The Daily Farm Report (7/14)

Welcome to the July 14th installment of The Daily Farm Report! We rake the news for each organization’s top prospects and give you a digest with some commentary for you greedy prospectors to enjoy. Here’s some recent news and highlights:

Michael Chavis
RedSox #1 by MLB Pipeline

Chavis is making up for lost time after his PED suspension to start the year. He’s only 22, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see him repeat AA for the remainder of the season as he works on getting his swing back. We have to see if he can maintain his game power when he’s off the juice.

J.P. Sportman
Unranked by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #71 Overall

Sportman is a 26-year old Bull Durham prospect who is repeating AA-ball for the 3rd straight year, but he is having a nice season. .289/.336/.465 slash with 8 HR and 15 SB makes him our #71 overall ranked hitter using our roto scoring method.

Phillip Diehl
Unranked by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #26 Overall

Lefty Phillip Diehl gets the promotion to the AA Eastern League’s Trenton Thunder. He’s a reliever, but he’s one worth watching if he continues his dominance at the next level. At A-Advanced ball this season he posted a 14.61 K/9 and 2.22 BB/9 in 25 appearances, converting all 3 of his save attempts and recording 6 holds as well. He posted a 1.50 FIP in the Florida State League.

Brady Puckett
Unranked by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #44 Overall

Puckett was activated off the DL and started for the A-Advanced Jupiter Hammerheads yesterday, working 7 innings and allowing just 1 earned run. He’s an intriguing RHP prospect for the Marlins. He’s huge (6’8″, 220), but has displayed excellent control this year, with BB/9 rates of 0.72 at A-Full Season and 1.20 at A-Advanced. He’s our #44 overall pitching prospect in 2018 thus far using our roto scoring method.

Bryan Reynolds
Pirates #5 by MLB Pipeline

Reynolds underwent surgery for a hamate fracture back in April. He’s worked hard to return to form and has been playing well for Altoona in the AA Eastern League lately. Reynolds came over to Pittsburgh as part of the Andrew McCutchen trade. He’s an advanced college bat out of Vanderbilt, and he’s got the tools to be a 4th OF type with some upside if his power develops (he slugged .462 in A-Advanced ball last season).
