Baseball America Prospect Report – May 30, 2018

austin-meadows-2013-cw

Tuesday's Stars

Austin Meadows, OF, Pirates. Since joining the big league club, Meadows has gone on a tear. Last night he hit his fourth home run and also doubled to raise his averages to .439/.429/.854 (yes, with no walks and a sacrifice fly, Meadows currently has a Mariano Duncan-esque lower OBP than batting average). Meadows has been a slugger in the big leagues, but before he arrived in Pittsburgh, he had posted a roughly .100 isolated slugging percentage and five home runs in 410 at-bats at Triple-A Indianapolis over the past two seasons. Meadows is young, and he's battled injuries, so it's possible that he's taken a big step forward with his power. But Jesse Winker's return to Earth this season is a cautionary tale.

Seuly Matias, OF, Royals. Matias has been one of the highest-ceiling prospects in the Royals system for a couple of years. That ceiling looks a little closer now that he's had a ferocious power surge in the first two months of the season. Matias hit his 14th home run of the season season and also doubled. He's leading the South Atlantic League in home runs and slugging percentage (.625).

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays. Guerrero's season has been so good that last night's 1-for-5 night with a home run could be described as routine.

Bubba Thompson, OF, Rangers. The Rangers have no problems drafting high-ceiling, but high-risk athletic high school bats. Bubba Thompson, last year's first-round pick, is a pick that's paying off. Thompson went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run and a stole base yesterday.

Trevor Stephan, RHP, Yankees. Stephan has been one of the revelations of the 2017 draft class. He's already made it to Double-A. Yesterday he worked 5.2 scoreless innings, allowing two hits, one walk and striking out seven.

Kyle Wright, RHP, Braves. Wright had his best start in Double-A yesterday as he allowed one run in seven innings. Wright allowed three hits and two walks and struck out six.
