Baseball America Prospect Report — May 15, 2018



Monday's Stars

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays. This may seem repetitive, but Guerrero was great again last night. He went 3-for-4 with a home run, raising his batting average to .405, which is fourth best in the minors. And as a reminder, the average Eastern League player is 24 years old. Guerrero is 19.

Griffin Canning, RHP, Angels. Canning began the year having never thrown an official pro pitch. The 2017 second-rounder will leave May having been the starting pitcher in a pair of no-hitters. Just two and a half weeks after he threw the first five innings of a no-hitter, Canning combined with Greg Mahle, Adrian Almeida and Zac Ryan to throw a no-hitter on Monday. Canning threw 4.1 hitless innings, striking out eight while walking two.

Tyler O'Neill, OF, Cardinals. O'Neill hit a pair of home runs on Monday, leaping into second in the minors with 13 home runs.

Frankie Montas, RHP, Athletics. It was a pretty wild day for Montas. Montas worked eight innings for the first time in his now nine-year pro career, allowing two runs and six hits. But he also only struck out two, which is a pretty surprisingly low number for a righthander who almost always piles up strikeouts (he struck out 10 in his previous start).

Taylor Widener, RHP, D-backs. Widener was traded to the D-backs in the three-team trade Brandon Drury/Steven Souza/Anthony Banda trade. And since joining the D-backs, Widener has been missing plenty of bats. Last night wasn't his best night for strikeouts but he did throw six scoreless innings, allowing two hits while striking out four and walking one.
