Minor League Minutes: 7/6/19

Check out the most recent edition of our mid-season Royals prospect rankings: 10-7.

Cancel’s overall production at the plate could use some work, but what he’s done in the power department this year is legit. Among all qualified hitters under the age of 25, in all AA leagues, here is how Cancel ranks in certain categories:

  • Doubles (19) – t5th
  • HR (14) – t5th
  • ISO (.226) – t8th
  • OPS (.828) – t18th
  • SLG% (.493) – 15th

Drew gives us an update on the Royals J2 signings. 

Baseball America is reporting the Royals have also signed SS Jorge Morales, LHP Jose Castillo, and SS Jorge Celado.  A lot of times, players commit to a team and agree to sign in advance.  Information can be hard to find on a lot of players and many seemingly unknown guys turn into solid MLB players.

Doc writes up a prospect watch on OF Eric Cole.

Now 75 games into the season with Lexington, Cole’s power has slowly been on the uptick (.261/.336/.394, .731 OPS, 22 XBH), while his strikeouts and walks have maintained 2018’s pace (0.63 BB/K in 2018, 0.61 in 2019). He was nearly a 1:1 on BB/K for the month of June (22 BB, 24 K).
