Minor League round up, September 26

+

You’ll be hard pressed to find a player who had a better year than Schmitt, who started the year as a glove-first player in High-A, had a 132 wRC+ there, got promoted to AA where he had a 144 wRC+, and seems to be fitting in just fine in AAA. If he keeps this up, he’ll be making his Major League debut in 2023. While those were the stars of the game, the next-best offensive performance also came from a great source: second baseman Will Wilson (No. 18 CPL), who hit 1-3 with a walk. Wilson was wiping away a highly forgettable 2021 with a lovely first half of the season, and had just gotten promoted to AAA when he suffered an injury on June 22. He didn’t return until a rookie ball rehab assignment starting on August 9, and made it back to A-ball after his 60-day IL stint ended, re-joining AA Richmond on August 24 due to a positional logjam in Sacramento. Good to see him get a few more at bats in AAA before the season ends. He’ll surely start 2023 there.
