Trade Central: Jays Acquire Lefty-Masher Valencia

NOTE: Because of scheduled maintenance on the part of the service we use to email the report, the Prospect Report will be available next week only at baseballamerica.com. We apologize for the inconvenience.

PITCHER OF THE DAY: Kevin Ziomek, lhp — low Class A West Michigan  (Tigers)

Ziomek struck out 13 over six innings against Kane County on Monday, his second consecutive double-digit strikeout game. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound second-rounder last year now has 112 strikeouts in 95.1 innings and has walked only four in his past four appearances. Ziomek has a fastball that parks at 88-92 mph and hits 94, and a changeup that flashes above average.

HITTER OF THE DAY: Maikel Franco, 3b, Triple-A Lehigh Valley (Phillies)

Franco, the Phils' No. 2 prospect in our Midseason Prospect Update, got off to an awful start after a terrific 2013, hitting bottom on June 23, when he was batting .207. But the righthanded hitter has rebounded, batting .352 (31-for-88) in July with 21 RBIs and three homers. On Monday, he was 4-for-4 with a homer and has his average back to a more respectable .241.
