Baseball America Prospect Report — April 20, 2018

Murphy-Sean-1705-Mitchell-1
Sean Murphy

Thursday's Stars

Sean Murphy, C, Athletics. Murphy will be a big league regular if he can hit at all. His defense would make him a useful starter even if he was a below-average hitter with average power. Murphy hit better than that last year with high Class A Stockton, but his production at Double-A Midland (.209/.288/.309) was disconcerting. In a return to Midland, Murphy is back on track. He went 4-for-5 last night with three doubles and is now hitting .409/.458/.795 in 11 games.

Garrett Stubbs, C, Astros. Speaking of catcher's bouncing back offensively, Stubbs is one of the better defensive catchers in the minors as well, although concerns about his slight stature have long followed him. Stubbs went 4-for5 yesterday with Double-A Corpus Christi, raising his averages to .412/.417/.559.

Austin Riley, 3B, Braves. Riley keeps on rolling as he went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles. Riley now has four straight multi-hit games and has six multi-hit games this season in 13 games.

Micker Adolfo, DH, White Sox. Adolfo isn't able to play in the field because of an injured elbow, but it has not affected his hitting. Adolfo has steadily improved his plate discipline over the past two seasons, which is paying off in improved power production. Adolfo can hit mammoth home runs (he hit his third of the season yesterday), but he's also hitting for average (.356/.415/.610).

Keibert Ruiz, C, Dodgers. Ruiz had the fourth four-hit game of his still very young career yesterday.
