Giovanny Urshela, 3B-CAR: 4-4, 2B, R.
Going into yesterday's action, Urshela was hitting just .211/.277/.263 for high-A Carolina. What a difference a day makes, as the 20-year old 3B is now up to .262/.319/.348 overall after his 4-4 outing yesterday evening. Urshela is still young for the league, having been promoted from Lake County despite hitting just .238/.262/.347 with 9 HR and 46 RBI last season. The main reason he's considered a prospect is not his bat, it's his glove. Like Kyle Bellows at AA Akron, Urshela has the potential to win a Gold Glove at 3B someday, and his glove is way ahead of his bat at this stage of his development. There's a lot to like here, as he's been playing in very difficult hitting environments as one of the younger players in his respective league for the past two seasons. He added some muscle in the offseason and should continue to fill out as he matures, but is now a solid 6', 200lbs at the hot corner. If his bat improves, then worst-case he could be a Jack Hannahan type in the show. If his bat ever catches up to his glove, then he could end up being something special.
Jeremie Tice, 1B-CAR: 3-4, 2 HR (4), 4 RBI, 2 R.
@BigOleChunkyBoy has been feasting on opposing pitchers of late, recording at least one hit in 9 of his last 10 games and putting up a blistering .389/.476/.833 line (1.310 OPS!) with 4 HR and 11 RBI in that timeframe. Overall, Tice has worked his season line all the way up to .310/.420/.621 after a slow start, which has him 5th in the Carolina League in OPS. He's a 25-year old who is pretty much limited to DH in the field, so he has to flat-out rake to be considered a prospect, but he's holding up his end of the bargain so far. There's not a lot of room above him in Akron, so he's really going to have to force the issue if he's going to get called up to AA this year. A couple more weeks like this will be awfuly hard to ignore though, so if he can stay hot then the Indians will have to see what he can do against competition more his age and experience level.
