–Jesus Montero, NYY, C, Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees (#3): Montero is still mouldering away at SWB, mainly because the Yankees do not have a regular place for him to play every day, except for possibly DH. They don’t want to have the kid start his career just batting, and so we must wait (Insert Second Coming joke here). His average has dropped to .315, but he is showing more power of late, hitting 2 HR and 3 doubles in his last ten. His walk/k ratio still sucks though (8/31).
–Brett Lawrie, TOR, 2b/3b, Vegas 51s (#40): Lawrie is back to hitting for average to go along with his prodigious power. He is at .375/.490/.800 with 4 HRs, 13 RBIs, 9 BBs, and 7 Ks over his last ten. He already has more HRs this year (11) than last year (8) in 92 fewer games. But blah blah blah his glove is nonexistent blah blah blah.
–Adrian Cardenas, OAK, DH/2b, Sacramento River Cats (unranked): The beat goes on for Cardenas average wise, as he hit .411 over his last ten. He also showed some power, slugging .618 (though just one hit went over the fence). Still getting on base over 40% of the time.
–Brandon Guyer, TB, OF, Durham Bulls (unranked): Guyer is at .176/.300/.206 over his past ten. Looking more and more like the HR in his major league debut was a giant fluke
-Yonder Alonso, CIN, OF, Louisville Bats (#73): Alonso is rolling along at .375/.468/.550 in his last ten. More importantly, he had 7 walks to 4 strikeouts; patience increases call up potential IMO.
