Prospect Of The Day

Madison Bumgarner (Giants) had been slightly hittable of late. The Augusta lefthander worked seven shutout innings, holding Hagerstown to just four hits. As though his strikeout/walk ratio needed improvement, Bumgarner struck out a season-high 11 and did not issue a free pass. His ERA is down to 1.79 and Bumgarner is 9-3 on the season.

Prospect Nuggets

Caleb Gindl (Brewers) continued to show his knack for doubles. The West Virginia centerfielder had two of them on his way to a 4-for-5 day and two RBIs. . . Freddie Freeman (Braves) also has been an extra-base machine. After hitting three doubles on Monday, Freeman went 2-for-3 with a his 15th home run and two RBIs. The two hits stretched his hitting streak to 15 games. . .   Shortstop Jordy Mercer (Pirates) is hitting just .214 with Hickory, but he’s hitting .308 over his last 10 games. He went 3-for-5 with an RBI. . .  Jairo Heredia (Yankees), a righthander for Charleston, shut out Kannapolis for six innings and struck out six. He lowered his ERA to 2.53 and won his fifth game.

What To Watch For Today

Bryan Evans (Marlins) will make his first start in the South Atlantic League. The righthander pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings on July 12 in his first appearance since being promoted from the New York-Penn League.
