Baseball America Prospect Report -- May 6, 2019

MacKenzie Gore, LHP, Padres. The Padres’ top pitching prospect threw five hitless innings for high Class A Lake Elsinore. The lefthander struck out seven batters on the afternoon, retiring the side in order during each inning except for the fourth where he walked two batters. Gore continues to dominate and appears to have put aside his blister issues that he has dealt with since he was drafted.

Kody Clemens, 2B, Tigers. Clemens had a four-hit game for high Class A Lakeland on Sunday. The Tigers’ No. 12 prospect had two doubles and two home runs while coming around to score three times. Known as an offensive-minded second baseman, Clemens has a natural feel for the game and should be able to stick up the middle.

Lolo Sanchez, OF, Pirates. Sanchez had a four-hit game from the leadoff spot for low Class A Greensboro. The Pirates’ No. 12 prospect had two base knocks, a double and a triple with two RBI and two runs scored. Known as a plus defender in the outfield, Sanchez has to make the most of his plus speed on the base paths in an effort to mask his below-average power.

Jake Wong, RHP, Giants. Wong tossed six hitless innings for his second straight outing, striking out two batters without a walk for low Class A Augusta. He was very economical on the mound, needing just 52 pitches to navigate through six innings of work. The Giants’ No. 7 prospect features a three-pitch mix highlighted by a mid-90’s fastball and curveball that flashes above average. Wong has above-average control and is developing a future average changeup, both of which should help him to reach the ceiling of a mid-rotation arm.

Matt Manning, RHP, Tigers. Manning is showing more dominance at Double-A, adding another seven scoreless innings for the Erie Seawolves on Sunday. The righthander worked around three hits and a walk while striking out nine batters. It was the third start in a row that the Tigers’ No. 2 prospect collected nine strike outs, falling just one short of his season high. Manning is starting to see improvements with his changeup which will nicely compliment his low-to-mid 90’s fastball and future plus curveball.

Jordan Balazovic, RHP, Twins. After being promoted two days earlier, Balazovic spun a gem in his debut for high Class A Fort Myers. The Twins’ No. 20 prospect retired all 21 batters he faced, collecting a season-high 10 strike outs. The righthander was efficient, needing just 15 pitches to get through five of his seven frames. He has worked to maintain a repeatable delivery and has vastly improved his control over the past two seasons, making a ceiling of a mid-rotation starter within reach.
