A+ – Rancho July Stat Snapshot & Review

Hitters: Top ten prospect Yusniel Diaz was just promoted to AA Tulsa. At 20 Diaz is having a solid season but nothing stands out.

Mieses has now hit eight home runs in his last twelve games giving him twenty-four for the season and making the Baseball America hot sheet. The Scoop: The muscle-bound Dominican has a lot of swing-and-miss to his game, but when he gets a hold of one, the ball is a safe bet to clear 400 …
