6/23 Class A Minor League Report

With the California and Carolina leagues both having the night off, here are some significant performances from the Florida State League.


Todd Frazier

  • 1-3 HR(6) 2 RBI—.286 6 HR 25 RBI since his promotion to Sarasota


Dylan Owen

  • 5IP 6H ER 7K—5-1 2.53 ERA 59K/57IP


Logan Morrison

  • 2-5 2R BB—.500 19 Hits 11 RBI last 10 games


Scott Cousins

  • 2-5 R BB—4-13 since his return from DL

Adrian Cardenas

  • 2-3 2R BB SB(9)—.313 4 HR 18 RBI 23BB/32K


Edgar Garcia

  • 7IP 5H 2ER BB 8K (W)—7-2 4.05 ERA 69K/73IP


BUY/SELL Analysis


Adrian Cardenas is ranked as the 2nd best prospect in the Philadelphia Phillies organization by Baseball America.  Cardenas is advertised as being a thick and strong middle infielder who has plenty power potential.  This season, he has hit very well at High A Clearwater (.319 4 HR 19 RBI).  The power has not progressed as much as I expected, but his plate discipline and average has been noteworthy given his youth.  Cardenas has 1st year cards in the 2006 Bowman products with his autographs in Bowman Chrome Draft and Bowman Sterling being the most popular.  Currently his Bowman Chrome DP autos sell for $22-26 and his Sterling autos sell for $14-16.  It will be interesting to see if he continues to play 2nd base in an organization that has the best 2B in baseball, Chase Utley.  I see Cardenas being a 3B at the major league level given his strong arm and below average range.

Market Advice: Cardenas seems to be a good value at these prices.  I would like to see his power progress and I do believe that his body is physically mature at 5-11 190 lbs.  I would BUY an auto, with the Bowman Sterling being the best values.
