Seven Reasons The New International Rules Are Backward

Top 10 Fantasy Prospects

HITTER OF THE DAY: Jorge Bonifacio, rf, Double-A Northwest Arkansas (Royals).

Bonifacio was the Royals' fourth-ranked prospect entering the season but fell to sixth in the Midseason Prospect Update because he moved away from what made him successful and began to try to pull the ball more. The results have not been good. Bonifacio is slashing .226/.298/.306 and that's after a career-best five-hit night on Thursday. The Royals had hoped shortening his stride would help tap into his raw power, but Bonifacio has only four homers while striking out 128 times. He's still just 21 at Double-A, but he hasn't homered in 50 games since the all-star break.

PITCHER OF THE DAY: Mike Wright, rhp — Triple-A Rochester (Orioles)

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound righthander also took a fall in our Midseason Prospect Update, dropping from eighth off the list after struggling mightily in the first half. But the East Carolina alum has turned things around, culminating in Thursday night's near no-hitter in Durham. Wright struck out a career-high 11 and was one strike away from a no-no when Mikie Mahtook hit an RBI double after Cole Figueroa reached on a throwing error by Alexi Casilla. Wright ended up allowing two unearned runs over 8 2/3 innings. Overall, Wright is 5-11, 4.83, but since the all-star break he's 4-3, 2.18 with just seven walks in 45 1/3 innings.
