Permanent Prospect That Matters post

PTM Update

Stats are either major-league stats (if the player is presently in the majors) or overall minor-league stats (if the player is presently in the minors).

Position Players

Age Position/Player Level PA BA/OBP/SLG OPS 2B HR SO BB

SS Juan Diaz AAA

20 2B Jose Ramirez AA 397 .278/.337/.368 .705 13 3 29 33
19 SS Francisco Lindor AA/A+ 395 .307/.383/.412 .795 19 1 39 42
21 C Tony Wolters A+ 204 .270/.343/.365 .708 8 3 37 20
20 CF Luigi Rodriguez (DL)
A+/A- 222 .275/.368/.370 .739 13 1 61 28
18 SS Dorssys Paulino A- 355 .240/.291/.354 .645 19 4 60 21

With the trading deadline coming up, I would be shocked if one of the Akron infielders isn't part of a major prospect-for-veteran trade, especially Ronny Rodriguez, who seems superfluous with Lindor's promotion. Jose Ramirez has been out of the lineup for most of the week, but so far hasn't been placed on the DL. Tony Wolters in his first professional season as a catcher has done very well, throwing out 17 of 36 potential base stealers.

Pitchers

TJ House has allowed just one runs in his last two starts (12 innings). Shawn Armstrong is back in Akron after a rehab assignment in Arizona. Trey Haley has been excellent in July (9.1 IP, 0.96 ERA), as has Preston Guilmet (9.2 IP, 0.00 ERA).

  • 2B Erlin Cerda (Age 19) 123 PA, .272/.385/.398
  • RHP Jesus Arias (Age 19) 23.0 IP, 2.74 ERA

Luis Lugo has lived up to expectations, holding NYPL hitters to a .205/.227/.342 line. But most of the outstanding performances have been from players a year or two older than the PTM requirements. Carlos Moncrief and Enosil Tejeda in Akron, Cody Anderson and Joe Wendle in Carolina, Nelson Rodriguez in Mahoning Valley, and Clint Frazier and Gerald Bautista in Arizona are the standouts so far in the second half.
