Baseball America Prospect Report -- May 21, 2019

Rays prospect Ronaldo Hernandez (Photo by Mike Janes/Four Seam Images)

Domingo Leyba, 2B, Diamondbacks. Leyba had three hits in five at-bats for Triple-A Reno, driving in two runs while coming around to score four times. The second baseman fell a triple short of the cycle, smacking a double and a solo home run with two outs in the second inning. Arizona’s No. 24 prospect has been a bit inconsistent as of late, collecting two multi-hit performances in his previous five games, yet went hitless during the other three. Monday's game between Reno and Tacoma will go down as one of the more memorable we'll see all year. 

Ronaldo Hernandez, C, Rays. Hernandez tied his season high with four RBIs for high Class A Charlotte. The backstop had a single and cranked a three-run home run in the seventh inning. The Rays’ No. 4 prospect picked right up where he left off after seeing his eight-game hitting streak snapped on Saturday against Clearwater. Hernandez is known for having value on both sides of the ball, and his offensive outburst has been a much welcomed sight after batting .196/.220/.268 during the month of April.

Casey Mize, RHP, Tigers. Mize looked more like himself on Monday, allowing just three hits in six innings for Double-A Erie. Mize collected six strike outs and retired the last seven batters he faced before making his exit. After showing early dominance of the Eastern League, the righthander had been tagged for 13 hits and six earned runs across 10 and two-thirds innings his previous two starts.

Anthony Kay, LHP, Mets. Kay was outstanding once again for Double-A Binghamton, tossing seven hitless innings while allowing just one walk in the sixth inning. The Mets’ No. 5 prospect struck out seven batters while needing 88 pitches to make it through the outing. It was the third consecutive start where Kay has tossed at least 7 innings, allowing just one earned run across that span.

Josh Naylor, LF, Padres. Naylor had a three-hit game for Triple-A El Paso. The outfielder hit a two-run home run in the first inning, followed by a solo shot in the third inning. The Padres’ No. 9 prospect drove in four runs and came around to score four times as well. Naylor has a nice four-game hit streak going, which includes two three-hit performances and seven RBIs during that span.

Jordan Yamamoto, RHP, Marlins. Miami’s No. 18 prospect was unhittable across seven frames for Double-A Jacksonville. The righthander only walked one batter while striking out four. He managed to get weak contact all game, inducing 10 groundball outs. It was his first start going seven innings, and his fourth start going at least six innings. Yamamoto is adjusting nicely to Double-A competition and should get some starts with Triple-A Norfolk.
