Minor League Scorebook

News

Brandon Wood leads this week's Prospect Hot Sheet:
Team: Triple-A Salt Lake (Pacific Coast)
Age: 23
n Why He's Here: .429/.484/1.000 (12-for-28), 5 HR, 1 2B, 10 RBIs, 10 R, 3 BB, 9 SO
The Scoop: Wood crushed a trio of 420-foot home runs last weekend at Fresno to kick off the week in style. But he didn't stop there. He also homered in Salt Lake on both Wednesday and Thursday, and collected four multi-hit games on the week.

No. 12 AUSTIN GALLAGHER, 3B DODGERS
Team: high Class A Inland Empire (California)
Age: 19
Why He's Here: .444/.515/.815 (12-for-27), 6 R, 4 2B, 2 HR, 11 RBIs, 5 BB, 4 SO
The Scoop: Gallagher ranked seventh in the Rookie-level Pioneer League last year, but he was still considered raw. That's what makes Gallagher's season even more impressive. Since joining Inland Empire in late May, Gallagher is batting .326/.372/.522 in 230 at-bats at just 19 years old. Gallagher is a power-hitting third baseman, though he isn't flexible and may end up moving to first base. Gallagher, who is 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, also played basketball and football in high school before the Dodgers made him a third-round pick last season. Now that he's focused on baseball full time, Gallagher has raised his prospect status by moving surprisingly quickly.

No. 13 SEAN O'SULLIVAN, RHP ANGELS
Team: high Class A Rancho Cucamonga (California)
Age: 20
Why He's Here: 1-0, 0.00, 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 SO
The Scoop: O'Sullivan is the fifth-youngest pitcher in the Cal League, and it took him longer to get a hang of it than Alderson, but get the hang of it he has. The stocky righthander had an ERA as high as 6.35 as recently as June 19, but it's under 5.00 now, and he's won eight straight decisions. He's no Livan Hernandez either, giving up seven hits and striking out 12 over 14 innings in his last two outings.

Also in the Helium Watch:
CARLOS SANTANA, C DODGERS
Team: high Class A Inland Empire (California)
Age: 22
Why He's Here: .357/.486/.500 (10-for-28), 4 2B, 7 RBIs, 10 R, 8 BB, 6 SO
The Scoop: The Dodgers plucked Santana out of the Dominican Republic in 2004 and he's always been well-regarded for his defense behind the plate, but his bat has really taken off this year for high Class A Inland Empire. After hitting just .223/.318/.370 in low Class A last year, Santana is batting .323/.431/.563 this year, and his name can be found all over the Cal League's leader boards. He leads the minors in RBIs (96) and his league in on-base percentage and runs scored (88).

Mark Trumbo blasted his 26th home run, second in the Cal League to Stockton's Christopher Carter.

That's Walden's second game like that this year. He's give up 12 unearned runs this year. That seems like a lot.
