojas has a .287/.373/.381 slash line in 57 games. One problem with his game has always been too many strikeouts and not enough walks. His...

Prospect Highlights: Big Hit From Lambo, Garcia Homers Again

Prospect Highlights: Homer By Willy Garcia, Keon Broxton Steals Home

Willy Garcia hit his 15th homer of the season on Thursday, which leaves him one behind JaCoby Jones for the most among Pirates minor leaguers. Garcia is on an impressive 11-game hit streak that has seen him raise his average to .273 and get his OPS up to the .800 mark. What makes the streak even more impressive is that he is still having his strikeout/plate patience issues. During the streak he has just one walk and 12 strikeouts. On...

Prospect Highlights: Lambo Homer, Mathisen Triple, RBI Hits From Bell and Allie

Four highlights today from three different levels, including a rare West Virginia Power video. Since the Rome Braves are the only team in the SAL that seems to tape games, and only during their home games, we don’t see many Power highlights. We also have a home run from Andrew Lambo from last night and RBI hits from Stetson Allie and Josh Bell. Lambo hit his fifth homer for Indianapolis. Since returning ¬†from his thumb injury,...
