5/3 High-A Minor League Report

Reese Havens and Yonder Alonso each hit their fifth HR’s of the season and Caleb Gindl added his fourth.  Ryan Kalish and Brandon Laird went deep for the second time this spring and Evan Anundsen won his third game. 

Today’s top prospect in the High-A ranks is San Francisco Giants young RHP Tim Alderson.  The 6-7 20 year old has struggled in the early going, but his seven innings of five hit, two run ball was good enough to net him his first win of the 2009 season.  Alderson has been overshadowed somewhat by the stellar pitching of San Jose teammate Madison Bumgarner, but make no mistake, Alderson has the control and velocity to be a frontline pitcher in the near future and should be an integral cog in San Francisco’s promising young staff in about two years.
