His 5th HR of the year. The power seems to be legitimate. If he can keep the strikeouts in check and/or takes a few more walks, he has a chance to be real good prospect. Still real far away though.
Seems to be a recurring theme with a lot of Sox prospects.

It's a recurring theme with many prospects period.

Does anyone know if Dayan is playing in the outfield this year?

The Knights website lists him as a 3B and BA doesn't state a position. I can't find a games played by position option anywhere.

Baseball Reference. Look under minors fielding for the appropriate year.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/mi...d=vicied001day

15 games in RF, 1 at DH.

Trayce hit his 6th HR of the season tonight. Also was HBP. Game still in progress.

Thanks! I don't know why I always forget that baseball-reference has the minors covered as well.

I guess we'll need to give him another 30-40 games before we can get a decent report on how he's doing in RF.

Hey DirtySox,

As I know you follow the minors pretty closely and I value your opinion, might there be a few "surprises" in the system? In looking at the small sample size thus far, what about the following guys?:

Tyler Kuhn - Seems like a good hitter but lacks power, esp. for 1st
Brandon Short
Brady Shoemaker
Trayce Thompson
Drew Lee
Ross Wilson

Do any of them project to be anything more than career minor leaguers?

How is Blanke defensively? Also, I noticed he has 7 HRs already, so he must have some pop. It'd be nice to have another prospect at C since I'm not sure Flowers is ever going to pan out.

He actually only has 2 HRs. He does have 7 doubles though. Supposedly he looked a solid defender in rookie ball, but I have yet to read any scouting reports regarding his defense this year. Blanke is a bit older than his competition in Kanny, but he indeed a legitimate prospect. If he keeps hitting he should be in W-S soon.

I will point you to this, as I pretty much agree with all the assessments within.

And you can read about Drew Lee here.

As for your list, the only prospect I really like is Thompson. Not on your list though are Blanke, and Jose Martinez. I'm high on both of them. Addison Reed and Jacob Petricka should also be followed if they weren't already. Some of the others are worth keeping tabs on, but their performance doesn't tell me much until they face better competition. I would expand my thoughts, but I'm knee deep in term paper and finals studying at the moment.

Default Catching up

Trying to catch up on the minor league team AAA. Jhonny Nunez..his numbers look sick. 1 walk, 17 Ks. Keep that up and we could use in our bullpen.

Bruney looking ok? His stats look decent. Well, except for the walks. heehee.

He will be heading to Kannapolis.

One can read about him here via Halo's Heaven.

I read the Halo's report you attached and looked at his stats from last year. Looks like this guy has uncanny control. Why would the Angels give up on his so soon? He's only 22 and year removed from TJ surgery.

Dayan up to .303/.336/.486

Might as well promote him to replace Juan. The defense will still be ****ty, but at least Viciedo will hit some.

I've been saying this too, just DFA Juan.
