Prospect Report: Brewers' Misiorowski Dominates Down East



Jacob Misiorowski, RHP, Brewers: When Misiorowski has everything going, he's a near-impossible challenge for hitters. He had everything going on Thursday, and the most the Down East Wood Ducks could muster was a checked-swing hit batsman that served as their only baserunner during the righthanded fireballer's five innings.

He was lifted after five hitless innings, having struck out nine, walked nobody and thoroughly shut down his opposition with a four-pitch mix of a lively fastball that topped out at 101 mph, a sharp curveball he could drop in for called strikes, a sweeper slider that ran away from the barrels of righties and a fading changeup.

The outing marked career-bests for both innings pitched and strikeouts, and brought his season total to 41 strikeouts in 22.2 innings. Put another way: 41 of the 68 outs Misiorowski has recorded have come via the K. Put still another way: He's fanned 41 of the 86 hitters he's faced in 2023. That's a staggering total of 47.6% on the season.

Perhaps more importantly, the outing served as a solid rebound from a rough outing in which he allowed four earned runs and four walks in three innings against Kannapolis a week ago.

"Any time you get hit up a little bit, you feel like you need to throw good that next week," Misiorowski said, "And I think I did that this week."

Misiorowski made pounding the zone a point of emphasis during his between-start work, including honing in on visual targets during each pitch.

The righthander threw 43 of his 63 pitches for strikes on Thursday, good for a rate of 68%. That figure is considerably better than his season average of 61%, which is one of the markers the 2022 second-round pick out of Crowder (Mo.) JC is looking for in order to assess his rate of success this season.

"My command for the zone has gone up tremendously," Misiorowski said. "It's been (with) a lot of help from (pitching coach) Michael O'Neal and some of the guys on my team that have helped me out with just sights and stuff like that.

"Like with the slider, thinking more about just starting it arm side a little bit more and different things like that, just where I'm aiming instead of just middle-middle."

Even on his worst day, Misiorowski boasts some of the best pure stuff in the minor leagues. On a day like Thursday, when he's throwing everything for strikes, opponents don't have much of a chance.

James Wood, OF, Nationals: The prize of Washington's haul for Juan Soto has been excellent this season, and he furthered his reputation on Thursday by collecting three hits against Hudson Valley and falling a double shy of the cycle. The home run was Wood's seventh of the season and second in as many days. Wood's night also continued an impressive stretch. The massive, powerful outfielder has been on base at least once for 27 straight games.

Jackson Holliday, SS, Orioles: Speaking of on-base streaks, Holliday was at it again on Thursday. The 2022 No. 1 overall pick and strong contender for midseason No. 1 overall prospect kept up his scalding season by going 1-for-4 with a walk. Normally, that's not a BAPR-worthy night, but it marked a continuation of a stretch that's beginning to border on Bettsian. Holliday has reached base in all 38 games this season and the last five of last season, bringing his total to 43 straight games. Famously, Betts reached base in 66 consecutive regular season games between 2013 and 2014. All this is a long way of saying that he's very, very good.

Elly De La Cruz, SS, Reds: Just like Holliday, De La Cruz is very, very good and in consideration for the No. 1 overall prospect spot on BA's Midseason Top 100 list. The players' skill sets are different, with De La Cruz easily being the more explosive of the two talented shortstops. Exhibit A: His eighth home run of the season, which was absolutely blasted. The longball, hit off of big leaguer Joey Lucchesi, left the bat at 117.7 mph and traveled an estimated distance of 450 feet. The blast would be the hardest-hit ball in the career of many players. For De La Cruz, it's not even his hardest-hit ball of the month. Someone get this man to Cincinnati, because he's Red hot.

AJ Smith-Shawver, RHP, Braves: Atlanta's top pitching prospect and the youngest player in Triple-A built on his debut at the level on Thursday with a solid start against Durham. The 20-year-old, who started the season in High-A before a two-start cameo in Double-A, punched out eight over seven two-run innings. Smith-Shawver got a dozen swings and misses in 86 pitches, good for a rate of roughly 14%. His fastball peaked at 97 mph. Perhaps the most intriguing part of Smith-Shawver's night was the fact that half of his strikeouts came on his curveball, a pitch he added this spring and did not begin throwing in earnest until fairly recently.

Chase DeLauter, OF, Guardians: You won't find DeLauter's name in an official box score—he's rehabbing in extended spring training—but BA's desert watchdog and ace photographer Bill Mitchell got a glimpse of the Guardians' 2022 first-rounder on Thursday. Facing the Dodgers, DeLauter—who hasn't made his official debut because of a broken left foot—went 2-for-2 and played left field. He finished with a sharp single and a double off the wall. This isn't the first time a broken left foot has derailed DeLauter; a similar injury cut short his draft year at James Madison. Nonetheless, Cleveland was convicted enough by the history it had with the player to pop him at No. 16 overall.
