Baseball America Prospect Report – May 2, 2018

Tuesday’s Stars

Mike Soroka, RHP, Braves. Soroka was outstanding in his big league debut. Spotted to a 3-0 lead against Noah Syndergaard and the Mets before he ever stepped on the mound, Soroka spotted his sinker expertly as he limited the Mets to one run on six hits in six innings and picked up his first MLB win.

Justus Sheffield, LHP, Yankees. Sheffield struck out nine in six scoreless innings for Double-A Trenton. Sheffield has been remarkably consistent in piling up strikeouts. He has either eight or nine strikeouts in each of his past four starts.

Dylan Cease, RHP, White Sox. Cease put together what can be considered the best start of his career. The righthander set a career high in innings (7.0) and strikeouts (12) as he held Lynchburg to two hits and no runs. Cease’s previous best start was a five inning, 10-strikeout, one-hit performance pitching for Boise back in 2016.

Brandon Marsh, OF, Angels. Keep an eye on Marsh as one of the potential breakout prospects of 2018. Marsh has impressed scouts with his athleticism and developing power. Marsh hit a pair of home runs yesterday, raising his stat line for low Class A Burlington to .315/.414/.534.

Kevin Kramer, 2B, Pirates. We’re getting to the point where there is a fair debate as to which of the Pirates' two Kevin’s in the middle infield in Triple-A is the better big league prospect. Kevin Kramer went 3-for-5 yesterday with a triple and a home run. The edge as a prospect still probably goes to Indianapolis shortstop Kevin Newman because he is a better shortstop defensively, but where Newman very rarely drives the ball ( a career .377 slugging percentage in the minors), Kramer has shown he’s a better hitter than Newman and he himself can slide over to shortstop in a pinch.

Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, Padres. Tatis has been off to a slow start just like he endured last year, but he has shown signs of pulling out of it. Tatis hit a pair of doubles and a home run yesterday.
