Rank Player Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Dietrich Enns SWB

Finally promoted back to Triple-A and tossed 6.2 more shutout innings in his first time back out there

2 Kyle Higashioka TRE Didn't have a great week by his 2016 standards but he still had three multi-hit games 2
3 Aaron Judge SWB Like Higgy it isn't a banner week for Judge when he's not hitting a bunch of homers but he still hit safely in five of his six games 3
4 Miguel Andujar TRE Like with Higgy and Judge, 'Miggy' had to cool off somewhat sooner or later; had just two hits last week but still drove home six runs 4
5 Tyler Austin SWB Not everyone at the top is cooling off; Austin had four more doubles [he leads the farm by a lot] and a home run this past week 7
6 Jake Cave SWB Like the other top hitters he's gone from All-World to just solid lately 5
7 Domingo Acevedo TAM Struck out a career-high 12 batters in his last outing; has a combined 1.01 WHIP ratio in A-ball so far 10
8 Chance Adams TRE A rain delay didn't allow him to turn things around in his last outing; still, he's allowed one earned run or less in three of his first four Double-A starts 8
9 Nestor Cortes CHA Hottest pitcher in the farm system and WHIP ratio leader [0.75] needs a promotion; he hasn't allowed a South Atlantic League run since June 9th 19
19 Josh Rogers TAM Obviously making the high-A adjustment; has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his last six starts 18
11 Daniel Camarena TRE Had just his second Double-A clunker this season in his last outing; he still ranks third in starter ERA among active pitchers and second in WHIP [0.98] 9
12 Jordan Montgomery TRE Had another shutout performance in his last outing, giving him five of his last six starts allowing two earned runs or less 15
13 Giovanny Gallegos SWB Gave up a run in an appearance for just the second time in Triple-A but he still has more strikeouts than innings pitched 16
14 Tyler Wade TRE Gets back in the rankings with 11 runs scored and two home runs in his last 10 games; leads the farm in walks [44] and runs scored [57] NR
15 Chris Gittens CHA Holding steady with a pedestrian week, hitting one double and one home runs 14
16 Jose Campos TRE Alarming trend? He's allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last four starts 13
17 Jorge Mateo TAM It is an alarming trend; he hit just .194 in June with just four walks 11
18 Ben Gamel SWB Going in the opposite direction, Gamel hit .336 in the month of June and already has more home runs in July [1] than he did in June [0] 17
19 Dustin Fowler TRE Not a standout performer like last season but he's been as steady as they come; ranks fourth in total bases [129], tied with Cave 20
20 Abiatal Avelino TAM Like Wade, Avelino [in the photo above] has had one of the more underrated seasons thus far NR

Others considered for the Top 20: Cody Carroll, Billy Fleming, Thairo Estrada, Ronald Herrera, Jonathan Holder, Hoy Jun Park, Mark Payton, Yeffrey Ramirez, Gary Sanchez, Daris Vargas, and Zach Zehner.
