Baseball America Prospect Report -- September 13, 2019



Ka’ai Tom, LF, Indians. Tom was once again the catalyst from the leadoff spot for Triple-A Columbus as they beat Durham and won the International League championship for the eleventh time in team history. Tom laced a double in the sixth inning and came around to score on a Bradley Zimmer three-run homer. He then smacked a two-run shot in the seventh inning which helped put away the game for good. Since August 31, Tom is batting .405 (17-for-42) with five home runs and 10 RBIs.

Clarke Schmidt, RHP, Yankees. Schmidt helped Double-A Trenton to win game three against Bowie in the Eastern League finals. While he only went 4 2/3 innings, Schmidt allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks. The righthander had his swing-and-miss stuff working, as he struck out nine batters along the way. Schmidt spent two stints on the injured list this season, but managed to accrue 90 2/3 innings this year in total which was over three times what he tossed in 2018 (23 1/3 innings).

Kris Bubic, LHP, Royals. Bubic pitched well for high Class A Wilmington who ended up losing a close game to Fayetteville in game three of the Carolina League championship. The lefthander went 5 2/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits and two walks. Bubic also struck out eight batters. Bubic has been on a roll as of late, pitching to a 1.68 ERA in his last 64 1/3 innings pitched. He was hit around for a few starts after his promotion to high Class A Wilmington in late May, but the lefthander posted a sub-2 ERA in both July and August.
