Missions 6 – Midland Rockhounds 7
Prospect Watch: I wrote it a month ago when McElroy was hitting .210 that he was coming around. Since then he has raised his batting average another 50 points. In April he had an OPS of .506, in May it rose to .756, and thus far in June he has a stellar .906 OPS. He is hitting, drawing walks and hitting for some power. He is doing everything you want out of a middle infielder.
Storm 12 – High Desert Mavericks 8
Prospect Watch: Hopefully Alberth Martinez is having a bi-polar season. In April he hit over .300 with an .834 OPS. That number plummeted in May as he hit just .212 with a .588 OPS. June hits with Martinez mired in a slump and immediately he gets on base and drives in runs. Since then he has reached base safely in every game in June and hitting a robust .333/.395/.528.

TinCaps 3 – Lansing Lugnuts 2
Prospect Watch: Prior to the game today, De Horta told the local media that he was working on his control. He then proceeded to walk the first batter of the game. De Horta was voted as the top pitcher, by stuff, in the AZL last year. He has great potential, but had issues with control. Last year it was 13 walks in 31 innings, this year it has taken a step back with 38 walks in 47 innings. De Horta is only 19, but has a ways to go before his performances match his potential.
