TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
RHP Pedro Avila (HiA Lake Elsinore – San Diego) 20 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, Win
Season Stats: 1-3, 4.86 ERA, 33.1 IP, 39 H, 18 ER, 15 BB, 45 K in 8 appearances with 7 starts
  • Avila came to the Padres via the Derek Norris trade with the Nationals back in December 2016. The young Venezuelan was quickly moving through the Nationals system after getting signed in 2014. He debuted with the DSL Nationals in 2015 and was brought to the U.S to make one start in August. I selected Avila as my Nationals “One to Watch” for 2016 and he proceeded to breakout at full season Hagerstown. He made my 2015 UTR Organizational All-Star roster prior to the trade to the Padres. Avila is one of the youngest pitchers at the HiA level along with Triston McKenzie and Roniel Raudes.
National League – Starters
LHP Logan Allen (LoA Fort Wayne – San Diego) 20 years old
6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 1.76 ERA 
  • Padres #19 ranked prospect
RHP Duncan Robinson (LoA South Bend – Chicago Cubs) 23 years old
6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1.36 ERA
  • Robinson has only made 4 starts of his 9 appearances and has been lights out. Not by missing a ton of bats, but being very stingy on runs scored. In 23.1 innings, the 9th rounder (2016) has only allowed 2 earned runs (0.77 ERA), also a 0.77 WHIP, and only 12 strikeouts. The Cubs have been alternating Robinson back and forth from the bullpen.
RHP Jesus Reyes (HiA Daytona – Cincinnati) 24 years old
7 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, Win 5-1, 3.38 ERA
 
 
 
National League – Relief
 RHP Tyler Peyton (LoA South Bend – Chicago Cubs) 23 years old
3 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, Win 1-0
  • Peyton gets his first pro win in only his second appearance. The 29th round selection (2016) out of the Big Ten (Iowa), finally graduates from extended spring training. His collegiate career took its toll on Peyton, as he dealt with numerous injuries.
 

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

RHP Nick Neidert (HiA Modesto – Seattle) 20 years old
5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, Win
Season Stats: 5-0, 3.20 ERA, 50.2 IP, 45 H, 18 ER, 9 BB, 56 K in 10 appearances 
  • Neidert gets his third win in a row and his 3rd appearances as the AL Top Pitcher of the Day – May 13th & April 11th. He also was a 2016 UTR Organizational All-Star after posting only modest stats last season. Over his last 5 starts, the Mariners top pitching prospect (#4) has posted a 1:32 K:BB, but a scary 63% flyball percentage.

6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, Win 3-4, 5.91 ERA
