—The perspective n. 2 of club Nico Hoerner continues to hit the ball hard. Wednesday’s second baseman / shorttop scored two more hits in four at-bats, scored twice and led in two heats in the team’s defeat against the Reds. Hoerner started the season with a streak of five games, scoring seven hits in 18 at-bats while knocking on five points.
Chicago White Sox
—Luis Robert on Wednesday provided insurance runs and stole a base in the team’s victory over the Indians. Robert, the number 2 prospect in baseball, hit a two-shot single in the middle to knock on two shots. The midfielder is riding a streak of six games to begin his big league career and is 8 of 23 with a home run and four RBI in that time frame.
—The perspective n. Shogo Akiyama’s 8 turned into the first multi-hit game of his career in the team’s victory over the Cubs on Wednesday. Akiyama, who signed a $ 21 million three-year deal with the Reds in January, had four hits in 15 at-bats in six games. He walked twice and drove in one race.
—One day after hitting his first heat at home of the season, Sam Hilliard picked up a hit in two at-bats on Wednesday before being lifted for a pinch in the sixth inning of the team’s victory over A. Prospect # 1. Rockies’ 7 is 3 out of 7 in the last two games after starting the season with a score of 0 out of 6.
—Cristian Cristian Javier’s # 8 prospect in the team’s loss to the Dodgers made the first start of his career, throwing 5.2 innings, allowing a two-stroke race, walking one and hitting eight beats. He led the way with his 93-95 mph fast ball as he mingled with his curved ball and gearbox to stifle the Dodgers’ hitters. The right arm does not have great things, but it has launched well at every stop of his professional career.
Satisfactory start. # ForTheH pic.twitter.com/h2n93oQmvE

Los Angeles Dodgers
—Dgers May’s # 2 prospect, Dustin May, struggled with his command and threw only 3.1 innings into the team’s victory over Astros. The right arm threw 76 shots, allowed a three-stroke run, walked two hitters and hit three. He was removed after throwing a walk and a single to put the runners on the first and second with one out in the fourth inning. May failed to pass the fifth inning in consecutive starts to start the season after throwing just 4.1 innings on July 23rd. May in 2019 he launched at least 5.1 innings in each of his four league-level starts.
—Payer number 14 of the prospect, Edwin Rios hit a two-shot home run in the 13th inning to launch the Astros. The corner infielder only had one at-bat in play despite hitting .277 with four home runs in 2019 and impressed on the summer camp, but more game time may be coming soon.

—The Brewers on Wednesday added midfielder Hedbert Perez to the team’s 60-player pool. The seventeen year old Venezuelan, who ranked number 8 in the 2019 international signature class, has a high contact rate and potential for more power to move forward with more speed and above-average defense in the center of the field.
New York Mets
—Mets prospect number 6 Andres Gimenez on Wednesday counted the first two hits of his career in the team’s loss to the Red Sox. The short recorded his first hit in the second inning on a single field to the left before hitting a triple over the head of Jackie Bradley Jr. to drive in a race in the sixth inning. Gimenez, who is 2-for-8 in six games this season, stood out in the Arizona Fall League in 2019, hitting .371 / .413 / .586 with two home runs and 15 RB in 18 games.
First RBI career for @andresgimenez and let’s take the lead! #LGM pic.twitter.com/1uyJ6AZyfF

MLB Prospect Summer Camp Summary: July 21st
Nate Pearson faces the Red Sox, Jesus Sanchez sides against the Braves and much more in today’s collection.
—Gesus Luzardo made his second appearance of the season in the team’s defeat against the Rockies on Wednesday, entering the sixth inning from the bullpen and hitting five beats on 3.2 innings, allowing three shots (one earned) on four shots and two walks . Luzardo sat 95-98 mph on his fast ball and mixed in his breaking and changing ball. The southpaw has confused the hitting players in his first two innings, getting five swings and misses on his breaking ball, three on his gearbox and two on his fast ball, but he started to falter in the eighth inning. Luzardo allowed back-to-back shots, including a double RBI, to start the frame, but he fought backwards and withdrew the next three out of four. In the ninth inning, Luzardo allowed two additional batters to reach the base before being taken home thanks to a fielding error. Luzardo was therefore removed from the game with two outs.
A # 1 prospect made its debut on July 25 in 2020, launching three raised innings for the team’s loss to the Angels, hitting two batsmen, walking one and allowing a hit. Luzardo tested positive for the coronavirus and didn’t join the team until July 17th, which means he will likely be facilitated in the initial rotation as he rounds up the form.

San Diego Padres
—Padres n. Prospectus Edward Olivares scored two hits on Wednesday, scored a run and knocked on a run in the team’s loss to the Giants. The defender hit safely in three of four games and is 4 out of 9 with two RBI in the season.
—With three hits in Wednesday’s game against the Angels, Mariners’ potential number 10 Kyle Lewis extended his hit streak to six games to start the season. The midfielder is now 11-for-24 (.458) with two home throws and five RBI.
—The perspective n. Mariners’ 9 Justin Dunn fought in his first start of the season, throwing only three more innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit, walking three and hitting two. Dunn gave up on a three-shot run in the fourth inning before exiting the game. The right arm struggled to put the blows away after retiring six of the first seven batters he faced.
Cardinals of St. Louis
—Cardinal Kodi Whitley’s prospect number 21 threw 1.2 innings unscored on Wednesday and hit two beats in the team’s defeat against the twins. The right arm relied on a mix of three shots, leading the way with a 92-94 mph fast ball. Whitley has appeared in two games this season, recording three strikeouts in 2.2 innings with no score.
Toronto Blue Jays
—Blue Jays’ # 1 prospect Nate Pearson made her championship debut, throwing five unmarked innings, allowing two hits and hitting five beats while walking two. Pearson relied primarily on his 80 degree fast ball, which was at 95-99 mph, and his slider more for hitting stymies. The only real problem he faced was the third inning after conceding a single two and walking to put the runners on the first and second. Pearson convinced Asdrubal Cabrera to end the innings. The right arm has withdrawn the last six beats it has faced, three through strikeouts. Pearson has what it takes to become a starter on the front lines and his debut has reinforced this idea.

—A day after recording the first blow of his career in the grand league, potential number 23 Blue Jays Santiago Espinal showed his prowess on the pitch with a hard first base shot to prevent an infield hit.
Saints NEVER jump arm day ????
