Baseball America Prospect Report -- September 20, 2018



Wednesday's Stars

Luke Voit, 1B, Yankees. Picked up in a very modest deal at the deadline, Voit has been a surprising star for Yankees in limited exposure. Voit hit two home runs yesterday in a 4-for-4 day. He's now hitting .323/.400/.634 for the Yankees, having provided the power the Yankees hoped to get from Greg Bird this year. Much like Ryan O'Hearn with the Royals, Voit is hitting better in the big leagues than he ever did in the minors. The 27-year-old has done enough in a limited stint that he's earned a chance to prove that this is more than a fluke.

Miguel Andujar, 3B, Yankees. Andujar's outstanding rookie season understandably gets lost in the wake of Juan Soto, Ronald Acuna and Shohei Ohtani's years, but Andujar has been outstanding. Andujar went 2-for-4 with his 41st double and 25th home run last night. Andujar is hitting .299/.331/.524.

Jake Bauers, 1B, Rays. After a strong start, Bauers has fallen flat. He hit a hard to believe .105 with a .158 slugging percentage in August. September has allowed Bauers to show at least signs he's pulling out of it. Bauers doubled twice yesterday. He's hitting a still poor .200/.321/.422 this month but that's a lot better than .105.

Walker Buehler, RHP, Dodgers. Buehler was great once again. He struck out 12 in six innings, allowing two unearned runs and only three hits. If the Dodgers make it into the playoffs, Buehler will be standing right alongside Clayton Kershaw at the front of the rotation.
