Prospect Report: Drey Jameson Dazzles In Big League Debut



Drey Jameson, RHP, D-Backs: The D-Backs No. 8 prospect debuted against the Padres last night at Chase Field. He tossed seven scoreless frames on 90 pitches, allowing two hits and a walk with five strikeouts. Jameson mixed his mid-to-high-90s four-seamer with a sinker, slider and changeup, generating eight whiffs and 10 groundouts. Jameson was in control from start to finish, as he attacked the zone, mixed up his secondaries in two-strike counts and generated lots of groundball contact.

Mason Auer, OF, Rays: The Rays outfield prospect went 3-for-5 with a home run and a stolen base from the leadoff spot in Bowling Green’s 10-1 rout of Rome to even its series with the Braves. Auer is a standout athlete with a combination of plus speed, contact, approach and impact at the plate. Auer finished the season with a .290/.372/.487 line and 48 extra-base hits across 115 games split between both levels of Class A.

Tink Hence, RHP, Cardinals: In game 2 of Palm Beach’s playoff tilt with St. Lucie, the Cardinals could not avoid the sweep despite four strong innings from Hence. The righthander struck out three, allowed two hits and no walks and landed 36 of his 57 pitches for strikes. Hence ended his season on a high note with his 11th scoreless outing of 2022. He finished the year with 84 strikeouts to 15 walks over 56.1 innings of work. 

Hunter Goodman, C, Rockies: The minor league home run leader held his lead heading into the final weekend, with his second home run in as many nights. Goodman went 3-for-5 with two runs driven in and a stolen base on Thursday night in Binghamton. Goodman’s home run total stands at 36 for the season, leading the Cardinals' Moisés Gomez by two. The former Memphis standout has enjoyed a notable full-season debut in 2022, rising three levels before the end of the campaign.

Coby Mayo, 3B, Orioles: It was a big night at the plate for Mayo as he went 2-for-4 with six runs driven in. His grand slam in the fourth provided a sizable cushion on top of a two-run lead. While it’s been an up-and-down season for Mayo, he has surpassed the 20-home run threshold in his first full professional season and reached the Double-A level before the age of 21.

Logan O’Hoppe, C, Angels: The Angels top prospect continued to rake with Double-A Rocket City, with a 3-for-4 performance on Thursday. O'Hoppe raised his line with the Trash Pandas to a robust .315/.484/.707 across 27 games played. He homered off of Jared Kelley in the fourth, his 26th home run of the season and 11th in his short time with Rocket City to add to his breakout campaign.
