Baseball America Prospect Report – May 17, 2018



`Wednesday's Stars

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays, 3B. Guerrero went 4-for-5 yesterday with a home run and two doubles. He raised his averages to .415/.459/.696 and even stole his first base of the season. His .415 average is second-best in the minors. Guerrero is performing at ludicrous levels so regularly that it becomes easy to become numb to just how unusual and special this is. No one hits .415 for a season, but even if his numbers return to the realm of reality, he's producing at a level that simply isn't seen from 19-year-olds in the upper levels of the minors, ever.

Randy Arozarena, OF, Cardinals. Arozarena was the victim of the Cardinals outfield glut a couple of weeks ago. When Tyler O'Neill came back from a brief trip to the big leagues, the Cardinals demoted Arozarena, even though he was hitting a perfectly adequate .260/.368/.329 for Memphis. O'Neill, Oscar Mercado and Adolis Garcia gave Memphis three other everyday outfielders. Arozarena hasn't pouted about his demotion. He went 3-for-4 with a home run and a double yesterday. It was his fourth home run in 12 games with Double-A Springfield and he's now hitting .375/.400/.667 for Springfield.

Kevin Smith, SS, Blue Jays. Smith is simply too good for the Midwest League. He's been stuck there because the Blue Jays have Bo Bichette at Double-A and Logan Warmoth at high Class A, but Smith keeps reminding everyone that as a college shortstop with plenty of pedigree, he's too much for low Class A pitchers. Yesterday he went 2-for-5 with his sixth home run of the season and a double.

Jeter Downs, SS, Reds. Downs went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season. The 19-year-old has an impressive .287/.354/.469 stat line.

Chance Adams, RHP, Yankees. Adams has gotten off to a slow start this season, but he was in complete command yesterday. He struck out 10 while allowing one hit and two walks in seven scoreless innings.

Jordan Romano, RHP, Blue Jays. Romano held Hartford hitless for six scoreless innings. He walked two while striking out five.

Yefry Ramirez, RHP, Orioles. Ramirez threw his best outing of the season yesterday. Ramirez held Indianapolis to one hit over seven scoreless innings. He struck out seven.
