Baseball America Prospect Report -- April 24, 2019

Casey Mize, RHP, Tigers. Sending Mize to the Florida State League to begin the season made plenty of sense. Erie is cold in April, and it’s never bad to let a player get comfortable. But Mize is showing he’s better than the league he’s in. Mize tossed eight scoreless innings, allowing only one hit while striking out four. The Tigers’ top prospect didn’t walk a batter. Mize has allowed just one earned run and one walk over his first four starts of the season. He has a 0.34 ERA in four starts.

Wander Franco, SS, Rays. After starting his afternoon with a walk and then getting hit by a pitch, Franco laced three doubles for low Class A Bowling Green. The Rays’ top prospect is now hitting .300/.389/.467 as an 18-year-old.

Lewis Thorpe, LHP, Twins. The Twins’ No. 17 prospect went eight innings for Triple-A Rochester, allowing just one run on three hits. The lefthander collected 12 strikeouts for the second start in a row. Thorpe attacks hitters with a four-pitch mix and has some deception which helps his 88-92 mph fastball play up.

Spencer Howard, RHP, Phillies. The question Howard faced coming into the season was whether his late-season surge was sustainable. So far, so good. Howard spun a gem for high Class A Clearwater, tossing five and two thirds scoreless innings while striking out a career-high 11 batters. The righthander went on a stretch where he retired 11 of 12, seven of which came via strikeout. The Phillies No. 7 prospect has a much improved fastball-slider combo and works in both a changeup and curveball that flash average.

Aaron Ashby, LHP, Brewers. Ashby was untouchable for five innings with low Class A Cedar Rapids. The lefthander struck out 10 batters while throwing 49 of 83 pitches for strikes. The Brewers’ No. 16 prospect rakes in the strikeouts by using his plus curveball and funky delivery to add deception to his pitches.

Oscar Mercado, OF, Indians. Mercado had a four-hit game from the leadoff spot for Triple-A Columbus. The Indians’ No. 16 prospect had a double and home run while scoring and driving in three runs. Mercado is now batting .361/.458/.574 with 10 extra-base hits in 61 at-bats.

Anthony Misiewicz, LHP, Mariners. Misiewicz went the distance for Double-A Arkansas, giving up just six hits over nine innings. More impressively, the lefthander didn’t even walk a batter and collected six strike outs. The Mariners’ No. 26 prospect typically doesn’t go deep into starts and gets batters out with more finesse than power stuff.

Matt Manning, RHP, Tigers. Manning gave up one earned run across six innings for Double-A Erie. The righthander didn’t walk anyone and fanned nine batters. The Tigers’ No. 2 prospect is off to a good start this season, having given up fewer than two earned runs in his first four starts.

Mario Feliciano, C, Brewers. Feliciano fell a triple short of a cycle with his four-hit day for high Class A Carolina. The Brewers’ No. 23 prospect had a base knock, double and home run with three RBI on the day. Feliciano has a feel to hit with some power and profiles behind the plate with an above-average arm.
