Adell 3-5 tonight with a double.  

10 for his last 26 not including those 2hrs that got washed out.  3 doubles during that stretch.  Still whiffing a ton and not really walking much, but it's a good start.  

Rojas hit his 30th.  He now has 30/105 with a .955 ops.  I hope they call him up for sept.

knowles 2/4, double. 

Jackson back in the lineup.  1-4 with a double and 3k

deveaux debut at orem didn't go well.  0-5 with 5k.  

Caleb Scires, a 20yo (soon to be 21 in about 4 days) is a 17th rounder in 2017.  LHed hitter.  Plays OF.  2-5 tonight with his 5th multi hit game in a row.  Picked up from a texas JC.  He's got a .911 ops for the season with a ton of walks and a ton of K (45k and 17bb in 97 at bats).

Adell, Marsh, and Jackson all had terrific years. Three really really good raw hitting prospects. Adell obviously the highest upside but man Marsh is looking like he could be a table setter for years to come.

Brandon Marsh with another multi-hit game, 2-4 with a double, to bring his average up to .301 and OPS up to .817

He is having a great year, especially when you compare him to others in the league and then look at his age.

Our 2018 5th round draft pick, William Holmes (William English), is 2-2 with a double, 2 walks and 4 RBI's in his Orem Owlz debut tonight as the DH.

fun guy to follow.  He's becoming a guy that I specifically look to see his results.  

He's only a month older than knowles who's of the top 10 youngest in the league.  

Ultra raw so far but some encouraging stuff as a two way player.  Even though he's walked a ton of guys, he's k'd 25 in 17.1ip.   On the offensive side of things, he's shown solid PD with 7 walk now in about 38 ab.  He's k'd a fair amount but not to an egregious level (less than 30%).  

His bat seems a bit more advanced.  

He hasn't played a defensive position other than when he pitches. Very curious to see if they put him in the field.  I think they should in case he ends up not being a two way player.

I have a secret hope that Holmes could really surprise and be a very good two-way player. Last year he seemed overmatched, but he's really hit quite well so far in Rookie. Wonder if they consider advancing him right to A ball to start next year so he gets a full season.

he just hit his first pro homer.  3-3, hr, double, 2 walks, 6rbi.  

I kinda felt like there was a bit of gimmick to him being a two way player.  I figured he would stay on the mound eventually.  Maybe the bat is legit.

They had Holmes in the outfield before and as I understand he actually looked pretty athletic out there.  I think his upside would be that of a Michael Lorenzen type of player who you can use in the late innings as a reliever, and also as a defensive replacement outfielder and pinch runner.

The two way player thing seems to be taking hold.  Brendan McKay figures to be an ace on the mound and a power bat off the bench in the future.  Lorenzen as I said before is a late inning reliever, defensive replacement, pinch runner and pinch hitter.  Jared Walsh profiles also as a power bat off the bench and a lefty specialist and mop up guy on the mound.  

But really in my mind, there's still only one two way player, and that's Shohei.  The rest of these guys are back ups at the plate with the ability to pitch.  Ohtani's the only one that is an all-star caliber ace on the mound and an all-star caliber DH at the plate.
