Monday's Stars

Bryse Wilson, RHP, Braves. Wilson was the surprise spot starter for the Braves on Monday. Given the opportunity, Wilson dominated. He allowed only three hits and three walks in five scoreless innings while striking out five. Wilson is the third 20-year-old pitcher to start for the Braves this year. No other team in the majors this season has had a game started by a pitcher 20 or younger.

Matthew Liberatore, LHP, Rays. Liberatore was once again outstanding for the GCL Rays. Liberatore threw five shutout innings yesterday. He struck out eight and walked no one while allowing three hits. Liberatore lowered his ERA for the season to 0.98 (he does have more unearned runs than earned runs, so his runs allowed average is more than double that). So far, the lefty has given signs the Rays got a steal after he fell in the first round this June.

MacKenzie Gore, LHP, Padres. Gore had a rougher outing yesterday. He allowed six hits and four earned runs in just 3.2 innings as he walked two and struck out four. Gore has had flashed of dominance this year, but he's struggled as well. This was his second rough outing in four August starts and his overall ERA (4.45) is sixth best among Fort Wayne's seven starting pitchers with 10 or more starts.

Nolan Gorman, 3B, Cardinals. While Liberatore has been among the most effective high school first-round pitchers so far, Gorman has been even more impressive as a hitter. He went 2-for-3 yesterday with two home runs, giving him 15 for the season (11 in the Appalachian League and four in the Midwest League).

Wander Franco, SS, Rays. Franco had another monster night, which is normal for the 17-year-old. Franco went 3-for-4 with his 10th home run and his 24th walk. Franco is now hitting .373/.436/.627 for Princeton with only 14 strikeouts in 209 at-bats.
