Double-A: San Antonio Missions (59-61)

The San Antonio Missions lost the rubber game of a three-game series against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals 5-1. The Missions had a decent showing from the systems top prospects; Cory Spangenberg, Austin Hedges, and Hunter Renfroe. Spangenberg and Renfroe both went 2-for-4 and Hedges went 1-for-4 on the night. All three of these prospects I believe still have a solid year of seasoning (barring significant injuries) before they see the Majors on a regular basis. Neither of them have played about the Double-A level and so it will be interesting to see how their bats respond as there are promoted and start playing against Triple-A competition. Hedges is already defensive ready. He has been complimented by many scouts throughout baseball with his defense, ability to call and game and work with pitchers, and his cannon of an arm to throw out would be base stealers. My guess is we will see these three as late season call-ups in 2015.
