Spring Training MLB Prospect Report—March 5, 2021



Mickey Moniak, OF, Phillies – The 2016 No. 1 overall pick cranked two home runs in the Phillies’ 15-0 rout of the Yankees on Thursday. He entered in the sixth inning and promptly sent a Reggie McClain fastball 372 feet over the right field fence in his first at-bat. He came to the plate again in the seventh inning and hit another one even farther, sending Nestor Cortes’ offering 415 feet out to right field.

Jarren Duran, OF, Red Sox — Duran continued his hot start to the spring with a double and a home run in Boston’s 6-3 loss to Baltimore. Hitting in the No. 2 spot, Duran doubled and scored in the first inning to get the Red Sox started and hit a solo shot in the second inning to give them an early 3-0 lead.

Ke'Bryan Hayes, 3B, Pirates — Hayes has picked up right where he left off last year. He went 2-for-3 with an opposite-field RBI triple in the Pirates 6-1 win over the Braves, giving him a .500 average with three-extra base hits in as many games this spring.

Aaron Ashby, LHP, Brewers – Ashby struck out the side in his lone inning of work in the Brewers’ 5-1 loss to the Indians. Most notably, the Brewers No. 8 prospect—who has yet to play above High-A—notched the feat against three big leaguers. Ashby struck out Austin Hedges, Billy Hamilton and Oscar Mercado, getting Hedges and Mercado swinging.

Yu Chang, INF, Indians – The 25-year-old infielder hit two home runs, had three RBIs and walked in his other plate appearance in the Indians’ 5-1 win over the Brewers. Chang victimized a pair of lefties on his longballs, tagging Eric Lauer for a two-run homer in the second inning and getting Clayton Andrews for a solo shot in the fourth.
