- No. 3 prospect Adam Haseley went 3-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday in a 4-3 Clearwater victory.
- No. 2 prospect Adonis Medina is starting to get it going. He went six scoreless innings allowing no runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five on Tuesday.
- Drew Anderson went 7.2 innings allowing only one run on five hits with no walks while starting for Lehigh Valley on Saturday. He struck out four.
- Cole Irvin continues his great season. He went seven innings allowing one earned run on six hits and one walk. He struck out seven.
- Enyel De Los Santos dazzled once again. He went all seven innings of a shortened game, giving up no runs, four hits, and three walks. He struck out seven. De Los Santos threw 115 pitches, 76 for strikes.
- Cornelius Randolph went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored for Reading on Sunday.
- Although he’s on the disabled list, top prospect Sixto Sanchez is having a very good year. He’s 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA, a WHIP of 1.07, and opponents are hitting .224 against him.
- No. 3 prospect Adam Haseley is hitting .296 with three homers, two triples, 13 doubles and 34 RBI.
- Enyel De Los Santos is 7-3 with a 1.47 ERA. Opponents are hitting a measly .198 against him and his WHIP is 1.01.
- No. 23 prospect Cole Irvin is 8-2 with a 2.50 ERA, has a WHIP of 1.03 and batters are hitting .220 against him.
Heading in the Right Direction
- No. 2 prospect Adonis Medina is starting to get on track. He has his ERA down to 4.27 and he’s going deeper into games.
- No. 4 prospect Mickey Moniak has gotten his average up to .254 and he’s been recording multi-hit games left and right. He still needs to work on his plate discipline as he’s only walked five times and struck out 56.
- Jhailyn Ortiz has been up and down this year, but he’s been better lately. He’s hitting .258 with five homers.
- No. 13 prospect Tom Eshelman is still getting roughed up. His ERA is 7.09 and opponents are hitting .360 against him. His WHIP is 1.91 and he’s averaging a home run allowed every five innings.
- No. 15 prospect Cornelius Randolph continues to struggle. He’s hitting .197 with only one homer. There is some silver lining though as his plate discipline has been good, with his OBP being 84 points higher than his batting average.
