PTM Update

Obviously the standout is Francisco Lindor; he's the second-youngest player in the Carolina League and has the second-highest OPS in the league (minimum 75 PA). He's also putting up these numbers without compromising his plate discipline. With Ronny Rodriguez struggling in Akron, you wonder if the Indians swap the two at the All-Star Break (when promotions are typically made). House and Salazar have also been impressive in the early going; House was promoted to Columbus last week, and Salazar struck out 12 in his last start.

On the other end of the spectrum is Juan Diaz, who has been awful at the plate in April. Ronny Rodriguez is likewise struggling in Akron, though he's been aggressively promoted.

Prospects That Might Matter Update

I'll be revisiting the PTM list at the end of May, when there's enough of a 2013 sample to make any kind of judgment. But until then, here's a list of the prospects not currently a PTM who meets the age criteria, along with some prospects that are producing but need a promotion to make the list (in italics):

Columbus (25 and younger)

  • C Chris Wallace (Age 25) 10 PA, .500/.500/.700
  • OF Cedric Hunter (Age 25) 81 PA, .240/.296/.373
  • RHP Preston Guilmet (Age 25) 12.1 IP, 1.46 ERA
  • RHP Rob Bryson (Age 25) 13.0 IP, 5.54 ERA

Akron (23 and younger)

  • C Jake Lowery (Age 22) 4 PA, .750/.750/1.250
  • C Alex Lavisky (Age 22) 20 PA, .235/.350/.294
  • RHP Will Roberts (Age 22) 6.0 IP, 0.00 ERA
  • OF Carlos Moncrief (Age 24) 107 PA, .261/.340/.337
  • OF Quincy Latimore (Age 24) 103 PA, .258/.330/.409
  • OF Tyler Holt (Age 24) 133 PA, .272/.362/.386
  • DH Chun Chen (Age 24) 113 PA, .344/.460/.559
  • RHP Jordan Cooper (Age 24) 3.0 IP, 0.00 ERA
  • RHP Jose Flores (Age 24) 12.2 IP, 1.42 ERA

Carolina (21 and younger)

  • OF Aaron Siliga (Age 20) 14 PA, .077/.143/.077
  • 1B Ryan Battaglia (Age 21) 3 PA, .000/.333/.000
  • LHP Shawn Morimando (Age 20) 26.0 IP, 3.12 ERA
  • LHP Elvis Araujo (Age 21) 4.2 IP, 1.93 ERA
  • C Charlie Valerio (Age 22) 86 PA, .275/.314/.463
  • CF Tyler Naquin (Age 22) 123 PA, .297/.355/.441
  • 2B Joseph Wendle (Age 23) 59 PA, .426/.508/.596
  • 1B Jerrud Sabourin (Age 23) 117 PA, .343/.427/.402
  • RHP Cody Anderson (Age 22) 34.0 IP, 3.18 ERA
  • RHP Jeff Johnson (Age 23) 10.0 IP, 1.80 ERA
  • RHP Joseph Colon (Age 23) 6.0 IP, 3.00 ERA

Lake County (Age 19 or younger)

  • RF Anthony Santander (Age 18) 16 PA, .333/.375/.400
  • 1B Nelson Rodriguez (Age 19) 110 PA, .202/.345/.270
  • 3B Leonardo Castillo (Age 19) 68 PA, .242/.309/.452
  • C Eric Haase (Age 20) 96 PA, .270/.313/.494
  • CF LeVon Washington (Age 21) 29 PA, .500/.621/.727
  • RHP Jake Sisco (Age 21) 26.2 IP, 2.36 ERA
  • RHP Michael Peoples (Age 21) 15.1 IP, 1.76 ERA
  • LHP Ryan Merritt (Age 21) 24.0 IP, 4.12 ERA
  • RHP Dylan Baker (Age 21) 26.0 IP, 3.81 ERA

Of these prospects, no one's a dead cinch to be added to the PTM list, but I think Preston Guilmet is pretty close, and Anthony Santander and Elvis Araujo would have to completely fall on their faces not to be added. LeVon Washington and Tyler Naquin are probably making the list when they get promoted.
