Vaun Brown, Moises Gomez Finish Season Among MiLB Kings



With the close of last night's Triple-A games, all minor league statistics are official for 2022. The only thing left is to crown a Triple-A champion, which will happen this coming weekend in Las Vegas, where Durham, Nashville, Reno and El Paso will duke it out for the title.

The Giants' Vaun Brown won the overall batting title by hitting .346 across three levels and finishing in Double-A. The 24-year-old has been one of the best stories in the minor leagues as he hit his way from obscurity to prominence. Brown's 1.060 OPS was also the best in the minors.

The Cardinals' Moises Gomez, a longtime Rays prospect whom St. Louis plucked in minor league free agency, led the minors with 38 home runs, besting the Cubs' Alexander Canario by two.

The Cubs' Matt Mervis' outstanding year is also reflected on these leaderboards. The Duke alum mashed all season, leading MiLB in extra-base hits (78) and RBIs (119), while finishing among the elite in a host of other categories.

On the pitching side, Dodgers breakout prospect Gavin Stone took home the ERA title with a sparkling 1.48 mark, besting the Cubs' Luis Devers by 0.43. D-backs righthander Brandon Pfaadt blew away the field in the strikeout race, where his 218 punchouts topped Giants lefty Kyle Harrison by 32.
