2014 First-Rounders So Far

Game Report: Watching Four Top Prospects In One Night

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

It was a Vandy two-step for the Whitecaps Monday night. Ziomek, a Commodore who was a second-rounder last season by Detroit, struck out a career-best 11 batters over seven shutout innings before Adam Ravenelle closed out the 2-0 win over Burlington with two perfect innings. Ziomek threw 63 of 88 pitches for strikes to improve to 8-6, 2.32. Ravenelle, who saved Vanderbilt's CWS-clinching win last month, has pitched three innings as a pro, striking out four.

HITTER OF THE DAY: Mitch Garver, rf, low Class A Cedar Rapids (Twins)

Garver, a ninth-round pick of the Twins last year, was one of the top senior talents and a bargain sign for Minnesota at $40,000. Scouts weren't sure he'd stay at catcher, but he's done so through the first 141 games as a pro, although he's been a DH and played some first this season. On Monday, Garver cracked three homers and knocked in five runs in an 8-1 win over Fort Wayne. The righty batter now has 12 homers in 307 at-bats after hitting only two in 202 ABs at Rookie-level Elizabethon in 2013.
