Minor League Minutes: 8/5/2021

First and foremost…

This is so much bigger than baseball. Our fearless leader, Alex Duvall, and his wife welcomed a baby boy into the world two nights ago. Congrats to the Duvalls! The RFR Family got a little bigger.

Last Night’s Results

Low A: Columbia Fireflies fell to Myrtle Beach, 4

High A: Quad Cities beat Cedar Rapids, 8-5 their 6th in a row

Double A: NWA sweeps a doubleheader against the Arkansas Travelers, winning both 5-1

Triple A: Omaha lost to the Columbus Clippers, 6-4

MiLB Players of the Month

Massey has been awesome all year for the River Bandits this season. It shouldn’t be too much longer now until we get to see him get a bump to Northwest Arkansas.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but MJ Melendez has been un-friggin-believable this season. He’s just demolished AA pitching all season long. After his Bash Brothers in Nick Pratto and Bobby Witt Jr. got promoted to Omaha, he got scorching hot and hasn’t stopped mashing.

Speaking of MJ Melendez…

Presented without further commentary:

Oh look, another Bobby Witt Jr highlight!!

Other News and Notes:

Kale Emshoff has been on fire lately:

Griffin Conine continues to keep pace with MJ in the MiLB home run race

A+ tweet from the Royals tonight…
