Nolan Gorman, 3B, Cardinals. Gorman was one of the top high school bats in the 2018 draft class. He came into the year with lofty expectations and is living up to them so far. Yesterday he hit his first two home runs of the season for low Class A Peoria. He’s now hitting .476/.542/1.000.

Gavin Lux, SS, Dodgers. The Dodgers’ No. 3 prospect had four hits including a solo home run and a triple for Double-A Tulsa. He came around to score four times and walked once.

Carter Kieboom, SS, Nationals. Playing for Triple-A Fresno, Kieboom went 4-for-5 with a double, triple and a stolen base. He did fall a home run short of the cycle, but he did everything else.

Luis Robert, OF, White Sox. The hottest hitter in the minors in the first week of the season has been Robert. The center fielder didn’t homer last year. He hit his fourth in five games last night to go with a double. He was caught stealing. Robert is now hitting .524/.583/1.190.

Myles Straw, SS, Astros. Straw doubled and homered for Triple-A Round Rock. More interestingly he did so while once again playing shortstop. Straw played a little shortstop last season, but this year so far he’s played more games at shortstop than in the outfield. Straw has a plus-plus arm and if he can make shortstop work it adds further versatility for one of the speedier players in the minors.

Kolby Allard, LHP, Braves. The lefthander went 5.2 innings, giving up one unearned run and striking out four for Triple-A Gwinnett. It was an excellent 2019 debut for the Braves No. 14 prospect who is coming off of a very solid 2018 season with Gwinnett. With Mike Foltyniewicz and Mike Soroka back on the mound and Max Fried pitching well in the majors, it does seem that Allard is further from Atlanta than he was early last year however because of the Braves’ excellent pitching depth.
