Top prospect performers

Luis Robert, OF and Jonathan Stiever, RHP, White Sox Nos. 1 and 7
Another day, another Robert highlight. The White Sox No. 1 prospect hit his 30th homer of the year on Saturday night, becoming the second player in the Minors (Kyle Tucker, Astros) to join the 30-30 club this season. Robert, who has also swiped 36 bases, has a chance to become the first 30-40 player in the Minors since 2013. The No. 5 overall prospect has put together a tremendous year at the plate and is batting .333 across a trio of levels.

Stiever put together another quality start as he fired six scoreless innings for Class A Advanced Winston-Salem. The 22-year-old, a fifth-round pick from last year’s Draft, gave up six hits and walked one, but struck out five and was able to work his way out of trouble. Stiever hasn’t allowed a run in two of his past three starts and has pitched to a 2.22 ERA through 11 starts with the Dash. White Sox prospect stats »

Genesis Cabrera, LHP, Cardinals No. 9
There’s dominating on the mound, then there’s what Cabrera did on Saturday night for Triple-A Memphis. The Cardinals’ No. 9 prospect not only matched his career high with 12 strikeouts over seven scoreless innings, but he fanned nine in a row from the second to the sixth inning. The 22-year-old, whom the Cardinals acquired in a 2018 trade with the Rays, was lights-out as he threw 69 of his 107 pitches for strikes, yielded just one hit and carved his way through the Omaha lineup.

Logan Gilbert, RHP, Mariners No. 2
Runs have been tough to come by against Gilbert recently and the Mariners’ No. 2 prospect doesn’t appear to be showing any signs of letting up. The 2018 first-round pick extended his scoreless streak to 18 innings with six scoreless frames for Double-A Arkansas. The right-hander threw 56 of his 84 pitches for strikes, walked one and struck out six as he lowered his ERA to 2.17 through his first eight starts at the Double-A level. Gilbert has now strung together three straight scoreless starts and last yielded a run on Aug. 8. Mariners prospect stats »

Gerardo Carrillo, RHP, Dodgers No. 22
Double-digit strikeout performances are always special and they’re even more noteworthy when they represent a career high. That was the case for Carrillo on Saturday as he collected 11 strikeouts over seven innings for Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga. The 20-year-old, whom the Dodgers signed in 2016, did give up two runs on four hits, but pitched well enough to pick up his fourth win of the season. Carrillo has pitched to a 5.71 ERA this season, but is finishing the season strong, having allowed three runs over his past two starts (12 2/3 innings). Dodgers prospect stats »

John Doxakis, LHP, Rays No. 21
It’s hard to pitch much better than Doxakis did for Class A Short-Season Hudson Valley on Saturday. The Rays’ No. 21 prospect, a 2019 Draft pick (second round), threw 35 of his 56 pitches for strikes and struck out four over four no-hit innings. Doxakis has pitched to a 2.20 ERA through the first 11 appearances (nine starts) of his career and has held his opponents scoreless in seven of those outings. Rays prospect stats »

Orelvis Martinez, SS, Blue Jays No. 8
A doubleheader means batters have twice as many opportunities to pad their stats, and that’s exactly what Martinez did as the Blue Jays’ No. 8 prospect went deep in both ends of a doubleheader for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. The 17-year-old, whom the Blue Jays signed last July, went 1-for-3 in each game and is hitting .270 with six homers through 39 games. Blue Jays prospect stats »

Cole Roederer, OF, Cubs No. 6
Make that three straight multihit performances for Roederer. The 2018 Draft pick (77th overall) went 3-for-4 with Class A South Bend on Saturday and is 7-for-12 (.583) over the past three games. The recent hot stretch is a good sign for Roederer, who has struggled a bit this season and is hitting .229 through 101 games. Cubs prospect stats »

Parker Dunshee, RHP, Athletics No. 24
Dunshee struck out nine over 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his latest gem for Triple-A Las Vegas. The 24-year-old, a seventh-round pick from the 2017 Draft, has now surrendered two runs or less in six straight appearances (five starts), a span of 30 1/3 innings. Dunshee got off to a fast start Saturday night as he retired each of the first 11 batters he faced and ended his night having thrown 62 of his 92 pitches for strikes. Athletics prospect stats »

Luis Campusano, C, Padres No. 8
Campusano matched his career high, a total he set in 2017, with four RBIs for Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore on Saturday night. The 20-year-old, a second-round pick from the 2017 Draft, finished 2-for-6 and drove in runs via groundouts in the second and fourth innings. He then capped his performance with a two-run single in the eighth. Padres prospect stats »
