Tuesday's top prospect performers

June 9th, 2021

Here's a look at Tuesday's top Minor League performers from each team's Top 30 Prospects list:

Royals: Bobby Witt Jr. (MLB No. 7), Double-A Northwest Arkansas
Witt fell a double shy of the cycle Tuesday, but his night will be remembered for something different. Already with a home run under his belt for the second consecutive game, the 20-year-old appeared to have notched his second multi-homer game of the season. However, upon reaching home, Witt’s patented skip caused him to miss the plate, resulting in his round tripper being wiped off the board. He was awarded a triple instead. Even with the unusual occurrence, the second overall pick in 2019 continued his comeback from a poor start. Witt’s second three-hit performance in seven games lifted his slash line to .254/.333/.544 with 11 home runs and 17 RBIs. Royals prospects stats »

Orioles: Grayson Rodriguez, RHP (MLB No. 21), Double-A Bowie
Rodriguez continues to be a model of consistent excellence for Bowie. The 21-year-old blanked Binghamton on two hits over five innings, the seventh consecutive start in which he’s allowed one or fewer runs. Rodriguez walked two, struck out six and lowered his ERA to 0.90 during his 71-pitch outing. The 11th overall pick in 2018 struck out the side in the opening frame and got out of a two-on, one-out jam by inducing a double play in the fourth. While the five punchouts equaled a season low for Rodriguez, his 53 strikeouts are second in the Minors. Orioles prospects stats »

Indians: Nolan Jones, 3B (MLB No. 29), Triple-A Columbus
Brayan Rocchio, 2B (No. 7), High-A Lake County
Jones snapped out of a 2-for-24 funk with the second three-double game of his career and first since 2017. The three hits were a season high for the 23-year-old, who has struggled in the first month of the season -- his first in Triple-A. Jones’ second double drove in a run, helping Lake County erase an early three-run deficit. The Pennsylvania native is batting .194/.322/.316 with nine doubles, a homer and 11 RBIs in 29 games.

Rocchio homered for the second time in four games and fell a triple shy of the cycle in his best offensive output of the season. The 20-year-old tied the game with an RBI double in the second and slugged his fourth round tripper of the season in the ninth to cap Lake County’s scoring. Rocchio has gone 12-for-38 while hitting safely in eight of nine to improve his slash line to .241/.285/.411 with 10 extra-base hits and 12 RBIs in 26 games. Indians prospects stats »

Padres: Luis Campusano, C (MLB No. 34), Triple-A El Paso
Campusano fell a triple shy of the cycle and walked during his third three-hit performance in 10 games to power El Paso’s offense. The 22-year-old’s second homer of the year was his first since May 8, a span of 21 games. Campusano is batting .237/.324/.381 with 10 extra-base hits and 11 RBIs in 28 Triple-A contests. The backstop opened the year in the Majors and went 3-for-34. Padres prospects stats »

Phillies: Bryson Stott, SS (No. 2), Double-A Reading
Stott ended a six-game homerless drought with a pair of long balls as part of a 3-for-4 performance in his first home game with Reading. The 23-year-old also doubled and drove in a season-high three runs to snap a 2-for-17 start to his Double-A tenure. Stott was promoted to Reading on June 1 after batting .288 with a 1.001 OPS in 22 games with High-A Jersey Shore. The 14th overall pick in 2019 is batting .276/.432/.553 with six homers, five doubles and 14 RBIs overall. Phillies prospects stats »

Astros: Pedro León, OF/SS (No. 2), Double-A Corpus Christi
The second-ranked Astros prospect posted his fifth multi-hit game and first multi-homer effort of the season. León led off the second inning with a laser to left-center that screamed out of the park in a hurry. In the seventh, the 23-year-old launched a two-run shot to the same spot. The performance doubled León's dinger total to four on the year, and he has amassed 16 RBIs and 15 runs scored over 26 games. Astros prospects stats »

Royals: Nick Pratto, 1B (No. 9), Double-A Northwest Arkansas
Pratto’s 10th home run highlighted a three-hit, four-RBI performance to help Witt pace Northwest Arkansas’ victory. The 22-year-old snapped a third-inning tie with a three-run blast and drove in what proved to be the decisive run with a single in the seventh. Beginning with his three-homer, four-hit performance on May 21, Pratto has raised his average 120 points by hitting safely in 13 of 15 games. The Huntington Beach, Calif., native is batting .320 with a 1.176 OPS, 17 extra-base hits and 22 RBIs. Royals prospects stats »

Rangers: Sherten Apostel, INF (No. 9), Double-A Frisco
The ninth-ranked Rangers prospect produced his first three-hit night of the year -- hammering a dinger and notching a pair of base knocks. Apostel lifted a sacrifice fly to right to get Frisco on the board in the second, crushed a 2-0 offering for a solo shot to center in the fourth, lined a ball off the pitcher for a base hit in the sixth and found a hole on the right side of the infield for an RBI single in the eighth. The 22-year-old has hit safely in three straight games and has two homers, 10 RBIs and six runs scored on the year. Rangers prospects stats »

D-backs: Dominic Fletcher, OF (No. 15), Double-A Amarillo
Fletcher continued his hot-hitting ways for Amarillo, homering, doubling and driving in a career-high four runs. The 23-year-old walked twice to give him as many free passes (five) in his previous four games as he had in his first 22. Fletcher blasted a solo homer in the sixth and plated three runs with a bases-loaded double an inning later. The California native is hitting .400 (8-for-20) with four RBIs in June after driving in six runs last month. D-backs prospects stats »

Marlins: Eury Perez, RHP (No. 25), Low-A Jupiter
Although he surrendered a pair of unearned runs, Perez has not allowed an earned run in three starts dating back to May 18. The right-hander tied his career high with eight strikeouts and surrendered two hits and no walks during his 66-pitch outing. Perez has struck out 30 in 21 innings and owns a 0.86 ERA in the first six starts of his professional career. Marlins prospects stats »
