The Daily Farm Report (8/8)

Welcome to the August 8th installment of The Daily Farm Report! We rake the news for each organization’s top farmhands and give you a digest with some commentary for you greedy prospectors to enjoy. Here’s some recent news and highlights:

Trevor Larnach
Twins #6 by MLB Pipeline

Larnach, the Twins 1st round pick in this year’s draft, was bumped up to A-Full Season ball after a strong Rookie ball debut (.300/.405/.467). He has future middle-of-the-order hitter potential for the Twins, and probably has a strong enough arm to stick in RF. He was the college teammate of fellow first-round choice Nick Madrigal.

Elehuris Montero
Cardinals #8 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #200 Overall

As noted above, Montero led the Midwest League in batting average (.321), hits (122), and slugging percentage (.529) this season. He also hit 15 dingers and 28 2B. If you follow the Farm, you know that we identified Montero as a potential breakout hitter early in the season, and he was likely readily available in the majority of dynasty leagues. So pay attention to what we say!

Tyler O’Neill
Cardinals #2 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #77 Ovearll

So O’Neill is on the DL, and he managed to injure his groin by doing something else other than playing baseball? I’d put my money on him injuring it trying to lift too much in the gym. As noted by our own CW, the dude looks like a future WWE superstar. Hopefully, the groin issue doesn’t linger, because O’Neill looked like he was on the verge of becoming an MLB regular with the trade of Tommy Pham to Tampa Bay.

Taylor Trammell
Reds #3 by MLB Pipeline

Uh-oh. I haven’t seen any additional updates on Trammell’s condition, so hopefully, it is just something minor or he was removed for precautionary measures. Stay tuned for more updates. Trammell is one of the fastest rising prospects in baseball.

Adrian Morejon
Padres #6 by MLB Pipeline

Starting to feel like a lost season for Morejon, who has already missed a bunch of time. As of now, the team is saying that this is a minor triceps issue with no UCL involvement. For now, they are going to shut him down completely for 10 days and then build him up using a restricted pitch count. His 2018 season is essentially done after making 14 starts. But he’s still only 19, so Padres fans and dynasty owners will have to practice patience with him.
