Overview

The biggest story out of Triple-A has been the performance of 2014 first-round pick Tyler Beede, who has simplified his repertoire and carried over the success he enjoyed during spring training. It’s only a matter of time before he gets another shot in the majors.

Outfielders Mike Gerber (1.062 OPS, 7 2B, 6 HR, 14 RBI) and Mac Williamson (1.121 OPS, 3 2B, 6 HR, 15 RBI) are both off to hot starts at the plate, and the same is true of third baseman Zach Green (1.003 OPS, 4 2B, 5 HR, 12 RBI).

Veteran relievers Fernando Abad (6 G, 3 SV, 1.04 ERA, 11.4 K/9) and Pat Venditte (9 G, 2.40 ERA, 10.8 K/9) are also off to nice starts, and might have already gotten a shot in the majors if not for the stellar health and performance of the bullpen thus far.

On the flip side, Andrew Suarez (5.89 ERA) and Steven Okert (4.97 ERA) have not pitched particularly well after entering the season as two of the better depth options on the roster.
