The Prospect Pulse: July 13th, 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.

Pitcher and Hitter of the Day

Lynchburg’s Cody Martin and Louisville’s Denis Phipps with Billings’ Daniel Pigott getting an honorable mention*.
