Minor League Minutes: 7/25/18

Marcus breaks down a scorching hot Marten Gasparini, who received the biggest signing bonus of any European prospect ever.

In 2015, he showed enough to leave rookie ball by hitting .259/.341/.411/.752 and was sent to Lexington in 2016 as a 19-year-old outfielder.

True to form, the Royals are growing their next great bullpen down on the farm.

After dominating both levels of A-ball in 2017, Gavin got off to a slow start in 2018, but is picking up right where he left off as of late. He’s starting to find more success in the Naturals bullpen, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him fill in for Omaha when the Royals make their September call-ups.

Last chance to catch up on the latest edition of our mid-season prospect rankings before our next edition comes out later today.
