Baseball America Prospect Report -- May 3, 2019

Vidal Brujan, SS/2B, Rays. Brujan continues to stand out in a stacked Rays’ farm system. He had a three-hit game for high Class A Charlotte, collecting a single, double and triple. The Rays’ No. 7 prospect has started to play more shortstop this season after having played mostly second base during his time in the lower minors. 

Shed Long, 2B, Mariners. Long had a good night at the plate, hitting a double and a home run in five at-bats. The Mariners’ No. 9 prospect has always been known as a bat-first player, but could play plausible enough defense to be the future second baseman for the organization.

Joey Wentz, LHP, Braves. After giving up eight runs in his previous start, Wentz tossed seven scoreless innings for Double-A Mississippi. The lefthander allowed just one hit and a walk while striking out five batters. The Braves’ No. 12 prospect got in a grove rather quickly, retiring the first 18 batters he faced. Wentz has mid-rotation starter upside and features a three-pitch mix with a plus changeup.

Rylan Bannon, 3B, Orioles. Bannon had a four-hit game for Double-A Bowie in five at-bats with two runs scored. The Orioles' No. 23 prospect homered to left center field to open up the scoring. Bannon tends to do well on pitches down in the strike zone and has an advanced approach at the plate, but his defensively-limited profile leaves a fringe everyday role as his ceiling.

Nick Gordon, SS, Twins. After missing the first month of the season dealing with acute gastritis, Gordon collected three hits in his first game back. The Twins’ No. 15 prospect had three singles while scoring once and driving in a run. He has a line-drive swing and good eye at the plate, but his lack of range and occasional throwing inaccuracies leave him best suited for a future utility position.

Yonathan Daza, OF, Rockies. Daza had a three-hit game from the leadoff spot for Triple-A Albuquerque. He had a double and hit a home run with one out in the third inning. While he doesn’t have much power, the Rockies’ No.19 prospect is their best defensive outfielder in the system and is making the most of his at-bats.

Kyle Tucker, OF, Astros. Tucker had a six-RBI game for Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday. The Astros' No. 2 prospect doubled and hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning. He is now batting .191/.242/.449 with 11 extra-base hits in 89 at-bats. Even with his slow start to the season, Tucker does figure to get some at-bats at the big league level this year.

Domingo Leyba, SS, Diamondbacks. Leyba had four hits including a home run and scored twice for Triple-A Reno. It was his first four-hit game of the season and first multi-hit game since April 26th. Arizona’s No. 24 prospect has a feel to hit but hasn’t shown much power. Defensively, he can handle both positions up the middle and is athletic enough to work as a utility player if he doesn’t produce like an everyday regular with the bat.
