The Prospect Pulse: July 8th, 2012


The Prospect Pulse is a recap of some of the top performances in the minors from the previous day. Prospects are sorted by the league in which they play with their parent club is listed in parentheses. I will typically select 5-6 performances for each league but will vary that based on the number of games played. In addition, a hitter and pitcher of the day will be selected at the end of each article.

Editor’s Note: I apologize for the slight delay on today’s Prospect Pulse, I have been enjoying the All-Star festivities here in Kansas City the last couple of days and I’ve fallen behind on a number of projects as a result.
