Baseball America Prospect Report -- April 22, 2019



Yonathan Daza, OF, Rockies. The leadoff hitter for Triple-A Albuquerque had four hits including two doubles and four runs scored. The Rockies’ No. 19 prospect is now batting .394/.417/.576. While not a home run hitter, Daza has value as a tough out at the plate and boasts elite defensive skills in center field.

Brian Miller, OF, Marlins. Miller fell a home run short of the cycle for Double-A Jacksonville on Saturday. He collected five hits, including a double and a triple. The Marlins’ No. 14 prospect doesn’t have much power, but has other solid tools that will help him to profile as a fourth outfielder.

Mitch Keller, RHP, Pirates. The Pirates’ top prospect tossed six scoreless innings for Triple-A Indianapolis, allowing two hits and three walks. Keller collected eight strike outs, including five of his first seven outs recorded. The righthander made the most of his curveball, throwing it for strikes and using it to keep hitters off his heater.

Isan Diaz, 2B, Marlins. Diaz had a three-hit day from the second spot in the lineup for Triple-A New Orleans. The Marlins’ No. 9 prospect had two singles and a double while driving in four runs. The offensive-minded Diaz should get some at-bats with the big league club this season.

Jazz Chisholm, SS, Diamondbacks. Chisholm busted out of a 3-for-41 skid with two home runs and a walk for Double-A Jackson on Saturday. The Diamondbacks’ top prospect had a solo home run in the second inning, followed by a two-run shot to right field in the seventh 
inning. While he does have some swing and miss to his game, Chisholm has the tools to be a  20-home run, 20-stolen base threat in the future.

Keury Mella, RHP, Reds.  Mella was on his game for Triple-A Louisville. The Reds’ No. 15 prospect threw seven scoreless innings, scattering four hits and striking out seven batters. With one option remaining, 2019 will be a make-or-break year for the righthander. Mella may be best suited for bullpen work if he can further improve his slider or changeup to go with his already plus fastball.

Josh Naylor, OF, Padres. Naylor and his teammate Ty France hit back-to-back home runs twice for Triple-A El Paso. He is now batting .270/.360/.541.The Padres’ No. 9 prospect has a good enough bat to be a plus hitter with power but lacks a true position in the field.
