Prospect Report: Francisco Alvarez Homers Again



Sunday's Prospect Performers

Francisco Alvarez, C, Mets: Alvarez’s Triple-A stint has not matched his normally lofty production. With a week and a half to go, he’s hitting .200/.345/.407 in 168 plate appearances. But he did have an excellent Sunday, going 2-for-4 with his 26th home run of the season.

Brandon Pfaadt, RHP, D-Backs: For the seventh time in nine Triple-A starts, D-backs prospect Brandon Pfaadt allowed two or fewer runs. On Sunday he allowed nine hits, but only two runs and one walk while striking out six. That means Pfaadt has a 2.57 ERA for Reno with likely one start to go in his season. As we mentioned last week, posting an ERA like that in Reno is hard to fathom. But here’s a better way to explain it.

Here’s a look at the distribution of ERA for every Reno starter who made nine or more starts in a season. As you may notice, there have been more pitchers with an ERA over 8.00 than there have been those with an ERA under 3.00. Pfaadt, Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer are the only three to post a sub-3.00 ERA.

Jackson Merrill, SS, Padres: Merrill went 4-for-5 with three doubles to help Lake Elsinore to a 13-2 win over Fresno in the first game of the California League championship series.

Evan Carter, OF, Rangers: The Rangers promoted Carter to Double-A just a week ago to get him an extra week of games after the Class A seasons ended. It was an excellent week. Carter went 2-for-5 with his first Double-A home run on Sunday. Overall he hit .429/.536/.714 in his six games at Frisco.
