Short-Season League
RHP Alex Gouin (Northwest League Hillsboro – Arizona) 24 years old
7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 11 K, 2.57 ERA, Win 1-0
Awesome pro debut for Gouin who showed decent control numbers in two seasons out of the Independent Leagues.
 
LoA
RHP Pedro Avila (Hagerstown – Washington) 19 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 2.95 ERA, Win 7-6
HiA
RHP Zach Hedges (Myrtle Beach – Atlanta) 23 years old
6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 2.78 ERA, Win 7-7
TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE 
The 26th round pick in 2014 set a career-high in strikeouts yesterday. I highlighted Hedges during my write-up about the HiA All-Stars. I mentioned that Hedges isn’t a strong strikeout arm and would be a nice #4-#5 type or possible set-up guy. He’s a workhorse that could eat some innings, as he pitched 132 innings in his sophomore season at LoA South Bend. He has increased his K/BB ratio from that season of 2.22 to 3.81 with Myrtle Beach.
 
Top Relief Pitcher Performance
RHP Spencer Mahoney (Appy League Pulaski – New York Yankees) 23 years old
3 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 2.25 ERA
Another kid signed from the Indy League who the Yankees are converting him from a utility infielder to the mound. In three appearances, he has thrown 8 IP with 15 K’s and only one walk.
 
 
RADAR BLIP
LHP Michael Boyle (LoA Great Lakes – Los Angeles Dodgers) 22 years old
6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 2.74 ERA, Win 6-5
The lefty pushed through 3 levels during his debut year after being drafted in the 13 round round in 2015
